Saint Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, and no, not for the reason you think (though I do love a good party)! No, I think it stemmed from a tradition at my elementary school. We would follow the glittery green leprechaun foot prints until we found his pot of gold! There was a special magic around the school that day and it started a life time love for Saint Patrick’s Day in me.
And what better way to celebrate a wedding than to throw a St. Patty’s day themed affair (bonus points if you or your fiancé is Irish)! Gather your family and closest friends for a green gala sprinkled with shamrocks and glittery gold. If you book our St. Vrain room for your reception you will even have access to our authentic Dublin bar! You could say the lodge was made to host a St. Patty’s wedding.
Also remember that if you book a St. Patrick’s Day wedding, brides, you will gain access to our bridal changing room for four hours at no charge as well as an added classic appetizer to enjoy!
I hope you are all enjoying the snow and staying safe on the roads!
PS how cute would it be to have a pot of gold groom’s cake? Or give mini boxes of lucky charms as favors!
I trust that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving week! I know that I did. Now, as all of us in the wedding business know, it is peak engagement season. As a gift to all of our potential brides and grooms we would love to offer a special for those who book a wedding for the months of December 2013, and January, February, March and April 2014 both a complimentary classic appetizer and the use of our bridal changing room for four hours’ time.
We would also like to offer the use of our bridal changing room for four hours to those couples who book a May 2014 wedding. If you are interested or have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email us at the lodge and we would be happy to help!
I hope you have a great week! Hand Happy Chanukah to those celebrating!
Please note: this is only for weddings booking now for those months, all other couples who have already booked do not get this option.
Firstly, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family, friends, or both! I am excited to try the fruits of my husband and my labors. We have made a feast for our small family of two and a half; I don’t know how I am going to eat all we’ve made!
Speaking of feasting, thank you to all of the couples and families who came out to our tasting on Sunday; what a wonderful turn out and so much wonderful food, thank you, as always, Nick (that’s our phenomenal chef)! I hope that each of you had a fun time sampling and, hopefully, finalizing your choices! Let’s hope your lists are heavier black than red. As for questions, having planned my wedding, I know there are often many; if you didn’t have something answered, please feel free to contact any one of us at the lodge!
What was your favorite dish on Sunday (or previous brides, what do you think)? Mine would be a tie between the line caught bass encrusted with the most delicious pesto and my always favorite boursin stuffed mushrooms! YUM!
Again, HAPPY Thanksgiving!
