Elegant and Ethereal Inspiration Shoot at Highlands Ranch Mansion

I’m pretty sure that whatever the lovely Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events touches turns into inspiration gold. Actually I am positive. And when she teams up with the super talented Sara Hasstedt Photography, there is no question I will have a “I’m not worthy” moment with their work. Because sitting in this gallery is a masterpiece in feature form, and you can see butter and citrus inspired goodness here.

From Hey Gorgeous EventsWhen Sara Hasstedt and I first came up with some ideas for our creative collaboration (she is based in Colorado and I in Michigan and we somehow managed to find one another!), we decided to combine our shared feminine and dreamy aesthetic to create a tailored yet flirty editorial project. The idea of ‘Butter and Citrus’ as our design inspiration quickly became our favorite direction to take and with that you see this final product here, the pairing together of buttery soft yellow tones, and bright summery shades of citrus. To add dimension and visual interest I used lots of texture with the various linens and floral varieties while keeping things both understated and traditional in other areas – like silver flatware, classic china, upholstered chairs, and a gown and veil from Little White Dress that ooze with timelessness. The stunning paper and calligraphy from Jenny Sanders and the sweet (literally!) desserts from Yours Truly Cupcake carried through on the subtle aesthetic theme we dreamt up, while our real life couple brought the right amount of love and style to an already gorgeous day full of simplicity and sweetness.

From The Bride…Our wedding day was one of the most fun and exciting days I have ever experienced, filled with cowboy boots, tears, laughter, and love! We connected through our passion for auto racing. It is hard to find someone that shares the same interests as you and makes you a better person while you are together, but I found him!

From David Lynn PhotographyRyan and Emmy have an incredible sense of style, and their wedding showed it! They chose to get married at the Grant-Humphreys Mansion, one of Denver’s most beautiful venues. The sun shone through the trees and it was a perfect Colorado blue-sky day. Emmy paired her vintage-style dress with cowboy boots, and the groomsmen pulled out their stogies to celebrate. Both Ryan and Emmy are incredibly down-to-earth, and their focus was on celebrating with those they love the most. They finished their day at one of Denver’s oldest downtown restaurants, the Denver Chop House. The incredible cake mirrored Emmy’s dress to perfection- it was a day that dreams are made of!

Romantic + Simple Mansion Wedding Inspiration

I’m of the mind that love is the most beautiful accessory that can adorn your big day. Sweet and simple decor, beautiful garb, and a knock out bouquet compliment that ever so powerful show stopper in this Colorado inspiration shoot from Julie Cate and it’s more than enough to make me want to grab my own sweetie, throw on a fab pair of shoes, and celebrate our love in the gorgeous setting sun!

From Julie CateWhen the weather warmed in Colorado the light became warm and soft and it was a lovely time to pull together a simple and romantic shoot. The location was a historic neoclassical mansion in downtown Denver called the Grant-Humphreys. The mansion is popular for weddings and events and the exterior has grand pillars and winding steps.

My amazing bride, Emily, who also works as a flower designer for The Perfect Petal, created a simple bouquet that popped against the soft background. The bouquet consisted of burgundy dahlias, ranunculus, anemone, darcey garden roses, andromeda and bits of wax flower. The dress was a backless dream gown from Katie May. The simplistic silhouette was just perfect and the bare back with tastefully romantic. I had Emily do her own hair and throw it up as she would on a normal day. But we did add a little bit of fancy with a crystal hairpiece from Untamed Petals.

Emily’s Groom, Joe, looked handsome as well in a dark grey suit and matching boutonniere. We spent a early evening walking around in the spring breeze and loving the warm light. A simple romantic wedding like this would have dinner under the pergola. Simple linen table clothes and napkins tied with strands of eucalyptus. A small wine decanter for every guest is a gift that can be used during dinner and then taken home. The perfect setting for a simple romantic evening for close friends and family.
