Some of my all-time-favorite Little Black Book Blog features have been Winter Weddings. And although we have a slew of summer and fall weddings in the box, we thought we’d just remind you how totally awesome a winter wedding can be! From Kara at Pick Me ~ Floral & Event Design a preview of what was and what will always be … a stunning white winter wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch!

Of course, it is entirely too early to think about winter weddings, but I just had to share one of our favorite’s from last season with you. Maggie and Nick’s March wedding at Devils Thumb Ranch was one of the kindest and quite possibly one of the most beautiful events we have ever done. For Maggie and Nick, we selected an all white floral palette using the best of the early spring crop (the anemonies were to die for) mixed and matched with vintage mercury glassware. Each table was kept to a single color and the tablescape was created. For escort cards, we hung bookmark inspired cards from manzanita branches. For ceremony decor, we hand-wired white orchids from candelabras that we placed on either side of the huge barn doors.
As Maggie walked down the aisle to Nick, we opened the barn doors revealing the snow covered Colorado Continental Divide. College sweethearts from Oklahoma, this gorgeous couple chose Tabernash, CO for their big day and we could not have been more thrilled to put it together for them!
from the beautiful bride …
Nick and I met in college and became good friends directing a singing/ dancing/ acting show together. We were just friends for 6 years until Nick moved to Denver after he graduated. (and broke my heart!) I made plans to move to Thailand to teach in an orphanage and work with refugees for a year when he began to pursue me. However, I just wasn’t sure yet and wanted to focus on moving. I made him wait 4 months until he flew all the way around the world to visit me on my birthday! He walked off the plane and I called him my boyfriend and 2 days later we said we loved each other! We dated on Skype and he visited me again on his way to live in an orphanage in Kenya. He stayed there for 5 months and I came for 5 weeks after my year in Thailand. We both got home in August and we got engaged in September! Whew! I love being married to Nick, he is amazing!
