It may be winter here in Colorado, but I loved how this inspiration board takes the colors of Christmas and uses them in a summer setting!
We loved working with Katherine and Eric to plan their winter wedding at the Broadmoor. It was important to them that their guests feel comfortable and enjoy every moment of the celebration. To embrace the rustic setting of the Cheyenne Lodge pine cones, berries and branches were included in the arrangement on the guest tables. Guests enjoyed gourmet cupcakes for dessert – a special request from the groom!
If you are inviting children to your wedding reception you want to make sure that you provide them some sort of entertainment during dinner. This will give them something to do while they wait for the dance floor to open up and allows their parents to enjoy their meal as well.
To really create a space for the kids, we like to set up a table that is just for them. We add butcher paper to the table so that they can draw on the tables, create a custom, kid-friendly centerpiece, and provide them with crayons and a wedding activity booklet.
If you prefer to have the children entertained away from the celebration, we highly recommend you contact Wedding and Event Sitters by Charity. They can provide in-room sitters for your guests or set up a kid zone at the reception that your child guests won’t want to leave!
This wedding video highlight from KHODGEfilms perfectly captures Jamie and Alex’s wedding this Fall at Donovan Pavilion in Vail.
It is always fun to work with a couple with a clear vision of what they want their wedding day to be like. This was very much the case with Katherine and Frank. Katherine had clear visions regarding the design of the event and Frank was clear on the overall guest experience he wanted to create.
Katherine always loved the wedding scene from the movie “Love Actually” and we worked with A Music Plus to pull together a choir to surprise her groom and guests with a performance at the end of the ceremony. Guests then boarded buses for a tour of Downtown Denver, encouraged to sit-back, relax, enjoy the sites and some Pops champagne.
The design for the reception at the Ritz-Carlton, Denver began with “Dance in the City,” by Renior, a painting that Katherine had always loved. We took the Great Gatsby-esque feel of the postcard and used it to design the elements of the wedding.
Guests danced the night away to the sounds of Funkiphino and stopping by the photo booth to capture the moment.
Like many couples planning a Colorado destination wedding, Deena and Chad didn’t shoot their engagment pictures with Rachael Grace Photography until a couple of days before their wedding atThe Broadmoor.
Whether you are hosting your wedding in Downtown Denver or somewhere in the mountains, it is important to educate your guests on how to deal with the high altitude!
At more than one mile above sea level, atmospheric pressure is decreased, the air is thinner, and less oxygen is available. It is also colder, drier, and the ultraviolet rays from the sun are stronger. Visitors to high elevation may experience shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, nausea, headache, unusual tiredness, or trouble sleeping. Please take precautions to minimize the effects.

The Broadmoor was the perfect elegant setting for Tricia and Michael’s black, red and white wedding.
We were honored to be included in anna bé five celebrating the fifth anniversary of anna bé, a fantastic bridal salon in Denver. Each planner was given a color to create their 1920′s inspired vingette for the event. We used the color black as the basis for our design inspiration for our space with By Design Event Decor. All of the guests loved our pink and black candy bar from Lola’s Sugar Rush.
