Dreamy Al Fresco Boudoir Session

We don’t feature boudoir sessions nearly as often as real weddings, but when we do it’s a serious treat, because they end up being beyond beautiful (like painfully beautiful), like this one from Connie Dai Photography and Shalynne Imaging. It’s ethereal in every sense of the word, from the wildly gorgeous petals by Bare Root Flora to the organic invitations designed by Lana’s Shop to the lovely lingerie from BHLDN. It’s one gallery you’ll have a hard time leaving.

From Connie Dai PhotographyThe concept for this shoot was dreamed up by two photographers, Shalynne Imaging and I. When we started to plan, the words we chose to describe the look we wanted were natural, feminine, soft, and romantic. We chose textures and colors that would compliment the environment but also stand out. From the sweet, romantic lingerie from BHLDN and robes from Girl with a Serious Dream, to the organic feel of the gorgeous bouquet, we carried that theme through every design element.

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.

Organic Elegance in Colorado at Ya Ya Farm and Apple Orchard

I adore farm weddings. They might just rank among my favorite. So when I laid eyes on this gorgeous fête from Save The Date Events at Ya Ya Farm And Apple Orchard, I nearly fell out of my chair. With the perfect amount of elegance yet filled with rustic details, this gallery from Jason And Gina Photography has me smiling from ear to ear this morning. See why here.

From Jason And Gina PhotographyI hope you enjoy Danielle and Ben’s gorgeous farm to table wedding at an apple orchard/farm (how cute is that?!) as much as we do! I think this wedding is such a perfect example of how well you can take a very organic and rustic style setting and give it a touch of elegance while still keeping with the style of your surroundings. We had some dreary weather but I think it adds a smokey romance to the photos! We love all the animals that were hanging out on property for guests to pet and take pictures of…what an adorable touch! 

From Save The Date EventsFrom the very beginning of planning, Danielle and Ben wanted a venue that could frame the iconic Boulder Flatirons without losing the intricate details of their own story. Their hope was to find a place that felt charming but could also allow for an elegant celebration. What they discovered was Ya Ya Farm and Orchard, a century-old heirloom apple farm in Longmont, Colorado.

On the day of the wedding, guests walked by curious barn cats, spotted chickens, a pair of horses, and neat rows of venerable apple trees on their way to the ceremony. Emma, the bride and groom’s dog and VIP attendant, felt right at home.

The ceremony, officiated by both fathers, took place in the comfort of the orchard. And despite the misting spring rainclouds, the backdrop offered gorgeous, if momentary glimpses of the mountains. A vintage flatbed pickup truck sat nestled in the grass, a welcomed part of the landscape.

After the ceremony, guests were directed to cocktail hour under an open tent with the orchard surrounding them. Guests could relax on rustic lounge furniture, play yard games, and listen to live classical guitar. The bride and groom incorporated their favorite wine and cheese pairings for guests to enjoy, in addition to appetizers such as grape-pistachio goat cheese truffles and tomato-watermelon gazpacho with mint.

Dinner and dancing was held in large tent on another part of the farm. The tent featured canopy fabric draping, illuminated chandeliers, warm wooden details, soft candlelight, greenery, and creamy flowers with sprigs of lavender.

Dinner was a genuine farm-to-table experience. The menu included spring vegetable ravioli with garden herbs, local beef skirt steak, and fresh rainbow trout with polenta. A custom cake with flavors such as zucchini-lime sat on an old wooden wagon. Protecting the cake was a tiny model of their dog Emma, handcrafted from sugar.

As the event came to a close, guests we invited to leave the tent and walk to crackling fire pits where trays of s’more ingredients awaited them.
