Glam & Gold Wedding After-Party at Epernay Lounge

Happy Friday everyone!  Welcome to part 2 of our Pop Sip Celebrate feature!  In case you missed part 1, you must check out the gorgeous silver and rose gold rehearsal dinner and our super fly video teaser here. Just a quick recap for you – I recently had the opportunity to produce a bridal event for Epernay Lounge, a fabulous champagne lounge in Denver’s theater district.  Not only did I get throw a party that required me to sip bubbly and meet lots of beautiful brides (I love my job), I also got the chance to work with some incredibly talented wedding folk.  This party’esque bridal showcase featured a plethora of talented wedding creatives and lots of pretty 2015 wedding trends. Our goal was to style both a rehearsal dinner and a wedding after-party, a growing trend that we hope to see lots of in 2015. Today we’re featuring this fun trend and present to you a Glam & Gold Wedding After-Party at Epernay Lounge.

We used confetti poppers from Ruffled Paper for our save-the-date invitations.  Get it? POP sip celebrate!? Ya, we thought it was pretty cute too.  Consider creating your own poppers for a fun wedding save-the-date! DIY your own, “He POPPED the question, and I said YES!” label…or, shoot me an email and I’ll create one for you. Oh, and another quick tip – order these french macroons from Glaze. You will not be sorry and your guests for love you, like, fo-eva.

For our signature drink we ended up going with a classic Blushing Bride Cocktail (complete with rimmed gold and hot pink sugar sprinkles) courtesy of our wonderful sponsor Mumm Napa.  And in case you were wondering, we didn’t totally forget the boys at Pop Sip Celebrate.  We invited the good-look’in fellas behind Knotty Tie Co. and had them outfit Epernay’s handsome staff. Head on over Knotty Tie and see all their custom offerings for grooms and groomsmen!

Epernay’s brilliant chef Ariel Bilyeu served up some mouth-watering cuisine, including lamb bites, kobe spring rolls, prosciutto wrapped asparagus, and my personal fave, smoked salmon on herbed cream cheese toast point.

Warning. These delicious mini ice cream cones are in fact cupcakes, created by Sinful Cupcakes. Double warning.  They are in fact sinful and just too damn darling to limit yourself to one…or two for that matter. If you invite Sinful Cupcakes to your party, they’ll bring their adorable ice cream social cart!

When planning a late night wedding after-party I highly recommend providing late night grub. Donuts are easy and seem to always be a late night crowd-pleaser.  Personally speaking, I can’t resist the maple bacon bar from Voodoo Doughnut. Plus, their punchy pink boxes went perfectly with our theme! Another idea I love for late night fare is a chicken and waffle bar. Make them mini and provide a flight of syrups for your guests to choose from.

Behind every great party, is a great host, emcee, and of course killer music. We were lucky enough to have DJ West at Pop Sip Celebrate and he executed all three of these things perfectly.  All of this, and he lit up the joint beautifully!  See how lovely it looks on our Pop Sip Celebrate video here captured by Mike Bradley of Visualanties.  Learn more about DJ West’s full services for weddings and events here.

Silver and Rose Gold Rehearsal Dinner at Epernay Lounge

Last month I had the opportunity to produce a bridal event for Epernay Lounge, a fabulous champagne lounge in Denver’s theater district.  This exciting opportunity also gave me the chance to work with some Denver’s most creative wedding professionals.  This party’esque bridal showcase, named Pop Sip Celebrate, featured a plethora of talented wedding creatives and 2015 wedding trends. Our goal was to present both a styled rehearsal dinner and a wedding after-party, a growing trend we anticipate seeing much more of in 2015.  This week we’ll be featuring the gorgeous images from Pop Sip Celebrate in 3 parts; the rehearsal dinner, wedding after-party, and a dreamy 2015 wedding gown photo shoot – all captured by the one and only Levi Tijerina. Today we begin with a silver and rose gold rehearsal dinner

Silver and Rose Gold Rehearsal Dinner at Epernay Lounge

Our tablescape highlighted a mash-up of rose gold and silver dusted with tidbits of purple and pink. I was lucky enough to have Emma of Merci Bouquet provide the jaw-dropping centerpieces created from a collection of roses, tulips, hydrangea, anemone, lilacs and blue thistle.  We decided to mix-up the containers (all from Merci Bouquet’s inventory) which featured various shapes, sizes and patterns. This blended well with Epernay’s aesthetics and offered a very elegant-eclectic meets industrial vibe. If you are in Denver, and are in need of beautiful blooms, you will not go wrong commissioning this talented floral designer. Not to mention unbelievable stylist and all-around visionary. When I couldn’t find the right shade of rose gold flatware, it was Emma who said “Let’s break out the spray paint!” And in two shakes I had the mismatched rose gold look I’d been searching for…

When wedding invitation and stationary designers Ella Vine & Co. agreed to work with me on Pop Sip Celebrate I think I may have literally squealed. I happen to call the dynamic duo behind Ella Vine & Co. friends, and can tell you they are as kind as they are stylish. And oh how I adore their style! First of all, they love all things anthro; and they are obsessed paper, fabulous fonts, and they effortlessly mix pretty patterns.  This is how I knew they would be the perfect partners for this event.  Ella Vine & Co. not only designed the gorgeous invitation suites for both the rehearsal dinner & wedding after-party, they also designed the Pop Sip Celebrate logo, invitation, and event collateral. But you’ll see more on this later this week….

I know what you’re thinking. Are these french macrons real or just for show?!  I can tell you they are real, and are also as yummy as they are pretty!  Glaze Baum Cakes is my number one go-to for these irresistible little cookies. These delicious little darlings are gluten-free, made from scratch each day, and filled with ganache or buttercream. Trust me when I tell you they totally melt in your mouth. French macrons make excellent hostess gifts, wedding favors, and…as you can see from the photos below, the most beautiful centerpieces. Instead of a dessert bar, we recommend trying a macron bar, or perhaps a macron tower to replace a traditional wedding cake. Your guests will love…especially if they get to take some home!

Epernay Lounge is ideal for weddings and parties because of it’s very clean lines, and neutral color palette of white, gray and metallic. We looked to Colorado Party Rentals when dressing our tables.  Not only was Colorado Party Rentals wonderful and so easy to work with, they also offer a stunning selection of linens, table settings, decor and furniture rentals to choose from.  I could have spent hours in their showroom.  Crystal rented us a pewter-colored linen as well as rose gold rimmed plates that Emma and I fell in love with. You can see how nicely they paired with our antiqued-silver chargers, and Ikat patterned plates from West Elm.

Be sure to check out all of these talented wedding pros who helped make Pop Sip Celebrate a smashing success!  Stay tuned for part 2, the wedding after-party later this week.  In the mean time, here’s a little sneak peak teaser of what’s to come, captured by the extraordinary Mike Bradley of Visualanties! http://bit.ly/1zzLG0S
