Western Chic Wedding in Vail, Colorado | Wedding Recap | Sofia + Guillermo

Colorado is such a special place to our darling bride and groom, Sofia + Guillermo! Sofia’s family has a house in Vail, so hosting their wedding in the Vail Valley was a priority for them! From the beginning, they focused on a large celebration with 300+ in attendance with a traditional Catholic service at Vail Chapel, followed by an epic dance party that made all their friends from Miami proud! The weekend started with a welcome dinner at Matsuhisa Vail, featuring Colorado bluegrass and country duo, Austin’s Rose and delicious sushi provided by the best in Vail! The next evening featured a rehearsal party at Four Seasons Vail where guests donned western attire and were led through Vail Village in second line style by their guitarist and ended up at an after party!

The wedding day saw a traditional Catholic service at Vail Chapel where Sofia wore a gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown and said I do to her forever. Followed by their tented wedding reception at Larkspur Vail that was dressed to the nines in all the Colorado fashion. Guests arrived and were immediately treated to cocktails on the lawn, where lounges doted the landscape by Eclectic Hive and organic florals in yellow + white tones by The Perfect Petal! Guests were soon invited into the tent as Sofia + Guillermo were announced by DJ Rascal for a lovely dinner and then they danced the night away!

This wedding was one for the books and we are still not over it! Sofia + Guillermo, their families, their friends, and their vendor team had such a loving, joyful energy that was completely contagious and something we will always remember!

Moody Mardi Gras Wedding in Aspen | Wedding Recap | Lauren + Eren

When Lauren and Eren came to us they wanted a winter wedding tucked in the mountains of Aspen on April 3, 2021 we went to designing a special day for them, their families, and their adorable pugs! Then, like many of our other couples, COVID derailed their original wedding plans and they gracefully postponed their wedding to April 2022. They were still determined to get married on their original date and so they flew from their home in Rhode Island across the country with their pugs, Cooper and Bailey to Palm Springs for an epic elopement captured by the talented Nate Shepard Photography.
When it came time to start planning again, another variant of COVID was quickly sweeping the nation and we decided to pivot from our original venue to the courtyard of St. Regis Aspen and we would’t have had it any other way! Lauren + Eren had a magical first look at the top of Aspen Mountain, overlooking the breathtaking views slope-side where they stumbled upon “Snow Beach,” an epic lifeguard stand art installation by Gray Malin in partnership with The Little Nell and we just couldn’t help ourselves but take advantage of the moment! All dressed up, they both climbed to the top of Snow Beach and shared a few moments taking in the views at that epic vantage point. On the most picture-perfect bluebird sky day, Lauren + Eren finally said “I do!” with all their loved ones in attendance at Aspen Meadows, with gorgeous snowcapped mountains as the backdrop of their stunning ceremony. Bringing a bit of NOLA to Aspen, guests followed the newlyweds and the Brass Animals second line as they made their way from the ceremony to cocktail hour at the St. Regis for more fun!
Guests were welcomed into the fancy reception dressed to the nines with moody velvet vignettes, gorgeous florals by The Perfect Petal, and sparkling chandeliers that lit the space. We loved playing with this Mardi Gras type of color palette with silky blues, wines, and emeralds with black and gold accents and warm woods all brought to life with lovely decor by Wallflower Rentals and stunning velvet draping and lighting by Little Mad Events. At each place setting, eclectic floral menus by Scarlet Gilia Creative sat pretty atop stoneware plates and beaded chargers with florals dancing throughout the table lit by candles. The eatery had lots of fun nods to Lauren + Eren’s darling relationship with delectable lobster rolls in honor of New England where they call home and New Orleans-style shrimp and grits as a nod to their days at Tulane University where they met, fell in love, and got engaged! Guests had the time of their lives as they enjoyed sippin’ champagne in front of the fun neon sign that read, ’till death do us party!’ and a rockin’ dance floor with DJ Tony from The Get Down! We so loved sharing in this day with Lauren & Eren and wish them a lifetime of love, happiness, and pugs!

