Welcome to the blog! I’m Emily, founder and creative director of Bella Design & Planning, an event design and production studio located in Breckenridge, Colorado. I have been planning weddings and events across the country and around the world since 1997, and founded Bella Design & Planning in 2002 to offer my services to clients who love the Rocky Mountains as much as I do. I have a passion for details, adore the challenge of thinking outside of the box and getting truly creative with our clients, and truly love love in all of its forms.
Things I love: A job well done, discussing politics with my dad, reading historical fiction, listening to my children giggle, having martinis with my amazing girlfriends, trail running, Billy Collins poetry, simply being with my mom in any capacity, walking the streets of New York City, San Francisco, Rome and Paris, Cakebread chardonnay, taking a full afternoon without interruption to prepare a dinner party, world music, John Coltrane, a bud vase of fresh flowers on my desk, telling stories with my huge family, listening to Neil Young around a campfire, going to concerts at Red Rocks, traveling to new places and always visiting at least one art gallery, going to the theatre (Broadway musicals are my favorite!), being near a river and thinking, naps, and spending time with my husband.
