I am an experienced event planner who can help you plan your event from start to finish. I can make sure all details are included, help make venue and design decisions, find vendors, negotiate good rates to maximize your budget for the best results, and handle all of the stress and hard work on Event Day so you can enjoy it! Services range from full service to piece by piece consultation based on what you need! I'm even happy to sit with you to discuss your event plans and help you think through the details that you can then take home and handle yourself. I can work within your needs and budget.
Price Range: $100 and up
What to Expect
Venue Selection - Let's find the perfect place for your event! Somewhere that fits within your budget and location parameters and will provide the perfect backdrop for what you envision. I have experience negotiating with venues and reviewing event contracts so I can help you understand those tricky documents.
Vendor Research and selection - What do you need for your event? Catering, flowers, tables and chairs, entertainment, etc. I can walk you through the options and help you find the right vendors to provide for your event. Again, my experience negotiating and contracting will help you get the best deal and lend peace of mind that you're best interests are being protected.
Budgeting - Let's put together a financial plan for your event. I can help you create a realistic budget for your event and then I will help you stay on track with your spending!
Design - Do you have a mental image of what you want your event to look like but need help making it happen? OR do you have a pinterest board with more ideas than you know what to do with? I can work with you to take your ideas (big or small) and turn them in to a cohesive event design that works within that budget.
Event Execution - If you have never managed an event before, you would be surprised how many last minute things come up in the days leading up to and the day of an event. I would be there to take care of all of that and to ensure that all of our plans come to life to as expected so you can actually enjoy yourself!
Event Follow Up - Don't want to stay after the party to assist with clean up? Who's going to deal with all those invoices coming in? Want to see a reconciled budget to show exactly where your money went? I can wrap up the event through to the very last detail.
I worked as an events planner for a corporation for 5 years before returning to school for my MBA. After graduate school, my husband and I started a family and welcomed our two boys. Now as a part time stay at home mom, I love to get out and meet new people and use my skills (both event experience and business education) to help plan and manage excellent events for individuals and companies alike.
