How We Work

What is it like to work with Unique Event Designs?  What style of communication can we expect?  What's the vibe? How does this work?

First, know that I absolutely love what I do. All of it.

I believe that wedding planning and event design is a collaboration on all levels.  First, we talk through the broad strokes of who you are and what you want from your experience. What do you want the event to look like, to feel like?  We start with sweeping gestures; seasonality, the time of day, possible locations. Next, we apply a sensory approach as we begin to explore colors, textures, sounds, and smells that you want to be featured.  Slowly, these elements come together to create an immersive experience that can only be described as utterly you.

The environment we create together is the most important thing.  We live in a visual society.  What your space looks like matters.  The things people will see and hear touch and taste matter!  This is where we will start, and where we will spend the bulk of our time.  While we will seek inspiration from wedding blogs, magazines, Pinterest, and Instagram, your wedding must be your own!  And for that reason, some of our designs will be sketched or described, and not seen in real life.  Scared? Don't be!  This is where we do our best work, and it's in these moments that you allow yourself to be delighted and surprised.

Our partners will bring together the absolute finest linens, chairs, and florals.  We set the mood with lighting.  All of the parts come together and establish the whole, working in unison so that walking into your room is like coming home, but to a world that has bent to your will.

And yet for people to remember this event, and hail it as one of the greatest nights of their lives, we need to plan the day from their perspective.  Once the design is done, we walk through the day as if we were your guests. Every interaction is a touchpoint.  And so we ask the questions...

  • What are we saying to your guests with your save the date and invitation suite?  

  • How user-friendly is your website?  

  • Have we created experiences? 

  • What opportunities do we take to show them they are valued and loved? 

  • How are they greeted, and what are they served?   

  • Have we dazzled them with the food, and surprised them with entertainment?   

  • How do we move them from experience to experience throughout the evening?

Layer upon layer.  Moment by moment.  A sight to sound, sound to smell, smell to touch, touch to taste.

And there, in the midst of it all, is you.  Surrounded by the people and things you love most.

Just as you should be.

What Do I Do?

Whatever is necessary.


Everything is unlimited; phone calls, emails, text messages, and in-person meetings.  Some of our clients are very tech-social and like to share via Instant Messaging.  Others prefer in-person meetings over coffee or lunch.  Whatever works for you is what we will do.  We will have phone calls.  We will have meetings.  We will text, trade, and hopefully play.  This is supposed to be fun, people.  Let's have a good time! 

But let's also respect the work we are doing together.  Communication is constant and comprehensive.  Any inquiries and questions will be responded to within 24 hours. Proposals and contracts will be reviewed and sent to you clean, with utter transparency.  I am here for you, always.  

Creative Partners

The world is shrinking, and the very best people are at your fingertips online.  Over the years, I have had the opportunity to develop relationships with the most insanely talented creatives.  There is one common thread that we all share; we are obsessed with what we do!


Together, we work as a team.  And that team is always changing based on the style and needs of the client we serve.  As I learn more about you, I will place you with the vendors best suited to exceed your expectations. Trust that each person who joins our team is a master of their craft.


Our creative partners are our lifeline; the backbone upon which we build our events.  Together we share ideas, support one another, and work in a way that allows us to stretch, grow, and create.  We will place you with the right people at the right time, in order to create a just-right outcome.  Want a look at some of the teams, brands, and creatives we love?   CLICK HERE!

Have a relationship with someone we've yet to work with?  We will welcome them with open arms.  You trust them, and we trust you!  Therefore, we welcome them to the planning family and are thrilled to have them on our team.
