About After the Engagement Wedding Planning

A Planning Partner for the New-Fashioned Wedding.

I have been planning and coordinating weddings for 10 years, and have been involved with just about 400 weddings in that time.  I am not only a Wedding Planner, but perhaps more importantly, I am an Experience Designer.  What does that mean?  I’ve paid attention and gained valuable experience and a strong familiarity at each and every one of the weddings I have been a part of…  What do guests like?  When do you lose their attention during speeches, and how can we plan a timeline around that?  What kind of menu do people rave about, and which signature cocktails get scooped the quickest?  

Ultimately, what matters most, and what will people remember about your wedding day?

I sincerely hope to help make this memorable, fun, and special time in your life even better.  Thank you for taking a moment to browse my page and my reviews, and I hope you will consider After the Engagement for your special event.

Please visit my website for more details!  I can't wait to hear from you.

Courtney was amazing!!! We could not have planned our destination wedding without her! We loved all of her vendor recommendations and she was so responsive to emails and answered all of my questions, even on Thanksgiving! On wedding day, she handled all of the details and logistics which made our day calm, relaxing, and so enjoyable. Our wedding was completely perfect because of Courtney!

Courtney and her team were truly indispensable during the wedding planning process. I felt that communication was quick but thorough, and that Courtney was full of solutions and excellent referrals to help us move through many decisions along the way. Courtney’s energy is that of a pro: calm, collected, and always aware of the bigger picture for the day.
We couldn’t have asked for a more well-connected and helpful team to make our wedding day a dream come true. Thank you!!

Hiring Courtney and her team at After the Engagement was the BEST decision my husband and I made after we got engaged and started to plan our destination wedding in Palm Springs. I still remember the very first call we had with Courtney (before we decided to work with her), and how she explained the process, our options, and answered all our questions - we knew instantly we needed to work with her and could trust her to help us create one of the most special days of our lives. My husband and I live in New York, so thinking about planning a destination wedding from afar and under a year felt a bit daunting. But Courtney made us feel at ease and we knew we could count on her for every last detail. During the process, Courtney guided us every step of the way. We had to bring in every single vendor (florals, tables, chairs, lighting, etc) and Courtney was totally on point with every single vendor she recommended based on our budget and the vibe we were going for. Courtney is extremely easy-going, as a great sense of humor, and is so accommodating. We knew she truly listened to us. The day of our wedding we were blown away - she and her team exceeded our expectations (which were already very high!) and everything was absolutely PERFECT. She coordinated every last detail to make sure the day ran as smoothly as possible. It was a day I know we will never forget, and our friends and family are still telling us months later how our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to. We cannot thank Courtney and her team enough for their amazing work and support. We highly recommend After the Engagement to anyone looking to create a kick-ass wedding of their dreams!

Professional Network & Endorsements

Courtney is a true professional- it's always a treat to work her weddings. Organized & excellent communication, but what really stands out is how much her clients LOVE her. Not all coordinators have such happy clients- and you see that when you're in the industry. We always ADORE the weddings that we work with After the Engagement & definitely recommend them to engaged couples.

Courtney is amazing! She had some really personal touches to the wedding. I love with a wedding coordinator is in control without being controlling. It makes for a great mood on all vendors. Sara & Bianca's wedding we worked together at was one of my favorites and I hope to work with her again!

Courtney is one of the best wedding coordinators I've worked with in recent years. She is funny, caring, and hard working and creates beautiful events. I always look forward to events with After the Engagement!

I have done several weddings with Courtney and I personally feel she does a fantastic job and really caters to her clients needs. I have seen her working hard on the wedding day to make sure everything is perfect for her clients special day. She always contacts all the vendors ( myself included ) prior to the wedding day to make sure everyone knows exactly where they need to be and when. I highly recommend Courtney!
