I love spending time doing research for my clients. I am continually looking for new or renovated event venues, creative florists, talented photographers, great musicians and other wedding industry professionals, who would make a wedding or special event unique and beautiful. We are very fortunate in the North Texas to have so much to choose from.
For the busy couples that are planning their weddings, it may be overwhelming to do the research on venues and vendors, and this is where a professional planner can step in and help. Having years of experience, we know exactly what to look for and what questions to ask.
We constantly visit venues and learn everything about what they provide and what their costs are, so we can then present a variety of suggestions to our clients and save them a great amount of time and leg work.
Here are a few venues I recently visited or worked with that I want to highlight for you.
