Planning with your vision and my experience with logistics and events
My approach: to empower the couple to discover the kind of wedding that they want.
A few things you should know
about how I plan weddings:
Your wedding, your vision
I am here to support your ideas and help you find ways to make your wedding day the experience you imagine.
Inclusion and Love
I am a strong believer in the importance of diversity of all types. I have supported people from all backgrounds in their journey towards a lifetime of love together.
Short Engagements – Quick Turnaround
I specialize in planning weddings in a very short amount of time. Its a wonderful challenge and you’ll receive no judgement from me about your timelines!
Plan from anywhere, to anywhere
There are no geographic limitations. I’m comfortable working remotely for the planning process and have traveled extensively domestically and abroad.
Pricing & Planning Needs
Each wedding is unique and we adjust our pricing to fit your needs.
Planning packages start at $3,250. We would discuss your needs at our initial consultation to create a scope of work to determine your costs and help keep you within budget.
You are doing most of the work yourself, but need an expert to guide you, provide resources, and be there on the day of the event to carry out your dream!
You know what you want, you just don’t have the time or expertise to execute the details and need someone to take care of most of it for you.
Short planning timeframe? Need help with something specific? I love being creative!
I’m not sure what kind of help I need…can I still reach out?
Absolutely! Part of my job is helping you determine your needs.
Do you plan events anywhere?
I am based out of Chicago but I love planning all over and can easily plan remotely.
Are you insured?
What budgets do most of your clients have?
I would say that most of my clients range between $20,000-$200,000. But I don’t place limits in either direction.
Do you have agreements with other vendors?
I do not take commission from other vendors for recommendations. I only recommend people I think would be a good fit for your wedding.
My venue provides a venue coordinator. Do I still need a planner?
Yes. Most people don’t realize that the venue coordinator is there to see to the best interests of the venue. You need someone to be totally focused on your details, coordinating with other vendors, and problem-solving if something comes up.
Are you a preferred planner at any venues?
I am currently listed as a preferred planner at The Newberry Library, Salvatore’s, and The National Hellenic Museum, all in Chicago. However, I have worked at dozens of venues over the years and truly believe that a good planner can manage anywhere.
