For as long as Annabel can remember, she’s loved to plan, organize, and coordinate events. She graduated from The University of Colorado in Boulder with a degree in communication studies. During that time, she worked at a clothing store where she fine-tuned her communications skills and got a clear understanding of design and decor. After graduating she realized that years of customer service-oriented jobs and her desire to create pointed in one direction: wedding and event planning. With that, she chose to enroll herself in a professional wedding planner program and graduated with honors. Annabel maintains membership with the Association of Bridal Consultants and spends much of her time learning about the newest and most exciting industry trends.

Best decision of our wedding!
Annabel was the best decision we made for our wedding (aside from actually deciding to get married). She was super professional, responsive and SO helpful. Our meetings leading up to our wedding were always super productive and she was able to provide her feedback and steer us in the right direction. It was so nice to not worry about a thing on our wedding day because we knew Annabel had it covered! From taking all of our vendors information to meeting with some vendors prior to our big day, we knew that she had everything under control.Sent on 09/14/2019
Our venue had a tight timeline in terms of getting everything cleaned up and out of there the same night as our wedding, so Annabel was critical in packing up all of our stuff (even our wedding cake!) and gave us everything the day after. You can tell she genuinely cares about her clients and wants them to have the best day ever.. Which we did! I cannot recommend Annabel enough and think that she will make your day that much more enjoyable and fun!

We hired Annabel for full planning and she was a lifesaver, there’s no way we would’ve been able to pull off this big day without her. She supported us on every decision we made and took on so many things to make sure we were relaxed and felt confident leading up to the big day and the day of.Sent on 08/28/2019
In addition to coordinating with vendors and keeping our vision at the forefront, she handled a slew of possible crises with ease. Including: making sure our rehearsal dinner centerpiece making was seamless, making our table signs and seating chart (which turned out gorgeous), finding us a new photographer when ours cancelled 2 months out, and absolutely saving the ceremony when my written vows went missing.
There was no task too big or too small for her to handle. Her eye for design is incredible and everything came together in ways I never could’ve imagined. She was always just a quick text/email/call away throughout the whole process. She really understood our values and vision for the day and made sure it was our perfect wedding.
We absolutely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding, we can’t imagine our big day without her there behind the scenes making all the magic happen. She is such a genuinely kind and caring person and it showed through in all of her work.

Amazing Wedding Day Coordinator!
Annabel was so so wonderful to work with! My husband and I had an intimate destination wedding in Colorado and planning would have been a nightmare without Annabel. She went beyond expectations and made sure that we (including our guests) were taken care of - for example, getting sandwiches for us for lunch, escorting our families down the mountain after the wedding, picking up and dropping off rentals for us. She was so responsive and always made time to meet/talk with us even on short notice. I was so comfortable working with her and she always made sure that my opinions were heard. Annabel also had fantastic taste/style so leaving decorations and table settings to her on the wedding day lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. I cannot say enough good things about her! I would recommend any bride to her!Sent on 08/13/2019
