We had the best time working with Danielle, Chad and their families to plan and design their destination wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado on New Years Eve. They traveled to Colorado twice before the wedding to attend vendor consultations and mock-ups that we scheduled in advance and attended with our lovely clients.
Danielle had a good feel for the overall style when we started planning her Colorado wedding. She loved black and pink and wanted to incorporate the damask print. We created an elegant atmosphere along with a bit of whimsy for the New Years Eve wedding.
The ceremony took place at Beaver Creek Chapel in the evening. It was a very romantic evening ceremony with many candles lighting the chapel. Guests were transported to the reception at the Westin Riverfront Resort for a wonderful cocktail hour followed a grand reveal of the gorgeous pink ballroom. After a sumptuous seated dinner, guests LOVED the candy buffet and danced the night away until the traditional New Years Eve countdown when we handed out fun party props.
Watch the fabulous video highlights here:

Rachael and Kanit were married in June at the gorgeous Della Terra Mountain Chateaux. When coming up with a design for their wedding, they wanted to incorporate modern and unique style with a bit of Asian influence. We absolutely loved working with them over the past year to plan their destination wedding in Colorado. Rachael was so relaxed and easy going during the planning process. She was truly a dream to work with and we love keeping in touch with her and Kanit.

Expert Help – Don’t go it alone. Never plan a destination wedding completely on your own. In doing so, you are risking disappointments like your cake not showing up, choosing the less-than-ideal location, your flowers being late, etc. Consider hiring a professional experienced planner who has your best interests in mind. The time and peace of mind you receive will be well worth the expense.
Trust Your Expert Help – Once you hire your planner and vendors, trust them. You’ve found the best vendors to handle your day. Trust your judgment and their guidance, especially in a location where you may or may not have visited. While things like what time the sun sets behind the mountains and the effects of altitude may not be of concern to you, it will definitely be on the mind of your wedding planner as well as your other vendors, who are ultimately there to ensure you have a flawless wedding day.
