“Pomegranate, Fig and Ivory”

In honor of Back to School, what is a creative way to incorporate apples into a wedding?
“Try using apples as a side dish for your salad or entrée. Baked apples cooked in cinnamon and brown sugar was a staple in my house growing up and it would translate onto your menu beautifully for a light and refreshing bite.”
“I love the look of using green apples as a vase filler for a centerpiece. It really gives a modern look that I love!”
“No one ever drinks their champagne during a champagne toast. Why not offer a caramel apple champagne? Be sure to have the glasses rimmed cinnamon sugar!”
“Back to school also means fall is just around the corner, and to many that means APPLE picking! One way to incorporate those delicious “Fall treats” into your wedding is to serve warm cider with a cinnamon stick!”
“One of the best ways to incorporate apples into a wedding is with an apple dipping station. Let guests relive their childhood by creating yummy dipped apples.”
“A creative way to incorporate apples is through your centerpieces. I love the look of apples floating in tall glass vases. It makes the centerpieces more interesting and adds a pop of color!”

The “First Look” is when the bride and groom see each other before the wedding ceremony. This is an intimate time alone with the most important person in your life on the biggest day of your life. Here are our top three reasons to consider a “First Look” on your wedding day. First, it is more romantic to see each other for the first time alone. This is a private moment shared between the bride and groom. Second, better photographs that capture the groom’s expression when he sees his bride for the first time. Third, more time to enjoy your cocktail hour and reception. Taking all the formal photos before the ceremony leaves more time for the bride and groom to enjoy their PARTY!
Need more convincing? These stunning “First Look” photos speak for themselves…

What is your favorite flower to see in a bouquet?
“I LOVE dusty miller in wedding bouquets. It is perfect for the shabby chic bride.”
“My favorite flower is a peony, so of course this is my flower of choice in any bouquet! I love the delicate look of peonies. They are beautiful flowers with a sweet, classic charm!”
“Anemones are perfect for adding subtle drama and interest to wedding bouquets. They come in a variety of colors, which makes them extremely versatile!”
“Without a doubt, my favorite flower is a peony! They are an exquisite and timeless bloom!”
“I love ranunculus. They work well in any style of bouquet, plus they come in a lot of colors!”
“My favorite flower right now is for sure the Blushing Bride protea. It is a great choice for couples that want to add blush pink or rose gold touches into the wedding. It is also so delicate, yet unique. The only draw back is you can’t get them year round! But when you can, you should definitely try to incorporate them. They add a fabulous touch of texture, especially in bouquets!”

What is the beauty product you can’t live without?
“Foundation that stays put during humid Florida summers is pretty hard to find. I absolutely swear by Chanel’s Vitalumiere Aqua.”
“My #1 fave beauty product that I cannot live without is mascara! I like to try all different brands in all price range… you can never have too much mascara. It’s all about the eyes! On the lower price range, L’oreal Voluminous, and on the higher end “They’re Real” by Benefit.”
“I swear by the power of Panoxyl bar soap!”
“I’m obsessed with Kiehl’s products! I have loved every product I’ve tried.
My absolute favorite products I use by Kiehl’s are nighttime treatments -
the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Midnight Recovery Eye. My skin is so
dry living in Colorado, and these product help restore moisture to my skin
while I sleep. I wake up with smoother, more radiant skin!”
“People ask me almost daily if my eyelashes are real? And the answer is YES! Guerlain Maxi Lash mascara. You can buy it at Nordstrom or Neimans. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’s a $40 tube of mascara, but clearly it works. And those of you who know me well know that I LOVE me some big lashes!!!”
“Kiehl’s BB Cream is perfect for me since I am usually on the go. It is a tinted moisturizer that contains an SPF 50. It takes the place of 3 products in a single application!”
“I CANNOT live without my Dior Flash foundation. This foundation comes in a aerosol can and gives that airbrush look on your skin without actually having to airbrush it. It’s flawless and I love it! “
“ I cannot live without my under eye concealer from Barney’s. The brand name is “Beauty is Life”. On days that I am feeling exhausted and have no energy to apply a full face of makeup, it is all I need. “

What wedding trend are you currently noticing in your market?
“I have seen a ton of weddings with illuminated lettering. Whether it be the couple’s initials, the wedding date or speciality signage… I have seen it everywhere. I love the look, plus it gives the bride and groom a keepsake for their home after the wedding.”
“A wedding trend that we are noticing in Colorado is that the clients are really indulging guests in the food/drink aspect of their event. Couples are offering passed hors d’oeuvres, seated appetizer, salad, intermezzo, trio entrées, as well as late night snacks and dessert buffets. I am also noticing clients are really focused on serving upgraded wines and liquors. Signature drinks are still a hit, but people are getting more creative and thinking past the Cosmopolitan! Imagine a liquid nitrogen blowpop cocktail!”
“I’m noticing that trend-setting brides are now opting for a beautifully bright fuchsia lip… gorgeous!”
“A growing décor trend is vintage mixed with nature. Think wildflowers, farm tables, antique dining chairs and an array of vases. I love the look!”
“One wedding trend that I am noticing in our market right now is that couples are ditching wedding favors and reallocating that money toward welcome bags. Couples are beefing up the welcome bags with amazing swag, personalized gear and unique details that represent their early courtship.”
“A wedding trend I am noticing in the market right now is freehand sketching on wedding invitations. I love this because if you can dream it, an artist can help create it and bring it to life! The possibilities are endless…”
“My FAVORITE wedding trend I have seen these days is sweet and simple, but makes a big statement. When the ceremony takes place, guests will ‘choose a seat, not a side’ and stray away from the traditional seating arrangement of sitting according to your relation to the bride(s)/groom(s). It’s all about the love & bringing families together!”

