Are you planning a Colorado wedding for 2017 or 2018? We would love to hear about it and see how we can help with design, planning, and coordination. Save the Date Events is a premier wedding and event planning firm based in Denver and providing unparalleled service across Colorado including Denver, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Fort Collins, Estes Park, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Aspen, Snowmass, Steamboat, Winter Park, Tabernash, Crested Butte, Glenwood Springs, and Telluride.
When we learned that Kayla and Alex had begun their journey together at a hot air balloon festival, we were so inspired to find a way to incorporate this fanciful image, as well as their love of travel, into their elegant Holy Ghost Church wedding, with the wedding reception at the Denver University Club. Our imagination ran free as we conjured up a dozen ways to bring this flight of fancy into the decor and overall feel of the wedding. The crowning jewel was a beautiful lighted hanging hot air balloon sculpture created by Scott Hittleman, of Lighting by Scott, which we hand draped with fabric in the couple’s colors of cream, purple, and gold, and festooned with flowers.
The balloon hung directly over the dance floor, and added such magic to the rich wooded atmosphere of the beautiful University Club. We added touches of whimsy throughout – vintage travel postcards we scattered on the dinner tables, vintage suitcases held the cake and escort cards, and hot air balloon cake pops complemented the cake table. Kayla herself made adorable hot air balloon centerpieces, which were filled with flowers by Love Letters Floral. We also wanted to honor Alex’s recent graduation from the firefighter academy and added something just for him – a getaway transportation in the form of a vintage firetruck! The couple had huge fun cruising downtown Denver in the open air cab!

With the start of fall, the holiday season will be here before we know it. If you haven’t started thinking about planning your corporate holiday party or event, now is the time to book your venue or restaurant, get the guest list ready, and decide on decor, menu, and entertainment!
Here are 3 tips to help you get started planning your holiday party or event:
- Determine your guest count and budget for the event. Before choosing a venue for your holiday event, it’s important to know the approximate budget and expected guest count for your party. Create a rough guest list first and confirm the budget range with your team.
- Consider unique locations such as art galleries, lofts, restaurants, private home rentals, wineries, breweries, and historic mansions to host your event. Denver has so many incredible options to choose from!
- Hire a professional event planner to assist with venue selection, budget planning, theme/style/design, booking the caterer, hiring AV services, managing rentals, selecting and sending invitations, managing RSVP’s, and coordinating the event. An experienced Denver event planner will not only save you hours of time, she will work with you to create a unique and memorable event that inspires and delights your guests.
