My "Best of 2015" Colorado Wedding Ceremony Vendors

Every year, I enjoy picking my favorite wedding vendors from the past year and highlighting their work. As a wedding ceremony musician, it was a record year for destination weddings for me, and I had the pleasure of frequently traveling to the mountains where I enjoyed beautiful weddings and stunning views. My vendor picks and the following photos for this year showcase some of these wonderful locations. My vendor choices are the Donovan Pavilion- Vail Wedding Ceremony Venue, Rachel Olsen Photography- Colorado Wedding Photographer, and Collins Coordination- Dallas, Texas Wedding Planner.

Donovan Pavilion

Vail Colorado Meeting Facility and Destination Wedding Location


What I Loved: - The beautiful outdoor patio at the pavilion is a private and peaceful setting for a wedding ceremony - The outdoor wedding area is surrounded by a natural park area, a river and mountains, providing a peaceful ambiance - The pavilion is conveniently located in Vail but because it's not in the main tourist area, parking is always available and convenient - The beautiful and spacious indoor gathering area and outdoor areas are laid out in a way that brings guests together into one space without feeling crowded - Brides can have their wedding ceremony and reception in the same area - no need to move guests from one location to another


Rachel Olsen Photography

Colorado Wedding Photographer

What I Loved: - Rachel really gets to know her couples and captures their individuality in her photos - It is obvious that Rachel loves her job and enjoys each couple that she photographs - Rachel is a friendly person and so easy to work with - Rachel responds to communication quickly - Rachel's photos capture such a wonderful feeling of time and place - Can you feel yourself transported as you view the photos below?


Collins Coordination

Dallas, Texas Wedding and Event Coordination Company

What I Loved: Katie from Collins Coordination is located in Dallas, Texas so she is not local to Colorado, but she was so great that I wanted to feature her on my blog

- Katie was very organized leading up to the day of the wedding, including detailed lists that she shared with all of the vendors. She made my job easy! - Katie is easy to reach over phone or email - On the day of the wedding, Katie was calm, helpful, friendly, and involved with all aspects of the wedding