One of the most enjoyable parts of wedding planning is getting creative! Although creative ideas always seem to be the “visual” aspects of a wedding, enticing the taste buds should be remembered as well! Serving a signature cocktail at your reception is a delicious way to personalize your wedding menu. Couples are choosing to offer His & Hers drink options that reflect their personal taste and style. Cocktail Hour is a time when guests can mingle with friends and meet new ones. Although the cocktail portion of your wedding may not be at the top of your planning agenda, these 60-minutes help set the stage for the dinner and dancing to follow. Envision your favorite happy hour to share with your guests and have fun with drink names. Having fabulous Signature Cocktail menus designed will help your guests pick their fave drink of choice! And don’t forget the non-drinkers. Design something fun for them to drink, also known as a “mocktail”. They will appreciate that you thought of them too! Are you a Blushing Bride or a Mint-To-Be Mojito?

What swimsuit style best suits your personality?
“Spoiler alert: I’m an old soul, so this retro chic swimsuit perfectly fits my old-school style.”
“I despise swimsuit strap tan lines. I always tell my clients to be very aware of this pesky little issue because it can ruin the wedding day photos. This swimsuit also has sparkles, so that is just the icing on the cake!”
“My favorite swimsuits right now have asymmetrical cutouts. They look so hot! Although they cause awful tan lines, who really cares? As a mom I try to look fabulous without looking like a teenager, and I feel these leave a little to the imagination while still looking somewhat sexy and keeping it classy!
“I love the wrap style bikinis! They add an element of fashion and a unique twist on the typical triangle top. Your bikini doesn’t always have to match, so I think it is fun to mix solids and prints to give your swimsuit multiple looks. Wrap bikinis are definitely my summer must have while I work on a fabulous tan!”
“I am obsessed with the blog “a bikini a day”. Tash Oakley is definitely my girl crush and these are my two favorite recent posts.”
“Bohemian bikini equals a Beach Babe… simple, authentic, sexy!”
“I am in love with this swimsuit by L*Space. Now that blush is the ’new black’, I am drawn to it everywhere I go. Its such a unique suit – I love the criss-cross top, soft fabric, and the split-sided bikini bottom. I found it online at www.fromthegirlandthewater.com, and now I own it. It’s a great color on blondes!”

Couples are now using social media like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, to share their wedding day photos with loved ones. It’s a fun way for family and friends to help document your big day from their point of view!
STEP 1: Create a custom #hashtag that is unique to your wedding and easy for guests to remember. Short and sweet is best. It can be a combination of your names, wedding date or whatever your heart desires!
STEP 2: Try to create an original hashtag for your wedding. If you and your fiancé have common names chances are the hashtag already exists. Do a search on your hashtag and if it’s already taken, try slightly modifying it by adding your wedding date to the end.
STEP 3: Let your guests know about your custom hashtag through beautiful signage. This will also add to your décor! Put the signage in a visible spot that guests will see – reception entryway, on the bar, and the gift table are all great locations.
STEP 4: When your guests upload photos using your custom hashtag it allows all photos to be searchable and stored in one place. You can look through the photos posted after the big day, and request your favorites from your friends and family!
BONUS: You can start your custom #hashtag for all the wedding festivities leading up to the big day (engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette party), and document your entire journey from the proposal to the “I DO!”

What can we say! We LOVE Sunday weddings. Contrary to popular belief, people have JUST as much fun on a Sunday as they do on a Friday or Saturday! Ashley & Morgan’s Sunday wedding at the Timber Ridge in Keystone, CO was absolute perfection (those exact words even came out of the bride’s mouth days later in a personal email to us). They had their ceremony on the deck overlooking the beautiful Rocky Mountains, and received the most perfect weather we had seen up there in awhile…and frankly – this couple deserved it! They both reside in Seattle, and were truly one of the most laid back, kind couples we have worked with. Their almost 10 year relationship showed no signs of complacency throughout the day but instead a genuine respect for each other, complete adoration, and a glowing love….truly captured in every shot. Of course, when you have a fabulous married couple, who are also crazy about each other, photographing the wedding, you really can’t help but get lots of raw emotion! Brinton Studios did a fantastic job (as usual) capturing all of the beautiful moments from the first look to the darling details. Not to mention, they are so incredibly talented and easy to work with! Check out this adorable wedding here!
ASHLEY & MORGAN’S KEYSTONE WEDDING
July 16th, 2014 / Comments Off / by Table6
What is your favorite wedding day hairstyle?
“My favorite bridal hair style is when the bride wears it two different ways…up for one portion and down for the other. Most tend to wear it up for the ceremony then let loose for the reception. When it is up, I love the look of something looser, and less structured, almost like a complicated puzzle. Then large loose curls (get some extensions ladies) for the reception!
“Wedding day accessories are the way to add a finishing touch to your look. I love gorgeous barrettes!”
“I love loose, messy side buns. If you are looking for a way to jazz it up then you can always add a custom accessory or flower.”
“My favorite bridal style is one that is so fresh and unique that I’ve yet to see a bride wear it! Stylist Raney O’Keefe came up with this hairstyle for me when we were working together on a photo shoot. I’m dying to see it go down the aisle one day because this glamorous and edgy up-do would look amazing with a veil.”
“I love the look of a clean up-do. This is one of my favorites because it is simple but definitely gives the bride some flair.”
“I LOVE a beautiful loose style that can be worn either as an up-do or off to the side. You want to look like yourself on your wedding day, so I tend to gravitate towards the natural yet polished hairstyles. I prefer an up-do on brides because it seems to hold up the best throughout the wedding day (there will be lots of hugs and dancing)! Incorporating an antique hair comb or beaded headband would dress up these gorgeous hairstyles and create a bridal look your guests will adore!”
