Planet Bluegrass Wedding | Riverside Romance

We are lucky to have the opportunity to work with so many amazing and creative clients, and this adorable couple is the crème de la crème! We have the entire story from our very own lead designer, Amber Fairbanks:

When I first met with the bride, Sami, I knew she would be an ideal client. Her excitement about stationery, flowers, and linens – as well as her openness to new ideas – is a wedding planner’s dream.

My original notes went something like this: “I want the wedding to feel ‘Colorado’ but not too much. I want it to be a little vintage without being a vintage wedding. I want it to be a little bit rustic, but not too rustic.”

This led us to Planet Bluegrass, the legendary venue in Lyons, Colorado, and the ideal canvas for such a wedding. The venue is situated next to the river with a sheer gray cliff edge and beautiful mountain views through a valley.

The ceremony took place next to the river with the couple framed underneath a striking wooden arch. The arch was wreathed in flowing garland and in the center, dangled a vintage chandelier wrapped in bright coral flowers.

For the design, we choose to do a mix of floral and solid creamy linens, wood chairs, and an eclectic mix of centerpieces that included mint-green and gold metallic vessels.

Vail Colorado Wedding

We had such a great time working with Ashley and Steven over the past year to plan their destination wedding in Vail, Colorado. We worked with Ashley to determine her design style was modern, elegant, colorful, and romantic with a touch of mountain rustic.

To set the tone in the Arrabelle ballroom, we draped the room with ivory satin draping and used amber uplighting to add a more romantic vibe to the room. To keep with the modern style, we sourced gold chevron linen to adorn all of the guest tables. These are some of our favorite linens ever! Place settings included gold beaded chargers with navy satin napkins. We alternated tall and short centerpieces to add dimension to the room design. Centerpieces were a variety of pinks, greens, and white blooms with a touch of rustic such as willow or a wood slice under the vase. We used gold chivari chairs to keep the room elegant and added pinspot lighting to show off the gorgeous centerpieces and the cake.

For dinner, guests enjoyed fabulous food stations including a gourmet pasta bar, a mini taco station, and a Colorado inspired carving station. We surprised guests with late night snacks including a donut bar with additional sweet treats such as rice krispie treats and gourmet cookies.

The ceremony was planned for the Vail Wedding Deck but with the rainy afternoon, we worked with Pink Monkey Solutions to quickly add draping and lighting to our backup location inside the Arrabelle. The girls at Plum Sage were amazing at using the ceremony florals inside to create a gorgeous setting for Ashley and Steven. Our officiant, Keith, was absolutely amazing. At least 30 guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever been too! Their wedding guests loved the band and kept the dance floor packed all night.

Thank you Ashley and Steven for being such a joy to work with. We wish you the absolute best wishes!

Denver Wedding Planner | Manor House Colorado Wedding

Chill, cool, music-loving, and lovable. All words that make us think of Kristin and Josh. The focus of this wedding was for guests to feel cozy while eating, drinking and being merry – all with a little southern Louisiana style!

The wedding took place at the historic Manor House in Littleton, Colorado. Kristin felt this venue brought the best of both worlds together — an old southern style mansion grounded in the middle of the gorgeous Colorado mountains.

The ceremony setting was soft and cozy, incorporating eclectic vintage white chairs for guests, fluffy ferns down the aisle, and soft white and pink flowers sprawling over the arch they stood under. The venue was filled with lanterns, vintage elements, soft florals, and cute signs with adorable quotes about love, family, and friendship –all made by the mother of the bride.

After a traditional New Orleans second line to start the dancing off right, guests enjoyed a rockin’ band, good food, and beautiful Colorado weather! We absolutely enjoyed working with this couple and were thrilled to see her visions come to life!

We had a great time working with Kimberly and Josh to plan their intimate destination wedding in Keystone, Colorado. From finding the right venue to creating the perfect warm, welcoming and cozy winter atmosphere, we loved sharing our ideas and resources to design and plan a perfect wedding day. The hanging vertical market lights and draping added the perfect touch to the reception room along with the gorgeous florals and candles which added to the warm atmosphere. The chocolate and scotch tasting bar was a huge hit as guests danced the night away.

Most of their guests traveled from Texas for the winter wedding celebration. Not only did they get to enjoy the day, most guests made a vacation out of the trip and enjoyed great skiing and dining in Keystone during their stay.

Kimberly and Josh, we wish you the absolute best wishes in your marriage!
