We are so fortunate that Carey chose you as her wedding planner. You were an absolute dream to work with and the wedding was spectacular. You are the best at what you do.
-Malcolm + Stacey, December 2021 - Broadmoor Hotel
I cannot thank you enough for making my planning process everything I wanted it to be. Every meeting and phone call was a joy to have and I would love an excuse to do it all over again. I am so thrilled to have met you along the way. We will be back at the Broadmoor next year to celebrate so please make some time for a glass of bubbly and time to catch up.
-Kira + Nathan, August 2021 - Cheyenne Lodge at The Broadmoor Hotel
We had Alyssa as our day of coordinator and she was AMAZING! She was always so professional and organized. We decided to postpone our wedding and I was a bit unorganized with the planning the second time around, but Alyssa was always on top of it. She made sure everything was exactly how we wanted on the wedding day. On the day of there were a few mishaps, but no one would have ever known because Alyssa took care of it. Because of her we actually got to take it all in and enjoy our wedding day! We highly recommend Alyssa and the Sarah Viera Event Planning & Design Team!
-Lynn + Alex, August 2021 - Bonnie Blues
Ok, so let's be honest - I was a little annoyed that my venue required a wedding planner for the day of and I was also a little annoyed at the prices for day of planners (not Sarah specifically but just in general) because I thought to myself "How much can they possibly be doing if I'm planning everything leading up to it" and "How good can they possibly be if we are only having a few conversations leading up to the day but I was the one who organized everything up until that point." I would just like to go on record to say that I was wrong. I don't know if I was wrong for every day of planner, but I most definitely was wrong about Sarah. She went above and beyond in helping me - even when I'm pretty sure it didn't fall under her official roles and responsibilities. I was a covid bride and Sarah was SUPER accommodating in pushing the wedding out, helped with recommendations and answered questions in the months leading up to the event, and helped to make sure everything was neat and tidy before the big day. I was definitely nervous if things would come together with me handing everything off to Sarah but let me tell you....THE DAY WAS PERFECT. I didn't have to think about anything or worry about what came next. It was like Sarah was everywhere at once and doing everything because I literally didn't have to do anything except enjoy my day. My mom was planning on being the one who sort of helped keep everything moving (at least from a set up/break down perspective) and anytime she went to do something, Sarah was right there saying "No no no. let me do that!". My mom is not easily impressed and she couldn't stop raving about Sarah. If you are on the fence about hiring a wedding or day of planner - jump off that fence right now! At least if you're considering Sarah :)
-Holly + Ari, July 2021 - Piney River Ranch
Hiring Alyssa of Sarah Viera Events as our day-of coordinator was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding day! Alyssa's attention to detail, professionalism, and organization helped make the weeks leading up to and the day of our wedding go so smoothly and stress-free. She was a joy to work with and we would recommend hiring a day-of coordinator through SVE to all future brides!
-Sara + Gabe, June 2021 - Bonnie Blues
I really cannot say enough wonderful things about Sarah Viera. She was organized, punctual, classy and all around lovely to work with. She is experienced in the field, quick to respond to emails, had excellent recommendations for photographers/vendors and was able to answer every question and concern we had. She made us feel at ease when our venue had to make a last minute location change from an outside ceremony to inside due to rain. She exceeded my expectations in every way and made our day feel like a top priority. Sarah is really the gold standard of wedding planning - would recommend to any bride to be!
-Mariel + Brian, June 2021 - Broadmoor Hotel
OMG your sweet gift to us is incredible!!! Thank you doesn't even begin to do justice to the gratitude I have for you! Truly. You kept me so calm and our drive to the chapel is something I will never forget. You and I just totally meshed throughout the whole process and clearly we were meant to be in each other's lives. Thank you for literally EVERYTHING!!!
-Laura + Jimmy, June 2021 - Garden of the Gods Resort
Kelliann, I don't know how we can ever thank you for the most perfect weekend! We absolutely could not have done it without you! All your organization, ideas, and flexibility brought everything together, Thank you so very much! I know your summer will be very full with other weddings but I hope you remember ours and smile!
