For the second year, I have worked alongside designer Mindi Linscombe, owner of Something New Boutique, one of Colorado's top wedding gown shops, to photograph her wedding gown designs for the magazine Colorado's Best Wedding Dresses. A FREE wedding planning guide showcasing Mindi's new collection of DIVINA wedding gowns exclusively sold at Something New Boutique in Colorado Springs. You can pick up your free copy at Mindi's shop.
The location I chose as the backdrop for our shoot this year is none other than Cherokee Ranch and Castle, a beautiful mansion on rolling acres of land dating back to the late 1800's. This location is also open to host wedding events and receptions. If you are looking for a rustic chic venue with stunning views and Colorado charm, Cherokee Ranch is it!
The DIVINA 2015 gowns are whimsical, elegant and of course glamorous. As one of Colorado's only wedding gown designers, Mindi is breaking new ground in the Colorado wedding industry and welcoming a talented and artful team to help bring the collection to life. The highly talented Ahndea May designed custom accessories to go with each gown. And Cory Reynolds with Contrast AV put together a beautiful film about the process and new line.
Most importantly, 10% of all profits from the DIVINA 2015 wedding collection go to Sak Saum, a rehabilitation program in Cambodia that seeks to restore girls rescued out of the sex trade by giving them an education and work skills. Visit Sak Saum for more info on how you can get involved.
If you are looking for a one of a kind gown designed by one of Colorado's very own, you must pay a visit to Mindi's beautiful boutique in Colorado Springs. The staff there is exceptionally kind, accommodating and helpful in finding the perfect wedding gown for you.
