Northeast Ohio Wedding Coordination, Planning & Design

You’re engaged!

You know your love story. You know who you are. You know what you love.

You aren’t especially interested in doing what everyone else is doing, but want your wedding to be a reflection of your breathtakingly-beautiful-and-uniquely-quirky-selves. 

You’re not afraid to make bold or unexpected choices that will make you and your guests smile. 

You want to focus on your guests and give them an unforgettable experience full of meaningful details. 

You want to be intentional with where and how you spend every penny – on wedding elements that matter to you, supporting wedding professionals who share your values, and toward causes that are close to your heart.

You want your wedding to tell your love story, and be a natural extension of yourselves. 

How will you bring it all together, into a fun, beautiful and unique experience for your loved ones – and actually enjoy a process most people find highly stressful?

Welcome.

Take a deep breath. 

You don’t have to do this alone.

I’m here to listen, and to serve you.

Here’s how we’ll do it.

Meaningful Creativity

Both in the planning process and in the end result, we want to steep your wedding in meaning. The 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 these things into your wedding design doesn’t mean your wedding will end up looking like a garage sale. I have a unique knack for combining quirky 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 unique parts of who you are into the design of your celebration.

I’ll also connect you with the best local, sustainable, women- 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 my fee. 

Strategic Efficiency

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.

The Process

First, schedule a Coffee & Chat so we can get to know each other, make sure we’ll work well together, and determine which service is best for you and the wedding you’re dreaming of. 

Then, I’ll send you my notes about what we discussed along with a personalized proposal – and pencil you in on the calendar! 

After a week or so, once you and your partner have had some time to discuss your proposal, I’ll check in to see if I’ll have the honor of serving you throughout the wedding planning process. 

Once your contract is signed, you can take a deep breath and know you’ve just given yourself – and your loved ones – the gift of peace and joy.
