WIPA Fiesta in The Mountains | Colorado


The WIPA magic began in 2008 when two event professionals, Joyce Scardina Becker and Sharon Jensen, felt the wedding industry needed a change. The existing planning associations were planner-centric and did not address the diverse needs of the industry’s creative and production partners. Further, these minds were left with no networking or education opportunities, as the status-quo wedding planning associations were run by non-wedding professionals as for-profit businesses. That all changed with WIPA–a not-for-profit member-run association that truly represents the industry and protects the consumer.  Within a matter of years, WIPA has grown from coast to coast and internationally, and with their growing presence, WIPA is setting new standards of ethics, education, association conduct, and dazzling meetings throughout the wedding planning industry.

Mountain Fiesta

From wooden farm tables to pressed glassware and tactile textures to woven rugs- this detailed event was wonderfully tucked under beautiful teepee styled tents. Lounge settings with southwestern patterns were placed throughout for comfortable conversations and lush table settings were detailed with laser cut menus and dressed with flora and succulents – mixing the mountain style with desert vibes.
