A New Year’s Eve Wedding: Tricia + Eric

This blog post has been a bit daunting because I do not know how to capture the magic of this wedding in words and photos alone…however, I’m so excited to share it with you! Tricia & Eric were amazing clients…the kind we dream of! Their excitement to become husband and wife was infectious and the main focus of their short engagement. They viewed this commitment with the utmost reverence and couldn’t wait to throw the most unbelievable party to celebrate with their friends & family!

The decision to have the wedding on New Years Eve was carefully weighed and determined to be the perfect night to invite all their friends & family to a black tie, downtown Denver, winter soiree. Because Tricia & Eric were so busy during this short engagement, they allowed me the freedom to create a space & set the stage that would capture who they are, what their love represents, and how they wanted to celebrate…and because it was New Year’s Eve…we got to use LOTS of GLITTER!!

We selected one of my favorite downtown Denver Venues, The Studio Loft and Kevin Taylor’s at the Opera House. Both of these spaces offer the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable event. I was so inspired as the couple challenged me to blend Eric’s cool, modern, downtown style (seen in the venue) and Tricia’s boho, free spirited, romantic style (seen in the decor). And I couldn’t have done it without my amazing vendors! DesignWorks Denver helped bring my vision to life in the ceremony space with miles of draped fabric, candles and lighting. Then Liz & Cori from Cori Cook Floral Designs blew our minds with the floral installations and centerpieces. They always go above and beyond my expectations and that’s why they are my favorite gals to work with! And let’s not forget the linens from LA Tavola! Linens might be my favorite indulgence in event design and this couple let me go all out with tablescapes that made jaws drop.

But that’s enough from me…enjoy the photos brought to you by Preston Utley. And if you want to see Tricia & Eric’s wedding video check it here!

Meeting Cory & Greg and getting to work with them was such a joy! Their love for one another is centered on a deep friendship and humor that keeps everyone around them laughing. They also have a brilliant sophistication that was reflected in their Black Tie Wedding in Downtown Denver at Kevin Taylor’s at The Opera House. This August Wedding was one of my favorites this summer!

Anna & Joel: Simple Romance

Anna & Joel tied the knot on July 14th in Denver!!

We had the honor of assisting them on their special day and working with them was so fun. Their hearts were set on a simple soiree focused on friends and family. And that’s what they got, spending their wedding weekend up in the mountains with their favorite people and then came down to Denver Sunday with a unique Ceremony taking place in the middle of the church service with a reception at the Sister of the Bride’s house.

But this was no ordinary backyard party! Guest were met with passed hor dourves and cocktails served beautifully by Catering By Design. Everywhere you looked there were perfect personal touches  that told you a little more about this couple. But what really caught your eye was their love for one another and their Joy now being Husband and Wife!