TOP COLORADO WEDDING VENUES of 2022 | MOUNTAIN VENUES

This week we’re focusing our venue love on the mountains! With views of endless mountain ranges, sweeping valleys, and rivers and lakes, it’s no wonder Colorado is quickly becoming a destination couples flock to! We’ve been so fortunate to plan some amazing weddings and events at these venues and can’t wait for more to come at these breathtaking destinations.

Many of our clients find that the mountains are the perfect destination and love bringing their guests to the beauty of the Rockies for their wedding weekend. We couldn’t agree more! While it feels impossible to narrow down our favorite destinations – please enjoy some of our favorites below!

Xo, Calluna


EAGLE COUNTY (Vail, Edwards, Beaver Creek)

Sonnenalp (Vail, CO)
Why We Love The Sonnenalp: The Sonnenalp is timelessly Vail! This luxury alpine hotel offers a beautiful partly glassed in dining room, that brings in beautiful light for a reception. Picture a ceremony right in front of Gore Creek, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars. It’s the perfect mix of alpine-modern! Ludwig’s glass enclosed terrace is a dream too and is where Meghan and Chris’ absolutely gorgeous reception took place. We are always so excited to be back at the Sonnenalp!

The 10th (Vail, CO)
Why We Love The 10th: This one of a kind venue is an iconic Vail wedding site. With high-quality service and views that *literally* take our breath away, this special destination is so close to our hearts. The restaurant looks over the Gore Range at Vail mid-mountain providing the most epic dance party backdrop you can imagine.

Four Seasons Vail (Vail, CO)
Why We Love the Four Seasons Vail: Nestled in the heart of downtown Vail, you can still come home to the familiar and exceptional caliber of Four Seasons. Call this beautiful hotel a home base for your guests or enjoy one of the many versatile spaces for your weekend celebrations (including their newly renovated ballroom – hello!!). Last year we had the joy of planning Russ + Paula’s wedding reception at Four Seasons Vail with a ten piece orchestra you don’t want to miss out on!

Calluna Event’s Real Wedding | Paula + Russ | Photography by Alp & Isle

Larkspur (Vail, CO)
Why We Love Larkspur: “Our award-winning restaurant is situated in Vail at the base of Golden Peak and the views don’t get much better. In the winter and early spring, the snowy slopes of Vail Mountain are literally steps away from our patio. From late spring through fall, Larkspur’s lush, green event lawn is surrounded by Aspen groves and stunning views of the majestic Gore Range.” They have both indoor, outdoor patio, and outdoor lawn options, so it is perfect for a reception, ceremony, or both! We loved planning  Zoe + Pete’s and so many other weddings here!

Vail Wedding Deck + Arrabelle Square (Vail, CO)
Why We Love the Vail Wedding Deck and Arrabelle Square: We were over the moon planning Brooke + Christian’s romantic mountain wedding here (look at those views!), and love that the Wedding Deck has 360 degree views of the Vail Valley (!!!). Travel by gondola for the valley’s quintessentially mountain backdrop to say “I Do” for your ceremony and then head back down the mountain to Arrabelle Square. We love opting for the tent so you can dance the night away under the twinkle lights in the middle of the town square – central yet intimate.

Camp Hale (Vail, CO)
Why We Love Camp Hale: Camp Hale is every bit of mountain magic – complete with a waterfront ceremony and a backdrop of 12,000 foot mountain peaks. It’s nestled in aspen and pine trees, and located just up the hill from Vail (about 30 minutes by car). We were so happy we could got to celebrate Abby + Kevin’s big day at this stunning spot. We can’t wait to be back later this summer!

The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch (Beaver Creek, CO)
Why We Love The Ritz Carlton Bachelor Gulch: The Ritz Carlton offers a wide range of venues that can cater to each couple! These venues offer a blend of rustic outdoor settings overlooked by mountains, elegant indoor ballrooms, and restaurant and lounge spaces to host smaller intimate affairs. Our favorite? A striking sailcloth tent at the base of the mountain that will quite literally take your (and your guests!) breath away.

