Who We are

Wedding Planners in Denver

The journey began with a simple request from a friend: to be her personal attendant at her wedding. This role, unexpected at the time, sparked a passion within me for assisting friends, and eventually many others, in celebrating their most significant moments.

However, I quickly noticed that far too often, those closest to the couples—friends, parents, and loved ones— found themselves missing the celebrations they worked hard to help create because they so immersed in the logistical BTS details. I knew there had to be a better way.

And so, McArthur Weddings and Events was born.

Our goal is to ensure that every wedding is not only flawlessly organized but also fully enjoyed by everyone involved, especially those closest to the couple.

To Plan your day!

A Better Way

I founded this company in honor of my dad, a man whose guidance and encouragement were the cornerstones of my life. When I think of heartfelt hospitality - I think of him.

His passing in 2015 deeply impacted me, underscoring the significance of creating lasting memories with those we cherish. With this in mind, we focus on designing your day to prioritize meaningful moments with family and friends. Our goal is to help you build lasting memories, just like the ones I cherish with my dad.

Memories with Family & Friends are Priceless

"Having you as our wedding planner was not only a huge blessing, but also why the wedding day events ran smoothly and now are beautiful memories for us to treasure."
—Teresa, Mother of the Bride

Riana is the person you want on your team and by your side during your wedding day. She is always ready to lend a hand or a drink with a smile on her face.

You can most likely find her dancing on the sidelines well into the night! She joined this team of wedding planners in Denver in 2019.

A Boulder native, Heli (pronounced "hee-lee") got her start in event production on NBC’s Emmy Award winning hit show “The Voice”, where she was the Production Coordinator for Seasons 1-5. Always a theater kid at heart after getting her BFA in musical theater from NYU, she moved back to New York City where she worked as a Production Coordinator at some of the world’s leading non-profit arts institutions including BAM and The Shed. The pandemic brought Heli back to Boulder for some much needed fresh mountain air, and she’s been very lucky to be able to transform her nearly two decades of live event production experience into the event planning industry in Colorado - she loves love and is honored to get to assist couples in making their dream day a reality!

Mollie has been with us since moving to Colorado from Wisconsin. Her favorite part of the wedding day is when the ceremony and reception spaces are all set and the couple comes to see them for the first time! Helping to make each couple’s vision come out perfectly is so fun and rewarding, especially when little details and accents are involved. Helping to create the perfect wedding day is the best part of her week!

Assistant Planner

A lesson learned the hard way: the night before my sister’s wedding, she realized no one had confirmed the DJ, leading to a last-minute scramble. She had hired someone to decorate the party, and the coordinator was provided by the venue, but no one had thought through the whole picture of the day.

This moment illuminated how crucial it is to have every detail nailed down.

That's where we step in. Unlike other planners, we take the reins on final details and vendor communications two months before your wedding, ensuring a seamless day. Our approach is all about giving you peace of mind and a flawless celebration, without the last-minute surprises

We see the whole, detailed picture of your day...

...so you don't have to!

""One of the best things about them is how much they care. They want your day to be everything you hoped for just as much as you do."

—Erin, Bride

That is why...

• We collaborate with you to create the wedding of your dreams - nothing cookie cutter here

• We collaborate with each other as a team of planners who all bring unique knowledge and skills to make your experience the best possible

• We love building relationships and collaborating with professional planning partners (vendors) who we know provide amazing experiences for their couples

• Unlike other planners, we have no problem helping other vendors and will do whatever it takes to make sure you have the very best experience

We Work Better Together

Our goal is to always grow as people and in how we serve our couples.

For us, that means being up-to-date on industry training, learning from a nationwide planning group, asking for feedback, and making improvements so that our couples have the best wedding planning experience possible.

We value your voice in this process. If there is ever any way we can be of service to you, please let us know.

We are Continuously Improving

Our hope is that you would feel seen, known, and honored.


McArthur Weddings and Events values inclusion of all couples and love. We want to celebrate your love - what makes you and your partner unique!

Our hope is that throughout the wedding planning process you feel seen, known and honored in this space and your wedding would reflect that.

You are Welcome at This Table.

Fun Facts

If you want to know what's fueling me on your wedding day - it's surely a gluten-free breakfast burrito. Most likely from my favorite Denver coffee shop. 

Having a destination wedding? I will grab one on my way out of town- this ritual is serious.

Can breakfast burritos be a love language?


This is Lo. She's my little shadow and the most spoiled dog there ever was. She will also spend hours "working" on your wedding at my feet.

We love when couples included their dog in their wedding - they are "man's best friend" after all. 

Girl's Best Friend


People have often commented on how calm I seem on wedding days. I often attribute that to the level of patience, foresight, depth of planning, and flexibility I learned from years of teaching 5th and 6th graders.
