We had our wedding at The Stanley Hotel 10/20/12. Here we go:
VENUE - The Stanley Hotel-970.577.4032 what a BEAUTIFUL location! It was EVERYTHING my now hand and I could've ever dreamed it to be!! We had our ceremony in the Piñon Room and the reception in the adjoining Billiard Room. Carrie Carter was our catering coordinator. Although she isn't as prompt as most out of town brides would hope, she did her job and made sure our wedding day was PERFECT! The food was amazing! EVERYONE was talking about it! The service staff (especially our bartender) was IMPECABLE! I cannot stress this enough!!! They were SO attentive. SO on top of things! We could NOT have asked for anything different from that day! One word of advice if you're planning your wedding in the same rooms. Dont worry about having a fire in the fireplace. It makes the room WAY too hot and keep al doors open to the Billiard Room. It also heats up rather quickly especia the number of peeps you throw in there.
FLOWERS - Flowers by Kim - 970.577.1621 we had beautiul centerpieces and bouquets. We weren't big fans of the men's boutineers, but all in all, worth the $$ spent on not having to stress about doing it ourselves.
CAKE -Elegant Creations- 970.214.3451 O.M.G! Lissa is AMAZING!! I think each person a our wedding commented at least once to either myself or my husband about how wonderful our wedding cake and cheesecakes were (Italian Cream wedding cake/New York Style with fresh strawberries, Chocolate Turtle, and Peanut Butter/Chocolate Cheesecakes)! They were AMAZING!! She even agreed to use my deceased Kim's recipe for our wedding cake! I CANNOT say enough POSITIVE comments about this baker!! If you're looking for one, LOCK HER IN!!!
DJ - Rocky Mountain Mobile DJ - 720.231.5702 Phil Ellis was ANOTHER GREAT choice!! He communicated every step of the way and even showed up for our rehearsal (which was not originally planned and over an hour drive for him)! He listened to everything we wanted and did a GREAT job! We had SO much fun!! BOOK HIM!!! VERY REASONABLY PRICED!!!!!! Did I mention, BOOK HIM!?
HAIR & MAKEUP - Captivate by Aleigha - 425.748.4733 this girl was prompt, listened to what I wanted and PERFECTLY replicated what I had in mind! She was calm, sweet, and made this part of my wedding so easy! I was lucky to have found her on TheKnot website. Another MUST BOOK!!!!!!!!
Hope this helps! Our wedding was truly PERFECT thanks to these vendors! And believe me, it was WAY easier to plan a wedding in COLORADO from TEXAS thanks to these guys!! I am so thankful!!
