Modern Rustic Aspen Wedding


This wedding mixed modern, rustic and glamorous textures and the results made for one stunning wedding day. The bride donned an intricately beaded Inbal Dror dress wore petite flowers pinned throughout her hair, and carried a stunning wild spring bouquet by Bare Root Florals.

This wedding was held at a private residence in Aspen with a stunning green valley and spring wildflowers in bloom. To create the ceremony space, we had a custom walkway as well as a modern arbor. Simple wild grasses lined the walkway and made it seem like it had always been there. After the ceremony guests enjoyed elegant lounge vignettes with a stunning view of the valley for cocktail hour. Dinner was held in a classic canvas tent and featured long tables alternately decorated with blush and white floral centerpieces and floral garlands mixed with taper candles. Ghost chairs and modern gray paper goods added an unexpectedly clean and modern element to the wedding design. You can see more of this wedding right here on Oncewed.

Aspen Wedding Cake Inspiration


Wedding cakes are always one of our favorite details. From delicate sugar flowers like this beautiful cake above, to fresh fruit, and traditional flowers, there truly are endless ways to personalize your wedding cake for your celebration.


This cake, dressed in layers of ruffled fondant, is finished with an intricate lace pattern inspired by the bride’s dress.


For a seaside themed photo shoot we dreamt up this dreamy gray cake with “salt” crystals. We love how modern and different this petite cake is.

flower-wall-wedding-inspirationTo highlight this fall wedding cake by D’elissious , the florist Lauryl Lane, created a rich floral wall to serve as the backdrop. The textures of the flowers make the silhouette of this simple white wedding cake stand out.

View More: things are better than fruit and buttercream, and this cake features both. We added in lavender and fern spears to add more texture to the cake design. We can’t wait to see (and taste) what this wedding season brings us!

Fall Wedding in Aspen

getting-married-at-lazy-t-ranch-aspenWe loved planning this stunning fall wedding which featured soft peach and pink tones, a handsome doggy ring bearer, a flowering path for the ceremony at T Lazy 7 meadow, and an elegant candlelit reception at the Hotel Jerome.


With a backdrop of changing fall leaves in the meadow at T Lazy 7, we worked with Cori Cook Floral to design this wedding which featured a flowering aisle and church pews. The bride wore a stunning Oscar de la Renta dress with a delicate lace caplet over an a-line, strapless, gown and the bridesmaid wore elegant long chiffon dresses from BHLDN. After the ceremony, guests moved to the Hotel Jerome for an elegant wedding reception featuring twinkling chandeliers, candelabras and florals in a rich fall palette.
