Joe and I still go on and on about you. We will be out for a few drinks, and then go on a 10 minute praise session about Courtney :) You really were the best thing that could have happened to us. Family is still saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. If we didn’t have your help, I think there might be an awful lot of radio silence instead.
— Kevin, Newlywed

I just texted Johnny to let him know how unbelievably grateful we are to him for orchestrating the happiest day of our lives with such style and ease. My head is still spinning at the moment - we can’t quite believe what we have experienced.

So this is just the precursor. I need to really sit down and focus to adequately put our gratitude into words.

For now I will just say that Tim and I feel like the two luckiest guys in the world. We had a perfect wedding day. Thank you thank you thank you. You’re stuck with us.
— Ryan, newlywed

Have you been looking for the perfect Wedding Planner, but just haven’t found anyone that you feel quite “gets you” yet?  

 
 
  • You want a laid-back and super-low-stress (I mean, what wedding is completely stress free?) wedding planning process

  • Most of the planner's websites you’ve looked at so far are super great and have lots of pretty pictures, but they just don't quite fit you or your wedding plans.  You might be feeling a little too quirky and non-traditional.  So are we!
  • You are planning to have a really fun party; the biggest one you’ve ever thrown, lots of dancing included
  • The ceremony does matter to you- it’s why we’re all here, after all
  • You have an idea of what you like and don’t like, but need some MAJOR pro guidance (and a little "no, you aren't crazy!") along the way
  • You can trust the pros you hire to produce and create an amazing day, and you feel comfortable giving up some control on the wedding day; we want you to be a guest, remember?
  • You understand that little things can go wrong, but it’s all in how you deal with it - and all in how we cover it up (expertly, I might add)
  • You want to give your guests a night to remember, a true experience from beginning to end
  • You feel comfortable forgoing wedding traditions that don’t make sense to you, or even creating your own!

we partner with any and all couples in love.

Because we don’t believe in recommending a vendor to one of our couples who wouldn’t service another of our couples, each of our recommended vendors also fully supports marriage equality and any LGBTQ clients we bring to them.

Courtney is proud to be certified by the Gay Wedding Institute.

You must know how much you meant (and mean) to us.  I was absolutely defeated and heartbroken when time and again EVERY wedding planner I looked up was awash in hetero-normativity.  It reminded me of being a kid and going into Hallmark stores and seeing that all the stock photos in picture frames were photos of coupled men and women and their families.  Not to see yourself reflected back in the world is so utterly corrosive to the soul.  When I found you, it was so powerful for me.  It was as though someone took my little 10 year old hand, and led me to the frames with pictures of women and women and men and men.  What you do, but more important HOW you do it makes an enormous impact.
