I’m not kidding when I say Ashley, Mike and Chunk. Chunk, I’m hoping you have guessed by now, is Ashley and Mike’s pupper, and he was a big part of their day. Planning with Ashley and Mike was one of the highlights of my summer! These two are so much fun! Being huge music fans they not only flew in DJ Dominic Wayne from Chicago but also had music lyrics on every table. As a Colorado wedding planner I have learned that weddings at the end of September can be eventful to say the least. Mike and Ashley had initially planned to have their ceremony on the deck of The Lodge at Breckenridge to treat their guests to the stunning views. The big day arrives and wow–snow! Undaunted, Mike and Ashley said their vows in the snow, making for fabulous photos captured perfectly by Lindsey Boluyt of Lindsey Boluyt Photography. The ceremony deck was a winter wonderland and thanks to Ashley’s vision, Ladybird Poppy and Elite Entertainment’s execution, the reception was a bohemian paradise. Thank you Ashley and Mike for being beautiful inside and out!

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!

As a Breckenridge wedding planner I am often working with brides and grooms from other states. No complaints about that, but it’s always special to spend time planning with a local couple. Cue Ashley and Jonno. These two cuties met working together at ski school in Breckenridge, Colorado and wanted to have their fall wedding looking out at the mountains they love. Ashley kept the look classic yet rustic at The Lodge at Breckenridge with white florals and gold accents by Garden of Eden and an amazing chuppa from Tents and Events. Another local, DJ Clockwork was spinning the tunes and Drew Jensen of Drew Jensen Photography was there to capture it all. Mozal tov!

Such a gorgeous day and an even more gorgeous couple! Rachael and Zach were married on Anticipation Run in Keystone, Colorado. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the deck at Timber Ridge. They also listened to the amazing string duo, Suite Talk. The reception followed with Suite Talk trading their strings for a DJ board. Everyone partied until the end of the night. A huge thank you to Joe Friend Photography for sharing the photos below! Also, I have to mention, the amazing florals are by Ladybird Poppy. My favorite flower being the Proteas (that white spiky flower in the first image). Did you know that it represents change and hope? I think it’s perfect for a wedding!
