This is the package for those, newly engaged without a clue on where to start.
Take heart… it is the very best time to hire a wedding planner.
Although this is the most expensive of the packages on offer, it most often saves my clients the greatest amount of money in the long run.
Here’s how it works..
We meet and talk about the dream…. What you would want if money and other things were no object at all.. Then, I price the wedding out for you so you know what you are potentially looking at. If it’s financially in line with what you had thought - great - and if not, I will walk you through a realistic modification of your dream that is mindful of your budget.
If you like what you hear - you hire me.. I take a retainer of $1000 and short list a few of my top venue choices for you. I generally accompany you to those tours and I have quotes generated that are transparent and will give you are very clear picture of the true cost of each location under consideration. Together, we will discuss your favorites and available dates and hopefully, you will have a venue and date within a very short time frame. (on average 2-3 weeks)
As I am the one bringing you to the venue, I am often in a great position to request preferred pricing or extras at this early stage. I have had many a client save their entire fee to me with this single transaction. Even when this is not the case, it will save you a lot of time and allow you to proceed with a great degree of confidence in the location you have selected.
From there - the inclusions are about the same as in the Gold, however an additional 6 in person hours are available to you for extra meetings should you find you need extra assistance with anything along the way.

Wedding Un-Planning - rates vary
It’s the thing that no one in the wedding industry ever likes to say aloud - yet sometimes, you start to plan and life throws you a curve ball or you realize that you are just not ready.
So, how on earth do you stop the train once it’s left the station? I will tell you that you are very brave... it takes a lot of courage to know when the person that you love, the one that you may have promised to love forever is just not the one. It’s hard.. Really, really hard… so what do you do and how do you gracefully unravel your plans?
Well - you sit down and when you are ready - send me an email and tell me your story.
