Kara is an absolute gem! She is not only a fantastic planner, but a wonderful person. I honestly don't know where to begin because I have so many things I want to write.
First, our wedding turned out more magical than we could ever have imagined. Kara did a great job of listening to us and understanding our vision and what was important to us. She had great ideas for how to make the weekend even better. The end result was unbelievable and we were thrilled all weekend! Second, Kara made the whole planning process a breeze. There are so many vendors out there - it's hard to know where to start. Based on what she knew about us and where we were getting married, Kara suggested a limited number of vendors for us to decide between. It made the planning process simple and it all turned out amazing. She was right about each and every person we worked with! They were amazing. Kara was so responsive over the course of our entire year of anticipation/planning - which always put me at ease. Kara was also super organized and made sure that all of the pieces fit together. I never had a doubt that it would all come together knowing that she was at the helm.
Finally, Kara is an amazing presence. She is supportive and kind and just a joy to be around. We just loved spending time with her! I cannot recommend her enough.

We worked with Kara for the first time this month and she was an absolute pleasure! She had organized and communicated beautifully to all involved before the day of the wedding so there were no hiccups with venue or other vendors and most importantly the couple. She interacted with all of the staff and was most kind to them. Kara had a big smile on her face throughout the entire weekend which is a testament that she loves what she does and it shows. We are grateful to have worked with this brilliant, fun and creative women and can't wait for the next one! Thank you from Amora Group! More...

As another vendor I worked with Kara for a wedding in March. She was organized, knowledgeable, friendly, timely, and overall amazing! Would recommend her to anyone needing a great planner! More...

I work at Footers Catering, and on behalf of the entire Footers Family, we highly recommend Love This Day Events!! Kara is one of the most detailed planners we know! She is always two steps ahead thinking through the logistics and details. She is great at keeping her couples on track for planning without making it feel overwhelming. More...

Kara is literally the best possible thing that has ever happened to wedding planning. She is responsive, professional, she has great ideas, she is SO easy to work with, and she is just a truly wonderful person to be around. Kara nailed everything about planning my wedding and she is so great that I even hung out with her for a few minutes during my own wedding reception! We worked together for about a year and a half planning my wedding and I can honestly say that it would have been nowhere near the wedding of my dreams without her. She knows her stuff and I didn't have to worry about anything the day of my wedding. She is worth every penny and more. More...

In all honesty, I’ve been procrastinating this review because I don’t want it to end (but realistically, it won’t because we’re friends for life now). I love Kara so incredibly much. As a wedding photographer and a bride, she knew exactly what I was thinking at all times. A year of phone calls, emails, plane rides, tears, and triumphs, I can confidently say… look no further. You will be lucky to have this incredible STONG woman on your side. She was my rock throughout my destination wedding and there is no way I could have done it without her. She put herself first throughout every single situation and went above and beyond what I expected her to do. By the time the wedding day came around, she was just another best friend in the room with me. I’m tearing up right now thinking about how perfect our wedding day was and it’s all because of her. Kara knows everyone and holds fantastic relationships with each person she meets. She truly has a niche with the wedding world that not many people can handle.

Kara, you are such an inspiration to me. Thank you for taking care of Holt and I, we are forever grateful for your selfless being. You’re right where you need to be.

Kara is hand-down one of the best wedding planners around! She has an amazing eye for design, especially if you're looking for lux mountain/ranch (which I was); she has amazing relationships with vendors and knows the market really well so you don't have to spend a zillion hours researching and sending quotes; and she's just flat out NICE. Like craaaaaaaazy nice. If you're stressed out, having a bad day or something snags (because something will snag), she'll be there to fix things ASAP......all without losing a smile. Plus she goes above and beyond on everything - following up on questions, picking up things that need to be picked up, you name it and she's on it. At the end of the day, in hiring Kara, you're hiring a best friend and savior for what is the most exciting (albeit stressful) time in your life! I cannot recommend her enough! More...

I cannot express how thankful I am that my daughter hired Kara to handle the wedding details for her wedding this past weekend. She made sure it was all perfect and ran smoothly, which was no small feat with a hurried change of ceremony sites due to weather. She went to bat for us on things that there is no way I could have handled, and made it easy to just enjoy the very special day and all its moments with family & friends and especially with my daughter. thank You Kara from from bottom of my heart!

