HAIR FLOWERS // YES PLEASE!!

As a bride...you are going to feel and look absolutely stunning, you will be surrounded by all those that love you, while committing to share your life with the one you love! It is the little details are what truly encompass a bride's style, and this is where Lace and Lilies comes in and it's where we thrive - hair flowers! We just can't get enough...

We saw a huge rise in the popularity of flower combs in 2017 and are continuing to see the trend for 2018, and we are just elated! We have the wonderful opportunity to really get to know our brides and we continuously talk about their color palette, texture, design and style for their wedding, and hair flowers are a final detail that we love to create to reflect their style.

Flower combs, lush with berries and various sage toned foliages are ideal for any Rocky Mountain backdrop. Flower combs are the perfect way to bring the colors and textures of Colorado into your florals!

Flower combs can compliment and be worn with a brides veil OR they can be saved and placed into the brides hair for the reception after the veil comes off! Either way, we think it is such an elegant and timeless look - in love with this beauty!

Hair combs are delicate, can easily be tucked into any hair style, whether you prefer a loose bun or your hair draped down your shoulders, they are a lovely accent to cohesively tie into your groom's boutonniere and bridal bouquet. 

Weddings rich with vibrant flowers are perfectly accented with flower crowns! Flower crowns are so versatile and can be created in so many different and unique styles.  Did we say the options are endless?!

From vibrant to jewel tones, to muted flowers with greenery,  hair flowers are the perfect accent! 

 

Perfect for bridesmaids or flower girls, we think everyone needs a crown for your special day! 

Hair flowers are ever-changing and we love designing all types of hair flowers for each of our unique Brides for the most perfect detail for their wedding day!

We spend so much time learning about our brides' styles, truly getting to know our couples, and nailing down color palettes and inspiration for wedding flowers, that tying all aspects of it together with hair flowers is so rewarding and it's just one element that makes us love our jobs so much!

YAS to all the hair flowers!! 

We are so grateful to work with such amazing photographers, click on your favorite photos to link to their websites to see more!

Frances + Nick // Beano's Cabin // Beaver Creek

We love color.

We love travel.

We love Frances and Nick!!

That pretty much sums up our entire journey with these two love birds. You really never know the direction things will go when a client walks through your door, but 10 minutes into the first creative consultation you can just tell when it's going to be pure magic. That is exactly how we felt when talking over the floral and decor details with Frances, style is something that comes easy and natural to her and her color story and wedding day aesthetic matched Lace and Lilies flawlessly!

Let's start with the saturated color palette that we created together. Frances talked about using bold and bright tones and her love for reds paired with corals. This palette was so unique and fun to work with and really added the perfect punch to the very lush green landscape of Beaver Creek, Colorado. If this doesn't scream summer lovin' - we don't know what would!

The wedding was just absolutely perfect, if you have not visited Beano's Cabin in Beaver Creek, it is worth the journey! A big thanks to Courtney Cyr Design for the day of detailing and to One Oak Photography for capturing the day's beauty! We hope you enjoy this wedding as much as we did...now to print these photos for the new studio walls, we just can't live without them!

One of our favorite design details for the day was their gorgeous ceremony circle that we created from bold and saturated flower pops mixed with pompous grass. We are so lucky to live in Colorado and have these majestic backdrops to have weddings in front of...the one thing we like to keep in mind is not covering up the natural beauty of Colorado. This flower circle was the perfect way to add color to the very green mountains and have a beautiful statement piece without blocking the view the guests were intended to see! It really turned out just perfect!

We absolutely fell in love with the super stylish wedding party and their red mix and match dresses! This is what you get when you are not afraid of color - these ladies are just to die for!

This wedding, this venue, this couple and this collaborative team...it was an absolute dream and pleasure to help create a day so beautiful. We feel so grateful we were able to be a part of such a creative journey and we hope this inspires other couples to be bold, unique and creative!

