The Knot Rocks Denver 2016 at the Denver Botanic Garden

We love planning weddings, but when we have the chance to plan a party to celebrate with some of our absolute favorite people in the industry (as well as amazing vendors we’ve never met before!), we jump at the chance! When we were invited to plan The Knot’s annual market event in Denver, we couldn’t wait to round up the team and let the ideas start flowing. Continue reading

A Shimmering Blush and Gold Wedding at the Four Seasons Vail

There’s nothing more exciting than a couple that comes to us with a Big Idea. When we started working with Kedzie and Ed on their August 1, 2015 wedding at the Four Seasons in Vail, we knew we’d get along amazingly. Why? Because they wanted to walk down the aisle OVER the Four Seasons’ pool! Continue reading

2015: An Amazing Year in Review

A Refined Bohemian Bash at Timber Ridge

A Rustic Elegant Wedding at TenMile Station

When Kelsey and Mark came to me to plan their wedding, the first thing they told me was that they wanted to be married outdoors. They’ve visited Breckenridge countless times, and have such an appreciation for the mountains we’re nestled in, so we knew we needed to highlight how beautiful everything would be in late August. Continue reading

A Sunny September Wedding in Crested Butte

Planning Suzanne and Anthony’s wedding was a blast. They’re locals, but her family is from the Windy City, so they celebrated their mountain home and also threw a bash worthy of her city roots. It was a destination wedding the way a destination wedding should be: a weekend filled with lots of activities, amazing food, and great company, all capped off with a spectacularly sunny ceremony and an all-night party. Continue reading

A Mountain Ranch Winter Wedding

In my mind the mountain winter wedding is IT, but it’s not for everyone.  Blizzards, icy roads, vendors stuck in crazy weather, female guests wearing 6″ heels teetering on the outside paths, none of this necessarily sounds appealing. But to some, the … Continue reading

Everything that Sparkles is Gold

It’s the time of the season for love! Not only because it is spring, but it is also the beginning of wedding season! Spring has sprung on us! It feels like just yesterday it was snowing (actually it did here … Continue reading

A Wintery Four Seasons Wedding

Happy New Year, everyone!  I feel that 2014 is going to be something special.  Maybe it’s because my first day of 2014 was an epic powder day or maybe it’s because 4 is my lucky number or maybe it’s because … Continue reading

Carey and Taylor’s Keystone Ranch Wedding

Carey and Taylor have know each other since high school but it wasn’t until the end of college that Carey realized (Taylor knew all along) that they were meant to be married. Their love, their sweet families enthusiasm and the sorority sisters cheers made this a powerful event. Congratulations Carey and Taylor!

The Keystone Ranch is one of my favorite locations for a Colorado photo shoot. The old miners’ cabins and the meadow grass are just lovely.
