Kevin Taylor Loft Wedding | Downtown Denver

How do you soften up an industrial building? You add drape, lights, fuchsia, and a touch of sparkle! Working with Emily and Neil was such a fun process. Emily had an idea of a modern sparking wedding and Neil wanted to do everything possible to make sure she was wowed on their wedding day.

Yards of silver drape flowed from the walls as bistro lights drew the eye to the ceiling. Two hundred glass orbs with twinkle lights brought visual interest to the room. Deep blue linens with a silver sparkle runner set an amazing stage for solid fuchsia floral centerpieces. Guests enjoyed an amazing dinner and danced the night away under the lights!

It was a pleasure to work with Emily and Neil. We wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding | Rustic Charm

larkspur colorado wedding

We absolutely loved working with Meredith and Nate on their fall wedding at Crooked Willow Farms in Larkspur, Colorado. With a soft palette of neutral colors, and whimsical touches of succulents, lanterns and moss, this design was ultimately decadent! With a stunning backdrop of the Rocky Mountains and seriously the best weather we could possibly ask for, their wedding was completely flawless!

Save the Date Events Visit to Perfect Petal

Denver Wedding Florist

On our continuous journey to stay familiar with our local industry and be on top of trends, our team made a visit to Perfect Petal‘s warehouse in Denver. Perfect Petal began as local florist shop in the Historic Highland district of Denver, serving up lovely bouquets and personal arrangements. They expanded to offer delicate soaps, jewelry, and housewares artfully selected for a beautiful presentation. Although the company is about to reach its 20 year anniversary, the owner, Cindy, and her team still believe in offering stunning and original flowers to anyone – no matter their budget.

We recently got a behind-the-scenes look at their stocked-to-the-top warehouse located just outside of the city – and oh my, were we impressed! As we walked in, our eyes were immediately drawn to the different light fixtures hanging from the ceilings, to the hundreds of vases on shelf after shelf, and to the tumbleweeds perched on a balcony (that curiously, have a pretty story around their procurement.)

What are some trends that the Perfect Petal team see for the future in wedding design? They predict that weddings will be moving away from the vintage look and mason jars. They are starting to see weddings incorporate the burnished beauty of mixed metals, smoky glass, earthy elements, and modern vessels such as acrylic cubes. They also see a beautiful play of watercolors and a ton of love for the color lavender coming into the wedding design esthetic.

Not only does Perfect Petal offer flowers and design consultations, but they have limitless access to this giant warehouse of goodies – which can range from doors, benches, and escort card holders to topiaries. We were incredibly impressed with their selection and love that we were able to learn more about their aesthetic and creative process.

Save the Date Event Team | Day in the Life

Throughout this year, the Save the Date Event’s Team has rolled up our sleeves to get down and dirty with some of our favorite venues and vendors. This month we took an inside look at Catering By Design and learned just how much work goes into every wedding or event, and every tasting.


We learned many amazing things during our tour at CBD, in particular their desire to source lots of products locally. They get almost all of their produce from Chatfield Botanic Gardens. The majority of their dairy items are produced locally. [They lovingly refer to a special menu called the “100-Mile Menu“. Every item from this menu comes from within a hundred-mile radius – and comes at a bit of a cost.]

In addition to loving what’s local, they also prioritize training for their staff – all of their chefs are trained by the chef/owner himself, Cade Nagy. CBD also has a creative side, with many rental items available for rental, a builder on-staff and an in-house florist.

We also got to spend some time in the kitchen and had the pleasure of prepping 150 chicken skewers, which gave us a deep appreciation for the labor-intensiveness that goes into completely prepping for an event. We did the math and estimated it took more than twice the time to prep an item it would take guests to consume in half the time at an event!!

What a great insight this tour was, thanks to Danielle at Catering by Design for giving us behind-the-scenes access.
