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!

Colorful Western Inspired Wedding at Brush Creek Ranch | Wedding Recap | Hampton + Michael

We are over the moon excited to be featuring one of our favorite weddings at Brush Creek Ranch today! Hampton + Michael first met on a blind date that his friends set up for him, while they were both living in London. The two instantly hit it off and five years later, Michael proposed to her in a gondola filled to the brim with gorgeous flowers in Sun Valley. To this day Hampton + Michael wait to get on the same gondola chair that he proposed in whenever they’re in town!

Hampton + Michael had always dreamt of an intimate destination wedding where their loved ones from near and far would gather to celebrate and they both fell in love with Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming for its glamorous western chic appeal. Over the course of the weekend, guests enjoyed a variety of fun activities such as horseback riding, archery, fishing, and more as well as a Western themed welcome party where they took turns riding the mechanical bull, an elegant candlelit rehearsal dinner in the wine cellar, and of course a beyond beautiful and memorable wedding day!

Bold colors danced through the bride + groom’s wedding day, with the ceremony + reception dripping in lilac and dusty blue florals with pops of pamplemousse and buttercup citrus tones and greenery created by The Perfect Petal. Florals kissed the aisle as Hampton walked towards Michael arm in arm with her father to the tune of “Conversations in the Dark” by John Legend, a true vision in her Ines Di Santo gown with a gorgeous cathedral length train and veil that fluttered behind her as she floated across the aisle.

After they said I do, the darling newlyweds led everyone to cocktail hour and then reception in the Cheyenne Club. Guests found their seats with custom shot glasses hand calligraphed by CCR Calligraphy, and so the party began! Warm wood tables were adorned with cream lace chargers, the sweetest vintage floral dinner plates, and a color burst garden of florals! All indulged in the delicious multi-course meal and the peaches and cream wildflower wedding cake!

Hampton + Michael got the party started with their first dance to “You Make My Dreams” by Hall & Oates. “My favorite part of the reception was when everyone started grabbing these purple wildflowers from the arrangements around the stage and there was a sea of purple-puffed flowers in the air and the entire room felt like magic thanks to my wedding planner, Spice, who had what felt like hundreds of these flowers for our guests to hold!”

As the reception neared the end, the bride + groom ran through a tunnel of sparklers and hopped into their vintage, electric blue Ford pick-up truck to make their way to their after party where they danced the night away! Be sure to take a peek at all the magic below from Hampton + Michael’s wedding at Brush Creek Ranch!

Wyoming Summer Wedding with a Ralph Lauren Twist | Wedding Recap | Murph + Jason

Jason + Murph’s summer wedding in Wyoming was effortlessly chic with its sophisticated black and white palette with all the Ralph Lauren vibes! The two met in Denver and immediately connected on their shared love for Wyoming, good music, and adventures. She grew up in Wyoming and after many visits there together, they fell in love and it was a dream come true to celebrate their wedding at her family’s private ranch!

We went to creating their wedding design that juxtaposed authentic, rugged Wyoming with an elegant black-tie affair, keeping it classy with the nods of Ralph Lauren elegance with a moody speakeasy and incredibly fun dance party to follow! Their ceremony took place in the hay meadow with warm wood arches and pews for guests to be seated in with views of the mountains as the backdrop. After the newlyweds said I do, guests made their way to cocktail hour where they sipped on delicious signature cocktails and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Soon there after, they waltzed into the gorgeous tented reception and indulged in a sit-down plated dinner with their nearest and dearest.

The highlight of the evening was the grand reveal of the speakeasy. With it being in a separate tent from the reception, we got to surprise everyone including the bride + groom when we opened the curtains to the party! As we welcomed them into the speakeasy, guests marveled at the moody, eclectic design with the martini bar at the heart of it all, velvety suave lounges to kick back in, and an amazingly talented + high energy funk band raising the roof of the party! We hope you enjoy all the pretty from Jason + Murph’s day!

Western Chic Wedding in the Mountains | Wedding Recap | Holly + Matt

We are so excited to share all the pretty details from Holly + Matt’s western chic wedding weekend at Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado with you! After postponing their wedding due to covid and working with Calluna for two years, what unfolded on their wedding weekend was a dream come true! Dunton Hot Springs is a special place for Holly + Matt as they visited a month after they got engaged and instantly knew it was the perfect place for their wedding immersed in nature with the beautiful forests, mountains, flower fields, and surrounding waterfalls.

Holly + Matt’s intimate wedding was full of personality with rich textures of leather, layered woven rugs, and warm woods with moody moments full of terracotta tones, burgundy, caramel, and greenery playing to the beauty of the mountains and the romantic mining town where it all took place.

Their first look was absolutely breathtaking! Holly floated across the flower fields to surprise Matt in her gorgeous Galia Lahav gown with a tumbling waterfall and luscious trees in the distance. When he turned ‘the world just melted away and it felt like it was just the two of us surrounded by the beauty of the mountains in a field of wild daisies. It was the most perfect moment in time!’

