Questions 

Joanna & Lee - JHP 2022-2.jpg

What is your background with wedding planning and why should I hire you?

Having a qualified wedding planner and coordinator will determine the success of your wedding, and nothing is more important then making sure you hire the right company and planner. With over eight years in the wedding & events business, Victoria has assisted nearly 100 couples in planning their wedding. Working for companies to include The Bald Head Island Club, Brier Creek Country Club, Carolina Trace Country Club and The Carolina Club of Chapel Hill, Victoria has been able to learn not only the business of planning events, but the business of delivering successful events. Her experience in event sales, management & coordination and design, while working for these companies, has allowed her to pinpoint what it takes to successfully deliver a wedding so that both the couple and guests are blissfully happy!

Why do I need a wedding planner, if my venue provides a venue host? 

Coordinators for venues are there to make sure that everything is running smoothly at the venue. They are the behind-the-scenes hero making sure that everything they promised you, is being delivered correctly and running smoothly. However, as much as they want to be 100% there to support you, they do have other responsibilities. As your wedding planner and coordinator, you and your wedding is our sole focus. We will make sure that not only you are happy (and stress free!), but your guests are where they need to be (and enjoying themselves!), and your outside vendors (bakery, florist, band, etc.) are getting things done (and on time!). To put it simply, we are the behind-the-scenes hero for you!  

Is there a minimum budget required in order to book your services? What are your pricings? 

We work with all budgets! We do however suggest that our Full Planning & Coordination couples have a minimum budget of $40,000 or $300-$350/per guest (this includes venue, catering, photography, etc.) to allow for us to have a comfortable and enjoyable planning experience. If you are looking to manage the budget and design coordination yourself, your wedding budget is not taken into account on our end, and our Wedding Management package may be better suited for what you are looking for. Our Full Planning & Coordination package begins at $3,800 and Wedding Management (beginning 3-months out) package begins at $1,750. All of our package pricings are determined based on your overall guest count, venue location and whether you have multiple venues (different ceremony and locations venues). 

Do you travel? Do you work with out of town couples? 

Yes! We love to travel! Growing up a military child, Victoria had the opportunity to travel all over the United States and overseas, so this opportunity is always a joy! Depending on the location, there may be additional travel fees associated with your package, but we try to keep our packages competitive to account for this. And yes, we do work with couples who do not live in the RDU area. A lot of our couples find us through social media, showcases and referrals, so through this, they are not always located near us. This is not a concern though! If traveling for meetings is not always doable, we are able to meet via facetime. Even when it comes time to do tastings and tabletops design meetings, we can make this works as well!
