  • We could wrap this whole entire experience up with the word REMARKABLE! Krysta and her team are simply at a level higher than impeccable! We knew we wanted her from the first conversation with her. She is a delightful individual, and super easy to work with. There is no task too big for her! I’m pretty sure we had some obstacles to overcome with our one of a kind style wedding, but she made everything happen flawlessly & with finesse. We had 27 people doing a jeep tour over Imogene pass from Ouray to Telluride, and stopped at 2 secret locations for our jaw dropping perfect wedding ceremony & stunning mountainside full sit down luncheon reception. Her recommendations were perfect & the crew she coordinated for us were people that made an impression on our hearts forever. This was a day that not only WE will cherish forever, but our guests as well! There was not a single person in the crowd who wasn’t impressed with Krysta’s services & organization. Her charges are extremely reason... Read more

    Wow! Thank you so much, Christina! I can't tell you enough how much fun I had planning your wedding. Your adventurous personalities were exactly the right fit for your epic high altitude wedding. And, I am so grateful you trusted me to make that vision become a reality. I will never forget your waterfall side ceremony, butterfly release, and your guests' smiling faces when they arrived for lunch at 11,000 feet. I hope we get to meet again in the mountains!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We live in Pennsylvania but wanted to get married in the San Juan mountains around Ouray, Colorado. We were blessed to find Krysta Cossitt. She organized absolutely everything for us. The key things were the Jeep company, photographer, hair, makeup, restaurant, wedding cake, picnic on top of the mountain, champagne, and a lot of other fine details. We had a super small event: just the wedding couple, a few children and a few friends. I know she can do big or small weddings and handle all the details. I can't say enough great things about our experience. It was perfect. Highly recommend. And if you're looking for a fair price, I was more than happy with what we paid. It was a bargain. Thank you Krysta!!

    Thank you, Mark! Yours and Mary's mountain wedding was such a fun one to plan. I love when couples want to add a little adventure to their special day but still honor traditions. Spending the day in the mountains with the two of you and your family and close friends was an honor!

  • Krysta was amazing every step of the way, from the initial planning stages to executing a flawless wedding day. She is extremely flexible and equipped to handle any situation that might come up. We would not have been able to pull it off without Krysta! She provided fantastic recommendations for local vendors that we would not have known about without her knowledge of the area. The day went perfectly thanks to Krysta’s attention to detail and care!

    Thank you, Rachel! I so enjoyed working with you and Mackenzie on planning your beautiful wedding. It’s people like you that make me feel so blessed for ending up in the wedding industry. I hope our paths cross again soon!

  • We can’t thank Krysta and Elevation Weddings enough for the help with our wedding. She made our day perfect and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Her coordination with the vendors and behind the scenes work was amazing. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful wedding day!!

    I am so pleased to hear such kind words. Your weather was beautiful! I just love fall in the mountains and that clear top tent really allowed for your guests to take every bit of it in. Please reach out when you visit the area again because I'd love to see the two of you again...and your adorable pup!

  • We owe so many thanks to Elevation Weddings and Events for helping us throw an epic celebration of love in the remote mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado. Krysta is friendly, responsive, attentive to detail, and an excellent listener. My husband and I had a pretty laid back/non-traditional approach to our wedding and when explaining our vision to Krysta, we never felt judged or pressured. Krysta allowed us to stay true to ourselves while also providing excellent guidance and support. The wedding day timeline was especially helpful and Krysta had great suggestions on how to make the whole day flow. Also, because of a scheduling issue (our fault) we weren't able to do our rehearsal at the actual ceremony location, and Krysta handled it like a total champ. The day-of went off without a hitch and it was so wonderful to fully enjoy our wedding with zero stress knowing that Krysta had everything handled.

  • We originally contacted Krysta about hosting a 20 person ceremony and reception in Ouray, CO. Due to complications with my mom's health we switched to an elopement (parents only) and changed dates. I was really worried that would be an inconvenience, but Krysta was super understanding, really supportive, and great throughout that process. When it came to the actual planning, Krysta made it 100% stress free. Having someone local to Ouray coordinate our wedding meant she knew the best vendors in town for hair & makeup, nails, photography, etc. and she knew of locations to host the ceremony I wouldn't have been able to find online. Every single recommendation, from where to get our marriage license, to where I got my nails done were amazing. I wasn't stressed at all the day of because Krysta took care of everything, she made sure our parents went to the correct location, set everything up, all I did was show up and enjoy the day. Our ceremony would not have been as beautiful or stress-... Read more

    Thank you so much, Amanda. I highly enjoyed coordinating yours and Austin's elopement. It's always fun putting together an intimate wedding like you had. Watching the two of you exchange vows with the dramatic mountain range of the San Juans behind you was emotional and sweet. I wish the best for the two of you and hope to see you when you come back to visit Ouray. It holds a very special place in your hearts now!

