Diana and Devin planned their entire Colorado wedding from their home in Texas. From the start, Diana knew she wanted to mix the color blue-a deliberate nod to the Blue Bonnet, the Texas state flower-and bright, summery yellow. Blue Colorado skies, yellow roses and sunflowers, and the surrounding vibrancy of the ski town helped bring this combination to life.
The distinctive wood and steel elements of Allie’s cabin proved to be a welcoming base for the brightly incorporated color scheme. The intimate wedding took place in Allie’s Cabin, nestled high above the town of Beaver Creek, on a deck facing aspen covered mountain side. Following the ceremony, guests moved indoors for a fabulous night of dinner and dancing. Later, honey jars from a local Colorado honey company were given out as favors.
It was a great pleasure to work with this amazingly cute couple and their family to put together one incredible day. Thank you so much to This Modern Life Photography for these fantastic images!

Danielle and Chad took these beautiful photographs in downtown Denver with Zorn Photography. We are working with them to design and plan their wedding on New Years Eve at the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek! The beautiful back drop of the Colorado mountains will be a perfect setting for Danielle and Chad to start their lives together.
Thank you to Jody and Zach with Zorn Photography for sharing these gorgeous photos!
Today we move on from the Georgian and Regency periods to one of the most romantic eras in history – the Victorian era. Beginning in 1837, when Queen Victoria ascended the throne of England, and ending in 1901, this period was one of great prosperity for the British people.
The fashions of the era were often accented with lace and ribbon, and skirts were made full with hoops and petticoats and flounces. Bodices often bared the shoulders, sometimes featured elaborate sleeves, and cinched in ladies’ waists to impossible sizes. Gloves were often worn, as were ribbon-bedecked bonnets. Heavy silks and satins in bold colors were popular.
In the later Victorian era, large hoopskirts went out of fashion and narrow skirts with large bustles came in. Princess-line dresses became very popular. Choker necklaces and jeweled collars were also in style, made fashionable by Alexandra, Princess of Wales. It is interesting to note that this is the era in which the white wedding gown was introduced. When Queen Victoria chose to be married in a white dress, it set the stage for all women of fashion. The tradition took even stronger hold in America when Grace Kelly wore a stunning white gown to her wedding.
Designers who have created dresses similar to those of the Victorian Era include www.priscillaofboston.com and www.platinumgown.com. Add a jeweled collar and satin gloves for extra flair! Your bridesmaids should be dressed similarly – with collars and gloves and their hair pinned up.
The makeup should be fair and simple, with pale cheeks and smooth creamy skin. Light lipstick and a loose, curly coiffure is perfect for hair.
Your tableware could be styled with Victorian china. Décor ought to reflect the tastes of the period – somewhat extravagant. Think of doing large vases overflowing with mixed flowers and embroidered linen napkins.
