      With engagement season coming up again, couples are starting to look for venues and vendors. A wedding planner is one of the most important vendors you will hire, and is typically brought on board very early in the wedding planning process. It’s impossible to list all the ways that a wedding planner can help you, but here are a few just to get started!

      First, your wedding planner will be available at each step to ease the planning process. Second, we all have busy lifestyles! Hiring a planner will allow you to focus on living your life while they take care of building a vendor list, negotiating contracts, and doing lots of problem-solving. Most importantly, when the big day finally arrives, they will be on hand to take care of all the details so that you can relax enjoy your celebration!

      Today I would like to focus on one of my favorite Colorado wedding planners, Calluna Events. Led by Heather Dwight, Calluna Events is a boutique wedding planning company that has been in business for 16 wedding seasons and counting! Notably, Calluna Events was named one of the Best Wedding Planners in America by BRIDES in 2018. Their memorable weddings and special events have been featured in top wedding publications including Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, Style Me Pretty,  The Knot, Rocky Mountain Bride, and many more. I have no doubt you will enjoy working with Heather and her incredibly sweet team!

      The meaning of "Calluna"

      Are you wondering what the name “Calluna” means? Here’s a little background for you: Calluna is the latin name of the Heather flower. Since the owner of Calluna Events is named Heather, she decided this was the perfect moniker for her company. What a wonderful and creative idea! You can take a peek at some of Calluna’s equally-creative work below, where I’ve shared images from Jessica and Max’s pretty Beaver Creek wedding at the Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa along with Zoe and Pete’s Larkspur wedding in Vail.

      Beautiful Colorado Wedding Details: Ceremony Arches

      Calluna Events values creating fresh, inspired weddings that truly represent their couples. Their goal is for your guests to walk into your wedding and feel that it really reflects the two of you. Therefore, authentic and timeless details are always a must! For example, at Jessica and Max’s wedding, The Perfect Petal created an eye-catching arch with lush feather grass. The end result was incredibly romantic, don’t you agree?

      Cocktail Hour and Reception Details

      The Perfect Petal carried Jessica and Max’s romantic theme throughout the entire wedding day. Feather grass made another appearance during both the cocktail hour and reception along with fun furnishings from Yonder House.

      With Colorado being one of one of the top destination wedding states in the country, it’s no surprise that most of Calluna Events’ clients are from outside of Colorado. Their Colorado destination wedding packages include coordination of all vendors, which allows you to relax from afar and trust that every single detail has been taken care of by Calluna Events on your behalf. It is always a privilege to work with Calluna Events and I look forward to teaming up again soon!
