Browsing the 2010 January archive

With a light dusting of snow on the ground here in Colorado, we are anxious for the first sign of spring! I know we’re only barely halfway through winter, but this image found on Pretty Good made us smile…

ooooo…..could we PLEASE design a summer wedding with these colors? pale blue, raspberry red, and milky white with just a touch of silver? Summer delicious!

Rumor has it that Martha Stewart Weddings is featuring a same sex wedding in the upcoming Winter issue (see sneak peek courtesy of 100 Layer Cake below). MS Weddings has always a trailblazer in the wedding industry, and at A Touch of Bliss we are ecstatic to see a media powerhouse publish something we already know: Love is for everyone, and marriage should be too! Way to go Darcy! Bravo!

We love this heavenly confection of silk presented by Bianca Nuno on Etsy.com. What a pretty touch to a summer dress, just a touch of softness. Offered by Bianca Nuno on Etsy.com for $215.00.

This past August, Brooke and Pat tied the knot with a funky, fresh style – they wanted bright, vibrant colors, and a pop-art, Andy Warhol theme. Since they are both native Coloradans, choosing the City Park bandstand was a romantic, urban choice for this couple. They floated through a sea of bubbles down their custom red runner.




The masters at Denver Design Works and custom linens from A Boulder Affair transformed the Marco Polo ballroom at The Curtis Hotel to create a pink and orange party space. They also changed the patio area into a Miami-esque blue lounge for guests – an urban oasis.



The bride and groom were serenaded by recording artist Jessica Sonner for their first dance.


And later in the reception, guests were treated to abstract performance artists by Borillo Entertainment.

The staff at the Curtis hotel created a menu that was perfect to theme – bubble gum martinis, milk shake shooters with an oreo garnish, and tiny Campbell’s tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. Divine!



These amazing images were provided by Kim Nodurft, what a photographer!!

From inspiration to wedding day, we were so excited to help put this amazing wedding into reality!

We wish Patrick and Brooke all of the love and happiness that we saw on their wedding day for years to come!

So sweet of the Denver Post to run a bit in last week’s style section about VOWS! Click here for the full article, here is a snippet:

Kerri Butler has been a wedding consultant for 12 years, but only now can she refer couples to a host of vendors who can help them plan their big day, all under one roof. Butler’s business, the Vows wedding collective, recently opened at 1810 Blake St. Six wedding and party supply businesses and Butler have their offices there, while another 13 keep marketing material on hand and participate in such special events as trunk shows and wedding planning classes.”We have 19 vendors in here, and all of them are at the top of their game and industry, including flowers, music, entertainment, event design, stationary, photography, and hair and makeup design,” she says.
