When you’re working with Painted Primrose, I want you to have the most beautiful and seamless experience possible! Because of this, I have curated a list of preferred partners that I have worked with in the past. Vendors that are familiar with each other and each others’ work can make your day run like a well-oiled, beautiful machine! Additionally, all your vendors come together to make the mood of your day! I really value having a cohesive look, mood and team (read more about mood here) and I believe all of these vendors can help create your perfect Painted Primrose day.
For a lot of people, photography is one of the most important parts of their wedding day! And for good reason, those photos will last forever and will be the things you look back on long after your day! From my end, I believe photography is one of the more defining aspects of your day. Photography can (and will) change the look of your flowers and your lighting, all of which affects the mood of your day. I want your flowers to look as good in photos as they do in person and choosing the right photographer can be really important to that!
ML Photo and Film is a sister duo based out of Denver and Austin, but they have been known to travel all over the place for weddings! They can also be a one-stop shop if you prefer! They do both photography and videography. The sisters love to capture the sweet, quiet, in-between moments and the loud, laughter-filled big moments of your day. They focus on using natural light to create bright, airy and beautiful photos.

If you are bright, fun and vibrant Josie is your girl! She focuses on creating artistic portraits for the non-traditional couple. Breaking tradition and creating your own celebration is really her jam!

With a super cool, classic style, Caitlin Hamilton is a photographer for everyone! She uses a very clean palette, and believes in your unique day and your unique vibe! Capturing you and your love is so important to her. She also focuses on capturing the light, true to life colors of your day!
Many photographers offer photography and videography packages. However, many don’t! If yours doesn’t, finding the right videographer who matches the style of your photography can be difficult! I believe these videographers match the Painted Primrose style! Check out their websites for previews of their work.
If you are looking for a filmmaker who knows how to tell a story, Aflatis is your team!

Lisa and Alex focus on smaller, intimate elopements. They want your wedding adventure to be exactly what you want to make it, and nothing less. Maybe you want to go white water rafting with your family on Wednesday and then get married at a cliffside overlook on Thursday. Or perhaps you’d prefer to explore a cute little mountain town, and then hike to a remote mountaintop vista just the two of you. They’re down for all of it! Lisa and Alex also do both photography and videography for your day.
Storytelling is truly the foundation of Roots and Wings. Kailina believes roots represent stability and strength and they allow us to be able to stand strong during any storm life brings. And wings allow us to have creativity, appreciation, laughter, and freedom. She strives to capture all of those emotions and feelings in her films. Kailina wants to strengthen marriages through out the years by taking couples back to every emotion that filled their day and giving them an heirloom to leave for the generations that will follow.
I love working with bakeries to incorporate flowers onto your cake! There is seriously nothing more romantic or memorable than a cake all covered in flowers. Especially if it tastes good!

Wedding flowers can be a huge expense, and one you want to cherish for a long time! There are so many different options for floral preservation, both in the Denver area and outside of it! In your own home, you can choose to press your flowers, or hang them to dry. Or you can search Etsy for that perfect keepsake, or if you’re local, you can consult a local professional! There are options for everything from dried flowers, flowers cast in epoxy to watercolor recreations of your bouquet.
Wild Blossom is based out of Fort Collins, and they are also a florist, but they also offer floral preservation! After your day is over, and the people have gone, the memory can still last forever. At Wild Blossoms Studio, Elycia makes that memory tangible by turning pressed flowers into a one-of-a-kind art piece that complements your style. Alternatively, most arrangements can be worked into a beautiful dried wreath.
