Jen and Joe wed on the second day of November at the iconic Devil’s Thumb Ranch up the road from Winter Park. The two romantics planned their intimate affair for 75 with moody tones, unexpected textures and cozy personalized details.
Upon arrival, guests were greeted with spiked hot coco and bundled under blankets to witness J + J vow to forever. Post ceremony, the newlyweds had the most magical sunset session with the horses of the ranch – our beautiful bride, adorned with a trend worthy wide brimmed hat and a cozy fur jacket was a true vision. Paired with a fresh dusting of November snow, we’ve never seen more a winter wonderland. Meanwhile at cocktail hour, Leia the Beer Burro made a surprise appearance, offering chilled brews and nose snuggles with plenty of photo ops. Wedding celebrations continued in the historic Broad Axe Barn, complete with twinkle lights, customized taper candles and beautiful farm tables featuring arrangements of figs and florals.
The day was filled with intentional details and meaningful personalizations – like how Jen refurbished Joe’s late father’s car from the 70s and surprised her almost-husband rolling up to their first look in style. At it’s core, the wedding was perfectly them and we’re honored to have planned alongside them for such a special occasion.

We absolutely adored working with Katie, Chris, and Katie’s parents Karen and Bill on their wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch! From the first consultation call with Katie we felt a true connection. We also had the opportunity to combine Katie’s non-traditional approach with her mother’s traditional southern roots and it was such a fun experience create! From tropical florals with a rustic twist, provided by The Perfect Petal, to the replica grooms cake of their airstream trailer, provided by Devil Thumb’s Ranch Pastry Team, every detail was truly unique and special!

Where do we even begin with the lovely Caity + Nate? Can we just say that they are couple of lifetime, who are some of the most gorgeous people we know both inside and out, who make us remember why we do what we do, and are why we work such tireless hours! Their wedding weekend nestled in the Colorado Mountains, located at Devil’s Thumb Ranch, was one we can whole heartedly say, we will never forget! Everything, and we mean EVERYTHING, was absolute perfection!
Caity came to us with a vision that strayed from the common themes and palettes we have been seeing over the years. She wanted something brilliantly bold that would wow her guests, and that is just what we curated for her! We brought in some of our steadfast vendors that we can count on, knowing they would bring their creative eye and expertise to Caity + Nate’s special day!
Perfect Petal came on board early in the planning process and we worked with them to create a vibrant color palette that really wowed our bride! The palette was full of bright pinks, blues, purples, oranges and more! Filled with florals that made it difficult to tear your eyes away! As always Perfect Petal showed up on the day of the wedding and did not disappoint! We were gobsmacked by the beauty that they brought to the table!
Eclectic Hive brought in some true wow factors – from the gorgeous seating vignette outside, to the wood feasting tables that served as the head table, to the beautiful teepee that served as the perfect spot for Caity + Nate to do their first look. Which was in fact a SURPRISE! Nate had no idea that sweet Caity was hiding in the teepee when he went to pose in front of it as she quietly snuck out behind him. He turned around to be greeted by his drop dead gorgeous bride! Talk about a swoon-worthy moment! And did we mention the custom donut wall that Eclectic Hive made just for this wedding since the bride and groom are absolutely obsessed with donuts!
LMD Productions came onboard and brought with them six stunning wrought iron chandeliers! Each chandelier was meticulously hung, which served as the perfect way to frame the space and set the mood! And they also helped hang the three statement chandeliers that hung over the head table.
By Design brought in their branson gun metal chairs, which lent the perfect amount of rustic for the look we were striving for! Event Rents contributed their gorgeous grey napkins which served as a great contrast to our bright color palette. Yonder brought in their beautiful wooden chargers, the gold flatware, and the lovely aqua and amethyst mixed glassware. And to be sure no detail was overlooked, Whimsy Design Studio created beautiful hand painted signage + paper goods, and she also pulled the whole theme together with a one of a kind invitation suite which set the theme for the entire weekend!
Did we mention how we still can’t get over Caity’s over the top, too good to be true wedding dress? Let us tell you, that dress was made for her and looked absolutely incredible on her! Caity purchased her dress at Anna Bé and it was designed by BERTA Bridal! We couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful dress for her!
We can hardly believe that the oh so amazing and talented LisaAnne Photography already turned over a sneak peek to us! We are completely melting over these images. We hope you enjoy them and this wonderful couple as much as we did! xx, Calluna

Blanc – This continues to be on our favorite list from last year after hosting our 10th anniversary Modern Marie styled shoot and party! The exposed walls, urban environment and large rooms make this blank space a creative dream. It’s so transformative the options are endless. We are continuing our love affair with Blanc into 2015 with several weddings already booked. Each aesthetic is completely unique and we are so looking forward to transforming this incredible venue.
