man. Our wedding was a fairytale,” Laura Moss Polaski says of her wedding to Nic Polaski at Flying Diamond Ranch. “Fairytale” is the word that comes up time and time again when people describe the couple’s wedding. Laura and Nic met through work in 2012 and hit it off immediately. “We sat across from each other (at work) and developed a fun friendship,” Laura says. “Many of our first dates were in the mountains, at Buena Vista and Steamboat,” Laura says. Nic proposed to Laura at her family’s cabin in Clark, paying a surprise visit and popping the question with his mother’s engagement ring. The couple now lives in Golden, but the newlyweds take every chance they can get to come to the mountains. “We take our puppy, Norman, to the mountains all the time,” Laura says. “We love hiking, fishing, camping and floating down the river.” Laura and Nic’s wedding was ”a classic fairytale in the woods,” according to wedding photographer Andy Barnhart. The couple each spent the morning with their closest friends and family, ramping up for a tearful, laughter-filled, emotional ceremony. “Apparently, everyone cried,” Laura says. “We were not hiding our emotions or our tears. The guitarist even shed a tear!” Many of Laura and Nic’s guests approached the couple afterwards to tell them how heartfelt the ceremony was. “It 4 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

went by way too quickly,” Laura says. “But we knew that would happen so we tried to take in every single moment of the day.” Flying Diamond Ranch was ideal for Laura and Nic’s wedding day. The couple spent lots of time in Steamboat while they were dating, and it quickly became their favorite mountain town. “Water, mountains, aspens,” Laura says. “Could there be a more perfect venue?” Laura and Nic’s photo shoot with Andy and Emily Barnhart was a beautiful moment in the couple’s wedding day. “Andy and Emily were so fun to work with!” Laura says. “We were all laughing and having a blast. Nic and I felt very comfortable.” The Barnharts photographed Laura and Nic’s engagement photos as well, leading to a relaxed and lighthearted wedding-day shoot. “They are a great couple and had amazing chemistry,” Andy says. The couple’s enchanting wedding day didn’t stop at the photo shoot, either. “Nic was up for anything,” Andy says. “They even got in a rowboat and he rowed his new bride around the pond... Talk about romantic!” For more information about the cover photographer, visit l

Wedding stories

Lauren Woodin & Daniel Husek Saturday, July 30, 2016 Photography by L Elizabeth Events, Laura Pearson: photographer


anny Husek’s friend hid in the bushes at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs to capture the magic moment when Danny proposed to Lauren amid the twinkling holiday lights at the renowned historic landmark. The romance continued at their wedding in Steamboat Springs six months later. The couple was married at Holy Name Catholic Church, an imposing new building that offers a meaningful, dramatic setting for a wedding.

18 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

It’s bad luck to see the bride before the wedding, but you can hold hands around the corner.

Holy Name Catholic Church is the newest and perhaps the most elegant venue for a wedding ceremony.

“Oh my god, it was beautiful!” Lauren exclaims. The ceremony, with sunlight streaming through the stained glass windows, became one of the bride’s fondest memories of the day. Surrounded by four bridesmaids in blush pink Bill Levkoff dresses, the bride wore a lace, layered gown and carried a bouquet of green and purple wildflowers. Her groom wore his dress blue military uniform, as did his best man.

The reception took place at the Torian Plum Tent at Steamboat Resorts. The décor was over the top, Lauren says. “It was beyond anything I could have imagined.” Wedding planner Jill Waldman of The Main Event decorated the elaborate tent. “Jill was amazing,” Lauren says. “The best decision for me was having a wedding planner. It’s so important, especially if you’re not familiar with the local vendors.” | 19

Late afternoon light and a dramatic sunset added to the ambiance at the base of the ski area, which was apropos for the couple whose first date was on the slopes of Mount Werner. “Steamboat has always kind of been ‘our place,’" Lauren says. Their guests appreciated Lauren and Danny’s decision to be married in Steamboat, too. Many of them made a vacation of the event and spent a week

going to the hot springs, paddleboarding on the river, hiking and tubing. “Everyone loved it. People tell me it was their favorite wedding,” Lauren says. Danny left 2 ½ weeks after the wedding for Afghanistan. The couple is planning a honeymoon in Costa Rica upon his return. “I would do it all again,” Lauren says.

