B R I D E S M A I D S ♥️ the perfect wedding accessory!

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!!

Maggie + Brendan // September 23. 2017 // Estes Park

THIS beautiful couple. They met at a Dierks Bentley concert only to find out they worked for the same company. After much convincing Maggie gave Brendan a chance, and here we are today. Brendan's laid back, relaxed attitude perfectly compliments Maggie's passion and drive. The two shared their vows at Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Church in Estes Park, and celebrated afterwards with family and friends at the Twin Owls Steakhouse --- the perfect location for a destination Colorado wedding! 

Moriah Sutton photographed their day, and she captured their love so beautifully, we just couldn't wait to share! 

Color palette, burgundy, blush, green, color palette series, wedding colors

The color palette was primarily blush with a touch of burgundy and deep raspberry tones and accenting greens with foliage and pines --- a colorado dream bouquet! 

Moriah Sutton captured the details of Maggie and Brendan's day so wonderfully, not a single component was missed! 

We loved this crown created with spray roses, calcynia, and eucalyptus --- Maggie wore it so well!!

The look of the Groom's face as he sees his Bride for the first time on their wedding day is an incredible moment, this is why we love first looks! There's just something about seeing each other for the first time in private, it's very sentimental and creates the perfect opportunity for the most beautiful and emotional photographs! 

The mix-matched, blush bridesmaid gowns were from the Vera Wang collection at David’s Bridal.  And Maggie's unique, one of a kind dress was custom designed especially for her from Blushing Bride in Frisco, Texas.  

Maggie's beautiful hair was done by Ray Hornback from Voltage Hair. Makeup was by Keegan Steele from Steele the Spotlight, talk about a dream team! She literally took our breath away!

The perfect Father-Daughter walk down the aisle at the beautiful Church, Our Lady of the Mountains. 

Maggie and Brendan chose to have simple ceremony decor with an arrangement at the base of the Church altar to bring the color palette into their ceremony space! 

This fur coat though!! 

Hanging and trailing ribbons add a wispy and ethereal movement to wedding photos, and we think they are just the best accent to bridal bouquets!! 

We'll never tire of welcome sign flowers, the perfect way to usher your guests into your reception! 

Maggie and Brendan chose to have garlands for their reception table decor, perfect for the long tables at Twin Owls Steakhouse

Greenery chandeliers are a must for a warm and celebratory Colorado mountain reception! 

Marcie from Colorado Rose Company decorated this stunning cake --- accented with olive branch, seeded eucalyptus, and spray roses. 

Maggie and Brendan's day was made so beautiful with the help of the following incredible vendors!

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!
