Crooked Willow Farms ~ The Wedding Pink 2014

It was an absolute HONOR to be the planners for The Wedding Pink’s 2014 wedding at Crooked Willow Farms for Erica and Mike’s wedding. The Wedding Pink is an annual giveaway to a couple that has recently been touched by breast cancer and Erika and Mike’s story will surely bring tears to your eyes! See our blog post on how they met and their story here.

All Denver vendors donated their services and products to make Erika and Mike’s wedding dreams come true. Their wedding vision was a juxtaposition of organic and natural elements combined with a modern twist. We brought in a neutral color palette of florals in greens, whites, blushes and a hint of purple. For the twist, we played with a gray chevron pattern and brought in a bold coral for the menus and escort cards.

For the ceremony, a custom song was written for them by Hipster Mama Productions that was amazing. Pink Monkey Solutions and A Design Resource brought in drapery, a crystal chandelier and birch tri-pods to display fabulous florals. Splendor for Your Guests donated gray fleece blankets to keep guests cozy. Mike’s mother officiated and there was not a dry eye during the ceremony.

Chic lounge furniture was displayed at cocktail hour and A Music Plus kept the tunes rolling. Erika and Mike brought in their personal touches with a globe guest book and hand made escort cards. Once guests made their way into the reception area, they were treated to more eye candy in the florals, linens, place settings, vintage candy bar, fabulous cake and jamming tunes.

We can’t thank our wonderful Denver vendors enough and Katie Van Buren with Van Buren Photography for the amazing photos!

Spruce Mountain Ranch Wedding: Carly and Cale

This Spruce Mountain Ranch wedding is one for the books! Carly and Cale lived in the same neighborhood growing up and they tied the knot in April at Spruce Mountain Ranch’s Ponderosa Room. 400 of guests entered into Genevieve’s Garden that was turned into a chapel with arched window panes, white pews from Catering By Design and white vintage chairs from Chairished Vintage Rentals.

Right after the ceremony, the bride and groom showed their playful side along with their bridal party by putting on their cool shades. A Design Resource knocked if out of the park with amazing florals and birch pergolas that we placed over a 1/3 of the dining tables. To bring in texture in the cocktail and reception, 5 different linens were used to bring a fun spin on all the tables.

All details were thought of from beautiful ceremony music, custom furniture vignettes, custom painted buffet for the three wedding cakes and numerous personal touches from both families that truly reflected our couple.

Our fabulous vendor team: Spruce Mountain RanchCatering By Design, A Design Resource, JM Photo Art – (thanks for the fabulous photos!), LMD Productions, Chairished Vintage Rentals, Chair Covers & Linens, Cake Heads Bakery, Peak Beverage, Bashpower DJ and Anne Be for the wedding dress.

We were so excited when the wedding was featured in Her Life Magazine!

Cloud 9 Sneak Peek at Crooked Willow Farms

Julianna and John’s Crooked Willow Farms summer wedding last night was absolutely amazing filled with tons of personal mementos and color. This couple was so much fun to work with throughout the planning process. Since the bride and groom were not seeing each other prior to the ceremony, they instead chose to have a blind-folded moment in prayer.

The weather was a bit testy so the wedding ceremony was held in Lola’s Loft at Crooked Willow. This worked out perfectly as the loft provides a soft glow of ambient light that is provided by the wall of candles. The ceremony music was played by friends of the bride and groom that made it all the more special. At cocktail hour, guests loved seeing the personal touches that were brought in by the bride and groom. Biscuits and Berries wowed guests with their food and bundt cakes from The Bundt Shop were on a wonderful dessert display that was fabulous (not to mention yummy!).

From the red doors and signs at entry, family lace displays on the dining tables, to the colorful flowers in all bold hues of red, yellow, blue, purple and green provided by The Perfect Petal, this wedding was filled with love, family and happiness. Elite DJ kept the dance floor full with fun reception music and the guests were treated to a night that they wouldn’t soon forget! The couple made their getaway in our favorite vintage car from Excursions. We can’t wait to share the profession pictures from Tyler Freear!
