Bijal & Amit | Denver Wedding

Denver Wedding

We had the honor of working with Bijal and Amit for over a year to create a one of a kind Denver wedding for their friends and family. Along the way we learned more about the amazing Indian culture and we feel in love with their heart, soul and traditions. Our froom ar

We wanted the ceremony to feel like a sunrise and implemented a beautiful ombre color scheme for the Mandaap. The reception chairs well elegantly displayed in royal gold. The florals were our favorite touch. It is traditional for a groom to arrive via elephant in Indian wedding, We didn't have one elephant, we had six! Made out of flowers that is! We loved this sweet and unique personal touch. 

After the ceremony guests enjoyed lunch from an array of food trucks in the outside pavilion and then returned to their hotel to change for the reception that evening. While guests were freshening up, we set to work transforming the ballroom into a midnight ball. Deep blues find the space as we projected an amazing gobo on soft drape, complete with a moon. Guests danced the night away and the grand finale was 20 pounds of confetti pouring form the ceiling. 

This wedding was definitely one for the books! 

We are in awe of the images that Jared Captured of this wedding

Bijal & Amit | Garba and Mehendi

We had the absolute honor of spending three days with Bijal, Amit and their families. The ceremonies that we had the pleasure of witnessing are steeped in tradition. The colors, music, dance and joy spilled through every aspect of their wedding weekend. 

One of the most important pre-wedding ceremonies in Indian marriages is the mehendi ki raat. The beautiful bride-to-be adorns her hands and feet with striking designs made out of henna. As per the traditions, even the groom applies a bit of mehendi on his hands as well as feet. The entire ceremony is a fun-filled event with every family member and close friends of the bride and the groom being a part of it. But, apart from being a fun pre-wedding ritual, the mehendi ceremony also has a deep-rooted cultural significance to it.

Mehendi represents the bond of matrimony and is therefore, considered a shagun (sign of good luck). It signifies the love and affection between the couple and their families.

Here are some popular beliefs that are associated with this tradition:

·       The darkness of the mehendi colour on a bride’s hand represents the deep love between the would-be-couple.

·       The mehendi's colour also shows the love and understanding between the bride and her mother-in-law.

·       The longer the mehendi retains its colour, the more auspicious it is for the newlyweds.

·       Mehendi is also deemed to be a symbolic representation of fertility.


A Garba is typically held a day or two before the wedding. This event is a colorful and fun-filled party, usually involving dancing "Garba", a traditional dance of Gujarat, India. Garba is performed in a circle and the steps are often complicated.

Ali & Tony | Devil's Thumb Ranch Wedding

Ali & Tony love spending time outdoors, so naturally they wanted to say their vows in a beautiful setting tucked away in the mountains. Devil's Thumb Ranch was the perfect venue for these two! When the wedding day arrived ( the last week in May) the weather was gorgeous at the rehearsal and everyone was excited for the next day. Then as only Colorado can do, the weather changed drastically. By the time Ali & Tony were set to say their I Do's there was a full on blizzard happening at their ceremony site. We kicked it into high gear and turned our reception site into the ceremony site. They bride said it best "Plan B turned out to be way better than Plan A."  They got married in front a gorgeous stone fireplace and enjoyed cocktails in a cozy loft while the room was flipped. Throughout the whole process Ali & Tony were a dream to work with, they have such an amazing sense of humor and love for each other. We wish them a life time of adventure!

Ken & Dave | Urban Denver Wedding

When we first met with Ken and Dave they had a clear vision of the era they wanted to channel for their wedding day. We highlighted the best of 1950's mid-mid style for their wedding reception at Michael Warren Contempory Gallery in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts district. We love the clean color palette and straight lines that were so prominent in this era. The highlight of the decor was a beautiful custom made bar paired with gorgeous gold bar stools. A stunning lounge anchored by a luscious blue velvet couch allowed guest to mingle in style. We also gave a nod to the era through the delicious food including deviled eggs, chicken and biscuits and shrimp shooters!

Holly & Matt | Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding

Working with Holly and Matt to design their beautiful Devils Thumb Ranch Wedding was an absolutely pleasure. I rarely meet a couple that is so focused on creating a successful marriage following the wedding day, they often spoke of how important their faith is in their everyday life. Because of this we decided to line the ceremony aisle with each other life verses. Holly and Matt’s love for skiing was the perfect inspiration for the overall design, including the use of vintage ski postcards, table names and vintage ski guest book. They compliment each other so perfectly and care so genuinely about everyone in their lives, so much so, that they wrote hand written thank you notes to every guests which served as their escort cards. It was such an honor to help plan this beautiful day. We wish Holly and Matt a lifetime of love, laughter and travel!

Co & John | Devils Thumb Ranch

Co & John planned an amazing weekend for their friends and family packed with horseback riding, scavenger hunts, volleyball games, pool time all capped off with a beautiful wedding. Their beloveddog carried their rings down the aisle and stole the show with the ring bearer and flower girl!  Ever since Co was little she always wanted to eat dessert first on her wedding day, so we decided to have their cake cutting as part of their ceremony! I am not sure why we hadn't thought of this before but we will definitely be doing it again. Instead of toasting with champagne guests we asked to toast with the most delicious truffles.  Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner followed by a night full of dancing. It was a joy to work with Co & John, we wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter and dessert.

Megan & Bryan | Boulder Wedding

Megan and Bryan met while attend the University of Colorado, so it was only natural for them to get married back in Boulder. Rembrandt Yard was the perfect light-filled location for these two to say their vows. Megan's mom spent months creating 1000 paper cranes as a symbol of lucky, commitment and fertility, which served as a stunning backdrop for both the ceremony and reception.Their bright color palette was such a breath of fresh air for our fall season. CU's campus was scattered in leaves and set the scene for the perfect first look photographs. 

