Kerri, Emma, and Julia helped plan my July 2013 wedding and I can't say enough great things about ATOB!
I wanted a wedding planner who would keep the planning process light and fun but would also handle all contract negotiations and the not so fun parts of wedding planning. ATOB really delivered! Kerri and the team helped us come up with a stunning design, color palate, and feel for our wedding. She helped us select fantastic vendors who we adored. She also helped us secure several discounts that we would not have received if it were not for Kerri and her deep relationships with those inside the wedding industry. Be aware that there may be some slow points in the planning process when there isn't much for you or the planners to be doing. Enjoy those slow times and know that when it is time to really focus on your wedding, Kerri and her team will be ready to execute.
While we always felt like we received great value by hiring ATOB, that value truly came to light during the week of our wedding. ATOB delivered the welcome bags, picked up last minute items for the wedding, finished all of the small items I hoped to get to but never did, picked up the groom's cake, and personally spoke with each person in our wedding party so that everyone was aware of the wedding timeline. My fiancee and I were able to enjoy the week before our wedding with each other and our friends and family. We were spared from every stress and last minute task that still needed attention. Kerri helped me achieve my highest goal which was to be able to relax and enjoy my wedding.
On the day of the wedding, Kerri and Emma were everywhere and nowhere all at the same time. They were making sure the vendors were on task while also making sure I was happy and relaxed at all times. They seamlessly moved our outdoor ceremony to an indoor location when bad weather moved in. Our guests commented that if they didn't know the ceremony was supposed to be outdoors, they would have been none the wiser. No last minute rushing for our vendors and guests, thanks to Kerri.
The special touches ATOB provided on our wedding day deserve special mention. When my husband's suspenders lost a button, Emma hand-sewed the button back on while he celebrated with friends. The ATOB ladies payed special attention to my elderly grandfather and made sure he was comfortable and included. As my husband and I walked back down the aisle, we were greeted in private with glasses of champagne. ATOB delivered bites from our cocktail hour to us while we signed our marriage license. ATOB decorated our our newlywed suite in rose petals and made sure late night snacks were waiting for us.
They kept us on-task during the wedding so that nothing was too late or failed to occur but never interrupted our fun. We really were guests at our own wedding--It is possible and expect nothing less!
The event itself was stunning, thanks to ATOB and the amazing vendors Kerri helped us select. Our guests commented that it was the most magical evening of their lives. For weeks after, even acquaintences who didn't attend our wedding stopped us to tell us that they had heard from others how amazing the night was. We even received thank you cards from our guests thanking us for including them in our wedding and an event that was unlike any other they had ever attended.
Aside from choosing my husband as my spouse, hiring ATOB was hands down the best wedding-related decision I made!

I have been working with ATOB for the past year planning my Vail wedding and have loved every second of it! The wedding went off without a hitch (that I knew about) and all my guests told me it was the best wedding they have ever been too! I had a complete stress-free wedding planning experience, all due to Kerri and the A Touch of Bliss crew. I would recommend them to EVERYONE.

My groom, Dan, and I got engaged in Jan. 2013. We both work time-intensive jobs in journalism that rarely have consistent schedules day to day, and as such barely leave us time to figure out (somewhat) healthy dinner options let alone take on something as immense as planning a wedding. Enter the "ATOB" girls.
I met Kerri and the crew at a photography shoot I conducted that profiled A Touch of Bliss. As I packed up my gear after the shoot, I not-so-nonchalantly asked Kerri this not-so-hypothetical question: "If a bride has only her venues booked with only 4.5 months to go until the big day is she totally screwed?" Instantly Kerri put me at ease and expedited the consultation/booking process over the course of about 72 hours. We couldn't have been more thrilled with Sarah and Stephanie taking on our case.
As our lead planner, Sarah whipped our budget, inspirations, and hopes into shape, entertaining every idea and notion in a cost-conscious way. She kept us on task with the very brief amount of time we had left to make our wedding happen, and quieted all the noise that the endless options drum up. With easy-to-navigate lists, suggested vendors, timelines and meeting schedules, we were right on track in no time. No thing was too big or small for these two.
The very reasonable fee we paid to hire ATOB made itself up one-hundred fold in having a team on our side who could find budget-cutting measures, get us great vendor deals, and keep us honest to our necessary budget proposal.
On the day of our wedding, everyone in our wedding party and immediate family (not to mention all of the vendors) knew exactly when and where they had to be somewhere, thanks to the meticulous, role-specific schedules the ladies drew up. We kept on time (something that's incredibly important when doing a big church wedding when the church needs its space for services that same day), on task, and totally at ease. Bobby pins, hairspray, handheld steamers for those last-minute wrinkled items, breakfast foods and coffee, everything was managed and taken care of so that neither I, my groom, or any of my family members had to worry about the mishaps that inevitably find their way into a wedding day. The ceremony, the reception, everything went off without a hitch, leaving us to focus on the only thing that really mattered: our marriage.
I was never someone who thought that I would need or want a wedding planner involved in my wedding preparations. I very much had a "I'm sure I can do it myself/how hard could it be" attitude. But as soon as I got engaged, it became immediately clear that there are a zillion more details and questions than you ever imagined possible involved, and going it alone can practically become a full-time job. You cannot go wrong if you decide to bring these ladies into your wedding planning roster. I'm sure they will prove as instrumental in your process as they did for us. Happy wedding to you all!

