About After the Engagement Wedding Planning

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.

    Best decision I've made during the planning process

    Courtney and her team are an absolute treasure in the wedding world. I honestly don't know where I would be without them. I am a current bride/client of After the Engagement and they really do live up to all the 5-star/Excellent reviews on here. Planning a wedding during a global pandemic adds an extra layer of stress and Courtney has been an absolute asset to keeping my sanity. She is an extremely seasoned professional and highly regarded among vendors and others in the industry which speaks volumes. Everything she does is with the utmost professionalism: her response time is quick, her answers are thorough, and her input/decisions have proven to be invaluable. Her expertise in planning weddings in the Palm Springs area takes a lot of the blocking and tackling since she is so familiar with all the venues and vendors so you spend less time figuring out how many gas grills you need and more time focusing on the personal details of your wedding. At times I truly feel like I am the only bride she is working with because of the individualized attention. Lastly, depending on the package you buy, you have access to her wedding planning software which keeps you on track with a very complete checklist and timeline of all the details and minutia necessary for a flawless wedding - so for those who may be less organized (me), this is essential. Thank you Courtney and your team for all the hard work you guys have put in so far in what is a very challenging time.

    LOVE Courtney Tibbets/ After The Engagement

    From the first call my daughter and I had with Courtney, I appreciated her candor, and experience. Many planners take kick-backs from vendors they recommend, and this is not something she finds acceptable, and I loved her honesty about that. She offers different packages, and in our case, we created the overall theme, while she offered suggestions which was extremely helpful. We communicated with Courtney for several months before the wedding, she always responded quickly and had such a great attitude even as our ideas changed throughout the process. She reviewed all vendor contracts, ensured hotel rules and regulations were followed, and made sure we and our vendors stayed on track with timing, covering all of the bases, and had respect for our budget. She is very detail oriented, organized, straightforward, flexible, fun, creative, and professional. There is no question hiring her made all the difference in the overall success of my daughters wedding! I had complete confidence in her and her team as they ran the show at our welcome event, and the day of the wedding, so we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. I highly recommend using Courtney and her team. She was the calm in the storm throughout, I am extremely grateful for all that they did to make my daughters wedding dreams come true!

    The Rational Mind You Need

    When we first started planning our wedding, I asked my now wife "Why do we need a wedding planner? We can organize the ceremony." As you might have guessed, that hubris eventually gave way to reality, Not only do you desperately need a wedding planner, if you plan on doing anything original or fun, and you don't want to hate the process, you should hire Courtney and her team. As these other 5-star reviews make clear, Courtney is like picking Lebron James for your weekend basketball game. Pick Courtney and - if you listen to her - you are guaranteed to dominate.

    We wanted to throw out the playbook when it came to planning our wedding. And in many ways we did. But - thanks to Courtney - we found the perfect balance between the crazier things that were part of our original vision and still maintaining the character of a wedding. It was never - "oh no, that's a terrible idea." Instead it was, "That's a fun idea. What if we tried this variation?" We also have to thank - me in particular - Courtney for her patience with us during the planning process. I'm a bit of a procrastinator (case in point, our wedding was in November and I am just writing this review now :). But Courtney made it clear for us when we needed to make decisions and when not to panic because we hadn't yet. As others have mentioned, her connections with world-class vendors is a huge plus, especially if you are planning the wedding from afar, as we were.

    It was the week of the wedding where Courtney, with the help of her excellent assistant Thomas, really shined. We were, to put it mildly, stressed leading up to the wedding day. But all that stress washed away when we saw Courtney work at the rehearsal. Once I saw her in control, I knew everything was going to be all right. And i was right. The wedding was a huge hit.

    So a very big thank you to Courtney and her team. Be smart and hire her as early as possible. It's worth it.

    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.

  • Paul Douda Photography Wedding Photographers

    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!

  • Leaf it to Lexi Wedding Florists

    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!
