Denver Botanic Gardens Solarium Wedding

A couple on their wedding day at Denver Botanic Gardens

In early May, Waystone was invited to bring jewelry to a styled wedding photoshoot at the Denver Botanic Gardens. It had been raining the entire previous day, so the team was all holding their breath that the weather would hold out for the shoot. While the ground was damp, the sunshine held and the previous day's rain brought all the plants in the garden to life for a jaw-dropping spring day.

The photos were taken at the solarium in the Woodland Mosaic garden within the Denver Botanic Gardens. The solarium was originally constructed for Euro Disney and was donated to the gardens in 2012 after sitting in a packing crate for nearly 20 years. The Victorian style structure is wrought-iron and powder coated in a soft green that complements the surrounding tall trees and meadow flowers of the garden. I mean, an absolutely perfect setting for a whimsical wedding.

The design of the solarium is so unique. When I saw the artwork that Amy of House Fourteen drew of the building for the invitations, I knew it would look stunning engraved in sterling silver. The silver holds every line of the detailed drawing, capturing forever each of the curls and curves of the Victorian structure. 

I love it so much that I added an option to our website to order a charm with your custom art, with the $47 fee to prep your art for engraving built-in. You can find it here.

In addition to providing a masculine signet ring wedding band inset with Rocky Mountain black granite, I designed a matching set of wedding jewelry to go with the sterling silver charm.

For the bridal jewelry, I included a pair of Confluence Earrings and a Lodestar Necklace. For the groomsman, a pair of Atlas Cufflinks. All were made out of one rock — a milky quartz that I collected from the front range of the Rocky Mountains. This rock is hard and takes a high polish with spots of cool white and shimmering translucent crystals. It beautifully matched the mauve and maroon colors used throughout the event.

Please enjoy some more photos from the day, and thank you to all the vendors who made this magical and whimsical wedding photo shoot a reality.
