Their Story: "Andy and I started dating my sophomore year and his junior year of high school. We are going on 16 years of being together. We have 2 beautiful kids. At first we were wanting to elope but we are so close to our family that we couldn't imagine getting married without them there. Colorado is somewhere that we’ve always talked about going one day. We got engaged on the beach so we thought it would be cool to do the opposite and get married in the mountains.”
Micro-Wedding Details: After consulting with them on various micro-wedding venues that would be suitable for their group who mostly traveled from Missouri, they decided to marry at a small overlook in Summit County, Colorado (Breckenridge). They incorporated several personal touches, including their two kids as bridesmaid and groomsman. After the "I Do's", the group caravanned to a local restaurant to celebrate in a private room where they could do a few speeches.

I've been planning weddings since 1995 when I moved to Colorado from Iowa. I cut my teeth at Keystone Resort in their wedding department, then then ventured on to planning corporate meetings. But, I kept helping friends and their friends with weddings starting my first full-service company in 2002 (yes - planned the big overwhelming ones). In 2012 with the birth of my son, values shifted and I decided to go small, intimate and meaningful. Please connect with me to make your dreamy, simple mountain wedding come true!
Behind the Scenes
Ever wonder what goes on behind-the-scenes of a micro-wedding day? Jaime L. Barba, one of our talented professional photographers, captured me at work from one of our May 2023 weddings in Boulder, Colorado. Enjoy! .... and yes, she does wedding-day content creation (a great alternative if you cannot afford videography) for couples as well as photography.
What is a wedding day content creator? It’s someone who is there on your wedding day taking pictures on a cell phone (or in Jaime's case, her professional equipement), documenting behind-the-scenes moments, capturing and telling stories, and delivering short-form media content of your wedding day in real-time.
