How would you describe your work/style?
I am here to be your wedding BFF – no matter what package you choose! I truly love, love and will be your number-one hype girl when it comes to your wedding. I always make sure all the I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed. Leave the planning, and timeline stuff to me while you enjoy the menu tastings, scrolling Pinterest and CELEBRATING!
How long have you been in business?
Established in 2021
Do you require a minimum spend?
No; I’m happy to work with any budget!
The biggest thing I look for is making sure we are a good match to make your wedding dreams come true!
What is a typical or average spend that couples should expect for their wedding day?
Prices vary depending on how much involvement the clients want on their wedding day. Starting the month of coordination packages are around $2,200 and go up based on my involvement in the planning process.
Do you offer packages? Can you elaborate on or describe your current packages?
Yes, I offer several package options.
The Month of Coordination Package
Stepping in 6-8 weeks out, I help take on the finishing touches to help ensure everything you’ve planned is executed without a hitch. Ideal for a client that has the time and ability to plan their perfect day but wants my assistance with the final stages so they can step back and just love and relax on their perfect day.
A touch of them and a touch of me. I’ll assist with vendor referrals, venue, and vendor selection in addition to helping you review your budget and contracts. You’ll have all the perks of the ‘Month- of Coordination’ included in this package with a little extra spice. Ideally, we become the ultimate dream team!
The total package – the ‘I got you’ package I call it. I’ll still continue to work with the clients to bring their personality and dreams to life but I’ll be taking the stress out of the planning by taking care of all the ins and out’s when executing the perfect day.
Tell me more about the process of planning with clients for a wedding day.
I always start with an initial consultation – coffee, a happy hour, a mezcal margarita? You name it! From there I develop a proposal custom to you and what you’re looking for on your wedding day. No matter what your package I always provide a detailed timeline and checklist for my clients to reference throughout the planning process. It’s my job no matter what to make this process more enjoyable and make sure you are totally set up for success!
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love being a part of bringing their dreams and wishes to life. Call it cheesy…but I love hearing about your one-of-a-kind love stories. And getting to know amazingly cool people who are madly in love! One of my favourite parts is watching my client’s reactions when they first see their ceremony and reception space. I love being able to bring a Pinterest board, a bubble thought, and most importantly your dreams to life!
What would you like clients to know about the planning process for their wedding day?
One of my #1 goals is to have you feel completely stress-free not only the day – but the weeks leading up to your wedding. We all know some of the best things in life can come and go so fast – this includes your wedding day. I want you to be able to enjoy every minute with your partner, your families, and your friends who have come to celebrate with you. I am the full liaison between vendors and venues. To make sure everyone is executing exactly the way you have imagined. I am the clients’ eyes and ears on the day of the wedding. From setup, takedown and everything in between I’ve totally got you covered!
