COLLABORATORS

We know the lay of the land and help select the best vendors, artists and creatives to make your experience and event the best ever. Working with vast local resources to curate your event is one of the things we know and love best about the job.

We find inspiration in working with an ever-evolving ecosystem of makers and artists to build beautiful events, scenes and more so - purpose in creativity and community.

Heirlooms is a small boutique offering a range of services - creative direction,  event design, planning, coordination and styling. Owner and creative director Elsa Jagniecki, started Heirlooms in 2012 after planning her own wedding in 2011 and finding creative inspiration and a knack for helping friends and friends of friends design and style their weddings. Since 2012, Heirlooms has designed, planned, coordinated and/or styled over 50 weddings. 

Elsa finds joy and meaning in creating thoughtful designs and intimate atmospheres utilizing and illuminating a natural and clean aesthetic that exists in the surrounding environment. As a creative entrepreneur, she was drawn into the industry because of her love for making, styling scenes, creating space and working with local artists. 

Her design aesthetic is clean, intentional and organic with a bohemian flare.

With a background in anthropology, sustainability and arts marketing, she’s honed her skills at harnessing a design aesthetic that is clean, organic, but individualized to each client's values.

We operate primarily throughout SW Colorado, SE Utah, the Rocky Mountains and are happy to travel. We also offer services in staging and styling for product positioning, creative content and interiors.

PHILOSOPHY & PROCESS

Through artful collaboration, we help clients share beautiful stories by creating individualized spaces and events. Every event is approached as an outward expression of the couple’s relationship, taking into account elements of who they are and their journey together.

We pride ourselves on curating beautiful, stress-free and one of a kind events inspired by each client's authenticity. We focus on simple but significant details. From the big picture down to the details - we specialize in hands-on creative direction and full service wedding and event design, planning and styling - an event, a scene, a table, a store or product lines. 

We also maintain a small, but bespoke collection of rental decor and styling props. Being a one-stop-shop is what sets us apart, as well as the ability to pair planning, styling and rentals all in-house as a full palette for curating your special event. Call us the purveyor of all things bespoke. If we don't have what we need to style the best experience, we make it, collaborate to secure it or simply hunt for it. We are well connected in the SW and work with a diversity of high caliber creatives.

FEATURED WEDDINGS

SUSTAINABLE & GREEN 

As a creative who's passionate about all things handmade, artisan and sustainable, Heirlooms, is also very much about inspiring thoughtful gatherings that avoid the typical (and generic) wedding waste. Each one of the 2.5 million weddings this year in the United States will produce an average of 400-600 lbs of garbage, which amounts to 62 tons of carbon dioxide. This is the other reason we exist, to inspire and encourage beautiful, handmade sustainable weddings that avoid this type of impact on our community and environment. We try to source artisan goods and products from local makers and provide compost and recycling services at our events.
