Bluebird Day

Jessica and Bruce embraced Colorado, the state they now call home, in so many ways for this tight knit celebration. Morning showers, a beautiful ceremony, and an evening sunset through the mountain peaks gave their southeastern friends and family a glimpse into why these two chose Colorado to start their lives together.

Groomsmen’s ties were custom designed to show the topography of Rocky Mountain National Park and the color was inspired by Colorado’s state flower, the Blue Columbine. Bridesmaids’ dresses were also inspired by the flower. Though they are not legal to harvest in Colorado, Fanciful Florist took inspiration from the columbine by incorporating soft blues and violets into the wildflower filled bouquets and centerpieces.

The Colorado theme was found in all the details, small and large. Tables were labeled with Colorado Fourteeners and escort cards were figurines of Rocky Mountain animals like moose, elk, bear, and mountain lions. Sage, also a ubiquitous plant across Colorado, was the primary linen color, accented by white napkins and sashes.

Three Leaf Catering provided an all-vegan dinner buffet that combined Mexican and barbeque to please all of the southern palates. The Makery created the perfect Rockies-themed cake and cupcakes topped with mountains and columbines. After dinner, guests enjoyed Della Terra’s Wildflower Mules while playing cornhole by the patio fire pits. Jessica and Bruce even made time to throw a few bags (one huge benefit to hosting a smaller wedding)!

Alyssa Carpenter captured the love, appreciation, and enthusiasm for one another and the state they call home wonderfully. With umbrellas in the morning, a cotton candy sunset in the evening, and everything in between, this wedding was nearing summer mountain wedding perfection. Add in Pure Sounds Productions to the dance floor and some wildflower seed party favors and it sealed the deal.

A huge congratulations to Jessica and Bruce! Thanks for letting us be a part of it!
