DU Ski Team has a couple of Alpine World Championship Medalists!

I recently had the honor to photograph two FIS Alpine World Championship Medalists. Erik Read and Trevor Philip, both from Calgary, Alberta, are current members of the DU Pioneer Ski Team. Erik and Trevor competed for the Canadian Team that won the Silver Medal in the Team Championships in Vail, Colorado this past winter. Both athletes were great sports and did a super job working with me to get this shoot done successfully.

Winning a medal at the Wold Championships is a goal for many and an accomplishment realized by few. DU is very fortunate to have not only athletes of this caliber, but fine young men like these two in their program.

Weddings…..by Couture Consulting

I recently had the opportunity to meet the two fantastic women behind Weddings by Couture Consulting. Kristy and Katie are both wonderfully talented and bring many years of experience creating one of a kind weddings for their clients. Their services range from “A Day of Planning” consulting to a very comprehensive “Full Service” offering, which takes a bride truly from her dream to reality. These two ladies are wedding super-heroes. Couture Consulting have offices in both Denver and Aspen. In Denver they are located inside the unbelievably unique and colorful Marie James Dress Boutique in Bonnie Brae.

Kristy and Katie have created an opportunity for brides that should not be missed. The “I ♥ Colorado Weddings” workshop series is intended to give bride’s the opportunity to speak with expert wedding vendors on different topics as they move through their planning process.The workshops will run through April of 2012 and feature topics important to every bride.

“Our inspiration for the events is to create intimate and personal nights where we can invite brides to chat with a team of wedding professionals about their wedding.  We wanted to create a series of nights for them to discover how to create the wedding of their dreams.”

On this cold and snowy Tuesday evening the topic was “Discover your Signature Style” and featured experts in invitations & paper goods and floral. Jen from Anthologie Press and Lisa from L.Weddel Design were on hand and eager to assist each bride focus ideas to realize her dream style.

It should come as no surprise that the Ladies of Couture Consulting have come up with such a wonderful idea. Their innovative planning and design process is evident in everything they offer.