The bride and groom made their way to ceremony where layered woven rugs splashed down the aisle with guests seated at a mix of modern leather, mango wood, and fur chairs overlooking the gorgeous alpines of the Colorado Rockies. Holly’s sweet mom gifted her grandmother’s embroidered handkerchief that she pinned onto her bridal bouquet that she held as they walked down the aisle together. ‘The most serendipitous part about it all was that I also gave my mom a custom embroidered handkerchief as a wedding gift!’ Our hearts just melted as Holly + Matt read their vows to each other and said I do to their forever! 

The guests then made their way to cocktail hour and reception, where they delighted in the newlywed’s signature cocktail ‘The Spicy Sprollie’ named after their pup, enjoyed a delicious meal, and danced the night away underneath the stars! Guests found their seats at warm wood tables dressed with gorgeous florals, acacia wood chargers, moody dinnerware, vintage burgundy glassware, and ribbed champagne coupes to toast with each place setting adorned with watercolor place cards with a bear, moose, deer, or fox as a nod to their love of animals. It truly was a day to remember as Holly + Matt celebrated their love with their nearest and dearest in such good cheer!

The days leading up to Holly + Matt’s wedding were fun filled as the group went horseback riding, picnicked in the forest, enjoyed the hot springs, and attended their incredible cowboy chic rehearsal dinner! Everyone showed up in their cowboy boots and cowboy hats for the BBQ, which ‘made the night feel even more like a celebration yeehaw!’

Holly + Matt’s wedding weekend in the mountains was so dreamy and will always be one that we cherish! We’re so grateful to be a part of their lovely celebration and we hope you enjoy the magic from their wedding celebration!

Audrey + Neil | Beautiful Golden Aspen Fall Wedding

After years of dating and parenting their fur baby Ralph, Audrey and Neil said “I Do” among the golden Aspen trees at John Denver Sanctuary. Aspen is a special place to both Audrey and Neil, so they opted for the prime leaf changing weekend in September. Guests flew in from around the country (and world!) and were treated to fabulous fall weather.
Surrounded by their family and friends, Audrey and Neil delivered heartfelt vows that brought tears to our eyes. Audrey radiated in her Enzoani gown with her classic bouquet from Aspen Branch.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to sip on tasty wine and snacks before heading over to the modern reception at the Aspen Art Museum. It was the perfect night, and guests enjoyed their drinks and food out on the stunning terrace of the museum.
Heartfelt toasts, delicious cake, and an epic dance party make this wedding one we will never forget.

Rachael + Brendan | Classic Vail Summer Wedding

Rachael + Brendan’s love is something for the storybooks. These high school sweethearts have been together over a decade and their love is so solid, families so intertwined, community so supportive. Two of the kindest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, this duo opted for a classic Colorado wedding at the gorgeous Sonnenalp hotel in the heart of Vail Village. Rachael – an event planning pro on her own – curated her clean design with thoughtful pops of personality and color (look at that fun cake!).  With a perfect combination of florals from Rooted Floral Design, paper goods from Nib + Berry and romantic string lighting by Elite, the space was both welcoming and beautiful!

The two said their forever vows in a romantic ceremony accompanied by 140 of their closest friends and family and sweet pup Watson. As the daylight dimmed and celebrations ramped up, this party crowd flooded the floor and danced under the open sky to Diamond Empire Band and loved on this amazing couple all night long. 

R + B –– we adore you and wish you all the love in the world!!

Ashley + Ethan | Camp Hale Vail Wedding

Ashley + Ethan said “I do” at the beautiful Camp Hale in August. Ashley and her Calluna planner Kristen went to college together, so we were thrilled when she trusted Calluna to help with the planning. The day began with the gals getting ready in their gorgeous suite at The Arabelle, and the Fluff team made the ladies look their absolute best.
After Ashley stepped into her stunning Rosa Clara gown, she was ready to see her groom for the first time during their first look on the water at Camp Hale…cue the tears! Ashley and Ethan were surrounded by 120 of their closest friends and family who witnessed their vows while the father of the groom delivered a beautiful ceremony. Gusts of wind made for quite the dramatic entrance for Ashley while she walked down the aisle. The weather turned quickly, and the sun popped out for the most stunning cocktail hour where guests enjoyed the perfect summer evening with signature cocktails and lawn games.
After dinner, guests were treated to some of the most heartfelt and creative speeches we have ever seen. The Maid of Honor rocked it with a tribute to her and Ashley’s friendship that involved, song, dance and other guests getting up and dancing with umbrellas! Best Man and Father of the Bride brought us to tears, and the love for the newlyweds was tangible.
Cake, Macaroons and an EPIC dance party thanks to Raising Cain made this wedding one for the books. We are honored and thrilled to have been a part of this joyous celebration.

Xo, Calluna
