Perfect planner for us
Gabrielle was the perfect planner for our wedding, the second for us both. It was exactly what we had envisioned: simple, beautiful and intimate, at the lovely home of friends in the Colorado mountains.Sent on 12/30/2019

Gabrielle from Black Swan events was a partner from the beginning. We always knew that we wanted a wedding redo with an intimate feel and hosted at our home, because when we originally go married we just eloped. She listened to us, and did amazing things with the parameters we gave her. A formal sit down type reception wasn't our style. Gabrielle helped us create a flowing open house reception, which was just perfect for us.
The planning process was extensive, from figuring out parking, where and what seating we could have, menus, decorations, and music.
She helped us solve every problem and anticipated others before they even happened. Gabrielle has a seemingly endless supply of vendors, all of whom love to work with her, and she had wonderful ideas for getting the most out of our budget. We loved every idea she proposed, and she was so good working with us for tweaking any ideas so they fit for us.
We wanted to take a really active role in our planning. Gabrielle completely respected that and worked with us along every step of the planning as well as on the day of the event. Her expertise and guidance allowed us do what we were comfortable with and she handled the rest.
Our wedding revisited was exactly what we wanted and we could not have done it without her.Sent on 12/12/2019
Black Swan Events's reply:Thank you Marti and Jay! You home, garden, personal journey and artistry gave us so many great elements to weave into your day. When you opened your gardeners shed and Jay revealed his wood shop, it was like opening a treasure chest! Thank you for choosing Black Swan.

Gabrielle was a fantastic wedding planner!!
Gabrielle Lennartz with Black Swan Events was so professional, knowledgeable, and personable. She supported us each step of the way, brainstormed ideas to create the wedding that fit us, thought of so many details, and handled vendors before and day of wedding to make it all go seamlessly. We got to just be immersed in the moment and didn't have to worry about anything. It was the perfect day. I would highly recommend Gabrielle to anyone planning a special event. She is also very reasonably priced, and makes herself completely available.Sent on 12/03/2019
