Their Story: "We’re choosing small because we like the idea of our closest loved ones sharing this moment with us. Also, we want it to be nice but affordable. And in Colorado, my fiancée likes the Colorado scenery and the Broncos.”
Wedding Details: To surprise the groom, Maribel was able to hire Miles, the Denver Bronco's mascot, to arrive at the vacation house they had rented in Breckenridge Colorado during their getting ready moments and to kick-off the wedding festivities with a few firecrackers. After their first look, they incorporated a Native American hair braiding ceremony - private between the two of them - before heading off to the ceremony site with 19 of their closest friends and family. After the ceremony and group photos, they headed back to the vacation house to celebrate.

Wendee has been planning weddings in Colorado since 1995. In 2012, she decided to "go small" and only plans micro-weddings & elopements with 35 or fewer guests. Contact Wendee to get started planning your intimate small Colorado wedding.
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.
