an attitude of "whatever it takes"

is impossible to stop

hey babe!

I'm Amber, Founder and Coordinator at Out West Events.  Originally from the great state of Ohio, I started my adventure in Colorado almost five years ago and could not be happier with my new home.

Planning events has been my jam for years.  

 

The short and sweet version of my background looks a little like this...

  • Way back in the day before I realized I could make my passion a career - I planned what still feels like a billion sorority sisterhoods, socials, and philanthropy events. 

  • Then, I went to grad school for Student Affairs in Higher Education and  started a career in student, family, and alumni programming; a fancy way of saying I was an event planner for higher education institutions.

  • Since then, I've planned a number of events for a number of different universities and colleges.  From week-long new student orientations for every single freshman on campus, to four-day Family Weekend events of 4,000 guests, to small fundraising dinners... you name it, ya girl has planned it.  

and I freakin' live for it all!

so, why weddings?

I found my true calling in weddings after planning my own.  It was the "sky is the limit" (as long as it's within the budget) mentality that sparked the creative fire in me I'd been yearning for so long.  

Combine that creative freedom and my strange addiction to spreadsheets, organization, and managing details... and the rest is history.  

Nothing beats meeting couples like you and learning about their sweet love stories.  Working with y'all to create the perfect image of your relationship into one beautifully memorable day of celebration is the cherry on top of it all.

So, let's get together and chat about how we can make your day the MOST perfect day.  I can't wait to work with you!

just a few of my favorite things...

My own personal sour patch kid, disguised as a hound dog.  First he's sour (and totally out of control), then he's sweet.

As an Ohio gal, I am living the DREAM with the mountains in my backyard, year-round sunshine, green chili, low humidity, and fall hikes like this one.

One of my favorite trips was a surprise vacation a few years back; didn't know where I was headed until I arrived at the airport! 

Let's work together and create your best day ever!
