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!

Boutonnières

Boutonnières, regardless of their small size, can make a big statement and add a lot of personality, texture, and color to an event. We just love how they represent our couple's unique, personal wedding and elopement styles. Traditionally composed with some gorgeous blooms and a bit of foliage, we have been seeing all types of boutonnières - rich in foliage, adding texture with berries and air plants, and even including sentimental items, such as a photo from a loved one.  

We always love how they tie everyone together, and how they appear to have just fallen out of the bouquets. Scroll down to see a variety of different boutonnières we have designed with love and how they truly tie in the couple's unique personality!

Pinning on a boutonniere

We love how this groom attached a family photo to his personal, unique, textured boutonnière. 

We just love how boutonnieres appear to have fallen directly out of the bouquets - they compliment everything so beautifully! Check out these lovely couple's and how everything just blends together.

Don't gorget about the little tykes! They make for some of the most adorable photos.

Best of 2016: Bouquets

2016 was insane - in a fun, colorful, filled with happiness kind of way! We were a part of so many love stories, our hearts are about to burst. The travel was amazing, we saw some of the most beautiful city buildings, remote mountain tops, gorgeous lakes - and all filled with family and friends cherishing our couples and their new journeys! 

What was the best part you ask?! THE BOUQUETS, obviously! Here are some of our favorites in 2016 - enjoy!

Lauren & Andrew l August 22nd, 2015 l Loveland, Colorado

We could say a thousand beautiful things about Lauren and Andrew, but the first thing that comes to mind + lingers, is their love for one another.  Call us old fashioned, but they had the kind of love you read about in your favorite old novel by the fireplace.  Just wait until you scroll down and see how Sarah Lee Welch Photography captured their internal attraction for one another.

These two love birds found us online - I mean, look at the world around us...we find everything we want online!  And although they lived in Texas and our company is here in Fort Collins, Colorado - we were able to get to know one another, share ideas + inspirations, and plan the wedding of their dreams from afar!

There is something so magical about this day - we just adored their family residence that it took place on.  And let us tell you - no detail was missed.  Every single thing was in perfect harmony.  Enjoy!

Thanks to Belle Shea Salon, her romantic updo including florals - fit the endless romance of the day!

Having the support of your closest gals is the best, especially when they look this stunning beside you!

We love how every single small detail adds to the day and the location.  Each table had a sweet little bud vase and the wrist corsages did not disappoint!  We always love to make those you love feel special with a touch of flowers.

We balanced the romantic blooms with garlands everywhere!  Down the tables...and even on the guest tent to dress it up a little!

We wish these two, all the love in the world...even though we know they already found it!  xo

Grady & Katie l April 11th, 2015 l Donovan Pavillon l Vail, CO

Words can not even begin to explain Grady and Katie and their beautiful April day in Vail.  When we first met Katie, she came to Lace and Lilies with the largest-most-beautiful entourage.  So many pretty sisters and mamas that we had girls sitting on the floor of our tiny 480 square foot consultation room.  The planning process was beyond fun and innovative.  Every single detail represented their love story perfectly.  We were so lucky to have a hand in so much of their stunning day.  The flowers, the name cards, the guest gifts and the day of coordination.  We dove right into this day and we are ready for you to do the same...enjoy!
