We tapped TGE for month-of coordination for our wedding in September at the Denver Botanic Gardens/ 54Thirty. We worked directly with Adrienne (President/Founder) and our experience was FLAWLESS.
TGE supported us on everything from our budge...
t to the wrangling of vendors across two venues, week of fire-drills, a well-oiled machine of a ceremony... and the list goes on. Whatever the ask TGE was there always going above and beyond.
Knowing that our day was in her hands enabled me to focus on enjoying myself and not on logistics. Save yourself the headache and the stress. This team is the best and I can't recommend them enough.

Ugh are 3500 characters enough to talk about the ways I love/loved TGE? I worked with Kelly and she was just amazing beyond words. She handled our wedding in an efficient, matter-of-fact, empathetic, caring and budget-friendly way. I always ha...
d a million little questions and concerns about silly wedding things that brides worry about and Kelly was always able to answer them when I saw her or emailed her. She remembered all the little details that sometimes we forgot. On the day of, I didn't even look at the time or worry about anything. I just asked Kelly and she knew where I should be, what I should be doing, it was all so easy, or at least she made it seem to be. She brought an assistant (Natasha), who was also very prepared and knowledgeable. One piece of advice though, always listen to your wedding planner about how much alcohol to order! We thought we needed more than what Kelly ordered for us, and ended up returning half after the wedding. We ran out of Whiteclaws before dinner though, nobody saw that coming. They were having a 2019 moment, clearly.

I cannot more highly recommend The Gardner Effect. From my first meeting with Lo to every single meeting with Kelly, I felt like I was in great hands. I got the vendor management package in addition to the day of services and I couldn't be hap...
pier with that choice. Kelly found great options for me to choose from and was committed to answering every question I had (and there were many!) promptly and knowledgeably. The closer we got to the date, the better I felt knowing that Kelly would be there every step of the way to help me on the big day. Kelly and her assistant Gabe made our wedding day absolutely seamless. They were on top of every decor detail, every vendor interaction, and every item on the timeline. I'm sure some things went wrong on the wedding day, but I had absolutely no idea of them because Kelly took care of it. Thank you so much to Kelly for all the planning help, Gabe for helping execute such a beautiful day, Lo for her incredibly warm welcome, and all the staff at TGE! You are the best.

My daughter just got married at the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. I live in North Carolina, so the bridal couple did most of the planning. They worked with Kasandre Brown, who couldn't have been more wonderful. She is so experienced, pro...
fessional, calm, responsive, and reassuring that we were all able to relax. We really appreciated her thoughtfulness. For example, she offered to take the decorations (signs, seating chart, etc.) from my daughter during the rehearsal and then to set them up prior to the ceremony and reception. She had an emergency kit with all the supplies a wedding party might need to get ready. During the reception, she worked well with the florist, caterers, venue staff, and d.j. to make sure everything went smoothly. She was constantly available to me to help with the little details that cropped up, such as identifying the one guest who couldn't eat cake so I could get her the toffee we had as a substitute dessert and asking that the Chatfield staff put more toilet paper in the women's rest room. My goal was for my daughter and her new husband to be relieved of all duties other than enjoying themselves and socializing with friends and family. Thanks to Kasandre, that was definitely the case. I highly recommend her!

ding up to our assignment with planner Kelly. Kelly was very organized, professional, and sweet! Our emails, phone calls, and the walk through all went so smoothly and she was very efficient in coordinating with our other vendors. TGE has an online planning portal to help you consolidate all the little details you otherwise might forget about, which was very helpful! Kelly managed all the requests I threw at her with ease, from needing to pick up our bouquets a few hours early from the florist to keeping tabs on when our Uber/get away car arrived and getting us out the door to it! She also was so kind and sent me a sweet text the morning of to check in prior to all the madness. Many things stuck with me from our sweet day, but little things like that also stood out and made us feel extra special!
TGE's attention to detail and kindness took all the stress out of our planning process- would not have done it any other way! Thank you TGE, we highly recommend!

After speaking with a number of coordinators (I'm big on doing my research!) we opted for TGE and worked with Kelly K. as a day of/month of wedding coordinator. She did a really great job providing recommendations for other vendors, answering a...
ll emails (within a few days in the weeks leading up to the event and within hours the week of the event), and leaving no detail left untouched. We truly felt everything was covered which took a lot of stress off our plates prior to the wedding. On the wedding day, she came through big time - we had some crazy Colorado weather to contend with before the ceremony and the potential for more during the reception which meant we had to call some audibles that day. Even with the changes she kept us on track - our guests were none the wiser, we only had to take a few seconds to make a decision, then she took care of the rest seamlessly. Would definitely recommend Kelly (and TGE) again. She got sh*t done with a calm presence, ensuring the day went as smoothly as possible - Exactly what I was looking for in a coordinator. Our wedding was truly the best day yet, in large part thanks to Kelly's efforts!

