How long have you been in the business?

What is your philosophy on a wedding planners role in helping brides and grooms plan their wedding?

I like to think of the planners role is to be personable and truly tied with the bride and groom. The consultant should not only be able to be an amazing planner, designer and a detail guru but should be a friend and someone the bride and groom could see themselves completely trusting; wholeheartedly. I want to make sure that are that I, as a planner, am a wedding concierge and at my clients every need and will no doubt have their best interest in mind to give them their most ultimate wedding day.
Do you offer packages?  If so, please describe.

Good things come in packages so we incorporated a few for our clients.

Life is…

Spontaneous {final planning + execution of wedding day details}

This coordination package is designed for the couple who wishes to complete all of the planning on their own but desires the luxury of celebrating their wedding day with complete peace of mind. We can make that wish a reality by eliminating the stress and worry associated with the “day of” details. A Life Design Event Planning Lead Coordinator will begin working with you four (4) weeks before your wedding and remain committed to your special day until the final event of the evening occurs.

Life is…

Inspiring (design services + vendor referrals + execution of wedding day details)
This coordination package includes the Spontaneous package but we have added value by including design services and vendor referrals. This package is for the couple that is looking for guidance on style, wedding trends, and ideas on incorporating their personalities in every detail of their wedding.
