Colorado Wedding Vendors
Wedding planning can be a lot of work but I believe that in the end it is well worth the investment of time and money! I hope this list of wedding professionals is helpful in finding the perfect vendors to work with for your wedding.
The following is a list of qualified wedding vendors I wouldn’t think twice about hiring to help me with my wedding. There are so many beautiful wedding venues, unique wedding cakes, stunning wedding dresses, and yummy caterers that I wish I could have a wedding each year! My only words of advice is to hire vendors you would want to invite to your wedding – people you trust, respect, and enjoy being around – because that is essentially what you are doing!
Since sustainability is important to me I have denoted which vendors have incorporated environmentally friendly practices into their business. Vendors who operate out of Colorado are denoted with the biker in the mountains.
I love talking weddings so feel free to give me a call to chat more!
|Queen Anne B&B: The Queen Anne B&B’s owner is extremely passionate about 3 things: community, sustainability and good food. It is for these reasons that I love the Queen Anne. It is probably my favorite local green business and the people there are incredibly hospitable. It is the perfect spot for an intimate backyard wedding or to spend your wedding night in one of their modern rooms.||www.QueenAnneBnB.com|
|910 Art Gallery: Nine10Arts, is an innovative fusion of art and green building. It’s 9-5 job is as an art gallery housed in a green built building but on the weekends it shines as a wedding reception venue. The women at 910 are great to work with and even let you bring in your own caterer or even cater the event yourself! It is a unique space and worth a look!||www.910arts.com|
|Pastures of Plenty: Pastures of Plenty is an ideal location for those of you looking to have a barn/rustic/farm wedding and has beautiful outdoor ceremony locations. You only have one choice for a caterer – them – but they serve up fantastic organic food from their farm so it really isn’t a downfall. I am excited to shoot two weddings at Pastures of Plenty next year!||www.pasturesofplentyfarm.com|
|Dunton Hot Springs Resort: I think this one might take the cake for me. I am a sucker for hot springs, wilderness, and being able to stay on site; all of which Dunton Hot Springs offers. Get this, Dunton Hot Springs is a restored ghost town set in an alpine valley, near to Telluride. It retains its original character with a little European flair. AND you have to cross a gated bridge to enter the town… please have your wedding here and ask me to be your photographer – it sounds so beautiful! Yep, if I were to redo my wedding it would be here. Need… to… tear myself away from the photos…||www.duntonhotsprings.com|
|Denver Botanic Gardens: Whether you are interested in a rustic outdoor wedding (They have a barn!) or an intimate garden wedding the Denver Botanic Gardens can accommodate you. Bonus – you can save on decorations, the gardens are always beautiful! The folks there are great to work with, everyone seems to love their job. Their caterer is eco-friendly!||www.botanicgardens.org|
Wedding Planners & Stylists
|Calluna Events: Calluna Events has a whole team of awesome planners to help with whatever style wedding you choose – though I think they are at their best when designing big, modern, stylish events. All the ladies I have worked with there have been extremely welcoming and they have been around a long time so have a lot of experience. |

|Love This Day Events: I love the energy at Love This Day. They show a lot of genuine interest into couples visions. The ladies over there are very creative and have a feminine and rustic touch to their wedding styles. They also do great floral arrangements! |

|Pink Champagne: If you are looking for a soft romantic vibe for your wedding Pink Champagne is the perfect planner and stylist for you. Their weddings and planners are sweet, friendly, and very well organized.||http://pinkchampagneevents.com/|
|Celeste Greene: I personally love Celeste’s style…. everything feels so inspired by nature and is very down to earth. I love all the textures and natural colors she incorporates. It feels very timeless and organic and makes me feel connected to both the earth and my heritage.||http://celestegreene.com|
|Joy Thigpin: Joy is an amazing creative director, stylist, and planner. She has even been known to design dresses and floral arrangements. Her style is soft, feminine, and organic. Her eye for details is amazing and is truly the whole package.||http://joythigpen.com/|
|Pearl & Godiva: This duo creates some truly stunning weddings. If you are looking for inspiration you will be able to find it here. The weddings the create are original and timeless, organic and stunning, and have a European flair to them. Simply stunning.||www.greenappleweddings.com|
|Y. Lo Epicure Catering: I actually have never eaten Y. Lo Epicure’s food but, after browsing their site, I am pretty sure I like them. They have a wide range of offerings and serve up local organic food on recycled or compostable trays.||www.yloepicure.com|
|Catering Consciously: Catering Consciously is the whole package when it comes to eco-minded caterers. They are a no-waste caterer serving up local, organic, seasonal and sustainable cuisine.||www.cateringconsciously.com|
Wedding Cakes and Desserts
|Lovely Confections: How is Lovely Confections eco-minded? The list goes on and on. Porche is definitely passionate about sustainable foods and there is no “green washing” here – she is dedicated to sustainability and it shows in almost every aspect of her business. She doesn’t compromise design for sustainability though – her cupcakes are so darn cute!||www.lovelyconfectionsbakery.com|
|Shamanes Bake Shoppe: Like Lovely Confections, Shamane’s list of how they are going green goes on and on – including an in-house garden! Plus they are one of the only “sustainably-minded” caterers I found who compost! Maybe I should fake another wedding to go do some taste testing.||www.shamanesbakeshoppe.com|
|Plum Sage Flowers: From what I can tell, Plum Sage flowers are unique in their category. I haven’t found another florist who prefers to source local, organic flowers. To top if off they also implement earth friendly business practices. I can’t wait to shoot more of their wonderful designs!||www.plumsageflowers.com|
