Intimate Wedding Planning
Thoughtful celebrations built with intention, focused on quality time and life's little luxuries.
A value-driven planning process and thoughtful support for offbeat couples. You get personalized advice, advocacy, logistics, and event management.
We start with vision work to get to the heart of your celebration. This helps us determine your values, examine your options, and decide on a guest list and budget. Next, I'll take you through every step of your planning timeline. I help you navigate relationships with vendors, keep you on track with custom plans and timelines, coordinate the logistics, and help you develop an ambiance. Finally, I'll manage behind the scenes while you celebrate.

Not sure which package is right for you? Super common. That's why you can book no-strings-attached Vision Work before deciding on a service. After you've gained some insight and clarity, you can choose what's best for you (including going it alone!).
Vision Work is a two-on one guided workshop. It takes place in three parts, focusing on your vision/values, budget, and guests. Vision Work lays a strong foundation for the heart of your celebration while we get to know one another. This is also when we get to tour your venue!
We'll start forming relationships with vendors and building the basic structure of your day. Dive into tastings, vendor interviews, and color palettes. Your wedding planning folder keeps us organized.
Now we focus on logistics. We'll finalize your menu and flowers, floor plan, timeline, and more. It's time to start communicating official plans with loved ones and determining final thoughts and details.
Now it's time to enjoy the best day ever. First, we'll make sure we're on the page about the full plan. We'll finish up details like printing vows, seating charts, and communication. I'll coordinate your rehearsal, ceremony, and wedding day while you create lifelong memories. Congrats! Marriage is a beautiful thing.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you work?
I primarily work out of Kansas City, Missouri and Des Moines, Iowa. I consider the Midwest fair game!
Do you do day of coordination?
I don't (I'm all about curating that entire experience). I consider it on a case by case basis though, reach out if you're in a pinch.
How much does it cost?
Wedding planning packages start at $3,500.
I would love to work with you... but I'm not sure I can afford that!
I'm happy to run through a quick budget with you and see how the numbers stack up. I'm the only vendor with you throughout the entire process, who creates and influences the entire day. It takes the average couple 500 hours to plan a wedding. I promise getting good help is worth it!
Only intimate weddings?
Yes! Small is subjective, but a desire for intimacy and quality time is key.
