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 partial-planning package, the bulk of the workload will be on me, but I'll still need some things from you to get the ball rolling.
We'll also schedule our 7 hours of 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!
