meet the team - est 2003

My planning studio prefers not to be a big company because we believe in giving our clients the personal attention they deserve when planning weddings. We don’t overbook weekends with multiple wedding events, instead I have laser focus on only your wedding! I prefer to have a private studio, so I can offer concierge services by meeting clients at their venue, their homes, or a location that is convenient and suitable for them.

My planning philosophy is a unique approach to wedding and events. You don’t have to accept the old adage “This is the way it’s always been done.” Let’s break the rules and shake things up! It’s your celebration, don’t you deserve to have it be special and unique, like you?

What I’ve learned in planning all these weddings over the years is that there are no two weddings exactly alike. At least not with my clients. I’m not your typical event planner, both the pretty and the logistics are exciting to me. Schematics, timelines, and to-do lists make me happy – which is good because often that is what most clients dread the most. One of my secret powers is to listen carefully to my clients and understand what they want or need which is super helpful to you as we make decisions or edit your choices. And if you like people who are direct and love to laugh, we’ll be friends.

I’ve been planning events for over a decade and started my career planning disaster response activities. What a great experience transitioning to weddings! Because while I love a well-thought-out written plan, my specialty is to go with the flow and come up with new ideas on the fly.

Serving people is a passion of mine, and making sure people are happy. If you’re not happy, then I’m not finished with my job. You’ll never see me crack under pressure, I’ll always have a smile.

I’m a 7-year-old Australian MultiGen Labradoodle living my best life, stealing socks and giving humans love and attention. I’m also a certified Therapy Dog, so Mama and I go to visit people in nursing homes.

My advice to you when planning your wedding is to not forget your fur babies. If the venue doesn’t allow animals (grrrr), then go ahead and have a photo of your beloved four-legged family member at your reception!  Also if you can schedule getting an actual photo with your fur baby while you are dressed up, I guarantee you will be doggone happy!

"Saundra, you are truly amazing and you go the extra mile to ensure your client is satisfied. I can say our wedding would have been so different if I had not met you. You understand me very well and we are so glad we hired you. We love you!"
