Our planning process

What's included:

There isn’t much I don’t do for my Wedding Planning clients. Each couple is unique, and so is each wedding, so our work together may include any or all of the following:

  • Budget creation and management
  • Venue recommendations, walk-throughs and contract review
  • Vendor recommendations, communication and management prior to and on wedding day
  • Event design, including guidance on florals, stationery and rentals
  • Custom, comprehensive timeline creation down to the minute
  • Guest management: assistance with seating, meals and more
  • Full event inventory
  • Lead the rehearsal (or co-lead with your officiant) 
  • 10 hours of event management 
  • Supervision of wedding day set-up and strike 

Wedding Planning is a customized experience: the investment depends on the level of service, the scope of your wedding plans and more. For couples seeking a high touch and streamlined approach, our full service offering may be the right fit. Events evolve over time and we understand that! Our planning services are compensated on a percentage basis of the overall scope of the event. 

Have you already made a lot of the big decisions and are now looking for someone to oversee the details leading up to and throughout your wedding day? Someone to lead your already star-studded team of wedding professionals?

 Our wedding management services could be just what you need… 


You can hire a wedding planner at any point during the planning process, but the ideal time is right after your engagement. Many of the crucial wedding planning decisions are made then (things like what your budget is and what venue you’ll get married at) and it’s my job to help you make those tough early choices. The sooner you hire a wedding planner, the easier and more stress-free your wedding planning experience will be.

Not at all. I love working with destination wedding couples who choose to celebrate their love in the Nation’s Capital. I think you’ll find having a wedding planner is crucial when planning a destination wedding because I will have an innate understanding of Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC that you may not.

Absolutely! I’d say about 60% of the couples who inquire with me have a multicultural aspect to their day. I think it’s extremely important to honor that because, as your wedding planner, my main focus is helping you create a wedding day that tells your story authentically. Your ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and culture are a huge part of that story, and I’ll work closely with you to make sure they’re incorporated in the planning.

A Discovery Call is like a first date, minus the awkwardness. I want to hear your love story, what your dream is for your wedding day, your go-to cocktail, and so many more things about your life. You’ll get to ask me questions, too. We’ll talk through the wedding planning process I follow and the tools I use, and I’ll also tell you a bit about myself (I’m a cat mom, love yoga and have an aversion to cheese, for starters). There is absolutely no pressure to sign with me on the phone; instead, I’ll follow up with a proposal that reiterates what we talked about, and (fingers crossed!) you’ll sign and we can begin our work together.
