Alex is a truly outstanding planner. She took us through about half of the planning process for a large wedding, helping us find vendors and iron out details--and then guided us through the process of dramatically downsizing and changing the plan entirely, from venue to catering to rentals. Alex was a planner/therapist during this change, and was incredibly understanding of my stress and indecisiveness. She also read through our communications with guests and talked us through the details of making the wedding COVID-safe. Day-of, she was truly of top of it--everything ran smoothly (or if it didn't, I never knew) and she even made sure I had a plate of apps set aside and cake to go at the end of the night.
Cannot say enough good things about Alex--I highly recommend her!

I recently photographed a Steamboat, CO wedding with Alex and her team, and I would recommend Soul Spark to anyone! Alex was easy to work with, she kept the schedule on time without being too pushy, and made sure the bride and groom felt comfortable and calm the whole day. Alex has an eye for detail and beauty- you won't regret hiring her for your event!
Kelly and Bryan Lemos, July 2019
Simply the best! We found Alex through a referral and wow was it an amazing one. We are more than satisfied. Alex, Lee, and SoulSpark events made our wedding process simple and easy. They went above and beyond with suggestions and locking in plans, vendors, and wedding events. After every meeting/discussion we felt at ease and knew we were in great hands. Then comes the wedding, and Alex and Lee are more than incredible as they had been leading up. The value they provide is amazing, and the peace of mind is extraordinary. You cannot put a price on that. Best of all, throughout the process we became more than just planner and wedding couple, we became friends.

I had the pleasure of working with Alex with Soul Spark as my wedding planner. She was incredible to work with, she has such a big heart and genuine soul. I am forever grateful to have had her apart of our journey in getting married. She made it all possible. Thank you Alex, we have so much love for you.
Deborah Foley, Mother of Bride, September 2018
'Alex and her team at Soul Spark were the best partners imaginable to help plan and manage our wedding in Steamboat. The bride and groom live in Denver and their respective families live >1000 miles from CO. This was a destination wedding for nearly 200 guests and Alex had every detail under control. She is an invaluable resource for vendors and services in Steamboat and, as others have mentioned, is unflappable in the face of Steamboat's unpredictable weather. There were a few hiccups in the lead up to the wedding: unexpected and unavoidable late catering change, difficulty coordinating with the Denver band after booking. Alex just stepped in to support and represent us. Every detail of the wedding day was flawless and stress free. As the long distance mother of the bride, I urge other MOBs and brides to hire a wedding coordinator - and hire Alex if she's available! Soul Spark Events has all the resources and the relaxed and confident attitude to make your day(s) perfect.'

'Alex was truly AMAZING! She was super helpful throughout our wedding planning process and really gave us way more assistance than we paid for on all accounts!!! She had fabulous ideas and was able to provide a ton of great items to add that special spark to make our day perfect! She made sure all the vendors were tracking so that the entire day ran smoothly...even when the wind prevented us from utilizing the gondola to get up the mountain early. Within minutes we were loading into a shuttle to head up the mountain. Alex’s attention to detail is tremendous — she didn’t miss any detail regardless of how big or small. She even provided excellent advice and weighed in with vendors to make sure we got the most out of our money!'
Lindsey and Andrew Comeau, September 2018
'All I have to say is Alex and Lee are LIFE SAVORS!! We used them as day of coordinators. Alex took care of the fine print and lee executed the day FLAWLESSLY! Lee checked in with us through out the day to make sure we were doing okay and only brought a few things to our attention (last minute decisions). It was because of them our day was nothing but magical dream. Their attention to detail and their communication skills were ideal and ultimately left us feeling comfortable and confident for the day of. I would highly recommend SoulSpark Events to host your event - you will not be disappointed!'

'We cannot say enough wonderful things about Soul Spark Events. They are the BEST! While planning our wedding I was out-of-town, stressed, and was trying to picture it all in my head without actually being there. This was no problem because Alex walked me through everything, from the big picture to the minor details! Alex set me up with vendors, found out information decorations I wanted, and was the number one contact for all parties involved. All this amazing work she did took my stresses away. When meeting with Alex she provided a fun, relaxing, environment with zero worry making us more excited than ever for our big day. As for our big day….IT WAS PERFECT! Better than we dreamed! During the day of the wedding we were fortunate enough to meet Sarah and Sal as apart of the Soul Spark Event team. Sarah and Sal were so nice, did an unbelievably great job, and it was an absolute blast working with them. We would recommend Soul Spark Events for any occasion.'
Lisa and Craig, July 2017
"My now husband and I live in Denver but decided to get married up in Steamboat. We could not have planned our wedding without Alex! She was always positive, happy and full of ideas. During the planning phase, she pointed us toward her favorite vendors and gave us lots of amazing ideas. She was honest with her advice, while at the same time pressure-free. On our wedding day, she kept the train moving and happily handled somewhat high-maintenance guests (lol). Bottom line, Alex helped us plan a unique wedding for 100 people that was truly an all day celebration and party. In fact our guests are still talking about it! I would highly recommend Alex to help any bride and groom with their big day! She rocks!"
Ashley Edge, October 2017
'I was an out-of-town bride and got behind the power curve with wedding planning and getting vendors organized. I contacted Alex and although she was already busy with another event the weekend I needed her, she managed to help me anyway! She was flexible, helpful, thorough and very focused on me and the needs of our wedding. She sent her assistant, Sal, to help with my wedding ceremony and rehearsal and it went off perfectly. Sal is sweet and easy going with a desire to make our wedding perfect! Alex sent assistants to help with set up of the wedding early to make things work for her schedule and ours. All in all, she didn't have to help me and she did anyway, and she made it easy, fun and enjoyable in a time that can be very stressful for any bride and mother of the bride. Alex and her staff are excellent planners and execute those plans wonderfully, as well as being great to work with. (And easy to communicate with even if you're far away!). Thank you, Alex and Sal!!!'

