The invitation suite is a guest's first sneak peek at the wedding design. When designing a wedding, we purposefully pull various elements from the venue, centerpieces, and other creative elements into each piece of stationery.⁠ ⁠ The invitation suite for Maggie + Matthew's Aspen wedding mixed the feeling of organic and ethereal. It included the couple’s names hand-lettered with exaggerated glyphs that formed the shape of fruit and birds. The envelope liner was foiled onto textured, silver metallic paper with a pattern pulled from an altar mural. The shape of the die-cut detail cards was inspired by a motif that repeated across the walls of the church’s nave. The paper suite was accented with a soft mist color - the same color woven through the design in elements such as the bridesmaid gowns and custom chinoiserie murals adorning the reception.⁠ ⁠ Photography: @jessicablex⁠ Floral: @barerootflora⁠ Hand-lettering: @cheryldyercalligraphy

Maggie looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day. She wore the Jasmine bridal gown from Laudae and paired it with fun, fringed ankle strap heels.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Photography: @jessicablex⁠⠀ Bridal Gown: @laudaebridal and @aandbe_bridalshop⁠⠀ Shoes: @chaosandharmonyshoes

Designing Maggie + Matthew's wedding around the imagery of a "New Eden" included transforming the dining lodge at the top of The Little Nell in Aspen. We started with textured linen draping around the entire space. Custom lampshades painted with a chinoiserie pattern were hung around the existing light fixtures and accented with green vines to evoke the feeling of organic growth down the fixtures.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The tables were draped with linen in a mixture of light blue and celadon colors. The centerpieces were arranged to look like artful still-life paintings with lush floral centerpieces accented with bowls of fruit. The regal place settings featured gold and blush tones, and the scalloped shape of the dinner charger tied in the design motif from the invitation suite.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Photography: @jessicablex⁠⠀ Floral: @barerootflora⁠⠀ Draping: @littlemadevents⁠⠀ Venue: @thelittlenell

I wanted to write a personal recap of 2019 and share it with you all on January 1, but I wasn't ready. I needed more time to process and reflect. This past year has been filled with so much change and growth. 2019's theme for Lovestruck was JUST START. As someone who likes to take calculative and strategic action, I pushed myself to launch projects that weren't 100% polished to my standards, but I decided it was better to take action (with some hesitation and sweaty palms) then to wait for the perfect moment. And you know what? I lived to tell you what happened :) In 2019... - We said goodbye to our beautiful white brick office on Pacific Street. It was too small. The layout wasn't functional for us anymore, and most notably - it was almost impossible to move custom-built bars and installations up and down a glass staircase. Our 5 year lease expiration snuck up on us, and we didn't have a lot of time to figure out a solution, but my gut said it was time to design a new home for Lovestruck. So we moved EVERYTHING and worked out of my home closet as we completely renovated the new space (add in a slow permitting process and missed construction deadlines - try 3 months...). This all took place right as our 2019 wedding season kicked off. It was stressful. Our office space isn't perfectly designed (yet!), but we'll get there. - We launched Blueprint. We knew we had MORE to give our community, so we developed a new service that allows us to share our expertise with more Midwest couples. Soon after launch, we realized there was confusion about how Blueprint differed from Lovestruck. So we regrouped, moved Blueprint's services under Lovestruck so we could provide clear differentiation, and then I completely overhauled our website, all communication touch points, and implemented a CRM in 5 weeks. That was also exhausting, but those few months of uncertainty in Blueprint's infancy allowed us to learn the best way to fine tune our service offerings. - And now for a milestone that most of you don't know about...(continued in comments)

Guests at Maggie + Matthew's wedding were served signature drinks from a wooden bar wrapped with a hand-painted chinoiserie mural. They were offered passed canapés as they enjoyed the breathtaking view from the top of the mountain. We couldn't think of a better way to spend cocktail hour!⁠ ⁠ Photography: @jessicablex

We can't help but smile when we see these well-dressed llamas!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ At our bride, Maggie's, special request, we brought in llamas dapperly dressed in bow-ties and floral wreaths to provide a photo opportunity for guests during cocktail hour. Needless to say, this unique photo booth was a hit!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Photography: @jessicablex

These bridesmaids gowns from @joannaaugust were stunning against the Aspen mountain backdrop. The perfect mix of blue and mint, this Dream Weaver hue was woven through the whole wedding design. From the invitation suite to the custom chinoiserie murals, we incorporated this gorgeous color to create a cohesive look and feel throughout the entire celebration.⁠ ⁠ Photography: @jessicablex⁠ Bridesmaid Gowns: @readyorknot⁠ Bridesmaid Bouquets: @barerootflora
