Mountainesque Weddings

Mountainesque is an intimate wedding and elopement planning company for couples who value intention over tradition!

Hi, I’m Emily the owner and lead planner of Mountainesque.
I’m a certified event planner with big city experience and small town vibes.

My experience ranges from large scale luxury weddings, intimate celebrations to adventure focused elopements. Creating experiences rather than 6-hour soirees.. that’s where you’ll find me.
A wedding should be as memorable as it is beautiful because as much fun as it is picking out linen colors… that’s not the only reason we’re here.

We are here to keep the focus on what it’s all about, the two of you. The Mountainesque team has experience and expertise unique to this area, and we can’t wait to bring your mountain wedding dreams to life!

Love Notes
1000000/10 We cannot recommend Emily enough. She truly took care of everything and kept me calm throughout the entire process. Emily worked with all of our vendors to coordinate an ABSOLUTELY PERFECT wedding day. She listened to everything we wanted and truly gave us the wedding better than we could've ever dreamed of. From the beginning, she had clear communication and was there every step of the way. She worked with our families and was so kind and confident throughout the whole journey. Emily understood our vision from the start and found vendors who made the day so much fun. We could feel how passionate she was and she chose vendors who were just as passionate. That energy came together and created so much love and joy for us on our big day. She kept us calm when we were stressed and we walked into our wedding day not worrying about one thing. She is truly amazing and you NEED to hire her as your wedding planner!! I cannot say this enough, she is the best decision you will ever make!!

I don't even know where to start. Emily literally made our wedding possible! Emily took all of our crazy ideas in stride and made them a reality. She provided the perfect amount of structure, guidance and support throughout the entire planning process. Leading up to the wedding she was on top of communication and logistics with us and our vendors. Her day of coordination was smooth and steadfast, she was calm and collected and reminded me to be calm and collected too! Her entire team went above and beyond making sure all the details were brought to life and that we had the best day ever! I am so grateful to have worked with Emily and would recommend her to anyone getting married, no matter what your vision is!

Words can’t express how thankful we are for our amazing, intimate, and beautiful elopement. Emily took our scattered ideas and created a vision that captured exactly what we wanted AND what we didn’t yet know we wanted. Emily had it all taken care of with the mood-board, inventory, and timeline she carefully made and provided us. She also ensured that all moving parts were carefully chosen and prepared ahead of time, with constant communication with us. By our wedding day, Emily and her team felt like old friends we were reuniting with rather than strangers we met with over Zoom — only laughs, authenticity, and FUN! Thank you, Mountainesque Weddings for our elopement day! It was truly a dream come true!
— Isaiah & Shayanna
Emily is the best! We couldn’t be more thrilled with our decision to hire her to help plan our Durango elopement. She was so helpful during the planning phase and thought of everything we didn’t know we needed, came to the rescue with an even better option when our immediate location fell through, and went above and beyond on the big day to make sure everything went smooth. She is so organized and communicative, and well connected with amazing local vendors. In the end she helped us pull off the most perfect elopement of our dreams. We highly recommend working with Emily and Mountainesque Weddings for your special day!

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

Pulling inspiration from nature and our surroundings, we find our design style to be organic and chic. Our motto is "over-prepare and go with the flow." Our goal is to provide unique venue spots, unthinkable ceremony locations, and out of the box ideas. You are choosing a mountain wedding for a reason, and we want that to be a reflection of your overall weekend!

What are your favorite kinds of couples to work with?

Mountainesque couples are intentional with who they celebrate with and how they celebrate their day. They would much rather create a weekend experience rather than just a 6 hour soiree. Rule books and wedding traditions are simply suggestions, and most opt for the adventurous parts of a wedding! Going to the mountains is like going home, and our couples want to share that with their closest friends and family!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

We will absolutely travel anywhere with spectacular views! We are based in southwest Colorado, but find ourselves all over the state. We don't limit ourselves to the Rockies though, we've recently added Alaska to our repertoire!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

Hands down, boots on the ground wedding day set-up! Dreaming up your spaces, and seeing them come to life is the most rewarding part of the entire planning process! When the room is filled with laugher and cheers, and the two of you are 100% living in the moment that's when we remind ourselves why we do what we do :)
