Weddings at The Marmalade Lily
Join us for our Bridal Open House!
“I had a vision when I pictured my wedding: I wanted a location that could host both the ceremony and the reception. I wanted something intimate and cozy. I wanted it in nature. I wanted style. I didn't think I would find it. But I was wrong. The Marmalade Lily is like a best kept secret tucked back in the corner of Loveland. Laura and her team are incredible. I fell in love with the venue the moment we toured. I remember the feeling of: I could get married here. The gardens and woods and pond were precisely what I was looking for. The reception space was such a fun twist on a barn, with its craftsman exterior and romantic details inside. It was a stunning backdrop for our big day! But what you don't realize you are getting when you sign on with The Marmalade Lily is all the details and planning you would struggle with on your own. Laura sat down with us three different times, with set paperwork and agendas, to cover everything from florals (they provide, see below), to timeline, to table arrangements and ceremony seating configuration. The Marmalade Lily provides a day of point person who was always there when we needed something, and who brought our ceremony decorations from the other side of the property back to the reception space during cocktail hour, saving us from trying to find everything in the dark! Laura and her crew set everything up day of, even made last minute adjustments, and directed traffic! Laura even drives a golf cart around the property so I (the bride) didn't have to walk to the ceremony site or back to the reception site- it's not a long walk, but is in a big dress and heels! Now on to the florals. I wasn't sure I was even going to have flowers at my wedding, but luckily they were included in the price of the venue. And let me tell you, I was beyond impressed. I wanted something whimsical, romantic, and natural looking. I wanted to make sure it didn't clash with my color scheme- light gray dress, burgundy tux, teal bridesmaid dresses. And I knew I was asking for a lot. But Laura took to my request with so much passion, for flowers and for our big day. These were not a standard, catalog ordered bouquet/table arrangements/arbor swag etc. My bouquet was better than anything I found on Pinterest. It had multiple types of roses, so many beautiful flowers, some berries, and different greenery all in a beautiful ombre array. Even the greenery was included in that ombre effect! Each table had a different floral arrangement, each unique and perfect, but still cohesive with the overall look. The boutonniere for my husband had a ribbon that matched my dress, little gray flowers, a perfect burgundy rose. It was perfection. The florals they added to the swing at the venue yielded some of the most beautiful photos of me in my dress. The front gardens were magical in the golden light of sunset and the photos of my husband and I against that backdrop are beautiful and surreal. Before Laura and her team at the Marmalade Lily, I didn't know what I didn't know about my wedding day. They helped guide everything without once taking over, from preferred vendors down to table arrangements. I feel so lucky to have had such a talented team behind me for my big day. Everything went perfectly on the day of! They were enthusiastic, kind, professional, and so talented. Every detail I looked for was in place. I am so glad I found a venue that could provide everything I was looking for and more.” - A 2018 Marmalade Lily Bride
