Having a planner on your side is necessary.
Yes! We know that’s a bold statement, but it’s totally what we believe. Imagine your wedding day.
Where are you?
In a breathtaking field with a barn in the background,
nestled in the quaint streets of downtown Portland,
or somewhere with expansive water views?
Who are you with?
Everyone you know, your fiance knows, and everyone on your family’s friend list,
or is it smaller with your close friends and family?
Are you getting ready with a long list of friends or are you spending the morning with a few of your best friends instead?
What colors do you see?
A bright, bold palette,
a soft palette but still with color peaking through,
neutrals because it feels safe?
What does your cocktail hour feel like?
A fun jazz trio keeping conversation moving,
yard games so it feels like you’re at home,
signature drinks and custom napkins so the day feels like you?
How’s the vibe at your reception?
A showstopper head table with the guest tables paired down slightly,
all tables styled fully from the gorgeous linen color to the chargers and trio of glassware and those full floral arrangements,
or simple, yet elegant so you can spend more on a killer band?
Take some time and think about these parts. Now, imagine yourself managing them all on your own and executing it without something getting dropped. It feels impossible. Also, you can’t stop thinking about it all running smoothly without someone on the ground bringing it to life.
You want your wedding day to be exactly what you’re envisioning (and you may even need help with finding clarity in that vision). You want to be getting ready, smiling with your best friends, feeling absolutely at your best. You want those butterflies before that first moment seeing your fiance. And from the moment you walk down the aisle to the moment the last song ends, you don’t want to be worrying about a single detail getting forgotten.
