We have been planning weddings in Philadelphia for 16 years and are both local Philly girls that know the ins and outs of the industry here. We love this City! We take on a select number of weddings each year to ensure our couples are getting close personal attention and see we are invested in their weddings like they’re our own. Building relationships that extend past the wedding weekend is so important to us. Getting the call to plan for a sibling or friend from the wedding party makes it that much more special.

What is your best advice for engaged couples?
Enjoy it! It all goes by quickly and being engaged is such a fun part of your lives before that next big chapter. Wedding planning should be fun. Book your vendors as soon as your venue and date are selected. This allows you to have the most options available to you and to ensure you secure the best team for your day. Afterwards, you can enjoy some down time before the planning gets into full swing.

What do you think is essential for any wedding?
A day that reflects the couple is the most important aspect to give friends and family a glimpse into what makes your relationship what it is. Not losing site of what the day is about, the marriage itself, and the joining of your lives. Your guests will feel the love and personal touches that make the day extra special. And of course an open bar and a great band to keep the high energy throughout the night!

What is the most gratifying part of your business?
Being a part of one of the most special days in a couples (and families) lives is so rewarding. It’s amazing to see the time, energy and thoughtfulness of the planning come to life that day. Being able to share in the love and joy felt by everyone is so special to be a part of and hard not to get all the emotions, even as a vendor! We love, love!
What three words describe you or your business best?
Dedicated, Relatable, Attentive
How far in advance should couples book your business?
Typically we are booked for weddings one to one and a half years in advance of the date. Even if you are only looking for a month-of planner, don’t wait! You should still book your planner at the same time you secure your other vendors.
