Best Decision Ever!
Considering hiring a wedding planner but are Type A so you think you don't need one? THINK AGAIN!
I contacted 2 Hands Studios 6-months before my wedding after most of the vendors were already booked. I thought I'd make it easier on my family by getting day-of support. Boy was I wrong! Ally did not just support on the wedding day, but for 6-weeks leading up to the wedding and anytime I needed advice, recommendations or reassurance that a Pandemic-wedding could be pulled off and still extremely enjoyable.
I cannot express enough to future brides on the fence about getting a planner and checking out 2Hands Studios.. just take my word for it and hire this team!
My husband and I both took on new promotions 2-months leading up to our wedding so Ally stepped up in a big way to make sure that she understood our wants and ran with several vendors herself, makings sure they all contacted her instead of me which was incredibly helpful to streamline communication and timeline planning!
Ally - THANK YOU, we could not have done it without you. You kept us calm and fed during the best days of our live. You're such a pro at what you do and for capturing our wedding-day vision with ease.
We highly recommend this team for any bride or groom looking for wedding planning - whether a year or 6-weeks out you will not regret this decision!

Best day ever!! Thank you 2hands for everything!
We would recommend 2Hands Studios over and over again for your wedding planning, stationary, and rental needs!!! We worked with Kris Archer and she is so thoughtful, detail oriented, calm, professional, flexible, fun, everything you would want in a planner for your big day! We had to reschedule our wedding twice and switch venues and Kris made the whole experience as stress free as possible. She went above and beyond for us to make sure our wedding included all the details we wanted. Ally and Jill are so sweet! We had rentals and stationary from 2hands and they made our wedding just perfect. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is not fun with all the unknowns, but I trusted 2hands with everything! Kris was more than a planner, she was our constant support system and friend. Our wedding day was so special and I want to thank 2hands Studios and their whole team as a day we will never forget!!! I will definitely miss working with them!Sent on 04/10/2021

Very Professional--Great Value
I'm the dad who thought we didn't need to hire a wedding planner for my daughter's wedding. I was very wrong, and I'm glad we hired Ally Tierney of 2HandsStudios.Sent on 01/15/2020
We would not have been able to pull off my daughter's Annapolis wedding (we live 700 miles away) without Ally. She helped us find and choose vendors, coordinated vendor payments, and held vendors accountable. When one vendor (the reception venue) became problematic, she got involved in every communication and eventually took over communicating with one difficult vendor. We benefited from her relationships with particular vendors--she has a terrific reputation and a positive relationship with many vendors. To our tremendous benefit, those vendors wanted to keep her happy.
She shared ideas, including ideas on simplifying matters, and made great recommendations on what was necessary/what was superfluous, who to tip, and how much to tip. She was decisive, every step of the way--we needed good recommendations and she provided them. She gave ideas and assistance in assembling guest gift bags, allowing us to use her office for that purpose.
Ally managed everything on the day of the wedding, from room setup to coordinating day-of deliveries and reminding us to get the bridal party fed. She came up with a wedding-day schedule that made sense and then showed up to keep everyone on that schedule. She was firm, tactful, and professional in all respects, and represented us well every step of the way.
A wedding should be fun and stress free. Ally kept it that way, and my wife and my daughter found her positive, reassuring and enthusiastic. Thanks to her, my family (particularly my daughter and my new son-in-law) had a fantastic day!

Welcome! Designing and the creative outlet that weddings brings to my world is amazing. I've been design and creating invitations for over a decade after receiving a BA in fine arts and sustaining a long career in graphic design. Invitations are the first glimps into your wedding that your guests will see and I am here to inspire, design and create the most memorable invitations and paper accents for you. I can't wait to meet you and start designing!

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 (over 2000…crazy, but true), weddings have always been what I am most drawn to. So when 2 of my closest friends reached out a few years back 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!
2hands is such an asset in the wedding industry. They have all the wedding pretties that you want, but don't want to have to buy. These ladies are so creative and wonderful to work with. They make our museum look fabulous, and everything they have is photo-worthy. Every bride should use 2hands!
2 Hands Studios is a insanely creative company! They will add really memorable artistic elements to your wedding when you hire them and help you coordinate your event flawlessly. I recommend them to all my clients.