We are thrilled to see this wedding featured on Borrowed and Blue

Ashley & Mike | Estes Park Wedding

Ashley & Mike have an amazing relationship filled with love, laughter and adventure, their mountain wedding celebrated just that.  The first thing that I noticed when I met Ashley and Mike was the way that Mike looked at Ashley and the way that Ashley's face lite up when she saw Mike. Their energy and mile-wide smiles are absolutely contagious. The style of the wedding revolved around highlighting the beautiful mountain backdrop that Estes Park has to offer. Guests were welcomed by the bride and groom with hand selected Colorado brews, a map of the couples favorite hikes and a few tasty local treats. The ceremony took place at Black Canyon Inn with stunning views of the mountains.   Guestsmoved the celebration to Twin Owls Steakhouse where they enjoyed fabulous food and awesome live music from Absolute Romance, a local A cappella group, and Aria Gray.  The florals were to die for, huge peonies and garden roses filled the tables and brought a soft romantic touch to the rustic space. After dinner guests enjoyed a variety of donuts from Voodoo Donuts.  It was such a pleasure to help bring Ashley and Mike’s vision to life. Spending the day with their friends and family was so much fun. We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter and donuts!

4th of July Styled Shoot

We had so much fun putting together a sparkling 4th of July styled Shoot for Novelty Bride Magazine.   We wanted to represent the patriotic colors in a unique and glam way!  

When we think of 4th of July we thinking of time with family, red, white and blue and of course fireworks. We don't often has the opportunity to plan a beach wedding in Colorado, The Lake House at Cherry Creek gave us the opportunity to do just that. 

We fell in love with this amazing Hayley Paige gown from Anna Be and the rest of the details slide right into place. The Jewlery provided by Mark's Diamonds elevated the entire look. We used lots of texture, metallic and sparkle to create a romantic and cozy reception site. 

We will let the amazing images  from Decorus Fine Art Photography speak for themselves!

4th of July Celebration

We Love any excuse to gather friends and family around and celebrate. There is something so awesome about centering that celebration around fireworks! Here are a few fun design and decor tips from a 4th of July rehearsal dinner we had the honor of planning.

1. Spend the day at the baseball field! What is more American then an old fashion baseball game, peanuts and a cold beer. 

2. Make fun food labels  and decor out of iconic American items like a baseball. 

3. Don't forget something fun for the kids to do during the game. We loved putting together this fun bag with coloring books and stickers. 

4. Don't forget a warm blanket to share once fireworks start.

Putting the Art in Party!

When I set out to plan my daughters birthday, I knew I wanted something that would be fun for all of the kids with a fun fun design details. I asked Emma what she would want and she quickly said an “art party”! I set off to create a beautiful and fun joint birthday party for my two girls

Being an event planner for a living allows me to create beautiful events for other people, but this was the first time I could be my own client!  I knew I wanted something fun and interactive for the kids. I came up with the idea to cut and paint old refrigerator boxes into life size easels for the kids. The creation station featured paint pens, markers, artists wipes,(wet wipes) and bubbles. I put all natural food coloring in bubbles and when the kids blew the bubbles onto the canvas they popped and created art. Each child had a canvas with their name on it and had a blast creating their own masterpiece. To create a dramatic backdrop (and protect our fence!) I ordered plastic tablecloths that I hung so they appeared to be pouring out of paint cans, I designed the stickers for the paint cans to match the balloons, streamers, and tablecloths.

After creating masterpieces of their own the kids found their cookie placecards and went to work decorating their own cupcakes. One long table featured brightly colored flowers, aprons and cupcakes for each kiddo. I made the easels that held the cookies out of colored popsicle sticks.

Cake is probably my favorite part of any celebration and I have definitely passed that love on to my girls. Emma’s cake was a painting of curious George, which happens to be her favorite book, accompanied by a paint can made of cake and her sisters 1 year smash cake was a painters palate. Yes the yellow Curious George “picture”, paint can an palette are all 100% cake!! 

The moment Emma walked into the backyard and started pointing out every little detail, I knew this would be a party both of us would never forget.  We are FOREVER grateful to our dear friends Rachael and Gina for helping us bring our vision to life!

Laura + Joey | Beaver Creek Wedding

Typically our clients reach out to us when it comes to planning and designing a wedding, this time we reached out to find the perfect bride and groom for a unique opportunity! 

Who would have thought that we would have had over 50 couples apply to win a dream wedding. There was one small catch, the couple had to agree to be married 10 days after being notified that they won, oh and they had to trust the pro’s to design a beautiful day for them.  We found the perfect couple in Laura and Joey. Their endless love and sense of adventure is contagious. From the first call we had with them, notifying them that they had won to 12am the day after the wedding, they were 100% smiles and gratitude. We not only fell in love with Laura and Joey, but we also fell head over heels for their families. Every guest beamed with joy and wonderful words for the bride and groom.


The adventure began when guests arrived to Trappers via snowcat and the surprises kept on coming. Everyone was given a beautiful colorado welcome bag which was the perfect way to kick of the wedding festivities. We kept the décor warm, elegant and intimate. We incorporated a variety of mixed metals, natural textures and a lot of candlelight to create a romantic reception. The ceremony was the most picturesque sight to see. We highlighted the aspen grove, which happen to be Laura's favorite tree, and let the outdoors speak for themselves! The chef at Trappers cabin created a fantastic five star meal for the reception. 

Often times we plan large events with 100 plus attendees, this wedding was an wonderful reminder to keep the love in all of the details no matter the size of the event. Here is to an amazing life of love, laughter and adventure! We love you Laura & Joey!

We are forever grateful for the amazing team of outstanding professionals who made this unique wedding happen.