Wedding stories

Meg Henr y & Chris Franges


hen a boy teaches a girl to ski, anything can happen, including romance. When Chris Franges helped Meg Henry learn to ski, true love ensued. Chris had moved to Steamboat Springs when he was 18 to ski. Meg came later from Kansas City to visit her best friend from high school, and Chris volunteered to show her around the mountain. For three years after that, the couple pursued a long-distance relationship. Chris traveled extensively in Europe as a bike mechanic with HTC Highroad professional race team. Finally, Meg moved to the mountains, and Chris left the racing circuit. One night, after dinner at Café Diva, the couple was walking home through

Gondola Square, past the magic carpet lift. “Do you remember the first time we were here?” Chris asked. “I turned around, and he was on his knee,” Meg recalls. “Skiing is a big part of our relationship.” So Steamboat Ski Area was the obvious choice for the wedding venue. That meant they had 1 ½ years to plan the occasion, as the mountain venues were already booked for 2015. “It worked out wonderfully,” Meg says. The groom was especially excited about having the wedding at Four Points Lodge. The ski area venue, which is reached first by riding the gondola and then by taking a shuttle from there, afforded the couple the opportunity to show off the true beauty of the mountains to their guests.

The scenic venue of Four Points Lodge at the Steamboat Ski Area was the perfect setting. After all, this is where Chris and Meg first met. | 23

Wedding stories

Cari Ann Gelbart & Nate Bird Saturday, July 2, 2016 Andy Barnhart Photography


eople in Steamboat Springs are still talking about the wedding of Cari Ann Gelbart to Nate Bird on a beautiful summer day at Lake Catamount. A classic love story, Cari Ann and Nate’s romance began on Valentine’s Day 2012, and their engagement followed on their three-year anniversary. The couple had planned a weekend getaway to Glen Eden Resort north of Steamboat Springs – snowmobiling, a quaint cabin, a little Champagne. Nate planned to propose later in the weekend, but he couldn’t wait. On Friday, he called Cari Ann out onto the cabin deck, where she found him on his knee. That left the whole weekend to celebrate. Planning their wedding gave Cari Ann a chance to shine in her field: an aesthetician, she has helped many brides to glow on their wedding day. And as such, she has a solid network of local vendors. On an everyday basis, it is usually Nate, a former professional mountain biker and Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club ski coach, whose expertise is in high demand in this outdoor-crazed town. “It was really fun for me to be the one who had all the contacts,” Cari Ann says. “I had the A-team all lined up.” Nikki Knoebel of Catamount Ranch and Club and Cari Ann were at a fundraising event when Cari Ann told Nikki of her impending nuptials. “Why not get married

at Catamount?” Nikki suggested. And the venue was determined. The wedding took place in a grassy meadow near Lake Catamount. The bride wore an Amsale beaded illusion strap dress, which she picked out at Saks Fifth Avenue after two whirlwind days of shopping in Beverly Hills. Her bridesmaids chose their own dresses, selecting colors from Cari Ann’s Colorado palette. Steamboat Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Teresa Steffen Greenlee played with a cellist during the ceremony. Nate’s uncle officiated. “I could listen to the ceremony again and again,” Cari Ann says. “He made it so personal, so special, so funny.” A reception followed the ceremony at the Catamount Lake House. About 100 guests attended cocktail hour and dinner, but knowing that many more of the couple’s local friends would like to be with them, Cari Ann invited an additional 150+ people to come to the dance party after dinner. “It was such a great party. It was just a blast!” Cari Ann says. “I could have danced forever.” Although a honeymoon in Australia was to be the next chapter in this couple’s love story, life had other plans. “I’m expecting twins!” Cari Ann explains. A plot twist, perhaps, but surely an omen of good things to come. | 27

