Full Service
Wedding Planner & Designer Package

This package is best for couples that have not yet done serious planning for their wedding, beyond choosing a date and potentially a venue. This package is comprehensive, and with this selection I assume responsibility for all elements of your wedding. You can be very involved in the process with me, or I can handle all details independently. It’s up to you! Typically this package begins at least one year prior to the wedding, but I'm always happy to work with clients on a shorter timeline. Full service planning can include the following:



  • Pre-Wedding Consultations: We will meet to discuss your vision, requirements, and basic needs before we launch into planning your ideal wedding. We will also develop a style for your wedding based on your personal taste.

  • Custom design and décor plan for the event space.

  • Budget Management: I will offer budget guidance and keep track of all projected and actual expenses throughout the planning process.

  • Vendor Recommendations and Booking: You'll receive a list of the vendors I recommend and we will find vendors together that fit your style and budget. I will also schedule vendor meetings and negotiate contracts.

  • Invitation Designer Recommendations

  • RSVP and Seating Assignment Coordination

  • Event Design Services: wedding layout design, specialized equipment rental selection, comprehensive design coordination

  • Attend all meetings with vendors and service providers, including your wedding tasting.
