Intimate Dinner Party Inspiration at Ya Ya Farm & Orchard

If the mister and I ever renewed our vows, I would want it to look exactly like this gorgeous dinner party beautifully captured by Sara Hasstedt. Intimate yet gorgeous styled by Jessica Hearing A Vintage Affair Events everything from the beautiful florals from Violet Floral Design to the stunning stationery by Lana’s Shop makes me want to start planning our vow renewal ASAP. See why here.

From Sara HasstedtThis shoot was inspired by the idea of a sweet intimate dinner amongst friends enveloped by trees and candlelight in an orchard. All the details, from the blush-toned Watters corset & skirt combination layered with the ivory Augusta Jones skirt for added dimension and softness, to the varied tones of pink, berry and creams in the florals, and the dainty whimsy of the white polka dotted table linen, hand-selected from a local specialty fabric shop by stylist, Jessica Hearing, were carefully curated to create an overall aesthetic that would speak to a very feminine and fanciful bride.

The menu design combined hand lettering and a subtle watercolor wash. These unique menu boxes were secured with a colorful ribbon and wax seal. Inside the menu box guests will find a delightful treat, french macarons. We love that this menu doubles as a favor. One of our favorite details were the long delicate tapered candles that sprouted out of mini greenery arrangements at the table. We loved how easily this married the romantic ambiance with the outdoor setting.

The florals for this styled shoot were designed to capture the feminine yet wild and free romantic in us all! We loved the “lipstick colored floral palette” of Peonies, Garden Roses, Ranunculus and Clematis mixed with a home-grown aesthetic of fresh berries and foliage. It was the perfect color complement to the ladylike hues of the dress and the awesomely organic outdoor setting. Organized elegance in a old country setting could never be wrong.

We really wanted the paper goods to reflect the wedding palette and our elegant bride.
The invitations were each mounted onto thick watercolor paper with a wash of deep pink to make the copy really pop while keeping the overall look soft and whimsical. Illustrated flowers in the liner really completed the look.

Colorful Boulder Engagement

There are so many beautiful engagements on SMP, but this mountain e-sesh has stolen my heart in a serious way. From the stunning blooms by Violet Floral Design to the killer captures from Connie Dai Photography, I could spend all morning clicking through pics. Hop to the gallery for so much more!

From the Bride… Jimmer and I began dating while we were students at Colorado College. We happened to be taking the same evening class, and also lived in the same apartment building, so we got to know each other on our walks home at the end of the night. Our busy schedules kept us from being able to plan an official date until Valentine’s Day. To lessen the awkwardness of a first date on a holiday designed for love, Jimmer planned a goofy date that included him losing to me at bowling.

Somewhere in the last five years, Jimmer and I have moved to Denver, found jobs teaching, became roommates, bought a TV, got a dog, and then bought our first home. Jimmer and I both have a great love for the outdoors and the Colorado landscape. Jimmer’s proposal was in a beautiful park in Denver and we are currently planning our wedding in the laid-back mountain town of Estes Park. So for our engagement pictures, we couldn’t imagine any thing other than being outside. But, we wanted a different landscape than our high-mountain wedding venue will offer. Connie Dai Photography delivered, finding two parks just outside Boulder that were absolutely stunning. We will definitely return to those gorgeous locations for some hikes and picnics in the future.

Knowing that I will be in the color white in just a few weeks (yay!), I wanted to wear a pop of color for this shoot. I love how the dress stands out against the background. Jimmer was also able to experiment more with his outfit and picked a two-tone look. We were even able to use the cruiser bike, which was a special gift from Jimmer, in a few shots. We did not use a lot of other props, but I adored the bouquet from A Violet Floral Design. We felt we were able to be much more adventurous than the color palate planned for our wedding day, and the vibrant colors of this bouquet were perfect.

From Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design.. When Caitlin decided on a long gorgeous red dress for her engagement session, she had the idea to go more bold with color when it came to her bouquet. Her upcoming soft and dusty wedding palette consists of blush pinks, so it was a fun chance to get edgy with the bright tones and fabulous textures! The bouquet recipe includes a diverse mixture of: Ivory Peonies, Pink Anemones, Burgundy Scabiosa Pods, Pale Blue Muscari, Citrus Grevillea, Red Amaranthus, Olive Branch and one yellow Poppy. Last, I tied the stems with a combination of colored flowing ribbon and… Voila!

Colorado Springs Summer Camp Wedding

This stunner my dears, is what we like to call rustic perfection served up with a side of boho-elegance. Splashed with a hint of whimsy in the blooms from Sunflower Creative, a gorg floral crown and a lace-detailed dress from BHLDN, it’s a countryside dream that has us wanting more. Have a look right here for all the beauty captured by Bellamint Photography.


From Bellamint PhotographyJulia and Heath’s day was absolutely perfect. Julia attended summer camp at La Foret as a child and just knew she had to be married there.

She is an incredibly talented girl who did her own calligraphy on the invitations, place cards, and seating chart tags. She is also the owner/ singer of Party Singers, so it was amazing watching her group Absolute Romance perform. They are head over heels for succulents, so they were everywhere! The florist included mini terra-cotta pots with fresh blackberries, pears, peaches, and artichokes in the centerpieces. The tables were filled with lace trimmed napkins, and mismatched glasses and silverware. She had her ring made by a dear friend, Corinne Simon. And That BHLDN gown!!!
