Step 1: Inquiry & Free Consult
Once you inquire we schedule a 30 minute free consult with you!
I want to make sure we are a fabulous fit and can do everything your heart desires before we commit to each other! I get to know your loves and desires, and in the end make sure your ideal budget aligns with your dreams! After our initial consult, I will send over a brochure for you to make your selection of what services you need. After your selections are made, a proposal will be created and sent to you along with the contract. Once this is signed and your retainer is paid we can get this party started!
Step 2: Planning & Design Meetings
Our standard planning process includes 3 meetings!
YOU ALSO GET ACCESS TO OUR CLOUD BASED CLIENT PORTAL!

THE DESIGN STUDIO
Now, my favorite part the Design Studio! It's a wedding specific Pinterest built right into your personalized planning site! This is where we define the vision for your event. The Design Studio gives you the tools to:
Browse tons of real wedding and editorial shoot inspiration
Create Style Guides (i.e. "Boards" in Pinterest lingo)
Create color palettes
Share interactive links to your boards
Make comments on each picture
Have conversations with your planner/designer directly within the boards themselves!
Sharing your boards and color palettes with your creative vendors helps to keep everyone on the same page to ensure the end result is everything you dreamed!
Make it Happen Meeting
We sit down and chat about the main vendors of the day such as your venue, photographer, caterer, DJ, rentals, etc. We make sure that the big budget eaters are out of the way. We will also begin discussing the timeline, staffing, and logistics to make sure your day goes as swimmingly as possible!
Make it Pretty Meeting
This is my favorite part! If possible, we do a walk through at your venue and talk about the flowers, stationery, colors, layout, and overall look. We make sure all of the little details are something you will love! I also give you a couple of questionnaires to fill out before your final meeting that help us pull all of those lose ends together.
* You will receive a detail questionnaire and vendor information questionnaire to fill out so we can finalize everything!
Wrap Up Meeting
We are in the home stretch. Let's pull this shindig together! We talk about all of those dirty details, finalize your layout and timeline, and go over the questionnaires. Then, I will distribute the info to my team and the other vendors to make sure we are all on the same page!
Step 3: Event Production
Let’s bring your event to life!
An hour is included for your rehearsal, which is all we need once we get started. We knock out how your ceremony will go, who will stand where, and who walks with who down the aisle. Now everyone knows exactly what to do the next day!
We are here for the long haul! You get up to 12 hours of a wedding day manager, which is normally plenty of time. You also get an assistant. We will talk about your day and make sure that is enough time and people to ensure the day will be fabulous!
