Winter weddings are becoming more popular and there are plenty of benefits of planning your special day during the “off season”. Your dream venue may not be available during peak season. If you wait until the weather gets a bit cooler, you may just be able to score your dream venue, at a fraction of the cost. Planning last minute or maybe forgot to book one of your vendors? Winter weddings offer the luxury of your preferred vendors having last minute availability!
Anna emailed us about 3 weeks before her January wedding and I was thrilled to say we were available for her Cincinnati wedding. Knowing exactly what she wanted for hair and makeup and trusting her beauty team, she was confident in moving forward without a trial. We were so excited when we go the gorgeous photos from Adam and Keli Photography. They were able to capture stunning shots of hair and makeup and the vintage/glam style that Anna was going for!

Rollers & Rouge has officially begun our 2nd year working in Colorado! It’s amazing how fast the time has gone and how much we’ve grown! We couldn’t have had this amazing success without a fabulous team and our amazing brides! Last year around this time I got a call from a Kentucky area code on a Sunday evening. I had spent the day snowboarding and was exhausted, but decided to take the call since I was from Kentucky and was expecting a family member or old friend on the other end. Hallie and her fiance’ both love the snow and mountains as much as I do and we connected instantly. I couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of her Keystone Wedding! After 6 grueling months of waiting for photos, I was finally able to get my hands on these gorgeous shots! Photo credit goes to the amazingly talented Cassie Madden!
A few months ago we got an email from one of our wedding planners in the Denver area asking us to be a part of a styled shoot! Styled shoots can be as much fun as they are stressful. Often times we are working with vendors we haven’t met, creating a vision that is not our own. With the right direction, these shoots come together beautifully, which is what happened with this Fire & Ice themed shoot! Thanks so much to all of the fabulous team that worked so hard to make this happen!

Alexis reached out to R & R in April of this year to inquire about hair and makeup for her September 2018 wedding, Needless to say, she was a little ahead of the game with booking her vendors so early. Planning wedding is a lot of work (DUH)! Doing it from another state is just an added challenge, so securing vendors early, before they get booked or prices increase was a smart move by this gorgeous girl!
So how does one schedule a trial run while living in another state? EASY! Of course you’re going to have hair and makeup done for engagement photos when you come in to meet your photographer and visit your venue…FOR THE FIRST TIME!!! Alexis and her fiance landed in Denver around 2:30 and came directly to her trial and then went directly to her engagement photos. I don’t even want to imagine how busy the rest of her weekend was. Regardless, these awesome photos from http://bfunkphotography.com/ show off Alexis’s positive and infectious energy, not to mention the love that this couple obviously has for each other. Oh, and yeah, Colorado just continues to show off in the background!
I’m really looking forward to next September and heading into Estes Park for this wedding. The fall colors will be almost as stunning as Alexis on her wedding day!
As we’ve planted roots in Ohio and Colorado and happily met brides all over both states, we are happy to get settled in with a more permanent, beautiful meeting space in Denver! This really doesn’t change much of our Ohio brides. Cincinnati is a lot smaller and less traffic makes it easier for our stylists and brides to meet for trials. Denver, is another story. (Insert eye roll because of terrible traffic here) For the last year and a half, we’ve met with brides in their homes, or their hairstylist/makeup artist’s homes. While we will still gladly offer this, we also have a BEAUTIFUL new space in the Arts District off Santa Fe. It’s pretty central and parking is pretty easy, (BONUS!) making it ideal for trials to take place here. We just wanted to take a moment to spotlight StudioWed and let you know how excited we are to be a part of this space and great group of wedding vendors! So, read on, oogle the beautiful photos and then let us know when you want to set up a trial or meeting to discuss your wedding!
Located in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District in Denver, StudioWed is a home for wedding and creative industry professionals. Our studio gives entrepreneurs access to stylish shared work and meeting spaces as well as opportunities for connection, learning and collaborating with other creative professionals. StudioWed has four locations across the US, including Denver, CO, Asheville, NC, Atlanta, GA and Nashville, TN.
When we walked into the Flying Horse Ranch, our minds were blown! As we waited for the bridal party to arrive, Sara, the “Day of Coordinator” for Flying Horse, was kind enough to give us a tour and a little background information. This former residence, turned venue, is stunning! Incredible lighting, amazing vaulted ceilings, and a bridal suite made of dreams!
Beau Blackburn, of Blue Spruce Photography did a fantastic job capturing the details and love that was put into Chelsea’s wedding!

Every now and then we get a bride with a different vision. They want to create a wedding that stands out, that breaks a few rules, that surprises their guests! Last year we got to create looks for an Alice in Wonderland, as well as a steampunk inspired wedding.
Leanna’s vision, without putting a specific name to it, was magical! With much thanks to Beautiful Memories Event Planning, Leanna created a wooded, fairytale, dream wedding, leaving no detail untouched.
Autumn created a fun, fauxhawk inspired style for Leanna, wile Katie gave the bride, classic, simple and flattering makeup. Thanks to Hannah Hahn Photography for capturing Leanna’s stunning wedding day and sharing the photos with us!
