Vendor Feature - Floriography Flowers

Now that May has finally rolled around, we’ve craving some major floral gorgeousness here on the blog and our soul sisters over at Floriography Flowers always know just how to bring magic into every single floral creation. From boho glam weddings with a bright floral palette to soft, neutral yet classic arrangements to deep, dark, moody bouquets, these goddesses know exactly how to make weddings an absolute dream! We are beyond excited to see what beauty they whip up for our brides and grooms this wedding season!

Mothers' Day Feature - Our Fave Wedding Day Moms

We can’t believe that its already May and that our wedding season has kicked off. While our team has a little time off from shooting weddings this month, we couldn’t help but reflect on some of the most important people on wedding days, moms.

Mothers’ Day might not be until this weekend, but we honestly think that these incredible, beautiful women should be celebrated every single day. From passing down heirlooms for wedding days, to helping our sweet brides and grooms get ready to being the most amazing supporters of both their families and our little business (we see all you amazing gals loving on our social media and buying copies of Rocky Mountain Bride when we get featured), we are sooo grateful for each and every one of these remarkable souls. Thank you for bringing even more love and light to joyous wedding days, you mommas rock our world!

Wedding Inspiration - Wedding Favors

A favorite little wedding day details that our team adores is wedding guest favors. Whether they’re small and thoughtful or more involved, this tiny little ‘thank you’ isn’t quickly overlooked by guests. And while they’re not a mandatory wedding day item, they certainly go the extra mile in making guests feel extra love and appreciation on your special day. Our friends over at Forever Wedding Favors sent us some of their amazing, favorite thank you gifts and we found our personal faves from the last few years!

Valentine's Day Special - Our Fave Romantics

It finally Valentine’s Day and, for us, saying that its one of our favorite holidays is a huge understatement. We ADORE this day and how everyone celebrates the people that they love the most! We are so lucky to have a job that lets us not only hang with the cutest couples, but allows us to witness love on a regular basis! We seriously wish we could put every single romantic on this blog, but we rounded up a few of our standouts from the last few years to give everyone a little taste! We hope you spent today feeling loved and spreading love!!!
