Together, we craft timeless memories down to the last detail. Let us make your wedding everything you want it to be and more.

First and foremost, we listen to our clients and find connections that result in more than working relationships, but also in friendships. Therefore, when we plan your wedding, we are literally planning a wedding for a friend, with the same level of care and attention. We personalize your big day, down to the very last detail. We delight in surprising you with small personal touches in the design or the extras that make our brides feel cherished and our grooms feel pampered and appreciated. We are not satisfied with simply meeting expectation. We always strive to exceed them and give our clients our very best, every time.

Our couples enjoy exceptional customer service, with support by text, phone or email from day one. We are very responsive and pride ourselves in answering questions and resolving issues in a timely manner and to the complete satisfaction of our clients. Our full service package price includes the complete list of a la carte times, but it doesn't just stop there. We will happily provide any service that our couples require, most within the price of the package. Plus, couples who opt for our full service package may select a free ad-on to include in their package.

When Perfectly Planned Events is responsible for your wedding, you and your wedding are our top priorties. We never overbook ourselves, so that we can devote the time and attention that you deserve. Rest assured, you will have our undivided attention and we will work on your wedding just as hard as we would on our own!

Joshua MaC
Joshua MaC
Designer and Certified Event/Wedding Planner

Joshua is our wedding designer and planner, a Certified Event Planner, Certified Wedding Planner, and one half of Perfectly Planned Events. He is a long-time wedding designer/planner who's style and eye for tasteful and elegant decor has made him the go-to wedding planner for friends and family for decades. He has experience with religious and non-religious weddings as well as a great deal of experience with LGBT weddings. He is even ordained to perform ceremonies.

Joshua's wedding designs are never cookie cutter. He prides himself on crafting unique, one-of-a-kind wedding designs that you won't see anywhere else. He does this partly by handmaking elements of the decor so that they are truly special and unlike anything you will find anywhere else. You might say that is our trademark or calling card...Joshua's lovingly and carefully crafted handmade decor.

He takes the time to speak with each couple in detail and get to know them on a personal level. He doesn't stop at prefabricated questionnaires, but instead prefers to sit down, face-to-face, with couples and speak with them as though they are friends, because they are...or they will be by their wedding date! And, he will plan your wedding as though he is your best friend, where every single detail is equally as important as the last.

Joshua is also exceptional at wedding management. He thrives under pressure and is a quick problem solver who thinks outside of the box to handle those inevitable last minute foibles, although we also work very hard to minimize those to the greatest extent possible. He is always prepared with a tool box that contains anything we could possible need to deal with any situation that arises. So, you can rest assured that when you hire us to plan your wedding, you're hiring a company that will truly handle the stress for you before and during your big day.

Joshua is committed to bringing out the personality of every couple in their wedding decor and design. While he is happy to lend his unique perspective and flair to your wedding, he strives first and foremost to simply develop your vision of your dream wedding. We are in the business of making wedding dreams come true, and there is nobody more suited to do that than Perfectly Planned Events and Joshua MaC Designs.
