From the photographers: “What an incredible experience we had bringing this dream to reality! The day we visited Boettcher Mansion, fog had settled all around, and the white of the fog began mixing with the white of the snow. Walking around the forest grounds felt so ethereal, and we knew right away that it was the perfect location for the shoot. As the snow melted, we were able to bring our beautiful details into the forest. We love the look of soft, romantic colors and chose a color palette incorporating pink, cream, peach, mint, and a dark purple accent.
We used a gorgeous barnwood table from Chairished Vintage Rentals to create our tablescape, and Vintage Rentals Denver brought such treasures to the table! Mismatched china plates and teacups, antique napkins, place card holders made from wine bottle corks, and vintage armchairs for the bride and groom. Pink Posey Designs adorned the tables and chairs with their floral masterpieces, and a delicate stem was tied to each cloth napkin with twine.
We placed the wedding cake and other tasty confections atop a vintage sewing machine table, while driftwood woven with cream-colored roses hung high above. Our final vignette began with flowers spilling from teacups that hung on tree branches, with a vintage suitcase filled with blooms and books of love poems, and a birdcage place card holder rested nearby.
Magnifica Bella and Captivate by Aleigha created stunning makeup and hair for the models, and Jamie’s dog, Berkley, proved to be the perfect model. We couldn’t have been more pleased with such a creative and talented team. This shoot was a dream to photograph!” –Lynn of David Lynn Photography and Jamie of Jamison Gale Photograph
To get you geared up for the holiday weekend, we wanted to share some of our favorite sparkler send-offs from recent real weddings. It’s a great nod to the Fourth that makes a fun and exciting ending to a celebration at any time of the year. And photos of sparkler send-offs are always among our favorites! Here are a few gorgeous sparkler images to inspire you. Have a great weekend!

Many couples choose to have a patriotic wedding that coincides with 4th of July, but that doesn’t mean your color palette has to resemble Yankee Doodle Dandy or Uncle Sam. Instead, show your love for America with subtle pops of red, white or blue! Here’s our salute to bridal shoes:
Would you rather be comfortable as you walk down the aisle? If your primped and pampered toes can agree, choose these firecracker red ballet flats.

We often forget about the events leading up to the wedding, especially the bridal shower. Why? Because you’re not supposed to plan it! You get to be the guest of honor as your closest female friends and family gather to girl-talk, eat and lavish you with gifts. Lately though, brides have been steering away from the age-old tradition and choosing their own steal-worthy theme. We love how this bridal shower is an interactive picnic. Guests were able to pick their blanket to sit on and basket to place their food in. It almost makes us want to take a trip down the rabbit hole from Alice in Wonderland. Grab a cup of tea, point your pinky and join this charming celebration:

For the boho-chic bride, we’re ending this week with an inspiring romantic style shoot for you! It’s no secret that we love floral crowns filled with big, billowing blooms as a veil alternative. They’re such statement pieces worth wearing. (Believe it or not, this trend is not just for flower girls anymore!) Match your floral crown with a delicate lace wedding gown or side fishtail braid hairstyle. See more of the delicious details below, including cake and macaroons:
