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!

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!

Jessica + Mark, 5, 3, 13

May, our favorite month of the year.  April is doing the rain thing, and thank goodness because we need some May flowers!  Besides our love of this seasons flowers, we also die for the color palettes we see surfacing.

 

Choosing and committing to a color palette, is not easy.  You want to make sure it is cohesive to the entire day, that you use it enough, and that you do not over use it.  Flowers often play an important role in the big day--adding pops of color, textures and interesting designs to a more muted style, or toning down brighter details, and mellowing out and complimenting a more intricate day.

 

Meet Jessica and Mark--sweet as can be.  These two were such a delight to work with.  A meeting with Bride and Mom, quickly became wine among friends! 

Jessica's early May wedding is a prime example of a perfect color palette.  She made a bold choice to have Clover Green bridesmaid dresses--strapless knee-length and classy.  In order to soften this look and complement her color choice, the flowers were soft, pale and feminine.  

Jessica's bouquet was filled with lush white Peonies, David Austin Garden Roses, white Lisianthus, Queen Anne's Lace, and touches of blush Astilbe. 

 The bridesmaids' bouquets were consistent with the look of the bride-- soft and pale and a true match for the dress.

 A lovely way to begin our favorite month--beautiful girls (thanks to Steele the Spotlight and Hair by Johnnie), a killer color scheme, and lush flowers to tie the day together…oh and who can forget this beauty: 

Thanks to Sarah Joelle Photography for capturing it all!
