Real Weddings - Borrowed and Blue

Love stories are by far one of our favorite things on the planet, but what we adore a little extra is the history and love behind the couples we get to capture. Every single wedding brings a new story and lots of exciting touches, especially when it comes to the “somethings” of wedding days. From dainty vintage rings passed down through generations that brides have as their “something old” to stellar veils from a loved one as “something borrowed” to discrete turquoise and navy shoes as “something blue”, our brides never fail to wow us with their extremely personal, unique, and downright beautiful details. We loved the stories behind these amazing little touches as much as we loved seeing them in person!!

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!

Real Weddings - Flower Girl Inspo

While brides are the queens of weddings, we can’t help but have a huge soft spot for the other special little ladies on wedding days, precious flower girls! Chalked full of personality and lots of energy, flower girls are always an incredible highlight of weddings. From wearing the fluffiest, tiniest gowns to racing down the aisle moments before the bride is escorted by her father to (literally) dancing the night away, flower girls never stop going on wedding days! We adore these cute little babes and all of the innocence and love they bring to weddings.

Real Weddings - Alter Inspiration

No matter how many weddings we shoot every season, we are constantly in awe of the incredible decor, especially floral designs, that couple select for their alters. Whether its a lush floral arch, a unique wooden tepee, or even a collection of pretty little lanterns, so many of our lovers have picked the dreamiest adornments to say “ I do” in front of and under. Don’t mind us while we’re forever lusting after these incredible set ups.
