Western Chic Wedding in Vail, Colorado | Wedding Recap | Sofia + Guillermo

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!

Rachael + Brendan | Classic Vail Summer Wedding

Rachael + Brendan’s love is something for the storybooks. These high school sweethearts have been together over a decade and their love is so solid, families so intertwined, community so supportive. Two of the kindest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, this duo opted for a classic Colorado wedding at the gorgeous Sonnenalp hotel in the heart of Vail Village. Rachael – an event planning pro on her own – curated her clean design with thoughtful pops of personality and color (look at that fun cake!).  With a perfect combination of florals from Rooted Floral Design, paper goods from Nib + Berry and romantic string lighting by Elite, the space was both welcoming and beautiful!

The two said their forever vows in a romantic ceremony accompanied by 140 of their closest friends and family and sweet pup Watson. As the daylight dimmed and celebrations ramped up, this party crowd flooded the floor and danced under the open sky to Diamond Empire Band and loved on this amazing couple all night long. 

R + B –– we adore you and wish you all the love in the world!!

Zoe + Pete | Vail Larkspur Summer Wedding

When designing for Zoe and Pete, we imagined a glamour filled, mountain modern, black tie affair. The wedding was everything and more! This romantic fete was filled with personal touches – both chic and quirky – to make it a complete reflection of Zoe + Pete’s love story. 

Highlights included the most stunning Ines Di Santo wedding gown, Zoe’s dad officiating their heartfelt ceremony, family joining ceremony musicians for a beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow mid-ceremony (very Love Actually-esque!), a dreamy champagne wall for an escort card display, pun-ny, cheeky signage everywhere you turned, a glam black and white dance floor with striking decor to complement, subtle nods to musical favorites (check the neon sign!), an elegant showstopper cake and so much more. Zoe + Pete’s guests were treated to a wild dance party and finished the exciting evening with a glitzy sparkler exit where the newlyweds rode off in Vail’s famous pedi-cabs. We love this couple and were honored to have helped this special day come to life – please enjoy reliving this day along with us!!

Brooke + Christian | Vail Mountain Wedding

Brooke + Christian got married in Vail this past June, and we are still swooning at the photos we received from Alp & Isle – who so beautifully captured the romantic and elegant day. We can’t thank our vendors enough for putting together this beautiful event! From stunning florals from The Perfect Petal, to endless views on top of Vail Wedding Deck, finished with dancing under a glowing canopy tent at Vail Square, we loved reliving their beautiful wedding day and hope you love this real wedding re-cap as much as we did!

Hadley was a absolute dream bride! She exudes calm, grace and poise and had a spectacular vision for her wedding!  We were so honored to help she and Michael with their Vail Wedding at the Vail Interfaith Chapel and reception on top of Vail Mountain at The 10th. Working with them throughout the process didn’t feel like work at all, but like spending time with some fabulous friends! We couldn’t have been more happy to witness them tie the knot and for the spectacular Fall day they shared with their friends & family in the Vail Valley!

Abby + Sean’s Magical Winter Wedding Nestled in the Colorado Mountains

Last December we were enchanted by Abby + Sean’s magical winter wedding in Vail, Colorado. We have said it once, and we will say it again, there is something truly special about a winter wedding, especially when the night before everything is covered in a fresh blanket of snow. Swoon!

We were beyond excited to share our iPhone photo recap with you, but we now have the real deal photos back and we are bursting at the seams to share! Angie Wilson couldn’t have captured this gorgeous couple and that remarkable day any better! It makes us wish we could go back and relive it over and over again! If you simply haven’t had enough of this sensational couple, be sure to head over and check out their portfolio and catch up on the blushing brides perspective of her special day! xx, Calluna

Real Wedding :: A Magical Winter Wedding in Vail

This past weekend we had the pleasure of helping Abby + Sean tie the knot in Vail. We just love winter weddings, they are absolutely stunning! Especially when the night before, you get a fresh coat of snow to cover the Vail valley! To say the least, the weather could not have turned out better for Abby + Sean’s winter wonderland wedding!

Our bride, Abby, looked absolutely marvelous in her beautiful white Vera Wang gown, her oh so chic white fur cover, her glamorous sparkly heels, paired with her traditional white bouquet with a modern twist by The Perfect Petal!

Abby + Sean said their forever vows at the Vail Interfaith Chapel followed by a cozy winter reception at the Sonnenalp Hotel. Following the dinner the bride and groom danced the night away with their guests with the sound of the amazing Wash Park Band! It truly was a night to remember, and the perfect way for Calluna Events to wrap up the 2015 wedding season! We can’t wait to get the real deal photos from Alison Wilson Photography, but until then here are some iPhone photos we were able to snap throughout the day! Enjoy! xx, Calluna
