Process and Pricing
Your wedding will likely be the biggest and most important event you ever host. No matter how simple or over-the-top your vision is, none of it will happen on its own. There will be hundreds of decisions to make along with hours and hours of research, shopping and planning to get you to the big day. Because of the amount of work involved, I limit the number of clients I work with each year to ensure my full attention and unparalleled service in bringing their dreams to life.
Our first meeting is complimentary. We need to get a feel for each other and see if we'll be compatible before making a commitment to work together. I believe that during your wedding planning, and especially on the day itself, you should partner with people you really like and who 'get' you. You are, after all, trusting them with your plans and memories on the biggest day of your life.
Remembering that all services are tailored to your specific needs, here's a sampling of how I can help tell your love story.
COMPLETE DESIGN & MANAGEMENT
You're a busy couple who needs help from beginning to end - designing the aesthetic of the day, budget guidance, booking/working with all vendors, managing the rehearsal and wedding day and hundreds of other details in between. I'll work with you from the save-the-dates to the final dance, handling every aspect of designing and managing your big day. Complete Design & Management services begin at $8,500*
PARTIAL DESIGN & MANAGEMENT
You have an overall vision for your wedding day and have booked several vendors but are feeling a little lost. I can enter the planning process to assist with additional design concepts, organizational decisions, recommendation of vendors, review of contracts, etc. I become the main contact on your behalf, completing the remainder of the planning including management of the rehearsal and wedding day. Partial Design & Management services begin at $5,500*
PERSONALIZED DESIGN SERVICE
Maybe you want help in designing the look and creating just the right vibe for your big day. I’d love to collaborate with you and curate an event that tells your very own love story and is infused with your individual personalities - let's leave your guests saying, "This is so you!" The goal of this two+ hour meeting is to develop your wedding aesthetic and identify the elements that will work with your vision and budget. About two weeks after our meeting, you'll receive an inspiration board, color palette, graphic/paper goods concept and a comprehensive resource list to help bring your personally curated design to life. Design Services are $950 (fee applicable if you upgrade to Complete Design & Management services).
Please, even if you are excited to do all your own planning, hire a day-of coordinator - it's an investment you will not regret! With that said, as of Autumn 2017, I no longer offer day-of services in order to better serve my complete and partial design clients. I do, however, have several colleagues who I highly recommend for day-of services, so please let me point you in their direction.
*Pricing is based on a single venue with a guest count of up to 150 guests.
Two venues and/or a larger guest count requires increased staffing and your fees will reflect those additional costs.
Travel is one of my first loves and I'll happily come to you!
Additional fees will be incurred for transportation, housing, etc. for weddings held beyond Northern California.