-Cindy Thomas - Mother of the Bride, June 2021 - Garden of the Gods Resort
Thank you so much for all of your help and hard work on our wedding. The entire day was a dream come true and there is no way we could have pulled it off without you. Hiring SVE was the best decision we ever made!
-Jessica + Evan, October 2020 - Garden of the Gods Resort
Having a covid wedding means we can send thank yous late right? Thank you again for everything you did. We would not be married without you. Hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe. You were amazing!
-Sarah + Thomas, August 2020 - Broadmoor Hotel
You absolutely amaze me. You took over and created the wedding of our dreams in so little time. You took away all the stress leading up to the wedding and I am forever grateful for that. Everything you did the day of was perfect and you worked so hard. Thank you for the serving utensils and newlywed cookbook. We are so excited to try some recipes. Thank you again for everything! Much love!
-Janae + Zach, July 2020 - Spruce Mountain Ranch
We cannot thank you enough for all of your help planning our wedding! Especially for the execution today, making sure everything was what we hoped and dreamed it would be. We could not have planned our wedding without you, you are simply FANTASTIC!
-NIkki + Driss, October 2019 - Spruce Mountain Ranch
Mia, You are awesome! You were so kind and helpful and so fun! I felt like we were friends already the day I met you. Thank you for making our experience so wonderful. Thank you for your attention to all my crazy little details. Thank you for being just an all around sweet human! I felt totally at ease and comfortable on the day and that meant the world to me!
-Sarah + Michael, September 2019 - Tapestry House
Sarah and Mia are AMAZING women! Not only do they always make you feel like the dazzling bride you are but they truly build that trust that is required when you are handing over such important reigns! These ladies are always prompt, always prepared and always there to answer any questions or concerns you may have! These ladies are TOP NOTCH planners and truly make give even the small details their full attention. You will feel loved, supported and carefree on your wedding day if you hire these ladies. Trust me, if what makes your heart happy is having Sarah Viera there holding a gin and tonic that you can sip between photos because you're missing cocktail hour - they are here to please. Trust me when I say that these ladies were worth EVERY penny. I would hire them again in a heartbeat! Thank you ladies for being so damn wonderful and for truly making my visions reality. You ladies are the best! HIRE THEM YA'LL.
-Sarah + Michael, September 2019 - Tapestry House
Erik and I recently received the photographs from our wedding, and we have had so much fun reclivin the magic of that weekend. Our wedding was absolutely the best day of our lives, and we cannot thank you enough for all of the hard work that went into making it perfect. Planning a wedding during my first year of business school was daunting - especially while living in a different city than both my financé and my mother - but working with you gave me such peace of mind. I so appreciate your attention to detail and your dedication to making our vision a reality, not just for the wedding itself, but for the entire weekend. We have gotten so many compliments from family and friends, and we owe a lot of this to you. My only regret is that we can't plan our wedding with you again! Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend so special. We will cherish those memories for the rest of our lives.
All our love,
-Hillary + Erik, August 2019 - Broadmoor
There are not enough words to describe how amazing Sarah was on our wedding day as well as the months leading up to it. We hired Sarah as a day-of-coordinator but she was so much more than that. Sarah has calm, attentive, honest, and so kind throughout the entire planning process. Being a destination wedding for my fiancé and I, it was very hard to choose vendors when all we could do is read reviews and communicate via telephone and email. Sarah knew my vision and was honest when she felt a vendor did not fit my style or expectations. From our florist to our band, everything fit exactly what I was looking for. She even attended our tasting at The Broadmoor with us to help us choose our dinner menu items. On the day of our wedding, Sarah did an amazing job making our day smooth and stress free. If something went wrong, I definitely didn’t know it! Everyone kept telling me how calm I was all day, I really do have Sarah and her team to thank for that. I’m sad that our wedding is over because I really enjoyed working with her. Hiring Sarah was definitely the best decisions we made while planning our wedding, I couldn’t imagine doing it without her!
-Melissa + Neil, June 2019 - Broadmoor
I just can't thank you enough for everything. Our wedding was magical thanks to you! You made everything so easy for me and you were such a joy to work with. Also thank you for the adorable SVE wedding gift box - so cute!
