Heather + Parker

“When people ask my husband and I what our favorite part of wedding planning was, we both look at each other with certainty and declare in unison, “Hiring Alex.” To say that Alex went “above and beyond” is a tremendous understatement. Alex was our: strategic planner, authentic designer, non-judgmental financial advisor, comedienne and provider of hilarious memes, empathetic confidante & therapist, fierce and focused director, emergency bustle expert, personal waitress & bartender, and all things (pre and day of) wedding spirit guide go-to gal. Alex has mastered a system for keeping her clients up to date in real time, eliminating the stress and anxiety of figuring out “what’s next.” She has a trusted network of vendor partners and friends with different price points and styles, and while she provides her own recommendations – she encourages her clients to bring their own favorites to the table to compare services. I could not be happier with the group of vendors that we ended up working with – from pre-wedding customer service to the actual services, each recommended vendor absolutely met and exceeded our expectations. One of the most impressive parts of our experience with Alex is how she tailored the experience of planning to fit our personalities and lifestyle. As busy professionals, we didn’t have time for phone or video calls, to meet up, or even to meet with vendors. Alex understood this and led us through the process ENTIRELY through email. Yes, you read that right. Seriously. We didn’t even do a cake tasting – believe us when we say you can trust Alex and her recommendations 110%. Our first and only phone call with Alex was a few weeks before the big day, and our first bigggg hug was on our wedding day. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, I had some apprehension about the funky color palette we originally chose (in my heart, I knew I loved it – but my head kept telling me different – to go more neutral/muted). Alex provided an immense amount of reassurance and reminded me to trust her – that it would be amazing. I built an updated vision board leading up to the big day to try to ease my mind and shared it with her + our florist – they validated the design and couldn’t stop talking about how excited they were. My anxiety shifted into excitement, and ultimately – on our wedding day – total awe. When the day came and I finally got to see everything, I couldn’t believe my eyes – it was like everything we wanted and MORE. It was personal, uniquely “us” – and embodied the words + feelings Alex asked us to give her to describe our ideal day from the first moments we started working with her. It was perfect and we are STILL so obsessed with the design and the details. Our family and friends had the very best things to say about our ceremony and reception – and we owe a significant portion of that praise to Alex. She took our hopes, dreams, and vision for our day and turned them into a reality. We will miss our regular “talk to you soon!” emails, and working with Alex to create the most beautiful day of our lives thus far – but we look forward to working with her in the future to help coordinate travel arrangements. If you are having any anxiety about choosing a planner, your design, or anything wedding-related at all – trust me when I say that Alex is your girl. She’s got you. We would choose her over and over and over again. We <3 you, Alex!”
