Wedding planning doesn't have to stress-filled or messy. I'm here to help you enjoy the process.  I already know that your wedding will be an amazing experience because it will reflect you. Working together, we will handle problems and find ways to create your day in your budget and style.  On your wedding day,  I will sweat the details while you soak up moments with loved ones.   


The Events by Elaine experience:

I offer wedding planning for couples that have their own ideas about how their wedding should be but want a unique perspective and fresh ideas to tell their story.  With professional service, we connect you with the talent and services to create a meaningful, one of a kind event.

Each package is custom created to best fit the needs and budget of our client.  Our wedding planning service includes:

Design: A storyboard starts the design process to help communicate your style and vision to vendors.  Florals, rentals and stationery details bring it to life. 

Online Planning App: Use this app to stay up to date and have instant access to your details.  Store all your vendor contacts and contracts.  Share ideas and images with with family and friends, allowing everyone to comment and collaborate.  It helps keep things paperless.

Professional Services:  Unlimited phone calls and emails.  We are here when you need us.  You make the final decisions on the design and vendors that fit your style; we provide the experience and make sure the details are handled.  

Professional vendors:  We want to save you time and stress.  You get peace of mind knowing that an amazing team will bring your dream to life.  We have spent many years connecting with great vendors who make every client feel special. 

Production Schedule: We create timelines and schedules for your entire day or your entire weekend.  We collaborate with vendors to make sure that everyone has all the info they need.  We review final orders, create floorplans and oversee logistics.

Prop Closet: Our planning clients get to use any of our props and decor free of charge. 

Wedding Day: Our biggest priority is for every couple to relax and enjoy this once in a lifetime moment.  We want you to celebrate with family while we handle the logistics.  

Most of  my couples plan to spend 8% - 12% of their budget on wedding planning. Prices start at $1500.
