Last December my husband and I were asked by a couple of our friends to take a cooking class. Honestly we didn’t have much going on and we love our friends so we thought what the heck?! I had no idea it would be so much fun and that I would actually learn a few things. We took the class in a professional kitchen at Colorado Mountain College under the instruction of Ian Buchanan. We had some instruction in the beginning, a tour of the kitchen then we were really set loose. Everything was at our fingertips which was awesome. I was looking for the hard boiled eggs only to find out I had to do it myself. Ha! I always had a difficult time hard boiling eggs. The high altitude is a true challenge and mine always come out either over or under done. I thought about walking out right there. But with some direction from Ian, he taught me to hard boil a perfect egg that I still use today. Eggs in cold water, bring to a boil, set for 13 minutes, remove from heat, let sit for 5 minutes in hot water then place in cold water until cool enough to peel. Perfect! As you can see from the photos, after all of our hard work we were able to enjoy all of the yummy food with a glass of wine. I totally recommend doing this with anyone. I think it would be a perfect thing for your fiance, parents and future inlaws to all do together. Check out the calendar of events by clicking here. We can’t wait to hear how it goes!!

I decided when I did my first post of ‘My Favorite Wedding Moment’, that I wanted to make it a yearly thing…because I love it so much! Click here to see the original post. In addition that, I love how the father of the bride looks walking their daughter down the aisle. Their chest is out a little farther, they are standing a little taller and couldn’t look more proud. I adore it! Check out these photos below. All the feels!

Nichele and Ben. What’s better than getting married on a mountain in the middle of winter? As a Keystone wedding planner I can tell you…nothing. Everyone is bundled up and the worst thing that can happen is it can snow. But that’s half the fun isn’t it? I’m so happy to share this wedding with you. From the pine cone escort card holders to the bride’s white shawl, the entire wedding screamed winter. Love! Even the flowers by Ladybird Poppy were winter themed. These two were married on Anticipation Run in Keystone, Colorado. It is simply my favorite backdrop for a Colorado winter wedding. Thank you to Sarah Roshan Photography for these stunning photos! And if you want to see their wedding video, check out Bosha Video by clicking here! Also a big shout out to A Great Time DJ who kept the party going once the guests arrived at the reception venue at the Alpenglow Stube. So much fun! It leaves me wondering, why doesn’t everyone have a Colorado winter wedding?!

Natalie and Phoniex. For this blog post I will need to let the photos below speak for themselves. The reason, our fabulous, talented Day of Planner Emily, coordinated this wedding. What I can tell you is that Natalie and Phoniex were married on Anticipation Run in Keystone, Colorado and had their reception at Timber Ridge. Fleur de Liz provided the simple yet amazing centerpieces. I love how wild they were and the flower that looks a lot like cabbage! A huge thank you to Marianne Brown Photography for sharing this photos! Enjoy!

Liz and Stew…and their entire crew. Who’s their crew? Animals. I wish I could begin to remember just how many animals that have in their lives but I can tell you this. It’s a lot. Two of which were actually included in their ceremony. Liz and Stew were married on the beautiful Dercum Mountain. Not always one of the easiest to get to…one gondola and over mountain terrain…but it’s one of my faves! Check out that view! After the ceremony guests were whisked away by another gondola to the reception site, The Alpenglow Stube. The wildflower theme was executed by Bloom Flower Shop. Gorgeous! A big shout out to Joe Kusumoto Photography for these amazing photos!
