Wedding Planner in Washington, DC

01. THE PROCESS

Wedding planning can get pretty complicated, which is why you need an expert to take care of all the details. I start with the experience you want to create: glam, intimate, classy, elegant? After we decide on the vision, I get down to the logistics: checklists, vendor bookings, timelines, floor plans, budget, and contracts to bring the vision to life. Then, it's the day of your dream wedding where you get to enjoy, while I take care of all the behind-the-scenes plans—and fires to put out—so that you can relax. And all along the process, providing guidance and cheering you on towards a great marriage.

02. THE PLANNER

I'm Madison, a wedding planner and designer based in Washington, DC and beyond. I have worked with the best vendors in town, and know who to recommend based on your personality. I love designing a beautiful wedding, while staying on top of all the logistical details along the way. When I'm not working, you can find me trying on dresses at J.Crew, playing tennis, or watching The Home Edit...which then leads me to reorganizing my whole house.

03. THE PACKAGES

Full Wedding Planning | The full service wedding planning package is for the couple that would like a seamless and fun wedding planning experience. I take on all the details, so that you can make the fun decisions (and enjoy them!). This package is "start-to-finish" planning, meaning I come on in the beginning of the process after you have gotten engaged and am with you until the wedding day. Personally, this is my favorite package as I get to create a custom experience based on your couple personality.
