Verve was the only planner we interviewed. If you are considering them, just do it! Desirée and her team are true professionals. And, not only that, they become friends. We felt like she and her team cared about us and making our day incredible. Most importantly, we were able to be present and enjoy every single aspect of our wedding weekend without stressing about details. We knew Desirée and her team were there and would make sure everything was perfect.

 Desirée was the only planner we met before hiring. Her ability to listen to us and create a design that matched us as a couple, and then execute it was amazing. During the planning, Desirée carried the worry for us so that we could enjoy the wedding planning process. Just hire her!

"It was honestly perfect. Truly the most beautiful wedding."

We chose to work with Verve because of Desiree's attention to detail and her young and fresh but professional energy. She always gave her honest opinion versus telling me what she thought I wanted to hear. At the wedding, I had total trust everything would go smoothly! We heard, "This is literally the most beautiful wedding I've ever been to" countless times!

Other than choosing my husband, choosing to work with Desiree was the best decision that we made for our wedding. She’s the most organized, knowledgeable person I’ve ever met! My mom said during the planning process "when I count my blessings, I count Desiree twice."  Thanks for making it the best day ever!

"She read our minds and made our vision come to life!"

We were driving to our minimoon and we said to ourselves ‘We didn't deserve that. It was so perfect. So flawless. It was surreal that it even happened to us and for us. Our friends said it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to.

"Desirée brought so much joy to our lives."

Desirée knows what she's talking about. She understood my vision and was extremely organized. During welcome drinks and on the wedding day, I got to fully relax and enjoy the moment with my family and friends while Desirée made sure everything was buttoned up, running smoothly and perfect.

"We loved her designs and attention to detail."

She curated a beautiful vision for us that reflected who we are. She has amazing relationships with vendors and makes sure that they understand your vision. We had zero stress and full faith in Verve to pull together a beautiful day. They exceeded our expectations big time! We highly recommend working with Verve Event Co. and can't say enough great things about Desiree!

"We would have been lost without her."

I have more questions. How do I get in touch?

Payments are spread over multiple installments depending on the length of time we're working together.

What's the payment schedule?

YES! We would love that! Many couples Full Service planning even though they've booked "their main vendors." We work with them on budget creation and tracking, vendor management, event design, among many other things. We work with their vendors to ensure all their planning is in order, such as updating timelines, production schedules, and inventory lists, so that they can be fully present with their guests during the whole weekend.

I've booked many of the vendors already. Can we still work together?

I'm so glad you asked! Custom design is a key component throughout the planning process. We discuss in depth your tastes and style and we 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 colors and make everything look cohesive makes me anxious. Can you help?

One of the first things we do for our full-service clients is draft a realistic budget. It accounts for your priorities and your vision for the day. We 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. We 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. Our couples want their wedding to be a time of celebration for them and their guests. They want to experience the day calm and focused on their family, not distracted and tense. We 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. We represent you. If something goes wrong at the venue, we make sure they provide a fair resolution to the situation. 

What if the venue has a planner?