-Katherine + Daulton Roberts, SVE Bride 2019
Rick, Haley, Dustin and (especially) I, are so truly grateful for your thoughtful planning and help throughout the entire time October to July 22! You were such a job to work with and made my life easier - at least with wedding details. Thanks for consistently going above and beyond. As a additional token of our appreciation, Rick and I would like to add to your "tip" a bit more. Praying you have a great school year ad many more successful weddings.
Love, Lauren and Family
-Haley + Dustin Titus , SVE Bride 2018
Words cannot express our gratitude for all that you did to make our wedding day a dream come true! You kept us calm through the stressful times and allowed us to feel like everything was under control. From running to grab the bridal hair clip to making sure we had food and our preferred cocktail, you thought of everything. We absolutely love our wine and whiskey 1st anniversary gift you gave us! We cannot wait for our anniversary to reminisce on our perfect wedding day. You are such a angel and I don't know what we would have done without you!
-Mariel + Jack Stimple, SVE Bride 2018
Mac and I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort that you put into planning and executing our wedding weekend. Due to your careful preparation and wonderful attention to detail, our wedding was the most incredible wedding and more than we could have dreamed of. We really appreciate everything that you did to make our wedding day smooth and worry free - it definitely did not go un-noticed. Our wedding would not have been the beautiful celebration that it was without all your help. We are so happy that we were able to work with you and we wish you all the best in all of your future weddings. We know that they will be nothing short of amazing.
-Emily + Mac Katigan, SVE Bride 2018
It's true what they say-your wedding day really is the most special day. Thank you SO much for all your help in making sure ours was perfect. The first day we chatted, I knew immediately I was in amazing hands! Thank you!
-Tegan + Travis Arnold, SVE Bride 2017
The wedding was everything we could have hoped for, and more. Especially the day of, everything was seamless and very different from our previous 3 wedding experiences. I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Even with the glitch with the shuttle, you and your assistant projected a calm and confident exterior so I never felt a moments stress. I cant thank you enough. You’ve been such a gift to me and to our family. Thank you and God bless you and your family.
-Cheryl South, SVE Mother of the Bride 2017
Now that we’re back home in NJ and settled in, and the glow from the wedding is fading just the slightest bit, I am remembering how fantastic you were! You made the day flawless and effortless for us. It was so comforting to know that you were 100% on top of everything and I felt complete faith in you from the moment we met on Saturday. Thank you so much for your part in a perfect day!
-Robin Schaffer, SVE Mother of the Bride 2017
There are countless reasons Sarah Viera Event Planning and Design has won so many awards over the last 7 years. Their expertise is priceless! Jamie Mitchell was the day of wedding coordinator for our daughter's wedding two weeks ago. She was exceptional - completely professional, fully attentive, and knowledgeable. She directed the wedding day seamlessly and with complete class! We were not concerned for even one moment with Jamie in charge. We will always be thankful that we had the privilege of working with Jamie Mitchell. If we could give her 10 stars in every category, we would!
-Susan, SVE Mother of the Bride 2017
I have already told you in person, over the phone, and by email how absolutely amazing you were as our Wedding Planner. From the moment Meg met you, she knew you would handle all the many details so we could enjoy the day of the wedding. You did not disappoint but were stellar in your ability to focus and keep everything moving forward in a smooth orderly way. It is no surprise that you have been voted "Best of the Springs" Wedding Planner in Colorado area every year since 2011.
Your software Aisle Planner was absolutely critical to the success of planning a destination wedding. It was such a helpful took for Meg and me to communicate through since she was in Colorado and I was in Florida. Updating the guest list as the RSVP's came in, noting their food choices and any special needs, the seating chart, the budget and actual invoices from vendors allowed us to make adjustments - all through this well designed software. It also allowed you to see where we were in the planning and prompt us for decisions not yet made.
