A Pretty Mountain Wedding

Last winter I was commissioned to do flowers for our friends Tim and Katie's mountain wedding. They are such a cool, easy going couple, I knew it would be a fun and casual affair - and indeed it was. Katie's aunt has an incredible acreage in Estes Park, so the setting was rustic and lovely. We wanted the flowers to look organic and kind of like they had been picked from a field, so I employed sunflowers, blue cornflower, delphinium, golden rod, mini daises and some textural greens. The couple met on a plane so they tied adorable paper airplanes in bright patterns to the umbrellas. 

After the ceremony and brunch, everyone was invited to stick around and play yard games like ladder ball, corn hole and bocce ball. My friend Kendra and I distroyed Ike and Kendra's friend Becky at ladder ball. I love beating my husband at anything really. In general, He's better at games than I am. Aren't the painted signs cute? 

The diversion of arranging flowers and celebrating with friends was a welcome one in the midst of moving/remodel chaos. Hooray for love on a plane!
