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!!

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?!

Kelsey & Erin. It is hard to find words to describe this wedding but if I had to pick two they would be:
From the gorgeous lace on Kelsey’s gown to the gold accents of all the tablescapes. To say it was stunning is an understatement. The day was gorgeous and these two had their ceremony on Anticipation Run in Keystone Colorado. The wedding party walked into the music from Michael Lancaster. After the nuptials guests continued up to Timber Ridge for the reception. They were greeted by the thoughtful florals of Ladybird Poppy. I mean, check out that mantle! So much lush, green garland. Following dinner the party was on. Jay at Standing Room Only kept the tunes going all night. Thank you to Jenna Noelle Photography for capturing and sharing the photos below!

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!

Candace and Adam got married on top of Vail Mountain on the Vail Wedding Deck. The weather was as beautiful as the bride. Just kidding-not even close! We then moved down the mountain to the gorgeous Arrabelle at Vail square. Liz of Fluer de Liz made the whole room soft and glowing with custom candelabras and flowing fabric. Great Time DJ kept the crowd moving while Jason and Gina caught every amazing moment!
Candace and Adam live in Austin, but their New York City proposal story is one of my favorites! I always love to hear both sides of the proposal so here it is in their own words:
Candace: It was the most magical and incredible proposal I could have ever asked for! We went to New York City right around Christmas, so the city had that extra sparkle and holiday magic to it! Adam planned everything out perfectly (with the help of some of my friends), and it was the best weekend of my life! We took a stroll through Central Park, and unexpectedly Adam dropped to one knee and proposed on the Bow Bridge, I could not believe it. Then he took me back to the hotel, where two of our closest friends, Melissa and Barrett, had flown in from Texas to be a part of the weekend! Everyone celebrated all weekend, we moved from one fabulous restaurant to the next, and met up with more of my closest friends (Erienne, Betsy, and Sean) who all live in New York. From comedy shows to shopping in Soho, we really enjoyed all the sights and sounds the city had to offer, it was amazing.
Adam: I had the whole thing planed for months, I don’t know how I didn’t blow the surprise. Although Candace threw me a curve ball… I had planned to propose on a horse drawn carriage ride in the park, and Candace decided last minute that she didn’t want to take the carriage because it was cruel to the horse! So instead we took a pedi-cab around the park, which is essentially a human drawn carriage! But it all worked out, he let us off at the bridge and you know the rest. That’s why I love her, she’s got the biggest heart.
Awwwwww! Now for the visuals!
