I had only been engaged for 24 hour hours and I already knew who I would be asking to plan what would be the BIGGEST day of our lives. I had seen her work and heard her name and without even meeting her I had made my decision. Calluna Events! Heather Dwight! It was a no-brainer. Within the first 60 seconds of our first phone call I knew this would be much more than a business transaction....and the day we met I knew she wouldn't just be our wedding planner...she was about to become one of my dearest friends. As we moved through the days, weeks, and months Heather continued to amaze me in countless ways. She carried the stress, managed the relationships, helped me make every decision (and made a lot for me ;) ), lined up the vendors, reviewed the contracts, worked with Devil's Thumb, handled every single detail, and most importantly brought my dreams to life! We arrived at Devil's Thumb on July 21st....2 days before our wedding. Heather made sure that those 2 days were relaxing and worry-free. Nate and I were able to enjoy the days prior to our wedding all because of Heather and her adorable/dependable assistant Sammy! We spent time with our families and friends, hiked, went to the pool, ate, drank, slept, and enjoyed everything DTR had to offer. On the day of our wedding we had 3 moving trucks full of decor (every thing from chandeliers, a teepee, couches, tables, chargers, silverware, goblets, tons of flowers, a donuts wall, donuts, chairs, etc) , more vendors than I can remember, unloading, loading, setting up, putting together, and people coming and going in every direction. Calluna handled it all! This allowed Nate and I to spend the morning together grabbing coffee, hiking with our dogs, sipping on mimosas, and soaking up the morning sun at our cabin. There was ZERO stress. To say our wedding was a dream come true would be a total understatement! It was pure MAGIC! The most magical day of my life! It was perfect in every way. And if something went wrong...I still don't know about it. Every vendor we used was because of Heather and every single one brought their A game. Calluna Events aka. Our Wedding Dream Team, KILLED IT! When I woke up the morning after our wedding I couldn't help but cry. I was more perfect than I couldn't have ever imagined! I always knew our wedding would be special but Calluna Events made it memorable in every possible way! Like I already said, Heather wasn't just a wedding planner.....she is now one of my dearest friends! Nate and I will be be including Heather and Calluna Events in every major life event moving forward. Why? Because not only is Heather close to our hearts but her planning skills are perfection! WE LOVE YOU, HEATHER!
Heather at Calluna Events was an absolute dream wedding planner! We're so happy we chose Heather to plan our wedding and couldn't have been more pleased with her execution in a somewhat complicated venue in Vail. Her many years of experience completely shined through across the event and this became even more clear when 50 or more of our guests said to us and our parents "this is hands down the best wedding I have ever been to!" All of our guests are still raving about how amazing the entire wedding day was for them. Thank you Heather!!!
BEST WEDDING PLANNER IN COLORADO!Reviewed on 9/15/2015 Kat R
I cannot say enough good things about Heather and her team at Calluna Events. This was hands down one of the best decisions that I made in the wedding planning process. She has so many amazing contacts in the business, and it is clear that everyone she works with loves and respects her. Heather is incredibly creative, has such a wonderful eye for detail, and always carries herself gracefully and with confidence. Even when it came down to the final moments before the wedding, she was so calm and easy to be around. I miss our daily e-mails and phone chats. I would highly recommend Calluna Events to any future brides. They are the best of the best!
We could not have been more thrilled with our decision to hire Calluna (Heather) as our day-of coordinator. She is incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and had worked with almost all of our vendors. I had absolutely no concerns the day of the wedding knowing Heather was behind all the details to make sure everything developed the way my husband and I dreamed it would. Hands down, best decision!
