There through thick and thin!

Not being from the area, 2Hands Studio gave me recommendations for various vendors that helped me narrow down the choices. Our daughter's wedding was planned for July 2022, but the groom was deployed two months before, and everything had to be postponed a year. Mollie and 2Hands jumped right in and helped us reschedule with all of the vendors. Happily, the wedding took place this year. Mollie was very responsive and helpful and had a great relationship with many of the vendors we chose which made things run smoothly. Due to the heat, we decided to make major changes to the reception layout two days before the wedding and Mollie guided us through a stressful decision. The day of the wedding there was a major thunderstorm while guests were being transported from the Chapel to the reception and I texted Mollie continuously on the bus and she had everything under control by the time we arrived. It was after 11 pm the night of the wedding and Mollie dropped off all of the decor items at our rental house in Annapolis which was out of her way. I, seriously, don't think we could have managed without her!

Best money we spent on our wedding!

Hiring 2Hands may have been the best money we spent on our wedding. Working with Jen reassured us that everything would be taken care of and that nothing would slip through the cracks, and gave us a lot of peace of mind during a process that can be quite stressful at times Her expertise and connections were invaluable; she had fantastic recommendations for vendors and we were very happy with everyone we worked with. Jen continually went above and beyond, taking the time to answer all of our questions and offer great suggestions, especially for a couple that less oriented toward design and small details. We also have to thank for her for quick thinking – when the forecast changed to rain only a couple days before our wedding, she quickly directed us to a tent company to help provide extra tent space at our venue. With her wealth of experience and thoughtful planning, she does a great job considering all details of the process, and helped us with several tasks that we didn’t even realize were part of planning. We cannot recommend 2Hands enough. Hire them and make planning less stressful for yourself!

Mollie went above and beyond

By the time we were a month out I was so glad we hired Mollie! It was great to start forwarding everything to her and by the time the weekend arrived we were confident, relaxed and able to enjoy our guests with minimal disruptions. I can’t imagine the experience without Mollie and 2Hands.

I guess I have always been a free spirit. I have always been one to follow my dreams fiercely to see where they lead. I began my career in theatre, spent some time living in India, taught special education, and then started a business designing and making one of a kind jewelry pieces and handbags. And then I met Jill! Jill and I hit it off right away. We both loved designing, loved theatre and, it turns out our husbands went to high school together (small world!). We were destined to be friends and I just love the business we have created together. One of my favorite aspects about our business is the people we have met along our way. Our clients and their families mean the world to me and have helped shape 2hands into what it is today!

A leap of faith is how I became a part of 2hands Studios. I’ve been producing events spanning from intimate garden weddings to 7000 person galas for many years. Of all the events that I have been a part of, weddings have always been what I am most drawn to. So when 2 of my closest friends reached out about adding a new division to their already successful event business, I took that leap of faith and am so grateful that I did! I love getting to know my clients personally and helping them bring their ideas to life to create their dream wedding. I’m a sucker for a good “how we met” story. Can’t wait to meet you and hear yours!
