We’ll also be available to move around décor and floral arrangements throughout the night to ensure everything you’ve spent money on gets it’s maximum use.

A lot of brides (and budgets!) love the DIY look, but struggle with figuring out how to make it all come together on the day of. A wedding planner can help you narrow down all your ideas to realistic projects and will be there on the day of to help set everything up. Instead of asking your family and friends to help out with the little details, let them relax and enjoy the day by your side while we take care of the rest!

A planner will assure that vendors adhere to your vision and style and will make sure all decisions lead to a stunning outcome. You wont have to worry about having any awkward conversations, confrontations, or making blind decisions—phew! Leave that up to us!
+ access to the BEST in the industry
In my years as a planner, I have worked with a ton of different vendors and can recommend plenty of industry professionals that will bring your unique vision to life! It can save a lot of time and stress when you can rest assured your vendors are professional, great people that are committed to executing a beautiful day.
+ you won’t lose sight of the end goal
Planning an epic party for any group over 20 people is a daunting task. The details add up, especially at the end, and can make you wonder why you’re getting married in the first place! The whole reason you’re getting married is because you love each other, right?! Unfortunately, sometimes the stress of planning a wedding can make couples temporarily lose sight of the end goal, a happy marriage! When you entrust a wedding planner with all the nitty-gritty details of your day, you and your partner are able to spend more time and energy on the parts of the day that really matter—love, family and friends, and hopes for the future together.
YAAS! Thank you Kellyne!
