Ladybird loves a good challenge - and that's why we opted to design for three brides this past weekend! People have been asking us how we did it - but that's a secret we'll spill another day. We loved our sweet brides: Caitlin, Linnea, and Jenny. 

All in all, last weekend made for one busy bustle - but we wouldn't trade it for anything. 
We're enjoying some much needed downtime until our next big event next week...until then! 


Angie and Jeff

Last weekend Ladybird had the incredible honor of designing for Angie and Jeff in Aspen. The ceremony was held at the Aspen Chapel, a quaint church tucked away in the mountains. 

 Angie and Jeff's reception was held at the Flying Dog Ranch in Carbondale. The backdrop to their reception site was so impressive that our designs seemed to serve as a mere supplement to the naturally existing beauty! Another stunning setting for their celebration!
We won't let an injury take over 
In addition to the ceremony and reception, Ladybird also provided arrangements for the rehearsal dinner the night prior at Base Camp in Snowmass.  Angie wanted to incorporate elements of floral design in just about every aspect of her wedding - which made for lots of moving parts and a ton of fun design! Sarah had a injury while designing, but thankfully, it didn't slow us down much! 

Lovely peonies pre-design

We are genuinely grateful for having had the opportunity to create for Angie and Jeff's momentous occasion. What a delightful couple to design for! We are excited for the professional photos to filter through. We will be sure to share once we get a glimpse!
All the best in your bright journey together Angie and Jeff.


Stephanie and Zach

This past weekend we were THRILLED to design for Stephanie and Zach. A darling couple who got married in the Highlands and had their reception at the Mile High Station. 

Stock, upright amaranthus, lisianthus, veronica, dusty miller,

Steph's theme was a conglomeration of rustic chic and modern industrial. Think lush romantic flowers set within the context of lots of concrete, exposed brick, and metal. A tasteful blend of both femininity and masculinity. 

Hyrdangea, scabiosa pod, hypericum, brasilia berries 
We loved Steph's neutral color scheme highlighted with pops of coral. The result was one of elegant playfulness. 
Hydrangea, scabiosa, amaranthus, veronica, 
All our best to the happy couple! 


Alana & Doug

Last weekend we were privileged with the opportunity to design for an incredible couple - Alana and Doug. These two were some of the most laid back individuals we have ever worked with! Their wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Colorado History Museum. We'd yet to design for this venue and were delightfully surprised to find that it was a bright and spacious setting with tons of natural lighting (not our first thought when we envisioned a museum environment!)

Alana is a big fan of succulents and gifted them as party favors for guests. 

These sweet guest favors were set at each place setting
We loved Alana's color scheme of yellows and greens that fit perfectly with her 'au natural Colorado' theme. The flower centerpieces were vivid pops of color against the grey groomsmen suits, bridesmaid dresses, and tablecloths!

Rosemary, billy ball, poppy pod, and succulent boutonniere for the groom

All of our love to the happy couple! 


McKenzie and Mike

This past Memorial Day weekend we had the privilege of designing for McKenzie and Mike!
Their big day was held at the Manor House in Ken Caryl Valley. A stunning historic mansion built in the early 1900s. McKenzie's pallet was one of subdued peach hues and plenty of blush colored flowers. She gave us free reign to design as we saw fit - in whatever containers we pleased. Thankfully, we discovered The Barn just prior to this wedding where we found a storehouse of antique goods at unbeatable prices. We were able to incorporate them into McKenzie's reception for a somewhat eclectic yet seamless vintage visual display.

The Manor House staff was a delight to work with and we highly recommend stopping by The Barn in Castle Rock for some amazing finds! Cheers to McKenzie and Mike - all the best in the married years ahead of you!


Kyle and Nic

This past weekend we had the opportunity to design for an adorable couple - Kyle and Nic. We loved designing a few accent pieces for their big day. (Ladybird's brother had the honor of standing in their wedding!) 

 Crooked Willow Farms is the sort of venue where any occasion held there is a spectacular one - we're thrilled every time we have an excuse to visit and work on this amazing site. Kyle chose fuchsia and peach for her color pallet- an uncommon pairing that we absolutely loved! The bright pop of purple against the subdued apricot hues made for a stunning array.

 We used large mercury containers (pictured here)

and draped the ever romantic agapanthus around the vase for a soft look. Sprouts of Queen Anne's Lace added to the ethereal, gentle look of the composition! 

Aisle nosegays (tulip, hydrangea & camille)

We loved these hand sewn linens for the cocktail tables provided by the mother of the bride. 

All our best to the happy couple!