OMG what can I say about Kara other than she is literally the best possible thing that ever happened to wedding planning? Kara is responsive, professional, she has great ideas, she is SO easy to work with, and she is a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

Kara and Love This Day Events is easily the best choice you can possibly make for your wedding! She is the kindest person and is totally on top of everything that she does. Because she is so kind and experienced, she can refer you to a network of other totally talented individuals that help create the perfect wedding team! She is organized from the moment you talk to her. She helped guide me through decisions throughout the wedding planning process that helped make it fun and manageable. She has a knack for beautiful detail and has a calming fun spirit that you will fall in love with. Our wedding venue was way less than helpful and she took care of it all and gave us the wedding of our dreams! She coordinated moving our wedding inside due to change of weather conditions and it was absolutely stunning! We were able to enjoy our ENTIRE wedding weekend because we knew she had all the small things taken care of ahead of time. I cannot say enough how much I am grateful for her experience and refreshing genuine kindness! You should choose her because you will never look back and you will have a flawless stress-free wedding!

What can I say about Kara that hasn't been already said?! Well I will double down on all of it! We found Kara and she basically became the third musketeer to my mother and I through the whole planning project. We are from California and she made every call, email, text, facetime and IN PERSON appointment possible for our Winter Park winter wedding. She knew all of the best vendors but also was very open to us looking for new options out there. She most importantly suggested our band that actually might have been the best band I have ever seen (no bias promise) and made the party beyond fun. She was there all the way leading up emailing back in the middle of the night, texting me in between breaks during her own meetings and just being such a positive light in a time that kind sometimes be stressful.

She was a great liaison between ourselves and the venue since we weren't there in person and always had 2 to 3 solutions to a problem if it arose. She kept track of hundreds of email chains between a bunch of vendors and just kept everyone moving forward. She made the tough calls to vendors if you were in a pickle and took a lot of pressure off.

Kara I consider more than a planner but a friend and I don't think anyone could have listened, executed and go BEYOND like she did. My wedding was as perfect as it could have been all planned and ran smoothly my Kara. I can't say thank you enough and recommend her enough to anyone getting married - she is the real deal! Worth every penny :)

This. Girl. Is. Amazing. That's the short story.

We originally (unfortunately) planned on going with a different coordinator, but things just weren't sitting right with that person at all, so we went on the hunt for a new coordinator. Mind you, our wedding was a mere 3 weeks away, so we were in straight panic mode. We luckily came across Kara, and by our very first conversation, I knew we were finally in the right hands. We were so comfortable & at ease with her. She made us feel like she was truly there for us & that our happiness was her focus. She jumped in & worked with our last-minute needs--keeping us on track & tying up our loose ends. Her decorating skills are AMAZING. She made our lanterns, draping, candles, and other decor come to life in an elegant, intimate, & romantic way. She made sure our vendors knew where to go, what to do, & when to do it, and she directed them in such a graceful, poised & humorous way. Another reviewer used the word "bossy", which couldn't be further from the truth!!! Everyone LOVED her! She also kept me from breaking down in nervous tears right before the ceremony by telling me jokes. Haha! She knew exactly what we needed when we needed it. We also wound up having an unplanned vendor stay for dinner, and since we didn't have a vendor meal for this person she just made something happen, which we were grateful for. She even stayed after the event to clean up everything and pack our decor up in boxes, and all she wanted us to do was to go enjoy our night. Holy cow, what a truly amazing person she is! She is selfless, honest, reliable, incredibly smart, organized, funny, kind, energetic, & very put-together...she's everything you need in a wedding coordinator. Look no further. I seriously cannot say enough good things about this woman! Kara, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. You made our day so personalized & special. We consider you a friend of ours, so let us know when we can go play outdoors!!! More...

Kara is great! She is blunt and bossy, two things which are necessary for a wedding planner. She will tell it like it is and always keep your best interest first. Hire her! The event will turn out perfectly! More...

Kara is worth EVERY penny! Let's begin by discussing how she instantly makes you feel special and important! She is on top of her game and responds very quickly! Talk about the most upbeat and kind person I have ever met! She continuously tried to make every detail as soon and reasonable as possible! Don't look any further... She's the BEST!! More...

We are so happy we worked with Kara and her team at Love This Day Events for our destination weekend Colorado ranch wedding! Being far away in New York City, Kara helped us find the best vendors in Colorado within our budget without the stress. She helped us stay on top of our timeline and listened very carefully to everything that was most important to us. Everything we wanted became a reality, thanks to Kara! More...

