Our Story

Our (Tonja and Janah) story starts with two adorable little 5-year-olds. Brody and Harper, our sons, went to school together and as the school year was coming to an end, we decided to make the summer be a blast for them and us.



All summer long we hung out by the pool and took road trips to Salt Lake and Telluride. During the pool days and long drives, we shared ideas about events and design. Between the two of us, we found out that we have over 20 years of event planning and design experience. Once we discussed the idea of joining forces it only took about 24 hours to get things rolling.


Together, we are your premier Western Colorado wedding and event planning company.
