Why Hire an Event Planner?

I am quick to assess needs and develop a rapport with clients. My clients and I have multiple conversations to assure detailed advance preparation with appropriate timeline flexibility. I am an attentive listener and, as our conversations progress, clients know they can trust me to help them plan and enjoy a memorable celebration. Equally important, I initiate budget discussions early in the planning process to keep expectations reasonable, offer creative options and budget for unanticipated costs.
Molly demonstrates excellence in professionalism, approaching challenges with the greatest respect, quick thinking to resolve problems, and is detail oriented to better troubleshoot issues as they arise.
DIY floral arrangements are a popular trend in weddings. Couples often feel they can "handle" DIY floral. Sometimes that’s true. However, it often becomes a bigger, more time consuming and expensive proposition resulting in 500 mason jars no one know what to do with! My floral package offers florals at a reasonable cost, incorporating the clients’ input on design and ordering - again ensuring no unpleasant surprises. Over-the-top floral arrangements usually result in over-the-top budget busters. And hands up for anyone who has ever attended an event where they never saw the person sitting across from them because the floral arrangement was enormous! What happens to that arrangement when the event is over?
My experience has shown that beautiful floral arranging does not have to be oversized and over budget. I work with clients to learn their floral preferences, budget and, as important, venue scale to be sure that the floral arrangements add the perfect touch. In some cases, for the budget and eco-friendly it is possible to repurpose decor - even florals. That’s why clients need me.

This package is the perfect solution for clients who have already planned the event, or plans to manage this themselves, but wants to really enjoy the day ahead and let someone else worry about the details and ensure it all flows according to your vision. I provide some areas of support prior to the wedding to help you ‘cut to the chase’ of getting what’s most important done and provide insight and recommendations across various aspects of planning and event management.

Gourmet S'mores Bar Package


S’mores bar, what’s that? Well let me just tell you this is not your typical “grab a stick, grab a marshmallow, and head to the bonfire.” No, that would be boring. This gourmet s’mores bar consists of:
  • Cookie Butter
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jam
  • Nutella

No need to stress or worry about the mess - leave that to me!

(included for 2 hours)
