THE COST OF YOUR EVENT
What exactly does all of this cost?
I don't know. How can I tell you the price of a wedding we haven't planned yet? The truth is, your wedding (or event!) will cost as much as you'd like it to.
The weddings you see and love here range from $25 - $1000 per person, with the pricing being impacted by the location, the number of guests, menu selections, and your specific taste and style. With such a broad base, where do we begin? Some of our clients like to create the event, and we price it based on the dream. Others come to me with a budget, and we design to that level, always including special little touches that set the day apart from the rest.
All weddings will receive 3 projections to help you understand the way in which your budget can be allocated. This gives us the opportunity to discuss the business side of things in advance and allows you the opportunity to ask questions so that you can truly understand where your money goes, and just how much it buys. We will spend what it takes to create the experience you want, but never more than is necessary. A wedding is a major investment. We will look after your budget as if it were our own.
WHAT DOES PLANNING COST
My team works with a limited number of clients each year, and I personally design and manage each one. Our connect - yours and mine - is absolute and the foundation of all of the work we will be doing together. You will never work with a coordinator, an assistant, or any other representative during the planning process. When you call, I answer. When you IM me, I respond. Tastings, meetings, demos, and more we will do together as needed. Onsite at the time of your event I will be at the helm of a full staff including coordinators, taskmasters, and representatives from all creative partners. But ultimately - it’s you and me. We are in this together.
Pricing is customized based on the scope of work that needs to be done and includes both a retainer and a management fee ranging from 15% - 20%. This fee is applied to the overall cost of the wedding.
Travel expenses, administrative fees, and minimums may apply and will be disclosed for your approval in advance.
MONEY SHOULD BE TALKED ABOUT
I believe that you make your best decisions when you have all of the information. Let's have a direct conversation about your investment. I'll assess what you need, develop an overall budget, and provide you with a custom quote. And remember, we're just talking, but this is where it begins...