My husband was really skeptical in spending the money to hire a wedding planner. I was stressed out of my mind in attempting to plan a wedding with such a high guest count and not that high of a budget. We hired ATOB because they basically said they'd pay for themselves with the discount they'd get from other vendors. They also boasted about their ability to keep us on budget. In the end, we were over budget and a large chunk of being over was ATOB's fee. I think we could have successfully negotiated the contracts without them. We did with one of the vendors. We also found a cheaper liquor distributor despite ATOB telling us the one they used was 25% cheaper than Argonaut. They were not, and I was disappointed that they weren't constantly checking prices to back up what they said. This led me to believe we we could have found cheaper vendors without them overall. I didn't really have the time to do it, so I was thankful I had them to offer vendors and set up meetings. That took some of the stress off of me to organize schedules. Ultimately though, I wonder how much they helped. I still spent a considerable amount of time at work dealing with wedding planning, which was what I was trying to avoid. Many of the style ideas and DIY projects I did on my own. I tried to farm out a task to their interns, but it didn't get done, and then I stopped trusting that anything would get done unless I did it myself. That could be saying more about my A type personality then their service, though. I will say the Day of Coordination was invaluable, and I would DEFINITELY hire them again to coordinate day of. I did not worry about a single detail on our wedding day, and it was perfect. Rehearsal dinner coordination was also flawless. However, that package is significantly cheaper than having them plan the whole thing. They're super professional and courteous, and maybe my expectations were too high. Two months later, I just don't think it was worth it.

I can't begin to explain how thankful we were for A touch of Bliss. Jazmine and Laura were BEYOND amazing. We were hesitant about getting a wedding planner because our venue assured us that we would not need one. However, every blog I read and every piece of advice I received was that you NEED a planner. I completely will give that same advice now! My mom and I had done so much early in the process and didn't know if a planner was important just because we felt we could do it... we were wrong!!! Between the logistics of the day, setting up, tearing down, keeping everyone together, helping my fainting BMs, organizing the vendors, etc, etc, etc, Jazmine and Laura were so on top of things. I can't say enough positive comments about them. Even my dad (who was also very hesitant about hiring a planner) couldn't talk more highly of TOB! Especially at the end of the night, when my parents were tired and too many cocktails had been consumed, they learned that the girls had taken every wedding item back to their room. They could not have been more elated! The catering managers at our venue were great, but they were done with the event when the dinner was over. TOB stayed until 1am making sure there was not a task left undone.
I was very organized throughout the wedding planning process, but a few days before the wedding, everything started moving so fast and there were so many small tasks to be accomplished. Jazmine picked up right where I left off and completed every single one of those items. She knew exactly what to do and didn‘t need my guidance. From the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you to Jazmine and Laura for being AMAZING. The wedding day could not have gone more smoothly, and I know that is because of TOB!

