True Romance 16

The Highlands Ranch Mansion Heats Up

Wedding Event Designer Joyce Goeppinger of La Vie le Gage doesn’t shy away from drama, and she didn’t disappoint with this French romance-inspired bridal shoot at the Highlands Ranch Mansion.

“I wanted to go large scale,” Goeppinger says. “French style is just stunning, whether simple or grandiose. So why not just go big? We’re dreaming, right?” Using the Mansion’s elegant rooms as a backdrop, she and the team created an indulgent feast for the senses in vivid shades of pinks, reds and golds. “Blending the color palette into floral harmony was my goal,” she says. Mission accomplished.
