DesignWorks Plays Favorites

Time flies! It’s time for our second edition of DW Plays Favorites. This month we have a few more of our favorite partners, players, and personalities that help us pull off the most spectacular events. Without these people our events just would not be the same!

Frosted Pink Weddings

Give us a brief description of your business.

We are a leading Colorado wedding planning firm located in the heart of the Vail Valley.  With our company’s rich history on the east coast, we currently decided to take our company nation wide, planning events in the Cape and Islands of Massachusetts.

 We are extremely well known for our personal enthusiasm, practical common sense approach, and unlimited creativity.  Our company is known for creating unforgettable ambiance and seamless organization for brides who want to let go of their stress and take their wedding vision to the highest level. We are your ideal team leader, a trusted confidante, and a kind, caring artist of extraordinary taste and style.

What is your favorite part of events?

For us, the true moment of joy and satisfaction is when we see our bride for the first time standing completely ready, anxious and a bit in awe at the sight of herself in her wedding dress. We can’t help but feel the sense of excitement for her as she looks upon herself with the once-in-a-lifetime bridal glow.

 For the bride, the true moment of bridal bliss is when we get to reveal the reception room to her and her new groom for the first time.  We feel that this is usually the very last moment she will feel any ounce of the oh-so-stressful wedding planning pressure.  By then, the stressful part of the day is over, she is married and she finally gets to see the event she dreamed of come to life.

Intimate backyard wedding for 30 guests or social event of the season for 500?

Intimate events give us an endless opportunity for detail, romance and style.  We aren’t as limited to what we can create and we truly can go all out with our design.  Although we love to feel a sense of success within every event from a planning perspective, with intimate occasions, we can truly seeing the guests embracing the most important part of the event itself – the love the bride and groom have for each other.

Favorite celebrity planner/designer/anybody?

Mary Dann with Mary Dann Wedding & Party Coordinators is a planning firm out of California that has had a huge impact in our company’s vision.  We have looked up to her for her experience, confidence and advice from the start.  She is sharing, giving and very knowledgeable about our industry!

Breckenridge :: Frances Photography 

Favorite thing about Colorado?

We love the sense of peace, serenity and raw beauty that Colorado has to offer, especially in the Vail Valley.  It’s simple, but that’s what our brides are looking for.  Getting out of the hustle and bustle of the real world and having a celebration amidst the open fresh air of the Rocky Mountains is something you can’t get just everywhere.

The Stanley

Favorite event worked on with DesignWorks.

Although we absolutely love each and every event we do with DesignWorks, the one that sticks out for us is a wedding celebration we collaborated on in Estes Park in 2010.  Mindy and Dave were the bride and groom that had a unique style, sense of quirky taste and love for all things gothic romance that not all planners or designers could figure out.  We took our love for romance, mixed with DesignWorks passion for innovative design and created an event of all events. The event itself was nominated for an Icon award that year, which placed it as top three of all events in Colorado, which in our opinion is quite an achievement and expression of our great work together!

Denver Art Museum

Give us a brief description of your event space and/or what makes it unique.

The Denver Art Museum is such a great venue! Both buildings boast unique architecture and house great pieces of art.  It’s a cultural destination that lends itself to creativity which is further accented by the culinary artistry of our exclusive caterer, Kevin Taylor Catering.

What is your favorite part of events?

Here at ShutterBooth we love so many things about Colorado that it’s hard to pick just one. We love the weather, of course, but the friendliness of everyone we meet is our very favorite thing about this place.