Your lovely smile was such a calming presence at the wedding ceremony at the Air Force Academy Chapel. You made sure everyone had their personal flowers, the guestbook was in place and that the photographers got shots of the wedding program and Meg's letter from Bruce to read before she walked down the aisle. Then prior to arriving at the Flying Horse Club for the reception, you coordinated with the staff to see that all items were in the proper places per diagrams and that the timeline was followed. The offer made available for us to use decorative accessories from your inventory allowed us to have special gold chargers under the dinner plates, clear vases with floating candles and gold glitter tea lights on each table that added ambiance and elegance to the dinner reception. After the reception, you placed table centerpiece flowers in our room, and also put the bridal bouquet in the Bride and Groom's Villa along with your thoughtful bottles of wine for them on their honeymoon and first anniversary.
In the world today, people who are professional yet humble, and offer service above and beyond are rare. You, Sarah, are one of those people, and it has been a true joy to interact with you these past nine months make our daughter's wedding such a memorable occasion.
-Elaine, SVE Mother of the Bride 2017
I hired Sarah for my "day of coordinator" and I couldn't have been happier working with her and her assistant. I truly found a second "me" to handle all of the day of details while executing my vision flawlessly. The support, advice, and software she provided for the entire year made the planning process SO much easier as well! She was very personal and easy to work with, but also direct when necessary. She was also quick to respond to any of my emails or phone calls, which I really appreciated. My only regret was that I didn't hire her to plan the entire wedding!! Then I could have gotten to work with her more intimately than just the last month :) I would highly recommend Sarah and her team for any of your wedding planning needs!!
-Lindsay + Ben, SVE Bride 2017
When we hired Sarah, we really had no clue where to start. All we knew is that we wanted to get married in the upcoming fall season and that would be in around 9 months. She was absolutely amazing in getting us organized and helping us prioritize what needed to get done by when, taking into account our budget and keeping everything fun and flexible. Sarah has worked with many professionals within the wedding industry and was able to recommend a few that we worked with and were great. Sarah and her team brought our day together just as we had envisioned and made everything seamless. We highly recommend SVE Planning & Design!
-Sephanie + Jun, SVE Bride 2016
Thank you so much for your beautiful work on our wedding. You are one of the most fabulous, polished and genuine professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. You made the day extra special and I will always cherish that day. With love and gratitude.
-Allison + Mike, SVE Bride 2016
Just our words of thanks to you for all you did to make 10-22-16 the most special day in our families lives. Everything was absolutely perfect and, aside from God's weather, you pulled it all together and make it a day all in attendance will never forget. Thank you, you will always be a unofficial member of Paul and Morgan's wedding party.
-Dave + Heidi Thomas, SVE Mother and Father of Bride, 2016
Thank you so much for all your help and guidance. You made our special day easier for us. Thank you for designing our elopement, picnic and waking up so early.
-Candace + Blaine Szablewski, SVE Bride 2016
Thank you so much for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! It was everything I could ever hope for and more. We couldn't have done it without you! You provide us with the best recommendations in vendors, gave us so much support throughout the process and made the wedding day flow so beautifully. There aren't enough words to say thank you and tell you how much we appreciate everything.
-Michelle + Steven Moreland, SVE Bride 2016
I contacted Sarah Viera Event Planning & Design with less then a months notice for a 40th surprise birthday party for my other half. Due to the hours that I work, I had limited time and asked if they were able to assist me in organizing my event (I have no party planning knowledge). Knowing that most event planning companies work with the wedding industry I was excited when Kaitlyn Klis contacted me back and stated she could help me. With one phone conversation she was able to understand what I was wanting. She proceeded to book the venue, order the cake, assist me with the menu, and decide on the decorations. All the while she kept me very informed on the costs (I got discounts, yay!) and details I needed to know via email (so helpful since this was a surprise). She arrived early to set up, this allowed me to get my husband there with no juggling of time. Her presence at the event was unexpected but wonderful (Kaitlyn is so stinking cute). It was so very appreciated that she assisted with the timing (when to cake cut and when to eat) and the cake cutting itself. This gave me the opportunity to enjoy this event as well. I highly recommend if you are ever in need of someone to take some stress off of you for an event to contact Sarah Viera Event Planning. My big guy and myself have had a permanent smile since. Thank you guys so much for taking on this event for me. I will recommend you to anyone who asks.
