Just got another personalized gift set from an awesome company providing gifts for Groomsmen and more! Groomsday.com sent me a lovely wooden boxed engraved with my husband’s name and in it was a personalized pair of cuff links, a tie tack and a money clip. Mike lost his tie clip last Summer while DJing a wedding so this is an awesome gift set for him! On top of it they included a pair of argyle socks with a personalized wrapper which just sort of finished off the gift… I chose to put my husband’s name and “Dad of The Year” on it since Father’s Day is just around the corner, but these would be great to buy each of your groomsmen and personalize with their names, role in your wedding and the date! The only way to ensure the guys all have matching socks for the cool “shoe shot” is for the bride and groom to provide them! Check out my photos below! This site had really quality products so I highly recommend them! Here’s a link to the sock collections: https://groomsday.com/collections/groomsmen-socks  and here’s a link to the gift set: https://groomsday.com/collections/best-sellers/products/groomsmen-gift-set

And after you purchase your groomsmen gifts then you might want to hop over to their sister site www.bridebop.com to check out some amazing gifts for the bridesmaids or other special ladies in your life! I know these two sites are geared towards gifts for your bridal party members, but there are a lot of awesome personalized gifts for everyone you know. Gifts for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, Weddings, and more! Check out both sites! I wasn’t paid for this endorsement, but I did get to keep these products, but who wouldn’t want such terrific items!

Now everyone knows I’m a big proponent of hiring a disc jockey for your event whenever possible, but there are some events where it’s going to be very small or it’s just not in the budget to hire a professional and in that case if you are looking to save some money on your entertainment you can look at renting the equipment and doing it yourself. That’s where Rockstar Rentals comes in. Not only do they rent sound equipment, but they also rent lighting gear and do light installations. Check them out!
Rockstar Rentals is a premier boutique audio and lighting equipment rental company and event-production team located in Centennial, Colorado – just a few miles south of Denver.  Over the years, we have worked with a variety of bands, DJs, event planners, corporations, and individuals.  We have rented our equipment and décor to small, home-based events, large weddings, and even full-scale A/V events and we have provided services for individuals and corporations.

Don’t you just love Spring? And Spring babies are the best! Fresh and new to the world and super adorable! This young man has three older siblings to help him on his way. I’m so excited to share images from Cole’s newborn portrait shoot! What a cutie!

One of the last of my clients to pick up their wedding album from 2018 events just picked up their amazing book today! Stacie & Carols had a fabulous wedding at Wedgewood’s facility at Brittany Hill in Thornton last summer. They chose so many photos that we ended up having to design them a larger book than what was included in their package, but that’s not a bad problem to have! I hope you enjoy your wedding album for many years to come! Thanks again for having us there to document your day!

 

I received another amazing personalized gift from Bridesmaids’ Gifts Boutique  this time it’s a monogrammed makeup bag with my initials. The bag is nicely made, comes in a variety of different colors and has a lovely tassel on the zipper. Super cute! This would be an adorable gift for each one of your bridesmaids or for the bride herself as a bridal shower gift! As always the delivery was super fast so if you are procrastinating on the gifts check out this site! And their associate site Groovy Groomsmen Gifts

For the bridesmaids: Put in a lip gloss, a nice lotion set, maybe a pair of flip-flops for when the dancing starts, some tissues, mints and maybe a cold brew coffee or other caffeinated drink as it’s going to be a long day!

For the bride: Fill it with bridal emergency kit items and you have the perfect accessory for her big day!  Need some ideas on what to include for an emergency kit here’s my go to list: 1.) A Tide Pen – for any spills or stains 2.) A small sewing kit – for wardrobe malfunctions 3.) Super glue – I’ve seen this save many a heals on shoes and even boutinears!  4.) Scissors – Everyone always forgets to remove tags 5.) Gum and/or Breathe Mints – Fresh breathe speaks for itself 6.) Pantyhose – In case you get a run in one and they can be used for other things 7.) Lip gloss! 8.) A small first aide kit with band-aids, etc. 9.) Clear nail polish – Also stops pantyhose runs 10.) Tissues – For inevitable crying! 11.) Aspirin or Ibuprofen – For pain relief 12.) A nail file 13.) Sunscreen – Especially if the event is outdoors! 14.) Bobby Pins 15.) Fabric Tape –  This has also saved someone from embarrassing clothing mishaps 16) Lint Roller – Keep fuzzies off that dress! 17.) Deodorant – Bride’s forget this all the time! 18.) Pens – To sign the license! 19.) Antacids – In case dinner doesn’t agree with you. 20.) Water & Snacks – the day goes so fast she often forgets to eat!

