With Gratitude

I love being a destination wedding planner here in Colorado.  I love the details of weddings and I love getting to meet the friends and families of the clients / friends on their big gorgeous days . . .  But these thank you’s fill my heart.

I recently got this email from the lovely Sarah (her wedding was this October at C Lazy U Ranch . . .

Kara, I want the world to know how great you are. I talked to you for not even 5 minutes but you really touched me. Thank you. Here’s my review of you… Thanks for being so responsive to me throughout all of this, and for making my day.

“Kara is amazing! I am one of those girls who knows what she wants, knows what it looks like in my head, but couldn’t tell you a name of a flower if my life depended on it. I sent Kara a million pictures of the bouquets I wanted for my girls, myself, and all the flowers for my ceremony and reception. I gave her my budget and basically said “get it done.” And she did, brilliantly. She managed to take a piece of every picture I sent her and combined them all in to original bouquets and original pieces that mimicked my decor, setting, and theme. I also decided a month before the wedding that I wanted to change EVERYTHING- colors, styles, boutonnieres etc. and she changed it all without an up-charge, and without being even a little irritated with me. She brought petals for my flower girls, which I forgot I needed until a couple days before the wedding, and when she came down with our bouquets to where we were all getting dressed and ready, it was like the sun came out. She has a contagious laugh and an incredible positive energy. Kara was an absolute pleasure to work with at all stages of the game, even when I was not. icon smile With Gratitude I planned my wedding from the other side of the country and never once worried about the flowers being perfect. Her work is amazing and everyone noticed. Even the groom. If you need a florist, for anything, she’s the way to go. I believe her company also offers other wedding related services, and if I had to do it all over again, I would have had them do it all. She really understood what I needed as a bride, someone to just be efficient and affordable, and give me exactly what I had envisioned.”

“I knew the second that we first spoke that everything would be great.  Thank you for being down to earth and telling it like it is.  You calm was a great sense of relief throughout  this process – not to mention your energy because everything looked FABULOUS.  Thank you for all of your work as my florist, day-of coordinator and friend through out our wedding planning process and on our big day.

THANK YOU for making our wedding everything we wanted and more. I mean… it was just so perfect, and so perfectly Annie and Brad. I really cannot thank you enough Kara, for putting up with us during the busy planning process and for coming up with so many lovely touches to make it the rustically elegant party that we were hoping for!  You are VERY good at what you do!

Grand Lake Lodge Wedding 2 With Gratitude

Dear Kara — We had an old aunt who, when she wanted to thank someone for a nice time, would begin with the phrase, “Words fail me…” and then go on using a lot of words to thank someone! So….words (almost) fail me! Your wonderful planning skills, good taste, patience, incredible hard work and upbeat personality all combined to make a fabulous wedding weekend for Emily and Dan. I think it was perfect for them and just what they wanted. Emily said on the way up to their cabin on Saturday night Dan said that it was the best night of his life and 10 times better than he had thought it would be! That’s high praise coming from Dan! Emily thought everything went flawlessly–you probably knew there were things that didn’t, but she didn’t need to know that. Thank you so much from all of us. I know for certain that we couldn’t have done it with out you.   The flowers were absolutely stunning everywhere I looked and I loved the combination of milk glass and birch bark.

“Dear Kara, Thank you again so much for all you did to make our wedding weekend so special. I know you think of yourself as behind the scenes, but you are front and center in all my beautiful memories of the weekend.  The flowers were perfect, the ceremony and reception room details were beautiful and I know I could not have made the flow so seamless without you.  You are simply the best and I plan to let the world know.  I know that we will all move on and out lives will take over but you place in the most beautiful  day of my life will never fade”
