Vanessa R. Adam, owner of V Adam Event Planning, has spent the last 13 years planning and producing unforgettable weddings and events in Aspen, Colorado. Unparalleled creativity, a passion for excellence and attention to detail are just part of what I bring to every event that I produce. I enjoy the diverse atmosphere of planning Aspen events ranging from music to food to weddings – all while set in the beautiful backdrop of the Roaring Fork Valley. Eager to follow my passion, I opened V Adam Event Planning to offer local and destination clients the ultimate boutique wedding and event planning services. V Adam Event Planning brings design coordination, organization, impeccable taste and flawless execution to every event. Let us bring creativity, passion, and our superb reputation to your event.

Honing 15 years of planning event and wedding details from small to large scale, I have learned no event is too small to make it spectacular. Regardless of budget or size, I thrive on capturing a couple’s vision and customizing every event in a seamless fashion. Through my extensive experience and attention to detail, I take a modern approach to creating and producing flawless celebrations. I keep an up-to-date pulse on emerging wedding trends, while I work with the highest quality vendors – at every price point. Clients have mentioned my high energy and sophisticated personality shine through in our relationships, while offering an individual and tailored approach to every event. I take pride in individually meeting clients’ desires, budgets, and dreams to create an extraordinary event.

Embracing the outdoor lifestyle, small town charm, and Colorado bluebird days, my love for Aspen is evident in my lifestyle. Having a profound passion for Aspen’s various cultural, music, and art events, I’m always in the know of the happenings around town. Whether I’m having a picnic at the Aspen Music Festival, enjoying the annual Food & Wine Festival, or simply enjoying a ski day on Aspen Mountain, I’m constantly striving to take advantage of all that Aspen has to offer.  Making your Aspen dream wedding or event come true is my goal.

When I’m not planning your ultimate wedding weekend or celebration, I enjoy spending time outside with my family.  My husband, Karl and I have a 4.5 year old son, Taylor and 2 year old daughter, Sydney.  I feel blessed to be living and working in one of the most beautiful playgrounds in the world.  I would be honored to learn about your dream vision and bring it to life together.

“Vanessa did an incredible job making our wedding day beautiful and memorable. She guided us every step of the way. She helped us create our dream vision, which she then seamlessly made a reality, enabling us to relax and enjoy every second of our wedding day. She is organized, efficient, flexible, patient, and kind. Vanessa truly understands her clients, and the love and passion she possesses for her work comes through in every element of the wedding planning process. It was a joy to work with Vanessa; I can’t imagine planning our wedding without her!” Julia & Nate
