About Us

Our Story

I guess you can say it all started with a wedding... our wedding to be precise. Upon many hours on pinterest searching Colorado Outdoor Wedding, I came across the concept of a mobile bar. I fell in love with the idea! To my surprise, there was nothing like that in Colorado Springs. So in the stressful midst of planning, I turned to my husband and said, "let's build one!" And that's where it all started. 


Yes, that's us in the picture but do not be fooled. I'm pretty sure I was saying some profanities through my smile because our intro song wasn't playing. Why do I mention this? Well... event planning is stressful and there are going to be moments that just won't come out the way you intended. I can't tell you enough how nice it was having The Trough Mobile Bar at our wedding. Not only because our guests were blown away, but more importantly, it was one less thing I had to worry about. At that moment we knew we had something special and we decided to make it our mission to offer that same stress free experience to others.

One last thing, it was really important that we have fair pricing because we were the couple that pretty much DIY'ed everything! We were lucky to have the help of some amazing friends and family to help us stay on budget but we understand how quickly the numbers add up. We truly believe that everyone, no matter your budget, deserves memories that will last a lifetime!
