The Wedding Pink - 2012 took place yesterday in Beaver Creek. It was an honor to see Roxanne and Joseph share this joyous occasion with family and friends. Roxanne was stunning! The weather was perfect, just a beautiful day all around.
A huge thank you to all of the vendors who made this possible; Frosted Pink Weddings, SaddleRidge, Park Hyatt, Al's Formalwear in Cherry Creek, All Mountain Transportation, Allegria Spa, Alpine Party Rentals, Anna Be Bridal Boutique, CH Studios Custom Clothier, Cheryl Ungar Wedding Photography, Creative Mountain Images, Elements DJ, Express Yourself, Four 13 Designs, Girl ExtraOrdinaire, Glo Makeup/Laura Anzalone, Inga Cox, Jenny Nelson Photography, Pastor Tim Wilbanks, Pink Monkey Solutions, A Secret Garden, Spa 4 the Pink, Sugar, The Espresso Affair, Todd Reed Jewelry and Vintage Magnolia.
We will be posting more photos over the next week, but, meanwhile, here is one of the many beautiful images of Roxanne and Joseph.
I would like to take a minute to recognize the staff at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, particularly Lisa. Most of you probably are not aware of their generous donations to The Wedding Pink. For the 2012 wedding, not only are they donating a suite for Roxanne and Joseph for 3 nights, but they have graciously offered to host a welcome cocktail reception for family and friends the night before the wedding.
If you are not familiar with the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek, here is a brief overview of the hotel:
Escape to the extraordinary Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa and experience a magnificent chateau-style Vail resort that incorporates the grandeur of its idyllic Colorado Rocky Mountain setting.

Park Hyatt Beaver Creek sets the standard for year-round luxury Vail Colorado resort hotel destinations.
From winter ski in-ski out access, to the thrill of white-water rafting, fly-fishing, golfing, hiking and more, you’ll delight in the myriad luxuries this perennial resort in Vail Colorado offers.
During the vendor party at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Roxanne and Joseph had an opportunity to look at some of the rooms and suites. Check out the amazing view from this room!
I would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all of the vendors who are making The Wedding Pink - 2012 a dream come true for Roxanne and Joseph.
Roxanne and Joseph had yet to see SaddleRidge at Beaver Creek, the venue for The Wedding Pink - 2012. A few of us gathered there before the vendor party to take a tour with the happy couple. I believe it is safe to say that Roxanne and Joseph were in awe of the venue and are extremely grateful to everyone who is making this wedding possible. This was also an opportunity for Roxanne and Joseph to meet with the florists and make some selections for the big wedding day. I will chat more about our amazing florists, Vintage Magnolia and A Secret Garden in a future blog post. Meanwhile, I would like to tell you a little more about the beautiful venue, SaddleRidge.
Nestled in the eastern slope of Beaver Creek, SaddleRidge is home to the largest collection of American western antique furnishings and artifacts outside of a museum. With soaring forty-foot vaulted ceilings and its elegant, yet comfortable, atmosphere, guests feel as though they have stepped back in time.
The cuisine is modern Western American, served in three different dining rooms, all available for private functions. Upstairs you can relax in the frontier atmosphere of the Saloon Bar fitted with railroad chandeliers.

As some of you know we had a little vendor get-together party a couple weeks ago at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Over the next couple months I am going to post photos from the party and highlight some of the vendors who are donating their product and services to The Wedding Pink.
I think it is appropriate to start with Frosted Pink Weddings who has been instrumental in coordinating the 2012 wedding. Pictured above is Kelly Karli, the owner of Frosted Pink Weddings with her team, Lauren and Taylor.

While we are still in the process of selecting next year's recipients of The Wedding Pink I thought I would take a moment to tell you about our venue for next year. SaddleRidge at Beaver Creek is without a doubt one of the most spectacular venues in the entire Vail Valley area of Colorado. We are thrilled to be working with them as they have graciously donated their venue for the ceremony and reception with their executive chef preparing an incredible meal for the guests.
A little more information about SaddleRidge:
SaddleRidge is nestled on the eastern slope on the base of Beaver Creek Mountain. The forty-foot high ceilings and the mismatched antique chairs combine to create a cozy atmosphere, which houses the largest collection of American western antique furnishings, and artifacts. In the elegant but comfortable surroundings, you'll feel as if you have stepped back into the eighteen hundreds with Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley as you choose from the menu offering Western American cuisine featuring game and seafood. With the beautiful view of Beaver Creek the dining room has a full service bar and antique billiard table as well as an old time player piano and original Wurlitzer jukebox. The turn of the century library and the refurbished Larkspur room located on the first floor, featuring many pieces of cowboy and Indian artwork, serves as the primary space for meetings and social functions. In addition to the Clubhouse or main dining room, Library and Larkspur rooms, twelve privately owned villas are attached and uniquely decorated with a theme from the Old West.

We have been working around the clock putting together this amazing team of vendors for The Wedding Pink and I cannot wait to share all of the details with you. I think that you will agree, everyone's generosity is a bit overwhelming.
Without further delay, this is what is on tap for The Wedding Pink. SaddleRidge in Beaver Creek has graciously offered to host the ceremony and reception with delectable menu options for dinner. The evening before the big day, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek will host a welcome cocktail reception, with an option to add a rehearsal dinner, and additionally will provide a beautiful suite for the wedding couple for 3 nights. The entire wedding will be coordinated by the fabulous wedding planner, Kelly Karli of Frosted Pink Weddings.
We have everything covered from videography to the wedding dress and the complete list of contributing vendors can be viewed here.
We are not done yet, one more piece of exciting news! We have raised enough funds to cover the small costs of the wedding that we were not able to get donated. The wedding will be virtually cost free to the couple, with a couple of exceptions, please see the bottom of this page.
Please don't forget, our submission period for this wedding closes on Monday, August 15, 2011. We look forward to reading your heartfelt stories.
