Kathy Best and the crew pay GREAT attention to detail, thinking of little things I would not have. I never worried about the wedding day because I knew they had triple checked everything ahead of time.  Rebekah 6/15/14

Kathy’s team did a wonderful job at ensuring that we all had the best day and that all loose ends were tied up before the wedding began. Kathy was very thoughtful and thorough with all of the details and would keep me in the loop with all the things going on.  Amber 6/22/12

LEVELS OF INVOLVEMENT

Whether you just need decorators to set up your décor, director to orchestrate the final details or a planner from start to finish, we have the experience staff to execute what you need. The following packages list a few examples of our involvement. With an in-depth conversation we can review all your needs and determine which level is for you.

DAY OF DIRECTOR PACKAGE

The Day of Director package is for the couple who has the overall concept of their wedding planned out, is securing their vendors and narrowing down the majority of the details. They just need help organizing and orchestrating the logistics to make sure it all comes off without a hitch.

  • Suggest vendors
  • Create a detail sheet,  venue layout and Day of Schedule
  • Place rental order if needed
  • Communicate final plans with vendors
  • Oversee day of activities

WEDDING DAY PLANNING PACKAGE

Don’t know where to begin? How do I plan a budget without knowing what things cost? How do I know the right questions to ask vendors?  What should I expect from my vendors? How do I turn my Pinterest into reality?

If event planning is not something you typically do, how would you know these answers?  What if you are planning a destination wedding or juggling a demanding schedule?  No matter what the circumstances, we give you the tools and guidance to maneuver through the information highway and determine the best choices for you.  Consider it a “short cut” only the locals know!

This package begins with all of the items in the Day of Director package but it will begin much sooner and with more of our time availability by the planner to help guide you in your decision making.

  • Comprehensive budget planning
  • Vendor contract review and meetings
  • Styling Recommendations
  • Decor & Styling

FULL EVENT PLANNING

This package is all of the above and then some.  Some couples have an idea for what they want but due to time constraints or lack of experience need a professional to take the lead and develop a comprehensive plan.

This package not only includes consulting, coordination and directing but is designed to bring the bride & groom fresh ideas and invaluable information for the entire weekend.

With our vast knowledge and experience working with vendors, we are able to offer assistance on all aspects of your wedding activities including travel and lodging, rehearsal dinner, spa needs, tourist attractions, guest relations, security, transportation and oversee a customized event plan start to finish.
