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!


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.


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.

Jessica + James’ Modern Art Museum Wedding

We were over the moon to share some sneak peek photos from Jessica + James’ showstopping Aspen wedding earlier this year.

Lucky for us, we now have the pleasure of sharing all the photos from that magical day! Everything from the rich blue hues throughout the entire wedding to the marvelous bride in her jaw dropping Amsale dress had our hearts aflutter. Simply put, this wedding was the perfect wedding fairytale with a modern twist, and we felt oh so lucky to be a part of such a beautiful day!

Real Wedding: Modern Art Museum Aspen Wedding

Show stopping Aspen mountain views – check; ultra modern Art Museum venue – check; chic blue + white + gold palate – check; a beautiful celebration of love – check check. We are pretty sure we had just about every element needed for a dream wedding this weekend.

Jessica + James came to us with an fantastic mountain wedding vision and let us take the reins in the styling department. We worked hand in hand with Frances from Prema to hand curate each detail of this fabulous fete – incorporating gorgeous blues, whites and golds to be accented by Manzanita calligraphy, a gold-gilded ceremony backdrop from Yonder, hand dyed runners all under the exquisite walls of the Aspen Art Museum.

When Matt Speck, photographer extraordinare, showed us a few teaser shots we couldn’t wait to share with you. Between shots of Jessica’s dreamy Amsale gown and the breathtaking museum shots, we’re are on wedding cloud nine. Thank you for sharing, Matt!

Colorado weddings: Happy anniversary to these Calluna Events couples!


Colorado weddings are amazing, and we speak from first hand experience! Not only do we plan the weddings of lovely brides and grooms, we travel all over Colorado to work at many of the best Colorado wedding venues! In the past few months a few Calluna Events brides and grooms have celebrated their first, second and 6th wedding anniversaries!


Happy 2nd anniversary! It’s not every day one of your best friends gets married and you get to help her with her wedding! Lindsay has been a dear friend for many years and I was so happy for her when she found Judd and they decided to tie the knot in Lindsay’s home town of Aspen, Colorado. Lindsay, a lifetime ski racer and mountain-lover, found the perfect venue for her wedding at the world famous ski-in/ski-out Pine Creek Cookhouse. Guests had the option of skiing to the wedding or nestling up on a beautiful horse drawn sleigh. Read more about their wedding gorgeous winter wedding here!




HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY! One year ago we worked side by side with Virginia and Jeff on the day of their snowy Aspen wedding. Happy one year anniversary you two! We thought we’d relive the memories from this time last year.

It’s truly an honor when another wedding planner as us to assist with their wedding plans. So when Virginia of Bluebird Productions, an Aspen based wedding and event planning company asked us to help with the final details and Day of Coordination for her stunning Aspen wedding we were beyond humbled and truly excited to partner with her on her big day. To see their full wedding on our website go here.

HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! We had so much fun planning their wedding almost entirely with the bride’s mother, Nual. We aimed to merge Nual’s vision for an elegant and stylish wedding with the bride and grooms quirky and fun personalities. The result was a fabulously fun party amidst elegant florals, incredible food and fantastic décor at the St. Julien Hotel & Spa. See more of Nelissa & Cedar’s wedding here!

HAPPY 4TH ANNIVERSARY! Joanne & Jake are the type of people you can’t help but admire. They are the creative types. Adventurers. Authentic, no holds barred. All with the sort of humility that many aspire to but few attain. Joanne is a well-traveled, sharp-shooting architect. Jake – the Editor-in-Chief of Skiing Magazine: see also witty journalist disguised as a ski bum. Put the two together, give them a map – and you’ve got a story worth listening to. Sit down. Grab a beer. They will make you laugh. Read more about Joanne & Jake’s wedding here!

Virginia + Jeff’s wintry Aspen wedding

Private Residence :: Aspen, CO

It’s truly an honor when another wedding planner as us to assist with their wedding plans. So when Virginia of Bluebird Productions, an Aspen based wedding and event planning company asked us to help with the final details and Day of Coordination for her stunning Aspen wedding we were beyond humbled and truly excited to partner with her on her big day.

Prior to opening Bluebird Productions with her business partner Chelsea, Virginia worked at the Little Nell, one of Aspen’s most luxurious hotel properties. Her background and connections there allowed she and Chelsea to seamlessly open Bluebird and they have a young but thriving event planning business that competes with some of the best planners in all of the state. It was no surprise that Virginia teamed up with some of the best of the best in the wedding industry in Colorado for her April wedding.

We were on site the week of to manage the full production and set up of the platform and tent installation as well as major lighting, draping and AV from Halcyon Productions. The multi day installation saw some challenges at the private residence due to a last minute snow storm. However all the vendors, along with some of Jeff’s friends from the Aspen Fire Department, rallied and coordinated the set up seamlessly. Rentals were provided by both Event Rents Denver and Bethel Rentals in Aspen. The delicious course dinner was provided by ASC Aspen. Bobby Yang came in to perform for the dinner and reception and it was such as treat to see him live!

And the light flurries of snow during the ceremony was welcomed, as Virginia and Jeff really wanted a wintry spring wedding!
