Sacred Love: A Romantically Styled Photo Session at Beaver Creek Resort {Bold Fall Colors, Vintage Details & Spanish Flair}

Leaves are changing, the weather is getting cooler and pumpkin recipes are taking over Pinterest. This has me craving everything Autumn.  Which brings me to today’s fall wedding inspiration post I couldn’t wait to share.  With the golden light and colors that autumn brings, this time of year is one of the most popular times of year to wed.  A few months ago we had the privilege of participating an Sacred Love: A Romantically Styled Photo Session at Beaver Creek Resort.  The mastermind behind this styled event was Laura Pearson, wedding planner and founder of L Elizabeth Events.  Laura selected the luxurious Park Hyatt Beaver Creek for her Spanish inspired photo shoot and recruited the incredibly talented Meredith Harris, of Meredith Harris Photographers to capture each and every amazing detail.  Along with some super creative Denver Wedding pros Laura styled an intimate wedding celebration overflowing with candles, bold fall colors, delicate touches of vintage, and Spanish flair.  The rich color palette of burgundies, metallics, oranges and ivories mixed perfectly with the warm hues of this stunning dining room.  Be prepared to gather a plethora of fashion, floral, cake and tablescape inspiration, and get the full list of all the participating Denver wedding professionals at the end of this post!

Have you every heard of Wet plate photography?  Wet plate collodion is a process that dates back to 1850 and was used until about the 30’s. Commonly known as tintypes, they began to fall out of favor in 1870 once paper was invented. The photographs are created chemically. You can tell from these beautiful images below, that it’s not a style, it’s a process. A labor of love if you will.

Hello there! Welcome to part 3 of our Pop Sip Celebrate feature! You can check out part 1 here and part 2 here!  And in case you did happen miss our previous posts here’s a quick little recap to catch you up.  Last month I was given the opportunity to produce a bridal event for Epernay Lounge, a fabulous champagne lounge in Denver’s theater district.  This party’esque bridal showcase featured a plethora of talented wedding creatives and a whole lotta pretty 2015 wedding trends. We partnered with a&bé bridal shop who provided the dreamy wedding gowns featured in today’s Indie Wedding Gowns + Downtown Denver Photo Shoot by Levi Tijerina. Keep scrolling and start pinning!

We were lucky enough to have some incredible artists on hand to help get our drop-dead gorgeous models all dolled up. Makeup by Heather B. and Nicole Toledo Makeup Artistry created fresh-faced dewy looks for our bride models that had their skin glowing in all the right places. Our hair stylist and braid extraordinaire Jessica Marquez, created soft loose braids to compliment. I have to mention that all of these artists are as lovely as they are talented.
