Colorado Wedding Photography
Meet two women who promise to make your wedding day – the day you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little girl – into a reality. This week’s Wedding Wednesday interview features one of the very best wedding and event planning companies for Colorado weddings – Sapphire Celebrations. It is a unique company that was started by a mother and daughter team. Meet the two extraordinary women who are a gift to brides all around Colorado – Pamela and Angela.

Colorado weddings at the Broadmoor

1. How did Sapphire Celebrations get started?
We planned Angie’s wedding in 2004 and even her Day of Wedding Coordinator could tell that this was her calling. Having planned corporate and philanthropic events and some weddings for friends, this was the catalyst to starting the business. After research, the business was officially formed in July of 2004. Using both of our business and sales backgrounds we’ve been able to take Sapphire Celebrations to the top!

2. What exactly do you offer to brides?
We hold true to our company tag line – Making Your Vision a Reality. Sapphire Celebrations’ coordinators pride themselves in working with our clients to ensure that their wedding day is the perfect reflection of the vision they have for their big day.

3. Are there any creative trends that you see for the upcoming wedding season?
Overall guest experience is very important (and will continue to be) to our clients. They want to make sure that their guests enjoy every aspect of the celebration. This starts with the Welcome Bag that greets them when they check into their hotel room and goes through the late night snack and after party at the end of the night.

4. What’s the most extravagant wedding you’ve ever done?
Each wedding has its own extravagance – it just differs based on the style of the client. We recently did a wedding at the Broadmoor that included every possible aspect a wedding can. There was a string quartet for the ceremony, the groom’s band played during the cocktail hour, guests enjoyed stations of delicious food, stopped by the photo booth, enjoyed custom s ‘more treats and danced the night away to the tunes played by the DJ.

5. What are the benefits of a bride hiring you as a wedding planner vs. DIY?
Offering full service and day of packages, Sapphire Celebrations’ clients get to pick the level of involvement they have in their wedding planning and the work that goes into pulling the day together. No matter their involvement, even DIY brides should have a Day of Wedding Coordinator to ensure that all their plans come together perfectly on the wedding day.

6. What are some of the many publications you’ve been featured in?
Throughout the years we have been honored to have our weddings featured in many print and online publications. Some of the highlights are Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, The Knot Colorado, and Couture Colorado.

7. What areas does your company serve in Colorado? Do you do destination weddings?
Sapphire Celebrations serves all of Colorado, planning weddings in the Denver Metro Area, Colorado Springs, and Estes Park and throughout the Rocky Mountains. We have planned many Colorado destination weddings, where the couple and their guests have selected the beautiful backdrop of Colorado to be the location of their wedding.

8. What do you love most about your job?

Working with clients to unearth their true wedding vision that reflects the style of the couple is one of my favorite parts of my job. There is nothing more satisfying than to have a client walk into the reception space just before the guests and say, “This is exactly what I envisioned!”

Read what a Keystone, Colorado bride had to say about her experience with Sapphire Celebrations.

I can’t say enough about how fabulous Sapphire Celebrations was for my wedding!  They were ready to go with ideas and advice before I even hired her! I truly know that my wedding would not have been the wedding of my dreams without Sapphire Celebrations.  They came through with the perfect vendor recommendations that truly fit what we wanted for our special day.  As for the day of the wedding, I could not have done it without you.  I didn’t even have to think about anything but enjoying the day, knowing that they were there to oversee and get everything set just the way I wanted.

You can find Sapphire Celebrations on Facebook, on their Colorado Wedding Planner website, or email them directly for more information or to book them for your upcoming wedding or special event.
