Quite honestly, hiring Courtney was the single best thing we did for our wedding. First of all, she has an amazing personality and is so much fun to work with. She is responsive, listens to your ideas, and then gives feedback as to how to make it work. She is realistic and gives great advice. Courtney also turned all of the planning into reality seamlessly. I will never forget walking out to see the finished wedding venue for the first time and wondering how Courtney could have possibly done all of that, and so perfectly. In fact, she made our plans even better. If I could go back the one thing I would do is to get the full package. I HIGHLY encourage you to work with Courtney. There is no way you will ever regret it.

The Base | professional & experienced coordination | $3750

The Base Package is great for the couple looking to hire an experienced, qualified, and professional Wedding Planner (ain't no newbies here) to set up your venue, establish and keep you on a custom wedding day timeline, manage your vendors, and put out any wedding day fires that may rise up.  The Base has been created to include not only these traditional wedding “day of” and “month of” Coordinator jobs, but also some pre-event services such as unlimited email communications leading up to the wedding (unlimited you say?  yes!), a final details and venue walk-through meeting, ceremony rehearsal coverage, access to our vendor recommendations list, and more.  This package will keep everyone on the same page:  you, your family and wedding party, and the rad vendors you choose.

The Base Package works well for couples who could use a professional wedding BFF to help you along the way, those needing guidance but less hands-on planning assistance, and those whose main priority is to relax and enjoy their Big Day.  We will ensure that your event is seamless, fun, and most importantly, low stress.

The Plus is our most popular Consulting and Planning option, and is a package perfectly tailored to clients looking for a fun Wedding Planner to partner with, but who still want a major role in the wedding planning adventure.
