Frequently Asked Questions
covering the basics
How do we know if you're the right planner for us?

Hiring a planner is the beginning of a long-term, personal relationship... and one that requires mutual compatibility. Planning a large-scale event means working closely together for up to 18 months (or more). Trust, connection, compatible personalities and work-styles are just a few of the essential ingredients imperative to the success of the planner/client relationship. To help you determine if we are the right planner for you, we invite you to check out our bios and instagram gallery to get a sense of who we are. Then, fill out our inquiry form and we'll schedule a FREE Discovery Call to begin the assessment to see if we're a match.

Our venue includes a planner/coordinator. Will we still need your services?

It's our experience that our services work hand-in-glove with the services provided by venue planners/coordinators, to ensure every detail of your vision is accounted for. In-house venue planners/coordinators primarily focus on venue-related set-up of their own tables, chairs, place-settings, and food and beverage service. They don't usually connect with your vendor team in advance of the wedding day, set up your personal decorative installations, and build a comprehensive timeline that accounts for all of your outside service provider needs. Our planning services, will compliment the services your venue provides. We'll focus on the big picture of your wedding in its entirety, working collaboratively with your venue planner/coordinator and all of your vendors to ensure every detail comes together seamlessly.

Do you offer Day-Of Coordination?

We offer month + day-of services; we call this Event Management. This is the perfect package for those who wish to plan all the details of their celebration and then pass the baton so they can enjoy the party, rather than work it. We come aboard your celebration 4-6 weeks out from your event date to get familiar with your plans through a series of consultations and then we provide you up to 10 hours of event management on event day.

Do you work with LGBTQIA couples?

We love LOVE, and we absolutely support our LGBTQIA friends in their celebrations of LOVE.

Do you work with clients from out-of-area?

We absolutely work with clients from out of the area. We can do most planning consultations over conference calls, Zoom, Google Meet, Facetime, and email. Living behind the redwood curtain, nearly half of our clients are from out of area.