Saddleridge (Beaver Creek, CO)
Why We Love Saddleridge: While offering all of the beautiful scenery of Beaver Creek, Saddleridge also offers that authentic Colorado experience, with their vaulted ceilings, western artifacts and mountain views that go on and on! Rich with historical knick knacks, this venue is not your classic ballroom – and we love that. Don’t sleep on Saddleridge!

Beano’s Cabin (Beaver Creek, CO)
Why We Love Beano’s Cabin: Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek is a Calluna tried and true favorite. The cabin is nestled on the mountain with a beautiful interior and equally stunning views of the mountain. Beaver Creek is the perfect destination with plenty of delicious restaurants, scenic hikes and adventurous activities! One of our all-time favorite weddings was at Beano’s – check it out!

Zach’s Cabin (Bachelor Gulch, CO)
Why We Love Zach’s Cabin: “Perched on the mountainside high above Bachelor Gulch with the uninterrupted views of the magnificent Gore Range, Zach’s is the epitome of fine dining at its peak.  Guests are whisked away for a starlit sleigh ride, pulled by a Beaver Creek Snow Cat. Famous for its artful assemblage of fresh Rocky Mountain fare featuring the finest regional and seasonal ingredients paired with excellent vintages for the perfect dinner experience.” Need way say more!?!? We were thrilled to have planned Mackenzie + Tom’s winter wedding here!

Park Hyatt Beaver Creek  (Beaver Creek, CO)
Why We Love The Park Hyatt Beaver Creek: A new-to-us venue for the 2021 season, we’ve been quick to fall in love with this hotel at the base of the mountain. We love the versatility of the event spaces (Crooked Hearth for a more intimate feel or rehearsal dinner!) and their ceremony views are something to write home about – whatever the season. We had so much fun planning Jenny + Mason’s wedding here last year, where they skied into their ceremony! It was epic!

PITKIN COUNTY (Aspen, Basalt, Snowmass)

The Little Nell (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love The Little Nell: The Little Nell is the epitome of luxury and getting married here would be an unforgettable experience. Looking for epic views? Check. World class service? Check. A phenomenal party like no other? Check, check check. “The experience waiting for you as you step off Aspen’s Silver Queen Gondola may be reason enough to exchange vows. Floating three miles above the town of Aspen but just steps from The Little Nell, our Wedding Deck is a venue unlike anything else in Colorado. At an elevation of 11,212 feet, with sweeping views of the Elk Mountain Range, it doesn’t get much more romantic.” We loved this top of mountain moment last year at Shelby + Ben’s wedding!

Hotel Jerome (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love Hotel Jerome: “Located in the heart of Aspen with a unique blend of contemporary luxury and historic heritage, deluxe Aspen Resort accommodations, superb amenities, genuine hospitality and dedicated service for an elevated experience in the Rocky Mountains. With stunning views of Aspen Mountain and affording convenient access to downtown, the Hotel Jerome featuring Aspen’s only above-ground ballroom is the ideal event venue for an effortlessly elegant wedding or special event.” We can’t wait to be here next year for Nicole + David’s wedding!

The St. Regis Aspen (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love The St. Regis Aspen: Located at the base of Aspen mountain, The St. Regis will provide your guests with the ultimate “Aspen” experience. A St. Regis wedding means luxury, comfort and unforgettable memories. Just steps away from the slopes and the amazing bars and restaurants of Aspen, the location of the St. Regis could not be more ideal. Page + Scott’s big day was on for the storybooks and we couldn’t imagine a better destination to celebrate them.

