Real Wedding Inspiration :: The Flower House, Denver, Colorado

Julie and Joe’s “fairy tale” wedding took place at the Cherokee Ranch and Castle in Sedalia, Colorado. The breathtaking castle is located on 3100 private acres overlooking a scenic valley with a view of the Rocky Mountains.

The bride’s vision was romantic elegance with touches of sparkle and whimsy.
The color palette of pale pink, lavender, and sand was perfect for the romantic feel Julie wanted.
The flowers consisted of roses in several varieties including Cool Water, Ocean Song, Quick Sand, and my personal favorite- Sophie. We also included apricot, lavender and pale pink stock, pale pink and green hydrangea, kale, french lavender, calcinia, lavender clematis, and southern smilax for textures.

The bride’s cascading bouquet was made to flow and compliment her stunning Vera Wang gown. We used hydrangea, cafe au lait dahlias, white celmatis, calcinia, ranunculus, and a variety of roses. Boutonnieres were made with small groupings of lavender.

The bride’s mom provided 8 large glass vases which were hung in the tent and filled with sweet smelling stock. They added a nice design element to the tent and created a warm and garden feel.
