We always find it special when we are able to be a part of a couple’s wedding day, but we find it enchanting when the wedding is for one of the members of the #CallunaCrew! Last Friday our very own Michelle and her lovely fiancé tied the knot with a lovely Boulder wedding!
The day started and ended flawlessly and we could not have been more excited! Michelle + Adam gave their wedding a sweet personalized spin by adding in a bike theme, which included a gold bike at the entrance of the reception, bike wheels that were used as an escort card display, cute bike center pieces, and lastly bike horns that people used to signify they wanted the couple to kiss! Rachel with A Florae sprinkled in bright florals to the center pieces, beautiful bouquets, as well as striking boutonnieres!
Greens Point Catering met our guests at the Rembrandt Yard after a lovely ceremony at the Sacred Heart with scrumptious hors d’oeuvre and drinks, while the couple went with Ali + Garrett Photography to take some iconic Boulder shots with the Flatirons serving as the back drop. Guests were soon sat for dinner and after dinner guests enjoyed cake from Live Love Treat Yourself! Once dinner was fully wrapped up, Makeshift band kicked off and had everyone on the dance floor!
For a late night snack, guests were greeted by Michelle + Adam’s favorite ice cream truck, Sweet Cow! To top off the entire day, our very own Heather was a guest to the wedding pulling together our #CallunaCrew even more! It was a night to remember and we couldn’t be more excited for Michelle + Adam! Here’s to forever you two! xx, Calluna

When Calluna Events rebranded three years ago we called our dear friends at Anthem Branding in Boulder for help. Michael was put in charge of our account and during the time working with us he probably learned more about weddings that he ever wanted to! He was patient and friendly during our rebrand and website overhaul that when we heard Michael had proposed to his lovely girlfriend Haley we couldn’t wait to return the favor and help them with their plans to tie the knot. Michael and Haley are the sweetest couple and it was an honor working with them on the planning of their day and also being present to witness their truly authentic and wedding weekend.
Haley and Michael both work in the design + branding world and they created sweet and simple details that were well designed in an understated way. Their invitation suite with a “XO” brand set the tone for the wedding weekend at the spectacular Mt Princeton Hot Sprigs and they carried the “XO” seal throughout the day in places like the backdrop to their ceremony arch and in signage at the reception.
Haley was going for a bit of hand designed feel with the florals so she coordinated ahead of time with Steph from Lale and picked up most of the succulents and cactus which were placed on the reception tables on her own. Haley spent several months making little white pinch pots which held a succulent for each guest to take as a favor. The succulents were darling and added to the cactus, rocks and succulent centerpieces.
We picked up some of the ceremony and personal flowers from Lale Floral on Friday to help ensure they were fresh. Guests arrived Friday night and went to a welcome party followed by soaking in the natural hot springs. What a great way to start the weekend!
On Saturday guests hiked, or soaked and then assembled for their evening ceremony.In the absence of Lale Florals on site, we played florist and decorated the arch and delivered personal flowers and bouquets.
Their ceremony officiant was their friend Sara and Haley’s sister Natalie and Michael’s Best Woman Stephanie said beautiful words about the couple. It was one of the sweetest ceremonies we’ve witnessed in a while. Afterwards guests mingled on the lawn sipping specialty cocktails and playing corn hole and jenga and taking in the magical mountain backdrop. Dinner followed and some incredibly heartfelt toasts from friends and family. The music was on point all night from Ryan at Contour Audio and with Michael being a music buff the ambiance was spot on. Guests danced into the wee hours!
Wishing you both so much love and thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for letting us celebrate with you! xx Calluna

Kate + Greg’s wedding from last summer was certainly one of our favorites. Not only because of the sheer beauty this wedding contained but it also had such an amazing down-to-earth organic feel to it. Kate + Greg really honed into what they held near and dear to their heart during the planning process and incorporated that into their special day! Starting with the garden, the two of them built it from the ground up with a little help from their friends. This garden was exploding with the most beautiful flowers including some larger than life sunflowers that were to die for! Every little detail around every little corner was something that Kate + Greg had thought out, and had incorporated on purpose. That alone is always so special, it really makes a wedding day THAT much more special! We are so pleased to have received the real deal photos from Rebecca Caridad of Manzanita Photography. Take a moment and check them out and if you haven’t had enough of this exquisite couple, head over to Kate + Greg’s portfolio! xx, Calluna

What a ‘Stellabration’ it was, as Gemma + Alex tied the knot on Saturday in Boulder at the beautiful St. Julien Hotel and Spa.
As the Maid of Honor gave her toast, she read from emails that she and Gemma had exchanged about the evolution of Gemma’s relationship with Alex. Everyone’s eyes welled up with happy tears when they heard about Alex’s romantic gesture. According to the Maid of Honor, Alex filled every room in Gemma’s new apartment with flowers and stocked her fridge with all her favorite foods before she even moved in! If only everyone could love one another like Gemma and Alex do!
Fast forward to their wedding day … it was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have asked for better weather for our outdoor ceremony centered around a handcrafted cone backdrop made by our very own bride Gemma and her darling mother, Elaine. The backdrop consisted of over 1000 cones strung together, talk about DIY and it didn’t stop there!
As always our phenomenal vendors came together to wow Gemma and Alex in every possible. Every detail was exquisite from one of our favorite florists, Plum Sage Flowers in Denver to Nate and Jenny capturing all of the day’s highlights! The wonderful entertainment ranged from Scott Beach, the Colorado Bagpiper to A Great Time DJ who kept everyone on their feet all night!
Congratulations Gemma + Alex! xx, Calluna
