So You’re Planning Your Wedding?
Nothing pulls at our hearts more than seeing a love story between two people come together with their family and friends. It is truly our joy for love stories, families, celebrations, and creative details that inspire us to do what we do.
Your wedding celebration does not have to be stressful or overwhelming. We believe that everyone deserves a wedding that distinctly shares their unique story – simple and chic or luxurious and elaborate – we are here to make it a reality. It’s our passion to make every moment and sweet detail count so you can relax and enjoy.
“You have made the process of wedding planning joyful and virtually stress free and we are forever grateful!”

This service includes a two-hour planning session during which we can answer your wedding planning questions, recommend vendors, discuss budgeting, and more. You will also receive our custom wedding planning guide which contains a task list of everything to consider and complete while planning your event, helpful tools on all aspect to guide your planning and much more.

You are wondering how this kind investment will benefit my wedding?
Here are just a few of the benefits you will get when working with us…
The average wedding takes couples 200+ hours to plan…yes, you heard me right. As your wedding planner, we will take the bulk of planning off of your plate, making your engagement period so much less stressful.
Help you stay within budget.
How would you know what things actually cost? You’ve never put together a wedding before. As a planner, we will create a detailed budget and keep you on track to staying within your budget.
Save money. No P.W.S.D. (Post Wedding Stress Disorder) here!
We have developed great relationships with area wedding vendors. We are oftentimes able to negotiate pricing due to the amount of business we give our vendors.
Give valuable advice.
As a wedding planner, we know the ins and outs of the wedding industry. We know exactly which wedding venues can accommodate your wedding size, fit within your budget, yet also give you the atmosphere you want. We know which florist can create the perfect floral backdrop for your wedding ceremony, or which wedding DJ can keep your guests dancing all night long.
Oftentimes a bride and groom find that planning a wedding can create tension between them and their families. We know how to deal with these situations and will act as the middle person to help avoid conflicts.
Creates a wedding day schedule and flow for the day.
We confirm all of your vendors setup times and details before your wedding. We create your reception room setup diagram and create a detailed timeline for your entire wedding day. We will handle and organize all of these tasks and more prior to your wedding.
Point of contact on your wedding day.
Don’t want your caterer to call you the morning of your wedding asking questions about setup? Or your officiant coming to you for his final check payment right before your wedding ceremony begins? As your wedding planner, we will be the point of contact for all vendors on your wedding day so you can sit back and enjoy your special day.
Handles wedding day “fires.”
Trust us on this, something always goes wrong at each wedding. Whether it is something big or small, we are well trained in putting out these “fires” so that you and your guests don’t even know they happened.
This all sound perfect! So what do I do next…
Your next step is to call or email us to set up a time to meet and chat about your wedding day. It is totally free! It will give us a chance to meet and discuss your vision and get to know each other a bit.
