Thursday, November 24

We hope you all enjoyed our Thanksgiving Traditions blog, we absolutely loved sharing our stories with you! Today we are wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving….we hope your day is filled with laughter, delicious food and bottles of tasty wine. We truly cannot express our gratitude for all of you, you make our jobs enjoyable, and we are so appreciative of all of the support we have received over the years here at Calluna Events. Today we are sharing with you what we are grateful for, and we would love to hear what each and every one of you is thankful for on this Thanksgiving holiday!

Enjoy! Xo, Calluna


Heather Dwight ::  “One more year in the books and I couldn’t be more grateful as we enter our 14th year in business. I am inspired by the Calluna Community – our clients who choose Calluna, the vendors and venues we work so closely with and who continually entrust their clients with us. I am thankful to be able to go to work each day and do something I love and am passionate about. I am particularly grateful for our clients from this year. Witnessing your weddings is a great honor!

I am forever grateful and humbled by our staff, some who have been with Calluna for nearly eleven years and some nearly a year. They are the heart and soul of Calluna,  who allow us to continue to grow and expand, who work tirelessly and who have such positive enthusiasm for this industry. I consider them all friends and love the impact they’ve had on my life and my business.

I am grateful for the love and support of my family and my friends, especially my husband, Brandon, our daughter Maggie and son Grey.

I’m grateful to live in such an incredible place as Boulder. For fresh air, sunshine, hikes in the mountains, yoga, a good latte, great chocolate, travel to new places, adventure, patience, deep breaths, acceptance and love.”

Kristen Kennedy :: “This year I am thankful for so many things! I am thankful for my parents for supporting my education (I graduated from CU in May!) and allowing me to have such an amazing college experience. I am thankful for the opportunity to move to Denver and explore a new city and all of its amazing restaurants, bars and beautiful parks! I am thankful for Calluna, and the opportunity to grow from intern to assistant event planner…And all of the amazing weddings I have been able to work this season, Rebecca & Ethan’s, Danielle & Adam’s and Jen & Lance’s were some of my favorites!   I am just so happy to be living a happy & healthy life in gorgeous Colorado and can’t wait to see what happens in the next year!”

Melanie Roberts :: “I’m so grateful year over year for the rich blessings life has given me! I’m warmed by a strong blanket of love from the best family and friends I could ever hope for. I’ve been gifted with fantastic education that has allowed me to dip my toes in the professional pool while also giving me the tools to make thoughtful & impactful decisions for myself and for my community. I’m lucky for the beautiful opportunity Calluna has provided me – not only some of my favorite girls but has let me swoon over every wedding for the last 3 years! Most importantly, I’m so thankful to be living each gorgeous Colorado day with a healthy body and happy heart, ready to conquer all that 2017 will bring us!”

Gabby Sarbaugh :: “This last year has been amazing – full of milestones and new beginnings for myself and loved ones. I’m grateful for my patient fiancé and for the love and excitement in planning for our wedding, marriage, and the next adventures in life! I’m thankful for my loving and supportive family and friends. I cherish this time of the year when I am able to spend quality time with them relaxing, connecting, and enjoying the holidays. I’m grateful for strong and inspiring colleagues who motivate me to work hard and well.  Finally, I’m thankful for life’s simple pleasures: quiet nights at home, gorgeous mountain views, sunshine, laughter, and puppies (to name a few). Happy Thanksgiving!”
