Molly & Danny at Donovan Pavillion, Vail
This amazing couple was married at The Donovan Pavillion on July 6th! This couple had a love for the mountains and a love for the outdoors, for that reason we picked this stunning blank slate venue for them! This couple kicked off their wedding weekend by celebrating with all of their friends and Family on the back patio of the Grand Hyatt Vail (Formally Hotel Talisa). Their guests ate, drank, and enjoyed live guitar music into the night. On this couples wedding day they opted to do a first look, where they would see each other in a private setting and do a chunk of their photos before the ceremony. This was a such a perfect and intimate moment and I would recommend doing a first look to any and all couples! Mollys color scheme was a mix of light purples, pinks, and dusty lavenders with pops of ivory and gold! We set up the ceremony patio with a natural birch arch provided by Have A Seat Colorado and added an asymmetrical floral pop to bring the natural setting to life. We decked out the reception space with pale pale grey linens and floral by the amazing Lumme Creations. Laura with Lumme created a mix of tall and short centerpieces to lead your eye around the space and take in the slight differences at each table. As each guest took their seat for dinner they were greeted with their own personal charcuterie board to accompany their salad. This amazing detail that was suggested and executed by Footers Catering showcased the couples love for cheese and wanted to share their favorite Colorado cheeses with their (mostly) out of state guests. The Gordons and their guests danced the night away to the sounds of Diamond Empire Band. This was a super fun and rowdy group of friends and it was such a fun night to share with a group the knows how to let loose! All of these photos were captured by my good friend Megan Blowey owner of Megan Blowey Photography who I met working at a seafood restaurant when I was 18. We both somehow ended up in the wedding industry and it was so nice to celebrate this amazing couple together.
Here is what Molly had to say about her experience with Promise Event Planners on her wedding day!
Payton and team did a phenomenal job from start to finish. We began working with Payton before we had even selected a venue - she helped us find the perfect place which required selecting all our own vendors. For each vendor she narrowed it down to a couple option that fit our style and budget and helped us decide from there. All of her advice and suggestions along the way were invaluable and saved us countless hours, not to mention how seamlessly everything ran the day of, including making a secret run to the liquor supplier when we ran low on rose (to the shock of all our experienced vendors who reviewed the bar plan). Payton was the perfect balance of giving opinions and suggestions from her experience while letting your ideas and vision drive the end result. We loved working with her and would highly recommend!