Calluna Event’s Real Wedding | Page + Scott| Photography by Kate Holstein Photography

T Lazy 7 (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love T Lazy 7: “T-Lazy-7 Ranch is home to three of Aspen’s premier event venues. You can customize your own a twinkle-lit tented reception in the stunning T-Lazy-7 Meadow, or pair a Meadow ceremony with the elegant T-Lazy-7 Event Lodge for the reception dinner and dancing. If you’re looking for a more authentic hoe-down experience, cozy around the campfire at our covered outdoor facility known as the Chuckwagon Grounds. T-Lazy-7 Ranch is a spectacular setting for any event and is surrounded by National Forest and Wilderness for stunning photo backdrops.” We love this place and are beyond thrilled to celebrate our very own lead planner Lindsay + Ken’s wedding here in September!

Aspen Meadows (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love the Aspen Meadows: Say I do in front of gorgeous snow-capped mountains! “The Aspen Meadows Resort offers an unsurpassed level of elegance and sophistication. Everything from the stunning mountain view and warm, relaxing atmosphere to our personalized service creates the perfect backdrop for your special day!” Our lovely Lauren + Eren had their ceremony here then their reception at Aspen Art Museum in April and it was absolutely stunning!

Calluna Event’s Real Wedding | Lauren + Eren | Photography by Nate Shepard

Aspen Art Museum (Aspen, CO)
Why We Love the Aspen Art Museum: “The iconic Shigeru Ban–designed Aspen Art Museum’s Level 3 presents a dynamic and adaptable entertainment space for an array of gatherings (including weddings!) Set atop the internationally acclaimed contemporary art museum and adjacent to the museum’s Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, the AAM’s Level 3 offers unparalleled panoramic views of Aspen’s surrounding Ajax, Red Mountain, and Independence Pass landscapes.” Just take a peek at Audrey + Neil’s wedding and you’ll get why it’s such a dream destination!

THROUGHOUT THE STATE AND BEYOND 

Dunton Hot Springs (Dunton, CO)
Why We Love Dunton Hot Springs: Right outside of Telluride, nestled in the San Juan Mountains this up to date ghost town is a Calluna favorite. This intimate property includes hand built log cabins and luxury glamping. Dunton offers a variety of activities around the property and we can guarantee this will be an experience your guests will never forget. Be sure to check out Holly + Matt’s summertime wedding at Dunton Hot Springs and Meshach + Warren’s winter wedding here!

Flying Diamond Ranch (Steamboat Springs, CO)
Why We Love Flying Diamond Ranch: This ranch right outside of Steamboat Springs is truly magical. The views are spectacular and the land is vast. Perfect for any nature lover, Flying Diamond is a beautiful blank canvas. “Picturesque aspen groves and open fields framed by forests and mountains with sweeping, majestic views of the Steamboat Ski Area create a stunning space to host magical and very private Colorado weddings, parties, and events.” We are still in awe Brenna + Jeff’s wedding and are so excited for Kendall + Chris’ wedding here this summer!

Calluna Event’s Real Wedding | Brenna + Jeff | Photography by Laura Murray

Devil’s Thumb Ranch (Tabernash, CO)
Why We Love Devil’s Thumb Ranch: The Calluna team adores Devil’s Thumb and consider it one of our most popular wedding venue destinations of the state. The combination of sprawling ranch views for days, onsite guest lodging for a weekend adventure experience, plenty of leisure activities year round and the most beautiful beautiful barn perfect for wedding festivities is the most incredible combination to bring your celebration to life. We’ve planned countless events throughout the seasons in this special place and can’t wait for all the fun to come!

Brush Creek Ranch (Saratoga, Wyoming)
Why We Love Brush Creek Ranch: Our love for this pocket of heaven on earth runs deep. “Time seems to stand still at Brush Creek Ranch, a collection of all-inclusive guest ranches in Wyoming. It’s a place where beautiful sunsets and starlit night skies instill wonder. Immerse yourself with the true spirit of the authentic American West…” Brush Creek Ranch offers the best of both worlds – luxury mixed with the authentic American Western experience – in a way you’ve never seen before. Hampton + Michael, Ashley + Peter, Brie + Ben, as well as O+R are some of our favorite weddings we’ve done at Brush Creek Ranch! We’ll be back at the ranch in just a few weeks for Robin + Marco’s wedding too!

