Banks & Leaf  Amber Fairbanks + Gabby Greenleaf • Wedding planning and design company based in Colorado + Worldwide • Lovers of all things beautiful.

The entire Banks & Leaf family. Our support & comfort. Those little faces sometimes show up at vendor meetings or are the tiny voices you may hear in the background on a call. These men are who keep our family well taken care of while we are away on the weekends. When we started our planning company years ago, we didn’t think through the complexities of a partnership beyond the business. We didn’t foresee how much we would feel like a united family on this crazy journey together rather than just business partners. Maybe this is why valuing community and continuously showing love to our industry has become such a focus for us. When you already have an abundance of something, by nature you want to spread the wealth to those around you. And in love and support we are rich indeed.✨ #ourtribe #spreadthelove #banksandleaflove | thank you to @saracoronaphoto for capturing our little fam

Admittedly, we take for granted at times how truly lucky we are that we have locations like this for couples to choose from in Colorado. And then we get images back where they look like they are standing in a painting and we think, oh yes, this place is f’ing magical. ✨ Almost forgot. | @sarahknuthphotography @carolynsflowers @thelittlenell @salontullioaspen #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #coloradolife

Our favorite quote these days has been, “sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of”. This very much holds true for 2019. We strive to continue our mission of bringing people together and supporting beautiful dreams. Empowering women. Nourishing our relationships. And creating meaningful moments that become impactful memories.

Thank you thank you to @stylemepretty for featuring Lauren & Michael’s lovely wedding! The color palette and textures are so perfectly soft, delicate, & feminine that every time we try to write about it, comparisons to whipped cream covered confections or rolling around in cashmere on a romantic foggy morning keep coming out of our mouths and we. can’t. stop. So there you have it. 👍🏻 Link to see more in our profile!

Heading into the weekend like... Just kidding, we’re moms. If we don’t have meetings or a wedding, let’s be honest, we will be in our pjs playing legos with our boys, unshowered, and eating carbs. But we have our moments. Balance. #banksandleaflove #workingmama | @clancey

The best moment.

Since we see this very moment happen so often, we have learned how very special it is and never to miss it. The months (or years) of planning and logistics, designing and budgeting. It’s all really about this. Always filled with pure joy, a sense of calm yet excitement, and sheer relief. We love it when you can look at a picture and actually feel the love.
We are giddy waiting to see this sweet wedding featured on @stylemepretty this weekend! More to come! | @ashleysawtelle @premastyle @beanoscabin @viavictoria_ | #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #measureinlove #thatbouquetthough

They are so sweet, right? The wedding day is a start to so much adventure ahead and we are always feeling honored to witness the beginning of their new chapter. Now these two are expecting a sweet little BABY! As if you two couldn’t be any cuter, you just got even more adorable. All our love to @lauragiocomo & @pauljrizzo. You have one lucky little nugget. | @calliehobbsphotography @laceandlilies @lwdbridal @heidi_collinsbluth15 @annebarge @viavictoria_ @pineyriverranch #banksandleaflove #loveourjob #loveourclients

Who is ready to get back to simplicity? Remember our why.

This shoot reminds me of that notion. The concept was to focus on the moments leading up to the ceremony, in this case, an elopement. Waking up next to your love, making breakfast, getting ready knowing that very same day you would say your vows to each other. Everything is done at your pace. Exactly the way you want it. Completely your way and only about the two of you. We also love the shyness that exudes from this image. The flirty shyness that you still get after all these years.
How many times in life do you feel like you do things a certain way because of others expectations? Make 2019 the year to enrich your soul and do what you need to do to make that a reality. | #elevatedgatherings #simplicity #rememberyourwhy #banksandleaflove | @tarabieleckiphotography @viavictoria_ @bisou_beautyco @bhldn @matthewdefeo

What does the new year look like on paper? We are still working on our list of goals and desires but here’s what we know so far. It will involve beauty, love, kindness, creativity, and community. And flowers. Always flowers. | @wearemattandjess @yonder_house @aandbe_bridalshop @blackstoneriversranch #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #restoringoursouls

New Year’s Eve. It comes quicker every year, doesn’t it? Here’s another favorite moment of 2018 for us. When the cold weather and clouds come in quicker then we may have wanted in early October, but this is what it looks like. Completely dreamy & romantic. A ceremony high in the clouds. | ✨ @sarahknuthphotography @carolynsflowers @thelittlenell #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #magicalmoments

A few pieces from one of our favorite stationery suites, ever. Designed with a Portuguese tile inspired liner, cork wrap, wax magnolia seal, and tiles custom made to match the envelope liner that served as the guest escort cards. We love paper and how well it tells a story. Kudos to the magical @jolieandcompany for creating so much tangible beauty. | #banksandleaflove #elevatedgatherings #2018memories | @lauramurray @coricookfloraldesign @rockymountaintreasures Featured on @ruffledblog

Once the candles were lit and the menus placed, it quite literally took our breath away in this airy sailcloth tent. This was such a vibrant, warm, and inviting space filled with so much love, laughter, and an abundance of delicious food.
