These two are one of the most crazy in love couples we've EVER seen. Seriously.  Their adoration and love for each other is contagious, they're consistently beaming, while in their presence, you can't help but bask in their joy, and giggle right along with them!  Paired with a fabulous vision, and great taste, needless to say, working with Hailey & Michael planning their dream day was incredible, and every moment was filled with laughter, fun, and lots and lots of LOVE.

Our job is always fun, but Lindsay & David are one of the most fun-loving, couples we have ever had the pleasure of working with!  With David's career in the car dealership world, he has always worked Saturdays, so since their courtship, their special fun day together has always been Sundays.

While we're wedding obsessed, we also love planning non-profit events, corporate affairs, AND over-the-top social gatherings!  When we were approached to plan this special 50th bday party, we jumped at the opportunity to infuse some of the guest of honor's favorite things into an elegant celebration for 50 of his closest friends and family to enjoy.

This eclectic wedding came together so beautifully, we love this couple and all of the special details Amanda & Will incorporated into their special day!  With a beautiful venue like Denver's Blanc, a blank canvas, it was fun to pull in so much color and texture to really add to the guest experience and liven up the space!  One of our favorite photographers, Daylene Wilson, captured these two and their day so eloquently, we adore how these images turned out!

It's always such a joy to see our work PUBLISHED!  It's beyond rewarding to gain recognition for our unique designs and creativity from those whom we respect in the industry.  So as you can imagine, we were over the moon to see our concept and design featured on one of our very favorite wedding blogs just last month!!!  

Please enjoy the beautiful goodness captured in some of our most favorite photos, and then head on over to Ruffled to check out the feature!   

From Ruffled:  This this real elopement has captured our hearts, and not just because Sophie and Andy are one of the most beautifully in love couples we’ve ever seen. Every element of their day was carefully thought out and brought to fruition by Danielle DeFiore PhotographyBello and Blue Events, and Somerset Design, with a brilliant color palette of orange, purple, and soft turquoise. If you’re thinking of eloping, this is a wonderful place to start for inspiration!

union station wedding reception | DENVER, COLORADO

We really have the best gig in the world.  Like, seriously, we pinch ourselves daily that this is actually our job!  Working with D&D on both of their wedding celebrations was a dream.  First we planned one elegant, intimate ceremony & reception in a mountain-top estate in beautiful Breckenridge, Colorado (check out the deets on that one here!), THEN, we got to plan a fun and fabulous city reception in the heart of Downtown Denver at the amazing  Union Station- what a treat! 

To maintain some continuity, for both events we stuck with a color palette that the bride loved. Inspired by orange calla lilies (given to her by her groom through the course of their courtship), we paired an unexpected rich purple, complemented by black, white, and touches of gold. It looked awesome and unique in both spaces and while different, we absolutely loved both celebrations!

When they first came to me, D&D wanted to plan not one, but TWO wonderful celebrations. First, an intimate affair with 50 guests at a private estate in beautiful Breckenridge, CO. Followed by a fabulous, fun reception for 150 guests at Denver's coolest hotspot, Union Station.  (Psst, See more on that wonderful event here!)

This savvy bride works in the event industry, so she was clear on what she loved and didn't love from the beginning. To maintain some continuity, for both events we stuck with a unique color palette that the bride loved. Inspired by orange calla lilies (given to her by her groom through the course of their courtship), we paired an unexpected rich purple, complemented by black, white, and touches of gold. 

We embraced the mountain setting of this private estate and added touches of vintage and understated elegance to soften and elevate the feel of this Colorado setting.  One of many details to enhance the comfort and experience for guests at this spring mountain-top wedding, was luxurious faux fur blankets to cozy up for the outdoor ceremony, and later around the fire pit as guests enjoyed making s'mores.  It doesn't get much more Colorado than that!

Every once in a while I get the pleasure of being around couples who are so crazy in love it really gets me.  As a hopeless romantic, I live to know this kind of connection exists.  These two are so into each other, it's both a pleasure & a joy to be in their presence.  So it goes without saying, planning this classic, elegant Denver wedding for two love birds was the most fun ever!

For B & L's Denver wedding, we designed knowing we wanted to achieve a vibe of classic glamour & romance.  With personalized, fresh details woven throughout, and a contemporary spin on old hollywood, we curated this urban affair to feel fresh and intimate with just the perfect amount of glam. 

Complete with amazing food stations featuring the couple's favorite urban fare, paired with hand selected wines sourced from vineyards all over the world, guests enjoyed a delightful food & beverage experience before dancing the night away!

The fabulous Sarah Perkins so perfectly documented their love and their day.  Check out these beautiful images & fall in love!

As wedding season slows down, and summer comes to a close, it's fun to finally start appreciating the most gorgeous photos and memories we have acquired from this summer's successful events...  Get excited, lots more lovely to come! 

Today I'm very excited to share because this is one wedding that is very special to me.  I mean, honestly, they all are. In different ways. {& I'm really not just saying that.} Every one holds a place in my heart. I LOVE what I do!!  That said, there are a few couples for whom I feel exceptional gratitude.  Those who took a chance early on, hiring me right from the get-go, trusting me with every detail of their most special day based solely on a recco when my business was barely an infant.  