-Nadine + Mark Steele, SVE Client 2015
I got married on Sunday at Spruce Mountain Ranch and Sarah was my planner. I grew up in Colorado Springs but currently live in Pennsylvania so I was planning the wedding from afar. Sarah was recommended by Spruce Mountain and from our first phone conversation back in December, I knew that she was the only person for the job. She made me feel comfortable that everything would be organized and taken care of! As planning went on, I was so reassured when all of our other vendors could say nothing but the best things about Sarah. I had no nerves on the big day because everything was organized to a T. Sarah and her team were friendly and professional and helped every step of the way - even helping when a bridesmaid had a faulty zipper. Sarah was a joy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone planning a wedding in Colorado!!
-Katy + Justin McShane, SVE Bride 2015
As far as wedding planners go, Sarah is the cream of the crop. Seriously, look no further. Sarah helped put together a seamless wedding for my husband and I and if there were any glitches, we sure didn't know about it. Sarah helped to keep me on track an did all of my confirmations for me so I didn't have to worry about a thing! I also forgot to call our limo company back to confirm our reservation (I work graveyard shift) and when I called a few days later they said my wedding planner took care of it. She is personable and all of my vendors knew her well and loved working with her also. Made the day so easy and so fun! Sarah you are a lifesaver!
-Caitlin + Doug Hurst, SVE Bride 2015
We are so happy that we hired Sarah Viera as our wedding coordinator for our wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch! Not only is Sarah and her team well organized and responsive, but they are fun to work with and reliable! As a bride planning our wedding from out-of-state, I knew that I could rely on Sarah's knowledge and expertise on creating a seamless wedding! We truly were able to enjoy our day thanks to Sarah and her team! I highly recommend Sarah and her team for all brides! :)
-Stephanie + Don Sutherland, SVE Bride 2015
Thank you for all of your hard work and patience with us resulting in a beautiful and enchanted wedding reception. We certainly could not have had the wedding all fall into place without your help! From the initial conversation through the vendor visits, up to the walk through, and then the "big" day you guided the entire process with professionalism, infinite attention to detail and great kindness/patience! We are blessed to have had your expertise.
-Pam Steele, SVE Mother of the Bride 2014
Just writing to say thanks again for everything you did to make our wedding the best day of our lives. Thanks for answering my multiple questions throughout the year and helping with all the little details. We couldn't have asked for a better day of wedding planner! You went above and beyond our expectations. For example, taking my grandparents up and down the hillside at Spruce Mountain was not in your job description, but you found time to do that with all your other duties. We felt at complete ease the entire day knowing you were in charge of keeping everything on track. Thanks for the peace of mind:) I will send future brides your way any day. Appreciate everything. Please feel free to use this as a review on your website.
-Jeneen + Justin Mackey, SVE Bride 2014
We can't thank you enough for such a remarkable experience during our entire wedding (pre, during and post). We couldn’t have picked a better Wedding Coordinator!!! You executed our dream wedding with perfection and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you for your detail-oriented, outgoing and wonderful candor throughout the entire experience. We couldn’t have done it without you and will always have TERRIFIC MEMORIES of working with you.
For anyone out there, if you need a wedding coordinator in Colorado. Pick Sarah. She is without a doubt the best of the best. Her coordination on the wedding day was utterly remarkable and she created an amazing connection with every vendor to ensure a smooth and stress-free day for us (the bride and groom).
