We had the most incredible time working with Emily, Todd, and their families to plan this luxury wedding at the Ritz-Carlton in downtown Denver. From choosing the perfect venue, to creating the overall design, to multiple meetings with each event professional, we loved planning and designing this event.
The bride loves the color purple which we used in various shades along with silver and “bling” to create a luxurious atmosphere for this wedding. The ceremony and reception included white draping, uplights, pin-spot lighting, specialty linens, chair accents with sashes and rhinestone broaches, custom menu cards and table numbers, an incredible amount of gorgeous florals, and more. Guests enjoyed a delectable dinner followed by an evening of entertainment with both a band and a DJ.

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!

Thuy and Curtis had an amazing and elegant wedding in downtown Denver this past May! Their ceremony took place at Holy Ghost Church; and following the ceremony, guests were led to Kevin Taylor’s at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House to enjoy a five-star reception. The concept for the wedding was originally inspired by a bouquet of red roses, gold orchids, and a touch of ostrich feathers that that had caught the attention of the bride early in the planning stages. However, the bride and groom’s different backgrounds and cultures proved to be equally important to the overall personality of the day’s events, as the elements of Vietnamese and American tradition were brought together for a totally unique experience. Little touches such as the photo booth near the dance floor gave guests a chance to leave a lasting impression with the happy couple. Thank you to Patrick Edmiston for the beautiful photos!

The downtown Denver wedding of Dominique & Myles was completely put on by a great local organization, Wish Upon A Wedding.
Wish Upon A Wedding is a non profit organization dedicated to providing weddings and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illness or other serious life-altering circumstances, regardless of sexual orientation. Often, couples facing such situations do not have the energy, time, money, or resources needed to plan their wedding. Wish Upon A Wedding takes care of all the details, offering couples a chance to relax and enjoy a very special day while surrounded by the love of their closest family and friends. On March 12, 2011 Dominique & Myles were wed at the The Ritz-Carlton in downtown Denver.
“The future is unknown, it is a blur as it is not made yet. Everyday I worry about Myles being a single father, I worry that my kids will lose me sooner rather then later,” commented the bride. “Being able to have a wedding that is so long coming with out any of the financial stress or struggle to plan is a dream.”
“Dominique has always wanted the fairy tale wedding. Her dream before she dies is to be his wife. Financially we are unable to do this. We also never imagined that she would be taken from us at such a young age and that we’d not be able to have that wedding. It has become my mission to get her this dream. I want my sister to have her dream wedding, I want her to know the feeling of being in a wedding gown and feeling beautiful again,” pleaded Sheleane.
We had the honor of donating our wedding planning services to Dominique and Myles. They were a pleasure to work with along with the oustanding team of vendors who all worked tirelessly to make this wedding happen.
Congratulations to Dominique & Myles!