When my husband proposed to me I instantly started looking through wedding magazines, pinning pictures on pinterest and feeling over whelmed with choices, to-do’s and options. After only a few weeks of being engaged I knew that I needed to enlist the help of a wedding planner. After doing a ton of research and speaking with several vendors who work in the wedding industry there was one name that continued to rise to the top, Kerri Butler and A Touch of Bliss. My Husband wasn’t sure that hiring a wedding planner was an efficient use of money but after one meeting with Kerri and Becky he was completely convinced. My husband and I had a long engagement (about two years) so we genuinely got to know Kerri and Becky very well! Throughout the entire process they guided us through every up and down, handled every worry, pain, task… I mean everything. We fell in love with the vendors that Kerri Recommended for us – it was amazing how well she got to know us, our tastes, personalities and dreams for our wedding and turned them into a reality! ! Kerri has such a positive reputation in the Denver wedding industry scene and it made working with our vendors extremely turn-key and fluid. On the actual wedding day Kerri and Becky were a dream team! My wedding party, family and friends all got to relax and enjoy the event without having to worry about anything. ATOB executed every detail of our wedding beautifully and they continuously saved the day from dealing with high winds, coordinating our LARGE wedding party, to even fixing my Mother In Laws dress when it broke. I really could not say enough about these amazing gals and honestly believe that any couple that gets married without hiring ATOB and Kerri are out of their minds!

Having a destination wedding is a challenge especially when it is in the mountains. My daughter, the bride, and I went round and round as to whether or not we needed a wedding planner. Since it was at the Westin Hotel in Beaver Creek, CO, the hotel provided a "planner". We had
already picked out all the vendors so we didn't think we would need the help from a wedding coordinator. but
I am soooo happy I listened to my daughter. I CANNOT begin to tell you how ELATED we were by Jazmine and Laura, team members of A Touch of Bliss. They were incredible. We had a really BIG wedding party (23 in all) with a lot of moving parts. And we had 185 guests. I just couldn't get over how they set up everything so
perfectly, taking care of every little detail. then taking command of the rehearsal and then the BIG DAY. When my husband and I got back to our room after the reception, EVERY single thing and I mean EVERY LITTLE THING
was all boxed up very neatly and well organized. It was just so wonderful to have them there to make us feel like it was all under control at all times and IT WAS!!! Of all the decisions we made for the wedding, having a Touch of Bliss be a part of our plans was THE BEST
DECISION of all. I CANNOT thank them enough and want to recommend both Jazmine and Laura to any future brides. We just couldn't be happier - everything was PERFECT! Seriously MAGICAL!

As recent transplants to Denver, we had nothing more than The Knot and online reviews to serve as a starting point for planning our wedding. After initially attempting to go at it alone, we arrived at the inevitable conclusion that a planner was needed. Five minutes into our initial meeting with Keri was all that it took to convince us that ATOB was the way to go, and they never failed to disappoint from that moment forward. Our planning team of Becky and Sarah provided the guidance and discipline that we needed to stay on track with everything from locking down an amazing venue to ensuring the smallest details were covered on our wedding day. Their calm but firm approach was appreciated more times than we could ever count. From crisis aversion to leveraging vendor relationships, Becky and Sarah’s professionalism, timeliness, and understanding was everything we could have asked for in a planner. To use a cliché from just about every review here: looking back there is no way we could have pulled off half of the wedding we had without the ATOB team. We cannot recommend ATOB highly enough. There’s a reason for the pages of five star reviews here, and we’re grateful to be able to add to the list. To Keri, Becky, and Sarah: thank you, thank you thank you!

