Coordination

Ceremony Coordination and Wedding Day Coordination are perfect for couples that are feeling like they're missing something while planning their wedding day. Whether it's who will set up your reception space while you're getting your hair and makeup done, or who will make sure your limo is stationed perfectly outside your ceremony for your Grand Exit, our team will have it covered!

Planning

Basic Wedding Planning and Full Wedding Planning are perfect for couples who are still in school, have a demanding full time job, or live out of state. They're also perfect for couples who know they want to make their wedding day a day that no one will forget. Every detail will be discussed - your timeline, vendors, paper suite, decor decisions, and more. All while making sure you enjoy the process!
