Melissa and Jason were married in early October at TenMile Station in Breckenridge, Colorado. Their wedding was on top of a mountain, surrounded by peaks views. They included their adorable son throughout the day, including
They were joined by 70 of their closest friends and family for an amazing party in the mountains!
Jake and Makinzie were married at the Surf Chateau in gorgeous Buena Vista, CO. They wanted a Restoration Hardware theme, natural and organic feeling florals and a fun, party feel for their 65 guests.
I had the total pleasure of working with the couple for nearly a year prior to their wedding. They live in Minnesota but wanted a destination wedding weekend for their closest friends and family. They had already discovered the Surf Chateau when we began working together and allowed the venue to dictate their wedding style (so smart!)
Being a destination couple, we worked together mainly via phone and email (they were so awesome about correspondence), taking one trip together to Buena Vista in March 2015.
This couple was so surrounded by love, their friends and family were amazing! When the groom's father is sporting a Man Bun, you know the party is going to be epic!
Cheers to Jake and Makinzie!

This European Opulence-inspired styled shoot, designed by The Styled Soiree and captured by Sara Lynn Photographic and Dacosta Films, was influenced by the bucolic castle setting of Cherokee Ranch and Castle.
Rich textures and luxurious fabrics added to the venue’s existing opulence while natural elements of marble and wood added a modern, organic twist. Guided by the bridal suite, a dusty French blue was the main color inspiration for the shoot, married with pops of pale peach and blackberry.
An intimate ceremony overlooked the valley below from a terrace featuring rock walls and expansive archways. The bride and groom were framed by a calligraphy installation with the phrase “Love doesn’t mean gazing at each other, but looking, together, in the same direction” hand lettered in both French and English.
The bridal bouquet was a contemporary take on a cascading bouquet with trailing vines of clematis and honeysuckle. The slightly wild setting of the venue was echoed in the natural, rambling silhouettes of the ceremony arbor and centerpieces.
We were hoping to showcase the beauty of an intimate, luxurious wedding honoring a truly unique Colorado venue: the opulence of a European Castle-wedding with a modern, organic twist.
Kelli and Dave were married at Evergreen Lake House in August, 2015. Kelli grew up in Colorado but she and Dave live in New York, NY. Dave designed the invitations and paper goods. They had a pie bar for dessert (yum) and had the most amazing dance party to end the evening! All beautifully captured by Luke and Mallory Photography.
Liz and Casey were married in early October in Grand Lake, Colorado. They rented a house on the lake to share with their families and invited 60 guests to celebrate under a tent on the property. We had an early cold snap with several inches of snow, but Liz and Casey rolled with the punches and moved the ceremony inside.
The bride wore duck boots (how cool!) and the groom hand carved a bench to be signed as the guest book!
