1. Valentine’s Day at The Beer Spa

For all my beer loving, brewery going, in-need-of-relaxation couples. The perfect equation for Valentine’s Day – Beer Spa + Charcuterie Board + Chocolate Covered Strawberries + Sparkling Wine. You and bae deserve a night of disconnecting from the world around you and reconnecting with each other.

2. Dairy Block Floral Fridays

The Maven & Dairy Block are partnering with Plantus Potum to bring you the most curated Flower Market Pop-up called Lovin’ on the Block. Every Friday, as well as February 12 & 13, you can find Plantus Potum providing the most beautiful variety of bouquets for bae.

3. Skyline Rink Romance

Okay, so, you know it’s damn cold here. It’s February. Unless you’re prepared for a winter hike including snow shoes or micro spikes, a day hike may not be the activity you’re looking for. The Skyline Rink hosted by Southwest Airlines is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors without dealing with the treacherous weather conditions that comes with Denver winters.

However you end up celebrating February 14, I hope it’s the perfect day. And if you end up adding some bling to a certain finger, I know a GREAT photographer for engagement photos. 

"Hiring McKenzie to photograph our wedding was single-handedly the best decision we made when planning our wedding. Wedding planning and vendor research was so stressful, and once we had Kenzie, she stepped in as support and helped us with narrowing down things that were important to us and to figure out what we really wanted.  wish we could get married over and over again just to recreate these and work with Kenzie again! "

"You will not find another wedding photographer who has the McKenzie signature style- she can capture the absolute beauty of the area and people all at once. She can shoot in a variety of settings and lightings and the photos are all gorgeous. One of the main reasons we booked McKenzie was the fact that she showcases a diverse clientele and finds beauty in all beings- something not all photographers can say.As a plus size bride who was extremely worried about looking back at my wedding pictures with dread that I wouldn't look like those gorgeous girlies on Instagram- this meant so much to me. "

Sydnie + Nathan

"When we got engaged, we searched near and far for an elopement photographer - & we met with several different photographers but none felt right until we met McKenzie. My husband, my dog and I are avid hikers - we wanted a beautiful hike and view, but it was also very important that we could be our authentic selves and intimately celebrate our 10 years together in the way we wanted. I'll be honest, I was shy about wanting to elope (ya know, family opinions and such), but McKenzie made us feel so comfortable in our decision. She wholeheartedly welcomed us being.. us! We couldn't have asked for more."
