Stephanie and Kiel. They were one of the most down to earth couples that I have had the pleasure of working with. Wedding planning can be pretty consuming. Two families coming together, so many emotions, not to mention the amount of money that goes into the weekend. Stephanie and Kiel hired every one of their vendors about 2 years out. They wanted to get everything done and have a plan in place so they could enjoy being engaged. SO cute! When the day (finally 😉 came around they were just so in love and ready to party! Leon Joseph Littlebird was their officiant and performed an unforgettable ceremony. With sage burning and everything! As you can see from the last photos below, Jay at Standing Room Only had everyone dancing the night away. A huge thank you to Katie Green of Katie Corinne Photography for the wedding photos! Thank you Stephanie and Kiel for entrusting us to help on your wedding day! We wish you the best!

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!

How beautiful is this couple and this wedding!?!! Our busy summer wedding season is from June until September. We are lucky enough to plan a handful of winter weddings every year. These weddings tend to be smaller occasions ranging anywhere from just the couple to about 20 people. Jamie and Andy pulled out all the stops when planning their Keystone winter wedding. Six piece band…check! Beautiful (and delicate) floral arrangements…check! Over 100 guests…check! Oh, and did I mention everyone needed to take two gondolas to get there? Gondolas are not just for skiing anymore 🙂 Jamie and Andy were married at Our Lady of Peace in Silverthorne, Colorado. After the I do’s the couple and guests made their way to River Run in Keystone to load the gondola and head to Timber Ridge. I don’t know how she did it but Sarah at Ladybird Poppy managed to get all of the breathtaking flowers up two gondolas without even a wilted petal. Incredible! The wedding party and guests partied all night long to the jams of Raising Cain Band. A huge thank you to Christin and River of Riv/Rose for capturing and sharing this day!
Thank you Jamie and Andy for choosing Distinctive Mountain Events to be your winter wedding planners for your big day! We had so much fun planning with you and wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Rosa and Josh’s April 1st wedding was like something out of a fairy tale thanks to the snowy, natural beauty of Timber Ridge on top of North Peak in Keystone, Colorado. The venue was romantic and warm with the ceiling to floor drapery and lace accents. Photographer Rachael Gomez Photography perfectly captured Josh and Rosa’s playful personalities.
“Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to our big day! Our wedding day was hands-down the best day of our lives. And it wouldn’t have been the same without you and your team! We are so grateful!!

Dave and Jeremy were married this last summer and we could not have been more excited to be a part of it. This was our first same sex wedding and we were just ecstatic when they chose us to be their wedding planners. They chose Timber Ridge in Keystone Colorado to have their wedding ceremony and reception. Guests witnessed these two get married on Anticipation Run, a ski run on top of Keystone mountain. After that, guests gathered inside for dinner and dancing. A Great Time DJ was there to keep the music and therefore the dancing going. 🙂 Bec’s Blossoms provided the table decor which was really up my alley. A lot of succulents and simple arrangements. The best part was guests were able to take them home at the end of the night so they doubled as wedding favors. A huge thank you to Brooke at Josie Pix for capturing and sharing these amazing wedding photos!
