Welcome to Not Your Grandmother’s Wedding! We specialize in helping you plan and coordinate your “non-traditional” wedding or commitment ceremony, as well as other events. In other words, we don’t judge you for wanting to wear red instead of white on your wedding day, or if you don’t want a cake, or if you would rather have a hand-fasting ceremony than a religious church service. It is your day to create the celebration you want to remember. We just help you do it!
We offer different packages because everyone is different. Some people just want help with the coordination of the day itself, but want to plan it themselves. Others want help with every step of the planning process. Please check out our website and see what we have to offer. We will work with everyone to fit your personal needs, so please contact us for special pricing and specific packages just for you!

Chrissy was a life saver leading up to the wedding and the day of! Primarily I used Chrissy's services as a day-of-coordinator, however, she was flexible to doing much more. For example, she helped me review other vendors contracts as a second pair of eyes to make sure nothing was overlooked. Chrissy also had contact with all other vendors leading up to the day to be sure everyone was on the same page. She coordinated all deliveries and set ups on the big day. During the reception she facilitated the flow of events with the dj and the event staff at the site. As my now husband put it, you know she is doing a great job because none of the vendors or event staff bothered us with questions during the reception. Chrissy puts the work in ahead of time to understand what you want, and then just handles any situation and answers questions before they get to the bride and groom. We were able to relax and enjoy our day knowing Chrissy had a handle on everything. I would highly recommend Chrissy's services to any couple planning a wedding.Sent on 06/21/2012

My wife and I hired Chrissy to act as a day of coordinator for our wedding a few weeks ago. We met with her 3 times in person and had a number of conversations with her via email. She was professional and prepared in every meeting and anticipated our needs helping us resolve problems BEFORE they occurred. On the day of she acted as an advocate in our absence when the venue had not set up properly and went above and beyond helping my mother-in-law set up the intricate decorations. We had a somewhat non-traditional wedding and Chrissy handled it in stride helping our vision materialize with both our venue and our guests.Sent on 11/05/2011
I would happily recommend Chrissy to anyone that needs her services.

No matter what kind of wedding you're planning, I highly recommend a day-of coordinator to keep all of the little details and stresses from falling on you and your family. My husband and I had a relatively small (60 guests) and uncomplicated (no bridal party, fairly unscheduled reception) wedding, but we still couldn't have managed it without Chrissy.Sent on 12/17/2011
Chrissy was everything we could have hoped for in a coordinator: professional, compassionate, and receptive to our needs and vision. Before our wedding day, she helped us think through the logistical details that wouldn't have crossed our minds. As our wedding day approached, she did a great job of mediating our wishes and our vendors' needs while being sensitive to the level of stress we were under. On our wedding day, Chrissy was a consummate professional. She checked in with us about what was happening behind the scenes without being intrusive and was more than capable during the little snags that are bound to happen. She was helpful in every capacity, such that you'd never know she hadn't been a wedding coordinator forever.
We couldn't have asked for a better coordinator for our wedding, and the fact that Chrissy's services are so inexpensive is mind-boggling. She is the sort of professional one feels one can never pay enough!
