Below are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about wedding planners and my services!
It was nearing the end of my homeschooling career with my children. I have always enjoyed theme parties and all the pieces to make that happen. I enjoy decor and creating beautiful spaces, designing and making invitations, scrapbooking or preserving memories, fashion, beautifully decorated tables and how they all come together for a magical, joyful and kinetic event. My daughters' ballroom dance instructor sent me to a meeting for ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants) to see if ABC would be a good fit for his business. That is where I learned about being a wedding planner as a career. It seemed to incorporate many aspects that I enjoyed. I LOVE IT!
I collaborate with many different event professionals. It is important for me as a planner to have relationships with many different industry categories. It is helpful to pair up my clients with a professional that not only fits their budget but also their personality and character.
My preference is to have at least a four-week lead time depending on the size and scope of the event.
Yes! I can and do offer Virtual Consultations. We can meet via Zoom or FB Messenger video chat. I am utilizing a system called Honeybook that allows for messaging and files to be shared and kept in one place for me, the client and hired wedding professionals to access and share easily.
For streaming services of weddings or gatherings, I have options and relations with vendors that specialize in this service to provide good quality streaming service. They will come in with the microphones, lighting, cameras, strong internet connection and the knowledge to quickly troubleshoot and redirect if needed.
There are four packages that I offer as starting points. During our consultation or in the beginning stage of planning I might suggest adding in a service that I think will work for what you are needing. Even though I have packages to guide our discussion, we can alter them if needed for your specific needs.
Not exactly. I have assigned amounts to my packages that include a beginning dollar amount for a set number of hours. I keep a time log and notify you where we stand with the hours and offer a discounted hourly rate as an add on if we need. There is an overtime charge if we haven’t pre-agreed on additional hours from the package.
No, I can accommodate small intimate weddings/events along with large wedding/events. No matter the size it will be a special wedding/event that can include cultural touches or traditions and allow you and your family to enjoy the wedding/event as though you are a guest. You, your family and friends will have the space and time to be fully present at your wedding/event.

Do my best to remain empathetic and caring. Give and command respect. Setting boundaries. Remind those in the bridal party to be empathetic but help all parties to communicate effectively and politely
Again, it depends on the size and scope of the event and the package that you have hired me to complete for you. Typically, I will only schedule one event per day. Just as I want you to be fully present for your special day, I want to be fully present for your special day.
It is my preference that my clients sign contracts with the event professionals that are providing service or product for their wedding/event. I will provide referrals to event professionals that you need for your day. Once you have decided which professional you will be using and have signed their contract, I will be in attendance for consultations and all communication will run through me.
I can't pick just one event because there have been many. The ones I enjoy the most tend to have a strong and happy backstory, strong family ties, enjoy creating and capturing memories and like to include their culture and family traditions.
No, I am able and very willing to travel. There would be travel charges to cover transportation, time away and food.
Yes, I do. Here are a couple;
That would depend on the changes and the amount of time prior to the event. These are big decisions and include spending of money which can be scary. I ask and listen for why things are changing. Once the contract has been signed, there would be a fee charged for each change
