MEET Chelsea

Inspired by the natural romance of the mountains and country, every detail in this editorial design was incredible. From the two ethereal bridal looks, the neutral but romantic table setting, and wildflower-like arrangements that looked like they were just plucked from the garden. This mountainside micro wedding inspiration will have you pining for a wedding in Colorado that’s smaller, but still has all the bells and whistles.

This shoot was designed by the incredible MaryClaire and Rachael Ellen events. They pulled together a team of vendors that was sure to impress, and impress they did. The bride wore an an off the shoulder LEANNE MARSHALL gown with a perfectly-puffed sleeve and the groom wore a sage tweed suit. These looks paired perfectly with the intimate ceremony setup featuring a white ground floral arrangement that looked like it was blossoming right out of the earth. It was natural, yet elevated and romantic.

The bride and groom’s second look for the reception was just as show-stopping. The bride wore a NEWHITE BRIDAL gown, antique statements earrings, and a sleek up-do. The groom swapped his simple sage suit for a black tux which was just the right statement against the backdrop of the mountainside and sage brush.

The table setting was again, natural and romantic, with a soft color palette of natural ivory linen and soft taupe napkins paired with grey china, ivory bone flatware, and classic glassware. 

The stationary by Ink and Press Co was inspired by the pairing of old English countryside and the natural elements therein. The paper suite even featured blind embossed chocolate box favours, rose tea bags, and a custom rosé label that matched the crest outline of the invitation.

This editorial was one I am so thrilled to have been a part of. Capturing the hard work and artistry of so many talented vendors was a true blessing and one that I will always remember fondly!

Mountainside Micro Wedding Inspiration

January 6, 2021

There’s just something so magical about In-Home Motherhood Sessions. This one, in particular, holds a special place in my heart. For one, it’s of one of my very best friends and two of her sweet little ones. You’ve seen them before on the blog a couple of times. But this was also the first session […]

You may have noticed a bit of a shift on my Instagram and website these days. I’ve been photographing a lot of families, newborns and branding sessions alongside my booked weddings. It’s been bringing me so much joy. One of the reasons I love Portrait sessions, like this Studio Newborn Session on film, is because […]

This isn’t the first time you’ve seen this adorable family. They’re great friends of mine whom I’ve photographed for some of their biggest milestones! What could be more of a gift?! They were one of the first couples I ever shot engagements for and I even got to photograph their maternity photos last year! This […]

This Denver fall family session was so beyond beautiful. The mountains, the glowy grass, this sweet family. I met Theresa and Joe at Jackass Hill Park (forgive the name 😬) in Littleton just before sunset to get this fabulous light. The views from his grassy park of the mountains is just gorgeous. It is definitely […]
