Featured – Denver Magazine

colorado wedding denver magazine feature vintage modern bouquetSo I was at the store earlier this week, and I just happened to grab the February issue of Denver Magazine off the stands to flip through it.. I had heard that there was an article on Colorado Wedding Trends and I wanted to see. And then.. (gasp!), there, lo and behold, staring up at me from the page, was MY PHOTO! A full page of the most gorgeous bouquet created by florist Nicole Iverson at Swank Stems (who had submitted it to Denver Magazine – thanks, Nicole!) So of course I just had to share the news with you, blog. :)

Above is a scan of the front cover of the Feb edition of Denver Magazine, paired with the full-page (pg 63) that features Swank Stems‘ incredible bridal bouquet. Nicole is so creative in her designs, and this one is absolutely stunning – romantic and elegant,  incorporating lace and feathers and a vintage broach -so unique, and it pops from the green background. I just love it.

And because my scanner just doesn’t do it justice, here’s the original. <swoon>denver colorado vintage bridal bouquet lace feathers broach

Denver Wedding Photographer ~ Vendor Spotlight

Bella Bridesmaid is located on the corner of Josephine and Third in the Cherry Creek North neighborhood of Denver. This unique store specializes in bridesmaids’ dresses, and offers a comprehensive selection of designers, styles, colors, and fabrics (love the dupioni silks!) While the focus is bridesmaids’ dresses, the store does carry a few very simple wedding gowns and flower girl dresses, as well as a selection of wedding accessories. And Rae, the owner, is absolutely wonderful, providing a wealth of industry expertise and a vast knowledge of current wedding trends and styles.

Colorado Maternity Portraits

colorado denver family maternity portraitYou may recognize Alissa & Josh.. maybe from their gorgeous Colorado engagement session atop Vail mountain.. or possibly from their incredible dowtown Denver wedding where we got to shoot in LoDo in the rain (before heading to the Evergreen Lake House for the reception).. or perhaps it was from Alissa’s ah-mazing ‘trash the dress‘ photo shoot in the water? Regardless, Alissa & Josh are well-versed as models in front of the camera, and they are some of the most incredible people that I know. When they contacted me to tell me the news they were having a baby I was absolutely thrilled. They are going to be the most amazing parents.

A few favorites from their recent maternity session..
