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 a laser focus on only your wedding! I prefer a private studio to offer concierge services by meeting clients at their venue, their homes, or a convenient and suitable location.

As Indiana wedding planners our planning philosophy is a unique approach to weddings and events. You don’t have to accept the old adage, “This is how 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?

In planning all these weddings, I’ve learned over the years that no two are exactly alike. At least not with my clients. I’m not your typical event planner; the pretty and the logistics excite me. Schematics, timelines, and to-do lists make me happy – which is good because that is what most clients often dread the most. One of my secret powers is to listen carefully to my clients and understand what they want or need, which is helpful as we make decisions or edit our 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! While I love a well-thought-out written plan, my specialty is going with the flow of new ideas on the fly.

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

When planning your wedding, I advise you to remember your fur babies. If the venue doesn’t allow animals (grrrr), have a photo of your beloved four-legged family member at your reception!  Also, if you can schedule an actual photo with your fur baby while you are dressed up, I guarantee you will be doggone happy!

this could be YOU!

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 glad we hired you.

Our services primarily focus on the Midwest, covering Indiana: Evansville, Jasper, New Harmony, Newburgh, West Baden, French Lick, and Indianapolis. In Kentucky: Owensboro, Henderson, Bowling Green, and Louisville. However, we are available for events outside of these areas.
