The professional wedding planning & coordination packages at After the Engagement include peace of mind, stress relief, access to a wide array of really awesome, immensely talented, and ridiculously good-looking wedding professionals, and so much more.  



Budgets…


We all have them! 

AtE generally works with budgets between $50K and $250K for an average size wedding of 60 to 250 guests with all the trappings {ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, venue, DJ/band, flowers, and the list goes on}.

Please feel free to reach out if your budget doesn’t fit these parameters, but you are doing a smaller wedding, or you have a free backyard venue, or anything that changes the “normal” budgeting line items.

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 | $4250

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 arise.  The Base has been created to include not only these traditional wedding “day of” and “month of” Coordinator jobs, but also pre-event services such as unlimited emails {unlimited you say?  yes!}, log-in to our custom wedding planning software, a final details and venue walkthrough meeting, ceremony rehearsal coverage, access to our ever-evolving and highly curated vendor recommendation list, and more.  This package will keep everyone on the same page;  you, your family and wedding party, and the rad vendors you choose.

[Courtney is] as good, if not better, than advertised. While we didn’t have her for the big day, we were lucky to have Johnny with us running the show. Our day went off without a hitch, all due to Johnny’s attention to detail and work ethic. All of our guests complimented how well it went, and some went even as far as to say it was the best wedding they have attended. We can’t thank Courtney enough for her guidance through the planning process, and Johnny for the flawless execution!
