OFFICE HOURS (EST):
Our hours vary slightly, due to the extreme hours we work in our busy season with lots of weddings! Here are the details:
May – October, Becca and Cassie each work Monday – Saturday (including 14 hour days on Saturdays) with the exception of a half day once a week. Becca’s half day is Wednesday and Cassie’s is Thursday. On the other days, we work 9:00 – 5:00. If we have a brunch to execute, then we take Monday off.
November – April, Becca and Cassie work a 4 day work week (to help counter balance our long hours the rest of the year) and Becca’s day off is Wednesday and Cassie’s is Thursday.
Other details to note about our schedules:
evening appointments available once a week
Saturday: none May – October (by appointment November – May), which means NO site visits on the weekend May – October
Sunday: none May – October (by appointment November – May), which means NO site visits on the weekend May – October
OFFICE HOURS EXPLAINED:
Office hours are times that we respond to your emails, complete client work, schedule our various social media and blogging content, and attend various meetings. We only hold meetings a few days a week and these days rotate depending on the season. We follow a block schedule to allow us to get work complete.

If you ever need anything, reach out in Aisle Planner where it makes the most sense. We receive email notifications anytime you write something:
in the checklist
comments for vendors
We DON’T get a notification for items in the Notes tab.
If you’re unsure where to reach out, please email. If it looks like there’s a lot to discuss, we’ll ask us to schedule a meeting. Keep in mind, we do keep office hours. At times, we’ll respond to an email or text outside of those hours, but it’s not a guarantee.
Meetings either occur in person at an agreed upon location, on the phone, or via Google Hangout for video chatting. We try to schedule these during office hours, but we’re flexible if these hours don’t work with your schedule.
ACCESSING GOOGLE HANGOUT:
You’ll receive an email from us with a link to our session before our scheduled meeting. Click that link and then the button that reads “Join Hangout.”
The number you have is strictly a business line. Feel free to text or call at anytime, but please note that we rarely answer outside business hours.

We expect you to:
Fill out our forms on Aisle Planner (client profile, ceremony details, production packing list) to ensure we have what we need to execute your wedding day
Upload ALL of your vendors AND contracts in the Contact tab in Aisle Planner (again this ensures we have what we need to execute your day)
Let us know if you need something
Honor our office hours
We use Aisle Planner and with your package, it’s a tool mostly for you. Feel free to use as you’d like. You’ll see that there are a few forms in the Notes section that we require you to fill out and we also expect you to upload all your vendors and contracts.
We also use a document we’ve created in Google Docs called Detail Tracker. This is where we document ALL of your details for your wedding. You have a link to this in Aisle Planner notes. Please feel free to view this at anytime and please do let us know if something is in correct (don’t worry about blank items— we fill this in as we go).
