Cloud Camp at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, surrounded by spectacular views and charming western flair, adds the perfect amount of red spice during this monochromatic red shoot. Milk Glass Productions dreamt up a shoot decked out with dramatic red elements to reflect the daring romance created by including red as the primary color on a wedding day. Adonye Jaja’s light and airy photography style juxtaposed with the fiery pops of red throughout the shoot highlight the romance of the day stunningly.

From the florals designed by Something Styled to the custom signage crafted by Hand Painted Weddings, no detail of red was left untouched. Each guest was invited to nosh on a custom mini cake created by the Broadmoor while enjoying an elegantly designed tablescape curated with rentals from Colorado Party Rentals and Eclectic Hive. The bride and groom’s dress and tux, designed by Samatha Sleeper and Sebastian Cruz Couture, stunningly white looks were brought together by the red floral detailing on the bride’s veil and matching red bow tie and pocket square of the groom. Red, used tastefully and thoughtfully throughout the shoot, elicits a deeper feeling of romance and passion to an already beautifully romantic wedding day.

ADVENTURE ENERGY OPTIMISM WARMTH

Orange brings warmth and energy to everything it touches. It’s the warmth of the late autumn sun on your face or a sunset that takes your breath away. Orange invites you in and reminds you of the comfortable familiarity you feel when you’re with the one you truly love. Adding touches of orange throughout your wedding day allows you to bask in the energy and optimism that the color brings.

Orange hues against a backdrop of lush green foliage at Beano’s Cabin at Beaver Creek Resort are the highlights of this styled shoot. Dreamt up and designed by Milk Glass Productions, the main element showcased through this shoot was the focus of Vietnamese culture. From the traditional silk lanterns to the bride and groom’s custom attire from AoDaiPhyongie and Áo Dài Chi Dau, the simple elegance of Vietnamese culture was brought to life.

Beano’s Cabin, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city, serves as the perfect moody backdrop for the breathtaking orange color palette of florals designed by Bustle & Bloom. The bride’s bouquet, luxurious with orange foliage and florals, and ceremony arch compliments the energy and adventure brought by the color orange during a wedding day designed with intentionality. Photographer, Autumn Cutaia captured the natural warmth of the beautifully designed arch and tablescape while also reflecting the eye-catching backdrop of Beaver Creek Mountain.

The tablescape echoes the idea of an intimate wedding day with only six table settings, all featuring an origami napkin fold and stunningly detailed geometric gold chairs from Colorado Party Rentals. House of Wilde, Milk Glass Production’s in-house lighting and custom fabrication company, built the natural wooden structure over the table to hang the silk lanterns and other hanging details. Designed with familiarity in mind, the styled reception tablescape is meant to encourage meaningful interaction and comfortability between the closest family and friends in attendance on the wedding day.

Yellow ENERGY JOY HAPPINESS POSITIVITY

Yellow is a direct reflection of joy. The color of sunshine, yellow, brings positive feelings. Positivity, happiness and hope are all within yellow’s domain. Yellow brings clarity and renewal. It’s the first sunny day after a long, dark winter. Yellow is the sunrise you look forward to after what seems like a never ending night. Energy and joy radiate through every painstakingly crafted element of a wedding day when yellow is involved.

T Lazy 7, a family-owned and operated ranch in the Maroon Creek Valley, served as the backdrop for this celestial yellow styled shoot. Milk Glass Productions created a dramatic, joy-filled shoot with pops of yellow against a lush backdrop of green in T Lazy 7’s meadow area. The venue, located just minutes away from the Maroon Bells, boasts some of the most spectacular views of the iconic peaks.

The stars of the show are the ethereal dresses sourced from Millia London and Ines Di Santo. The Yolanda by Millia London, a soft, hand-dyed tulle ruffle gown, reflects the joy and positivity created by the color yellow on a wedding day. It’s complemented beautifully by Paris by Ines Di Santo, the sweetheart ball gown with stunning detachable puff sleeves. This look is tied together with the feminine touch of a pearl headband. Both bridal looks bring femininity and exquisite elegance to the natural rustic charm of the venue.

Pale yellows and white hues add touches of yellow throughout the ceremony and rehearsal without being overwhelming. The flowers on the reception table, arranged by Statice Floral, add an air of cheer to the luscious greenery overflowing across the table. The modern geometric paper goods, handcrafted by Velvet Raptor, complement the natural elements and color palette. Dining on a bed of greenery amongst towering Aspen trees is pure heaven in the Rocky Mountains. While yellow is not a traditional wedding color, the combination of pale yellows and white hues reflect the positivity of the wedding day.

“White is too brilliant to be seen, so yellow is its filter, its costume, revealing that pure light has not only brightness but emotional resonance and depth.”

Green HARMONY RENEWAL GROWTH LUCK

Green is the color of serenity and renewal. It brings refreshment to the soul and nourishes the need for harmony in the day-to-day. In the Rocky Mountains, green is a color of abundance and running to nature is a way for us to find harmony amongst the towering emerald trees.

Green affects every area of our lives; from relationships to physical health, green only positively affects thinking and helps us see things in light of renewal. Incorporating green throughout a wedding day, whether that be in greenery or attire, cultivates an air of luck, harmony and peace for the wedding day.

