Love Notes
...the best money we spent... [The La Luz team] made sure we were fed immediately, that we always had a drink in our hands, and that we were having fun. I did not worry about a thing the whole night, and it was fabulous!!
— Chelsea McCoy
[La Luz] was exceptional to work with. As any engagement year goes, I was incredibly busy and managing to execute on my dream wedding was not something I could do alone. We were doing a destination wedding to Santa Fe, NM from Austin, TX and planning a wedding afar seemed daunting. After interviewing several options, [La Luz] was the clear winner. She was prompt, had good follow up, and was detail oriented right off the bat. She's easy to work with and has a great personality. She did a great job holding us accountable for tasks we needed to complete and keeping us on track with all the milestones to planning our wedding. We were super comfortable asking questions and really leaned on her expertise when selecting vendors. Contracts, payments, etc were all easy to manage with her spreadsheets too. Wedding day was absolutely perfect. [La Luz] did a good job preparing us prior and was so wonderful to bring us water throughout the night to make sure we were hydrated! She coordinated with every vendor making things run smoothly before and during the wedding. Everything was well executed and we had a blast. Highly recommend working with her and the La Luz team!

If I could give La Luz Weddings and Events more than five stars, I’d do it in a heartbeat... We are so grateful for La Luz Weddings and Events!...If you’re on the fence and maybe don’t think hiring a coordinator is worth it, take it from me—it is 100% worth it.
— Maddie McCullough
[La Luz] strikes the perfect balance of being extremely organized and on top of things while being equally laid back, easy-going, and chill. I was never stressed that something would fall through the cracks. At the same time, I never felt that [La Luz] was overwhelming me with requests and reminders. I cannot emphasize enough how crucial this balance is. Wedding planning is insanely taxing mentally and emotionally, with or without a wedding planner, and having someone that keeps you both calm and on track - both for the months leading up to the wedding and the day of - is truly invaluable.

Fun facts

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

We value all of our couples immensely and work best when we prioritize the wedding experience over the napkin fold.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

We (Shelby & Courtney) had been independently established in the wedding industry for about 10 years before we crossed paths. Shelby's brother attended a wedding that Courtney was coordinating and knew the two should connect. After chatting over a drink (unfortunately not margaritas), we realized how beautifully our personal and professional goals aligned. Shortly after, we made the leap to officially merge our two businesses. After all, two heads are better than one! The rest is history!

What are your favorite activities to do in The Rockies?

When we have a weekend away, both of our families prefer to be outdoors and we LOVE to camp & hike. Make sure to check out Middle Fork Lake outside of Red River!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

Our favorite part of a wedding is when it's over...BUT WAIT! Hear us out! When the big day is said and done, there is so much satisfaction in knowing and seeing how the couple's vision came to life. We can see this through the fun that was had and the memories that were made.
