We couldn’t be more thrilled that our 2019 season started off with the intimate winter wedding of this lovely couple! There is nothing quite like celebrating your marriage on a magical, snowy day in the mountains, cozied up in front of a roaring fireplace and sipping hot cocoa. With only 40 guests in attendance, it was important to make the Broad Axe Barn at Devil’s Thumb Ranch feel full despite the small guest count, and one long community table did the trick! Modern + classic details rounded out the design, including a neutral color palette, wintry furs, rustic wood accents to complement the mountain lodge setting, and chic acrylic drink stirrers that doubled as escort cards!

Maggie + Austin have been dear friends of ours for years, so it’s pretty difficult to think about their wedding day without tears, even months later. Plus, this day marked our 100th wedding (!!!) with PSE, so it packs an emotional punch. These two truly focused on the details — personalized snippets that made their celebration feel like “them.” Family heirlooms were highlighted, their dog and cat made appearances, they crafted their own signage and paper goods, and each guest went home with an aspen bark vase, designed by the mother of the bride. We always tell our brides and grooms to “embrace the chaos” on their wedding days and this one proved the point. Unplanned, imperfect things happen; a wedding is a living, breathing entity. Maggie + Austin’s dog stopped midway down the aisle to pee, and instead of cringing, we laughed. It was a moment we will never forget. Continue reading
Katie + Ben’s wedding was one of our very favorites to design! We tell their story to almost all our new clients: After getting to know them a bit, we learned that Ben was a huge lego buff, so we came up with a sophisticated way to incorporate legos into their wedding design. Scroll down to see the finished product from Whimsy Design Studio! We turned white legos into thumb tacks and used them to display all of the escort cards. We absolutely LOVE how it came together! As always, thanks to the rest of this vendor team for being rockstars! Full list is below. Continue reading
Here’s another favorite wedding from Devil’s Thumb Ranch! You’re not going to want to miss the amazing floral element that Emma Lea Floral created for this ceremony. It increased our love for pampas grass, if that’s even possible. Elegant + modern details rounded out the rest of the design. We especially loved the place card agates and signage from Whimsy Design Studio! As always, thanks to Laura Murray Photography for being flawless and capturing this day so wonderfully.

We are so excited to be sharing this winter wedding on the blog today! This was one of the sweetest, most intimate celebrations. A modern geometric theme wove its way through the wedding design, all the way from the hexagon backdrop that the groom crafted himself to the cake decorations. We have so many favorite memories from this day: watching the guests take a shot together to toast the couple for the first time at the end of the ceremony, seeing the bride and groom’s joyous faces as they scurried away together for some post-ceremony alone time, and being dragged to the dance floor by the bridal party to dance the evening’s last song — Shout! Yes, we danced. No, it wasn’t pretty. But, it’s a moment we’ll never forget! Congrats Amanda + John on a fantastic celebration and best wishes for the adventures ahead!
When both the bride and groom are architects, you know their design taste will be spot on! This wedding was full of fall colors + rustic flair. We were so happy to be a part of this magical day! Continue reading
It’s cliché, but there are no words to describe our love for this couple. They make us want to be better people — to be gracious and overflowing with kindness. I am often asked why I chose wedding planning as a career. The fact is that helping brides and grooms create happy memories, ensuring that they remember their wedding days as stress-free, happy occasions is the greatest motivator. Knowing that we succeeded at that goal for this couple gives us chills. Cadíz + Matt, we are so honored to have been involved with this special time in your lives. You + your wedding day will stick with us as eternal reminders of why we do what we do. Hugs, love, and best wishes as always! Continue reading
