    Dream Wedding Planner

    Krysta was absolutely amazing and was able to plan our dream wedding on only 3 months' notice. She considered everything we were hoping for and found the perfect location for the ceremony and photos. She had great communication so the day of our wedding ran super smoothly and we knew exactly what to expect. From our first contact, she did all of the networking with the vendors to plan the perfect day. We just let her know what we were looking for and she found somebody that fit the bill. The transition from attempting to plan our own wedding to using such an experienced coordinator was baffling and we're so happy we found Krysta!

    Thank you, Ty! Yours and Christine's wedding was so wonderful! I am so glad you reached out to me to help plan it and that I got the opportunity to meet the two of you and your amazing friends and family. Those sunset images of the two of you with Chimney Rock in the background will always be ones I remember.

    Made the Day Perfect

    Krysta was the best! She helped us from the very beginning of the planning all the way through the wedding day, always willing to answer our questions and provide ideas. Our son and (now) daughter in law's wedding was at a chapel in Telluride and the reception was at our ranch 30 miles away. Not an easy logistical challenge. But Krysta helped us figure everything out and the day turned out perfect. We had everything the bride and groom wanted in a wedding and Krysta helped us keep it within our budget. She got us multiple vendor options so we could meet our budget and offered advice on alternatives when something was just too much. Every one of the vendors she recommended did great job for us and had nothing but good things to say about Krysta and her team. Krysta was willing to meet with us several times at our place (not exactly close to town) leading up to the wedding and give us advice on where to set up the tents, bars, lighting and catering trailers. This made the guest arrival spectacular and the evening flow well. When Krysta wasn't available her colleague Angela was there to answer our questions and was a big help the day of the wedding. A great team. Thank you.

    Thank you for the kind words, Jim! I had a really good time planning this wedding. All of you were so wonderful to work with and the site for the wedding location was absolutely amazing!

    There are just no words to explain how thankfully we are for everything Krysta did to make our wedding weekend absolutely perfect!

    Krysta helped us plan our wedding over the course of three years. We rescheduled 2 times due to covid, and if it wasn’t for Krysta, the whole thing wouldn’t have happened at all.

    We had to renegotiate contracts, find new vendors and coordinate transport and accommodation for many international travelers. There was so many logistics surrounding our wedding, but Krysta took it in her stride and executed everything perfectly.

    Before beginning the wedding planning process, I considered not hiring a wedding planner. If you are on the fence about hiring a planner, please just DO IT. It’ll be the best thing you do:

    1. Krysta reviewed and negotiated contracts for us to ensure we were protected
    2. Krysta thought of details we would have not even considered
    3. Krysta is so straightforward and honest. Having coordinated so many events and weddings, she knows what works, and what doesn’t. Several times I would have an idea, and Krysta would say “in reality that doesn’t work, BUT you could do this instead”. Her ideas were always 10x better than my originally idea, and worked perfectly.
    4. Krysta has relationships with awesome vendors. We would hire every single one of them again in a heartbeat
    5. During the wedding weekend, we were able to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. Krysta seamlessly executed everything and we didn’t have to lift a finger.
    6. After the wedding, Krysta worked with the vendors to clean the venue and collected any unused items. She took the time to return unused items for us, and mail back some items to California. These may seem like small things, but they make such a huge difference.

    Krysta went above and beyond to ensure not only we, but all of our guests were happy and having a great time. She made herself available to answer questions and help out in any way she could.

    Our wedding weekend was without a doubt the best of our lives, and we have Krysta to thank for that. Every detail was thought out.

    Whether you’re planning a local or destination wedding, do yourself a favor and hire Krysta. It will be the best decision you ever make. Thank you Krysta for EVERYTHING - you are one of a kind and we’re lucky we found you!

    Elevation Weddings and Events's reply:

    Wow, thank you Gabi! I really enjoyed getting to know you and Alex better over the last few years. I also enjoyed meeting your friends and family and spending time with everyone! I know we joked about getting your wedding over the finish line but I have to say I am a bit sad that it is now complete. Should we plan something else? :-)

I had the pleasure of working with Krysta for a wedding in New Castle, Colorado earlier this year. Not only was she extremely communicative and detailed in all our conversation leading up to the event, she was super fun to work with on the day of the event as well! This wedding had events that were taking place on multiple locations throughout the property and Krysta kept the ball rolling with ease as well as making sure that everything happened on time and on schedule. Looking forward to our next event together!
