We have kids and two full time jobs and we didn’t have a lot of time to devote to wedding planning - so hiring Candi was an easy decision for us. She was excellent at making things seamless for us - dealing with vendors, vetting bands and caterers, getting contracts executed, acting as go between for countless little requests of vendors, keeping us organized and on track and away from busy work. Like all weddings, ours went through multiple “revisions” as we thought about what was really important to us and what we hoped for on the day itself. Through each revision, update, and re-work Candi was there to provide ideas, recommendations, and keep us grounded, on-time and and within budget. She even designed some amazing invitations for us at very little cost. On the day of the wedding she was tireless in making sure that everything pulled together and we had nothing to do but just enjoy ourselves - it’s a testament to her work that even though we had an outdoor ceremony, a “parade” to the reception, 2 bands, 6 kids with wedding roles and a multitude of things that could’ve gone wrong - nothing did. She did an excellent job and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding planner.

Full planning

This package covers everything from start to finish, the whole shebang! You'll get all of the benefits of wedding day of coordination and our wedding design package along with assistance from day one of planning. Here's what's included: 

Venue Visits

Step #1 to planning is solidifying when and where the wedding will take place. It's one of the first major steps, and we're here to make it a little less daunting. We'll suggest venues that fit your style, wedding guest size, and price point, and then visit together until we find the perfect one. 

Planning Timeline

Once we have the venue booked and date set, we'll develop a planning timeline for booking all of your other vendors. We'll ensure things stay on track and that planning is simple and easy. 

Budget Development

We'll have you prioritize what's most important to you on your wedding day, and then develop a budget that matches that list. We'll allocate your spending so your money is going towards the vendors that are most important to you. We'll also track your deposits, spending, and final payments. 

Vendor Recommendations

We'll suggest our favorite vendors that we know do a fantastic job, and that match your wedding style and personality. 

Vendor Meetings

We'll set up meetings with the vendors that interest you most to learn more about their pricing, packages, and style. 

Contract Management

Once you've selected each vendor, we'll get the ball rolling on the contracts, review them with you, and ensure they're signed and returned on time with the necessary deposits.
