A note about “Day-of coordination” packages: This rarely means JUST help on the actual wedding day. Many brides are looking for help starting anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks out from the wedding, and we’re happy to customize your package with a timeline that works best for you.

Including us in your wedding day plans will ensure a smooth and stress-free environment not only for the bride and groom, but also for the wedding party, families, venue and vendors. Our goal is to work closely with you to ensure we execute your wedding day exactly as you have envisioned. You will be *on time* down the aisle with a perfectly fluffed dress and veil, your wedding party will know where to be and when, you will arrive to a reception space exactly as you imagined it, and we will take care of any hiccups that occur along the way – many times without you even knowing. You and your guests will get to enjoy every special moment of your wedding day while we work seamlessly behind the scenes.

Getting started is easy! Simply reach out so we can chat about exactly what you’re looking for. We’ll set a plan in place that will eliminate many items on your to-do list and we’ll get to work right away. We’re here to take all the hard work you’ve done at planning the wedding so far, polish it up, tie all the details with a bow and produce a magical day that you and your guests will never forget. We look forward to hearing from you!

One meeting/walkthrough at your venue

Unlimited “help!” phone calls

Week-of vendor confirmation calls

Personal wedding day assistance for the Bride

Kathleen is wonderful!

Kathleen was essential in making my special day this month AMAZING. She was extremely organized, detail-oriented, and most importantly, was always willing to hop on the phone with me and brainstorm/talk through anything and EVERYTHING. She has a positive and calming energy that always made me feel at ease and even more excited leading up to my wedding day. I HIGHLY recommend Kathleen. SHE IS THE BEST.

Beyond game changing.

While wedding planning can be ominous and overwhelming, Kathleen has an uncanny ability to do it ALL, execute it flawlessly, and all while keeping you calm, focused and excited. Kathleen has it down to a science. She is organized, insightful, thoughtful, creative, well-connected, and behind the scenes constantly advocating for you as a bride to ensure every vendor is perfectly aligned with your vision and fairly contributing to their task at hand. She is also hilarious, and makes sure you are laughing and having fun throughout the entire process - which is understatedly important! She goes above and beyond. I truly couldn’t imagine my wedding going off as flawlessly as it did without Kathleen. Coordinating a 200 person wedding and taking on so many creative and logistical tasks is no easy feat, but Kathleen did it with so much finesse. She was and is the greatest and I couldn’t recommend her enough.

Best decision when it comes to wedding planning!

I hired Kathleen as a partial planner for my wedding and it was one of the best decisions I have made! She made me feel at ease and provided so much great insight and professional experience. There were multiple times where I would text her due to second guessing different aspects of the wedding and she would promptly respond and immediately relieve me of my stress. Day of - she was AMAZING in making sure everything ran smoothly and according to plan, so I did not have to worry. My wedding day was a rainy/ foggy day and Kathleen literally followed me holding the wet train of my dress/ carrying the veil for the entire time we took pictures outside. Overall - the last thing you want to do on your wedding day is worry or stress- Kathleen literally ensures that you do not have to.
