Full Service Wedding Planner in Washington, DC

01. The Process

Wedding planning can get pretty complicated, which is why you need an experienced expert to take care of all the details. We have created a process that creates a seamless (and simple) experience for our clients so they can enjoy their engagement with their loved one. Our full-service wedding planning package is broken into three parts: planning, design, and coordination. We have found that by including these three parts of the process, we can produce a beautiful, seamless, and of course, fun wedding experience for you and your guests. 

02. The Planner

Our owner, Madison, is a wedding planner and designer based in Washington, DC. She trained under 5+ different wedding planners in the area, and has picked the best strategies to incorporate into her own company, Madison Avenue Events. Her values are kindness, professionalism, and sophistication, which creates great client relations, but also great relationships with her list of spectacular vendors. In her spare time, you can find her trying dresses on at J.Crew, playing tennis, and watching The Home Edit...and then probably reorganizing her whole house. 

03. What Makes Us Different

There are a variety of wedding planners on the market, so why should you select us? We offer a variety of benefits to our clients that other planners typically don't offer. 

First, we have a full team of planners. Many companies are a one-woman show, but we are a four-women show! We brainstorm and collaborate behind the scenes, because we believe that two minds are better than one (or in our case, four)!

Second, Madison studied event design at the Event Leadership Institute. This is a unique skillset that not all planners have. Some planners look through the lens of logistics only, but we look through lens of what is going to create the most aesthetic experience that is unique to each couple. This is how we differentiate your wedding from the other ones you have seen. 

Third, we are all trained planners. We didn't wake up one day and decide that we just want to plan weddings, Madison ensured that each team member completes a certification through the Planner Life Academy.

"The best in the business. Madison has been such a light in our lives since planning our wedding. Not only does she take the time and is very flexible with all the changing variables but she also makes sure to work with our budget. We are new to the area and having her and her connections have made this wedding process so enjoyable!! After our first meeting with her we knew that she was going to put her all into the wedding planning, she is very passionate about what she does and her work shows for it!! We would be lost without her never ending help!"
