Desirée was amazing! My partner and I were working with such a limited budget we weren't sure we could afford a planner, but Desirée was well worth everything we spent. Our venue was a park, which meant coordinating a lot of vendors. Desirée helped us keep track of everything, did all of the vendor coordination required in the weeks leading up to our day, and helped us plan things we weren't even thinking about. Not only is she great at the planning aspect, but Desirée is absolutely a professional and a very warm person to work with. We are a queer couple, and Desiree was great about respecting pronouns, being aware of gendered language, etc. Such a simple kindness that meant a lot to us.

I've secured a lot of the vendors already. Can we still work together?

I'm so glad you asked! Custom design is a key component of my Full Service package. We discuss in depth your tastes and style and I tailor the wedding design to you. It walks you through the day scene by scene. Imagery, color palettes, layouts, and fabric swatches are only the beginning. Click here to see an example.

trying to pick out colors and make everything look cohesive makes me anxious. Can you help?

One of the first things I do for my full-service clients is draft a realistic budget. It accounts for your priorities and your vision for the day. I present you with pricing options so you have control over your spending. This prevents anxiety about surprise costs and gives you more control of your budget. A wedding planner is an investment in you and your wedding. A majority of vendors are with you on your day and your day only. I support you for the duration of the planning process AND at the wedding and often even after. You are paying for expertise to manage a complex team of vendors with intricate nuances. My couples want their wedding to be a time of joy and celebration for them and their guests. They want to experience the day calm and focused on their family, not distracted and tense. I help them achieve that.

you're over my budget but i still want to work with you. help!

In reality, the venue has at least 1 wedding every weekend. They don’t have the time to devote to your wedding and your details like a professional planner does. Nor are they supposed to. The venue coordinator represents the venue. I represent you. If something goes wrong at the venue, I make sure they provide a fair resolution to the situation. If you don’t have a planner, you are at the mercy of the venue.  

what if the venue has a planner?
