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!

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!

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!

bold, saturated color palette

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!

Jessie + Max / June 27th, 2015 / Bellvue, Colorado

Jessie + Max - a natural, organic, wildflower Colorado wedding!!

Nestled amongst the lush evergreens and the Poudre river, Jessie + Max's wedding day at Archer's Poudre River Resort truly reflects their earthy and lively personality!! Their wedding was a true Colorado wedding - natural, organic, wildflower, and absolutely stunning! We had so much fun with their vibrant color palette, and we just love how these bright colors really popped against their lush greenery backdrop! Angela, from The Willinghams, was there to capture their colorful, woodsy, wildflower day!

Cheers to you, Jessie + Max! Congratulations, and we wish you a lifetime of love and continued happiness for years to come!
