Mack + Shelby, a Winter Wedding at Four Seasons Santa Fe

Mack and Shelby, where do we even begin? These babes actually went to the same high school, however their paths didn’t cross until they both attended college at Texas A&M. After dating for a bit, the pair separated, only to later on realize how special they were to each other! They reunited and later on decided that it was a forever thing. Mack, being major #husbandgoals, told us that not only is Shelby beautiful and caring, but that she is truly the light of his life. We don’t have enough words (or enough tears) for this sweet little love story!

These babes tied the knot in December 2018 at our favorite, cozy mountain getaway, Four Seasons Santa Fe. With a touch of magic and pure boho glam from Amy and her team at For the Love Events and Rust Vintage, this day was out of this world. We still wish we could keep the velvet accent furniture and neon sign from this day! Our gals at Floriography Flowers came through with the perfect moody, winter floral arrangement and made sure that every single detail was amazing. And besides the amazing design, Mack and Shelby made sure that all of their guests (and vendors too!) were well taken care of for the entire night. These little lovers helped us close out our 2018 wedding season in the most perfect way! Congrats Mr and Mrs Paulson, we love y’all so much!

Blake + Jennie, a Garden of the Gods Wedding

Blake and Jennie’s wedding may have been an epic day in Colorado Springs, CO, but their little love story started far far away in Darwin, Australia. Both of them work as Marines and were stationed in the Land Down Under for a major exercise. After five months of working together, Blake asked Jennie out on an official date. and from that point on they knew their connection was something special. Even though their stations kept them in a long distance relationship, Blake in Japan and Jennie in South Carolina, they never gave up on their relationship! During the Christmas and New Years holiday season, Blake flew across the world to spend a weekend with Jennie where he ended proposing before returning to Japan for work a few days later.

Besides having one of the most swoon worthy love stories around, these babes know how to throw a party! With help from the talented team at For the Love Events, Blake and Jennie pulled off a crazy-beautiful, incredibly authentic wedding in our sister state Colorado. They started off their day with a ceremony at the stunning Grace and St. Stephan’s Episcopal Church in Colorado Springs and then adventured into the mountains of Garden of Gods Park with our girl Ashley for some stunningly breathtaking romantics. As usual, there were sooo many details that we’re still daydreaming about, from the bridesmaids boxer inspired robes to Jennie’s sleek wedding gown hidden under an incredible Jenny Packham overskirt to Blake’s custom suit from Japan to all of the rustic reception details. We seriously wish that we could spend every day with these sweethearts! Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Deignan, we love you and your epic love story beyond words!!

Styled Sunday - a Ghost Ranch Vow Renewal

When it comes to the Southwest, there is simply nothing more magical than a glowing twilight evening at Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu, New Mexico.  Bold hints of turquoise, soft dusty rose hues, and ethereal touches of cream make the perfect color palette for an romantic, authentic evening in the desert. Set amid the dramatic backdrop of New Mexico's expansive mountains and never-ending plains, this perfectly intimate, family-centered evening is complimented by Mother Nature's Southwest region. From lush adornments of  pampas grass to the burning of Palo Santo to indulgent Zapoteca drinking chocolate, this vow renewal is anything but ordinary. Welcome to an evening of all things extraordinary.
