We keep you organized and on-track
We will customize a plan with specialized vendors who will be specifically tailored to you and your over-all look, style, and budget. There are many vendors and many decisions to choose from, and that can sometimes be overwhelming, we will take care of this for you. Our goal is to break down the big picture and help guide you in making these decisions. As professional planners, we will help remove the stress of wedding planning, so that you can enjoy the entire process.
We handle the details and communicate for you
We become your liaison for the day. We help so that you can relax and enjoy the day knowing that every detail has carefully been taken care of, whether that means you spend the day getting pampered at the spa, or sipping mimosas in the bridal changing suite.
Wedding Planners are the perfect Third-Party Mediator
During the planning process it is not uncommon for everyone to voice their opinions. We can help navigate through these ideas so that your wedding is truly your vision. We want you to have the wedding you have always dreamed of, so we are here to help with any challenges that may arise.
We take the stress out of Wedding Planning
There is a marked difference in the amount of stress a bride without a wedding planner experiences compared to our brides. The most important thing is that you enjoy the planning process and the big day. The last thing you need is to have to deal with any issues that may come up throughout your wedding. We are here to ensure that you and your family get to live in the moment and enjoy this special experience.
"I knew at a young age that it was important to find a career that would allow me to create lasting memories and bring happiness to others. I am a hopeless romantic, and can think of no better way to create a special memory than bringing two people together in love. I am very passionate about my career, enjoy getting to know each and every one of the couples I work with and encourage them to relax and enjoy the fun and exciting process of planning their special day. Simply put, I love ‘love’ and I am thankful that each day I get to work in an environment that I am truly captivated by."

"I knew early on that planning events, specifically weddings, was the path for me. I can truly think of nothing better than having a reason to celebrate love with family and friends in style. Weddings combine all things beautiful; from the intoxicating smell of flowers drifting through the air, a gorgeous white dress that fits like it was made for you, to the romance felt by two people dancing under the stars. I believe all weddings are special and it is in their differences that each and every wedding is uniquely beautiful. It is in the special details that make the event yours."
Adele began coordinating right after graduating from Gonzaga University. Over the past four years Adele has planned and coordinated over 250 weddings throughout Seattle and San Diego. From planning small parties of 10 to large groups of 300, each has their own vision and personal success story. She has styled everything from rustic outdoor barn weddings, downtown hip, vintage romantic vineyard, to elegant costal beach side chic. Adele is excited to continue working in her dream career and feels lucky every time she gets to participate in a happy couple's big day!
"From a young girl I knew that weddings were destined to be in my future; I love the colors, romance, sparkling candles, and the luscious aroma of the flowers. Most importantly, I love with the idea of uniting two hearts, two people in love, hand in hand, side by side promising to love one another forever. I think two is a magical number... where it all begins. It is precisely the joining of two people who have fallen deeply in love, all that weddings epitomize, that propelled me to be a wedding coordinator. I am so lucky to be in a career that I love to pour my heart and soul into - there is nothing better than loving what you do. I adore the trends, the styles and creating the ‘look’ that represents each and every couple. It takes an organized, detailed, multitasking and prepared mindset. My goal for the planning process is for it to be enjoyable, stress-free, and fun for the couple so that they have the most incredible, memorable and happy day of pure enjoyment and love."
