About

Wendee has been coordinating weddings and meeting for over 12 years. She earned her Bachelors in Communication from Iowa State University and a Masters in Education from Colorado State University. After moving to Colorado in 1995, Wendee was an assistant to two wedding coordinators at Keystone Resort and a Director of Catering. She spent most of her mid-career as a medical-education meeting planner, traveling all over the U.S. developing and implementing multiple logistics (marketing, registration, travel, material production, budgets, audio visual, F&B, etc.) for pharmaceutical industry sponsored medical programs. After years of professional experience, Wendee founded Finesse Events in 2001, a full-service wedding & event planning company. Following the recent sale of Finesse, Wendee is now an independent wedding & meeting planner. She believes in providing high-quality service at an incredible value by limiting day-of clients to 10 and planning clients to three; she believes in doing less, but better. Wendee specializes in wedding day-of coordinating services, location search assistance and onsite meeting management. She is based out of the Denver area, but has traveled all over the world for work. Her distinctive skills are her immense knowledge of locations and vendors, the ability to understand client?s desires and hopes, thoroughness and attention to detail ? all with a warm and friendly approach. Her hobbies include trail running, painting, biking, gardening, snowboarding and telemark skiing.

    Wendee is amazing

    Wendee and her team are absolutely wonderful. She is worth every penny and more. Everything from the initial call, the emails (lots of HELPFUL and informative emails), the call a few days before my wedding, and the same day coordinator helped more than words can express. Stefanie was my on-site coordinator and she was amazing. So helpful and on top of her game. The bouquet she put together for me...so BEAUTIFUL. 💕💕 If you’re looking to have a small wedding in Colorado, contact Wendee. It’s worth it. It really is. The planning of my wedding and wedding day would not have been stress free without Wendee or Stefanie. Thank y’all so much for everything. 💙

    Amazing ceremony. Amazing views.

    Wendee was amazing. She is organized and attentive. Reasonable pricing and I felt it was a bargain for what we got. The wedding day was amazing. Emily our coordinator for the day was so sweet and attentive.

    Perfect intimate wedding

    Wendee is amazing. From the gorgeous lodging recommendations to the perfect chef to the spectacular venue...she made planning our little destination celebration so simple and eliminated so much stress from this entire process! She's incredibly kind and really just killed it on the logistics so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. It may sound odd, but she made planning a destination wedding much easier than planning a local one. If you're looking to have an intimate celebration in Colorado don't hesitate to reach out to her!
