Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! ~ As You Wish


Let As You Wish give you some tips on why hiring a 
 "Day of Wedding Coordinator" can save you time & alleviate stress!
No need to worry about...
When does the cake arrive?
Does the photographer have a shot list?
What time does the DJ/Band take a break?
Who brought an "emergency kit" for the bride?
Who will cue the best man on when to give his toast?
Who brings the bridal party food & champagne while they are getting ready?
When the rental company drops off your linens, we can set the tables & chairs to your desire

Organize your cake, gift & name card tables
Disperse gift bags to each guest in their hotel room
Coordinate the band & MC on timing of breaks & cue speeches

Arrange centerpieces from florist & after the wedding return
vases &/or donate the flowers to your local hospital or charity

Will bring wedding gifts to your home after the reception & coordinate clean-up
We understand that things "happen" on the big day!
Contact As You Wish to reserve your "Day Of Concierge" so you can enjoy your special day!
We are happy to discuss our vendors & venues in Denver, Boulder, Summit & Eagle Counties.

between Denver & Colorado Springs. 

Cielo is a new, unique, Colorado event venue surrounded by six acres of majestic pines, stone walls, and landscaped grounds that capture the elegant beauty of the Castle Pines Village. Cielo provides a tranquil Colorado setting for you and your guests in a truly convenient location.

Their main dining room can be arranged to suit your wishes – with a beautiful fireplace or an opening to the outdoors as the backdrop for your wedding vows. Cielo's dramatic staircase is perfect for her special entrance. Their Bride and Groom rooms are spacious and comfortable as you prepare for your special day with your family and friends.

They also offer a beautiful outdoor setting for both wedding ceremonies and day receptions with a gazebo surrounded by towering pine trees and wildflowers.
