The recommendations she made for vendors from food to flowers and everything in between made booking great vendor teams so easy. She is SO detail oriented and I felt 💯 confident going into our day that it would be perfect.

2. Have A Wedding That Is TRULY YOU

We get it. The last thing you want is for your guests to walk into your wedding and think, “Haven’t I seen this on Pinterest?” or “This reminds me of Karen from Accounting’s wedding.” That’s why when you choose to work with us, you’re not just getting a planner; you’re gaining a creative partner dedicated to making sure your wedding is authentically you.

We think outside the typical wedding box to come up with meaningful touches that will make your guests say, “Only they would think of that!”  You’re not a cookie-cutter couple, so why should your special day be any less unique? When you work with us, your wedding becomes a personalized masterpiece, setting a new standard for what a truly customized wedding experience can be.

We had a bunch of variables – my 100 lbs sweet but powerful pup was in our ceremony and signing our marriage license, we decided to shuttle all of our guests to Evergreen …my husband and I wanted to not see each other until I walked down the aisle – which in a small outdoor venue can definitely be a challenge, and in classic Colorado summer fashion we got a big rainstorm mid-ceremony. But absolutely everything went perfectly! My crazy transportation plan all happened and I heard nothing about it…I truly can’t thing of one thing I would go back and change, and that was in huge part to McArthur.

She took over all vendor communication 2 months before the wedding and MADE. IT. HAPPEN. Laura coordinated a vendor walk through and while I was taking notes of all the “to-dos”, she very gently turned to me and said, “I’ve got it.” My family walked away from the meeting feeling completely at ease knowing that the wedding would be executed by Laura and her team in a flawless way that required no additional stress for us, our families, or our wedding party/guests.

Not only did Laura and Heli plan and coordinate our wedding day, but they were also incredibly generous on the day of. For example, Laura worked on cleaning a mud stain off my dress after the ceremony and Heli helped me change shoes on the trail to and from the ceremony site at Juniper Mountain House. I feel very grateful to have worked with them and would recommend McArthur Weddings & Events to anyone who wants help planning their big day!
