Who we are: A friendly, fun and flexible group of wedding professionals - what more could you wish for in a
planner or coordinator? Our stellar team of planners and coordinators are ready to help you plan,
coordinate and design your event. We wear many hats: planner, coordinator, designer, mediator,
and often counselor.
We create events that match your taste, budget, and personality. Our team strives to work WITH you

the whole event or just give pointers during the planning, we're here to help you maintain sanity while
planning a memorable event.
Why you need us: Just because you have a ring on your finger, or want to celebrate a special occasion, doesn't mean
you know how to organize and execute an event. And who wants to tackle such a daunting task on
their own? Isn't the point of a celebration to enjoy and not stress over the details? We will sort
through the endless number of tasks while catering to your unique taste and budget. Our industry
relationships also pay off. Our calls always get a quick response and our clients take priority. After
seven years in the wedding and event industry, Wishes! has also earned percentage discounts with
many vendors from florists to rentals.
Where you can find us:
Congratulations on your engagement! Let loose and enjoy the planning and this romantic day!
Being engaged is a special time and goes by so quickly. The day itself is a blur. Don't miss it by
managing your wedding and endless details yourself. Family members or friends are a traditional
option, but do you really want these special people to work on your wedding?
With Wishes! by your side you will enjoy your wedding day as a guest, without all the stresses of setting
up decorations, confirming vendors, or even taking care of minor emergencies throughout the day.
We allow peace of mind so you can focus on what's really important: your family, friends, and the
love of your life.
Packages After many years in the industry, we believe that we have created two packages that represent the
most commonly requested (and needed) services. We do believe that each wedding is unique and
deserves nothing less than personalized attention. If your needs do not fit within these two packages
we can evaluate the scope of your wedding vision...along with your style, personality, and ideas and
create a completely customized package tailored to your individual needs.
Remember.. We collaborate! We're used to many cooks in the kitchen; weddings, especially, are a family
affair. We are more than happy to collaborate with all who want to be part of the planning.
You define our role! We will work with you to handle as much or as little of your wedding as you wish. It's your day, your money. We're there to help you make your vision a reality. We will
partner with you in creating a wedding that will really "wow" and "touch" your family and

Did you Hire a Wedding Coordinator?
YES - Some of the best wedding money we spent, hands down! Our venue offered an on-site person
as well, but they weren't going to do nearly everything we wanted (especially in regards to helping
to stage some items the way we wanted or getting things into our car after the reception, directing
the bridal party, helping store bridal party belongings, etc...). It's a lot of little things you may not
even be thinking about. I didn't have to worry about a thing the week or day of the wedding. We
also had a destination wedding so it was helpful to have a local resource to use as well for vendor
YES - Our Wedding Coordinator provided vendor recommendations, built a VERY comprehensive
timeline and worked with each of the vendors on it. Confirmed vendor arrivals the day before the
wedding (trust me, this isn't something you want to be doing) and oversaw the rehearsal. She and
her 2 assistants worked on setting up some of the decor items we wanted at the reception (this was in
addition to the rental companies, she was on hand to make sure everything was set-up how we
envisioned w/ the rentals, flowers, etc...) We had our ceremony in another location than the
reception so they oversaw the rental companies delivery and set-up of the chairs there, did decor
set-up, etc... Oversaw the drinks/snacks we had for the wedding party since we were taking
additional pictures after the ceremony. She had her own "emergency kit" for dress repairs (my bustle
broke), band-aids (someone got cut. It was simply nice that there was someone there that
