Down the Aisle at the Ritz Carlton Denver

Last week we were part of a wedding show unlike anything I've ever seen before. It was absolutely outstanding.

Introducing the national team of vendors:

Lisa Konecny of E-Events coordinated the spectacular event.
And her amazing assistants, including Brittany Sobering of Tickled Pink, and Jessy Rivers, were on hand to help.

Our friend and fellow photographer, the incomparable Ryan Joseph was on hand as well.

Providing video was the amazing Jeffrey Stoner. I'm telling you, this guy can produce video magic like no one I've seen.

Ian Prosser and his team from Botanica provided the florals...and the pictures below speak for themselves.

Austin Scarlett of Kenneth Pool bridal gowns displayed 25 of his latest creations in a spectacular runway show.

Lindsey Luxa of Dragonfly Custom Design did the programs, invitations and other collateral. Her work is simply amazing.

DJ Carl celebrity DJ, provided the music for the evening. Without a doubt, he is one of the best around.

The chic furniture and decor was provided from Awny Khashoggi of Unique Option. What an amazingly kind and generous person Awny is.

And finally, our dear friend Kristy Chenell and the fine folks at the Ritz Carlton are such absolutely amazing hosts.

(I'm afraid I may have missed someone....if so, I'm sorry. Please let me know if I have!)

Please enjoy the pics...there are many.








The show opened with the uber-cool video that Anton did for us...


The incomparable Lisa Konecny, who has often been a guest speaker at our elevate workshops for photographers.


The talented Kristy Chenell, who guest spoke at our last elevate workshop in Denver.


















Concluding the runway portion of the show, designer Austin Scarlett escorted one of the girls down the runway in what many considered the most beautiful dress of the evening. The guests congratulated Austin on his amazing work.


What inspires you?





Ian and his team dazzled the runway with some of the most beautiful bouquets.










Ian sported the threads of his homeland. Fortunately I wasn't fast enough to catch his quick turn at the end of the runway. :-)


At the conclusion of the show, Lisa's daughters raced up on stage to congratulate her. Her talented husband, Marc, was also on hand for the show. We always enjoy visiting with Marc whenever we have the chance. (And Marc, I haven't forgotten that I still owe you dinner after the surprise meal you prepared for all of us late one evening after a client meeting at your home!)


Tables displays










After everything was over, Joy found these two "brides" in the back looking through our wedding albums.


And finally, the team photograph at the end of the evening. Unfortunately a handful of folks were missing at this point (no Joy).


A special thanks to everyone involved for giving of themselves and putting on such an amazing show. We were proud and honored to be a part of the national team and we're already looking forward to the next time.
