It takes more than a killer Pinterest board & binging on SYTTD to seamlessly produce a multi-thousand dollar celebration — especially during a pandemic.
At 10 years old, I slayed my first D.C. wedding, as a caterer's assistant.
Not only do I love a fabulous affair, it's the behind-the-scenes logistics, hard work, and secret sauce that goes into making the magic — that I thrive on.
If you are scrambling and wondering how to plan a wedding amidst an uncertain world,
you're in the right place
Hi! I'm Veronica, the OG wedding planner for savvy brides.
A brain split between art and analytics turned out to be the perfect foundation to become a budding event planner and designer.
I'm a fast-thinker, a Type-A with equal use of my left and right brain (yup, a rare breed): I grew up in suburbs of Washington D.C, raised on books, dance, music, proper etiquette, and spent my weekends at auditions for musical theatre.
Yup, I’m a sucker for sheet music and have been know to belt out Annie's “Tomorrow” at the drop of a hat.
Years since I started my own event planning firm, and gaining the experience of traveling producing weddings and events around the world. I noticed how much the more weddings changed the more they’ve stayed the same.
With limited or no experience, I understand the downsides of planning your own wedding.
Let's Get Started
You are told “It’s your special day, do what YOU want to do” … so you are. But your hands are full coping with postponements, new restrictions that are in place, family drama and global pandemic stress it's making you want to rip out your hair.
Financial concerns, confusion, frustration, anger and disappointment often come right along with the excitement of planning a wedding – and I knew there was something I could do to help couples with these challenges.
As a true hospitality generalist, I’ve taken my 30 years of experience in catering, hotels, event planning and design and created a virtual wedding planning website to help brides and grooms juggle all the moving parts [including your budget] so you can plan a dream wedding that last only hours but is remembered for a lifetime.
If you want to pull off a wedding you can be proud of, without breaking the bank. Cue the confetti, pop a bottle of champs — do a little dance and shout YAAAAS!
Good news — you're in the right place. I got you!
