Todd Reed :: Boulder jewelry designer hosts bridal event this Saturday

Calluna Events is so excited to introduce our brides to Todd Reed Jewelry! We love his work and his commitment to producing high quality bridal jewelry with the least amount of environmental impact. Join Todd and his staff for a bridal event this coming Saturday! Calluna Events will be in attendance and look forward to seeing you there!

More about the event and Todd Reed ::
Boulder, CO March 24, 2011 – It’s all about couples on April 2nd when Todd Reed hosts a bridal event a
t his jewelry design studio at 2015 Pearl Street in Boulder. From 1 - 5 pm the studio will unveil the exciting new designs in its collection of alternative bridal engagement rings and wedding bands. Todd will be personally hosting the event, which will also include a showcase of dramatic floral arrangements from IN/EX, hors d’oeuvres from Frog Belly Farm and organic chocolates from Seth Ellis Chocolatiers.

“This bridal show is a special treat for couples planning their big day. It is also a wonderful opportunity meet the thoughtful and talented designer of this internationally renowned line of engagement and wedding rings,” says Jessie Smith, retail manager at Todd Reed. “Selecting a ring is an important, often emotional experience for couples. To have a personal connection with their wedding ring designer makes the experience even more memorable.” Reed adds, “The excitement in a bride’s eyes the moment she sees the ring of her dreams is matched by my own enthusiasm for creating a ring completely unique to her. April 2nd is a day for us to honor couples and their journey together.”

Todd Reed’s studio is quickly becoming the premier destination for alternative bridal, anniversary, and special occasion jewelry in Colorado. Though Todd has been designing his signature jewelry using raw and natural colored diamonds and precious metals in Boulder since 1992, he was more of a national phenomenon than a local destination. When he opened this elegant studio on Pearl Street in December, local jewelry collectors gained a new window into the inner workings of Todd Reed design. “Each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted, at a workbench, right in our studio on Pearl Street.” states Reed. “Our award winning artisans are passionate about beauty and excellence and each one-of-a-kind design expresses the uniqueness of the individual for whom we make it.”

Founded in 1992, Todd Reed creates one-of-a-kind raw diamond and recycled gold jewelry. Designed and hand fabricated in Boulder, CO Todd Reed, Inc gives its clients the highest quality product with the least amount of environmental impact. Todd Reed recently opened a showroom in downtown Boulder, CO. More information about Todd Reed can be found at

Devils Thumb Ranch :: Tabernash, Colorado

We loved every minuted of working with Ashley & Nic to pull their wedding together at Devil's Thumb Ranch in Tabernash Colorado. Not only is Devil's Thumb Ranch one of our favorite Colorado wedding venues, the details from this wedding were fun, stylish and incredible! From the dessert bar, with a homemade Buckeye recipe to honor Nic and his Ohio roots, the quilt guestbook where guests signed patches of fabric that will be made into quilt for the bride and groom to enjoy, to the absolutely stunning flowers. Everything was perfect for their fall wedding celebration!

Ashley & Nic were stunning and were so lovely and gracious! We wish them all the best!
