Classic Colorado Wedding at Devil’s Thumb Ranch | Wedding Recap | Jenna + Joe

We’re so thrilled to have officially kicked off the wedding season a few weeks ago at the always stunning Devil’s Thumb Ranch. Jenna, Joe and their families gathered in Tabernash to celebrate their wedding. We kicked off the weekend with a fiesta welcome party – it was Cinco de Mayo after all! Guests noshed on a fajita bar and drank margaritas. It was truly the perfect start to the weekend.

When guests woke up on Saturday morning in a slight panic – an unforecasted blanket of spring snow! As the day wore on and the sun came out – Jenna and Joe were truly blessed with the most beautiful spring weather. Sticking to a classic Colorado color palette, we incorporated whites and greens with subtle nods of black to give a little bit of an edge to the barn while still keeping in light and whimsical with stunning florals and ceiling greenery from the talented ladies at Plum Sage.

After guests dined on local Wagyu short rib and Colorado trout – they took to the dance floor for an epic night of dancing! We surprised guests with a surprise + delight moment – an electric violinist DJ fusion for a few fun minutes on the dance floor. After this crowd was danced out – they headed to the after-party where the fun continued with a custom shot-ski and late night burgers and fries!

It was the perfect way to officially kick off our summer season and we can’t wait to be back at The Ranch for more celebrations this year!

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!

Lesley and JD’s Four Seasons Denver wedding

Lesley & JD came to Calluna Events through Lesley’s stepsister Amy which made their business extra special – we love personal referrals! From the beginning we adored Lesley & JD’s vision for their day – to simply enjoy their wedding. To them this meant an intimate ceremony along side their closest friends and family, skipping the fuss of a full-blown reception. We planned an outdoor ceremony at the extraordinary Four Seasons pool deck followed by a chic, modern cocktail reception. Mother Nature had a mind of her own; although we were able to still hold the ceremony and part of the cocktail hour outside after a passing thunderstorm, we decided to move the remainder of the reception inside to keep guests dry and comfortable. Throughout the weather delays and changes Lesley remained calm and didn’t allow the rainstorms to dampen her spirits, a true testament to her holding onto the most important piece of the wedding day – marrying JD!

We worked with The Perfect Petal for the florals and decor.  This late summer wedding celebrated the warm, comfortable yet elegant style of the bride and groom with hues of raspberry, plum, gray and sunny saffron. Sequin linen, bold modern wood elements, interesting botanicals and contemporary ceramic vessels rounded out the look. The color palate was lighthearted and timeless with a sophisticated sensibility. A stunning yellow patterned aisle runner along with La Tavola New York silver sequin linen for the ceremony table provided an unexpected modern look.

We wish a lifetime of happiness for the amazing couple!
