An Intimate French Revelry Wedding on Boyd Lake:

We were so proud to be a part of this celebration of love and commitment between Pat and Tracy in their Boyd Lake home this past Saturday.
My Big Day was asked to help coordinate an intimate wedding for Pat and Tracy who wanted to make sure that their closest friends and family had a taste of Tracy's French family background. We came up with a 'French Revelry' style day for the couple!

While the weather didn't fully cooperate, this couple was cool and calm, and kept a focus on what was truly important!

The colors chosen for the wedding were a white base, with tons of POP! Burgundy, reds, pinks and greens warmed each room. Sprawling vines added an earthy feel. Lace and Lilies in Fort Collins did an amazing job transforming the home!

To make a French Revelry meal complete, you need a very special menu and multiple courses! Taste Local in Loveland, CO did an amazing job with the menu selection, presentation, and authentic interpretation!

And what multiple course meal would be complete without a wine pairing? Our sommelier friend, Paul, hand selected multiple wines to pair with each course. He educated guests on the background of each wine and why it pairs so well!

While we didn't get to celebrate out on the deck - looking out on Boyd Lake, Flexx Productions did provide rentals perfect for some shade on a sunny deck, all of the tables, chairs, linens, gold flatware and more!

Of course, we wouldn't get to post such lovely photos without the permission and talent of the lovely Kyla with KJean Photography! She is always a pleasure to work with and such a professional!

Congratulations to the latest happy My Big Day wedding couple: Patrick & Tracy!

**Where to Dine on Valentine's Day in Loveland 2018**

We are already 9 days into February, so your lead time on making an romantic Valentine’s Day plans for you and your sweets is dwindling quickly!
Don’t worry, we at My Big Day have done the research and leg-work for you and have found some wonderfully romantic ideas for you to consider:

Door 222 food+drink
Celebrated as a delectable dining experience by Feasting Fort Collins, Door 222 offers hand-crafted tapas, dinners, and desserts in an upscale atmosphere in downtown Loveland. This year, in honor of the Sweetheart City’s holiday of Love, Door 222 is presenting a Valentine’s Day, 3-courses of Love. This special meal is $40 per guest with an optional wine pairing for an additional $15. The 3 course special will include a first course with your choice of New England Clam Chowder Soup, Steak Tartare, or a Spinach Salad. The second course includes choices of Braised Beef Short Ribs, Seared Scallops, or a locally crafted Mushroom Risotto. The third course includes a variety of desserts for you and your date to choose from.

Sounds like a tasty option for anyone out on the town on Valentine’s night!

Mo’ Betta Gumbo
If you are after a more relaxed and “down home” kind of vibe for your Valentine’s celebration, you should consider making reservations at Mo’Betta Gumbo. They bring a taste of the Southern Bayou to Northern Colorado in the best way! They have an extensive menu full of the Flavors of the South, including hush puppies, Chicken Gumbo, Po’ Boys, and Crawfish Etouffee! They also have an extensive bar stocked with specialized Moonshine Flavors and Mixers, as well as a variety of Mules and signature drinks.

You will want to make sure to stop by for an after dinner drink and some Beignets at the very least!!

Starlight Dessert Bar
One of our local favorite spots is the Starlight Dessert bar – Loveland’s Sweetest Spot! Known for their enticing desserts and tasty displays, Starlight will be offering a special Valentine’s Dinner this year on the holiday of Love! Parties of 2 can enjoy a 4 course meal for $38, or add some wine for a total of $66! The evening includes appetizer choices, a Strawberry Spinach Salad, three choices for your main dish – including stuffed chicken breasts or Beef Tenderloin in Red Wine Sauce served with roasted asparagus and parmesan risotto. And of course, there will be DESSERT! Starlight will be offering a delicious Raspberry Chocolate Blitz to their Valentine’s diners.
If you can’t make if for a dinner reservation, don’t forget that they have specialty treats and gifts for your Valentine as well – you can purchase a 12” Heart Message Cookie for your love!


