Animals & Views Along The Way

Comments Off on Animals & Views Along The Way

Check out these photos snapped from Summer 2016. We traveled lots of miles were able to see some pretty cool places and animals. My favorite had to be the fox that came running up to us in Crested Butte. The deer were lounging and eating at Turner Farm and the marmot was found up in the high country near Monarch Pass. East of Salida we spotted this bighorn sheep ram with nearly a full curl and those pronghorn were running fast near Mt. Princeton.  At Rancho Caballo west of Buena Vista we sparred with a feisty rooster and in the spring we saw lots of cattle. At the top of Cottonwood Pass we spotted these moose grazing in the evening.

At Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort, a wedding or event is truly easy. Featuring multiple event spaces Mt. Princeton can host small intimate dinners or large receptions with full service.  Guests can choose from several lodging options including large cabins. And, of course, there’s the hot springs themselves which are amazing. The spa facility features awesome amenities, several soaking baths at different temperatures and huge pool and deck for relaxing.

Tents-What Sets Us Apart

Comments Off on Tents-What Sets Us Apart


Bighorn Set_17


What sets us apart?

Christopher at Settings Event Rental spent six months researching companies and options before choosing our first frame and cable tents. We choose quality products because your event and guests matter. Tents don’t just keep you dry,  they create shade and offer a central gathering place. Tents help signify something important is happening and ours do just that. Here are just a few things that set us apart:
* Our tents are new and have been used for only one season. They aren’t dirty.
* With 20 feet of space between side legs our frame and cable tents have less guy lines and fewer side legs than a clumsy pole tent.
* Large panorama window walls to enclose the space when you need it but still allow you to have your Rocky Mountain views. Use these walls to also block gusty wind.
* High peaks that make a statement. It’s a lofty signal pointing guests towards the action.
* Because there is no center post to the ground you have a larger usable and unobstructed area.
* Because our tents are modular, they can be used to create unique shapes  and designs. And we can scale them up in size to make larger spaces.
* Engineered fabric and aluminum tubing for challenging weather conditions. We use 30 inch stakes and high strength webbing and ratchets to safely secure the tents.
* Optional water blasting available, white barrels that match. No mismatched, ugly blue barrels here.

Heart of the Rockies Un-Bridal Show

Comments Off on Heart of the Rockies Un-Bridal Show

bridal Show-poster-2016-Salida Colorado

Heart of the Rockies Wedding Association will be hosting the 2016 Un-Bridal show at the SalidaSteam Plant on January 30, 2016. 

The Un-Bridal show is not your traditional booth show. Set up as a more modern reception-style showcase proved both fun and hassle-free for vendors and brides-to-be! 

The event will look and feel like a mock-wedding reception. Vendors and brides-to-be will mingle on the ballroom floor, with the opportunity to try food from caterers, see live table displays and floral arrangements. 

Some vendors will have a small booth space to showcase additional work, but the focus of the Un-Bridal Show is to meet and mingle — not be stuck behind a table.

Save the date, January 30 from 1-4pm. Salida SteamPlant Event Center
