Keystone Wedding Planner: Jill & Gabe

Posted by on August 6th, 2014

We have had a pretty wet summer so far, here in the mountains. This can be a challenge when you have a wedding up two mountain gondolas to get to Timber Ridge in Keystone, Colorado. Jill and Gabe must have some great vibes on their side because the rain held off all evening and the resulted in an enchanting evening. I always love some clouds (no rain) on a wedding day because it just add something theatrical to the photos. You tell me. Aren’t these moments captured, amazing?! Thank you Matthew Photography the photos!

Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Fun Ways to Incorporate Balloons Into Your Summer Wedding!

Posted by on June 9th, 2014

Bold, playful and just a little whimsical, balloons are a unique touch that we’ve come to adore seeing in wedding decor.  Whether your wedding theme is modern, classic, or mountain chic, here are some fun ways to incorporate this trend into your wedding details.

Include balloons in your engagement session. What better way to have a little fun – and end up with stunning photos? We also think they’re perfect for a save the date. Just write your wedding date on the balloons and snap away!

Spell out your true feelings, highlight your new last name, and draw attention to important items (like cake!) at your reception.

Add a splash of color to a monochromatic look. These bright balloons and those all-white outfits? Match made in heaven!

Give them to the flower girl. Because it doesn’t get much cuter than a flower girl holding a giant balloon – especially if it happens to say “here comes the bride.”

Incorporate them into your decor. They look great alongside this dessert buffet, but they also happen to make for a fantastic photo booth or ceremony backdrop.

Breckenridge Wedding Planner, Plans Her Wedding! : Decor Optimization

Posted by on May 8th, 2014

During the wedding season last summer, I took the opportunity to save some decorations that normally would have gone in the trash. I know this may sound bizarre but I thought it was a great chance to give second life to a normally single used decoration. When Wes and I began our wedding planning journey, I knew I wanted to include these items. Whether it was burlap runners or wooden pedestals, I was very happy to be reusing these items!

Another way we kept from having decorations that are single use is by saving our San Pellegrino and Espolon bottles. Two of my favorite liquids! Mineral water and tequila! These bottles normally would end up in our recycling. Instead, I removed the labels, tied a piece of jute around the neck and filled the bottle with a flower. After the wedding, the bottles will simply be placed in the recycling. Stay tuned for the beautiful result!
