A Colorado bride has one undenyable and amazing feature at her fingertips and that is the Colorado scenery. Colorado is so diverse and all of that diversity is all so convenient and easy to access. Where else can you be in the fields of City Park in the morning and on the mountain tops of Pikes Peak hours later. Finding the perfect venue in Colorado may seem overwhelming just because of the numerous possibilties, but once you find that perfect place, you want to make sure you are playing up it’s attributes for your event.
As designers, we love what nature has to offer us here in Colorado, and it is our job to work with it without distracting from it. There are many ways to play up the beauty and simplicity of the Colorado backdrop, our favorite being the Chuppah (or huppah). A chuppah is a canopy traditionally used in Jewish weddings. It consists of a cloth or sheet, stretched or supported over four poles. In a Jewish ceremony, a chuppah symbolizes the home the couple will build together. Because the chuppah creates a simple frame for the couple during a ceremony, it is a great focal point that works seamlessly with the Colorado landscape, especially when using natural elements to create the chuppah. We house and make numerous different chuppahs for our clients, see below for some of our most recent.
Sam and Brad got married at a beautiful outdoor facility in Lyons, Colorado called Planet Bluegrass. Sam, being Jewish herself, wanted to use the traditional element for her bay day, but she did not want to upstruct the georgeous views that she and her fiance, Brad, had chosen Planet Bluegrass for. With that in mind, we created a chuppah that fit right into the outdoor rustic look of this beautifully put together event. The chuppah was created using Aspen tree poles bound together and adorned with flowing fabric and colorful sunflowers. Their whimsical personalities were brought together in this breathtaking ceremony.Paula and Mike were a classic example of the cool Colorado couple. They loved to travel and their travels had influenced their style and tastes. Wanting to show people who had never been to Colorado a magnificent view of the front range mountains and the city skyline, they choose to have their event in City Park, right outside of downtown Denver. To compliment the amazing scenery, we were blessed with perfect weather. Since the meadow at City Park is so vast, we choose to use a chuppah like structure to frame the ceremony and focus people’s attention on Paula and Brad. It was constructed of bamboo poles, which was a nod to their love of the tropics, had soft white fabric draping the top and was accented with vibrant flowers. Georgeous!
Lindsay and Jeff were the most laid back, fun couple to work with. The two of them loved each other and their families so much and were inspirational to be around. They wanted their day to be a family affair, therefore why not have it at Lindsay’s childhood home in Cherry Hills. The wedding took place in the middle of summer and ultilized the families entire grounds. The ceremony portion of the event was in the front yard and was nestled into the most lovingly attented and beautifully planned garden. To create a focal point in the garden, a chuppah was created. In keeping with the garden theme, we used natural elements like curly willow branches, beautiful antique hydrangeas and greenery. It was the perfect accent to this home event.Event though these chuppahs and structures are amazingly well suited for outdoor events, they by no means should be discounted for something inside. Regardless of the location, the materials and construction are what make each chuppah perfect for the event. We are willing and able to create whatever you want to make your day something you will never forget. So call us if you have any questions!