My husband and I recently got married in Estes Park, Colorado, and hired ATOB to help us with our wedding plans. When we first hired them, my husband was very skeptical about having a wedding planner, thinking that they would either hijack the wedding from us or just steal our money and not do anything. Now, after our great experience with ATOB, the first thing he tells his friends that get engaged is to get a wedding planner.
We hired ATOB a year and a half before our wedding date, and while planning we moved from Denver to DC and then to Los Angeles. During all of that craziness, ATOB helped us with wedding planning every step of the way. They took a vague concept of what we wanted for our wedding and turn it into a reflection of our personalities, our history and our families. I had the pleasure of working with Becky, Lindsey and Emma, and these ladies were absolutely amazing throughout the entire process, accommodating our long distances issues and keeping me from freaking out about the small things that seem to always come up at the last minute. For example, we weren't able to make our welcome bags and then ship them to Colorado, so ATOB made them for us and delivered them to our guests. All of our guests loved those welcome bags, and it was all thanks to Lindsey and Emma that they got done and that they looked so great.
We have gotten so many compliments about our wedding and how smoothly it went (even despite the threat of some mountain summer rainstorms), and a lot of these comments were related to ideas that ATOB had for the wedding or assisted us with creating. What made it even better was that my parents were completely relaxed knowing that Lindsey and Emma were in charge of everything and could enjoy the wedding with us, instead of worrying about those problems that always tend to come up on the day of. On your wedding day, you want to be able to spend as much time as possible with your guests having a good time, and it was so great to know that we had Lindsey and Emma to take care of everything else.
These ladies not only help you with your wedding planning, they become your friends in the process and we are so, so grateful to them for everything they did for us. Your first decision in the wedding planning process should be to hire ATOB - I promise you will not regret it.
The girls at A Touch of Bliss are amazing!!! I literally had the wedding of my dreams, one that never would have been possible had I not worked with A Touch of Bliss! I went into my first meeting thinking I needed a planner just the week before my wedding, helping with minor details. I met with them and they explained what their full service package was, and I realized that might be the best option for me. It was full service- from start to finish! They helped me with every detail of my wedding, and I could not have been happier. I worked with Lindsay, who I would highly recommend asking for. I know all the girls there are great, but Lindsay has to be the best! There was never a time in our six months of planning that I was stressed, she handled all the details in an organized, professional matter. Every meeting we had was planned, but she kept it positive and fun! She read me very well and was able to select vendors that were perfect for me. I only had to meet with one florist and one photographer. She knew my budget and what I was looking for and that made the process so much easier!
If you are even considering working with a planner then you should call A Touch of Bliss and learn more about them and what they can offer you- you will be so happy you did!

I had the pleasure of working with Becky and Kerry from A Touch of Bliss for my wedding in July. My now husband and I live in Miami and were getting married in Boulder- and these two made planning from a distance easy! Their vendor recommendations were spot on, and I loved that I didn't have to do any research. They had done all the work for me and had a cohort of great vendors to pull from.
They were very professional and truly worked for me. Whenever I needed to schedule (or reschedule) a meeting with a vendor, they took care of everything. They were prompt with emails, and I never felt out of touch. They took care of everything that I didn't want to deal with no questions asked- and that made the whole wedding planning experience even more enjoyable for me.
On the day of the wedding, everything flowed perfectly because of their work! I would have been lost without them, and they did such a good job of keeping things rolling. But you would never have known that they were working vigorously behind the scenes! Again, very professional and discrete.
These ladies were worth every penny. They quickly made up their fee in the discounts that they were able to negotiate (another thing I hate doing, but they did such a good job hammering out contracts!). Becky and Kerry were creative, hard working, and a joy to be around. I would highly recommend them and A Touch of Bliss to any bride out there!

Because my now husband and I are both in the Air Force, even though we were engaged for over a year we were unable to commit to a date until 6 weeks before the wedding. Needless to say it was crunch time. I found A Touch of Bliss and they came to the rescue! There is no way we could have pulled it off without our amazing consultants Jamie and Emma. They started from scratch, together we created an inspiration board, and from there they put together a fairy tale! Seeing everything come together on the wedding day was magical and it would have never happened without them! A Touch of Bliss will make your wedding day dreams come true!

Kerri and Sarah pulled out all the stops to make Chris' and my wedding spectacular! They completely understood the "feel" we were going for and had many creative ideas for personal touches and details. They went with us to our vendor appts so we knew what questions to ask and how to get the best price. They also manage your budget so you're not concerned with going overboard. On the day of the wedding I felt completely secure knowing that they would manage any problems that would occur. In fact, I didn't even know about some of the issues until a week after the wedding! Very excellent work indeed!

Becky and Sarah at A Touch of Bliss were a huge help with the wedding planning. I was planning from a distance and had a lot of other stuff going so having them was huge. I was also so thankful to have them the day of. They were very professional and solved any issue that came up so I didn't have to worry at all. I had a great day on my wedding day and never knew of any of the issues that occurred...and neither did the guests.

Kerri and Becky helped us plan our CO wedding from half way around the world. They were helpful in getting all of the vendors in order and went to work when issues popped in the time leading up to the wedding (transportation, etc.). They really made the last few days leading up to and through the wedding stress free so we could focus on spending time with our guests. The wedding day went smoothly and they always seemed to be available when they were needed. Overall, very happy with A Touch of Bliss and there help and guidance made our wedding better than we could have expected.

