If ever there were a bride and groom who were made for Style Me Pretty - it would be these two. The wedding, captured by Christina Kiffney Photography, is a reflection on their pretty, light home, and if the flowers from Plum Sage Flowers and the dainty almost-French details are any inkling of the kind of life they lead, we would LOVE to live in their pretty, pretty world. Let's all live a little like this Colorado couple for the afternoon, shall we?
From Talia Events ... As I look back at notes I took during my first meeting with Anne, I wrote down the following—"natural to the degree that it’s comfortable, casual but classy with touches of charm and nostalgia" and a note with a star next to it that she really likes things that are pretty.
The “pretty” for their big day was inspired by their home that’s filled with light, pale colors, touches of the rustic and distressed and lots of baskets and picture frames; her travels to France and their mutual travels around the country; and her love of flowers.
Their trips and love of travel showed up understated ways—a suitcase for postcard love notes, tables named for favorite places and luggage tag-inspired escort cards. France was brought in through the ticking runners and the dessert bar filled with French and Italian sweets and a variety of patisserie and boulangerie signs.
She framed old photos of family members as homage to her love of her family and of pictures and a nostalgic touch and wrapped glass votives in lace and buttons to accompany clusters of bottles filled with brightly colored flowers on the reception tables.
As a personal thank you to their family and friends, each guest received a handmade cloth bag of treats tied with lace and a little thank you tag.
In the end, it was certainly a wedding graced with love for each other and family and friends, nostalgia, and plenty of pretty!
