Colorado Forest Wedding

~ As Seen on Style Me Pretty ~

I am a mountain girl. Don't get me wrong- I love warm sun and ocean views. But there's something about the Colorado mountains that soothes me. It's wild. It's untamed. It's home. 

That is why this particular shoot was so special to do. We schlept our gear and our guys to our family cabin the Grand Mesa National Forest for these pretty shots. We foraged foliage and berries and huddled together as the rain passed. Located a few hours from Vail, this Western Slope territory is part of "The New West" - a hidden secret to Colorado.

Kaylan of K Robinson Photography captured the best of this trip on film processed by Mammum Film Lab. It really is amazing how much film picks up details digitals seem to forget. Pair it with beautiful hand-made paperies from Sara Lousie Paper Co. and you have the perfect compliment to this foraged forest wedding.

The Natural Bouquet / Grand Junction Flowers / Three Leaf Floral

I love to forage. It's something I've always done. So when Summer wanted to use natural elements in her bouquet last October, I was over the moon. These eagle feathers are so special, especially paired with locally grown flowers from Honey Blossom Farm. I'm so lucky to be able to take a walk in the woods and borrow nature's beauty. Happy March, here's to spring!

Palisade Wedding Florist / Cassie and Darin in Colorado Wine Country

One of the things I love most about living in western Colorado is  the summer sunsets. It's like a double feature when the sun sets in the West and casts it's pink glow on the bookcliffs to the North. Cassie and Darin held their indian summer soiree in Palisade Colorado last summer captured by the fabulous Cat Mayer of Cat Mayer Studio.  Cassie chose colors as bright as her personality. We used garden roses, veronica, tulips, ferns, ranunculus, dahlias and orchids to create her  wine country wedding. Enjoy! Vendor Spotlight:
