We’re so excited Holly + Matt’s two-part wedding is featured on BRIDES!
Holly + Matt hosted an intimate western Colorado ceremony and celebration at Dunton Hot Springs with twenty of their nearest and dearest family members in attendance and exactly one month later, the newlyweds hosted a larger reception at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards! While having focused on a western chic aesthetic for their Colorado nuptials, we designed their reception with a sophisticated boho theme featuring playful patterns and colorful touches with hints of the tropics woven throughout.
We worked with our incredible vendor team to transform the reception space into an organic oasis with hanging greenery, rattan lanterns, wooden chairs, and neutral tablecloths. Bright floral centerpieces were juxtaposed with a black-and-white geometric runner and black napkins, which created visual intrigue. Gold flatware and napkin rings added a hint of glimmer to the tablescape. We’re springing for joy as we share more about their reception at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards with you!

We are thrilled to share that Brooke & Sam’s wedding was on Ruffled this week. Here’s the original blog post below!
Australian florals, horseshoe escort cards and a family-style feast enhanced with bowls of citrus? We simply can’t get enough of Brooke and Sam’s Colorado wedding captured by Harper Point Photography. Calluna Events once again designed a gorgeous Colorado wedding with floral design by Lalé Floral Design, who added Aussie blooms like Kangaroo Paws, Geraldton Wax and Gum Nuts since the bride is from Australia herself.
From the groom, Sam: Our pie in the sky idea was for everyone to just go up to the mountains and camp out together for a few days, but my (Sam’s) family was too big for that, so we tried to keep it simple and so people could just hang out and enjoy the scenery and party. There were no real themes. We did try to incorporate things from Western Australia, where Brooke’s from, like good wine, some of the food, and native flowers. Both WA and Colorado are semi-arid places with beautiful scrubby grasses and wildflowers, so it worked well.
No themes or color schemes. We and our friends made all the signs and the music, and the day before the wedding Sam put together the chandelier that hung from the trees in the middle of the dining area.
There were Kangaroo Paws and Geraldton Wax flowers, both Australian natives, as were the few different types of Eucalyptus leaves and the gum nuts. There were peonies, proteas, dahlias, thistles, roses, ranunculus, raspberries… all sorts of others that I can’t name.
All the music was provided by our friends. The processional music was this beautiful bittersweet Malagasy guitar music played by our friend Andrew. They struck up the traditional Yiddish tune “Siman tov u’mazel tov” when the ceremony was over. After dinner the full band (Mamarazzi, from NYC) played a set to kick off the dancing. For the first dance they were joined by our friends Patrick and Colleen Lee to play “Shama Lama Ding Dong” by the fictional band Otis Day and the Knights, followed by the parents’ dance, “Caravan” by Van Morrison. (Brooke’s dad is a huge Van fan so we knew it would have him in tears). And then Patrick Lee took over as DJ for the rest of the party.
