What Sets Me Apart
In a sea of wedding vendors, how do you know which one is right for you? Here's what makes me different.
I believe in exceptional service.
I take on a maximum of two weddings per month, and never schedule two on the same weekend. This is by design, for a number of different reasons, including that I want to have enough energy to really make your wedding day amazing. But it also means that you will be my only client for the week of your wedding. That entire week leading up to your wedding day I’ll be able to focus on your wedding (I may still be talking and meeting with other couples, but as yours is the only wedding I’ll have for that whole week, you’ll be able to get almost all of my attention!).
I am realistic about costs.
I’d never, never tell a couple that they couldn’t have a wedding for their budget. It’s all about prioritizing and making alternate arrangements, but I’ve seen beautiful weddings at every price point. I’d also never tell a couple that they could have a wedding for X amount, while knowing that it will cost them X+. If I’m given a budget, I’ll do everything in my power to stick to it. You’ll also be heavily involved in any budget changes, if they do arise. I will work every bit of magic to get you the best wedding day possible within your means, and I am realistic with my pricing. I may not be the cheapest wedding planner out there, but I work hard to give all of my brides and grooms the best value, and the benefit of my years as a nonprofit gala planner.
I've got lots of experience.
I've been planning events of all shapes and sizes since 1998, and spent several years in a nonprofit setting. I've dealt with late and no-show vendors, meltdowns, and every kind of environmental problem. I know how to make weddings and events happen with minimum stress to you.
I’m not just a coordinator. I’m an Event Designer.
This means that I do more than just tell people what to do on your wedding day (seriously!). I can help you conceptualize your wedding style, find pieces that will fit within your overall look, feel, and budget, and tie it all together. I also own boxes and boxes of unique and vintage decor (as well as some standard pieces) to help my couples make their vision come to life without breaking the bank. And don’t forget that I design stationery, too!
My priority is you.
I often say that my clients are like my kids. I get invested in each and every job I take on. Your wedding or event is not just another wedding or event to me. It's MY wedding or event. That's why I spend so much time and energy getting it right. I don't just show up a half hour before it begins and ask you what I need to do - I'm there to meet all the vendors, take charge of all the setup, and manage the timeline that we created together. In short, I take responsibility, and I am not happy with a job unless it's a job well-done.
