How it Works

After our initial discovery call (click below to schedule one) I'll send you a mood board and a proposal.
If you decide to hire me, I'll send you a contract and you'll send me a $1,000 deposit.  Once all parties have signed and the deposit has been received, I'll hold your date.  Woo hoo!  You just crossed something off your to-do list!
We'll then schedule an initial call to discuss what you have done so far.  No biggie if you haven't done a thing yet.  
After that and depending on how much you have done, you'll receive a checklist from me with items we'll both need to complete for a successful and FUN event.  If you book the full-service planning package, I'll do pretty much everything with your blessing.  Basically, you get to tell me what you want to do (and what you don't want to do) and I'll provide biweekly updates as time permits.
We'll also schedule our check-ins and keep in consistent touch.  Don't forget that you'll also have unlimited emails and texts from the moment you hire me!
