Non-traditional Wedding and Event Planning
Emily Berg Weddings, based in Canton, Ohio, plans and designs meaningful, happy, nostalgic weddings, celebrations and events for those who think outside the box, buck tradition, and fit into no one’s mold.
Both in the planning process and in the end result, we want to steep your wedding in meaning.
The unique ceremony and celebration we create together will be not only beautiful, but full of your personalities and thoughtful references to important moments in your relationship.
What do you collect? What holds sentimental value for you? What brings up happy memories?
Incorporating weirdness into your wedding design doesn’t mean your wedding will end up looking like a garage sale. We have a unique knack for combining unconventional motifs with traditional wedding elements in a way that perfectly balances beauty, meaningful details, and fun. Your people know your quirks, and love you for them – and they’ll be delighted to discover how we’ve sprinkled the best parts of who you are into the design of your celebration.
I’ll also connect you with the best local, sustainable, women-, LGBTQ- and BIPOC-owned wedding professionals, so you can be intentional with where you spend each dollar.
And, you get to designate which of my chosen non-profits receive 10% of your contract total.
The shortest point between two points is a straight line. I love the challenge of finding that straight line – which saves you stress, time and money.
This means your decision-making is made easier because of a focused vision and with me along to act as your objective-opinion-giver.
Creating an efficient wedding weekend master plan reduces the overwhelm for you and the stress on your wedding party, family, and guests.
Designating a custom list of tasks for your coordinator ensures no detail will be overlooked.
My clear and consistent communication with your chosen wedding professionals creates an environment of teamwork towards your goals.
And with me as your advocate, you can be confident that your wedding day will run as smoothly and feel as fun, relaxed, and meaningful as you’ve dreamed it would.

I cannot thank Emily enough for helping us plan our wedding. Before we hired her we were getting more and more overwhelmed. Even though no one planning the wedding lived in the same place, or even lived near our venue, Emily was able to help everything come together, and really alleviate the stress we had.
The wedding itself was even more fun and beautiful than we could have imagined. She has such a positive and calming presence, and was such a joy to work with and have there during our day. Thank you so much Emily ❤️

My (now) husband and I are outspoken, nerdy, weird, and committed to justice in our communities. While other wedding planners told us they 'might be able to incorporate some of that,' Emily said that was 'awesome.' She helped us plan the wedding of our dreams, set up a giant light up chess set, bustled my dress after I stepped on it 4 times because I'm clumsy, and handled every emergency (existential and otherwise) with grace and competence. Her recommendations and opinions (which you should ask for) were spot on. I couldn't recommend her more as a human and planner.