Kara Delay was absolutely fabulous!! I planned my wedding as a destination wedding. All the planning was done over the phone with Kara. When I arrived for the week long celebration I did not have to worry about one detail. She was competent, professional, organized, knowledgeable, friendly, and fun!! She helped me make decisions and was always available!! I would highly recommend her for your future wedding!!! More...

Kara was the greatest asset to our wedding, hands down. In planning a Colorado wedding from Texas, I knew I needed help and from the first moment I spoke to Kara on the phone, I knew she was the one to make all of our plans and dreams a reality. Kara kept me organized and on top of things so that at not one single moment in our five months of planning did I ever have a moment of stress or frustration. She recommended vendors, helped me put my vision into actuality and assembled the absolute best team to make our wedding spectacular. She was also just a delight to talk to and work with throughout the process. On my wedding day itself, she helped us transition from an outside wedding to a spectacular inside wedding (it decided to hail and snow on our wedding day) all the while keeping me calm and smiling. She was an invaluable piece to our wedding and you would be remiss to not hire her on the spot if you are planning a Colorado mountain wedding. More...

I could not have asked for more in a wedding planner. Not only did Kara find us the most incredible wedding location, she was able to negotiate our vendor contracts and help with every last detail. She kept me calm through the entire planning process and I literally could not have done any of it without her. My wedding weekend was perfect and I now have a friend for life! More...

We could not have put together our dream wedding without these guys!

Kara provided extremely valuable advice and suggestions, Kirsty helped with organization and coordinating the final details, and Rachel put together a beautiful setting for our event that was within our pre-determined budget. They made our lives easier by doing the heavy lifting, especially on the day of the wedding. Kirsty was an amazing 'Day-Of Coordinator' and she kept her composure in the face of some last-minute issues, which she quickly resolved. We felt comfortable throughout the entire event that she was on top of things, and the end result really showed it!

I would recommend this team of wedding planners to anyone thinking about getting married in the Grand County area - their knowledge of local vendors and ability to work out the logistics of a mountain wedding is unsurpassed.

Hire them, and then relax! You're in good hands.

Hire these ladies.

I have nothing but 100% positive feedback about working with Love This Day Events. We hired them for "month of" coordination as well as decor and flowers. In no way was this limited to "month of" work. Kara is a blast to work with and her happiness and creativity are contagious. She is an charismatic ball of energy and will totally get whatever vision you have and turn it into something more amazing. My wedding pinterest board had exactly 1 pin (I'm not a pintrester), yet she was able to understand my ramblings, ideas, thoughts, etc and turn it into the day of my dreams. Even more amazing, she was able do it all within our budget. Kirsty came along later and worked with us more month of and day of. She is fantastic and executed everything absolutely flawlessly. So many friends and family members have told me how impressed they were with Kirsty that day. She made any little misstep a non issue. We forgot the cake topper in our home state... NBD the flowers on top were even better! No guest book? Who cares, the postcards she put out were perfect! MOH with some serious stomach issues? Gross, but she handled it perfectly :) Rachel's flowers were stunning. My bridesmaids were obsessed w/ the crowns and they all looked and felt gorgeous.

Because of LTDE, we didn't stress at all the entire weekend and truly had the time of our lives. If you're even slightly considering hiring someone for total or partial coordination, DO IT and hire them. As out-of-staters I don't know how we would have pulled it off w/out them. One more note, I was 100% satisfied with all of the other vendors they recommended.

I can't say enough about how incredible Kara was to work with for our wedding. From our first meeting, I knew she just "got it" and was completely on board for the vision I had for my wedding. She was so helpful at every stage of planning, answering questions and giving recommendations promptly and always in a way that made me feel calm, taken care of, and not at all like I was just one of dozens of brides she was probably working with at the time. Her sense of humor and ease made it a true pleasure to work with her in the lead-up to the wedding and on the wedding day. On the wedding weekend itself, Kara went so far above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. She literally ran off to steam my veil five minutes before the ceremony started, after it had gotten wrinkled while taking photos. And that's just one of about a hundred little and big things she did that weekend to make the whole wedding go off without a single hitch. She enabled me, my husband, and our families to relax and really enjoy the time together without worrying about all the last minute things that came up or the set-up, break down, etc. For that, Kara's services were worth every penny and more. THANK YOU, KARA!!! More...

My husband and I could not recommend Kara and Kirsty from Love This Day Events any more highly! They were such a pleasure to work with and helped us have a seamless, beautiful and special wedding day. I can't imagine the planning process or the actual wedding day without them.

