We were so fortunate to have discovered Root + Gather at the beginning of our wedding planning process in late February. We instantly loved their style, and Alaina was so responsive from the start. She took the time to get to know Tim and I, our goals for our wedding (even when we weren't sure what those were), and guided us through our budgeting process flawlessly. And then the world turned upside down with COVID - we were fortunate enough to have our date be in late September in that we could make a decision on if we would postpone - and fortunately for all of us, we did not. But there were SO many unchartered waters to navigate - reducing guest count drastically, ensuring those that could join us felt safe, and making the evening feel as special as we had originally planned. The weekend exceeded our expectations thanks to Alaina and her team - she recommended (or found) amazing vendors for us to work with, kept in close contact, and was so, so responsive to my millions of questions every week. I can't recommend Alaina, and Root + Gather, enough. Thank you for the BEST wedding!Sent on 10/07/2020

We wouldn't have been able to do it without them!
I'll start this review off with a simple statement: If you are getting married and you're not sure A) if you need a planner in the first place, and B) who you should be working with....The answers are A) yes, you need one and B) absolutely, 100% , without question...root + gather.
I don't even know where to begin. root + gather was truly a blessing and we wouldn't have been able to execute our wedding without them. That's not an exaggeration either! This year threw numerous curveballs at anyone trying to have a wedding. But about 5 days before our wedding, a wildfire in Boulder County put our venue in an evacuation zone. We almost gave up, but Madison (HIGHLY, HIGHLY SUGGEST) came to the rescue in so many ways. Within 2 days, she had essentially re-imagined, re-planned and perfectly executed an entirely new wedding at a brand new venue.
Madison was there with us every step of the way. She listened to our concerns regarding how to properly have a covid-friendly wedding, she adjusted (and then re-adjusted, and re-adjusted) our plans as local/state regulations changed, and was honestly just an amazing (and supportive) confidant through all of it. We consider Madison a friend at this point - and we're lucky to have her in our corner. Seriously - she's the best.
From start to end, Alaina (founder/owner - and also amazing) will help you understand their process, match you with a perfect planner and then be there for you when you need them the most. We were blown away with their professionalism, response times, industry knowledge, and so on. And Madison was/is a fan favorite with our families, who were also stunned by how quickly she triaged the situation when we had to move venues. There's not a single thing we would change about our experience with root + gather.
Seriously - look no further. You need to work with a planner, and you should be working with these guys. We loved being paired with Madison, but I'm super confident that Alaina has put together an all-star team and any one of her planners would be amazing. We truly cannot suggest them enough.Sent on 12/01/2020

Absolute perfection from start to finish!!
We’re do I begin... this was the most magical day and I couldn't have done it without the amazing assistance of Crystal from Root + Gather. Her professionalism, care, attention to detail and love, brought to this wedding life AND she did this all super pregnant! From the moment I spoke with Crystal I felt like she heard me, saw my vision and new exactly how to execute it. It's crazy to plan something for so long and finally get to see it all come to life. Her attitude towards getting the job done put me at such ease and honestly allowed me to enjoy my wedding without a care in the world -- because I knew she had my back and understood down to the tiniest detail what I wanted. Her relaxed and generous attitude as she ushered people through the evening was so masterful and incredible to witness/experience. She was truly a significant space holder in this unforgettable day! Crystal got it, understood it and made me vision even better then what I made up in my head! I would hire Root + Gather (Crystal) a thousand times over. Thank you so much!!Sent on 11/26/2019
It's always a pleasure when we have the chance to work with this company. We highly recommend!
The staff at Root + Gather is fantastic! There is an old saying that goes something like this. Its not what you know that will hurt you, it is what you don't know. Alaina and her staff know so much about event planning. They have been coordinating weddings for quite a while. In that time they have learned so much and are able to share that wisdom with you. The couples I work with who use Root + Gather are all calm, cool and very relaxed. What a great way to be on your wedding day!
Working with the root + gather team is always a pleasure! There are several beautiful venues in Lyons and the root + gather team really knows them inside and out. Professional, talented, and caring.. you can't go wrong!