Kelly + Chris // Vail, Colorado // August 2016

To say we adore our clients is an understatement. We are so submerged in their love stories, personalities and can not get enough. We feel so lucky to share in such an intimate time in their lives and do not wish to be anywhere else but in our shop learning all about their love. Most often, we work with clients that we are meeting for the first time - every now and then, we come across a couple that we already know and love. That is Kelly and Chris! Kelly and Chris are extended family and when we caught wind that they were getting married and wanted to work with Lace and Lilies we were beyond elated. 

Now, because Chris's last name is Hill - and Kelly's grandma once said to her granddaughter "you went to the mountains to find your Hill" - this of course became the overall theme of the wedding. It does not get more perfect than that and Lace and Lilies was on board with it all!

Once Chris and Kelly had their big details chosen for their day, it was time to talk flowers and decor! These two were the dream clients, they had an overall vision of what they wanted their day to look like, bold and colorful, romantic, elegant and really give their guests a feeling of being in the mountains in the summer - then left the rest up to us! The result...it was pure beauty!

Each and every detail was perfectly decided and represented the two of them and their families perfectly. We love how well Chris and Kelly were able to let their love story shine through their wedding day, from the personalized programs with their wedding parties avitars to Chris's father "Big Daddy" marrying them! 

We could go on and on about these love birds and this day - but we will let the photos speak for themselves! We feel so lucky to have been a part of their celebration and story, thanks you two!

Sarah + Jon / September 5th, 2015 / Grand Lake, CO

 

These two lovebirds met years ago in a bar, but they didn't meet in the typical way. You see, Sarah was in the neighborhood visiting a friend, and the two of them decided to head out to a bar. They found themselves at a place where Jon was the chef. They exchanged glances, maybe chatted for a bit, but nothing truly developed at that time. After that, they ended up seeing each other everywhere - around the neighborhood and at parties back in Chicago, Illinois. They had crushes on each other for quite a long time, and back in 2012, the two of them made everything official! They went on their first date, and as they say, the rest is history.

Thanks to Levi & Val, here's a glimpse into their gorgeous, mountain wedding in Grand Lake, Colorado. 

Grand Lake, Colorado is absolutely stunning! It's the largest and deepest natural lake, and it is a fantastic place to spend your time, especially when you're celebrating a wedding as lovely as theirs. 

The drive through the Rocky Mountain National Park over Trail Ridge Road is always one of our favorites. On this particular day, we saw moose, elk, and deer. The views are just spectacular!

These next few photos are wonderful - it's their first look! 

Wedding time!

Party time!

Before the two of them joined the party, they snuck off together for some one-on-one time after exchanging their vows. The photos capturing their alone time together as husband and wife are just gorgeous!

Congratulations Sarah and Jon! Thank you so much for inviting us to celebrate with the two of you! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together!

Lindsey + Dan : August 29th, 2015 : Steamboat Springs, Colorado

Wedding season is here and color palettes are coming to life! Blush is a such a gorgeous, classic color that we can always count on in our color palettes. One wedding that inspires us is Lindsey and Dan's beautiful ivory, blush, gray, and green wedding! Every detail was perfectly planned, thanks to Jolly Events. We couldn't resist posting about this wedding - the photos are incredible! Kerinsa truly captured their soft, romantic wedding flowers. 

Check out these bouquets! They are full of lush dahlias, garden roses, and textured eucalyptus, silver brunia berries and calcynia. We just cannot get enough of these gorgeous photos.

How happy and sweet is their son?! Just the most handsome best man!

We just LOVE cafe au lait dahlias, especially when they are grown locally here in Fort Collins!

The Sheraton Hotel in Steamboat Springs was the perfect place for their friends and family to gather, not to mention a stunning backdrop for these mountain blooms!

There was an even mix of centerpieces. One half of them focused on romantic, soft, lush blooms. The other half was rich in texture and fun foliage. This mix created such a beautiful balance of colors in the room!

CAKE! CAKE! CAKE! CAKE! CAKE! 

Congratulations, you two! Thank you for celebrating with us!
