An Affair of the Heart wedding shop was established in 2002 by my daughter in Denver, CO the first year of her marriage. After a few months I joined her in the business in the Colorado Springs area. From there, the business grew to offer more wedding dresses, veils and invitations. Our purpose is to help engaged couples save on the cost of their wedding. We offer beautiful designer gowns that have been discontinued yet still in style for a fraction of the retail cost so you are able to save hundreds of dollars on your wedding gown. Quality veils by Illusions bridal, AA Bridal, Ansonia and more are priced at great prices. Invitations are 15% off your total order when ordered on-line or in the shop. Call now for your personal appointment.

My Best to You,

Patricia (owner of An Affair of the Heart)

My experience with Patricia owner of Affair of the Heart was amazing, personable and professional. My daughter had tried on over 100 bridal dresses between Colorado Springs and Denver. None of which she could say “yes to the dress”. When we called Affair of the Heart, I will a little taken back by the location. But after talking with Patricia I thought what is a few more dresses to try on, after all I had been thru this 100+ times. When we arrived at Affair of the Heart, Patricia immediately listened to my daughter’s wants in her dress. After 3 dresses, yes 3, my daughter said “YES TO THE DRESS”. My total experience at Affair of the Heart was more professional, heartfelt, personal than I had experienced from any other bridal shop or bridal boutique in Colorado Springs or the Denver area. Please give Patricia a chance to help you find that perfect bridal dress for your wedding day. Thank you Patricia for making this Mother of the Bride watch her daughter walk down the aisle in her dream bridal gown.

Patty was great and super helpful when I was finding my gown and veil. I had no idea what I wanted and she really helped me see different gowns. The pricing was comparable to David's Bridal for a much better quality dress.

I will send all of my friends who plan to get married to patty!

I could never say enough wonderful things about Patty at An Affair of the Heart! She was able to put me in my dream wedding gown within my budget. I still can't believe how far your money will go with her amazing dresses. My dress would cost three to four times more at any other shop.. She listened to what I wanted amd made sure I stayed in my budget. Patricia is incredibly down to earth and it is evident this is how she runs her business. I am so grateful for An Affair of the Heart!!

I worked with Patty to purchase a rehearsal dinner gown that has limited availability within the state of Colorado. She was incredibly helpful and flexible! I am incredibly pleased with the dress and I cannot wait to wear it! I'm almost as excited about it as my wedding dress! If I had found Patty before I purchased my wedding gown, I would have gone to her first! Thank you so much! Highly recommended!