I’m going to enjoy this bag for years to come! Make sure you check out their site: https://www.bridesmaidgiftsboutique.com/and their site for groomsman’s gifts: http://www.groovygroomsmengifts.com

So a bunch of couples got engaged over the holidays and possibly Valentine’s Day! And they are wondering what they should start with first in the planning process! Well, before you get knee deep in the planning process a fun thing to do is to announce your engagement to the world! And one of the best ways to do this is by having some amazing photos taken of you both during an Engagement Portrait Session! Whether you and your significant other have been together a year or longer, a lot of times there are not a ton of photos of you together as a couple. This is a great way to add some photos to your albums, meet and try out a photographer that you might possibly use for your wedding and to have some fun casual photos of you and your fiance’ for things like your wedding website, save-the-date cards and more!

Here are some great poses and ideas to make your session fabulous!

1.) Beautiful View – Choose a Location for an Outstanding Natural View! (Especially if you can’t hold your wedding at a location with a spectacular view!)

2.) Incorporate Your Pets – Let’s face it your dogs are your family! Bring them along to the photo-shoot for some fun photos. This is a great way to include your furry family members, especially if you can’t bring them to your wedding venue.

3.) Highlight the Engagement Ring – Did your fiance’ do an excellent job picking out your ring? Make sure the ring is the focus for a few shots!

4.) Choose a Fun Activity for Photos – Maybe you are avid rock climbers, role-players, bikers, etc. Use the hobbies that you like to do together to create a fun photo-shoot that shows off what you love to do together!

5.) The Hand-Hold Pose – is a must for every engagement session! It shows how connected you are to the one you love.

6.) Lovely Portrait – Don’t forget to do some traditional poses looking at the camera too! Grandma wants to see your faces!

7.) Nightime Photos – Be unique and schedule your session close to sundown so you can also incorporate some night-time poses, especially if you got engaged around the holidays and Christmas lights are still hanging up around town.

8.) Wall Art Backdrop – Want an urban/edgy look… find some Graffiti Wall Art to pose in front of!

9.) Epic Kiss Photo – Don’t forget the romantic Hollywood kiss photo!

10.) Sun Glow Photos – Use the sun as an interesting/creative element in your photos!

Just delivered another amazing wedding album to another gorgeous couple from their Fall 2018 wedding! Loved this twilight wedding at this fabulous venue.

Just got my personalized wine tumbler from Bride Bop –  https://bridebop.com This wine tumbler is a vacuum insulated stemless wine glass that’s perfect for keeping your drinks chilled up to 12 hours! It’s dishwasher safe and also great for hot drinks too! Bride Bop contacted me to see if I wanted to try out one of their products and review it. I chose this wine tumbler because not only do I love wine, but I thought it would be the perfect cup to hold other beverages in (as well as wine) while I’m in our pool this Summer. I love that it’s personalized so that there’s no mistaking that it’s my cup! These would make perfect bridesmaid gifts for all the lovely ladies in your wedding party! I highly recommend this item and Bride Bop’s website has a lot of great gifts for everyone in your wedding party.  Also check out their partner site: https://groomsday.com/ if you are also looking for some awesome gifts for all of the men in your wedding party!

As always, I wasn’t paid for this endorsement, but I was allowed to keep this fabulous tumbler! I love being able to give couples other ideas for their weddings whether it be venues, other services and more so feel free to contact me if you think my audience would be interested in your products and/or services as I would love to help you spread the word!

Just delivered the Summer wedding album to one of the funnest couples from 2018, Eve & Jon! We did a beautiful simple design for this couple who liked a clean, sharp simple book. This 20 page album covered just the highlights of their awesome event. Here are some photos of the finished book with a couple of my favorite spreads!

 

I absolutely adore Winter weddings and especially when they are centered around a couple’s love of skiing and the mountains! Welcome to Colorado! Katie knew from a young age that she would someday tie the knot at her family’s favorite vacation spot, Copper Mountain Resort! Their beautiful chilly day wedding was perfect from the beginning to the end. Low stress, fun for friends and family and a true celebration for the couple. Here are some of my favorite photos from the day!

The bride insisted on skiing down the mountain to her waiting groom which took a little bit of planning to facilitate because she had to wait for the last chair lift up the mountain at the end of the day. We decided to do a first look with her and her groom before the ceremony so that they could also get in some photos with the fabulous covered bridge in the village! Love, love these photos!

Here she is getting in to the gondola with some friends for the ride up the mountain and the lovely ceremony that followed…. Luckily, they found out there was a warming hut at the top of the gondola to wait in for the 4:30pm ceremony time!

Everyone was treated to hot chocolate as they waited for the ceremony to begin and each seat had a cozy blanket to warm up with! The ceremony was set up as a come as you are dressed event so that guests could enjoy skiing right up to the ceremony start time. After the ceremony and a few formal portraits the guests went back to their rooms to change into their more formal attire for the reception held back in the magically transformed ski lodge! What an amazing day!

Vendors who made this day possible:

Venue & Caterer – Copper Mountain Ski Resort

Florist – Lucy’s Flower and Design

Musician & DJ – Gordon Avenue

Photography – Crystaline Photography & Video
