Jess and Maria,

Salma and Max

James & Jennifer
Jess and Maria,
I have been trying to think of the words to express how grateful we are for everything you did to make our special day perfect. I had this picture of how I wanted the day to look and I didn't think it would be possible if I wasn't there to "monitor" the progress. But, due to a wedding and reception right before ours, that was not going to be possible. The Pinecrest staff were phenomenal and out did the images that I had for that day. Everything was so beautiful and better than I had imagined!! The event center was gorgeous! We can't thank them for everything they did. Nikki's food was amazing and the guests are still commenting about it. We had several guests tell us it was the most beautiful wedding and reception that they had ever been to. Rob was amazing!! He is the best DJ out there!! Our dance floor was never empty! Jess, the pictures are so beautiful. You captured some very special moments. During the ceremony we didn't even know you were there! We have thoroughly enjoyed looking at the pictures - all 996 of them! The day was truly amazing...It was everything and more than I had ever dreamed of. We can't thank you enough for everything. You made us feel like one of the family from the first day we attended an open house. We love you guys!! We can't wait to pick up the DVD and relive it all over again! Please feel free to use us as a reference. In our opinion, it's the only place in Colorado to get married!!
Love,
James and Jennifer Sands

Ryan & Elisa
Jess and Maria,
Thank you so much for making our wedding such a magical day! The Chapel and Reception Hall were beautiful and perfect. Everything from the planning stage all the way to the late night dancing went seamlessly and you really took care of every little detail. The entire planning process was stress free; you guys really know your stuff and communicate very well. It was an absolute pleasure every step of the way. We are talking about coming and visiting on our anniversary just to bring back the memories (and enjoy the beautiful views). Jess, The pictures came out so amazing! They are spectacular and you got a wide range of emotions and styles. The setting was perfect with snow on the ground and the clear sky. We would recommend anyone to have their wedding here for the beautiful location and the great staff that made our day so stress free and perfect. Nikki, The food was so delicious just as we knew it would be. Just like Maria and Jess the planning and event were stress free. Everyone was so easy to work with it made our special day so much more relaxing than some of the stories we have heard from friends and family at other locations. All of our guests said the food was amazing as well. It was just perfect. And a big thanks to the Pinecrest staff for arranging the over 200 bundtinies and making everything look perfect. Pinecrest is a perfect wedding location!
Thank you so much,
Ryan & Elisa

Jared & Dani
My wife, Kathy, and I want to express our deepest and sincerest gratitude for your respective parts in making our daughter's and brand new son-in-law's wedding a successful and very memorable occasion. We've heard nothing but great things from all parties. Jess, your balance of humor and professionalism made all of the photography at the wedding comfortable and enjoyable. We now have more pictures than we know what to do with and there are a bunch of gems there. The hard part for us now will be how to pick out all of the keepers. I can't remember the name of your assistant photographer from the reception (an interesting name, something like "Ulia") but she captured the spirit of the reception very well. Please convey our gratitude. Maria, thank you so much for making sure we all knew what to do and when. As a father about to give his daughter away, I really didn't want to have to worry about the zillions of details that I surely would have forgotten anyway. Nikki, the dinner was fabulous! Thank you so much for your willingness to accommodate Dani's desire to try the Tilapia ahead of time. It was wonderful. You and your team were remarkable. Regarding the Pinecrest staff, Please express our appreciation especially to Nora and Toni for all of their help when we needed it. Jess, if you could also give Jared the bartender a big thank you for me, I'd appreciate it. He was a delight to work with, making several helpful suggestions throughout the evening. Rob, you were a masterful director throughout the reception! You sold me on yourself the very first time we met...and I can't thank you enough for keeping the evening rolling along and so enjoyable. The whole "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" bit was a hoot!...and your trick for filling up the dance floor was very effective. My uncle Gordon was "chosen" as the captain of our table, and the very last person you would ever expect to get out on a dance floor...but he did it! Thank you all so much for a spectacular evening! You have a terrific team and we consider ourselves lucky to have found such a perfect venue so close to home for such an important milestone in all of our lives.
Sincerely,
Ryan Porter Father of the Bride

Paul & Chistina

We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with everyone at The Historic Pinecrest. Maria served as officiant for our wedding ceremony and she did a wonderful job. The pictures Jess took look amazing and they were made available to us very quickly. The Historic Pinecrest's staff and busers did an excellent job making sure the buffet line moved quickly and Nikki's food was delicious. The DJ, Eric, was great at keeping the reception on schedule and at keeping people on the dance floor. As residents of Georgia, Paul and I were especially pleased with how easy everyone at The Historic Pinecrest made planning a wedding that took place in a state we did not reside in. In short, our entire wedding experience far exceeded our expectations because of the people at The Historic Pinecrest. Thank you for making our day so special - we couldn't be more pleased.
Christina and Paul

Thank you all for a wonderful and memorable weekend! Everything on the agenda was executed superbly. A beautiful service Maria! The photos were world class Jess and reception food and service five star Nikki! Carole and I and most importantly Christina and Paul were pleased beyond measure. Many thanks for making it all so enjoyable. Please pass along to your staff our grateful thanks and sincere appreciation. All the best,
Ken, Father of the Groom


