PUBLISHED! Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine

PUBLISHED!

A year ago I was invited to join the coveted Grace Ormonde Platinum List as the only photographer to represent Colorado, an honor I was thrilled to be a part of. Over the last year I have met and worked with so many wonderful and like-minded vendors.

This winter Isabelle Kline of Isabelle Kline Design and I began putting together a styled shoot inspired by abalone pearl, mixed metals, and luxurious textures. I have to say, the creative mind of Isabelle Kline is a beautiful thing. Our vision came together seamlessly. The florals were spectacular! There were more white orchids than I could count. I could have photographed the table top for days!

Isabelle and I found out early this summer that our shoot had been accepted for print publication. I was so excited as I returned from vacation this week to see a box of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazines at my front door, and our work featured in the Table Top section. I could not be more excited to see Colorado vendors featured in this luxury fashion wedding magazine. My mission to bring an East Coast couture and fashion-forward design to Colorado is underway!!

And, or course, a big thank you to The Broadmoor  for the stunning background! If you look closely, one of the resident swans made an appearance!

Grace Ormonde | Matthew Christopher Couture Wedding Gowns

Matthew Christopher at Little White Dress

I jumped at the opportunity to be at Little White Dress last Friday morning as wedding gown designer Matthew Christopher conducted a training session for the sales staff and prepared for the weekend’s trunk show. These last few months have been about partnering with Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine to show the world that Colorado not only has style, but is on the cutting edge of what is happening in the wedding industry.

To hear that a prominent dress designer would be spending time in Denver was an exciting opportunity. I more than anything wanted to hear Matthew speak about his work. I love hearing designer’s passion for their work, and Matthew Christopher does not disappoint!
If you are someone who (or know of a person) that cannot understand why you would pay a premium for a dress when there are perfectly suitable and affordable options out there, listen to Matthew speak about creating his dresses. His passion for making a woman feel beautiful is contagious. As if he didn’t have me at helping a woman feel beautiful on her wedding day, then he starts talking about the detailing of his dresses and how button location or stitching or lace placement can make or break the look of the dress. The designer in me was in the land of sunshine and happy faces!
I think the wedding industry in Colorado has a unique opportunity to utilize the platform of Grace Ormonde to show that we not only have style, but are attracting attention from the best in the industry.
“I think LWD has become a huge destination store for Colorado where girls come from all over from the midwest to visit their store. They are pulling in many many brides that are looking for couture gowns that they can not find in their state. ” – Matthew Christopher

Design After Dark 2014

Design After Dark 2014

A night of celebrating art and design…I love it! One of my favorite events of the year. Design After Dark is the primary fund raising event supporting the Design Council of the Denver Art Museum’s department of architecture and design. This year was the 10 year anniversary, and featured larger objects from popular local artists. Every year amazes me. Almost 900 people show up to support the Design Council and the level of artistry and creativity is phenomenal.

Here are a few of my favorites…
