Q: WHY SHOULD I HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?

A: Unless you enjoy being stressed out, having to tie up loose ends, and being asked a million questions on a day that’s supposed to be relaxing and joyful . . . there really isn’t a good reason NOT to hire a wedding planner.

 

Most of my couples have never had to plan an event for 100+ people. There are so many fun aspects of being engaged and planning a wedding: choosing a dress, having parties thrown in your honor, and hellooooo all the wedding cake samples, to name a few. But it also requires detailed planning, scheduling, task assigning, communication, and organization. You probably haven’t thought about what time the bridesmaids’ bouquets need to be dried off for pictures, or what time the caterer should arrive for setup, who’s going to be in charge of lighting the sparklers for your sendoff, or how your dress is going to get from the hotel to your house the morning after the wedding.

 

And you shouldn’t have to.

 

KJC will work with you to do all those things and so, so much more. Even the most organized and detail-oriented couples need a professional on their team so they can fully relax and soak in such an extraordinary day. That’s where I come in.

A. That’s really up to you! I offer two packages for brides to choose from: Full Service Planning + Consulting and Wedding Management. More information about each package can be found by clicking on the links above.

A: The smallest package I offer is the Wedding Management package. The level of service I provide to my couples typically requires communication at least 4-6 weeks in advance. I’ll come alongside you in those final weeks and begin tying up any loose ends, confirming arrival times with vendors, sending out timelines to wedding party and family members, etc. You can find more information about this package by clicking on the link above.

A: I'm super flattered by your confidence in me! However, I'm currently a one-woman show, so in order to make sure I'm serving you the best I can, you'll need to pick one or the other. I don't want my attention divided on your wedding day, and trying to do both would definitely get chaotic!

A: You bet. I pay sales tax and income tax and I have a business license and business insurance. Anyone not doing those things is putting both you AND themselves at risk.

A: I don’t have any specific policies for weddings, but I find most people are booking 9-18 months in advance.

A: I require a signed contract and a 50% retainer fee up front, with the remaining 50% due one month before the wedding. Once I receive both of those, I’m all yours!

Q: HOW INVOLVED WILL YOU BE IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?

A. That’s really up to you! I offer two different packages for brides to choose from: Full Service Planning + Consulting, or Wedding Management. More information about each package can be found by scrolling up.

 

Q: DO YOU OFFER A “DAY OF” PACKAGE?

A: The smallest package I offer is the Wedding Management Package. The level of service I provide to my couples typically requires communication at least 4-6 weeks in advance.

Q: CAN WE BOOK YOU AS BOTH OUR PHOTOGRAPHER AND WEDDING PLANNER?

A: I'm super flattered by your confidence in me! However, I'm currently a one-woman show, so in order to make sure I'm serving you the best I can, you'll need to pick one or the other. I don't want my attention divided on your wedding day, and trying to do both would definitely get chaotic!

 

Q: ARE YOU RUNNING YOUR BUSINESS LEGALLY?

A: You bet. I pay sales tax and income tax and I have a business license and business insurance. Anyone not doing those things is putting both you AND themselves at risk.

 

Q: HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO YOU BOOK?

A: I don’t have any specific policies for weddings, but I find most people are booking 9-18 months in advance.

 

Q: HOW DO WE OFFICIALLY RESERVE OUR DATE?

A: I require a signed contract and a 50% retainer fee up front, with the remaining 50% due one month before the wedding. Once I receive both of those, I’m all yours!
