Posted by on August 10th, 2012

Keystone Wedding--Alpenglow StubeShannon and Pedro celebrated their marriage with family and friends at the Alpenglow Stube on top of Keystone Mountain.  Their story is incredibly romantic.  Pedro was a big game hunter in Argentina and Shannon a New York City dweller.  Pedro had never been to New York or put on a suit but Shannon changed all that!  They had an amazing wedding in Keystone, Colorado filled with dancing and Latin music. A big thank you to Kent Meireis of Kent Meireis Photography for these stunning photographs.   Muy Caliente!

The hydrafacial is perfect for Rocky Mountain Brides!

Posted by on August 2nd, 2012

I recently had a hydrafacial from Allure Aesthetics in Friso, Colorado.  My skin instantly looked and felt amazing!  A HydraFacial is a patented, multi-step treatment that merges the feel of a soothing spa treatment with advanced medical technology giving you instantly softer, more hydrated skin. Each treatment uses a series of HydroPeel tips with gentle abrasive edges. First your skin is cleansed and dead skin cells are exfoliated. Then a gentle acid is applied to loosed debris from your pores. A painless vortex suction is then applied to extract and clean out your pores. Finally, your skin is hydrated with a vortex-fusion system delivering antioxidants and hyaluronic acid deep into the skin. A hydra facial typically takes 30 minutes and is painless and very soothing. This treatment is ideal for brides not only from Colorado but also for brides getting married in Colorado.
