Kayla + Dustin | Bohemian meets glam at this autumn Barn wedding |The Barn at Raccoon Creek, Denver, CO | Colorado Wedding Planner

Kayla + Dustin’s wedding was one for the books. These babes were married on a chilly Fall day at The Barn at Raccoon Creek. The morning started with Kayla + her bridesmaids sipping champagne, dancing, reminiscing and laughing while being pampered by the lovely ladies of Beauty Mark.

Kayla was an absolute dream to work with and we couldn’t get enough of her sweet personality, confidence and bold style! Enter Dusty— laid back and easy-going. It’s clear why these two ended up together— they complement each other so well. When you meet their families, it’s even more clear why they are the genuinely amazing people they are. They all brought such a wonderful enthusiasm to K+D’s wedding day (and quite a few happy tears!).

Colorado’s chilly Fall day created the perfect setting for Kayla + Dustin’s ceremony which was adorned with a stunning European mount, a beautiful lush greenery garland by Hawk Flowers, and accented with draped chiffon blowing in the fall breeze. Shaggy boho rugs were the final piece of the design and gave the ceremony location that bohemian vibe we adore. Kayla wore a stunner of a dress from one of our favorite designers— Rue de Seine. She had the gown customized to fit her bold style and we loved the draped sleeves she added to make it her own! Dusty’s all black attire complete with bolo was perfection alongside Kayla’s eye-catching dress. Kayla’s close relationship with her brother made him the obvious choice to officiate their ceremony. He, of course, incorporated all the personal details he could into their ceremony— talking about their favorite concerts at Red Rocks and all those funny ‘growing up with sibling’ stories (can’t pass up an opportunity like that!).

After a chilly outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour began and guests were invited inside to the equally beautiful boho inspired reception area. More greenery, gold accents, chiffon draping and a king’s table backdrop lit with the words ‘It Was Always You’ completed the look inside. Their wedding cake also matched the bold designs— a 2-tiered geode inspired wedding cake by Azucar Bakery. Kayla, Dustin and all of their guests danced the night away and took all the photos in one of our favorite photo booth options— The Shutterbus.

Cheers, Kayla + Dustin! We are so grateful to know you and thank you for letting us play a part in your beautiful wedding day. Xo.

Darcy + Cory | The St Vrain, Longmont, CO | Colorado Wedding Planner

Today on the blog, we’re looking back on the gorgeous wedding of one of very own lead planners. Our girl Darcy loves a good party— which means she knows how to throw a good party. Darcy + Corey were married at The St Vrain in Longmont— an industrial, modern venue with well thought out touches everywhere you look. From their first look nook and stylish lounge seating to the cross-back chairs and wood farm tables, this place has it all. Naturally, it seemed like the perfect spot for them to make it official!

Darcy is the lead designer of root + gather events; she personally has a love for clean, minimalist designs which shown through in her own wedding design. We loved how all of her bridesmaids wore varying styles of white dresses alongside her stunning, customized lace wedding gown from Emma & Grace. Can we talk about that awesome lace-up deep v neckline for just a second?! 10/10.

To these two, candlelight was an important element to bring into their day Who doesn’t love dinner by candlelight to set the perfect romantic mood? Hundreds of candles lined their ceremony aisle and adorned their guest tables which created a cozy, inviting vibe for all of their closest friends and family. One of our favorite details had to be the European skull mount hanging above them as they exchanged vows which was softened by candlelight, crystal chandeliers, and the gorgeous dark wood backdrop at The St Vrain.

As guests arrived for the ceremony, they were greeted with pre-ceremony drinks— a glass of champagne or a Bud Light (hey, got to cover all of your guest preferences you know!). The evening continued into the beautiful basement level of The St Vrain for cocktail hour. With a built in bar, comfy furniture, and a heel-friendly outdoor courtyard, this venue let’s you utilize every inch of it’s gorgeous space for your event.

Of course, dancing was a priority for these guys and Cameron of 5280 Mobile DJ brought it for them! Darc + Corey danced the night away with their friends and family as they stepped into newly married life.

Congratulations, guys! We love you and couldn’t be more thrilled for you! Xo.

Denver Fitness Week | Denver, CO | Colorado Event Planner + Designer

We had such a fantastic time designing the space for Denver Fitness Week's kickoff party this past May. This event takes place annually and sells out-- so be sure to get your tickets early! It is inspired by Denver's insanely awesome fitness scene and aims to highlight Denver's top fitness studios by offering discounted classes to it's attendees all week long. As a bit of a fitness lover myself (my mother is a personal trainer and I grew up running after her power walking everywhere), we jumped at the opportunity to help them bring color and fun to their kickoff event hosted at Skylight.828. 

Our inspiration was those fantastic 80's fitness videos--you know 'em, you love 'em. We wanted to make the room fun and vibrant while leaving plenty of space for 150+ fitness lovers to sweat it out! We designed these fun and quirky neon signs displaying each of the 3 fitness instructors names, had the lovely Handsome Love Calligraphy create the long banners signs with inspirational fitness quotes, and incorporated uplighting by the fabulous Elite Entertainment to really make them pop. 

Three fabulous instructors traded spots leading all 150 attendees in a group workout. Sound Off Colorado provided the beats via headphones provided to every guest. KEEL Vodka teamed up with Brew Dr. Kombucha to offer fantastic libations and Vega provided some delicious smoothies on the patio post-workout.

We highly recommend you check out this great event if you're in the Denver area! Huge shoutout to all of the amazing sponsors and volunteers who make this event a success. Denver, Colorado is a pretty happening place. Now check out all the fun photos from the event below!

Caitlin + Sean | Longmont, CO - The St Vrain + Private Property | Colorado Wedding Planner

Caitlin + Sean were married on a quintessential Colorado summer afternoon. They held their ceremony on beautiful property owned by Sean's parents which was surrounded by meticulously maintained gardens, large aspen + pine trees, a private lake, and a vine-covered pergola. Their reception was held at The St Vrain-- Longmont's newest industrial venue which boasts a brick interior with exposed beams, polished concrete floors, an outdoor patio area and a chic downstairs cocktail lounge loaded with the prettiest lounge furniture you've ever seen.

 Caitlin + Sean's day was filled with so many personal details that we loved. When an afternoon storm rolled in during their ceremony, these two and all their family + friends quickly relocated to an intimate indoor area to escape the rain. It created the most cozy and personal ceremony setting as everyone huddled close to listen to Caitlin + Sean exchange vows and promise the rest of their lives to each other. 

Guests then made their way over to the lovely St Vrain where cocktail hour began in full swing. A lively trio played to the guests as they snacked on delicious appetizers and signature cocktails provided by Sugar Pine Catering.  Guests were greeted upstairs with a family-style meal, more cocktails, toasts, and dancing. And of course, mini ice-cream sandwiches for dessert! 

Caitlin + Sean, cheers to you! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day.
