Colorado Mountain Wedding Inspiration with Carrie Johnson Photography: Part Two

Yesterday we posted the first round of a bride/groom styled shoot we had the opportunity to do with Carrie ofCarrie Johnson Photography a few months ago. Our blog post featured a traditional, beautiful white dress and bright, pink bouquet. Did you see the shot of the bride in the blooming apple orchard? It was perfection. Today, we're taking a turn and showing off a more bohemian, natural bride with a beautiful green bouquet made with silver dollar eucalyptus, succulent and a couple dark pink protea flowers. This shoot was taken closer to the water's edge and the sunset was dotted with a few clouds that day so we got a more moody, neutral look. I LOVE the romantic, all most elopement, feel of this shoot and I know you will too.

Colorado Mountain Wedding Inspiration with Carrie Johnson Photography: Part One

A few months ago we had the opportunity to create a Colorado Mountain inspired wedding shoot with Carrie ofCarrie Johnson Photography. Carrie really captured the space around Vista View Events, including our apple orchard, and blew us away with her final photos. This inspirational shoot was meant to be on the 'traditional' side complete with pink flowers, something blue and of course the quintessential white dress. It was so fun for Katie and I to see what the property is really capable of when it comes to wedding shoots. We're basically beside ourselves with excitement for our first wedding (or styled shoot!) in the actual venue. As we slowly say farewell to summer we thought you'd enjoy this vibrant inspiration from the heart of wedding season (hello June!). We'll be back tomorrow with Part Two of our photoshoot that features a natural, bohemian style complete with this dress from Rent the Runway and succulents (you can never have too many of those!).

The Future Home of Vista View Events

This post is going to be short and sweet today guys. We recently did our first 'styled shoot' at the Future Home of Vista View Events with Robin of Chickadee Photography and it was SO. MUCH. FUN. I use the term 'styled shoot' loosely because it was my first one and I didn't really know what I was doing. All I know is that I couldn't wait to show you the location of our new wedding barn venue so I put this together. Lucky for me, Robin is an incredible talent and these pictures make all of my simple tablescapes absolutely stunning. Thanks Robin, you're my girl!
