On WeddingWire since 2020

Rachael & Mike started Bad Boss Bride shortly after planning their own wedding.

Rachael worked as a Producer for over 10 years. Working on many diverse projects including Broadway productions, museum installations, large scale galas, video/film shoots and more. She is proud to have worked with companies like Google, Airbnb, JCREW and more. Mike also has roots in the theatre industry. Working as a set design and technical director for over 15+ years he's done it all! Providing technical direction and support for major concerts, large scale conventions, Broadway productions to name a few.

Despite all their experience they hit many pain points planning their own wedding. They knew there was a better way to approach the entire planning process that could be enjoyable for couples, foster creativity and be guided by understanding and support.

They developed their specific approach to wedding design and planning with their core values always at the forefront, empathy, understanding, creativity and flexibility.

Our Bride Sarah put best, "Rachael and her team actually listened to what we wanted and did not try to force us into a decision that did not feel right, which I think is what really sets them apart from other planners."​

A dream of a day with a dream team

Where to even begin, I found Rachael from Bad Boss Bride a little shy of a year from my wedding date. I was immediately drawn to all of their work; their style is exactly how I wanted my wedding to look and feel. I hadn't found any other wedding planners who doubled as florists, it felt meant to be, and after having the most amazing day of my life, it was definitely meant to be.

From the beginning, Rachael was very communicative and super helpful, keeping me calm and helping me understand what I needed to do and what to expect. Something no one tells you about weddings, because how would you know when you haven't done it before, is how much work and planning go into it; I had picked a venue where everything needed to be hired: Catering, Band, Florals, Rentals, etc. Rachael helped assure me every step of the way, created lists based on my needs and wants (dietary restrictions & venue restrictions) of vendors that would be a good fit, and then worked with all of my vendors to create the most seamless day. Every time I felt somewhat panicked, I was able to text or email and my worries were gone.

The weeks leading up to my wedding were the most stressful weeks, and Rachael was on top of *everything*. I wanted a lounge area, Rachael made it happen. I wanted a back-up weather day-of option, Rachael made it happen. Every tiny thing I worried about, Rachael had a back-up, it was the most stressful, stress-free two weeks and I can't thank the team enough. Every minor detail, every contact, just, everything. If anything went wrong the day of, I had no idea. I hired Bad Boss Bride for their ultimate package, including design help, florals, and day of coordination, and it was the best decision I made for the wedding. Rachael took all of my ideas, made them better, and brought them to life in the most fairy-tale, dream of a wedding day I could have imagined. The visuals, florals, the setups, just, everything was beautiful. I never imagined I would have a magazine wedding, but I did, and it was all Rachael's doing. My wedding was perfect, I can't recommend Bad Boss Bride enough.

Totally made our vision come to life, and even better than what we imagined!

Rachael made our wedding reception absolutely gorgeous and classy! We got so many compliments on the decor! We totally recommend her and are thankful that she was available to decorate for our special day. We had a small wedding reception (~75 people) and requested for her to remain within our budget. She totally understood the assignment! I described my vision and sent a few images from Pinterest and she completely ran with it. She made the process completely seamless.

Best decision

Working with Bad Boss Bride was one of our best decisions for our wedding. We realized several months out that we needed an industry pro to get everything in order. And Rachael was just that! She's incredibly thorough, calm, and organized. Her vendor recommendations were spot on and she was able to save us quite a bit of money with her rental recommendations/relationships. Hiring BBB was well worth it to have the wedding of our dreams!
