Our team will reach out to you to schedule a free consultation. This is an informal meeting with Jessica, preferably in-person (and most likely over coffee!), in which I will get to know you as a couple. I will touch base on where you are currently in the planning process, your timeline, budget, and vision for your perfect day. From there, our team will create a custom proposal based on your specific wants, needs, and financial constraints, and send this to you within 7 business days of our meeting. This proposal can be edited as many times as necessary, until you are happy with the full outline of services.
Wedding planners may seem to have a hefty price tag, but once you take into consideration how much money and time a good planner can save you, they are an excellent investment. For most couples, planning a wedding is a brand new experience, where as a professional planner has done this numerous times and not only can recommend good, trustworthy vendors and venues, but also avoid costly mistakes and hidden fees that can quickly put a couple well over their budget. On the big day itself, the bride and groom can relax and enjoy the celebration of their love, knowing they have a pro taking care of the details, ensuring all vendors are where they need to be on time, and every part of the day is executed seamlessly. Additionally, they generally come with a team and therefore can be "in two places at once", which comes in handy when the photographer needs to be taking first look photos at the same time the guests are arriving and the reception venue is getting it's final touches.
In addition to my 10+ years of event planning and coordinating experience, I have a unique skillset that makes me a highly successful (and detail-obsessed) planner and designer. My resume includes some of the top event names in the country, as well as a background in both accounting and the performing arts. These experiences have given me the tools to create beautiful, show-stopping events for my clients, and the ability to create a custom planning portals, budget trackers, etc. to help each couple stay organized and within their budget.
My package pricing covers any location within the Phoenix metro area, but yes, we definitely will travel! 25-50 miles outside of the Phoenix metro area (as far North as Prescott and South as Marana) is $75 per trip and up to 150 miles (up to Flagstaff or down to Tucson) is $150 per trip. Anything beyond that is negotiable and will be discussed up front, so no hidden travel fees to worry about!
I offer packages and a la carte options so couples can decide how much they want to utilize our services based on their needs and their budget. Once we complete our free consultation and I get a good understanding of where you are at in the planning process and what you are looking for, I will create a custom proposal for you. This proposal can be edited as many times as you see fit in order to ensure I am covering all of the planning bases you need, while staying within your budget.
A la carte services can be used as stand-alone services - for couples who have done the majority of the planning themselves but would like help in one particular department, or as an add-on to partial planning packages and/or day-of coordination packages. These individual services are offered so our couples can utilize our expertise where they need it, without having to pay for a full wedding planning service, like most planners charge.
I will only charge additional fees for services outside of the scope of the package paid for. These generally include travel fees, accommodation fees (for anything far enough away that requires an overnight stay), any additional services not included in the package (for example: a day-of coordination that requests an a la carte service like custom budget or venue scouting, or additional errands or drop offs/pickups, etc.), and any decor items that need to be purchased for design services. Any additional costs and fees would be discussed up front, so there will be no financial surprises!
