THE STUDIO

You have a heart of gold and the patience of a saint. I am so forever grateful to you and for you. Emily, you truly have not only been the best wedding planner, but a best friend. Thank you for everything!

-Sarah, Bride, July 2017

From the moment I met you, I knew your calm demeanor and expertise in creating beautifully unique wedding details was going to be the perfect fit of us. I enjoyed every bit of the process, and was blown away by your attentiveness to us, your attention to the fine print, and your extreme organization. You put my parents at ease during this “stressful” time, though it wasn’t stressful at all with you as our planner!

-Hallie, Bride, June 2017

Thank you for all of your hard work and support. You did such an amazing job of making the planning process easy for us. The rehearsal dinner turned out better than I ever would have imagined, and my parents were blown away. Thank you for creating this unforgettable weekend for us!

- Sam, Groom, June 2017

We’ve worked with other wedding and event planners in the past, including at a wedding at our ho‍‍‍me, and you are far and away the BEST!

- Robert, Father of the Bride, June 2017

Emily and her team are caring, fun, and loving, which made my wedding planning process not only fun and enjoyable, but also easy. Emily made planning a Colorado wedding from the East Coast seem like nothing. She has amazing relationships with superb vendors, all of whom I recommend just as highly. Our wedding day was the winter wonderland I'd dreamed of, and I don't know what I would have done without the love and support from the whole Bella team on not only my wedding day, but throughout the entire process!

-Holly , Bride, January 2017

Emily is the best wedding planner out there. She is creative, organized, talented, resourceful, elegant, conscientious, experienced, calm, kind, and so much fun! We live in D.C. and when our daughter and her fiancé decided to marry in Aspen, I didn't know where to begin. The event manager at the Little Nell sent us to Emily, and it was the most wonderful suggestion I’ve ever been given! I also want to thank Samantha and Richard’s Notebook. Her artistry, skill and talent helped us create an absolutely stunning stationery suite. Working with Emily and her team is a complete joy: No stress, no complications and, most importantly, the wedding surpassed our highest expectations. It was simply PERFECT.

-Mary, Mother of the Bride, October 2017

We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hea‍‍‍rts for making our wedding such a memorable occasion!

-Sarel, Bride, March 2017

We can't thank you enough for all you did the weekend of our wedding. You all anticipated our every need. Thank you for all of your help organizing our celebration -- and for keeping us organized, too!

-Amy, Rajeev, Kathy & Marshall
Bride, Groom, and Parents of the Bride, July 2016

Emily made me feel as though our wedding was her top priority. Our day went off without a hitch thanks to the Bella team's attention to detail, and I can't imagine a better experience than the one we had with them.

-Erin, Bride, October 2015

David and Alexa's rehearsal dinner was just what we wanted it to be: Beautiful, fun, and filled with warmth. Your organizational skills and fabulous taste were the keys to such a special evening. You are calm, positive, unflappable, and a joy to work with, and that can make the sun shine on a cloudy day.

-Jan, Mother of the Groom, August 2016

Emily and her team are amazing at pulling off a beautiful, fun and memorable wedding! Our family loves Emily dearly, and will always consider her not only a terrific wedding planner but also a personal friend! Thank you to Emily, Samantha, and their team for absolutely everything.‍‍‍

Bride, Groom and Parents of the Bride, June 2016

With full hearts, we thank you again for all you did to make Engage!14 Bachelor Gulch a huge success! We are beyond grateful for your incredible talent and creativity in producing the Welcome Party. It was sheer perfection from start to finish, every detail more fabulous than the next!

-Rebecca Grinnals & Katherine Arce
Founders, Engage! Summits

We want to thank you again for helping us make our dream wedding come to life. You were so lovely through the entire process, and we couldn't have ask‍‍‍ed for a better weekend with our friends and family.

-Emily and Joe, Bride & Groom, February 2014

You made our entire wedding weekend so perfect and special. Todd and I love you dearly!

-Carey, Bride, March 2014

There are no adequate to convey our thanks and gratitude to you. You were the reason that we were able to plan and execute our dream wedding... in just THREE months! You were our knight in shining armor, ‍‍‍our confidante and, more importantly, our friend.

-Antaash and Yassar, Bride & Groom, October 2014

Thank you for making our wedding wonderful. Despite the rain, or maybe because of it, the scenes of the mountains in the backdrop look beautiful. The tent turned out just perfect, in no small part due to your leadership.

-Eric and Libby, Bride & Groom, August 2013

I'm not sure where to begin in thanking you for being by my side, throughout the wedding planning and leading up to the big day. I've loved getting to know you, and hope our friendship continues to grow.

-Ellen, Bride, June 2014

You are a beautiful and amazingly talented team, and I can honestly say that our wedding would not have been the stress-free, joyful, fairytale day that it was without you all.

-Kelly, Bride, April 2014

Thank you so much for everything. I can't express how pleased Brad and I have been with your talent. You made planning our wedding easy and fun, and I am incredibly grateful for you and your team.

-Meagan, Bride, June 2014

It was an absolute pleasure working with you. There isn't a single thing I would change about the entire process, and that is because with you, it was perfect! You truly made our dreams come true!

