Tell us about your business!
Hey I’m Grace with Graceful Wedding & Event Planning and I’m located in Buena Vista, Colorado. I’m the owner and lead planner and love how I get to work with couple to make their wedding day stress free and beautiful! I’d say my favorite thing is all the details and hard work come together on the big day! It’s a joy to bless couples with a stress free wedding by taking care of all the behind the scenes details!
How long have you lived in the area and what brough you here?
I moved to Buena Vista in 2005 to work at a Young Life camp as an intern. I feel in love with the mountains and with a local! We are now married and have one precious little girl!
Are you a water or mountain person?
I love both! It’s hard to say because I grew up near water and miss it but know if I moved from the mountains I’d miss them too!
Where are you from initially?
Texas! Whoop Gig’em Ags!
If you could be a part of any celebrities wedding, whose would it be?
Drew Barrymore. She seems like a down to earth kind of gal and I like that!
What do you love most about being a part of weddings?
Being able to make sure all the details play out like the bride has dreamed about for years as well as seeing the grooms face when the bride walks down the aisle. Gets me every time!
Tell us a little bit about what you’re doing when you’re not working?
Taking care of my baby girl and trying to get outside as much as we can!
What do you love most about where we live?
That you can play outside ALL year! We love skiing, snowboard, hiking, mountain biking, and playing golf! It’s wonderful that we have a place we can easily do all of those things throughout the year. Excited to teach our daughter how to do all these fun actives!
If you could have any other job in the world what would it be?
The Tidy Up lady! I love organizing, making a system and turning chaos into order. Haha guess that’s what I do as a wedding planner as well! 🙂
What was the last song you listened to (on purpose)?
Baby Got Back. Hahaha!
