I had the great honor of collaborating with ROCKY MOUNTAIN BRIDE MAGAZINE for their annual wedding inspiration spread. There is nothing better than seeing your work in print!! We spent a beautiful day at C LAZY U RANCH in Granby, Colorado among the striking horses, rustic barns and rolling hills to bring this wedding day inspiration to life. When we wrapped after a long day of shooting, I couldn’t pull myself away. I lingered well past sunset when the ranch seemed to take on a whole new personality.

When you live in a breathtaking place like Colorado, the mountains become the natural backdrop for almost every wedding inspiration shoot. This day we wanted to show brides that by brining in thoughtful design elements, you can create a feeling of being transported to another place and time. With a modern take on an English Garden in mind, we set out to scout the perfect Tudor home in Denver. The backyard of this private residence was the ideal place to set up all our classic elements. I forgot I was in Colorado for a minute. The MEGA talent MICHELE HART PHOTOGRAPHY | BLUEBIRD PRODUCTIONS | PREMA STYLE | LANA’S SHOP | MEAGAN JOY CAKES | LIZ WEGRZYN | LITTLE WHITE DRESS.

I had the great fortune of traveling to Nicaragua recently with my partner in crime ASHLEY SAWTELLE It was technically a “work-cation” but it didn’t feel much like work when I was foraging tropical blooms and navigating through local markets to find the freshest flowers for my designs. To say that this trip changed me is an understatement. The people, culture and landscape are vibrant, open and joyous.  As someone always seeking new experiences, never traveling to the same place twice – Nicaragua inspired me in a special way and I will return! MAGNOLIA ROUGE created a gorgeous feature HERE.

“Speak only that which is true, kind, helpful and necessary.” We were inspired by the meaning of the model Sataya’s name which lead to the lovely story behind this shoot.  We had so much talent collaborating on this one, including ASHLEY SAWTELLE and LAUREL & ROSE.  From the perfect light on the rocks to the nostalgic feeling of the reception, it was flawless.  If every day could be like this one, I would be satisfied for an eternity.  Read more of Satya’s story on MAGNOLIA ROUGE HERE.

How sweet are Danica and Cyrus?!  They braved the cold up at Red Rocks and got some stunning photos as a result by Ashley Sawtelle.  They were so smitten with each other that they barely noticed the weather.  January is a great time for peonies and I took full advantage for this bouquet.  I added in layers of greens and a little bit of texture with the berries for interest.  They will be married this summer at a private ranch near Ouray, Colorado.  I can’t wait to see more from this gorgeous, loving couple.  Until then, please enjoy the full STYLE ME PRETTY feature here.
