Our Favorite Things | Colorado Ranch Weddings

SpruceMountainRanchWedding-5

In the western beauty that is the state of Colorado, we are lucky to have the stunning Rocky Mountains and the rolling fertile plains, and often the biggest, bluest skies you can find. Some of our favorite things are Colorado ranch weddings, where all of your guests can really appreciate and enjoy the scenery. Here are a few of our go-to venues for the Colorado Ranch Wedding:

The authentic and historic charm of Deer Creek Valley Ranch

Beaver Creek Wedding Planner | Park Hyatt Wedding

We really enjoyed working with this couple to design and plan their entire wedding in about seven months. They were such a great couple to work with!

We worked with the bride to find the perfect venue for their intimate Colorado wedding and settled on the 8100 Dining Room at the Park Hyatt in Beaver Creek for the reception. The Beaver Creek Wedding Deck was the perfect ceremony location although the weather did not cooperate on the wedding day so we used our back-up location in Spruce Saddle Lodge for the ceremony.

After a lovely cocktail hour and fabulous dinner from the Park Hyatt, guests enjoyed a delectable cake from Intricate Icings and a cookie bar with the couple’s favorite sweet treats. The stunning tables, lounge, linens, lighting, hanging candles, linens and gorgeous stationery created the perfect warm, simple and stunning atmosphere for the wedding reception. The decor fit exactly for the bride’s desire for a luxurious, warm, cleanly designed, romantic wedding.

We just love a glamorous city wedding. Jennifer and Tom’s wedding screamed old-Hollywood-glamour with a mix of modern flare. They choose an amazing location for their ceremony and reception: atop Denver’s historic Clocktower. Lush flowers filled each level of the space and deep-purple lighting gave the essence of drama and romance. The bride and groom couldn’t have looked happier, or more in love, and they were just gorgeous in front of the camera (check out the bride’s hat she wore for her exit at the end of the night!). They were a joy to work with and we wish you so much love!

Proposal Planner in Denver | Preston and Brittany are Engaged!

When we first got the call from Preston, we were excited to help plan a beautiful proposal! Preston had a vision of what he wanted for Brittany and told us, “I want this day to be as special as she is.” When we heard him say this, we knew that Brittany was a very lucky woman! Preston thought of everything, right down to scheduling a mani/pedi for her the morning of the proposal.  Preston told Brittany that they would be celebrating her birthday a few days late and that he had big plans. Little did she know…

A limo transported the happy couple to Mizuna for pre-selected appetizers and libations. The second stop was Fruition where the couple enjoyed a farm-to-table entrée. The couple then made their way to Crave Dessert for some tasty desserts but Brittany had no idea that the biggest surprise was still ahead. With the help of the AMAZING staff at Second Home, we transformed the restaurant into the perfect location for an intimate proposal. We created an aisle with 40 floating candles and rose petals that lead to a table with a stunning floral arrangement and champagne. The couple was so focused on each other that they didn’t notice photographer Jason hiding in the kitchen area or photographer Gina perched outside looking in through a window!

Brittany, we hope this evening was as special as you are and wish you both a lifetime of happiness. It was an honor to be part of this special night!

Birthday Party Planner in Denver | Surprise Birthday Party

We had such a fun time planning a surprise party for Lindsay’s 30th birthday! Her adorable hubby had a great time getting creative with the details of the event…wanting it to be truly unique! We combined a hip-hop violinist, an ice cream sundae bar with a rooftop deck in the summertime and the results were amazing!

Thanks to Plum Sage Flowers for the lush florals, Chair Covers & Linens for the beautiful silky linens, Shamane’s Bake Shoppe for her lovely cake and cupcakes, Maestro Hughes and DJ Shake One for the tunes all night and the excellent Bacaro Venetian Tavern for the amazing venue!

Special thanks to Chris from Premium Digital Solutions for the photos!
