Wedding Planning + Design Where Sophistication Meets the Wild West
Carefree Events offers wedding planning, design and coordination. As owner and lead planner, my style is unique in that I was raised in Europe. I love to meld European sophistication with the Wild West and the results are truly stunning!
My job is to make your vision for your wedding day a reality, while making the planning process and wedding day as seamless as possible for you and your guests.
Heather was the most incredible person to work with and made our wedding vision come to life better than we could have imagined. Every step of the way she was calm, kind and responsive, offered suggestions for vendors, helped with getting multiple vendor bids and signing contracts, stayed on track with our budget, sent reminders about payments, and thought about all the extra details I didn't even know to think of. Our wedding day was an absolute breeze because Heather took care of everything, so we were able to enjoy all the moments and not worry about planning details. She went above and beyond with her services, and helped us create the most beautiful and memorable day of our lives. When I saw everything we had spent a year planning come to life in front of me, I cried happy tears because it exceeded every expectation I had. Heather is an amazing person and wedding coordinator and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.

We hired Heather for day-of coordination for our wedding once we realized just how many things need to be done for the day to run smoothly. Hiring her was one of the best decisions we made. She helped us prep in the months leading up to the wedding by making a schedule in coordination with the rest of our vendors. She was easily available throughout the whole process. She did such a great job with our rehearsal the day prior making sure everyone was on the same page. The day of the event, she managed to do so many things all at once it was astounding. She paid close attention to details while also making sure everything was running according to plan and that guests were enjoying their experience. She helped us deal with less-than-ideal weather and was always ready to solve problems with innovative solutions. She was so prepared she even helped me fix a broken strap on my dress after some intense dancing...a true lifesaver! She is amazing at what she does and we couldn't be happier that we hired her for our big day. We couldn't imagine the wedding without her. Thank you Heather!

I honestly can't say enough positive things about how talented Heather is at her work. We decided to hire a wedding planner shortly after booking our venue, Rainbow Ranch, due to my husband and I living in NY and wanting a knowledgeable, experienced and connected wedding planner who lived in Montana to help us book all other vendors. Heather is all of these things and so much more.
She was so responsive, helped me stay organized and reassured me all the way up to and on my wedding day. Beyond that, our wedding day happened to be the first big snow of the season which put a big damper on my vision of being married on the beautiful lawn with the arch covered in flowers. Heather had her husband build a GORGEOUS wooden arch that seriously looked like Jesus himself had built it to keep my dreams of that flower arch alive. She worked with the venue to come up with an amazing back up plan (which she then executed seamlessly) to move the ceremony to the covered deck with the new arch covered in flowers, the cocktail hour was moved from the lawn to two covered and heated tents and looked like a cozy vintage living room. Above all, she calmed me and told me to trust her and I am so glad that I did. EVERYTHING about the planning process AND the day of the wedding was better because of Heather.
Every last detail from the invites, to the place settings, napkins, decor, etc., was perfect and that was due to Heather.
I am forever grateful we hired her and would recommend her for any future Montana bride!
