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!
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.
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!

We are honored to work with many amazingly talented artists who bring beauty to our events everyday. We must say that Rachael Teufel's amazing reinvention of the geode in sugar takes the cake!
When we asked Rachael to create a cake that would be the centerpiece of our vignette, designed around the idea of joy, she was excited to see what we had planned. Once we decided to use the natural beauty of geodes in our design we knew that Rachael would bring the geode to life in cake. She did just that times 100!
“This cake took about 16 hands-on hours to create with several more hours of planning involved prior to making the cake,” Rachael of Intricate Icings.
The stunning “Joy” inspired vignette showcased a variety of geodes. It included rich textures, deep colors and lots of light letting the natural beauty and shape of geodes lead the design. Joy speaks of experiencing something that pleases the eye, warms your heart or soothes the soul.

How do you make a splash in the Denver Events scene? Plan an event centered around a unique inspiration, add a splash of fire, a hint of mystery, and pack the room with amazing professionals. That is just what we did for the launch of First Look Events and Moss Denver!
When we first set out to plan a styled shoot we knew that we wanted to use an unexpected inspiration for our designs. We settled on a common thread of Emotion to create one-of-a-kind vignettes to inspire the wedding and events industry. Our vignettes explore the idea that human emotions can inspire event design in a fresh way.
Taking the experience beyond the eyes alone…
Joy is the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying. Joy speaks of experiencing something that pleases the eye, warms your heart or soothes the soul.
We used mineral formations, clear acrylic, muted gold luster, mixed metals, unique geode specimens and polished marble to bring Joy to Life.
Prediction: Geodes are going to rock this season! The cake for this vignette created by, the incredibly talented Intricate Icings, went viral within 24 hours of this piece of art hitting the internet.
Passion is the single emotion that fuels one’s actions. It sets fire to our dreams and aspirations. A fire burns within all of our souls driving us to achieve greatness.
We used fire, movement, reflective linens, deep florals and the written word to bring Passion to life.
Prediction: Unique centerpieces will start to light-up the event scene.
Wonder makes us stand present in the moment while longing for more. It’s magical emotion that can bring immediate curiosity and amazement followed by serene peace. Wonder is what keeps our minds alive and free.
We used white marble, luxurious textured fabrics, hanging florals, water, grass hedges, glowing candlelight to bring Wonder to Life.
Prediction: The whimsical side of love will be on full display this season.
Additional Gratitude to the talented vendors who provided libations and food for our guests
