Friday Introduction

Meet Gabriele | Calluna’s Lead Planner

Friday, July 7

Gabriele Harden (Lead Planner), a native of Boulder, Colorado joined Calluna Events in 2007 as an intern, using the opportunity to nurture her excitement and interest in event and wedding planning while completing college requirements.Gabbie has extensive experience and background with Calluna as one of our first interns, then Assistants and Lead Planner. She has seen and done it all, including being the Day of Coordinator for our owner Heather’s own wedding in 2008 (talk about pressure!). She brings a calm presence to her weddings but is extremely detail oriented and thorough, attributes always a must for any good wedding planner! We are thrilled to have Gabbie as part of the team for so long and see her not only as a valuable member of the team but a dear friend. And we are so happy that we were able to help Gabbie with her own wedding to long time beau Max this June in Beaver Creek. Congratulations! It’s so sweet when one of our own ties the knot!

During her growth with Calluna Events, Gabbie has mastered the use of her innate sense of organization and attention to detail to be able to realize the potential of every wedding and event. Gabbie loves the challenge and complexity of adapting the planning process to each event, and bringing all the detailed pieces together. And she loves getting to know each of her clients and being a part of their special day.

XX, Calluna


A little more about Gabbie!

My favorite part of a wedding is… 

  • When the bride meets her groom at the end of the aisle. It is such a magical moment, and you can almost see all of the anticipation relaxing into the surrounding love, joy, beauty and fun of the day!

When not planning weddings you can find me…

  • Spending time with my hubby- binging our latest TV show obsessions, going for a run or a hike, playing with our new puppy or settling into our new house!

My favorite cocktail is…

  • Wine or a margarita!

My favorite dessert is…

  • Cakes or cupcakes…anything with frosting!

My favorite movie is…

  • Sound of Music.

Top three things to spend on for a wedding…

  • Photographer, the florals/decor and a planner of course!

If I wasn’t a wedding planner I would be…

  • A nurse.

My guilty pleasure is…

  • Watching Hallmark Christmas movies during the holidays.
