Lush florals and luxe tablescapes were highlights of Jessica and Harry’s wedding at The Broadmoor. This Colorado Springs resort is one of our favorite Colorado wedding venues, so we were stoked to come back and coordinate this event. If you love classic weddings with a bit of sparkle, look no further for all the design inspiration you need!
Moving an Outdoor Ceremony Inside
Although Jessica and Harry envisioned an outdoor ceremony, Mother Nature had other plans. Fortunately, we had a solid Plan B! We abandoned Plan A several hours before the wedding, then set to work in, the Main Ballroom, one of The Broadmoor’s elegant ballrooms. Our team hustled to attain the couple’s vision so that the indoor setting resembled the outdoor design.
In the end, we were thrilled with the result—and so were Jessica and Harry! One of our top tips for couples planning an outdoor wedding is to know and love your Plan B. That way, you won't be disappointed no matter which way the wind blows!
In the completed design, the florals by Plum Sage were the magical element that brought the room to life. Organic arrangements of purple blooms lined either side of the aisle, reminiscent of a secret garden. Then, at the head of the room stood the couple’s round archway covered in ivory florals and greenery. The addition of gold Chiavari chairs elevated the sense of luxury, while the overall effect perfectly replicated the couple’s vision.
lake terrace Dining room Reception at The Broadmoor
With intricate crown molding and floor-to-ceiling windows, the Lakeside Terrace Dining Room at The Broadmoor invoked regal elegance for the couple’s reception. We arranged a mixture of long and round tables draped with ivory linens and circled them with gold chairs. Meanwhile, soft gold votives and ivory pillar candles filled the room with a flickering glow.
However, the floral arrangements were the most eye-catching of all! Vaulted ivory and blush florals added height to the tablescapes, while bud vases with purple flowers grounded the lush design. In addition, we worked with Plum Sage to style the room’s namesake, a tall stone fountain. We used ivory and purple florals repurposed from the couple’s ceremony to surround it for a garden-inspired effect.
We feel so honored that Jessica and Harry entrusted us with planning their wedding at The Broadmoor! Are you envisioning a wedding here or elsewhere in beautiful Colorado? We want to remove stress from the equation so you can enjoy your engagement and the wedding of your dreams. Give us a shout!