-Karla + Matt Bill, SVE Bride 2014
Where do I even begin? We could not be happier we chose Sarah Viera as our wedding planner. She never ceases to amaze me with her professionalism, passion, and 100% commitment to making your special day all you dreamed it would be and more. Our wedding reception venue was affected by the Black Forest fire, which happened 4 days before our wedding. The minute I caught news that our reception venue, The Pinery at Black Forest, was being threatened, I made a call to Sarah. Without hesitation, she began working on our plan B- to have the reception in my parents backyard (with 220 guests). She came over the next morning to help me in re-planning all of our 22 months of hard work. Not even 4 hours later, we were evacuating my parents out of their house. I contacted Sarah and let her know that plan was out the window. Once again, without hesitation, Sarah was onto plan C (this also all happened when Sarah was 71/2 months into her pregnancy!). Not even an hour later she was headed up to Spruce Mountain Ranch to talk to them about holding our reception there. Sarah, Spruce Mountain Ranch, and the Pinery joined forces to not only make our reception happen, but make it amazing. There is no doubt in our minds that if it wasn't for Sarah, we would not have had a wedding reception. With all the madness going on with relatives arriving for the wedding as we were evacuating, wedding planning was the furthest thing from my mind. Our wedding day was everything that we could have dreamed of and more. In no shape, way, or form did it look like we re-planned the wedding in 3 days. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding day. Sarah was on top of everything, along with her assistant. As a type A person, it is typically hard for me to give up the reigns in fear of my expectations not being met. Sarah made it so easy to trust her and I knew that everything was in good hands. I would recommend using Sarah Viera to anyone!!! She is everything an event planner should be and so much more!
-Tia + Paul Guillan, SVE Bride 2013
The smartest decision we made in connection with our daughter's wedding was to hire Sarah Viera. We can recommend her without reservation. Sarah's endless energy and dedication to ensuring that everything was perfect were evident from the very beginning. The event consultations and day-of coordination were invaluable but it was her ability to transform a resource-constrained venue from simple to magical with limited time that truly demonstrated her experience and her commitment to satisfying her clients. Thank you, Sarah, for helping make this celebrations so special for the couple and their friends and family members. We will always have fond memories as well as a heartfelt appreciation for your efforts.
-Susan Darby, SVE Mother of the Bride 2012
I found you online on a Thursday evening, and called you early the next morning! I was so desperate and really needed help. I could tell immediately even by looking at your photo that you 'would be the girl for me'!! I believe in my discernment was correct! As I've said before, I could not have done this without your help. I could not have lived through the month of May, without your help. Thank you for being there for me, in all of my uncertainties and indecisiveness! You were my stability and now my new friend!
-Beth + Carl Crews, SVE Bride 2012
I highly recommend Sarah Viera as a wedding planner! Sarah was incredibly organized and helpful. On our wedding day, I didn’t have to worry about vendors, deliveries or staying on schedule. It was great! I was able to relax with my bridesmaids knowing that she was taking care of things for me. And leading up to my wedding, Sarah was key in the planning process. I wasn’t very familiar with the Colorado Springs area and Sarah was able to help point me in the right direction for vendors. She was also extremely important in keeping our wedding under budget. Sarah deals with a variety of vendors and helped me steer towards vendors more within my price point. Sarah is also very creative. I wanted certain “artsy” flair at my wedding and she was constantly calling/emailing me with fun, new ideas. Sarah is wonderful.
-Anna + Tim Luebbert, SVE Bride 2011
I highly recommend the services of Sarah Viera Event Planning & Design. Sarah ensured that my wedding and reception were beautiful and the events flowed smoothly. Planning the wedding from out-of-town (Washington, DC), I was unfamiliar with the vendors in Colorado Springs, Colorado and did not have an opportunity to meet with them until the week of the wedding. Sarah handled details of the wedding from the flowers, to the cake, the music, and the reception site. She also took the time to research and review table linens, chairs, and silverware, all the details that made my reception extra special. After the whole wedding planning experience, I consider Sarah much more than an excellent coordinator, she has become a close and valued friend. Please seriously consider Sarah Viera Event Planning & Design as you prepare for your important day.
-Yolanda + Jay Kerr, SVE Bride 2010
There are no words to express my gratitude for all you have done for me, Brian and my family. You have been there for me as a loyal friend, confidant and supporter. I could not have asked for anything more! The times we shared and the things we've been through have bonded us for life. You have become more like family to me and have shown me what a great and wonderful soul you have. I couldn't have picked a better person to be with on my special day.
-Takisha + Brian Lisko, SVE Bride 2010