Heather and her team are the absolute best. We had a summer wedding and I still have guests talking about how much fun they had- 7 months ago. Other than pointing out a color scheme (gold, white, emerald green) and a couple unusual must-haves (bouncy castle, lego cake, ASL interpreter...) I didn't have a very specific vision. I trusted her to pull together all the specifics completely. She has amazing taste and an eye for detail. Our wedding was not only visually gorgeous- it was smooth and stress-free. What I love most is how Heather truly gets excited for your big day- and makes you feel like you're the only bride she's working with (even though Calluna is in high demand and I'm sure she's working on wedding every weekend). She will meet you for coffee and squeal over pictures and brainstorm ideas as if you've been friends for years. Did I mention she has incredible ideas? If I got to do it all over again- I would choose Calluna, hands down. She has amazing creative relationships with all the top vendors, she has impeccable taste, and seamless execution. Worth every penny.
Calluna Events came into my life by complete chance. My parents were visiting our future wedding venue and happened to meet Heather, who was coordinating a wedding at the venue that day. They instantly connected to her calm demeanor, organization and knowledge. Upon meeting Heather and her team, we knew this was the perfect match! Kaylee was our wedding coordinator and we can't say enough about how wonderful she was. She was patient, organized, and so sweet. The planning process was truly FUN, much thanks to Kaylee's expertise. The month of and day of were flawless, again all thanks to Kaylee and her team. For us, a wedding was about enjoying our time with friends and family, not fretting over the small stuff. Calluna made this possible and we couldn't be more grateful.
Calluna Events- and Heather specifically- helped us every step along the way to create the best wedding we could have imagined. Even with the two of us having different tastes and visions, Calluna was able to match us with the vendors necessary to blend our styles and create the perfect day. Their expertise in managing the wedding day itself ensured that we could relax and enjoy the event. While we have seen many of our friends loaded with stress and bombarded by questions on their wedding day, we both spent the day with our friends and families knowing Calluna would handle everything for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the relationship we built with Heather, and highly recommend Calluna Events.
As an event professional I knew how important it was to hire a planner. Calluna was a dream come true to work with. I was truly able to turn off my own event planner brain and just enjoy the day. It was a true blessing to be able to trust that my vision would be brought to life by this amazing team. If you are considering hire a planner look no further. Calluna is unmatched in their professionalism, creativity and knowledge of the business.
My husband, Sean, and I are now very happily married and we couldn't have done it without Heather and team at Calluna Events. To say the least, our winter wedding in Vail was an absolute dream. From the very start, Heather listened carefully to my vision and recommended the best vendors who she was confident could make that vision come to life. Every step of the way, Heather offered up her sense of creativity and helped make our wedding truly unique and different. On the day of the wedding, like most brides, I woke up a nervous stress case. Did everyone know where to be and when? Does everyone have their marching orders? But the second Heather walked into our getting ready room, she brought with her a certain calm that I really needed more than anything in that moment. A few hours later, I walked down the aisle feeling totally serene and only thinking about the man standing in front of me (as it should be!). The wedding went off without a hitch, as they say. Heather did an incredible job coordinating our vendors on the day-of and everything could not have looked more perfect -- a blissful, cozy, intimate and lovely mountain winter wedding (complete with 10 inches of fresh powdery snow). Thanks a million for all the incredible memories, Calluna Events!
Calluna Events was great to work with. Kaylee was so well organized and created an amazing wedding with stunning details that made a beautiful space look even better. I would highly recommend working with them, they will ensure your wedding is a dream come true and that it goes off without a hitch!
I’d guess that many brides are like me, and haven’t had a lot of practice with any part of the wedding planning process before they get engaged. Heather took a potentially overwhelming process, and turned it into a wedding that was easy, magical, fun, and so much better than we could have imagined.
Heather assisted us in providing day of services for our wedding at the St. Julien Hotel. The wedding ran very smoothly and we were very grateful for her conducting the day as this took a lot of pressure off of us so that we could truly enjoy ourselves. She was also very helpful in providing suggestions as needed leading up to our wedding. Thank you again to a great Team at Calluna!
