Destination Nuptials: The Rockies

Getting married surrounded by some of the best American scenery is only a part of what makes a wedding memorable. Saying 'I do' with the Rockies in plain sight is just downright epic. For Luke and Bre, they wanted something sophisticated, yet relaxed. Tuxedos in summertime, at this altitude was both beautiful and practical.
The rustic granola vibe mixed with shades of black and luxe attire gives you an idea of how you can create the same look and feel for your wedding. Not quite a barn, but certainly not a traditional convention space, the couple used a rustic meeting hall to outfit it with fabric swag and chandeliers. Take a look!
Im actually a Colorado native. It's great out here. Always so beautiful. Perfect place for a destination wedding.
Colorado Springs @daniachicago. Hilly where Im at here, but not mountainous. The Broadmoor is luxury @nixonwoman. If you come we can lounge at one of the bars. Have you been there before? It'd make for a great wedding venue.
This reminds me that I need to get away for a vacay. The Broadmoor is just the thing I need!
Where in Colorado are you? I've never been before @darcysdiary

How-To: Boho Braided Half Crown
The Beauty Department just published this super cute hair tutorial that I had to share with my gals and my brides on Vingle! As you can see, it's super easy and straight forward in the instructions. Try this out and let me know what you think! 1. Wave hair. 2. Gather and section off the top half of your hair (temple to temple) 3. Roll and clip this section up and away. 4. Next section off one inch sections on your right and left side from your hairline, near your temple (this is the area slightly above your ear). Braid this section vertically down. 5. Backcomb the braid instead of tying it off. Repeat on both sides. 6. Bring braids forward towards the face and unclip the top section of hair (step 3). Allow this section to fall and blend with the bottom half of your hair. 7. Take both braids from each side. 8. Bring these braids to the middle back of your head, cross them over each other. 9. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 10. Now make one inch sections below your first set of braids on each side. Repeat the first set of braids we did (Follow steps 4 and 5 ). Make sure the braid is directly under your last braids. 11. Once both sides are braided bring hair around to the middle back of your head and cross them over each other. 12. Using a bobby pin that blends with your hair color, fasten both braids. 13. Once everything is fastened adjust your curls on the bottom half and style using a texture spray. 14. Finish off waves and look with a weightless protectant. 15. Make any further styling adjustments to your look. and Enjoy an easy DIY half up boho braided up-do. Photo & Post by Carachele Tyvan
