This floral focused shoot was adorned with hot saturated colors in a breakaway from the contrasting New Mexico desert. The hand-selected flowers were very feminine and fun with bold splashes of red, pink, orange, and chartreuse. The armature is a kinetic and industrial form that added movement and energy to the florals.

This pretty stylized shoot was set in one of the most beautiful spots in Durango (the “secret meadow” just past Turtle Lake). We absolutely LOVE the amazing floral bouquet designed by April’s Garden. The greenery runner and individual cakes adorning the rustic farm table creates a simple yet elegant tablescape perfect for any southwest Colorado celebration.

This romantic shoot has us dreaming of spring. We love the backdrop of white flowering trees, the romantic Claire Pettibone gown, and the pretty bouquet and floral crown incorporating Pantone’s 2017 color of the year, greenery.
Inspired by the alluring Italian movie star, Sophia Loren, this wedding inspiration shoot showcases a timeless, romantic, and glamorous European affair with a luxurious vibe. To help capture the essence of Italian glamour, the couple was styled to the nines. With the groom in the most dapper steel gray tux, the bride donned diamonds, fur, Louboutins, and a Kelly Faetanini bridal gown before changing into a poppy red Monique Lhuillier party dress, perfect for dancing the night away! The shoot features a color palette of rich colors found in Italy’s wine region landscape: deep reds, purples, greens, gold, and a pop of Tiffany blue. The bride and groom arrived to their swanky soiree chauffeured in a restored vintage London Cab, and after dining al fresco, bid “Arriverdverci!” to guests, as they zoomed off on a cherry red vespa to Happily Ever After!
The wood feasting table-top featured custom designed menus and place cards, as well as cut crystal glassware, gold flatware, and the most beautiful mismatched teacups and china to add interest and detail making each place setting unique.
The elegance continued into soft seating vignettes accented by gold and crystal candelabras and to-die-for lush florals that included organic Tuscan inspired elements like real grapes, artichokes, and pears, in addition to an olive branch garland accented with deep-toned garden roses, anemones, and dahlias.
