About An Urban Affair

Fun, Fabulous and Fresh describe our clients’ events. At An Urban Affair, our philosophy is to translate your interests, tastes, budget and vision into a seamless, meaningful event, allowing you to relax and enjoy both the planning of and your wedding day! We believe that you should be able to have a wedding that speaks to who you are as a couple and reflects your own style. On your big day, we want you, your fiancé, and your families to focus on your guests, instead of worrying about vendors or schedules, allowing your guests to feel honored and treasured because you cared about their comfort and hired the very best. this is what we strive to accomplish for every client’s event, regardless of size, scope or budget.

An Urban Affair will customize a plan to suit your needs, based off of the following levels of service (these are general “packages” to get started)

  • The Everything, complete full-planning service that covers the design and development of every aspect of your wedding day, with a full-time consultant guiding you through the process. We are the main contact for all of your vendors and take the pressure off of you for scheduling meetings, asking those all important questions and negotiating the specifics of your contracts, allowing you to simply make your final selections, leaving the details of execution to us. Your personal consultant team will also attend to your every need on your wedding day, making sure all the carefully made plans are flawless.
  • Luxe Coordination, hands-on guidance from a professional consultant, beginning with a budget consultation, followed by a customized planning timeline for you to follow, with a monthly check-in email detailing your “to do’s” for that month, budget & style specific vendor recommendations, tips & tricks to help with interviewing vendors, and your consultant will be available to answer any questions that come up during your planning. This way, you still experience the whole process, with a expert at the ready to guide you every step of the way.
  • The Finishing Touch, day of coordination at its best. We will contact you 2-3 months prior to your wedding to go over all the fabulous plans you’ve made, collecting copies of your contracts, asking about the details and advising on the flow of the day. Then, we will take that information and create a comprehensive timeline, especially for your wedding day. Next comes checking in with your vendors, final walk-thrus, dotting the “I’s” and crossing the “T’s” to ensure that all your plans are realized on your special day.

    A Geek (Jon 42) and a Tomboy (Jen 38) waited 9 years to marry. They were sure they didn't want to have a giant wedding for the sake of having a giant wedding. Ellen never pushed. We agreed upon "The Finishing Touch" and it was perfect! A larger wedding needs more in depth services, but we needed someone to hold/slap our hand when things got hairy! Let the Vendors do what they do best . . . their job. Allow the Vendors the chance to bring the joy of this important to day to life with the experience they've accumulated. Ellen is a guide, a therapist, a ring leader, a Walgreens (she brings suitcases of stuff to the Wedding! If she doesn't have it, she finds it for you!), and most of all a Friend. She's deserves respect, and she earns it! Ellen and Kathlyn (Wedding Ninja!) came equipped with headsets, speaking to each other about timelines, possible issues, shuffling of parents, music, food, flowers, wedding party, overly dramatic guests, and trillions of other things that I didn't hear while the world spun around Jon and I. She made sure that Jon and I never thought FOR A SECOND about "what ifs". Hire An Urban Affair if you want your wedding to be YOURS. You will sleep better, smile broader, and enjoy it SO much more knowing that you and your Love are free to enjoy the day! Seriously. Don't think about it as spending money on an extra thing. You're spending money to sure that you don't spend too much money! She recommends people like Craig & Mysi of Soda Fountain Photography to turn reality into fantasy with a camera, imagination, and SO much Love! She saves lives. Seriously! We would not have enjoyed the day so much had we not worked with An Urban Affair, LLC.

    At first my wife and I were going to plan our wedding ourselves, hoping to create an event that reflected us uniquely. The sheer number of moving parts made the process difficult, so we called in Marcia from An Urban Affair. She and Ellen were responsive, organized, on the ball, and in a word, superstars. They quickly understood and embraced our vision, thought of all the little details we would have missed, pointed us to vendors who suited us perfectly, and advocated for us wonderfully. They were able to get better prices than we ever could, it probably saved us money to hire them in the end, not to mention the fact they were more than worth their fee simply by themselves. The wedding went off wonderfully, and we have many thanks to give them for the fantastic job they did.