Kirsty is extremely professional, organized, responsive and -- most importantly to us -- very kind and a true pleasure to work with! Throughout the planning process, she was incredibly detail-oriented, making sure that we had a solid plan in place and coordinating behind the scenes with our vendors. She was also willing to field random questions from us and always had an expert opinion or advice to share! On the wedding day itself, Kirsty was on top of everything and attended to every little detail to make sure the day went smoothly. She even helped safety pin my dress when the bustle wouldn't work. Everyone in our wedding party had so much respect for Kirsty and told us how much they enjoyed her presence as well -- she kept everyone smiling and knowing where to be at any moment. And most importantly, she was so kind and caring to me and my husband, which helped make our wedding day even more special.

Likewise, we loved working with Kara as well, who is extremely experienced and has truly seen it all! She always had an expert opinion to share with us and always made sure we were on task and focusing on what was most important. Her vendor recommendations were truly phenomenal -- I don't think we could have assembled a better vendor team. And the floral design she prepared for our wedding was GORGEOUS. We couldn't have been happier with our flowers and how she helped the room come to life with small touches. She is very talented at both the planning and design elements of this job!

We recommend Kara and Kirsty extremely highly -- anyone would be extremely lucky to have them as part of their wedding day!

Kara and her team made my husband and I's experience completely stress free. You come into planning a wedding with all of your research and your general expectations based on friend/family experience as well as information found in magazines and online, but there will always be details you aren't aware of. Love This Day Events covered every detail and looked over every contract. They made sure everything was taken into account and our needs were met.

One of my favorite qualities about them is that they know how to make your wedding unique. You gather pictures from pinterest, and magazines of what you want, and they take those ideas and make something you've never seen before.

We worked very closely with Kara and she cuts the bullcrap. If a vendor is being unreasonable, she lets them know ASAP. If you aren't being ontop of things, she gets you back on track. You need this when planning a wedding because every moment counts.

This team is personable, VERY reasonably priced, and efficient. My advice to you is book them before they fill up.

Kara Delay is incredibly professional, detailed, thorough, creative, experienced, and all the other positive qualities you look for in a wedding planner. More than that, though, Kara is high energy and full of love -- the kind of energy and love you want to be surround with on your wedding day and in the planning process. What we will remember most about Kara is her high energy and expertise, as well as the joy (and relief!) of being able to look over at her the day of and know that everything was being taken care of and more... and in the most loving hands. HIRE HER!!! More...

Kara from Love This Day was so helpful throughout the wedding planning process. We had a bit of an unusual venue that required a lot of planning, and even though we only hired Kara for "month of" coordination she was a great help throughout, giving us recommendations for various vendors (all of which turned out as fabulous as she said). For the day of the wedding we did not work with Kara, but with one of the coordinators on her team, Jayme Raichart. I cannot say enough good things about Jayme. She was SO helpful - she coordinated our rehearsal, set up decor, scrambled to find table numbers last minute when we throughout we had lost ours, cleaned up at the end of the night, and put out fires I (thankfully!) don't even know about. Jayme was beyond amazing and I cannot recommend her enough - best money we spent on the entire wedding! More...

Kara is amazing. We hired her for month-of coordination and she was on top of it! She kept me and my husband on the right track and didn't miss a beat. We are both so glad that we decided to hire Love This Day - I know that the day of the wedding would have not been half of the amazing day it was without Kara there to help us plan everything in advance, and then make sure everything ran smoothly the day of as well. She went out of her way to understand our vision and then implement it (even though some of what we requested was a bit out of the norm!) She didn't bat an eye at any request we made - but rather went at any strange request we had with a "how can we make this happen" attitude. She has such a go-getter attitude and was an absolute blast to work with! She made our day the best one of our lives!
Love this Day is amazing - if you are thinking of hiring a wedding planner…. do it! Kara and her staff will take care of you and make your day everything you want it to be… and more.

Kara and her team did a really beautiful job in bringing my vision to life. I came to her with a crazy mix of things I liked and she brought it all together into a classy and memorable design. She worked well with my budget constraints and her enthusiasm for her work made it such a pleasure to work with her. I would highly recommend Love This Day Events to anyone. More...

I miss her now that the wedding is over. I had many people say they would not want to be my planner because maybe my husband and I are a bit picky. I know we were a challenging pair to get settled with a venue and overall look. Once we got better with our communication everything was great and she knocked it out of the park. I always felt she was keeping me on schedule and organized. There is not another person I would have trusted to run my wedding day. Kara gave me the wedding party of my dreams. Everything we wanted, décor, day of timing and execution was amazing. I totally trusted her with flowers and details at the reception, I made little to no suggestions and it was beautiful! More...

