Here at JA Special Events, we are fortunate enough to get to work with some of the very best vendors in Colorado’s event industry. Today we have the privilege of highlighting a stunning location-Beaver Creek. There are gorgeous ceremony and reception venues nestled in the heart of Beaver Creek that we adore working at, Beaver Creek Wedding Deck, Beano’s Cabin and Saddle Ridge to name a few. Full of natural mountain beauty and charm, the mountain air is inviting under summer flowers or winter powder. Memories are made to last and they can begin in Beaver Creek for your next special milestone. We are thrilled to work alongside Beaver Creek on countless events throughout each year.
Beano’s Cabin served as a spectacular backdrop for the stunning wedding of Meredith + JB. Gorgeous neutral florals provided by Statice Floral accompanied the picturesque wedding, and Jason and Anna Photography captured magnificent images from the memorable day. The most elegant and delicate cake was done by Shamane’s Bake Shoppe-truly a work of art. JA Special Events took care of all event planning and coordination, ensuring that the couple’s vision was executed just as they desired. What a joy and privilege it was to celebrate with you, Meredith + JB!

Heather & Jared’s wedding celebration was an idyllic weekend in Beaver Creek that kicked off with rehearsal dinner at CBar at the resort’s base. Afternoon showers on the wedding day cleared just in time for Jake, the couple’s handsome dog, to perform his ring bearer duties in style as guests from across the country and even Japan witnessed an exchange of vows with verdant slopes in the background and the relaxing rush of a river just over the stone ledge. Flowers in a profusion of color inspired by summer wildflowers were arranged by Statice Floral in weathered wooden boxes, bark-wrapped containers, and glass vases and displayed on the dark rich wood of walnut tree slices, sanded and hand-finished by Jared. A sumptuous dinner served by the excellent team at Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa was followed up with shot ski fun at the bar, a giant Jenga game, and guest appearances in the photobooth from Fabio, Justin Bieber, and Edward Cullen, whose cutouts later found their way to the dance floor made lively by DJ Eric from Elite Entertainment. A huge thanks to Brinton Studios for their gorgeous images of this thoughtful, smart, good-looking, & entirely enjoyable couple!

Deidre + Collin | Beautiful Beaver Creek Wedding is featured today on Rocky Mountain Bride blog! We had the pleasure of working with this lovely couple and their talented families, the friendly staff at Saddle Ridge, uber-talented Jason + Gina Photography, All Digital Videography, Shamane’s Bake Shoppe, and All Events Rentals.
Deidre’s beautiful wedding dress is from one of Denver’s favorite bridal boutiques (and one of our vendor partners), Little White Dress.
From the moment you’re welcomed by friendly gatekeepers at the flag-lined vista drive, you feel like the people of Beaver creek are happy you’ve come and that they intend to show you a good time with top-notch service. Combined with the aspen forests, the mountain grandeur, and the lodge of another era complete with winding staircase and tucked away alcoves, Saddle Ridge fully delivers an enjoyable and memorable experience.
Golden bears, elk, moose, and mouse table numbers, gilded candles on a bed of wood chips, emerald green homemade jalapeno jelly favors, an eclectic mix of old wooden chairs, heirloom photos surrounding a dahlia-adorned cake, and a mix of white roses, baby’s breath, and chamomile in rustic wooden boxes (artfully arranged by the groom’s mother)…the rich details of Colin & Deidre’s mountain lodge wedding were beautifully captured by the fun and talented duo, Jason + Gina Photography
Envelopes of fresh rose petals were sealed in gold and burgundy wax and offered for guests to shower on the newly married couple. We love how this little detail compliments the historic feel of the lodge and gives a sense of timeless romance.
Colin and Deidre’s families were very involved in the décor for this western lodge celebration. They were very creative in the use of wildlife figures, sprayed in gold and displayed on dark wooden stands to hold up the table numbers. Gold-flecked candles on a bed of wood chips in their glass containers interspersed with wooden boxes of flowers all adorned the various wooden tables.
Favor jars of homemade jalapeno jelly (a favorite of the couple) and lace runners added the perfect touch of vintage elegance to the rustic lodge setting.
Saddle Ridge lays claim to “the largest collection of American western antique furnishings and artifacts outside of a museum”. They even include these mismatched wooden chairs, rich in character and so perfect for the setting.
We were thrilled at this wedding to re-connect with a sweet couple whose wedding we had coordinated last summer and who were kind enough to refer us to Deidre and Colin. They now have an adorable little baby boy. It’s so fun to stay connected with our couples as they continue life’s journey post-wedding. And being able to meet new couples through referrals from previous clients is, to us, such a compliment.
Honoring a heritage of strong family ties, Colin & Deidre proudly displayed these vintage family wedding photos on their cake table. We complimented the photos with some western antique furnishings and artifacts (mentioned above) and, later in the evening, some mini-pies and desserts.
Congratulations, Colin & Deidre, on beautifully celebrating your family of two while honoring the richness of your heritage, tastefully complimenting the lodge and mountain setting with your décor, and, true to the Beaver Creek welcome, showing everyone a great time!
