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!

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!

"She went to the mountains to find her Hill"
