“You are a Goddess! We could not have imagined a better wedding weekend. You clearly have an ‘in’ with the Gods. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We simply could not have pulled it off without your help. And you smiled through all the craziness. Thanks again and much love to you.” -Ruth, Bride
“Because our wedding would have been schlepp without you!” – Sam, Groom
“Thank you so much for all your help in making it a perfect day! I don’t think we could have asked for anything more. All the guests were extremely complimentary. Many told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. (…) I can’t think of one thing I would have wanted to be different or better. The whole event seemed to flow so naturally. I personally had a fantastic time. It was so much fun not worrying about a thing knowing you had everything under control. ” – Cathie, Mother of the Bride
“You made our dreams come true.” – Alex, Bride
“Cielle was fun to work with and she definitely knows her wedding stuff. She was organized yet relaxed at the same time. She made it so that my husband and I were not stressed at all on the day and we could enjoy being with our friends and family. (…) Also, she handled herself very well when meeting with me and other vendors. She always had grace even if I was upset about something, and she was able to lighten my mood :).”
“I feel very fortunate that Cielle was a part of my wedding. Not only was she supportive, sweet, and full of amazing ideas, but she also had a great way of giving feedback. It was so easy to brainstorm ideas with her and anytime I felt unsure of something or needed a second opinion, she was there for me. Cielle has such an ease about her that when she gave me her thoughts, she did it in a way that I felt comfortable saying no if it wasn’t a good fit.
Cielle also attended my hair trial appointment, which was incredibly helpful. She worked with me and my hairstylist to make sure that my hair looked great and that I was happy so I would look my best on my wedding day. One of the things I valued the most about Cielle was that during my hair and makeup trials, she was honest with me and told me if she thought something wasn’t working. After all, the whole point of doing a trial appointment is to make sure everything is how you’ll want it on your day so that you’ll look the way you want to. And Cielle helped me achieve this.
On the day of the wedding, Cielle was absolutely wonderful. There were some unexpected decisions that needed to be made, which Cielle took charge of and the result was wonderful. It was a relief knowing that I could count on her to take care of any last minute details. She has incredible taste. She’s so smart, personable, and fun to be around. All I can say is that I think she’s an amazing event planner and I’m so happy she was a part of my wedding! Thank you, Cielle!” – Jen, Bride
“Please accept this gift as a token of my appreciation and extreme gratitude for all of your hard work! I cannot thank you enough for stepping in as you did and helping to make things right. With your knowledge, patience, and compassion you made a memorable time even better.” – Karen, Mother of the Bride
“Thank you for all the time and energy that you have invested into tonight’s gala for Karis Community. Thanks too for your spirit and energy that is not only refreshing but uplifting!” – Karis Community
“We’ve seen a lot of planners in our day and it’s difficult to find one who combines great people skills with the fastidious attention to detail required to be an excellent coordinator; Cielle is definitely one of those rare people who bring the two together adroitly.” – Danny, From the Hip Photo
“Cielle was so helpful with answering all my questions and putting up with all my indecisiveness. She met with me on several occasions to help me make decisions and talk over all our different options. She also did a great job of helping us stay in our budget. All of her connections were extremely helpful and stress free because you knew you were going to get an excellent vendor that you could trust to do an amazing job! The day of the wedding went perfectly! She very friendly with everyone and able to keep everyone in line and on schedule. Cielle is amazing and we couldn’t have pulled it all off without her!” – Katy, Bride
“My husband and I worked with Cielle from the beginning of our engagement. We had interviewed a couple other wedding planners before meeting Cielle and knew right after meeting with her that she was going to make our wedding dreams come true. Cielle is GREAT at communication. She always got back to us right away and made us feel like our wedding was priority, which is such a nice feeling when we knew she was planning other weddings besides ours. My husband and I had difficult schedules at the time and Cielle was great at working with us and rearranging her schedule to meet with us. She gave us great vendor suggestions (we used all of them) and had great suggestions for working within our budget. The day of our wedding was seamless even with a little rain delay. We could not be happier with our choice to work with Cielle and Storyteller Events. Cielle and her team were professional, fun, and knew what they were doing. We highly recommend Cielle and Storytellers Events. If you are looking for someone who is going to get back to you right away, make you feel like your day is important, isn’t just a wedding planner because it’s a job (you can tell Cielle loves her job and the people she works with!)- then you need to choose Storyteller Events.” – Alexandra and Phil, Bride and Groom
“We had been planning our dream wedding for 2 years. It was scheduled to take place Sunday, September 15, 2013 at the Wild Basin Lodge in Allenspark, Colorado. The Wild Basin Lodge was not damaged in the flood, so we held out until the last minute because roadways were beginning to re-open. However, Denice at the Wild Basin called us at 1:00pm the day before the wedding and informed us that the roads were not going to be open to the public in time for our wedding. We were devastated.
We then went into panic-mode and began searching for new venues for the ceremony and reception. We drove all over the state on Saturday to check out potential new venues. All of our guests had already arrived, most of them from out of state, so we had to move forward and try to salvage the day. Saturday was the craziest day of my life. It was sheer madness. (…)
My sister-in-law, Kate, had stumbled upon Save My Colorado Wedding on Facebook the day before, and was keeping up with posts just in case. Ryan called, and was put in touch with a wedding planner, Cielle. Cielle was amazing! We had called several venues and left messages, but had not been called back and Cielle was able to get in touch with the event planners directly. She worked so hard for us, and is really the reason our day was saved. She got in touch with the event planner at the Denver Art Museum who had the Palettes restaurant available for our reception. We were amazed that this was even an option with such short notice. Hillary at Palettes and Cielle worked to make our reception happen! Cielle even contacted a local florist who had flowers to donate from another bride who lived out of state and could not make it to her wedding. We called her and made arrangements to pick up the flowers the following morning.
(…) I am so amazed that it all came together so beautifully. Cielle is our hero and she was incredible. If I had it to do over again (carefully plan an entire wedding in a reasonable amount of time that is) we would definitely hire her as our wedding planner. She was so calm, incredibly helpful, and is really the reason that our wedding was possible. We are so thankful that she volunteered her time to help us plan a beautiful, and memorable wedding. Our guests had a wonderful time, and many of them commented that they never would have known everything had been planned in only 12 hours. This is all thanks to Cielle and we love her for it! – Mattie and Ryan, Bride and Groom
“No card or words could ever express our thanks to you. No one could have created our wedding the way that you did. Sam and I were, and still are, blown away by your work, your care, your compassion, your enthusiasm, your love. Our wedding was more perfect than we ever could have imagined. Every detail was amazing and whole wedding ran like clockwork.” – Susi, Bride
