Why I cost so "much"...

I have had quite a few brides come to me lately and say they wanted planning for $500...I promptly let them know that I would not be able to plan or coordinate their day for that price.

Pricing involves more than just setting a price - I factor in time, travel, guest number, venue, etc.,  and that doesn't even begin to name everything included to run my business such as marketing materials, advertising and much more.

Below are a few articles about why planners cost what they do, definitely worth a read.

Real Wedding at Seven's Restaurant, Breckenridge - Kassendra and Brandon

"They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this..."

Seven's Restaurant

We had the honor of working with Kassendra and Brandon to plan the final details of their wedding at Seven's Restaurant in Breck last August.  Seven's is located at the base of peak 7 and it offers a beautiful view of the valley below.  Their wedding was classic and chic, and an all around fantastic day.  They were married on the deck of the restaurant over looking the mountains.  It was stunning. 

After the ceremony was over, they jumped on the gondola to take some pictures.  One of the most important things for them was for them to get pictures with their dog. 

Once they arrived back to Seven's, we introduced the bridal party and then sat down for a wonderful meal.  After dinner, the dancing portion of the evening started.  They kicked it off by having their first dance to Lucky by Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz (one of my all time favorite songs!!). 

The guys from Sweet Sounds Entertainment did a wonderful job of keeping the dance floor packed all night.  As it got later into the evening, we provided a late night snack for all the guests - popcorn!  The guests loved it!
Thank you Kassendra and Brandon for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day.  Couples like you really make me love my job.  You both are  so gracious and genuine.  Your wedding was truly spectacular.  I loved all the small details that were woven into your day.  I know you have many bright days ahead.
