Summer is a time when nature is generous with the gifts of life. It is full of fragrant flowers and succulent fruit. Colorado is a place where we are always inspired by nature’s untamed design. From domineering peaks to delicate wildflowers and colorful sandstone formations to sturdy green firs, it is full of rugged beauty.

Our featured event is set in the wilds of the Gore Range on Piney River Ranch. We particularly love how the design and nature come together to accentuate the elevated elegance in this natural Rocky Mountain cathedral. Though this majestic space has been here for millennia, it continues to inspire each sojourner that has embraced its beauty.


If you've never been, Piney River Ranch is truly a magical place with unforgettable views. These very peaks were the focal point for our bride and groom's wedding day and the gift they wanted to share with their loved ones. Our favorite thing about all the wild spaces in Colorado is how we can interact with the forces of nature with our event design concepts and in every creative detail. This summer, we hope you go explore the great Rocky Mountains. The wild spaces are calling you to discover their hidden treasures and add them to your list of favorite places to visit. For a summer suggestion, we've included a trip itinerary for the untamed western slope of Colorado. There's so much to see and do on the wild side of the continental divide.

COLORADO WILD

The Western Slope of Colorado has much to offer but may get overlooked for the beautiful and convenient I-70 ski-towns. With an abundance of trails, hiking, biking, hidden gem Colorado wineries, and orchards, we thought an area less traveled, the Grand Mesa region, would be a great road trip to remember.


One of the most interesting hotels in Colorado, The Gateway Resort, is the destination of the trip. The resort offers luxury among the ruggedness of the Colorado terrain. Onsite they have a great restaurant and access to property trails. It is in the heart of the mesa and butte country. This resort embraces the landscape and culture while offering luxurious amenities.

While in the area we also suggest taking a day trip to Grand Junction and the neighboring town of Palisade (known for their peaches) for a tour of vineyards and wineries. From the Gateway Resort, it takes about an hour, give or take, to reach Grand Junction and Palisade. You can arrange transportation and even curated wine tours with the Gateway concierge.

Some Palisade wineries we recommend include Colorado Cellars (Colorado’s oldest winery), Colterris, and Mesa Park Vineyards. While visiting the wineries, don’t forget to stop by one of the many orchards for some fresh fruit. At the end of the day, make sure to get a reservation at the charming and highly cultivated Peche restaurant.

The winter fleeteth like a dream, The rain is past and over;

The sea is lit with sunny gleam, The hills are white no more.

- George Arthur Green - "Springtime"

Wedding Dreams This dreamy wedding editorial was created for a group of highly talented photographers at a special workshop held in Vail, Colorado at the Sonnealp Lodge.



The design concept was built around the essence of "winter melting into spring" with elegant European touches. Our color palette combined buttercream, apricot, and blush hues with bright pops of yellow inspired from a classic cocktail, the French 75. To create some drama and an unexpected twist with the table design, the florals were elevated high above the candle tapers, and a lush overspilling mini garden of florals below.

We brought in our French Limoges tableware to complete the European story using our Emma L'Adore dishes, modern gold Skandia flatware, honey gold stemware, and our Juliette crystal coupe collection for a champagne tower. Amoureux du Printemps! (In Love with Spring)

Daydreams

Painting with Tulle | Thomas Jackson

"On every shoot, Northern California's offshore breezes were my collaborator, the force that transformed my installations from lifeless fabric to living things. As collaborations go it was a tumultuous one...

Of the twenty or so pieces I built and photographed last year, thirteen were failures, but along the way, I learned a thing or two about the importance of staying on nature's good side. When I built pieces that obstructed or defied the wind in any way, I'd go home unhappy, but when my constructions respected and responded to the wind, interesting things would occur!"

In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours.

In all the world, there is no love for you like mine. - Maya Angelou

What does it mean to be loved? Is love a feeling, an action, a commitment, or an emotion? In the Greek language, there are multiple meanings and words that describe love: eros (romantic love), philia (brotherly love, storge (parental-family love), agape (selfless love), ludus (playful love), pragma (mature love), and philautia (self-love). For February, we have some thoughtful features on these different forms of love and thought you might love them too!

Eros Love | Romantic Wedding

This dreamy wedding scene featured at Devils Thumb Ranch combines soft and neutral tones in a variety of subtle colors from blush to warm grey-blue. The bride wore a strappy romantic wedding dress in creamy white, and the groom wore a light cream-blush suit to compliment her. We loved how these colors brought in the beauty of the surrounding landscape. These same tones are displayed within the reception table linens, florals, and tableware. To soften up the Timberhouse room, hide rugs, fur throws, and velvet pillows were placed in lieu of chair pads to add warmth to the dining table and thoughtful touches to the outdoor lounge. The tall floral statement piece is a combination of dried floral and fluffy floral blooms. Each stem was carefully selected for texture and tone to marry the overall look to perfection. For each place setting, we used the following items from our rental collection: Ora Hand Glazed Plate, Skandia Matte Gold Flatware, Rosa Wine & Water Glasses, Julius Mirror Glazed B&B Plate, Emma Ecru & Gold Bowl, Maxwell Gold Etched Coupe, and Blush Twist Coupe Glass. We hope you love the combination as much as we do.

Agape Love | Harriet

I recently watched the movie "Harriet", the story of heroic abolitionist Harriet Tubman. The screenplay shares her escape from slavery and the dangerous missions she led to liberate hundreds

of slaves through the Underground Railroad. The role of Harriet is played by Cynthia Ervio, nominated for best actress in 2020. I believe to appreciate the hardships of others, we must be able to see ourselves in their shoes and wonder, how would I respond? I highly recommend you watch this movie. It's very compelling on so many levels and a perfect example of Agape Love.


Directed by Kasi Lemmons | Nominations - Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role | Producers - Gregory Allen Howard, Debra Martin Chase, Daniela Taplin Lundberg | Screenplay by Kasi Lemmons, Gregory Allen Howard

Philia Love | Border Wall Seesaw

I love this expression of creativity and community wrapped in this very clever art installation. Can you imagine the conversations that took place between the bars that were meant to create division?
