With Full Planning, I work with my couples through every step of the planning process; from providing preferred and proven resources, managing a budget, locating the right venue, hiring vendors, suggesting ways to eliminate unnecessary stress, acting as an etiquette coach, helping with the overall timeline as well as a schedule of events for the month, week and day leading up to the wedding. It’s handling all the loose ends and overseeing all things logistics.
What exactly is Wedding Design? I get this question often. If wedding planning is the "construction" of a wedding, design is the landscape and the interior decoration. Wedding design focuses on the elements that are seen. Together, we talk about their style and how they envision their day: Is it intimate and romantic? Large and rustic? Formal and elegant? Taking all this into account, next we work through all a wedding's details and how each of these will fit into the overall event. I help refine the ideas to create their vision. The design includes attire, invitation suites and stationery, flowers (floral arrangements are included as part of this service selection), colors, textures, table settings, linen selection, ceremony décor and rentals, signage, the list goes on… It’s a matter of fine-tuning all the pieces and create the wedding of a couple’s dreams.

Partial Planning & Day of Planning
Some couples look forward to taking on the majority of the planning for their wedding. Partial planning or Day of Planning is a perfect compliment to this. With Partial Planning, I'll share any desired direction for lining up vendors, planning tools, and help with bringing their vision together. About a month prior to the wedding, we start to talk about the overall wedding plan, fill in any gaps and I step in with primary vendor communication. I am onsite for the entire wedding: rehearsal and set up to clean up.
"Day of" Planning includes help with running the rehearsal and eight hours of coordination the day of the wedding.
One of my favorite wedding elements is the flowers and greenery. They account for creating a stunning impression and making statement. I strive to create bouquets and arrangements that showcase the season by using local farm-sourced flowers, vines, branches, and fruit for the arrangements. My style is organic, luxe, soft, sometimes imperfect, but incorporated in a way that brings out their natural element. I provide all vases and vessels for each floral arrangement from my personal collection of antiques and favorite items.
