Find out more about Marcy and Creative Weddings and Celebrations:
How did you decide to become a wedding planner?
I have always loved weddings and have found that my personality really lends itself well to wedding planning specifically. I am very detail-oriented, but calm and I have found that this is the perfect combination for wedding planning.
What makes Aspen the perfect wedding destination?
EVERYTHING! Our vendors are amazingly talented and work hard to satisfy our incredible clientele, but I think the natural beauty of the area makes it the most amazing destination in the world.
What are some of your favorite wedding color schemes, themes, and trends?
I personally love incorporating nature into events so my style tends to lean towards a more organic and natural feel. That being said, every wedding is completely different, so we get to experiment with every style imaginable, from fun bright colors to classic ivory and very edgy to completely classic. We are very lucky to be able to fulfill everyone's vision.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
The ceremony for certain. When the vows are shared that's the be-all-end-all. That's why we are there.
What else would you like people to know about your career?
I love that people think of my career as being fun, creative and exciting, but it is also difficult work.
What makes your company stand out above others?
My client's would say that I consistently over-deliver and they are always appreciative of the added effort that goes into every event. I put 100% of my attention into my events and I believe that it shows in the end result.