Meghan & Markus

To everyone out there in the Colorado Springs and south Denver area Historic Pinecrest is the absolute best place to hold an event if you want it to be affordable; beautiful; fantastic; fabulous; fun and the best food ever. We had my daughter's wedding reception at the Pinecrest Event center on July 14, 2011 we used all of their in house vendors and could not have been happier with our event. The venue was BEAUTIFUL even breath taking. The DJ Rob is incredible my daughter wanted a party and did not want anyone to be bored at her wedding, well both sides of the wedding party have gotten so much feed back from guest and everyone has said the same thing "BEST WEDDING EVER"! Jess is the owner and the photographer and he is AMAZING!!!! Nikki is the caterer and her food and staff are top notch everything from the appetizers to the chocolate fountain were superb! Deb from "Simply Delicious" made our cake best wedding cake ever moist and yummy still today one week after the wedding. We also had the photo booth Pinecrest studios offers and it was so much fun. I am telling everyone out there I looked and looked for a venue where I could stay within my budget and give my daughter everything she wanted for her special day this is the place it was better than we could have ever imagined from beginning to end. Thanks again to everyone associated with Historic Pinecrest if I ever need to host another event it will be at Pinecrest!!
Deb, Mother of the Bride


Koryn & Drew
The Historic Pinecrest is the perfect Colorado wedding destination! Maria is incredible to work with and puts any bride's mind to ease as she effortlessly handles the ceremony and transitions with complete grace. Jess does an impeccable job with pictures and making sure that every person who attends the wedding is seen at some point throughout the night. He also does wonders with capturing the moment and moments that a bride never wants to forget. Nikki and her team do amazing things with food, so that everyone remembers the entree or entrees of the evening. She even will work with any food allergies that you may have concerns with so that your event goes off without a hitch. Eric was our DJ and made sure that the event ran smoothly and more importantly, that everyone had a great time! He was creative, charismatic and genuinely cared about how the wedding night went. When you get married at Pinecrest you do not feel like one of many brides, you feel as though you are part of the Pinecrest family and there is no better team out there to plan the most memorable day of your life :) WE LOVE PINECREST
Drew and Koryn Kessler

Johnathan & Lisa

Johnathan & Lisa


David & Jamie

Jess and Maria,
Jamie and I have been struggling with words to express how grateful we are for all that you did for us on our special day. We had an image of how we wanted our wedding to be, and you took that image and created something beyond our dreams. From the moment we first visited your venue, we felt welcomed by you and your staff. It was the simplest things that we noticed and appreciated. From a simple conversation we had with one of the staff members to the time when you took time out of your day to have coffee with my wife and me. As clients, I don't think we fully realize how much time and effort goes into making one day so amazing for a new couple. All of your time and effort made the whole day so easy for us, and we were able to enjoy every moment. One thing we especially appreciated was the fact that you had several different packages to choose from, and we were able to pick the one that accommodated our needs. The catering services from Nikki were phenomenal! Many of our guests expressed how delicious the food was, and I enjoyed finishing off a second serving myself! As for the music, Rob did an awesome job with all of our musical choices for our chapel ceremony, and getting everyone on the dance floor during the reception! He did everything we asked him to do in coordinating our music. As for our pictures- absolutely breathtaking! The photos that you and Yulia captured of every enjoyable moment on our special day will years from now remind us of one of the best days of our lives. Thank you to you and your staff for making that day so easy for us to enjoy! We will be forever grateful!
David and Jamie Lopez


Jamie & Michael

Thank you Jess. The pictures look wonderful. The pictures truly capture the day and will be beloved memories. We has a wonderful time at the wedding and everyone was so wonderful. Eric did an amazing job with the music and being there every step of the way. The rest of the staff was also wonderful. It was our perfect wedding and will always be grateful for the wonderful memories. You may always use us a a reference and thank you so much.
Michael and Jamie

Jess,
The pictures are lovely! We had the best experience at Pinecrest! Thanks to you, Maria, Eric, Jon, and all your staff. We could enjoy the day with no worries and Mike and Jamie had exactly the wedding they dreamed of. Tell Nikki that everyone was impressed with the delicious meal. Toni did a fabulous job of setting up the reception hall. Eric was fun to work with and there was no shortage of people on the dance floor thanks to him. Fun was had by all! Jon spent so many hours with us and was so patient in getting the pictures he needed and we wanted. Sarah was a great wedding coordinator and worked so well with Jamie. The staff at the reception worked so hard to make sure everything went well with the food and drinks. The lodge was the perfect place for our family to stay. I can't leave out the gentleman (and whoever else) takes care of the grounds. So beautiful and well cared for. I don't want to leave out anyone so if I missed someone, please pass on my thanks to them also. I hope you enjoyed your well deserved vacation. Again, a big thank-you to everyone who took care of us!
Maria Pluemer , Mother of the Bride


Kip & Ashley
Thank you!!! They look fabulous! I have let Ashley and Kip know and they are going to come by right after from work to see. Neither have email, which is why all the emails have come from me. I will let you know as soon as possible if anyone would like to order a DVD. I know Ashley and Kip (and Charlie and myself) would be thrilled to be a reference for all aspects of the wedding, reception, food, photos, music, etc. We couldn't have been happier with Pinecrest and all its services. Thank you again!!!
Cindy, Mother of the Bride

Eddy & Terri
Thank you so very much Jess! I absolutely LOVE the pictures! :) You did an excellent job capturing all of the important moments of the day, in addition to being very creative with your shots! As the bride, on your wedding day, you miss a lot of what goes on while getting ready, but with these pictures, I feel like I was a part of everything. I can't wait to go through them all again and put together our wedding album!! In addition, Maria was amazing at making sure everything went as planned. She did a fabulous job and I am so glad we had her making sure everything was perfect, because it was indeed a perfect day!! And last but not least, the food and the DJ service were both incredible!! Nikki is great at what she does and Rob was the best DJ I have ever seen at a wedding....and I have been to lots of them!! I can't tell you how many people have said it was "the best wedding they had ever been to"!! You guys are all to thank for that for sure!!! Thank you again so much and please feel free to use us as a referral in the future! You do excellent work!!! :)
