Frequently Asked Questions + Answers
Q: Where is Sweetheart Weddings?
A: We are located in the Sweetheart City—Loveland, Colorado! But we are mobile and serve the Northern Colorado area.
Q: How soon should we reserve our date + time?
A: Let's make your reservation as soon as you have decided on a date for your ceremony! The closer we get to your date, the more limited our availability gets. We are currently accepting reservations for 2021. Ask us how you can be added to our 2022 and 2023 list!
Q: How do we book our wedding?
A: Please email us your request form. Once we receive it, we will reach out to discuss your details and accept your deposit.
Q: What happens after we reserve our date?
A: Once your reservation has been made you can call or email us anytime with questions. We will contact you with any information we need! You will receive a reservation confirmation, and planning forms to help us plan and coordinate your ceremony. Please print, complete, and email those forms to us at least 60 days prior to your ceremony. We will contact you the week prior to your ceremony to confirm your ceremony's details.
We understand you may live out of state and don't have the time to travel to Colorado to meet with us and that's why all planning is done over the phone and via email.
Q: Do you pick the location or do we?
A: The location is your choice. We have preferred locations on our home page. But, if you have a different Northern Colorado destination in mind, let's discuss!
Q: What happens if there is inclement weather?
A: Please make sure you have a backup location set up if needed. Some of our recommended locations have pavilions that make great alternative locations, should there be inclement weather. If you are having a reception, Sweetheart Weddings may be able to set up your ceremony at that location with permission from the venue. Your happiness is so important to us, if the thought of inclement weather makes you nervous we suggest getting married indoors. You may also want to consider Wedding Insurance.

We strive to provide our clients with quality photos, however, weather conditions and late starts may affect the outcome. It's important to arrive on time to your ceremony.
