From the first meeting to the last dance, our Full Wedding Planning and Design package is for the couple who would rather enjoy their engagement than spend it planning. It begins with an in-depth consultation to discuss your style and vision for your wedding. From there, we create a comprehensive plan for curating what will be an exceptionally beautiful and memorable day. After the initial planning stages, we begin making appointments, convenient to your schedule, with venues, photographers, musicians, floral/décor designers, custom stationers and more. We accompany you to local vendor meetings, site visits, tastings and final walk-through. Additionally, we review contracts and ensure that you are comfortable with and understand all the details before you sign. On the day of your wedding, we are there to ensure that you are able to relax and revel in the beauty of the day and the love of family and friends that surrounds you. Here are some of the elements included in our Our Full Planning Package….
