Dennis rocks! Great to work with on the day of and during all of the pre-wedding preparation. He was very detailed in his communications with us so that he could really get a sense for our personalities, so I felt totally confident as he was filming our day. I saw him all over the place but he was very unobtrusive, even when he had to have the spotlight on during our dark outdoor dancing. A+!

Estes Park Tours & Limousine
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
My parents insisted on having a limo for our wedding day even though we got married and had the reception at the same place. It turned out to be a great idea because it got us some much appreciated time alone between the ceremony and the reception. Our driver was polite and took us for a nice leisurely drive, where we met up with our photographer for some shots alone. A+

Jeff and Christy were just great to work with! Very unobtrusive, but took charge when they needed to get people lined up and posed for the traditional shots. They were good at getting things done quickly so our guests could get back to the party. They worked great together as a team, not only determining the bests positions and settings, but also making sure my hair was right and flowers were in the right position and dress wasn't bunched up, etc. A+

Marci is great to work with! She made our wedding cake not only look amazing, but it tasted great. I was worried about the delivery since it was four tiers, but everything was perfect when it arrive at our reception. A+

The Baldpate Inn
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We love the Baldpate. We've loved it ever since our first visit back in 2002. The staff bends over backwards to accommodate all of the guests and the rustic, peaceful setting is exactly what we wanted for our wedding weekend. They met all special requests and consistently offered to help out or come up with suggestions to make things easier for us. They gave me a "personal assistant" who helped throughout the weekend, everything from setting up our centerpieces to hanging twinkle lights at night and helping coordinate guest seating and toasts. When it became clear that rain would prevent us from having our ceremony on the outdoor sundeck, the staff scrambled with our guests to relocate the ceremony - including all chairs (which had to be dried with towels) and flower arrangements - to the upper porch (which is covered). Also, the room and food rates were very reasonable and everyone loved the Inn and the breakfasts and dinner. The only thing that prevents them from earning an A+ rating is one issue that they were not flexible on - public seating in their restaurant on our wedding day until 5pm (because we would not be in the actual dining room until 7:30). The issue this created, however, is that guests who sat down at 5pm did not finish until 6pm, right in the middle of our ceremony taking place on the porch beside the dining area. Restaurant guests were wandering around on the property and through the Inn during our ceremony, staring and getting in the way as we tried to get ready and line up. They also made a lot of noise driving their cars off the gravel driveway right below our ceremony, which I knew would be an issue. Fortunately there were only 2 carloads that I recall and they didn't disrupt the vows. It seems like a minor issue but the Inn is small enough that it was noticeable and it bugged me, especially since we booked the whole inn for 2 nights and were spending a lot of money there. I tried to ask if they could stop at 4pm but they would not. They did keep a staff person at the bottom of the drive to prevent additional restaurant guests from trying to drive up after the 5pm seating cut off. All in all, as I mentioned, I love the Baldpate and will continue to go there and recommend the Inn. They really deserved an A+ but for that one pesky issue.

My flowers were beautiful - even better than I'd imagined. I gave Kim some photos and told her what I was looking for in general, and she was able to put together wonderful bouquets and arrangements! She was also great to work with - we changed our order many times in the months (and even days) leading up to our wedding, and each time she accepted our changes without an issue. When she arrived onsite with the flowers, I cried at how beautiful they were. My girls and guys loved them! And the price could not be beat! The cake was delicious and exactly what we wanted. We loved it so much that during our official cake cutting, DH and I cut a 2nd piece to eat! We also took a bunch home and have been nibbling on it whenever the craving strikes. Not only did it taste great, but it looked really nice as well.

Ultimate Sounds
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We told Steve that we would like to burn all of our own music and he was happy to play our selections. We gave him the flexibility to also play guest requests, though we had surveyed our guests online to get their main requests ahead of time and included them on our burned CDs. Steve was great at reading the crowd and new exactly when to play fast or slow songs. We had a late start for dinner and the crowd seemed anxious to get dancing, so he played a bunch of fast songs that he kind of cut together in one mix at the beginning to get people moving, and it worked. He was non-intusive but also fun, and a really nice guy. Price was great, too - no travel fee from Denver metro to Estes and the price was only $350 for 3.5 hours. He arrived an hour early to set up and played an extra 15 or 20 minutes for us at no charge.

Estes Park Rent All
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
We rented our chairs from Estes Park Rent All. Everything was high quality and there were no problems at all with the delivery, setup, or removal. It was worth it to have a vendor that works with the venue so well, because I didn't need to worry about anything.