  • I recommend Krysta's wedding coordination services without hesitation. I am so thankful I contacted her after deciding I wanted to get married in the Ouray area as I truly don't know how we would have pulled off our wedding without her help! Krysta is very familiar with all the wedding vendors in the area and every recommendation she made turned out to be wonderful - flowers, caterer, DJ, transportation service, rentals, hair/makeup, ceremony music, etc. With that being said, she was flexible and willing to explore alternatives if there was ever a need. Her online planning platform made it very easy to communicate about all the details and stay on track in terms of tracking everything that needed to get done or decided upon by a certain date. Krysta was always quick to respond and address any questions (big or small) that I had throughout the entire planning process which was much appreciated as I always felt like I was in good hands which definitely helped keep the stress of wedd...

    Thank you for your kind words, Adrienne! You and Joe were such a delight to work with. I loved getting to know you and your friends and family. I loved how you kept the invitations open to kids because all 21 of them were adorable!!! The hugs I received from one of your ring bearers and the baby holding I got to do during dinner was the best. I'm excited to stay in touch with the two of you as well. I look forward to seeing you back down in Ouray soon!

  • Hiring Krysta was hands down the best decision we made throughout the planning process. Not only is she organized, responsive, and well-connected, but she's also an incredible human who truly cares about making your day perfect. She's everything you expect from a wedding coordinator and much, much more. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

  • When my daughter and her husband decided to have their wedding at The Peaks Resort in Telluride we were informed that we were required to hire a wedding planner. At first I thought… “why.. I got this”. Obviously, I had never planned a wedding before! Holy smokes, I had no idea what goes into planning a wedding. So, I did my due diligence and checked out several wedding planners in southern Colorado, finally choosing Elevation Wedding and Events. The BEST decision I made throughout the wedding planning process. Krysta is simply amazing. She is feels like a friend from the beginning. She is beyond organized, is an expert at wedding etiquette, has a plethora of fantastic ideas and an expansive network of vendors she can refer too. Not to mention, she works her butt off… I can’t believe how much energy she had on the wedding day! My daughter and son-in-law’s wedding could not have been more perfect and we owe that all to Krysta and Elevation Weddings. Thank you, swee... Read more

  • I was just asked by a newly engaged friend if I had any advice for her in her planning process - I do, and it's simple. Hire Elevation Weddings and Events. My husband and I got married in May of this year and I had no idea where to even begin in planning our wedding – from a budgetary standpoint to guest list concerns to the timeline of when I needed to make decisions. Thankfully from the moment we began working with Krysta Cossitt I just felt at ease. Nothing seemed nearly as overwhelming when I could simply turn to one reliable person for an informed answer. When we had a wild idea, Krysta helped us make it a reality. When we needed to cut back the budget, Krysta helped us with the reality of what we could do. And believe me, we had our share of dramas! But Krysta rolled with the punches and brought us to our wedding day, and surprisingly I didn’t have any nerves. Just excitement! As everyone arrived, they commented on how calm I was. What a luxury it is to be a calm bride! There... Read more

    What kind words, Kate! Thank you very much. You and Derek are an amazing couple and I was honored to be apart of your wedding. And what an amazing wedding it was! I'll never forget the two of you saying your vows moments before a blizzard rolled in. And then hopping on a pedicab for a chilly trip down to the distillery. Not every Memorial Day weekend will be a snowy one but when it is, you'll be able to think back to your beautiful day.

  • Krysta was amazing to work with. She brought balance to my wedding planning. I felt super supportive and assisted throughout my whole planning process. She's unbelievably organized. The day of the wedding she was absolutely wonderful as well. She has such a wonderful polite energy. I felt completely at ease knowing she was handling all the background stuff for us on our wedding day. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.

    Thank you so much, Breanna. You and Ian were such a delight to work with. I absolutely love brunch weddings but your wedding took it to another level...mostly because you, Ian and your family and friends were all so wonderful! Please don’t be strangers when you are back down in the area. I would love to see you both again! Best wishes!
