Coral is such a fun refreshing color and when it gets paired with green at a June mountain wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, well the  combination is just striking!  Katie and Haydn had lots of other lovely details as well.  The hand-rolled ceremony programs, the paper fans with handles wrapped in calico fabric, sprigs of baby’s breath in bridesmaid updos, the metallic caligraphy on seating assignment cards…we especially loved the green taffeta linens under coral napkins and gorgeous arrangements from Swank Stems.  One of our favorite djs, Yan of Elite DJ & Entertainment, kept a lively dance floor and Aventura did a fantastic job capturing the creative details and the sweet moments of this delightful weekend.

Jessica and Phil are a fun-loving stylish couple who live in Denver and love the mountains.  A secluded mountain in the National Forest of Breckenridge became the site of their summer wedding, beautifully photographed by Brinton Studios.  Jess and Phil added their own touches of playful whimsy and chic style to Ten Mile Station, with its mountain lodge architecture, vintage mining town décor, and dramatic views of snow-touched peaks.

The airy arch of curly willow adorned in yellow orchids (fabulous work of Statice Floral) was flanked by bridesmaids in chic white and charcoal striped dresses decked in pearls and groomsmen in yellow ties with succulent boutonnieres accented in yellow billy balls.  Inside his pocket, Jessica’s father carried a sweet note from his daughter, thoughtfully embroidered on a handkerchief for him.  Jessica was stunning in her mermaid gown from Alvina Valenta, purchased at Denver’s couture salon, Anna Be.

Weathered wooden photo frame favors doubled as escort cards during cocktail hour, directing guests to their tables styled with yellow chevron runners, mercury glass candle stands, and whimsical centerpieces that reached toward a towering ceiling against breathtaking mountain views.  Strings of heart confetti cascaded from one of the photo displays while a wooden crate offered dancing shoes for the party.  A metallic “Mr & Mrs Ruiz” glinted atop the ribbon-frosted cake finished in a light yellow ombre fade.  The evening finished with flare as Jessica and Phil made their exit under an arch of sparklers amid the cheers of happy guests.

The string quartet paused their music as a baby blue Porshe bumped snappily along the woodchip path and Theron hopped out to open the door for his sister Electra, stunning in a Justin Alexander gown and colorful cascade bouquet.  On the arm of her mother, Electra walked down a rose strewn aisle to marry Justin (in his custom 3 piece suit from Moda Man) next to a gurgling meadow creek with stunning mountain views.  The Porshe, a recently restored model Electra & Theron’s late father had owned, sat as a sweet tribute in the background.

After playful parasol portraits with Alive Studios in unexpected fields of purple lupine that complimented the bridesmaid dresses, Electra and Justin joined their cocktail hour where guests enjoyed buckets of beer and yard games including a custom cornhole set Electra had painted in the fashion of the Colorado flag with E & J in script on the bottom.  Mad libs cards on a vintage sidearm desk provided an entertaining guestbook experience.

The tented reception was adorned in romantic twinkle lights, touches of purple, mountain themed table names set in aspen logs, and colorful bursts of wildflower centerpieces from SA Floral Design.  Custom coasters, personalized organza bags of candy, and matchbook momentos thoughtfully decorated each place setting.  A whimsical cake adorned in playful flowers was the highlight of a dessert table decked out in whoopee pies and assorted sweets, all beautifully created by Sugar.  As the sun set, massive trees outside were uplit in a soft purple wash and a fire pit flickered with LED candles and a wreath of lights wrapped in tulle.

The festive crackle and glow of sparklers mingled with excited cheers of family and friends as Electra and Justin made their way on the woodchip path to their getaway limo.

Electra & Justin, thank you for letting us be part of your exquisite, romantic, fun day.  It was truly a pleasure to bring your thoughtful details to life for a celebration your guests absolutely loved and were reluctant to leave!  Thank you and we wish you the very best!
