Planning a wedding is stressful despite endless help, flexible budgets and talented teamwork. Our couples tend to have the best engagement experience when they keep their purpose front and center - the love they have for one another.
Let's be honest, hiccups happen. We've encountered rain on wedding day, pandemic disruptions, volatile family dynamics, and highly sought-after vendors already booked on our couple's date.
We understand hopes for perfection. However, we enjoy working with couples that lean into life as an journey and something to be enjoyed.
If weather control or "miracle worker" is what you're looking for in a wedding planner, we won't be a good fit.
I understand the excitement and the natural urge to rush, book vendor after vendor and calm anxiety by "just getting it checked off the list"
At Storybook, we prefer to plan steadily while providing ample room for design and idea development. We've created a beautiful and balanced process that ensures we don't miss or overlook a detail.
The Storybook process fulfills each aspect of the planning experience with grace and meticulousness, while simultaneously honoring necessary breaks and recharging of yourself, your planner and vendors as well. If your goal is to simply check off your to-do's as quickly as possible, we may not be the best fit.
Next, we dive straight into the design and concepts — what your wedding will look like, what guests will feel, and what’s most important to you. These concepts will be the cornerstone of everything – floral, cuisine, and culture. This meeting allows us to collaborate and make sure we’re all on the same page.
Once we have grasped your design vision, we begin curating a custom list of trusted vendors. Thorough vetting processes and consultations over champagne help us conclude and contract our talent team.
At the 3-6 month mark, we start getting into the day-of nitty gritty. We’ll handle speeches, bus transportation, hotel coordination, and all of the things that make the event run smoothly.
For Coordination Clients, this is where we begin.
On the wedding day, our team is on site and ready to handle every detail. We align each role and responsibility strategically to ensure that you have our full attention at any given moment throughout the day. Extra wedding and planning assistants are on site to help with steaming dresses, directing guests, relaying information to Nicole.
Depending on the size of the wedding, we have anywhere from 1-4 assistants present.
Whether you’re planning a small, hometown event with 20 of your closest friends and family, we’re here to see it through.
At Storybook, we value timeless design. So much so that it makes up one of the four facets of our planning process. If you believe in timeless design too, we would love to share 20 beautiful color palettes, carefully curated, just for you.