Carly Earp & Keenan Duffey 30 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

Saturday, August 6, 2016 Andy Barnhart Photography


The unexpected appearance of Larry the Camel was totally apropos at the wedding of Carly and Keenan – the couple became engaged at the Pyramids in Egypt.

mong the first to greet Carly Earp and Keenan Duffey and their wedding party atop the gondola was Larry the Camel. Larry made the journey from his Routt County ranch home to the top of Thunderhead Peak to meet kindred spirits: Carly and Keenan. “It was a total surprise,” says Carly, who grew up in Steamboat. Her mother works with Larry’s owner and arranged the appearance. “It was fun to have him there.” And appropriate. The couple lived in the Middle East and became engaged within walking distance of the Egyptian pyramids in Cairo. Keenan was living in Jordan at the time, and Carly had flown over to visit him on spring break. They subsequently lived in Amman for a year, planning their wedding long-distance. Wedding planner Lindsey Grannis of One Fine Day Productions was the key to making that possible. “Lindsey was amazing,” Carly says. In keeping with the wedding theme, “Once Upon a Time in the ‘Boat,” guests received Steamboat items in their gift bags, and Saddleback Ranch, a Western cattle ranch just outside of town, hosted the rehearsal dinner. The late-afternoon ceremony took place at the top of the gondola, a favorite spot of the groom. He and Carly wanted their guests, who came from around the country, to ride the gondola, see the views and experience a mountain wedding. Dark clouds around the area added dimension and color to the wedding photos, and the sun made a dramatic entrance at the end of the ceremony. The bride wore an elegant Francesca Miranda gown, which she chose with her mom and mother-in-law-to-be in Chicago. She completed the ensemble with cowboy boots from F.M. Light. She was surrounded by 11 bridesmaids and a flower girl. The wedding colors were light green, white and blush pink. The flowers and tabletop decorations included succulents | 31

and wood centerpieces. “It was very elegant,” Carly says, “but it still had a Western feel.” Teresa Steffen Greenlee, concertmaster of the Steamboat Symphony Orchestra, performed with a string trio during the ceremony. Denver band Groove Nation played during the reception.

“We begged them to keep playing. People were dancing the whole night,” Carly recalls. “Once Upon a Time in the ‘Boat” can only have a happy ending, as the couple looks forward to their life together, with plans never to stray far from the bride’s Colorado roots.

The bridesmaids wore blush pink and carried bouquets of light green and white flowers.

Wedding stories

Anika Jamison & James Morrison Saturday, August 29, 2015 Haley Allen Photography


armth, humor and family prevailed at the wedding of Nikki Jamison and Jim Morrison at Bella Vista Estate, overlooking the Yampa Valley. The wedding favors on bottles of olive oil read:

“Olive me loves olive you J & N” 34 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

A singular view of Lake Catamount is one of the many amenities afforded by Bella Vista Estate.

Personalized bottles of olive oil served as party favors for the wedding guests.

The groom’s brother feigned uncertainty about the nature of a wedding toast, holding up a plastic bag with a piece of burned toast in it as he spoke. The groom proposed over the microphone at a competitive miners’ event (think lumberjack festivals for the sake of comparison). Anything but cookie-cutter: that was the couple’s goal when they chose Bella Vista Estate for their destination wedding. They wanted a place where guests and family could spend time together, and where firsttime visitors could maximize their time in Colorado. “We wanted our wedding to be a shared experience,” says Nikki. “One of my favorite parts was spending time with family. We had five days with them.” The warmth the couple feels for their families is evident in the entire planning process. Nikki selected her wedding dress in | 35

Eclectic antique glass jars add a personal touch to the farm tables set for the buffet dinner.

