What you see: a stunning, ethereal setting for a wedding reception. What this really is: a boathouse. @emilyclarkeevents and @bowsandarrowsflowers put their talent, aka "pure magic", together to transform this unconventional space into a jaw dropping dinner by the lake. ⠀

Pears and blackberries because why not? It's all about being original and creating something that is unique to you. Break the mold, forget tradition for the sake of tradition, because personalization is what it's all about these days. ⠀

One part florist, one part model, and two parts free spirit. Love this talented friend of mine. Thanks for being such a badass @premastyle and for owning the coolest apron ever.

As I walked into the studio, the delicate scent of gardenias overcame me and I knew it was going to be a good day. This shoot came at the end of my season and it was the perfect time to create and collaborate with @fluttermag @premastyle and @highcampgardenias. It was a day filled with inspiration and beauty. You can pick up the latest issue now. Head over to @fluttermag to grab your copy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Talk about making a grand entrance! This groom and his father/best man surprised all the guests by canoeing into the ceremony. ⠀

Spent this past week amongst incredible people who are not only some of the best and most talented in the industry, they are also genuine and warmhearted individuals. I was reminded of how fortunate I am to be a part of this amazing community; not only here in CO, but in the wedding industry as a whole. I am back home feeling inspired, motivated, and above all, beyond GRATEFUL! ⠀
