Kaylee & Nick's Wedding at Flying Diamond Ranch


Kaylee and Nick were married surrounded by the natural beauty of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, in Steamboat Springs. Their wedding took place at Flying Diamond Ranch, a peaceful venue nestled in the green valley of Steamboat amidst rolling hills and working ranch land.

Kaylee's guests enjoyed a week of hiking and outdoor activities with the bride and groom, including a rehearsal dinner at Catamount Ranch, overlooking the lake. These two wanted their wedding to be a reunion of family and friends, and for them to experience all of the beautiful elements that Colorado has to offer.

For Kaylee's wedding we focused on a bright summer palette of blush, pinks, coral, bright pops of yellow and ivory hues. We opted for a neutral base in selecting our plush linen seating arrangements and cheesecloth table runners, and brought in the bright pops of color through our floral design; which highlighted a large ceremony cross and floral aisle runners, lush centerpieces and a hanging centerpiece over the head table comprised of smilax greenery and large blooms.


Kaylee's custom stationery suite featured an iconic Colorado staple - the aspen tree - along with a custom map to give guests highlights of the surrounding area. Complete with a vellum wrap and rose gold wax sealed stamps, this suites was one of my absolute favorites!

The couple and guests enjoyed a family style meal with local ingredients like Colorado peach, Rocky Mountain trout and summer roasted vegetables. Guests sipped on signature cocktails like the "Mountain Mule" complete with edible flowers, and stared out into the beautiful views as they enjoyed the cigar bar on the groom's patio. They danced the night away to a live band and ended the evening showered in fresh flower petals as they left for their honeymoon. 

This wedding was such a joy to plan and design every step of the way with Kaylee and family!
