Investing in a wedding planner is one of the best decisions we made for our daughter’s wedding and selecting Natasha of Sugar Willow Events was THE best decision! If you are lucky enough to be in Colorado, or other areas she serves, look no further! As an out of state Mother of the Bride, Natasha’s knowledge of local vendors was invaluable. While we found the venue before choosing Sugar Willow, she gave us countless great suggestions, and always multiple options, on other vendors, especially in the area of design and floral, rentals, signage, hair and make-up, etc. And once we were inside of two weeks, she coordinated with ALL of our vendors (including venue, hotel, photographer and videographer, DJ, caterer, etc.). Natasha built great timelines that meant the “day of” ran like a well greased machine. No detail was too small to be included and the Sugar Willow Events team executed things flawlessly on my daughter’s wedding day! Being the mother of a 2020 Bride had unique challenges, and through it all, Natasha communicated frequently with us (conference calls , emails and Zoom) , keeping abreast of state, county and venue guidelines which were constantly changing. She was the stress-releasing presence during months of uncertainty, and kept my bride (and me) calm. For that alone, we will forever be grateful! She was a wonderful sounding board, and as the MOB, if I had a different idea from my daughter, I could ask, “Natasha, in your experience….?” and it didn’t seem like I was telling my daughter what to do…but make know mistake, the wedding was our daughter’s vision and thanks to Sugar Willow her wedding matched that vision! The day before the wedding, Natasha ran a very efficient rehearsal and while a bit non-traditional, she had the brilliant suggestion to seat the parents of the Bride and Groom on the opposite sides of their daughter and son. This meant that during the ceremony, I was seeing my daughter’s face and not the back of her head (the same for the Groom’s parents). Natasha’s guidance on when to to what, how to set up a reception with Social Distancing, suggestions on vendor gratuities and so much more, took the guesswork out of planning a wedding. Most of all, she allowed this Mother of the Bride to be relaxed and enjoy my only daughter’s wedding day from start to finish! When the last song had had been played and guests were departing, she had everything pack and ready to load! The day still went by so quickly, but thanks to Sugar Willow Events, I enjoyed every moment!