'Hiring Soul Spark Events was the number one best decision we made for our wedding. We thought we could do it all ourselves, but after even our first meeting with Alex we realized how much we actually needed her! From the first point of contact Alex was professional, responsive, and always a step ahead. SSE is local so they know and have an amazing working relationship with all of the local vendors, which helped out tremendously in the planning process. Most importantly, when the wedding day finally arrived we felt completely comfortable releasing the reigns and just enjoying our big day. Alex went above and beyond to make sure that every vendor, cupcake, and flower were in line and perfect. Everything turned out even better than we had imagined, we truly can't say enough wonderful things about Alex.'
Gina and Greg Mueller, July 2016
'Alex was an invaluable investment in our wedding planning and was absolutely essential to us pulling off a great wedding! From the moment we first made contact she was enthusiastic and excited to help, recommending the best venues and people for us work with before we even hired her! Alex is warm, positive, completely organized, competent, and available. I could not be more pleased with her help as a planner, and as a person. We live in Atlanta, and only made one trip out to Steamboat during the planning process, and I could not have asked for a better person to make the planning easy and painless. She was even kind enough to go above and beyond by bringing personal signs and decorations to make the venue extra special. We loved working with her through the entire process and I am so glad that she was a huge part of our day!'
Trent and Stacy Gillespie of Gillespie Photography, October 2016
'Alex is a wedding planner extraordinaire. As wedding photographers, we have worked at hundreds of weddings but were instantly impressed by the level of service Alex provides not only to her clients but to the vendors. Her attention to detail and service towards everyone working to make the wedding possible was above and beyond our expectations. Alex not only gets tasks done but also provides a positive energy to the day. We appreciate her hard work and will be referring her to our clients in the future.'
Jennifer Jurgovan of Rex's Catering , October 2016
Alex and her team from SoulSpark Events are incredible. Leading up to events, Alex is easy to work with - she is prompt, detail oriented, and thorough. Alex is always professional and an advocate for her client. Her knowledge and experience shows at events when she solves any unexpected issues quickly and efficiently, usually without the client even knowing. She is truly a master of her craft and I look forward to working again with her soon!
Tara McCaughran & Charles Evans, July 2015
'Our wedding was a DREAM. I didn't think I needed a planner to help plan our laid back, non traditional wedding and I am extremely grateful I had Alex on our side. Our goal was no stress, all love and tons of fun and that's exactly what we got. Alex was there for us the entire year checking in frequently, giving us great ideas, and even looking into things like a parade permit :) She handled all the vendors and created an itinerary/spreadsheet for all of the details for who was doing what and when. When the day came all we had to do was say our vows and dance. Above all Alex and Sara are lovely people and I felt like they were as much a part of our day as our best friends and family. Thank you for everything.'
Tiana and Chris Schwartzburg, August 2014
'Working with SoulSpark Events was hands down the best decision we made during wedding planning. Alex and Sarah went above and beyond to make our wedding day incredible. They helped us stay within our budget, brainstormed ideas before the wedding, and were an absolute necessity on our wedding day. They took care of all of the details, including rain contingency plans, so we could enjoy every moment with friends and family. Thank you, Alex and Sarah, for bringing our dreams to life!'
Amanda and Sebastian Bradley, July 2014
'We can not say enough good things about SoulSpark. Alex and her staff have gone above and beyond to make sure our Steamboat Springs wedding at Four Points was everything we wanted and more. I could not imagine planning my wedding without Alex by my side. Her and her staff are Extremely professional, organized, & all around were on top of everything that was going on. Alex listened to every detail and made sure it happened, not to mention she is all around a great person to work with! Thank you SoulSpark for helping making our special day one we'll always remember! I highly recommend SoulSpark to anyone planning a wedding!'
Sophie and Ted Berglund, August 2013
'Thanks to Sarah and Alex our wedding went exactly as we had envisioned it. They were a wonderful resource throughout the planning process and were there to ensure the event went perfectly on the day of the wedding. If any last minute emergencies came up, I never knew about them because Alex and Sarah took care of them all! I recommend SoulSpark events to anyone looking for attentive, responsible, and fun wedding planners!'
Katie and Don Zaback, August 2013
'Alex and Sarah did an amazing job coordinating our wedding last summer! I rolled my eyes a little when my mom insisted on a wedding planner and I chose them because they were practical and laid back, but in the end I could not have done it without them. They had great recommendations for vendors and helped make sure the vendors, who often run on "Mountain Time" remembered to call us back! They made our job of planning the wedding much easier! More importantly, they made our wedding day fun and carefree for us which allowed Don and I to enjoy the time with family and friends while they took care of all the details. Like all weddings, our wedding day logistics were pretty crazy, when I made up the schedule I had no idea how everything would get done but thanks to Alex and Sara, everything ran completely smoothly. They thought of all the details we forgot and even ran out to the grocery store for Bennedryl when one of our guests had an allergic reaction! Thanks so much!'
