Welcome to L Elizabeth Weddings & Events!

“Love is a simple gift that should be celebrated extravagantly.” That’s what we think.

So why do we use simple and extravagant in the same sentence?
Because we don’t think events have to be complicated and cumbersome to be amazing!

Whether you need a planner, a photographer or both, L Elizabeth Events is here to help you celebrate and relax on your special day.

We know you want to have an awe-inspiring wedding with all the “magic” but who wants to do all the work? Participate in as much or as little of the process as you want.

We are a boutique planning and photography company where everything is centered on YOU. A wedding should reflect the unique style and personality of who you are as a couple. Your love is one of a kind and your wedding should be too.

Our talented team of women is lead by Laura Pearson. Being both a planner and photographer, Laura has a keen eye for detail and sees every wedding as a work of art. She captures the uniqueness of each couple and weaves their personalities into every detail of their day. If you’re lucky enough she may even bring her magic wand!

All the women on the team are passionate about making your dreams a reality. They are there to make sure your event runs smoothly and all of your needs are taken care of.

At L Elizabeth Events, we see ourselves as your collaborator, designer, adviser and partner; helping you navigate through all your wedding needs.


Ed & Katie’s Keystone Wedding | Real Wedding | Keystone Wedding Planning & Photography

Ed and Katie’s Keystone Wedding featured on Couture Colorado

Notes from the wedding planner, L Elizabeth Events {LISTmember}: Ed and Katie were scheduled to get married at Sapphire Point in Breckenridge but a large rain storm hung over the point during their ceremony time so we decided to regroup. I knew of a few spots on the way to Montezuma so I quickly scouted a spot and found a gorgeous sand bar next to the Snake River. The sun was shinning. It was perfect! We assisted the guests down to the location and the ceremony begin under the smooth sounds of guitar and sax. We decided to do a food and wine pairing for their intimate reception with the Wolf Rock chef onsite preparing the dishes and explaining each dish as they were served. I loved the color palette of champagne and peach with a pop of orange. The pairing was complemented with a 3-piece band and the sounds of Russian and English as each guest toasted the bride and groom in their native language and then it was translated by another guest. Ed and Katie are of Russian decent and first generation in the Americas. During the ceremony, the officiant asked and recited everything in English and Ed and Katie responded in Russian. It was so beautiful to see and hear the blending of languages and cultures. In Russia, they don’t have the tradition that the bride is walked down the aisle by her father but that the groom walks her to the altar. They incorporated some traditions from Russia and some from the Americas.

Ross & Sarah’s Vail Wedding | Real Wedding | Vail Wedding Planning & Coordination

Sarah and Ross got married at the Vail Chapel followed by a reception at the Donovan Pavilion. Although I had the privilege of coordinating the wedding, I was not the photographer for this particular wedding. These gorgeous shots were taken by the lovely and talented Cara Leonard (Cara Leonard Photography) who by the way also regularly photographs  Trista and Ryan Sutter of The Bachelor fame. I loved the soft pinks in the floral arrangements, the boxwood aisle decor and the Bagpiper who escorted them from the ceremony and into the reception.


Black & White Style Shoot

We were featured on CoutureColorado today. We hope you LOVE it. Enjoy!

I wanted to create something that would blend a clean modern black and white look with a bit of theatrics. Since black and colored wedding gowns are trending right now, we put the bride in a beautiful custom made black dress with small white feathers adorning the bodice. The bridesmaids in a simple white dress with a bold striped man’s tie. Reversing the norm of the bride in white and the maids in color. I loved the feathers on the wedding invitation, the custom bridal shoes and the different colors and types of strips. There is even a making of video from our friends at Cinematique Film: Making of Video
