My name is Vanessa and I am the owner & lead planner for The Traveling Planner! I have been in the wedding industry for 5 years and I've always had a passion for getting to help couple's plan & prepare for their special day. My favorite part of the wedding industry is getting to meet couples from all over the country and getting to learn about their wedding vision! I have experienced over 100 weddings and have seen many different cultures, traditons and themes & I love getting to throw in different ideas as well to the couples. And it's such a pleasure getting to create a friendship with each couple I cross paths with.
My goal for each couple is to make it as seamless & stress free so they don't have to worry about being the point person for the day of. That is where I come in and orchestrate the whole day, without them having to stress!
Aside from weddings, I love getting to travel and explore new places. That is also a big part of why I created this business- to be able to do what I love which is wedding planning & getting to travel to new places!
