Full Planning + Design
You’re engaged(!), but wondering where to start planning and how you’ll find the time to do it. From the beginning, we’ll help you zero in on your style, priorities and budget, and help build a team of vendors who fit your taste and vision. We’ll guide you through every decision, while ensuring that your celebration reflects you as a couple.
You’ve selected some of your key vendors, but are feeling stuck and overwhelmed. You may be wondering what’s next or what you might be forgetting. With partial planning, we will review what you have planned so far and what decisions still need to be made. This package allows you to have our assistance where needed, whether that be vendor selection, design direction and/or support for your other wedding weekend events.
Do you have other planning needs not covered here? Let us know! We create a custom package based on the needs of each of our clients.
Our process starts with a conversation. Let’s talk!

I couldn’t have been happier! I got married in September in the Hudson Valley and chose Bethany/Modern Kicks for our wedding coordinator. I wasn’t sure if we needed someone but decided that it would be worth it to not have to worry about details and logistics at the wedding. It was probably the best choice I made throughout the entire wedding planning process! Bethany has a few different planning options (full time, partial planning and then month of) depending on what you need. She I went with month of but she helped to advise as I hired each vendor - giving me thoughtful opinions throughout. When she came on I was able to hand off so much of the logistical work and knowing nothing would slip through the cracks was such a relief.Sent on 12/03/2018
Beyond her organizational help, Bethany’s creative talent is incredible. She really works with the your vision for the day and helps bring that to life. I was so impressed by her past work that I knew I also didn’t need to plan EVERYTHING, that she would hop in and fill in the missing pieces beautifully. Lastly, she is also really fun and brings a wonderfully calm presence to the crazy that can arise the week and day of a wedding. You really can’t go wrong choosing Bethany/Modern Kicks!

Dream Hudson Valley Wedding Realized
“Without Bethany, all this amazingness would not exist.” This was our standard line during the cocktail hour of our wedding. Our guests kept coming up to us in droves remarking how much they loved the details of the day so far and things were just getting started. To this day, we want to rewind and do it all over again. “It” would not have been possible without Bethany and her team. We wanted to create a unique celebration that would be remembered forever by our guests as one of the best weddings they’ve been to. Bethany helped us deliver the dream and vision into reality. From each phone call, site visit, vision board and design update - working with Bethany was stress-free, fun and exciting. Guests even told my wife, Liz, that she was the ‘most chill bride ever’ on our wedding day and, again, Bethany deserves a lot of the credit here. Her mastery of the day-of details were impeccable. The weather threw us a curveball and Bethany figured out how to reorganize the cocktail hour in a moment’s notice. There were countless details that would’ve gone overlooked and moments not capitalized on if we hadn’t had her help on our wedding day.Sent on 12/31/2018
However, by far the best part of working with Bethany and her team was on the design of our wedding. With a few Pinterest boards, color selections and risks we wanted to take - Bethany’s vision created something we wouldn’t have thought of in a million years, turning a unique space (Basilica Hudson) into our fairytale for a night. We can’t recommend Bethany enough to all of our friends and family. From a balloon and disco ball installation above a black & white check dance floor to hidden ice cream cones in our photo booth backdrop, we’ll be dreaming about the best night of our lives for eternity.

I only wish we could choose 10 stars or more for Bethany. I don't think there is any other wedding planner who could perform the miracles that Bethany did. 12 days before our daughters wedding, the venue we booked 9 months ago confirmed that they would not be ready in time for our may 5th event. We panicked, Bethany worked. And worked and worked and worked!! Not only did she work tirelessly and efficiently , she did it all with a smile and the most calming demeanor possible. New venue, new caterer, rentals of everything including tents, bathrooms, dishes, kitchen equipment, buses etc. She also notified all previously booked vendors of changes and made arrangements for them to now work at new venue. Everyday Bethany picked away at a long list of changes and additions. She put us in touch with a fabulous caterer, Brandon from hunt and harvest, who created a perfect menu and the most delicious food. This was all done in 12 days!! She did in a week and a half what most planners do in a year or two and all the while a smile on her face. Onthe day of the wedding, the very large wedding party had hair and makeup done while Bethany coordinated the most spectacular wedding. Any glitch was met with no problem, we can easily handle this. Guests at the wedding repeatedly told us this was by far the most fabulous wedding ever! I just can't imagine how Bethany did all this, but I am convinced that she broke a record with our 12 day wedding! Thank you, thank you, thank you Bethany for giving our kids the very best day of their livesSent on 05/10/2018
