When Laura Shackles of Blush and Bay Floral Design and Events submitted this wedding, photographed by Jill Houser, we were floored by its beauty. Denver is one of the most gorgeous backdrops for a wedding and this one was no different. From the prep at Brown Palace Hotel to the reception at Tivoli Turnhalle, this vintage glam wedding was one of architectural genius. Amanda says “I quickly found myself obsessively planning every detail of our big day. I had always envisioned a big wedding; a romantic, intimate, and memorable evening affair that was different from the rest. My vintage glam vision thrust me into a yearlong journey of planning each and every detail complete with PowerPoint presentations and Polaroid pictures! While I was busy planning, my mom and sister travelled across the entire Midwest collecting over 900 mis-matched plates, unique antique vases, candelabras, and much more to help my dream wedding become a reality. Their stunning collection heightened my enthusiasm to transform our wedding venue into what can only be described as my fantasy come to life: a vintage glam wonderland, a setting fit for us to seal our commitment to one another, and a place to celebrate that commitment with the ones we love. My vendors embraced my vision and worked with me through every tiny detail from start to finish. Through those partnerships, I have made lasting friendships and I am eternally grateful to those new friends for making our wedding so special. When our day came, it was honestly perfect. We were surrounded by all of the people that have impacted and shaped our lives: family, new and old friends, and one of Caleb’s most formative mentors, his high school history teacher, officiated our ceremony. Our wedding day was so special that I re-live a little bit everyday. It was the most amazing, loving, fun filled, and happy tears day!”
Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that made this wedding so gorgeous!!
