Cloud 9 Ranch Wedding: Leslie + Luke at Crooked Willow Farms

Leslie and Luke were getting married on 8-23 at Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado. The fun part? They hired us to help them hire vendors and plan their wedding on 6-5! We love a challenge, swift wedding planning (we have planned an entire wedding in 4 weeks on private land – tent, power, all the vendors, etc.) and the color palette and style was nothing short of fabulous!

Blending soft neutral colors, vintage chic table décor and a touch of Colorado (Luke is a gunsmith and big hunter), the end result was a wedding to delight! Every detail was thought of from hanging LOVE above the barn doors, hay bales covered in faux fur for the cocktail to antler sheds that Luke found which we incorporated into the florals and hung from the ceiling as chandeliers. It was truly a magical night!

Cloud 9 Produces The Brown Palace’s 1st Annual Veil & Vow Luxury Bridal Showcase

We were ecstatic when our good friend Michelle Gillette asked us to help the Brown Palace produce their first luxury wedding showcase! The Brown wanted to boast it’s amazing spaces, culinary skills and floral design to couples planning their weddings and boy did they deliver! Even more, 35 amazing Denver wedding vendors who are top in their field put on their best displays. And if that wasn’t enough, The Bridal Collection was our featured Denver Wedding Dress Boutique and brought in amazing wedding dresses by Justin Alexander, Pronovias, Maggie Sottero and Lazaro.

Of course an event wouldn’t be complete if it didn’t benefit a wonderful cause. All the proceeds that were from the entrance fees and 15% of all the dress sales went to the non-profit The Wedding Pink that donates an entire wedding to a couple that has recently been touched by breast cancer. The Brown Palace will be hosting the 2015 wedding which we are also planning!

To all the amazing event sponsors: LMD Productions, Studio JK Photography, The Wedding Pink, The Bridal Collection, Dance Trax Productions, Chair Covers & Linens, Moet Chandon, CORT Furnishings, J&S Audio Visual and Butler Rents – THANK YOU!

When arriving, guests were treated with champagne from Moet Chandon. As guests entered the ballroom, we wanted to wow them with two show-stopping fantasy table designs – one called Hollywood and the other Crystal Cascade.

For Hollywood, we envisioned an opulent and formal table design in white, cream, gold and red. A beautiful red dogwood arch spanned the length of the table and underneath it, a dense floral carpet that sat on a gorgeous ivory sequined linen. Specialty sequined place mats provided a beautiful foundation for the china. To top if off, luminous light bathed the table in a leaf/branch motif.Our Crystal Cascade was built around a waterfall crystal column and teal light up chairs by CORT Furnishings. We took 3 serpentine tables to add movement and paired that with a sumptuous navy wave linen from Chair Covers and LinensLMD Production’s crystals pooled on a fabulous pillow of blue and purple florals. On either end of the table, two fabulous tall centerpieces by Brown Palace Flower Shop skyrocketed off the tables to accentuate the drama. The place settings are from Butler Rents and the round eggplant menus are from our in-house stationery company. And a HUGE thank you to Joe with Studio JK Photography for all the amazing photos!brown palace_cloud 9_light up chairs_purple and blue_wedding decor (532x800) cloud 9_crystal column_LMD Productions_brown palace_blue hydrangea (532x800) cloud 9_round menu_blue and purple_wedding_table setting_jk studios (532x800) brown palace_cloud 9_blue and purple_wedding_tall centerpieces_jk studios (532x800)We designed the Onyx Room in a gorgeous Tiffany blue and silver.

Cloud 9 Museum Wedding: Anna and Matt at the Clyfford Still Musuem

We were so excited to help Anna and Matt plan their wedding that was held at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. It is such a unique space with bold bright paintings that provides a breathtaking backdrop for amazing pictures. As the first impression, a two color letterpress invitation was sent out with a detailed pattern in orange.

Their colors were gray, white and orange and their design aestetic was contemporary which matched the museum’s surroundings perfectly. When guests arrived, they were escorted up to the second floor where the amazing artwork hangs. A string trio greeted guests with beautiful music and the painting that was chosen to be the backdrop was bold blue piece. After the ceremony, guests found their names on mini-personalized canvases that directed them to their table. The wonderful centerpieces were at art piece all in their own boasting bright colors and a touch of metal. When dancing took over the evening, Anna and Matt rarely left the floor making this an amazing and fun evening with their guests.
