Above & Beyond

Gosh where do I even begin. Monica and Matthew went above and beyond my expectations. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but these two made everything go incredibly smooth. I got nothing but the highest compliments from our guests how amazing Monica and Matthew were. They were so funny, and so incredibly down to earth. I really appreciated how transparent they were with communication! It was a bittersweet goodbye, but they’re always welcome in Boulder, Wy in the future as friends now!! I couldn’t recommend them enough!

Best Planner in Jackson!

Where do I even begin?! Having Monica as our wedding planer is the BEST decision we've made ever! Monica truly is a dream to work with for the past 14 months since we decided on our venue. She's the kindest, most organized, and sweetest person - if you are still trying to find a planner for your wedding, don't think twice. You will not regret having Monica plan out every little thing for you. Her husband, Matt, is also an absolute delight to work with on the day. Our wedding day at Diamond Cross went exactly as what we had planned and guests were saying it was a "Magazine-Level" wedding! Thank you Monica and Matt for making our big day the best day ever!

The best decision we made!

If you’re thinking of reaching out or hiring Sacred Rim - 1000% recommend! There was absolutely no way we could’ve had a successful destination wedding in Jackson Hole without Monica & Matthew!! They are both the sweetest and very professional!

We went with the coordination package which was perfect for our small intimate wedding – and affordable! However, don’t let affordable fool you on quality – Monica & Matthew went ABOVE AND BEYOND in every aspect and most importantly was reachable, supportive, and very responsive (this was a huge must have for us as some planners took 2+ weeks to respond to an email!)

Monica was extremely organized throughout the months leading up to the wedding and thought of every scenario and asked me questions I would’ve never even thought of! She was very involved in communications with all vendors and had well thought out timelines and layouts which helped the day run smoothly! Monica & Matthew also had very calming energies that helped so much when anxieties were running high!

Our wedding was very tricky because of course in Jackson Hole fashion, a huge storm rolled in the day before (forecasting multiple feet of snow!) so we kept going back and forth between our weather backup plans. I really wanted our ceremony outdoors and Monica made it happen! It was absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way! She worked closely with the venue to ensure everything was safe for our guests and still looking the way we wanted it to. They both made our dream wedding come true and we couldn’t be more grateful!!

Thank you both for such an unforgettable experience! (And thank you Matthew for steaming my dress for 2 hours!!!)

Owner/Wedding Planner

Hello! I am Monica and I am the owner of Sacred Rim Event Planning. I am a lover of the outdoors and a good cup of coffee (or tea). I absolutely thrive off of planning the details for special events, and find so much joy in helping others plan their dream wedding or special occasion.

When I am not planning the intricate parts of an event, you can find me adventuring in the great outdoors with my husband and two pups, fishing in the crystal clear waters of Wyoming, or sipping on a warm delicious beverage. Along with event planning, I am a piano and voice instructor, where I find joy in teaching others the love of music.

I can’t wait to meet you and help bring your dream event to life right here in the Wind River Range and beyond.

Wedding Day Assistant

Meet the one and only Matthew Furman… my amazing and handsome husband. But seriously, he is truly amazing because he helps bring to life beautiful events.

Matthew is a true adventurous spirit. From kayaking the entire Mississippi, to learning Mandarin, and teaching me how to be a better fly fisherwoman :) He is always looking for the next adventure.

Sacred Rim is incredibly blessed to call him our Event Day Assistant (a.k.a Official Errand Boy - yes that’s what he calls himself). Matthew is positive, kind, funny, and a very hard-working individual. He will go above and beyond on wedding weekend to find a seamstress who can make a custom 9” bow for a flower girl dress - true story.

Matthew is a huge part of why this husband and wife team is such a success!