Kara is amazing! I am one of those girls who knows what she wants, knows what it looks like in my head, but couldn't tell you a name of a flower if my life depended on it. I sent Kara a million pictures of the bouquets I wanted for my girls, myself, and all the flowers for my ceremony and reception. I gave her my budget and basically said "get it done." And she did, brilliantly. She managed to take a piece of every picture I sent her and combined them all in to original bouquets and original pieces that mimicked my decor, setting, and theme. I also decided a month before the wedding that I wanted to change EVERYTHING- colors, styles, boutonnieres etc. and she changed it all without an up-charge, and without being even a little irritated with me. She brought petals for my flower girls, which I forgot I needed until a couple days before the wedding, and when she came down with our bouquets to where we were all getting dressed and ready, it was like the sun came out. She has a contagious laugh and an incredible positive energy. Kara was an absolute pleasure to work with at all stages of the game, even when I was not. :) I planned my wedding from the other side of the country and never once worried about the flowers being perfect.
Her work is amazing and everyone noticed. Even the groom.
If you need a florist, for anything, she's the way to go. I believe her company also offers other wedding related services, and if I had to do it all over again, I would have had them do it all. She really understood what I needed as a bride, someone to just be efficient and affordable, and give me exactly what I had envisioned.

Kara is incredible to work with! Her designs for our wedding were beautiful and exactly as we had envisioned. She was extremely responsive in the planning process (she would always return calls or emails within a couple hours at most) and was amazing at listening to what I had in mind and capturing our vision so perfectly. She came up with ideas that we hadn't thought of that made everything perfect. I am SO happy that we chose Kara to be our florist, she seemed to truly care about our vision for the wedding and she makes you feel as if you're her only client.
My only regret of the entire wedding is that I didn't hire Kara to be our day-of coordinator- it would have been well worth the extra money as she's organized and knows her venues so well that it would have made the day flow so much easier and would have taken stress off of me. I would highly recommend Kara, she is great to work with, listens to what you want and creates beautiful designs that truly capture your vision while staying in your budget.

Kara Delay and her team made my wedding day magical. She understood and shared my vision for the space and made it 10 times better. Kara was always available and made me feel like I was the only bride she worked for and by the far the most important. She was on the ball the day of and took care of everything so that I was able to kick back and enjoy the day. She was amazing and I look forward to working with her in any capacity possible again!

My husband and I were married at Devil's Thumb Ranch just over 3 years ago. Kara was AMAZING thoughout the entire planning process and execution of the event. She was so easy to work with and truly listened to what we wanted.
Kara also knew everyone at the venue and it was very apparent that their staff worked well, closely, and often with her. And the flowers were incredible... we had so many comments from our friends and family on the beautiful event space that had been created just for us. We felt so special!

It's been almost a year and I still rave about my day. I hired Kara Delay a little late into the planning process, but she had all sorts of different packages to accomodate exactly the amount of help planning and running the wedding day that I was looking for. I hear friends talking about how every wedding they go to after their own, or pictures they see in magazines make them rethink their own wedding, wishing they had done this or that differently, but I have no regrets at all. I loved every second, and having Kara there for it played a big part in that. I didn't have to worry about if something was going to get set up correctly, or if everyone was going to get to their correct place on time for the ceremony, because Kara took care of it. It really meant a lot to me that neither my mom nor my bridesmaids had to take time out of their enjoyment of the day to handle the little details, like when coffee was spilled on my dress minutes before the ceremony was to begin, or the Lladro cake topper fell off the cake, or how to display the placecards. I would recommend Kara 100% of the time. More...

5 Stars are not enough!

There are not enough words to describe how amazing Kara is! This is the sentiment of the bride and groom but also the guests! We simply LOVE her!

I really could not have pulled off the ceremony, reception, grooms dinner or all the other details, without Kara! She is fantastic! She made me feel very special and made my wedding celebration something I will never forget. And, I will never forget her!

I have one word for Kara...and that is FABULOUS! She is an absolute joy to work with. Our wedding day was so perfect...and I give all of the credit to Kara. She is organized, professional, and knows EVERYTHING about the Winter Park-Fraser-Tabernash area. Her energy is contagious and most importantly she makes your wedding day all about you...down to the smallest detail. She is truly the best and I would recommend her to anyone! More...
