St. Regis Aspen Wedding :: Vanessa + Avery

There is something that makes winter weddings extra romantic… whether it be the striking sunlight hitting the white snow or the quiet crackle of the fireplace mid-ceremony, the Calluna girls have a special place in our hearts for couples that wed in the chillier months. Vanessa and Avery was a couple who stole our hearts with their elegant St Regis Aspen wedding. Their impeccable style made for one of the most beautiful weddings we’ve ever, ever seen.

With the stunning backdrop of fresh snow and bluebird skies, Aspen Mountain set the tone for the clear tent we set up in the St Regis courtyard for the wedding ceremony, complete with real crystal chandeliers, light carpeting, sheer draping, big blooming branches, and faux fur throws for the guests to bundle up in.

Vanessa and Avery are a very special sort of couple, whose style and vision transcends all decades, trends, and traditions. They came to us in October, ready and willing to begin planning a timeless Aspen Winter Wedding the following January. From day one, the emphasis was on the entire guest experience and keeping the mood very intimate so everyone can celebrate the couple over the long holiday weekend.

After the ceremony, guests were invited into the transformed Trecento restaurant, which the couple chose instead of the ballroom to maintain the intimacy. Filled to the brim with floral accents, crisp linen, and tons of candlelight, the couple entered the ballroom to cheers from the guests and went straight into the Jewish Hora dance, to set a fun mood of love, laughter, and merrymaking.

The bride wore a stunning, form-fitting Oscar de La Renta gown with custom silk gloves and the groom looked dapper in a sharp, black tuxedo. Guests partied late into the night at this momentous celebration and the hand-picked decor and details will surely stand the test of time.

Vanessa + Avery :: Instagram Sneak Peek :: A Winter Wonderland Wedding

In case you haven’t checked our social media outlets recently, we wanted to share our weekend with you – a wonderful, elegant winter wonderland wedding at the magnificent St Regis in Aspen, Colorado.

We truly adored Vanessa and Avery, the lovely couple, and we were so happy to have had a chance to work with them and their families. With a team of extraordinary vendors (The Perfect Petal, LMD Productions, the staff at the St. Regis, DJ Fred, Robin Proctor Photography, Pink Monkey Solutions, Eclectic Hive, Caribou Club, and KHodge Films) we were able to bring their wedding vision to life and be a part of a very special event. We also rented linens from BBJ, La Tavola, and Wildflower Linen and had printed paper goods from Sweet Letterpress and calligraphy from Designsgirl.

We’re so excited to show you some of the details from the weekend, but we promise to keep you posted with photos and the video when they come along!

To everyone who helped make this day so special – thank you! It was a wedding and a weekend to remember!

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!
