“I chose a ‘rustic minimalist' theme for my Colorado wedding at a sustainable farm called Lyons Farmette (the charm is beyond real). My style is quite classic and feminine, and I tend to keep things very simple with my nails, so I went for a timeless ivory manicure and pedicure. To complement the natural beauty of my venue, I chose a slim and strapless floral lace wedding dress. I wanted my nails to look clean and polished without taking away from anything else or drawing much attention. We stayed in downtown Boulder for the wedding weekend. I had my nails done at the very serene spa in the St Julien Hotel — I highly recommend it for a soothing treatment anytime, especially before a big day.” — Laura Lajiness Kaupke, freelance writer and editor
