Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a recommended vendors list?


Yes! Upon booking, you will receive a welcome packet that includes a recommended vendors list with vendors ranging in style and price to help narrow down your search.




Can we meet before booking?


Of course! I actually insist on a consultation before officially booking. You can schedule an in-person, virtual, or phone consultation here.




How much is your deposit?


The deposit is $250 to secure the wedding date. The remaining invoice amount will be divided into two separate payments leading up to the wedding date.




Are you available on my wedding date?


Check my availability here.




Are there any added fees?


There are no hidden fees or taxes added to the planning packages. The package price is exactly what you will pay. The only exceptions would be:

  • Returned check fee: for any check payments that are cancelled or returned
