  • I told Ciera what I pictured and she made it happen, above and beyond my expectations. My elopement was executed to perfection. All of the vendors Ciera recommended were also spectacular as well. I am so grateful to have Ciera as a part of my favorite day. It was an incredible experience working with someone so gracious and talented. Thank you for everything, Ciera!!!

  • I'm not sure I could ever say enough about Ciera and Lucky Penny Event Planning to do her justice! Ciera made our wedding everything we wanted! I'm one of those brides that had no idea of what to do or where to start with planning, so having Ciera guide me along the way was so appreciated! I told her certain things that were important to my husband and I, and she took that, added her own expertise and vision, and produced an absolutely beautiful wedding which greatly exceeded our expectations! She does a great job making you feel like you're the only one she's working with and is very attentive and quick to respond to calls and emails. She's organized, responsive, professional, well respected in the event planning/wedding community, but most importantly she's just an awesome person! Let Ciera help you with all your event planning needs and you will definitely NOT be disappointed! I'd hire her again and again and recommend her to anyone! Thanks Ciera for a memorable and beautiful wedding!

  • Absolutely incredible service, personality, and quality!!! She helped make our wedding exactly what we hoped it could be. From the moment we began working with Ciera she helped us navigate changing plans, coordinating vendors, and even picking me up spanx on my wedding day. We live in Oklahoma and she made it feel like we were planning a wedding just down the street, when really it was in small town Colorado. She will give you piece of mind and be one of the best investments you can make in your wedding budget. She has ranges of options for every budget and makes planning extremely doable. If I could give her 10 or 100 stars I would. She made our day truly magical.

  • Ciera was there from day one finding the perfect photographers, personal chef and officiant for our elopement. She helped us find a stunning ceremony site in front of a waterfall and even lent me her Bogg shoes so I could cross the creek without getting soaked! Our intimate dinner was especially romantic due to Ciera's knack for styling. She is incredibly upbeat, easy to work with and makes whatever you want happen.
