We had such a great time working with Ashley and Steven over the past year to plan their destination wedding in Vail, Colorado. We worked with Ashley to determine her design style was modern, elegant, colorful, and romantic with a touch of mountain rustic.
To set the tone in the Arrabelle ballroom, we draped the room with ivory satin draping and used amber uplighting to add a more romantic vibe to the room. To keep with the modern style, we sourced gold chevron linen to adorn all of the guest tables. These are some of our favorite linens ever! Place settings included gold beaded chargers with navy satin napkins. We alternated tall and short centerpieces to add dimension to the room design. Centerpieces were a variety of pinks, greens, and white blooms with a touch of rustic such as willow or a wood slice under the vase. We used gold chivari chairs to keep the room elegant and added pinspot lighting to show off the gorgeous centerpieces and the cake.
For dinner, guests enjoyed fabulous food stations including a gourmet pasta bar, a mini taco station, and a Colorado inspired carving station. We surprised guests with late night snacks including a donut bar with additional sweet treats such as rice krispie treats and gourmet cookies.
The ceremony was planned for the Vail Wedding Deck but with the rainy afternoon, we worked with Pink Monkey Solutions to quickly add draping and lighting to our backup location inside the Arrabelle. The girls at Plum Sage were amazing at using the ceremony florals inside to create a gorgeous setting for Ashley and Steven. Our officiant, Keith, was absolutely amazing. At least 30 guests commented that it was the best ceremony they had ever been too! Their wedding guests loved the band and kept the dance floor packed all night.
Thank you Ashley and Steven for being such a joy to work with. We wish you the absolute best wishes!
We love following the newest trends in wedding fashion and are delightfully surprised at the newest trend for next season – the crop top gown! We’ve seen models, actresses, and even bold fashionista’s in Colorado rocking the crop top. With the ability to show a peek-a-boo tiny amount of skin, or the toned abs you’ve been working on forever, crop top wedding gowns are this seasons next big thing!
We were so excited to throw Amber and Alex the most amazing and adorable baby shower. Amber has been a lead event planner with Save the Date Events for almost six years and brings an amazing set of unique design skills, uber detailed planning, and contagious excitement to our team.
We created a French Market inspired party, with delicious baguettes, fresh salads, and beautiful cheese displays. We paired these with lavender lemonade and fresh cucumber water. Plump berries sat in tiny colanders and the smell was lovely from the fresh lavender bunches that were placed around. The flawless work of our dear friend, Rachael from Intricate Icings, drew a tear from the guest of honor – seriously, the cakes were knock-outs!
Amber and Alex are enjoying this exciting time with their new baby boy, Harrison William Fairbanks who was born at 12:14pm on November 23, 2014. Congrats to the new family!
We celebrated the holidays working with an amazing company to help their employees celebrate the past few years of business success. It was the company’s first holiday party in almost a decade and the client truly wanted to impress their colleagues.
One of our main priorities of the event was to “wow” their employees. We accomplished this by presenting guests with unique gourmet food presentations such as the Wall of Flame from Catering by Design. We also brought in the super-Colorado style photo booth company, Ear 2 Ear who offer an authentic ski gondola booth, the DIA tent booth, and a beetle-kill pine photo booth. We also surprised and amazed the guests with a performance by hip hop violinist Maestro Hughes and the uber talented DJ Ripm. The Chateaux at Fox Meadows was a great fit for this 400+ person holiday party. With its beautiful open ballroom and amazing lighting by Lighting and Design by Scott, the atmosphere for guests was stunning and very wintry!
