Prisma Events was created in 2009 from a place of love, passion, and a little bit of crazy. Owner Aimee Palifroni has been in the hospitality industry for nearly 20 years and has roughly 300 weddings she's curated. With a background ranging from hotels, restaurants, catering, and venues, she is brimming with experience and her "addiction to hospitality" shines bright through each of her events. Our team is small so that we can provide focused, personal attention to each of our clients.
Owner - Aimee: I get asked often why I chose event planning. It took me a little time and several different answers to really get to the real one - and then it seemed so obvious. My mother. My mother was, and still is, the impeccable hostess. As a military officer's wife, as her mother before her, the art of the dinner party was an expected trait filled with beautiful displays of pomp and circumstance. I grew up watching my mother create beauty from nothing - food, cocktails, centerpieces, decor. Right down to the smells and music in the air, I envied her grace and imitated her style. As I grew older and eventually moved on to have my own home and friends, I loved to entertain. Birthdays, BBQs, summer soirees - I would make up reasons to have a celebration - just so I could have an excuse to buy fresh flowers to make an arrangement, try that new napkin fold I learned, and concoct the perfect drink for my guests. I started as a catering server in high school and got my first real taste of working in the industry. In my 20's while perfecting the placement of my self-serve hamburger station for a poolside fete, a friend asked why I wasn't an event planner. "WHAT? I could get paid for this?!" The thought had never crossed my mind! I had taken a break from earning my English degree at Colorado State University and decided to return to school at Metropolitan State University of Denver and pursue a degree in Business Management with a minor in Hospitality, Tourism, and Events. While in school I started working as the wedding coordinator for a busy golf course venue and my passion for weddings was ignited. I've worked in an event capacity in some of the best hotels, restaurants, and venues in Colorado before creating my own journey. This story is still building with every year I own, grow, and cultivate Prisma Events and the culture we stand for. It's always been about our couples and being a servant to good taste, beautiful events, and happy times. I love it and I never want to stop!
