The Venue

Northstar Gatherings is nestled amidst the gorgeous landscapes of Idaho Springs, Colorado. A high-end mountain venue that provides an incredible space for weddings and lifetime memories. Recently, a group of talented vendors and photographers came together to bring to life an editorial, chic mountain vibe styled shoot at this exquisite location.

Unveiling the Vision

The team behind this styled shoot aimed to capture the essence of an editorial, stylish mountain wedding. Featuring a beautiful floral display from Flower Disco who created a growing aisle and orange-themed DREAM. The table scape featuring tangerines and stunning orange name tags.

The Talented Models: Our models for the shoot are married in real life. The chemistry between the couple added an authentic touch to the photographs, as they effortlessly portrayed the love and connection shared by a couple on their wedding day. Their genuine joy and laughter resonated throughout the shoot, elevating the overall experience and resulting in beautiful images.

Community and Collaborating

I absolutely loved collaborating and networking with fellow vendors located in Colorado. I had the opportunity of connecting with a multitude of talented photographers. From sharing creative ideas to collaborating on composition and lighting techniques, the collective effort was super inspiring. We all got to add incredible photos to our portfolio.

Furthermore, the shoot served as a platform for vendors in the area to showcase their skills and offerings. Ashley Taylor Photography gathered a team of talented florists, stylists, makeup artists, drinks and stationary. The vendor team brought together a harmonious blend of natural elements, sophisticated details, and impeccable styling, resulting in a cohesive and breathtaking aesthetic.

Northstar Gatherings was the perfect canvas for this styled shoot. This venue is only 40 minutes away from Denver, Colorado. Making it the perfect location for guests who still want to enjoy the city while attending your mountain wedding.
