My job as a wedding planner is like being a guide in the wedding wilderness. I know where we need to go and the best way to get us there, but most importantly I know where not tread.
For many years, I received calls from sweet couples who wanted, and frankly needed my help. Regrettably my fees were not in their budgets. It upset me to turn them away, knowing they would be wandering through the wedding wilderness alone. My Coaching service was born out of the desire to help those couples. It is my way to help and guide couples who need a help getting started, or who need a lot of help but simply don’t have the room in their budget for me. With Coaching, I can provide them with a safety net.
I nudge them in the right direction and provide a lifeline, without bankrupting myself or detracting from my other clients. Coaching provides a framework. For a few hours of my time, we create a game plan, you ask questions and let me play devil’s advocate about your plans. Additionally I make vendor recommendations who I know will meet and exceed your expectations. Then off you go, back into the wedding wilderness, to do the rest by yourself. If you get horribly lost, the service includes a few calls or emails to use when you truly need me.
It is not glamorous and I miss out on being at the wedding (my favorite part!) I cannot lie, Coaching is not my favorite service. But the reason is purely selfish. I love spending time getting to know my clients and creating a day just for them. Being there to see it all come together is icing on the cake (so to speak.) I take comfort knowing that coaching fills a void. It allows me to help couples who might otherwise have wandered in the wedding wilderness all alone.
If this sounds like you reach out, I’d love to help get you started!
I love getting to know my clients – finding out what makes them happy, what they love in life and about each other. I combine this knowledge with my experience to create your perfect wedding. I hope you will allow me the privilege of helping you create your perfect wedding.