We hope that these options inspire you to get your plan on now! You don’t want to have a Blue Valentine due to poor planning!

And just in case you want to take the leap and say vows with your Love or renew the ones you’ve said before, you can plan to attend our Valentine’s Day Group Wedding and Vow Renewal Ceremony before your dinner reservations!
Check out the event details here: http://www.valentinesdayinloveland.com/

This event is based in Loveland, CO but serves all of Colorado and surrounding states. While the majority of our guests come from Northern Colorado and Denver, we have had wedding couples join us from NE, WY, MS, and MO! Celebrate Valentine's Day in the most unique way with us!

A Creative Way to Celebrate Valentine's Day In Northern Colorado 2018 :

Valentine's Day 2018 is just days away... and you might be fretting over what to do this year to show your love for your one and only.

The My Big Day team has put together a list of our personal favorite ways to celebrate Valentine's Day. Feel free to borrow any of our ideas!

Christine:
Being an event planner, I start planning for holidays MONTHS OUT. A few of my favorite things...

1) Purchase matching Valentine outfits and a sweet book for my twin nieces and ship on Feb 1st!

2) Buy Valentine's for the neighbor kids and kiddos in my son's class for him to give (this year is chocolate covered pretzels and sweet little cards)

3) I get a BIG HEART for my parents from the Loveland Rotary (I make it a scavenger hunt) Look for "In love with you since '72 D+N" over by Lake Loveland!

4) I get a couple cards for my husband - one to hide in his work bag so he finds a little surprise, and another 1 or 2 to give at other times. I also gift him a sweet treat of some sort.

5) My Big Day sends out Valentine's to many of our clients and partners. We create them, stamp them, and send them out through the Valentine Re-Mailing Program in early February!

6) I send out Valentine's to family members through the Valentine Re-Mailing Program, and often send a handful of the Official Loveland Valentine's Cards that you can buy around the city.

7) My husband and I either cook a nice dinner at home, or go out to a local restaurant. A few of our favorites: Slate Italian Eatery, Starlight Dessert Bar, Taste Local, Fresh Plate Eatery, Bann Thai, the Himalayan Bistro, or Hearth.

8) Planning the Valentine's Day Group Wedding of course!

Lynzee:
My favorite way to spend Valentine’s Day is out on a trip discovering new places with my hubby! Sharing new experiences is a great way to bond!

Carrie:
As a parent of young children, getting time away to celebrate a holiday built on romance is difficult. I have found the best way is to include my two boys in the celebration. I usually prepare a candlelight dinner where the kids get to drink sparkling grape juice out of the "grown up" wine glasses, and we dine by candlelight. Sometimes we have super fancy chicken nuggets and mac and cheese - the main course is always chosen by the kiddos. Our schedules are always so busy so it's nice to have an evening to sit back with a special dinner together.

Heather:
We love to celebrate Valentines each year by going to Estes Park and go snow shoeing. We then head back to Fort Collins and eat dinner at Bisetti's. Then we go for a long stroll in old Town.

Kathy:
Valentine's Day has never been a big holiday for us to celebrate but it always gives us a reason to do a date night. We like to find a spot that is not a normal place for us or for others so we look for a hole in the wall place that is unique and cozy. This way we stay away from the crowds and we can have some quality time together. Celebrating each other and our love is something we try to do as often as we can. We love to stay connected and continue to build our relationship as we grow old together. We try to strengthen our marriage by remembering this scripture:

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
4Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Katie:
Plan in advance... I love to make reservations at the Loveland Chophouse (4th Street) and get a nice steak dinner and fancy wine!

Randi:
My favorite way is to make a movie fort at home and watch old classics. We fill the fort with snacks and chocolates and roses. Add some cocoa and my loving partner.
Well there you have it - some ways to spend Valentine's Day from the My Big Day event planning team!

If you are looking for an EXTRA unique way to celebrate your love, join us for the Valentine's Day Group Wedding and Vow Renewal Ceremony. We create an entire ceremony around our guests! It is truly a memorable experience! http://www.valentinesdayinloveland.com/
