From Sara Hasstedt
…This 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 âlipstick colored floral paletteâ 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.

When we spot a line-up of TOMS at a wedding, all bets are on that affair being A) adorable and spirited and B) a good mix of casual cool where comfort is hand in hand with pretty details. From one glance at this Colorado wedding, it looks like our betting theory is a total winner. Cassidy Brooke Photography captured the aforementioned line-up as well as way too many adorable images to possibly post. Hence why heading to the gallery for more should be on your afternoon to-do list. Do so right here.
From Cassidy Brooke Photography… Kari and Chris’ wedding was the perfect blend of elegant and fun, heartfelt and giddy, peace and excitement. Kari and her girls started the day by getting ready to worship music, keeping their focus THE focus. It set a peaceful, joy-filled tone for the rest of the day. With not a cloud in the sky, Chris and Kari had a beautiful, sentimental first look under the big green trees of a nearby park. The day just flowed — it was such a wonderful wedding as whole. Kari was THE sweetest bride. Anything will make her laugh, her smile is contagious, and you can just tell that Chris adores her as he watched her quietly throughout the day, admiring his beautiful bride. There was a certain class amongst the bridal party that I loved, but at the same time they weren’t afraid to be silly and laugh in their fun TOMS! The wedding day demonstrated the true definition of the saying “It’s about the marriage, not the wedding.” As beautiful and perfect as the day was, Kari and Chris were able to remember to keep the main thing their focus: their union. :)

From Lindsay B Photography… Amy and Scott had a playful, vintage-inspired wedding at Pastures of Plenty, a farm-to-table venue with a great backyard feel. The main source of inspiration was their yellow vintage tandem cruiser bike that they are known to be spotted riding around town on, especially in Denver’s Wash Park. Amy’s dress was remade from her mother-in-laws wedding gown with cute little details that made it her very own. The wedding party rocked a monochromatic gray color scheme including the guys casual hemp shoes, which made the accents of yellow really pop. Their pup, Keidis, also played a major part in their big day and sported the colors too. Their were so many little personal details in their decor, including a pillow for the guests made out of the shirt Scott used to propose to Amy, bicycle and dog imagery, old wedding photographs of their families, some of their favorite yard games with personalized decorations on them, and ending the night with a balloon artist from the night they first met making crazy balloon hats for their guest. They also really played on the laid-back, Colorado farm vibe of their venue with bouquets of wildflowers with wood-burned monogrammed charms, “seeding” assignments collected on a clothes line for their guest to take home and plant and a good, old-fashioned bonfire. The bluegrass band Hunker Down played for everyone to dance the night away.
