We were lucky enough to have some incredible artists on hand to help get our drop-dead gorgeous models all dolled up. Makeup by Heather B. and Nicole Toledo Makeup Artistry created fresh-faced dewy looks for our bride models that had their skin glowing in all the right places. Our hair stylist and braid extraordinaire Jessica Marquez, created soft loose braids to compliment. I have to mention that all of these artists are as lovely as they are talented.

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.

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.
