Ellen and Greg. These two were married last September and as luck would have it, it snowed the night before so not only did they get the gorgeous yellow Aspens but they also got snow on the mountains in the background! It was so beautiful! It was a little chilly but guests stayed warm in their blanket that doubled as a wedding favor. One of my favorite moments of this wedding was that Greg’s father doubled as the officiant. There was so much love and emotion. Greg even gave his dad a hug to help him through the ceremony. After the ceremony guests filed into Ten Mile Station for the cocktail hour and then the reception. Bloom Flower Shop did all of the elegant floral arrangements. Courtney of Hampton Entertainment kept the dance floor packed all night with one hit after another. Thank you to Tim of Timothy Faust Photography for capturing the wonderful wedding day!

From the beginning that I started working with Julie and Sam for their Timber Ridge wedding, Lexi Waffles was taken into consideration. What Kind of flowers she would have in her hair. Where her place would be in the processional. How she would get dinner. Who is Lexi Waffles? Well that’s their puppy of course! I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Lexi Waffles until the rehearsal. Let me tell you, she lived up to the hype 🙂 She’s so sweet! And how cute is that name?! It actually inspired Johnna to name her puppy Deacon Biscuits. Ha! On to the details!
I’m not too keen when it comes to surprises for the bride or groom. It seems that everyone likes to do this but I’m always hesitant. So when Sam’s mother asked me to help with a choreographed dance they had planned to perform after dinner, I was a little nervous. After we talked more, it made so much sense and I couldn’t wait for the day for it to happen and I could see all this hard work (and sneakiness) come together. One family is from New York and the other is from Boston. So they had a dueling dance. It was amazing and Julie and Sam loved it. Phew 🙂 A Great Time DJ did a great job with keeping this a secret and making sure everything went off without a hitch.
Ladybird Poppy Floral Design provided the amazing flowers. (Including a leash floral arrangement for Lexi Waffles, of course). A huge thank you to Matthew Speck Photography for sharing these amazing photos! Thank you Sam and Julie for asking me to be your wedding planner!

Ali and Rob. It was such a pleasure not only working with these two but also their incredible families. This is exactly how it should be when two families come together. All of the planning meetings and tastings were done with six people. Ali, Rob and both sets of parents. There was always so much joy and laughter. It was so fun to work with them. Rob’s father was actually given the honor of performing Ali and Rob’s ceremony. You don’t get much more family than that. On to the details! About an hour before ceremony time at the Keystone Ranch, the clouds rolled in, the wind picked up and it started raining. Everyone remained relatively calm. The wind was really howling and at one point it was raining sideways so I was really proud of them. I love couples like Ali and Rob because they took it in stride and were ready for anything. In true Colorado fashion the weather passed and we started the ceremony right on time. After that slight hiccup, everything went great. Ladybird Poppy‘s floral arrangement added just the right amount of green to the Keystone Ranch’s eclectic wedding tables. Everything was gorgeous! After dinner, guests were moved into the tent where Mannequin The Band absolutely rocked it. If it wasn’t for Caroline Colvin Photography I wouldn’t be able to share these amazing memories! Thank you Ali and Rob for allowing me to be a part of your amazing day and help you plan your wedding!

We met Darienne and Charlie for coffee in Breckenridge and six months later they were married at Ten Mile Station. Darienne had an etheral beauty and a calm confidence about her and Charlie was the life of the party. The day was filled with laughs! Charlie is in the entertainment industry so he brought a DJ and emence from New York City and I have to say that I have never been SO entertained! Looking at Darienne and Charlie that day felt like you were watching two best friends embarking on a new adventure. I must say a highlight for me was when the officiant had forgotten to take the security tag off of his suit jacket. He absolutely owned It! Petal and Bean did an amazing job making the room pop with color and Meigan Canfield Photography captured every moment of the day!
