Breckenridge Wedding Planner: Kellie & Kent
Posted by elizabeth waldmann on July 28th, 2016
Kellie and Kent became our clients from a referral from another couple we worked with. We always love referrals especially when we had as much fun with them as they did with us. Stay with me, Kellie is the sister of a groom of a couple we worked with from the year before. When I heard the last name (and it’s a unique one) I felt some deja vu and a bit of confusion. I was so excited to work with Kellie and Kent because they are such a great family and group of people. So down to the details…
From the beginning of our process you could just see how much these two loved each other. They chose Ten Mile Station for their gorgeous ceremony and reception. Beautiful sherbet tones and blues were used throughout the wedding to really make the venue and the mountain scenery pop. A huge thank you to Caroline Colvin Photography for capturing the day and sharing the wedding photos!

Logan and Matt truly are the cool, laid back, Colorado couple. They got married at Timber Ridge on top of North Peak in Keystone, Colorado. Logan dressed up the Timber Ridge deck with a Chuppa from Enchante Celebrations and gorgeous florals from Fluer de Liz Weddings. The couple and their guests danced the night away to the outstanding live band The Fever. Thank you so much to Mark and Michelle of IN Photography for capturing this day!
Colorado Wedding Planner: How to change your last name after you’re married
Posted by johnna-patton on May 16th, 2015
If you’re not sure about the process required to change your last name after you’ve gotten married, don’t feel bad. Only those who have actually gone through the process do know, and everyone has to start somewhere. Below, we offer you the step-by-step process required for changing your last name after you’ve gotten married.
Step 1: Get a Copy of Your Marriage License
If you’ve just recently gotten married, chances are you have a copy of your marriage license on hand. You’re going to need this to show proof that you’ve gotten married in order to change your last name.
Step 2: Start with Your Social Security Card
You’re going to want to start by changing your name on your social security card, which will help you in changing your name on everything else. Visit the Social Security Administration’s website and fill out an application for a name change. You will use your marriage license in combination with the application to prove that you have gotten married.
Step 3: The Department of Motor Vehicles
Once you receive your new social security card, you can take it (along with your marriage license) to the Department of Motor Vehicles and get your name formally changed on your driver’s license or your ID.
Step 4: Financial Accounts
You’re going to want to visit your bank pretty quickly after you receive that new identification with your new name. Your name must match on your ID and your bank accounts in order to access your money, so take your new ID or driver’s license, your new social security card and your marriage license to your bank. Ask them about the process of changing your name on your accounts and get that taken care of.
Step 5: Changing Your Name Everywhere Else
Once you’ve taken care of the first 4 steps, which are the main steps, the rest is fairly easy. You will have all the new identification proof you need to change your name everywhere else. Make sure you consider changing your name to your preferred pharmacy, your doctor’s office, your school or work, your local post office, and any other institution which requires your name in order for you to do business or take care of important necessities.
It’s that easy – although the process usually takes a few weeks, you can get started on it early by filling out an application through the Social Security Administration before you leave for your honeymoon.

Colorado wedding planner: A Colorado 420 Wedding
Posted by johnna-patton on April 29th, 2015
With the sale of marijuana for recreational use now legal in Colorado, pot and its various paraphernalia are becoming visible at weddings in my state. Brides and grooms, even ones who say they don’t partake often but want to be hospitable, are giving guests choices that are much different than the standard merlot or chardonnay. Now, the choice could be Durbin Poison or Grape Ape.
In honor of 420 I am excited to write about the 420 wedding we planned last summer! I knew from the first meeting that Jenny Finkel and Ryan Mason were not interested in the typical Colorado mountain wedding. Their vision was less Martha Stewart and more High Times. The couple met years before at the Burning Man Festival in Black Rock Desert, Nevada. Ryan and Jenny drove a 1 ton multi colored tent called the “Shady Waffle” from San Francisco to Colorado. The Shady Waffle was home to a weed bar tended by two amazing budtenders, an oxygen bar, a liquor bar and a lounge. So fun! The budtenders were very knowledgeable and they walked the guests through the whole experience. Happy 420! Thank you to Joe Kusamoto of Joe Kusamoto Photography for keeping an open mind and capturing this amazing day!
