Event Planners Wear Capes Too! 

People tell me all the time that they planned their own wedding and the one thing they wished they had done differently was to hire an event planner. Even the most perfect weddings have a fire burning somewhere behind the curtain. 

Planning Brittany + Colby's wedding was a blast as always, especially since the couple made the trip out to Colorado! But of course things happen, especially when the anticipation of getting married is involved. Luckily, I was there to help in anyway I could! 

Here are a few examples of why you should hire an event planner: 

When the cake was forgotten, I ordered one 2 hours before the wedding, put some flowers and a cake topper on it and it was as good as the cake they imagined it to be. 

When the best man forgot the rings in the cabin, mid-ceremony I ran into the cabin to go find those so the wedding could continue. 

When the ring bearer was too scared to walk down the isle I told him to put his really awesome sunglasses on and pretend he was invisible. 

But the thing was, these things happen in every wedding! And in the end, the day was perfect. Everyone still got their cake, they still danced, they still got to celebrate with friends and family and most importantly still got married! 

I feel very fortunate to be apart of their big day! Thank you Brittany and Colby, I wish you both the best in your journey and life!

Tiffany + Nelson | October 8th, 2016 | The Mishawaka Amphitheatre

Tiffany and Nelson have a strong connection when it comes to the Poudre River and the venue that sits alongside it, The Mishawaka Amphitheatre. The two of them met in the summer of 2005, as Nelson was a river rafting guide on the Poudre and Tiffany was the photographer. After many years’ of dating and an engagement, they felt that the Historic Mishawaka Amphitheatre was the perfect venue for their wedding. As an outdoor music and wedding venue, there is so much magic that happens at The Mish!

Tiffany and Nelson wanted to embrace the Colorado Mountains the venue is surrounded by, and added a rustic theme to the event. They loved the feeling of using wooden country chairs and long farm tables, decorated beautifully by homemade centerpieces made from cut logs, moss and candles. Gorgeous floral arrangements were arranged by Lace and Lilies.

When the ceremony began, they chose to get married alongside the river that they met at while all their friends and family gathered around. Encased in the mountains and trees that surround the venue, Nelson kissed his bride and the reception began. Delicious appetizers from Juli Y Juan were served while their event planner, Taylor, of Mountainside Events and the Mishawaka team transformed the venue from ceremony to reception.

Shortly after toasts and speeches- the dance party began! Music from Colorado band, The Burroughs filled the stage and not a single person was sitting. Guests had some fun by walking up to the VIP deck where an outdoor photo booth took place and stopped by the delicious dessert table for a cupcake from B Sweet Cupcakes.

The party went long into the night, under the stars as Tiffany and Nelson celebrated their big day!
