Beaver Creek Wedding | Sarah and John


Sarah and John’s wedding happened on a bright and sunny August day in the adorable town of Beaver Creek, Colorado. The ceremony was held at the Beaver Creek Chapel, where sunlight streamed through the large stained-glass window as they gave their vows. The beautiful bouquets and flowers were all created by the talented Plum Sage Florist.

The cocktail hour and reception were held at a beautiful private home in the Mountain Star neighborhood of Avon, Colorado and guests were transported there in shuttles provided by All Mountain Transportation. The guests enjoyed the warm night under clean white tenting provided by Colorado Party Rentals and enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres and dinner buffet which were created by Vail Catering Concepts. The guests danced the night away with the great tunes from the Don Watson Band – they were awesome!

Special thanks to Pettit Photography for these amazing images! Kent was incredibly professional, highly experienced and genuinely interested in capturing the intimacies of the day.

Congratulations to Sarah and John!




Wedding Lighting 101



Lighting can have a dramatic effect on your wedding ceremony and reception. There are many options for adding lighting ambiance to your Colorado wedding ceremony and reception. Here are the basic types of lighting:

Pin spot – A focused beam of light that shines directly onto an object, like a centerpiece or wedding cake, as a highlight effect.

Color wash – There are a few different types of light fixtures that can create a “wash,” which is basically a blanket of colored light covering an entire area.

Gobos – Circular stencils that are put over a light to project a design or pattern. Popular gobo designs are monograms, dates, or any other wedding motifs. The complexity of the design will affect the gobo’s cost — a simple stencil can be stamped out of steel, while a more intricate design must be laser etched out of stainless steel or a glass that can withstand high heat (costing much more than a stamped stencil).

Led – {light-emitting diodes} LED lights are currently popular for weddings because they use much less electricity than regular, incandescent light bulbs. They can sometimes be wireless and very discreet. LEDs are great for color changes and vibrant colors. They’re also common in strands and good for accent lighting.

On Thursday, we will talk about Wedding Lighting Part Two. We’ll talk about choosing the correct lights and color for your Colorado wedding.

Breckenridge Wedding Planners | Christy & Gabe at Ten Mile Station




Christy and Gabe were such an amazing couple to work with. Even though the bride lived in two different states during the planning process, we made sure every detail was covered!

Their beautiful wedding couldn’t have had a better day in Breckenridge Colorado, where the sun was bright and the blue sky looked like it could go on forever.  The ceremony and reception were held at Ten Mile Station, a venue that we love at Save the Date Events. It is part ski lodge, part wedding site and is perfect for any mountain lover!

The lovely flowers were created by Petal and Bean, who also made an etched C&G base for her Wish Tree, and found Christy a perfect deep Merlot aisle runner. The ceremony music was provided by Sister’s Quartet, and the beautiful ceremony was given by Pastor Rasmussen. We loved the two flawless cakes that were baked by Intricate Icings as well.

Holly Canfield couldn’t have done a better job with the stationary items, they were amazing! The DJ provided by A Music Plus had the guests dancing all night!

Thank you so much to Robert from Fine Art Weddings for these gorgeous photographs!




Real Wedding in Winter Park | Ashley and Kyle







This incredibly amazing couple got married at Wild Horse Inn on 4th of July Weekend and what a crazy fun evening that was! The sweet wedding ceremony was held outside in the warm breezy weather, and then the party moved under a white tent decorated with lights and fabric. The beautiful flowers were designed by Pick Me! Floral Design and they did an incredible job.

The food was provided by Wild Horse Catering and was delicious. Guests were also treated to a dessert buffet created by Sweet Celebrations – SO delicious!

Ashley and Kyle had some serious dancers, I wish I could have the playlist from the reception. The tunes were provided by Mike from A Music Plus and it took super efforts to stop myself feet from dancing. At the end of the evening we opened the Scotch and Cigar Bar which was a huge hit with their wedding guests.

I loved planning with Ashley and Kyle for their Colorado wedding. They are incredibly genuine and had amazing families and friends.

Special thanks to the super team at Colorado Wedding Photograhers: Jason+Gina to a fabulous job!

Real Wedding Denver | Betina and Ken


It was a beautiful day in June when Betina and Ken got married at Boettcher Mansion in Golden, Colorado. It was a sunny and breezy day, with a short mountain burst of rain that did not stop this outside ceremony on the patio of the mansion. The wedding guests were all formally dressed at this black tie wedding, where the reception fare included a multiple course dinner experience catered by Footers Catering along with wine pairings specially chosen by the bride and groom. The beautiful flowers were created by Annie Aubert, and she did an amazing job!

The delicious cake was provided by Intricate Icings and was gone in a flash. The guests were dancing (including tango) to the tunes of Quality Mobile Sounds and the parents had some relief thanks to the helpful staff of Wedding Sitters by Charity. It was a beautiful evening, the bride looked lovely(thanks to Makeup by Janine) and it was a pleasure to work with this couple!

Special thanks to Julie and Chris from Sharber Photography for these amazing images.