Heather was absolutely wonderful to work with on the planning of our wedding. We chose to get married on a ranch in Wyoming and from day one, Heather was in contact with the ranch's team, setting up site visits, and beginning to coordinate all of the details. She has an extensive number of vendors that she has worked with that she could recommend to us. We were blown away by the quality of the floral team, the photographers, and the stationary teams that she has worked with and their work was incredibly professional and top of the line. She has great working relationships with these folks too, so it felt like there was a good chemistry between our team on the days leading up to our wedding, and the day of the wedding. On our actual wedding day, Heather's calm and grounding energy went a long way to calm the inevitable nerves that came up. She was attentive to both the logistical details and emotional experience of bride, groom, and family. I would absolutely recommend working with Heather and her team; they are truly outstanding! We could not have envisioned a more beautiful wedding; she totally got our vision and made it a reality and dream come true.
Heather did a fantastic job with our wedding. We hired Calluna Events for Day-Of-Coordination and were so happy we did. We felt so taken care of from the big things to the small things, from the time we hired (9 months prior) to the very end. Heather is very professional and personable at the same time and her assistants were so sweet and very helpful. I highly recommend Calluna Events whether you need full planning, partial, or day-of. They know what they're doing! Thank you Calluna Events for making our wedding day even better than we could've imagined. xoxo, Gracie Swansinger
We worked with Heather at Calluna for our wedding and are so thankful that we did! Heather and her team are the perfect mix of professional and fun! I did not have to worry about a thing on the day of our wedding! I could just enjoy the day feeling calm and happy!
Heather listened to our dreams and goals, made them better and then turned them into reality. We met Heather in November without a venue or a clue about how to plan a wedding, but with a goal to bring family and friends together in a beautiful, rustic chic Colorado mountain community by late winter. She helped us select Dunton Hot Springs for our weekend getaway and then planned the entire wedding from start to finish. The results were magical. Our goal was to show our family how much we appreciated their love and support and to share how happy we were to be together. Everything about the entire wedding was put together with such attention to detail and care of our vision. Heather has the unique ability to select venue, vendors and design elements that pair perfectly together. There was not a single detail that felt out of place. Our guests were immediately taken care of with beautiful hand-designed guests bags with maps, directions, itinerary and all of the wonderful Colorado goodies, including hand illustrated wine bottles. Our wedding decor was beyond beautiful. The flowers, design, stemware, plates, chargers, custom dyed silk, lighting, chairs and everything in between was so unmistakable "Colorado rustic chic" it took our breath away. It all fit beautifully and was better than we had even imagined. Our photographers and videographers captured everything about that day so we can share it for years to come. Heather even arranged fireworks!!! We were able to fully enjoy our family and friends in this special place and had no stress while we planned the wedding or even during the entire weekend. Our dream team that Heather assembled made our special day truly a once in a lifetime experience and we will be forever grateful!
Professional, creative, trustworthy. Just a few ways I would describe Calluna after working with them for my own wedding. No detail was spared throughout the planning process, which gave me the confidence to relax on the big day. I will recommend Calluna to friends and family in the future.
Where do I even start!? Now that our wedding has passed I miss working with these ladies so much! The Calluna Events team makes wedding dreams come true. They are so professional, driven, genuine, creative and unique. The list goes on and on! I interviewed pretty much every planner that I could find in the state of Colorado and Calluna won my vote and heart from the beginning. My lead planner was Heather and she guided and believed in my vision from the beginning. Also did I mention I live in San Diego? Heather and Samatha were my ladies on the ground in Colorado making sure everything was on track and organized. I grew up in the small town of Craig, CO with a Big Fat Greek family and a guest list of 500 plus. With dreams to get married in my small church I grew up in, we set out on a mission to find a place to would host a glamorous celebration. Which is very hard to come by in NW CO. We tried and mapped out many different venues and nothing was working out. We had to change our venue plans five months before the wedding because our original venue wouldn’t fit all the people. So, the only place left if town was the local ice skating rink. Heather kept a positive attitude through the whole thing and kept pushing forward, especially during the times where I felt discouraged and overwhelmed by the idea of transforming the ice skating rink into a ballroom. On the day of my wedding, there we so many moments that I will always cherish and remember about Calluna. Including Heather removing a large grease stain that I got on the front of my dress second before walking down the aisle and reminding me to smile through it all. And, our late night dance party that we had to celebrate such an incredible accomplishment. I didn’t see the venue until the moment I walked in with my groom after our ceremony and I started crying and hugging Heather because it was absolutely breathtaking and more exquisite than I could have ever imagined. So many people have told me that even though our guest count was 500 people it felt as intimate as a 100 person wedding and many people have said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. It wouldn’t have been possible without Heather and her team. Calluna coordinated everything for our wedding reception, I was able to relax and enjoy every special moment. Something that I believe is priceless and that every bride should invest in. I’m so thankful for Calluna Events, Heather went from my wedding planner to a very special friend!