Surf Hotel (Buena Vista, CO)
Why We Love Surf Hotel: “Beyond breathtaking views, stylish guest rooms and the vibrant community just steps from our door, the Surf Hotel’s amenities and services provide a number of unique options for your special celebration. From a charming ground floor restaurant to a spectacular outdoor courtyard and onsite ballroom, our spaces were designed to adapt to a wide range of events. No matter the style or format of your wedding, our hospitality begins in the planning process, as we help you curate your unique vision for a day (or several days) of mountain town elegance.” We loved planning Taylor + Phil’s romantic micro-wedding here last year!

Juniper Mountain House (Evergreen, CO)
Why We Love Juniper Mountain House: “Juniper Mountain House offers a variety of unique gathering spaces. With 10 acres of dynamic indoor and outdoor spaces, we aim to create truly memorable experiences for you and your group of up to 60 people. As a small boutique hotel, we only offer two to three wedding slots per month, which means your day will truly be one of a kind.”

Wyman Hotel (Silverton, CO)
Why We Love The Wyman Hotel: We had the pleasure and privilege to be hosted by The Wyman Hotel, a relatively new boutique hotel in the southwestern town of Silverton, Colorado. The makers behind The Wyman describe it as “a 1902 landmark building which has been reimagined with the comforts and amenities of an urban boutique hotel and is a welcoming, thoughtfully appointed space, perfect for artists, creatives, and adventurers.” We couldn’t come up with a better description if we tried. Each detail was perfectly in place, making our stay feel both comfortable and inspired.  For our clients looking for an outside the box, western chic experience – this is the spot for you.  Read more from our visit here!

Audrey + Neil | Beautiful Golden Aspen Fall Wedding

After years of dating and parenting their fur baby Ralph, Audrey and Neil said “I Do” among the golden Aspen trees at John Denver Sanctuary. Aspen is a special place to both Audrey and Neil, so they opted for the prime leaf changing weekend in September. Guests flew in from around the country (and world!) and were treated to fabulous fall weather.
Surrounded by their family and friends, Audrey and Neil delivered heartfelt vows that brought tears to our eyes. Audrey radiated in her Enzoani gown with her classic bouquet from Aspen Branch.
After the ceremony, guests were invited to sip on tasty wine and snacks before heading over to the modern reception at the Aspen Art Museum. It was the perfect night, and guests enjoyed their drinks and food out on the stunning terrace of the museum.
Heartfelt toasts, delicious cake, and an epic dance party make this wedding one we will never forget.

Real Wedding :: Danielle & Adam’s Modern Snowmass wedding

Danielle and Adam were such an amazing couple! Danielle came to us with a modern vision and a love of Aspen and we were so excited to help turn that vision into a reality. They chose to have their wedding at the Viceroy in Snowmass, just outside of Aspen.

The ceremony took place on the Vista Lawn overlooking the incredible Snowmass valley that was lined with golden Aspen trees. The aisle was lined with florals and lanterns made by the uber talented Lale Florals. Joel Davis officiated the ceremony with sweet, heartfelt words that were written by the bride. I’ve never heard so much laughter during a ceremony! It was truly reflective of the couple, their humor and their love for each other.  We adored every moment of it!

img_0019

After the ceremony, guests ventured to the Viceroy pool deck to enjoy a cocktail hour full of libations and delicious bites. The dinner took place inside of Eight K and guests were treated to a delicious meal. The Viceroy staff really knows how to make an incredible dinner!  Our favorite part? The delicious and decadent chocolate cake made by the Viceroy pastry chef, Ashley.

img_0021

There was no shortage of attention details from Danielle. Another sweet touch was the donation to breast cancer in leu of favors as a tribute to Danielle’s mother. Guests then danced the night away with beats by DJ Jahsonic.

Congratulations to D&A! We were so happy to be a part of your day!

We can’t wait to see the real deal photos from Gillespie Photography! Until then, enjoy a few snaps from our iPhones.