Kerri was the best choice I made for our wedding. She helped me plan a destination wedding in Colorado. Whenever anything fell through, like my rehearsal dinner did twice, Kerri found me wonderful replacement options. When my dress malfunctioned, she had a fix. Kerri helped me find the DJ, photographer, florist, and venues. She can do absolutely anything from sewing to decorating! My wedding day was perfect in great part due to Kerri.
Member Since: 5/27/2011
There are so many heat things to say about Kerri and her team. There was never a time where an email or all went unanswered. And despite the fact that my fiancée and I took on more than we can chew (which is nothing new) ATOB took all the pieces we made and created the perfect wedding day. Everything was perfect and they thought of everything. The venue was new to them but still everything was perfect. Even if there were hiccups we didn't see them.
The guests all said it's the best Wedding they have ever been to and I couldn't agree more. The night was truly spectacular.
I knew from day one these were our wedding planners. And it definitely was solidified at our 2 month out meeting when every idea Kerri had thought of for our day was something we thought of or had already bought. Thats when you know they are really listening to you. :)
You don't have to look any further for your planner. No one does it better.

No matter your budget or style or size, A Touch of Bliss will make the whole process easier, more fun, and more beautiful. I spoke with several wedding planners because I knew that my busy schedule would make planning difficult. A Touch of Bliss stood out from day one, and kept it up all to the end of the event. Kerri and her team helped me put my tastes into wedding details that I would have never dreamed of, until we had an amazing event that surpassed anything I could have planned. We received compliments from the vendors and guests all night long, and our wedding looked like it was twice the actual cost.
I loved their ability to understand my tastes even when I couldn't put it into words. They know all the best vendors so I was never guessing on quality. They stayed on budget, on time, and best of all, their hard work gave me time and peace of mind so I could enjoy the entire process and event with my family and bridesmaids, rather than placing burdens of work and stress on them. The wedding went completely smooth, everything was timed and coordinated. All I had to do was the "fun" stuff of picking and choosing, and Kerri and her team brought it all together and made it happen. A Touch of Bliss was the BEST decision I made for my wedding.

Kerri (the owner) and Becky (an assistant planner) made our wedding a dream come true! From the day I first met Kerri I knew that my wedding planning had turned from stressful to fun. She ensured that every step was exciting and easy, planning vendor meetings, tastings, fittings, and more. She communicated clearly and thoroughly throughout the months-long planning process and made every meeting a joy!
The final weeks before the wedding Kerri and Becky exuded positivity and excitement about our big day and were available for anything we needed. For example, 3 days before our wedding I decided I wanted to provide out of town guests with gift bags. When I asked if it was too late, they replied "of course not!" and promptly put the bags together. This was only one of the many last minute requests that they handled with grace and attention to detail.
The day of the wedding Kerri and Becky were AMAZING. The list of incredible things they did is endless, but here is one example: the seamstress forgot to put in a pick-up in my dress, so Kerri (an excellent seamstress herself) put it in for me about 20 minutes before I walked down the aisle. My bridesmaids (many of whom are planning their own weddings) all remarked on how amazing it was that not only Kerri and Becky were doing SO much to put together the details for the wedding, but also that they responded to any little request with a smile and an attitude of "of course we can handle that!" It seemed that they had thought of everything and were prepared for any situation that might come up.
My husband and I got to be guests at our own wedding and did not feel stressed at all because we knew K & B had everything handled. At one point I thought of something I needed Kerri to do (moving a guest book so more guests could sign it) and when I asked her to do it she had already thought of it herself. Wow!!!!
Overall, our experience with A Touch of Bliss was outstanding. Guests repeatedly remarked on how great our wedding was, and we felt calm and pampered on the best day of our lives. The price tag for the service was relatively high (we paid about 20% of our overall budget for A Touch of Bliss services) but it was worth every single penny. My wedding will remain a wonderful and stress-free memory, and I will continue to be grateful to Kerri and Becky for their hard work to make sure that everything went according to plan.

I was very happy with A Touch of Bliss! The owner Kerri is extremely responsive and willing to answer any questions. The coordinator that worked with my for my wedding, initially was challenged to communicate with but was willing to listen and address any concerns I had. On the day of our wedding, they executed my vision and the day was great. They were able to work with all the vendors to ensure they had access to the venue and put my mind at ease that everything would go smoothly. They kept us on schedule to ensure that we were able to experience every special moment. Overall, I was very happy with the final results!