Working with Calluna was the best thing we could have done. We had a lot going on during our wedding planning season and Heather and Spice at Calluna made wedding planning a breeze. We had a lot of weird family dynamics adding into the mix and she made the day go so well. Between surgeries and cancer and new babies coming to the world all during a 9 month engagement it seemed hectic but Calluna was so helpful and really helped my vision in my head come out on paper. We had a pretty blank slate venue and they made the room come alive. We had so many compliments on our weeding. I would highly recommend this Calluna Events.
If you get the pleasure of working with Calluna you know your wedding will be absolutely flawless. Heather & team are professional, unflappable and literally the best in the business. BOOK CALLUNA.
Anyone who says planning a wedding is stressful, obviously didn't work with Heather and her amazing crew at Calluna! I worked with Heather from the early planning stages of my wedding. She found our amazing venue, helped me develop a vision, recommended great vendors, and expertly mapped out the day of coordination. I knew I had a great wedding planner, but I didn't realize I had the BEST wedding planner until the weekend of the wedding. Heather went above and beyond. She even came up a night early to help run our rehearsal and brought 2 additional planners with her. I floated our wedding day, without a care in the world, because Heather and her team were working tirelessly behind the scenes to make everything seem effortless. I can't say enough about her patience, enthusiasm, and impeccable taste. She made our day perfect.
Heather and Francesca from Calluna are amazing. Their attention to detail is astonishing, and it is because of them that we had the most amazing wedding. Francesca's vendor recommendations were spot on and were key to creating the wedding that we both envisioned. She was also extremely organized, professional and friendly. I would recommend Francesca and Calluna in a heart beat, they truly made our day!
Calluna Events is awesome! We were getting married at The Four Seasons when the catering manager we were working with left a week and a half before the wedding! We were in a panic when Calluna stepped in and really wowed us! They were beyond professional and they were always right there when we needed them. They took care of all the details so we were able to enjoy our day to the fullest. They are dedicated to their work as wedding planners and it shows! I wish we had hired them from the get-go. I would highly recommend them to anyone for wedding planning. I can not say enough good things about them! Thank you Heather, Spice and the Calluna team for everything!
What a wonderful experience!Reviewed on 9/14/2015 Mary Agnes B
We married on our alpaca farm and hosted a sit down dinner for 120 people. Calluna worked with us on everything and helped make our day perfect! The feedback from friends and family was universal - our wedding was one of the most beautiful our guests had ever attended. We couldn't have done it without the Calluna staff. All we had to do was describe what we wanted and they took care of the rest. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation. Large or small weddings, these women know what they're doing and will work to make everything perfect. Loved them!
Our daughter’s beautiful wedding took place last weekend at the Vail Wedding Deck and Donovan Pavilion in Vail, Colorado. As you might imagine with 2 venues, the logistics were a bit tricky, and the weather made it even more complicated. Fortunately for us, we had Heather Dwight leading the team from Calluna Events. Heather, Gabby and Spice flawlessly pulled everything together. These ladies are true pros at what they do. They kept everyone on track beginning the night before at the rehearsal and continuing through the day of the wedding. They were masters at coordinating all the vendors and kept the reception flowing while remaining unobtrusive in the background. Well done, ladies! Thank you so, so much. It was a great experience and I only wish I had another daughter so together we could do this all over again!
