How do you know if I’m the right planner for you? Read on.
Best of all, she made our day a breeze with her incredible organization & people skills. On all counts (creativity, support, professionalism, value, the list goes on and on), Corinne earns an A+++
Weddings are wonderful - but they can also be incredibly heavy. Between family and friends not fully grasping your "non-traditional" vision, your inner monologue convincing you the location of your wedding will inconvenience your guests and a million and one little details - things can get pretty cloudy.
This is why I come from a place of emotional support. And I lead with getting to know you so that I can help you make decisions that are in your best interest.
We’re Type A planners with Type B energy - we believe in getting a lot done, while keeping things exciting, peaceful, and fun along the way.
Our expertise and logistical prowess give you the freedom to think outside the box. With us in your corner, you’ll never have to worry how your unique and original ideas will come to life.
Since 2012, I've planned hundreds of weddings. But it isn't just my wedding planning experience that will help me shape your wedding weekend -- it's a culmination of everything that came before.
My background is in theater direction and stage management, my education is in communication, and before I fully launched my planning career I spent time as a wedding gown consultant, catering director, paralegal and more.
...from first starting to plan in pre-pandemic times, to navigating a covid postponement,
to making sure day of everything went off without a hitch.
