Wendee at Custom Weddings of Colorado is incredible! She coordinated our intimate destination wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park and made the entire process seem so effortless. Every detail is thought of, and the entire day was customized to what we wanted. If we wanted to add something (like a stop for a picture at the park entrance, or fresh flowers for my hair), she was quick to accommodate. We were able to choose our officiant and photographer from a list of options, and it was great to know that she had personally vetted everyone and we didn't have to worry about picking a lousy vendor. Plus we didn't have to juggle multiple vendor relationships - I talked to Wendee, and Wendee managed everything else. The only thing she didn't plan was our trip logistics (flights, hotels, rental car) and our post-ceremony dinner - but she was happy to give recommendations on everything. From the wedding day timeline to where and when to get our marriage license, Wendee addressed every detail and made sure we didn't miss anything. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect, and we loved not having to worry about all the little details. Thank you Wendee!Sent on 06/25/2017

Wendee did a phenomenal job at setting everything up for us, being as I'm not your typical bride I just sent pictures for ideas, and hoped for the best. She did more than prevail. From the officiant, photographer, florist, and cake bakery selection it turned out to be an amazing day. We had Emily as our onsite coordinator the day of the wedding and she did a great job at keeping all of us on task, but not making anyone feel rushed. We seriously could not have asked for a better day! We did the small elopement package, and it included pretty much everything besides me setting up the dinner per Wendee's recommendation at the Briarhurst Manor. Which I might also add was delicious and had beautiful grounds for pictures. If you're looking for easy, low stress planning for a small elopement style wedding, then Custom Weddings of Colorado is definitely the planner for you. Thank you again for putting it all together!Sent on 08/07/2016
