Laura + Paul // September 15th, 2018 // Piney River Ranch, Vail CO

You know the feeling you have when you meet someone and you feel like you’ve met them before? The conversation flows effortlessly, laughs are endless, and the collaboration between style and art is an absolute breeze. That was Laura for us! As soon as we met her and fell in love with her impeccable style (I mean seriously, just wait to see all the pics) we knew in a past life we must have been flower-power-babes together! Between her unique and amazing color palette, textured florals, beautiful, awe-inspiring mountain backdrop, and the genuine love between the newlyweds — we just couldn’t wait to share!!

Thank you to the following impeccable vendors, for making Laura and Paul’s day an unforgettable one!

To Piney River Ranch for the serene backdrop, Callie Hobbs for capturing the incredible day with her flawless, artistic style, Victoria from Banks and Leaf for the attention to detail that the day went off seamlessly, and thank you to Little White Dress Bridal for providing the stunning gown by Anne Barge!

Cora + Kendal // September 8th, 2018 // Lyons Farmette

Cora and Kendal, a couple truly after our own hearts. Cora, a fellow florist and landscape architect, and Kendal a brew master (hello, hops). Brews and blooms — literally our two favorites!! During Cora’s consultation she talked to us about her colors, venue, bridal party attire, and let us run with her ideas - and we absolutely LOVED the result! Having such trust and a laid back attitude when you’re in the industry and know all there is to know about flowers, is no easy feat. Cora, we can’t thank you enough for letting us run wild with your moody-toned flowers and flowing pampas grass - your day turned out to be the wedding of Lace + Lilies dreams!

Thank you to Lyons Farmette for the perfect setting. Root and Gather for keeping all the details perfect and Jill Houser for capturing not only the day, but Cora and Kendal’s authentic love so perfectly!

Brittany + Matt // 9.9.18 // Winter Park, Colorado

We love traveling for weddings all over our beautiful state of Colorado, but there is just something about a mountain wedding that fuels our adventure-loving - inspired by nature - creative souls. Incorporating our floral designs into the natural, rich hues of the landscape is a dream come true for our team! Not only do we get to celebrate and compliment the environment around us with organic blooms, our team also gets to take in the moment, daydreaming on mountain tops. No wonder Colorado attracts so many people from all over the world to say 'I do'. 

Meet Brittany + Matt, this dreamy couple met while attending college at Northern Arizona University through their mutual group of friends. Brittany loves Matt for his sense of humor and how he never lets her forget how much he cares about her. Matt loves Brittany's compassionate heart, wanderlust, and her drive and diligence. After they both moved to San Diego after they graduated college the rest was history! They chose Sunspot Mountain Lodge in Winter Park, Colorado to have their beautiful wedding, and we're so grateful we were able to be a part of it all! Thanks to Melissa Young Photography for her amazing work!

earthy color palette

Designed with various shades of green foliage, soft and neutral blooms with hints of dark blue

We love to design boutonnieres to compliment not only the overall wedding but the esthetic around us - these fern, eucalyptus + olive branch boutonnieres were perfectly in unison with the bouquets!

Not sure how to even begin pinning a boutonniere? Don't you worry - we provide a fun instructional guide on how to pin a boutonnieres, and it's a fun, candid moment for the wedding photographer to capture the Groom pinning on the boutonniere for his Best Man! 

Not many can say they rode a gondola on their wedding day -- here in Colorado, it's the norm! 

The beautiful flowers girls' threw silver dollar eucalyptus leaves instead of the traditional rose petal - we just can't get enough!! 

The beautiful, off the shoulder sage green Bridesmaids gowns are from Show Me Your MuMu

We are just swoooning over this gown from Louvienne and the elegant and chic cape from Watters. Both the gown and cape are from Lovely Bride.

Garden roses, calcynia, anemone, stock, astrantia, and a touch of draping feather fern -- a recipe that makes our souls so happy! Our beautiful Bride accented her bouquet wrap with a heirloom handkerchief - this is the perfect way to subtly incorporate a very sentimental item.

The sage toned bridesmaid gowns were meant to be accented with these foliage bouquets - the hints of white flowers added the perfect touch to tie together the bridal bouquet with her tribe!

The asymmetrically designed foliage swag perfectly complimented the mountain landscape and incorporated various types of eucalyptus, fern and olive branch.

The sunlight peeking through the foliage is just too perfect for Brittany and Matt's first kiss as newlyweds!

Welcome signs are a must have! It can be such a small and simple thought to accent a sign with flowers and foliage that compliment your day - yet makes such an impact when guest arrive to the reception!

We accented the naked cake by Jilly's with lovely roses and bits of foliage! Let's eat!

These two!!

These handsome men wore navy suits from Indochino, and they wore them well!

We are so grateful for these beautiful mountain views! Colorado, you never cease to amaze us!! 

The perfect way to exit!

 

Thank you again to the incredible vendors that made this wedding flawless!

Over here at Lace and Lilies, we believe our soulmates are not only the ones we choose to marry, but our soulmates are also our life-long friends! The friends we call when we land the dream job, the text message de-coders, the ultimate support system (along with wine and cheese), the ones we can sit and laugh with until your belly aches, the friends we send a bottle of champagne with the note, "Will you be my bridesmaid? (You just can't look hotter than me)." They are our soul mates and we would be lost with out them!

Check out some of our favorite and most cherished bridesmaid moments and florals!!

Ceremony Flowers, Decor + More

Let's be real. We love flowers and we want to see them everywhere at your wedding! One of our favorite places to get creative and try new things is the ceremony site. We are so fortunate to work with the most amazing Colorado Venues (check out the list at the bottom) and we feel so lucky to customize these spaces to fit our clients style! From standing in front of an 8ft flower circle, to having hanging flowers above you or having something simple and creative like hanging hoops, we love it all!

Here is a collection of our beautiful ceremony flowers over time and it just keeps getting better as we blossom more and more each year! 

Like the pictures you see? Click on each photo to be directed to the photographer's website!! 

Enjoy!

I mean, just check out this gorgeous ceremony space at Milston Well Farm

Yaaas to circle arches!!  They so perfectly frame the two loved ones as they say, 'I do.' 

Loving this simple pop of blooms beneath the cross, this ranch wedding was a dream!! 

Birch arches are perfect for Colorado weddings, you can't get more mountain than this! 

Della Terra's new pergola is such an incredible structure -- we loved accenting it with these gorgeous, asymmetrically placed blooms! We are continuing to see quite a bit of the asymmetric trend with flower placement, and we can't get enough of it!! 

This low, half circle of pampas grass paired with vibrant, colorful flowers was such a showstopper! This look is perfect for ceremony sites with beautiful mountain backdrops as they do not obstruct the gorgeous views, yet add a pop of decor and color to a ceremony site! 

Organically growing and vining tree blooms? Yes Puh-leease.

We are straight swoooning over the A-frame arch trend! 

Flowers and foliage vining up brick and moss walls, heck to the YES! 

Obsessed with this corner of foliage for that perfect accent of green at the Beautiful Sunspot Mountain Lodge in Breckenridge. ! 

These fun arch flowers and bouquets were so cohesive to our Bride's punchy, vibrant color palette! 

The Lodge at Breckenridge provided the beautiful views for this incredible ceremony site!! 

Wine barrels are the perfect place to add some beautiful blooms and incorporate the color palette into the ceremony site! 

Loving this asymmetric garland at the beautiful Piney River Ranch