India is a diverse country with many religions, so the interpretation of color can vary by region. Green typically symbolizes beginning and happiness. It is one of the five colors used during Holi, a popular Hindu festival celebrated as the Festival of Colours, Love and Spring, to wish for a happy new year. Milk Glass Productions created the vision for this styled green shoot at the Four Seasons Hotel Denver to represent the vitality, renewal and celebration associated with a wedding day. The bride’s traditional bridal lehenga in rich emerald green with golden accents complements the groom’s white and gold sherwani, both traditional wedding attire in India.

“Depending on the region, an Indian bride would wear either a bridal saree or a lehenga. We chose a bridal lehenga, which is an ankle-length skirt typically ornamented with embroidery and intricate designs and is paired with a coordinating blouse, called a choli, and a dupatta which is draped over the head and shoulders.

Brides are adorned with jewelry from head to toe. Bangles which are often gold, glass or diamond-stuffed symbolize luck, fertility, and safety. Henna, which is applied the day before the wedding, at a Mehndi ceremony, symbolizes beauty, joy, and spiritual awakening. Maang Tikka, a head piece that is typically coordinated to match the necklaces and earrings work, bestows the wearer with will and wisdom to embrace their marriage journey,” Tomi, Milk Glass Productions

The luscious overgrown look of the florals, designed by Inspired Designs, are thoughtfully placed throughout the ceremony arch and dinner tablescape. The ceremony arch is the perfect addition to be reused throughout the wedding day as an Instagram-worthy backdrop for guests to commemorate the wedding day. The greenery used throughout the shoot transports guests to a natural paradise in the downtown cityscape of Denver, thanks to the central downtown location of the Four Seasons Hotel Denver.

The tablescape, featuring butterfly china from Casa de Perrin, symbolizes rebirth, growth and new beginnings, which are all the most common themes of the color green. Emerald green glassware and gold candle holders contrast beautifully against the vibrant velvet green tablecloth from BBJ La Tavola. The cake, handcrafted by A Cake Come True, is the true star of the show for the reception scene. Its explosion of greenery with gold accents instantly draws the eye of guests to add to the luxury of the reception. The exquisiteness of the tablescape surrounded with lush greenery only reflects the precious sanctity of the wedding day.

Blue TRANQUILITY SERENITY DEPTH TIMELESS

Blue’s versatility as a color knows no bounds. From a brilliant blue sky to the bluest water in the deepest parts of the ocean, blue as a color surrounds us and invites in for a moment of tranquility. The color blue calls to mind feelings of calmness and relaxation. It often is seen as a sign of stability and reliability. Blue is what you surround yourself with as a way to think deeper and connect with your deepest sense of self. Incorporating blue into your wedding day is a way to ground yourself and find peace in the moments of the most important day of your life.

“House of Wilde and Colorado Party Rentals offered the perfect timeless and elegant pieces for this shoot. House of Wilde designed the bar, vignettes and the tablescape with simplicity in mind – we love how they threw in clean whites and pops of blue to shine a spotlight on the gorgeous backdrop, making you feel immersed in the surroundings.”

Milk Glass Productions’ plan for the design of the blue shoot came to life at the whimsical venue of historic Camp Hale. Dazzling hues of blue are set off against a backdrop of brilliant green grass at this blue themed color shoot. From the waterfall of blue flowers featured in the ceremony scene and tablescape to the soft blue features in the sitting area, no detail was left untouched with hints of blue. The bride and groom, a real life couple, radiated love through every aspect of this shoot and reflected the timeless elegance of the color blue on a wedding day. The bride’s “something blue” came to life in the embroidered flowers of her veil, sparkling blue jewelry and soft blue reception dress from Anthropologie. The groom’s soft blue suit complemented the simple elegance of the bride’s satin wedding dress from a&bé.

Ian V Santiago Photography captured the purity of the natural blue details with his classic photography style. Whimsy and timelessness were the two major themes Milk Glass Productions’ incorporated throughout the styled shoot. The cake, created by A Story of Flowers, featured whimsical white flowers set against a custom checkered bar with a classically beautiful bar menu. Every vendor, each included for their individual style, worked together to create a styled wedding day that reflects the depth and tranquility of the color blue.

Violet REGAL CALM

Purple: the known color of royalty. Purple accents on a wedding day are the epitome of luxury and romance. Purple is decadent and makes you feel as though you’re royalty even on the worst of days. Exotic and unique, purple elicits a powerful response as the traditional representation of nobility and royalty. It sparks imagination and enlightens those around it. Purple is a color to invite you in and encourage deeper thinking.

Dunbar Ranch, 160 acres of pristine landscape outside of Aspen, Colorado, with majestic views of the Continental Divide, served as the venue for the violet color shoot. Milk Glass Productions ran with the majesty of the ranch in the design of this styled shoot. Destination wedding photographer, Laura Murray Photography, captured the day in her traditional natural, organic and timeless style.

The florals, designed by Keep Floral, were nature forward and reflected the colors and textures of the venue. Their inclusion only aided in the soothing and calming nature of purple. From the bride’s bouquet of varying purple hued flowers to the overflowing purple ceremony aisle piece, the purple accents of the florals shone in creating a look of calm luxury during a wedding day.

The table settings, modern and clean in style, added a pop of color to the otherwise entirely lush green venue. The gold flatware and candle holders against the white floral tablecloth reflects the idea of quiet luxury brought about by the color purple. Milk Glass Productions turned a blank canvas into a rustic and intimate garden party with hints of purple strewn thoughtfully throughout the styled wedding day.
