Founder and Dreamer
Hi, I'm Maréa!
Being raised in Colorado Springs, I fell in love with the mountains at an early age. I love anything that involves the outdoors- hiking, camping, rock climbing, and getting lost in the woods. I’m a swing dancer, a thrill-seeker, and a wanderlust soul. But when I'm not backpacking across New Zealand, snorkeling a reef in the Philippines, or snuggling my pup-child Ginger, one of my favorite things to be doing is designing fabulous love-celebrations.
I can't even tell you when I first fell in love with the magic of weddings- it just seems to be something that's stuck with me from a very young age. I first started planning weddings for my friends by a random twist of fate when I was 19, and I´ve been doing it ever since. I love people, romance, flowers, dancing, creating joy, making a difference, and caring for the planet, so being a sustainable wedding planner is basically a dream come true. For me, wedding planning is about so much more than decorating some pews and making sure vendors stick to the schedule- it´s about helping you believe that whatever wild, outlandish, unconventional ideas you’ve imagined can be brought to life, and you really can have the wedding of your dreams.
But enough about me! It's you we’re really here for. Let's grab some coffee so you can tell me all about your love story, and how you want to celebrate it! Drinks are on me!
Hi folks, Birdie here!
I joined the Dream Catcher team in August of 2021. I’m a Colorado native, born and raised in Colorado Springs, and when I’m not planning weddings, you can find me cuddling my kitten, Toast, or slingin' lattes at Humble Coffee.
Since starting work in the service industry 5 years ago, I’ve discovered that there are two things essential to my personal sense of fulfillment and success: serving others, and being part of a community. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a passion for service, and done everything I could to serve those around me well. I never imagined that I’d be able to translate that passion into something I could support myself with, until I started working in coffee, and witnessed how even something as simple as giving someone a smile with their latte can have a monumental impact. I’ve always considered it an honor that someone would trust me with 10 minutes of their morning, let alone one of the most significant moments of their lives, which is why I was thrilled when Maréa invited me to become a part of the Dream Catcher team.
Maréa founded Dream Catcher with the goal of turning dreams into reality, and by giving me the opportunity to take part in that, as well as to join the amazing community of sustainability-minded wedding professionals she’s worked to bring together, she’s absolutely done that for me.
I’m so honored to be a part of the Dream Catcher team. There's nothing quite like the joy of helping couples realize their grandest wedding visions!
Hello Dreamers! My name is Danielle and becoming a part of Dream Catcher Weddings is fulfilling a lifelong dream to find a job that I am passionate about and allows me to express my creativity. I am a perfect mix of dreamer and doer. I love to think outside the box and yet structure and process (let's not forget list-making) are my jam. Art is my way to express, my way to decompress, and my way to show love and appreciation. I love to paint, draw, design, craft and build. When I am not creating, I love being active. Hiking, kayaking, sports of all kinds are just a few of the activities my family and I enjoy doing.
I am originally from Pennsylvania/New Jersey, and moved to Colorado in 2021 to follow my heart to the mountains. I am married to the love of my life, and together with our two devastatingly handsome, strong-willed, smart, silly boys, we hope to travel the world and experience all the beauty this earth has to offer. This is why it is so important to take care of the amazing planet that gives us so much.
Dream Catcher Weddings melded all of my passions into one incredible job! Weddings are the ultimate expression of the love between two people, and I love to be the one to help capture that in a physical form. I love meeting each couple and learning their story, and dreaming up a vision that encapsulates their love. It is so rewarding to take my passion for creativity and art to help give couples the wedding of their dreams. Not only are we creating a fairytale moment, but we are doing it while helping to promote better choices for the planet. I am so grateful to be working a job where love, the earth, and creativity are the basis of every single day.
Hi loves, I’m Leo!
Hailing originally from the South, I have lived all over the US and South America. I love to travel and my work has taken me across the world and back. I settled in Colorado Springs after falling in love with the mountains and the community kept here. I enjoy music, theatre, cooking, and exploring new places for new adventures. That is why I am also passionate about being environmentally conscious - so that new adventures are always around the corner.
I’m also a classically trained singer, dancer, and acting professional who has worked for Norwegian Cruise lines, Dollywood, and professional tours and theatres across the US and Europe. In fact, when not running weddings, I work as a wedding singer and (separately) as a singing-bartender downtown in the Springs. If you’re looking for a special song on your wedding day or need to hear a familiar tune to calm the nerves, I’m your guy.
I moved to Colorado at the end of 2020, and was swept up by this Dream Team just last year. Becoming a part of Dream Catcher Weddings has allowed me to express my dedication to celebration and this planet. To me, weddings are physical manifestations of love that connects, binds, and dedicates you to each other, bridging the gap between your families and loved ones. Helping produce these magical moments is what I am passionate about. Whether you need a curl pinned, tie tied, or just someone to hold your hand and remind you to breathe, I’m dedicated to making sure that your fairy-tale day has a happy ending. Being apart of a sustainably conscious company that allows me to do that is the cherry on top.
Joining Dream Catcher Wedding has been a gratifying experience for me. I’m so grateful to be the fairy-godfather for your special day while helping keep leaves green and the air clean. So loves, what wishes are we granting today?
Social Media Sorceress
Hello to the DCW community!
My name is Sarah and becoming part of The Dream Team has been in the making for quite some time. I couldn't be happier! Since starting in the wedding industry back in 2014, I have played the role of every position you can think of, but found my love and skill in planning. Since moving to Colorado, I have worked countless weddings as a planner + coordinator and recently started transitioning to a more "behind the scenes" role as a social media manager. This transition has allowed me to still work in the industry I love so well, but also make time for myself, my relationship, and the things that this life brings. Dream Catcher Weddings stands for the values that I, too, strive to implement in my own personal life each day; to work for and be in community with like-minded humans is something I will always value.
Just a little bit about me, I am originally from Washington State, specifically a little island in the Puget Sound and moved to Colorado in 2019 after graduating from University in Southern California. I met Maréa while searching for a wedding planner for my own day of love, and during our coffee date I had a little feeling that we would be in each other's life for the foreseeable future. I am now married and have been in partnership with my stunning husband since 2016, together we have the sweetest pup, Nala. If I am not working weddings or making our presence known on social media, you can find me traveling with my love and seeing what our beautiful Mother Earth has to show off. I also enjoy our garden, taking care of our fresh produce/ lavender, and spending as much time as possible outside in the warmer months.
Cheers! to what the future has in store for Dream Catcher Weddings and our team of amazing humans. We hope that each couple we work with brings us one step closer to serving not only Colorado to the best of our ability, but our beautiful planet, as well.