To M & M, and ALL of my loyal clients, I'm humbled and grateful that you picked me, and I would not be here if it weren't for brave souls like you taking the chance- THANK YOU!!!

I feel like I say this after each and every wedding, but I swear it's 100% true!  This couple is seriously amazing, and I loved every single second of working with them to create a beautiful eclectic urban wedding in May in our beloved Mile High City!  

While their love story began in New York City, and they currently reside in Manhattan, the bride is from Colorado, and the groom from Brazil, so these two decided to plan TWO weddings in both wonderful places!

Designing this black tie, March wedding was such a treat! Camille & Daniel are adorable, have great taste, and from the beginning we had a blast working together to plan an elegant affair for their guests to enjoy in the city of Denver.  

On a perfect sunny day, with spring in full bloom, the bride & groom exchanged vows in a traditional Korean ceremony at their family church.  Immediately following, guests were treated to a stunning reception at the Denver Center of Performing Arts, in Seawell Grand Ballroom.  

For a fresh, modern and formal take on spring, we designed with a simple palette of white, gold and emerald green, and played with lots of foliage to complement beautiful white seasonal blossoms and gold accents.  We just love how the details all came together, and how eloquently their story was captured by the talented Julianne Brasher!

Assisting this wonderful couple with their March mountain wedding was an absolute dream! Jessica was the perfect bride... so sweet, so organized, and SO crafty!  Seriously, ya'll, she handcrafted so many amazing and thoughtful details for this wedding!

With most of their family and friends visiting from out of town, these two took extra care to orchestrate a beautiful Colorado weekend Estes Park for all of their guests to enjoy.  With stunning backdrops, locally inspired food & beverage, complementary rustic chic decor, and lively entertainment an amazing wedding weekend culminated with the most beautiful and fun mountain wedding celebration!

I have had the pleasure of knowing the bride, Ashley, for years through mutual friends, so when she contacted us to plan an intimate reception in Denver celebrating her hometown Nebraska nuptials, of course I was thrilled to help!  

To contrast her spring garden wedding in the midwest, we selected an urban, Denver venue in the month of November, along with a rich color palette featuring merlot against ivory, blush and peach, and lots of gold accents and candlelight.  The design created a warm, inviting environment, and paired beautifully with a locally sourced, seasonally inspired menu, complete with a pie bar for dessert!  

Everything came together so beautifully for this special evening!  I LOVE that the bride opted to wear a non-traditional cocktail dress to complement the event.  She owned her style and looked amazing in this Catherine Malandrino peplum number!  Paired with a vintage fur, it was a classic, lovely, bridal look.

Have we mentioned that we love our jobs?  Because we do.  Big time.  I feel so fortunate to do what I love every day, and one of the very best things about it is working with the most wonderful people!  

These two. Are seriously amazing.  Their love story, their relationship, and the crew of family & friends that surround them are all inspiring.  Everything, and everyone all came together so beautifully for their mountain wedding celebration in Estes Park! 

We literally love everything about this wedding, and this couple!  We invite you to check out the pretty pics {and the fabulous tear-jerking video!} and feel the love for this romantic mountain wedding affair!

Working with Lara & Ryan planning their Colorado rustic ranch wedding in Steamboat Springs was a dream.  Not only are they both warm, genuine, and fun people, but it was clear to see their mutual admiration for each other (love that!), and they were consistently upbeat, enjoying the planning process every step of the way! 

We invite you to check out the beauty of the day captured in the best possible way by the talented Ryan Olsen Photographer!

boho rustic ranch wedding | TELLURIDE, COLORADO

boho rustic ranch wedding | TELLURIDE, COLORADO

These two are so. much. fun.  While they reside in San Diego, they have always shared a love for beautiful Telluride, so it was the natural choice for their destination Colorado wedding.  From the beginning we knew we wanted a Colorado rustic, bohemian feel for their Telluride wedding and we were thrilled to find the AH-mazing Schmid Family Ranch Colorado boho chic affair!  

This was definitely not a traditional wedding, nor like anything I've ever done, but I love it!  The ceremony was performed in the round in a magical Aspen grove on property.  Post 'I do', guests followed the music, & the happy couple in a parade with instruments, streamers, and FUN back to the reception where they enjoyed a celebration complete with gourmet boxed dinners, mason jar beverages, and intimate campfires set against the most epic San Juan Mountain backdrop.    

Check out the pics, and fall in love.  The view!  The aspen grove!  The collection of lanterns, barrels & sarape covered hay bales!  The effortless styling & turquoise accessories! It all came together so beautifully and was exactly what we envisioned.

I love to count my blessings daily- I am so fortunate.  For a lot of reasons.  Chief among them, I have amazing parents.  Like seriously amazing humans who have taken care of me (read: put up with me) my entire life.  They have helped me, supported me and loved me unconditionally.  My heart swells and my face smiles when I think of them...

So naturally I am a sucker for pics like these:
