We cannot believe a year has passed since our lavish, over the top, too good to be true Modern Marie Antoinette Styled Shoot + 10 Year Anniversary Party. Where has the time gone? We are affectionately looking back through old photos and they are too good not to share. As signs of Spring are blooming everywhere, our creative juices are flowing and looking forward to the next Calluna creation. See what inspired us the first time around ::

2014 was our company’s ten year anniversary, a huge accomplishment that called for a lavish party. Ten is a very special celebration that called for something over the top, something that you wouldn’t see at just any party. As a business, we love curating an event to a couple’s individual style in an authentic way. Once our own party came around, we had a very specific vision for our styled shoot and party: Marie Antoinette with a modern twist.

For the shoot, we had so much fun folding in elements of the Marie Antoinette era while interlacing our professional and personal style in each element that reflected our interpretation of a “Modern Marie”.

Sophia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette garnered inspiration of the opulent style and golds with pops of unexpected saturated color throughout in the florals, desserts, linens and décor. Working with the best event vendors Colorado has to offer, we created a party and styled shoot that was completely over the top yet strategically arranged for an appealing atmosphere – just as our daring Marie had done.

All areas the day of the event were decked out in decadence – the clothing, the furniture, the tablescape, the flowers, the linens were all unforgettable. Our party resided in the newly opened industrial chic venue in Denver, Blanc. Exposed brick, a warehouse feel and outdoor space were all crucial elements in creating a cohesive space that housed our vision.

Our dreamy styled shoot was coupled with our anniversary party where industry friends, family and vendors (in costume of course) gathered around to reminisce about Calluna’s 10 years in business. What a way to celebrate such a big milestone!