Arizona, where her grandmother, as well as her mother, could help her make the decision. Her dad drove from California “with a ton of wedding loot,” Nikki jokes. Of the 100 guests who attended the wedding, about 30 stayed at Bella Vista, maxing out its capacity. The rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception were all held at the estate.

36 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

“Our guests loved it,” Nikki says. “We got super lucky with the weather, and there was even a full moon.” The wedding colors were lavender and dusty green, helping to carry out the couple’s wish that the event be “as organic as possible.” Four bridesmaids wore muted green dresses, each with a different neckline. The bride’s cousin served as flower girl.

Nikki’s search for elegant shoes – not heels – was rewarded when she found these jewel-encrusted sandals for her wedding day.

Alex Mathisen of SoulSpark Events helped the couple to realize their vision. “She gave me input on the local vendors,” Nikki says. “That’s so important, especially if you don’t live there.” The exchange of vows was one of Nikki’s favorite parts of the ceremony, perhaps because Jim embraced the idea of writing original vows. Nina Darlington officiated, and “she was fabulous,” the bride says. Following the ceremony and cocktails, a buffet dinner was served, allowing guests to mingle as they dined. Nikki and Jim selected “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds for their first dance as a married couple. While the lyrics declare, “I love you more than I have ever found a way to say,” the wedding of Nikki and Jim expressed their feelings exactly.

Facials are not only relaxing but can brighten the bride’s skin in Colorado’s dry climate.

Pampering Brides


teamboat Springs was ahead of its time when it invited early visitors to rejuvenate in its mineral-rich hot springs, and today’s spas and salons carry on that tradition by helping brides-to-be and their bridal parties relax, bond and beautify.

Life Essentials Day Spa recommends brides take advantage of its Alpenglow package, which includes a massage, facial and body scrub, four or five days before the wedding. The massage can help relieve tension, while the facial and body scrub create a smooth canvas for spray tanning, which can be applied immediately afterward. Rocky Mountain Day Spa says its Ultimate Hydrating Facial is very popular with brides because of Steamboat’s very dry climate. The facial, which utilizes an organic Champagne toasts are common when the bride and her maids are getting ready. Plus they relieve some nerves. 38 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

Comb Goddess says traveling to wedding sites is a big way their designers help brides relax while getting their hair and makeup done. “We come to them, so they can enjoy getting ready in their own environment,” says owner and stylist Savannah Bongiorno.


Life Essentials owner Pam Peretz says one of her most popular offerings for bridal parties is closing the spa for a private experience. Brides often have their own hor d’oeuvres and Champagne catered for maximum girl bonding. “The spa is theirs – while some are getting a treatment, others are in our tranquility area eating, laughing, having a really good time,” she says.

Rocky Mountain Day Spa also caters to groups, and wedding coordinator Lauren Schiller says bridal groups love to receive manicure and pedicure services together, or use the private relaxation room for mini spa days. Comb Goddess says wedding parties can really enjoy each other’s company while getting their nails done and being pampered.


Life Essentials is the first spa in Steamboat to offer microblading for eyebrows, a process that involves the esthetician drawing on individual hairs with a tattoo blade. The process, which should be started 60 days prior to the wedding, “gives you perfect brows!” Peretz says. A week before the wedding, she 40 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

recommends eyelash extensions, which leave eyes looking beautiful with or without mascara. Rocky Mountain Day Spa says one of its popular services for brides is airbrush makeup because it offers longer wear and can be applied as a light veil or full coverage without feeling heavy. Comb Goddess says brides should opt for shellac nails that last and are resistant to chipping. For hair, Bongiorno recommends brides go with a simple, soft and elegant style. The most important bridal beauty tip of all is to take time to relax. “Just chill, take it easy,” Peretz says. “Think about all the fun you’re going to have at your l wedding.”

