Chelsea and Jimmy

Chelsea and Jimmy had a 20's glam wedding on July 11, 2014 at Mile High Station in Denver, Colorado. This evening wedding featured a black, white and gold color palette, and the couple used old books and magazines from the era to complete their 20's/Great Gatsby inspired event. These amazing photos were taken by Libby Neder Photography

Chelsea's bouquet was overflowing with white phalaeonopsis orchids, black calla lilies, white calla lilies, white anemones, and white dendrobium orchids. She then lent us some of her grandmother's broaches to incorporate into the bouquet, and the result was breathtaking:

For her bridesmaids, Chelsea chose to do a deconstructed version of her bridal bouquet--each bridesmaid held one type of flower that was in the bridal bouquet, for an eclectic and modern twist:

One bridesmaid held all white calla lilies

One bridesmaid held all black calla lilies:

Another bridesmaid held white anemones:

The matron of honor held phaleaonopsis orchids:

Here they are all together:

Melinda and Christy

Melinda and Christy were married in the incredibly gorgeous Beaver Creek, on August 17th, 2013.

They opted for a *gorgeous* view with the mountain backdrop, and thus the flowers were rustic, but fit within their color scheme of yellow, white and grey.  We kept their bouquets a bit more formal, adding white phaleonopsis orchids to the yellow ranunculus, billy balls, succulents, David Austin garden roses, and greens. Both bouquets held similar flowers, but were styled and designed to match their individual personalities.

Melinda and Christy had the additional color of a vibrant bright (almost lime) green, so we opted to to an alternating color scheme for their bridesmaids. Each one carried a bouquet of either vibrant green or gold yellow, and we placed them alternately, such that their color scheme would be represented.

Flowers included super green roses, kermit mums, yellow ranunculus, green hydrangea, yellow dahlias, green hypericum, billy balls, and bells of Ireland--in some combination

We did both corsages and bouts with yellow billy balls and filler and greens, with a little flourish from our very own Katy"

Melinda and Christy opted to do a "first look," in which they decided to see each other in a private moment before the ceremony begun. It was heartwarming and absolutely lovely:

After their first look, they (and their bridal party and ALL of their guests!) took ski lifts up to the deck at the Beaver Creek Resort. There is no other way up to this location other than lift. And it was magical :)

Both ladies walked down the aisle with both of their parents--Melinda walked first and Christy walked second:

The ceremony was nothing less than perfect--and that view!!

Inside the Park Hyatt Resort, at the Mountainside Bar and Grill and Private Dining Room and Patio, Christy and Melinda had a rustic Colorado mountain reception.  On the long tables, we put a burlap table runner and a line of vintage glass budvases filled with green, yellow and white wildflowers

Melinda and Christy decided to buy vintage bud vases from a local guy who dug them out of the Platte Valley River--and they were the perfect touch for this event

See how river washed and amazing this next bottle is?

 

For their intimate reception, we had both long and round tables, and for the round tables we did short squatty cylinder vases filled with the same flowers used throughout the rest of the wedding

Outside, they had a cocktail reception with cabaret tables, a full bar (with a signature cocktail that was so cute!) and a few diner style booths so that everyone had space to hang out and mingle. On the cabaret tables, we reused the aisle arrangements as centerpieces

 

In the middle of the reception site was a giant fireplace, where we strategically placed more of their found bottles filled with wildflowers

Melinda and Christy opted to do a traditional head table, with both a few of the squat cylinder vasesd centerpieces, plus the brides' bouquets and their bridesmaids' bouquets as decoration

Such a lovely couple, we wish them all the best!!

Molly and Jordan

This adorable couple was married at the Red Rocks Country Club on June 8, 2013. Taking advantage of the very limited season for peonies, we used pale pink, dark pink and white peonies with white anemones throughout the wedding. Pictures taken by the very talented Julie Harris

The gorgeous lace dress inspired us to use white lace as a wrap for her bouquet.

In addition to the peonies and white anemones in Molly's bouquet, she asked us to include small dragonflies tucked into the flowers--such a cute and personal touch!

For the bridesmaids, we used pale pink lisianthus, hot pink ranunculus, ivory roses, waxflower and background greens.

For the centerpieces, Molly's dad painted empty Patron bottles (Jordan's favorite) with a translucent silver paint, and we filled them with peonies and white anemones.

 

Molly and Jordan's cake was decorated with italian ruscus, ivory roses, white ranunculus, and an adorable cake topper that they picked out :)

Outside, on the cocktail tables, we put cube vases filled with pink and white peonies and white ranunculus.

Christina and Napoleon

Christina and Napoleon live in San Francisco, and so decided they needed to enlist the help of a planner for their wedding in Colorado. They contacted Iconic Flowers and Events to do both planning of their wedding and their wedding flowers.  What a delight it was! They had already chosen their venue, the beautiful Villa Parker, and from there we planned a lush, romantic, tuscan garden wedding.  Christina wanted to do a variety of flowers and colors including orange, coral, ivory, and purple, and we included fruit in the centerpieces.  All photos taken by the extremely talented Steve Stanton.

Christina's bouquet was made with a variety of vines and greens, white dahlias with lavendar tips, dark purple ranunculus, two shades of lavendar roses, hot pink ranunculus, blue veronica and parrot tulips.

 

This lovely (and delicious!) cake was made by Kelley Kakes

Napoleon's bout was made of white ranunculus and dusty miller with dark purple ribbon wrap.

The couple decided to do a first look--boy was it adorable!!

 

Bridal party: Christina had four bridesmaids, wearing long flowy lavendar dresses (she had them made in Vietnam!) The flowers we did were coral dahlias, lavendar roses, ivory spray roses, blue veronica and dusty miller.

We rented wine barrells and put large altar arrangements on the top using the same flowers and colors as used throughout the rest of the wedding.  Additionally, we tied a bouquet of roses, dahlias and blue veronica to the inside chair of every other aisle row.

In lieu of paper programs:

The flower girl carried a lavendar pomander ball with lavendar mums, and the ring bearer had a small bout fixed with a magnet attachment instead of a pin

To honor their shared Vietnamese heritage, Christina and Napoleon performed a tea ceremony during the wedding ceremony:

 

Reception: The reception was held at the Villa Parker, both indoor and on the beautiful outdoor patio.  The centerpieces were made with dahlias, roses, parrot tulips, ranunculus and various fruits including grapes, oranges, plums, and peaches.  Christina and Napoleon's dear friend made 10 wooden cubes for some of the centerpieces, and we used silver urn bowls for the remaining centerpieces. They used purple cards stuck into wine corks for table numbers, and accented the table with amber votive candles.

These were the adorable escort card boxes made with wine crates and sheet moss.

Here are some incredible shots of the lovely couple

Lynette chose all Freedom roses (a variety of red rose) for her bouquet, and her bridesmaids carried ivory Vendela roses.

Krista took some really incredible pictures of the couple around town in the beautiful mountain city of Blackhawk.

Here are some of the SUPER cute hats her guests wore to keep in theme with her Derby wedding...SO fun!