We've been told that our poor experience with TGE was anomalous, but feel it should be shared before anyone else suffers the same fate. Our planner was assigned a month out. Prior to that our experiences with Lauren "Lo" were great. This was...
apparently the "sales" period. Our assigned "coordinator" could hold a clipboard and fog a mirror. She did not (1) show up on time the day of the wedding (her assistant came into the getting ready area twice to ask if she had arrived and if we knew where she was ... we saw Kelly come in nearly an hour later), (2) make sure that the things we discussed at the walk through were accomplished (e.g., there were twice as many chairs set out for the ceremony as we discussed), (3) attend to the one issue we asked of her during rehearsal (that is, working with the venue to turn on the cooler in the mens area before they arrived, rather, they had neither a cooler nor lights), (4) keep our guests informed and moving (she did not announce dinner - but also would not be flexible enough to just let us join our guests in the cocktail hour space when we expressed an interest in doing so), (5) demonstrate energy or enthusiasm or initiative (we knew better than to bring her a problem - she would have no idea how to solve it - but even when we asked her to take a proactive step, she had to ask how to accomplish that: please talk to the venue, "so, you want me to call them???"). Also, we've learned since our wedding that several cards mysteriously disappeared from the card box. Now, we can't say that a TGE person stole them, but we can say that several folks put cards in and were observed doing so, only TGE handled that card box between then and when we got it, and the cards were not in there when we got the box. So, in sum, this is an extremely overpriced clean up service that risks the loss of your cards (and anything that might be inside them - checks, gift cards, etc.).

We loved working with Lauren (Lo) from the day we met her! We recommended to her by our florist who said that she would be straight forward with us and get things done! Yes! That's what I needed to help plan our wedding. She was available to us...

She has a passion for what she does and makes sure that every detail is looked at throughout the planning process. Her expertise, communication, dedication, and creativity were shown every step of the way. Even when we were on our “calm waiting period”, Adrienne would always check in at least weekly to see if we had any questions or needed anything.
We couldn’t wait to see the outcome of the wedding given the thought and dedication Adrienne put into our wedding… all we can say is that our dream fairytale wedding came to life!! The setup, décor, and everything we ever wanted was incorporated into our wedding ceremony and reception. In addition, she finely executed all our wishes on our wedding day, and far exceeded our expectations. There was not one thing that went bad during the wedding and throughout the whole planning process. Whenever you needed something or had a question, Adrienne was always there to help.
Adrienne’s vendors were all fabulous and easy to work with as well. What we liked the best was the fact she kept everyone on the same page, so there wouldn’t be any miscommunication. Adrienne really helped us make final decisions easier, worked directly with all the vendors to ensure they all knew our vision and needs. This lifted a lot of weight off our shoulders and knew we were making the right decisions.
All we can say is how grateful we were to have had such an organized and amazing wedding planner for our special day. Everything went seamlessly and wouldn’t have changed a thing!! I highly recommend The Gardner Effect to anyone who wants a wedding/event to be flawless!!

ful mountains in the background. The entire reason we picked the venue we did was for this view. This dinner was the most important part of the wedding to us. Kelly did not advocate for us and our vision. Rather it felt like she railroaded us into moving our dinner site to under a tent where we were planning on dancing later in the evening. Of course, it didn’t rain. At all. Not a single drop. I know she can’t be expected to predict the weather accurately she is not a meteorologist. But she was looking at radars saying two storms were coming with such confidence and all the time the weather app on my phone said no chance of rain. She wanted what was convenient for her and the caterers which was to move everything under the tent. She didn’t care that I was upset or that I had my heart set on having dinner outside. She didn’t advocate for me and my husband and our vision. If you want someone on your side the wedding day, its not TGE. They will do what’s best for the other vendors not what’s best for you. If you want someone who is there for you on your wedding day, and is there to execute your vision then find a planner that will really go to bat for you. We wish we had. We also had issues with her later in the evening; when it came time do our cake cutting she was no where to be found and my husband and I spent half an hour looking for her and sending others to look for her so we could cut our cake.
She did do a good job of executing our details but ultimately she failed to advocate for us and our vision and ruined our special day.

that is not their strong suit. If you know that you want white tablecloths with pink ribbon tied around the chairs just so, I found that these gals will absolutely make sure that the pink ribbon is tied EXACTLY how you want it and the white tablecloths will be EXACTLY the color white you want. If you want them to brainstorm and offer ideas, in my experience, this was lacking. Perhaps they want you to be in charge, I'm not sure. But I did not go into this with a "vision" and needed some guidance, and I felt they fell a little short on that. Also, not the easiest to reach. Leading up to our date, I would often receive automatic email replies that it was the busy season and they may not be able to respond quickly. My feeling is that they should absolutely be responding promptly to folks who are 1-2 weeks out. But overall, they were great--especially so on the actual day!

Adrienne was simply amazing. She was an incredible value. I didn't realize just how much I needed a day of planner, and am so thankful that my venue required it, and recommended such an amazing person. Adrienne took such good care of us, and...
handled all of the things that I didn't even know I needed to handle. She kept our wedding day flowing perfectly, and was able to make spur of the moment changes as needed. I felt comfortable leaving our reception knowing that our venue would be cleaned to my standards, and that everything would be tied up and handled according to all of my contract requirements. She was absolutely amazing. I would recommend her over and over again!
