Let’s get this party started…
Weddings are about love and partnership. Planning your wedding is one building block of your future together. We encourage couples to have the important conversations. Use your wedding planning to discuss finances, career goals, and family in addition to the visual elements, catering choices, and traditions. Wedding planning should not be relegated to one partner due to gender or other social constructs. It should be a process that allows each partner’s strengths and interests to shine!

FàD FAQ Still have questions?
On this website, I give ranges for events and services. I want to be as transparent as possible but every event is different. Some metrics that determine price are the size of your guest list, the complexity of your designs ideas, the length of your event, and whether additional staff or crew members are needed.
Nope. I will make suggestions and recommend you to amazing event partners, but even in my full wedding package, I do not contract with or pay the vendors on your behalf.
Nope, and here is why. When your venue says they want you to book a “Day-of” Coordinator, they mean they want you to have a professional whose job it is to work with all your event partners to make sure the day goes smoothly. No Coordinator worth their salt will ever agree to “just show up on the day.” The moniker of “Day-of” Coordinator is misleading, because in reality the job can not be done properly if all you do is show up for a few hours on the day. I work with you and your event partners and vendors from the moment you book to make sure everyone is on the same page and your event goes according to plan! Please refer to my services to learn more about what Wedding Coordination entails!
I don’t always say no to “friendors” or friends who offer to work your wedding for a free or reduced rate, but I will caution you against them for a variety of reasons ranging from food poisoning, wilted flowers, undelivered photos, and broken friendships.
I highly value the concept of community in wedding planning. I love when families and friends come together to create an unforgettable event for a couple. But if you are just trying to save a buck, please think carefully about your options before just going with a friend or family member in place of a seasoned wedding professional.
Yes, Floral Design can be added to Wedding Coordination or Full Wedding Planning. I am happy to arrange flowers you have ordered in bulk, or create a full floral package for your event.
Absolutely! Depending on the distance, we may need to work out some kind of compensation for my travel expenses, but I love to travel and am happy to go amazing new places to be a part of your wedding!