Bridal Advice “E

Bride Elizabeth Salazar

1. Don’t let the weather get you down. Although Steamboat is known for its blue skies, storm clouds can gather. Do not fret; the steely gray backdrop makes for vibrant wedding photography. If there is rain, it only brings everyone together and at the end of the day, you’ve married the love of your life – so don’t worry.

6. Pamper yourself. In the midst of a crazy busy wedding week, the best thing a bride can do is something relaxing with friends. Have a massage, soak in the hot springs, take a brewery tour, catch your breath. 7. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Your wedding in Steamboat will be one of a kind.

2. Keep your feet firmly on the ground. Like the look of heels? So do we, but brides tell us to be ready for a few comic moments posing in mountain meadows in stilettos. May we suggest wedges or the ever popular cowgirl boots? Your bridesmaids will thank you.

8. Thinking wildflowers? They are the perfect complement for a mountain wedding, but don’t plan on picking them yourself. Not only does the Forest Service frown on the idea, but wildflowers can wilt. Better to ask a local florist to replicate the look.

4. Hire a wedding planner. Although brides often say they planned to do it all themselves at the onset, never has a single one said she regretted the expense of a planner. It was the best money they spent.

9. Is a destination wedding right for you? Your friends and family will love the idea of a destination wedding in Northwest Colorado. Steamboat has such a plethora of activities that your guests will want to make it a vacation.

5. Trust your wedding planner and local vendors. They know the ins and outs of everything Steamboat has to offer.

10. Provide every guest with a copy of the Steamboat Springs Visitors’ Guide. Visit to make the arrangements. l

For Grooms

Bridezilla vs. the Draft King By Dan Greeson


know virtually nothing about planning a wedding. When I got down on one knee and proposed to my fiancée, Ceanna, in March, wedding planning wasn’t on my mind. I was, and still am, preoccupied with being deliriously in love with Ceanna and wanting to spend every moment of the rest of my life with her. Our wedding is this coming July, and the bulk of the planning is still ahead of us. So if you’re looking for expert advice, then please keep looking. Don’t get me wrong – I’ve gotten a ton of wedding advice since proposing. But for everyone who says, “You’re only job leading up to the wedding is to say ‘Yes, dear,’” there’s someone else who tells me, “You need to be there to make decisions or she’ll get overwhelmed.” Every time I’m advised to “just keep it to close family or 50 | Steamboat Springs Wedding Guide 2017

elope,” someone else says, “If you invite your cousin Steve, make sure his dogsitter from 15 years ago is invited too or heads will roll.” I wasn’t sure who to listen to, so I decided to seek counsel with my most trusted life adviser – Google. If wedding blogs are to be believed, here are my big takeaways:

1. Grooms are useless.

Grooms are expected to propose and then dive out of the way of the wedding planning train. In a wedding website narrative, men are the opposite of King Midas. Everything we touch turns to, ahem…fertilizer. The bride must press bravely forward into wedding-planning battle while the groom tends to couchlounging and fantasy sports.

gruesome demise or – even worse – an

Cali Frankovic Photography

2. Speaking of fantasy sports, grooms can’t decipher anything wedding-related unless it’s put into man-speak. Everyone knows a guy’s eyes glaze over at the mention of matrimony. Man-directed advice has to trick us into thinking we’re drafting a fantasy football team or stocking a man-cave mini-bar instead of putting together a wedding invite list. As an avid supporter of both sports and alcohol, I’m definitely an advocate of this trend.

3. Brides shouldn’t be messed with.

My online research reveals that, like an army of chainsaw-wielding maniacs in white gowns, brides-to-be should simply never be messed with. Guy-aimed wedding blogs seem to imply that making one wrong move in the months leading up to your wedding day, will result in a

appearance on the show Bridezillas. I’ve obviously gained a ton of valuable wedding wisdom from my research, but I’ve got a long way to go before I can actually give handy advice on the subject. All I really know is that I’m crazy about Ceanna and I can’t wait to marry her. And, deep down, I feel like that’s all that matters. l