-April, Bride, June 2014

I could not have had a more perfect planner and designer for our wedding day. You would be crazy not to work with Emily and the Bella team! It is ‍‍‍an absolute pleasure to work with such special people.

-Regan, Bride, August 2013

You started out as a wedding planner and a leader of organized chaos, and quickly became a girlfriend, therapist, sister, cohort, confidante, supporter, mediator, sidekick, and our biggest ally. Thank you so much for everything!

-Suzanne, Bride, September 2013

I knew I would need help planning our destination wedding, and a friend recommended Bella. The month-of coordination was a great ch‍‍‍oi‍‍‍ce for our budget. Our coordinator, Samantha, was fantastic. She checked in periodically, provided recommendations, set up our planning tools, and answered many questions along the way. ‍‍The month prior, she took over the majority of the details. It was lovely to know she was handling the logistics! The whole day was enjoyable and stress free for me – if anything went wrong, it was handled and I never knew about it. The entire team was wonderful and I would highly recommend Bella – especially if you do not live in Colorado.

-Samantha, Bride, August 2017

Emily and her entire team are amazing! I cannot say enough great things about them. From our very first phone conversation to our cake cutting at the reception, they were by our side. Emily can execute anything you can dream up. She has an amazing reputation with all of the vendors we worked with, and she and her team are so professional. Emily, Samantha, and Jaimie took care of us, our families, our wedding party, and all of our guests. Anything we needed, they had, and they took care of every detail to make sure we had nothing to worry about. I am so thankful we had them throughout the planning and design process.

-Kylie, Bride, July 2017

We felt a connection with Emily immediately. She is personable, organized, funny, friendly, and was genuinely interested in who we were as a couple and the type of day we wanted. She has an a-list Rolodex of vendors for every possible thing you could need, and every vendor LOVES working with her. The greatest gift Emily gave us was peace of mind. I never had to worry about whether something would be handled because I knew I had Emily and her amazing team on my side. This was an even greater gift for my parents, whose sole responsibility was to be present on my wedding day. If you are looking for the best wedding planner, look no further than Bella Design and Planning!

-Ashley, Bride, February 2017

There is no way my wedding would have been as fabulous as it was without the Bella team. Emily was there at all times, anticipating every need and making it easy to relax and enjoy the weekend. Samantha is simply the best. She took my jumbled ideas and created the most spectacular stationery suite for us. Jaimie was a doll an‍‍‍d helped me so much throughout the day. I had the best wedding because of these ladies, and there is no one who could have done better. I work in corporate events, so I know what it takes, and the Bella team will plan and execute your miracle wedding. I wish I could do it all over again, just so I could plan with them.

-Whitney, Bride, September 2016

Thanks to the Bella Design & Planning team, everything for our wedding was amazing. Nothing is perfect, but with them it was pretty darn close! Everything that we wanted, imagined, and asked for, they made come true. I wish I could get married all over again (or at least every other year) with them! They are truly professionals in every aspect of what they do. They go above and beyond to make you happy!

-Gretchen, Bride, August 2016

Emily and her team are truly one of a kind. I knew the moment I met her that Emily was the planner for us. She brought all of our ideas to life, and we were beyond thrilled with the outcome. Throughout the process, Emily kept us on track and made planning a destination wedding totally stress-free. We put our trust in her to pick our vendors, and she did not disappoint. Our guests raved about every single detail! We are so grateful to have had Emily's encouragement, support and expertise to plan and execute our wedding day in Keystone. She and her team are genuine, kind and just amazing people. Emily, Samantha and Jaimie were truly a special part of our wedding day.

-Jamie, Bride, July 2016

With so many moving parts on our wedding day, I am not sure what we would have done without Bella Design and Planning! Emily was extremely organized in the lead-up to the wedding, and she and her team were critical to ensuring that our wedding day flowed smoothly. From getting ready to packing up after the reception, Emily took care of absolutely all of the logistics. My husband and I and our families were able to enjoy the event to the fullest, thanks to all of Emily's hard work. We are very happy that we selected Bella, and would recommend Emily's services to anyone getting married in the Rocky Mountains!

-Carolyn, Bride, July 2016

I cannot compare Bella Design & Planning to other wedding planners, as this was my first (and only) wedding, but I can speak to the unbelievable quality of service that Emily provided me and my wife. From the start, they covered every detail and helped guide us through the process. They were easily reached by text and email, and provided prompt responses and recommendations whenever asked. On the big day, it was amazing to see everything come together. Bella did a flawless job and worked non-stop the entire weekend to make sure everything was perfect. I will recommend Emily to any and every person, be it a friend or stranger, who is getting ready to plan their wedding.

-Ed, Groom, October 2015

It can be a bit daunting to plan a wedding from afar, but with Bella Design & Planning's help it, was simple. Emily helped me define my vision, putting together mood boards that proved that she really got what I was imagining. I had 100% confidence in Emily and her team. The weekend went smoothly without any issues. My wedding was PERFECT! My husband Patrick and I will always cherish our wedding as a magical day and night. It wouldn't have been such a fairytale evening without Emily!

-Kristina, Bride, September 2015

Emily and the entire Bella team were amazing! Their passion, creativity, contacts and organization made the planning process a pleasure. I am so pleased with their services and would highly recommend!
