We create the difference, artfully executing design solutions with intent
Enjoué Studio is an expression of my design style and twenty years of experience in the events industry. I have worked all over the Rocky Mountain West creating events at luxury properties, large hotels, high-end resorts, private homes with tents, remote mountain locations, and unexpected venues. Each event has its own unique opportunities to design within. It is my desire to help our clients discover what they like and then use design, art, texture, light, and shape to transform a space to entice the senses and also stir emotions that will be remembered for a lifetime. If you are looking for an event experience, let’s start a conversation to see how Enjoué Studio can create a truly unique event for you!

How did you get started in the wedding industry? I have been planning events since I was a young girl. I later pursued a Graphic Design degree in college and found that I really love 3-dimensional design. Design and events came together for me in 1998 when I was living in Steamboat. I saw a need and an opportunity to help others with event planning and I started my first business "The Big Event" then. I grew my company to serving destination wedding clients and also became very knowledgeable of tented events, as most of the clients were getting married on private property or venues that needed one for the reception. Over the course of the past twenty + years, I worked with the largest catering company in Colorado and several other large, and well-known event design companies. I knew I wanted to create a new brand and established Enjoué Studio in 2018. My career in the event industry is very diverse, and I have designed elaborate corporate events, produced weddings on mountain tops, intimate events in private homes, premier ballrooms, and tent installations that have taken a full week. One thing is true in all my experiences and that is I love weddings and the opportunity to create custom design decor for the most important events.
Where do you find your design inspiration? The foundation of all we do stems from art. Having pursued an art degree in college, there are layers of art mediums that we look to for creative inspiration. This includes architecture, interior design, graphic design, fine art - painting, photography, textiles, and printmaking. Looking at art and history combined is another source of inspiration. Exploring color palettes from other time periods, reconnecting with other artist’s work, and also, being keenly aware of the world around us. There are patterns, colors, and textures everywhere, and we love discovering new ways to use them and bring them into our event design solutions. The final way we find inspiration is through our clients. As we work with each couple, learning their personal stories, we are inspired to express who they are with the decor we select and the details we put together. This is where the magic happens and makes us the giddiest.
Do you travel for clients? If so, where? We love to travel! Our beautiful state offers so many special and unique venues. We are frequently in the Vail Valley year-round, and also have worked throughout in the metro Denver area, Colorado Springs, Boulder, Grand County, and all of the prominent ski resort locations, such as Breckenridge, Keystone, and Aspen. Having lived on the western slope for 10 years, we also have a keen understanding of places more remote such as Steamboat, Palisade, Crested Butte, Telluride. We welcome the opportunity to travel to Wyoming, and Sante Fe, New Mexico, as well as other states.
What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies? Colorado is an amazing state! We love all of the outdoor adventures it has to offer such as skiing, hiking, climbing 14ers, cycling, riding for the Courage Classic, and snowshoeing. We also love the culinary scene and live music in Denver and also around the state. My husband and I love mini getaways to small towns with B&B, exploring antique shops, finding out of the way cafes, or special restaurants that are off the beaten path. During the summer months, we love outdoor-live-music, whether it’s at Red Rocks, the Denver Botanic Gardens, the local theatres on Colfax, or a small bar patio. We also love all the great restaurants that our great city, Denver has to offer. There are endless new places to try and we are always looking for something new.
