2016: A Year in Review

2016 was quite a year in the Bella offices! With over 20 weddings and events over the course of the year, we were thrilled to spend our year celebrating so much love and such fabulous couples. From Keystone to Beaver Creek to Aspen, Colorado was our playground, and you can bet we had a blast bringing all of these amazing events to life! Here’s a little peek into what we were up to over the past 12 months. We can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store! Continue reading

Zulu Love Letter: A Styled Shoot in Breckenridge

This winter, our planner Samantha gathered together a fabulous team and created a shoot inspired by her childhood in Zimbabwe and how her past influences her understanding of love. Her Zulu Love Letter, based on the beaded messages Zulu maidens weave as they dream of romance, is a story of strength, softness, warmth, color, and organic elements that will change the way you look at the world around you.

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.

Because they wanted to walk down the aisle OVER the Four Seasons’ pool! Continue reading

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
