Bridal Jewelry for the whole wedding party at Frisk Jewelry in Boulder

Bauble necklace from Frisk Jewelry in Boulder, Colorado.
We are always looking for vendors that Calluna Events clients would enjoy! When we first met with Donna Rubino of Frisk Jewelry we found a classy shop with extensive style and personality that we could whole-heartily recommend to our brides.

Frisk Jewelry is a must see for the many chic Boulder brides that Calluna Events works with. They offer a unique collection of vintage and custom made jewelry brimming with character. You simply can’t take your eyes off of them! Owner, Donna Rubino, and her two daughters, Amanda and Jessica, hand-make their collection of jewelry and specifically select all of the vintage charms for each piece. We are impressed ladies!

Mrs. Rubino has been exceptionally generous and is offering our brides a 25% discount on jewelry for their wedding. She is also offering special bridal events for your bridal party. The bride and her bridesmaids can enjoy strawberries and champagne in the store, while customizing the pieces for your special day!

September weddings in Colorado

September has always been a popular time of year for couples to get married. A September wedding in Colorado is filled with warm day time temps and cool evenings, changing colors and beautiful weather! Because we have so many anniversaries of past clients we wanted to showcase some of our favorite September weddings. We are also booked every weekend this September so the wedding season is not slowing down at Calluna Events.

Enjoy and congrats to these special couples on their anniversaries!

Happy Anniversary Sabina & Heath - a Steamboat wedding and Calluna Events milestone!

Happy Anniversary Sabina & Heath
September 5, 2004
Happy Labor Day! Five years ago this past weekend Calluna Events helped our dear friends, Sabina & Heath get married in Steamboat Colorado. Sabina & Heath were our very first official wedding. We had planned other weddings, just not as Calluna Events. We are honored to say that five years later Sabina & Heath are healthy, happy and just gave birth to an adorable baby girl. As for Calluna Events, we are of course still in business and thriving! Much thanks to Sabina & Heath for being our "first" and many, many congratulations to them for their big milestone! Happy 5 years!

Sabina & Heath's wedding took place in beautiful Steamboat Springs, Colorado at the High Meadows Ranch. We awoke to find 1.5 inches of snow covering the ground...which made the day exciting and challenging since their ceremony and reception was outside. All ended well as the clouds broke around 1pm. By the ceremony at 3pm, the sun was shining and the snow had melted!After the ceremony and a champagne toast, guest mingled with Heath & Sabina while hors d'oeuvres were passed. Dinner & dancing followed into the night under a white tent dotted with pink paper lanterns.The bride's brother, Dan, entertained the 120 guests with a special, multi-media slide show presentation of Sabina & Heath's climbing & outdoor adventures from around the globe.
thanks for reading!

Amy & Heath - A Devil's Thumb Ranch Colorado Wedding

Amy & Heath :: June 13, 2009
Photography :: Recherche Photography
Location :: Devil's Thumb Ranch, Tabernash, CO
Amy & Heath contacted Calluna Events in October of last year and were looking for a wedding planner to plan a summer destination wedding for them in Colorado. They were living in Virginia but had spent the last few years living in Colorado and it had a special place in their hearts. The wedding would be a destination wedding in every sense of the word - everyone was travelling in from out of town. And the bride and groom wanted to show them the Colorado they know and love! The ultra talented wedding photographer Regina Mountjoy from Recherche Photography was able to capture their special moments throughout their wedding day.

Based on our initial meeting with them, we recommended the gorgeous Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash Colorado for the site of their wedding weekend. Amy has a passion for horses and the two of them love the outdoors and being in the Colorado mountains so we thought this would be the perfect site for their wedding. Turns out we were right! They fell in love and booked it right away!

Their wedding was officiated by the lovely Joel Davis. We've worked with Joel a lot and recomend him to couples wanting to infuse a special and unique aspects into their wedding ceremony.

The wedding flowers were arranged by the European Flower Shop a Boulder based wedding florist. Amy & Heath both loved working on the flowers and decor and chose a simple but classy black, chocolate brown and red floral theme.

In keeping with their colors we brought in chocolate brown linens that complemented with the red roses in the centerpieces. Amy and Heath showcased each of their pets, several horses, dogs and cats, in their table names and escort cards! How fun!

The cake was designed by Kim Boos of Tee and Cakes, a Boulder based wedding baker. Amy & Heath chose the design to complement with their black, chocolate and red color scheme.
