Last summer, I had the amazing opportunity to work with a couple who planned an absolutely gorgeous destination wedding in the mountains. Nick and Summer celebrated their love in mid-July with their closest friends and family (less than 20 people total!) and it was more of a wedding weekend than just a wedding day!
Although they lived out of state, we were able to plan their whole wedding over lots of emails and Facetime sessions. They grew up going to the same cabin every year and wanted to get married there! They even held a beautiful rehearsal dinner the night before with greenery and aspen chandeliers. The day of their wedding was warm and intimate, as they said their vows in the middle of a field — and they needed to take a ski chairlift to even get there!
The reception that followed was held at the top of the mountain, and everyone had a big brunch the next morning. We used a lot of foraged greenery and branches for their floral decor and used in-season flowers to bring in some color. It was one of my favorite weddings last summer and I had such a blast creating their wedding flowers! We used aspen branches, dahlias, lisianthus, maiden hair fern, yarrow, heuchera, astrantia, ranunculus, and scabiosa.

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”
-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
