Meet Your Planner


Hi! I'm Bri, lover of weddings & pretty things. My brain says analytical and my heart says dreamer, so when it comes to planning your fairytale wedding, I can help bring it to life in design, while also making sure the day runs smooth, so you don't have to worry about a thing.  Every wedding is a fairytale storybook come to life, and I've been referred to as a Fairy Godmother to my past couples - bringing their dreams into existence, completely stress-free for them! 

I know planning a wedding can be overwhelming and you may be stuck trying to figure out how to plan the day you’ve been dreaming of since you were 12, all while dealing with pressure from your family and trying not to spend your entire life savings on this one day. I get it. Planning a wedding should be exciting and fun but sometimes the stress and anxiety of all the details coming together can start to add up!  That’s where we step in… let us allow you to enjoy the fun parts while we handle the rest. A [wedding-day] dream is a wish your heart makes, and your [wedding day] Fairy Godmother is ready to help you have the best day ever, with your very own, unique glass slipper.

Frequently asked questions

How did you develop your prices?

Our pricing is custom to each individual couple, based on what you need and want in your planning. The starting prices were developed with our average couple in mind, and designed around the time we spend with each couple during wedding week, the time we take preparing for your event prior to, and the level of personalization that goes into each package. We take only a limited number of weddings per year so we can help each couple with a personalized touch.

How does this work, exactly?

On a discovery call, we'll talk for about 20 minutes, in which I will ask you questions and you will ask me questions. From there, I'll send over a custom proposal and decide on a package that is best fo your needs in your planning process!

Who do you work with?

We believe that all love should be celebrated equally and wholeheartedly! Based in Raleigh North Carolina, we love triangle weddings of all types, shapes, sizes, and colors, and love traveling for couples who want a team they can trust with every detail. We've planned weddings in Annapolis, MD and Farmville, VA, and look forward to exploring new places with future couples!

What's the difference between full planning & limited planning?

Full planning is exactly that; We swoop in from the very beginning to help the busy couple find the venue, attend all vendor meetings, design the feeling of the day, and execute all the details through to the end. Limited planning puts a little more power in the couples hands, but we're here to guide and advise along the way, attending limited vendor meetings, and making wedding week as stress-free and as enjoyable as we can for our couples.
