Boho Wedding with Pops of Rust and a Mix of Fresh + Dried Flowers | Wedding Recap | Emily + Steve

Camp Hale is one of the venue’s in Colorado that is really special. Situated between Leadville and Vail – the remote nature really gives your guests the most stunning views and overall experience and that’s exactly what Emily & Steve wanted to give their families – many of whom were traveling to Colorado from Kansas and Missouri.

We kicked off the weekend with an intimate rehearsal dinner at The Hythe hotel in Vail followed by a big welcome party at Arrabelle Vail! It was the perfect way to welcome all their guests to Vail for the weekend.

When we started designing their wedding, we knew we wanted to keep a lot of the tones and colors earthy but with a summer twist. The color palette of rust tones mixed in with some lighter colors played perfect to the vast landscape of Camp Hale and the beautiful summer season. It all came together beautifully!

At cocktail hour – guests were treated to spicy margaritas and comfy lounge groupings while these “party people” found their seats at a custom designed escort display. Before heading into the tent – Wandering Poppy Co. blew us away with a lush, organic entrance install. Once inside, guests the boho inspired florals were on full display with an amazing dance floor installation that was paired with pops of color in the glassware and napkins to transform the tent.

After dinner, guests took the dance floor to dance all night to the sounds of Manhattan Band before sending the couple off with a sparkler exit!

Classic Colorado Elegance | Wedding Recap | Jessica + Alex

What do you get when you get two high school sweethearts, families who are best friends, friends who have walked through all chapters of life together – one of the most fun, loving and heartfelt wedding celebrations that we’ve had the pleasure of being a part of.

When Jessica + Alex first came to us at Calluna they had a vision of a chic, classic and traditional Colorado wedding nestled in the mountain of Boulder, right up the hill from where Alex popped the question!

Greystone Castle served as the perfect backdrop for their August I Do’s! With a perfectly pitched Sperry Tent on the front lawn and the sprawling mountain views from the ceremony site, Jessica & Alex welcome friends and family from across the world (some as far as Dubai and Lebanon).

The floral team at The Perfect Petal accent the tent and the farm tables with shades of white, green, and blush accent by classic gold and glass elements to make for a stunning tablescape. Once the summer Colorado rain stopped, a stunning rainbow appeared as guests noshed on appetizers and drank two classic signature cocktails – appropriately named “The Big” and “The Carrie” as a nod to the couple’s home in New York City.

When it was time for the couple’s grand entrance – they were led into the tent by a Lebanese Zaffa Fusion band, a nod to the bride’s heritage and we have never seen anything like it. The guests surrounded the couple and the band on the dance floor and we felt so lucky to witness such an incredible cultural tradition. After guests finally made their way to their seats – the culinary team at Greystone Castle, led by Jacqueline Malcom-Peck served guests a 5-star dinner under the stars!

After an evening followed by heartfelt (and hilarious!) toasts, sentimental dances it was time to kick off the dance-party with our friends from The Get Down! The dance floor was packed all night! To end the evening, at the bride’s request, Shake Shack delivered late night burgers and fries!

We wish Jessica & Alex so many years of happiness!

Erin + Mark’s Urban Downtown Wedding

It is our pleasure to share with you the photos from Erin + Mark’s urban downtown wedding at Blanc. This beautiful celebration was held on the Fourth of July last year and despite the torrential rainstorm that threatened to dampen the spirits of the day, the bride and groom and all the wedding guests still managed to have an amazing time! Erin + Mark tied the knot with the iconic industrial backdrop of Denver and proceeded to have a joyful evening filled with a delicious farm-to-table dinner and endless amounts of love and laughter! Enjoy a few of our favorite snapshots from their special day! xx, Calluna

Meshach + Warren’s Awe-Inspiring Dunton Hot Springs Wedding

There are some couples, some weddings, where the work isn’t work and by the time you get to the ceremony you feel as though you are watching two old, dear friends marry. Couples who make you want to go above and beyond every single minute, who are a complete joy to work with – grateful and trusting the entire way. Meshach and Warren put their wedding in our hands and we couldn’t be more honored and privileged to have met them and the opportunity to be with them this past weekend.

Meshach and Warren reached out to us in November of last year with the idea to plan a late winter wedding in March in the mountains of Colorado. Working quickly in four short months we planned their wedding start to finish; from recommending them to Dunton Hot Springs and all their incredible vendors, we were able to plan every last detail of their wedding weekend. We are still floating on a cloud with just how perfect the weekend turned out! The attention to detail from the Dunton staff, the incredible food, our dream team of vendors, the ambiance, the weather that was timed so perfectly… all of our hard work came together so seamlessly and with such ease. It’s weekends like this that make us so much more grateful and honored to do what we do. 

Read more about this incredible wedding and all the vendors involved on our original wedding weekend recap we shared right after the wedding.

Jessica + Jeff’s Romantic Black Tie Wedding

To start our week off right, we have the images from Jessica + Jeff’s stunning black tie wedding at the Arizona Biltmore. Earlier this year we shared a little sneak peek from this too good to be true wedding that was dripping in elegance everywhere we looked. We could barely pull our eyes away from all the beauty that this wedding had. Not only was this wedding a show stopper for us, but it was also watching a dear friend marry the love of her life! Nothing compares to that. It truly was a special wedding that we were able to play the roles of both wedding planner and friend. Take a moment to glance at these exquisite photos from the oh so talented James Christianson! Trust us when we say you will want to head over to Jessica + Jeff’s portfolio see even more photos there! Enjoy! xx, Calluna

We couldn’t help but fall in love with Heather + Gio’s farm wedding! Set at Ya Ya Farm & Orchard, this wedding couldn’t have been more perfect!
