When we started working with Morgan and David to design their dream wedding at Beano’s Cabin in Beaver Creek, we knew we were in for a treat as soon as Morgan described her vision of being “a mountain wildflower, mom’s garden, spring meets summer, whimsical colorful dream come true!”
We immediately got to work, hand selecting a vendor team that would bring this vision to life, and boy did they deliver! Beaver Creek is a special place to Morgan and David – their family has a house up there, they spend their weekends there and it meant so much they brought our team along to share what makes it so special to them.
We kicked off the weekend with an intimate rehearsal dinner at Mirabelle Beaver Creek. Nestled in a vintage house right inside the main gates of the resort, guests gathered for dinner al fresco. While the rain might have had other plans, we rolled with the punches and it was the perfect kick-off to their weekend.
Finally, it was the wedding day! As we tracked another pesky Colorado storm, we were determined to execute as much of this wedding outside as possible and we’re sure glad we did. It turned out to be the most picturesque Colorado day. The ceremony was filled with florals from Alli J Floral that looked like they were growing straight out of the ground, the mountain wildflower, springs meets summer vibe came to life – all captured stunningly by Jess Leigh Photography.
Before walking inside, guests found their seats on a completely custom escort board from Knapp Design Co. that had custom watercolor sketches of all the places that meant something to the couple. As guests found their seats, they were taken to a room that had been transformed with more wildflowers, a showstopping cake by Katy Pierson Cakes and a five-star meal by the amazing chefs at Beano’s Cabin. At their seats, one of our favorite moments was the charger that doubled as a placemat, a menu and a place card. It was a fun way to add a pop of color to the table in a practical way.
After heartfelt speeches, guests made their way to the dance floor for a night of dancing under the stars to music by The Get Down and were able to stay close to the action if they wanted to take a break but beautiful lounges by Hazel Grove Rentals.
It was truly one of those that you’ll remember forever – we wish Morgan & David a lifetime of happiness!

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!

What is The Black Tux? A one stop shop for the best suit and tuxedo rentals for any wedding or black tie affair. Perfectly summed up by their company motto: “Black Tie Done Right”.
Why should I care? Tuxedo rentals are NOT a groundbreaking discovery. There are tons of tuxedo rentals out there. In fact, when you type in “tuxedo rental”, over a million results come up in less than a second. So – why should you care about this one brand in an arguably saturated market?
Well, in our opinion, BlackTux is the only way to go, for three reasons: price, quality and convenience, also known as the triple threat of wedding preparations.
Okay I’m in…How do I do it?
Enjoy Gentleman! xx, Calluna
