Frequently Asked Questions - What inspires us!
What inspired you to become a wedding/event planner?
I come from a long line of entrepreneurs and have always dreamed of working among them. I am compelled to continue to create success and carry on the family tradition. I went to college in San Francisco where I earned my Bachelors in Design and Merchandising and then later went on to get my Masters in Business Administration. Since then I have been driven to have a career where I can combine my skills in running a business with my love of all things creative.
Weddings in particular inspired me in so many ways. I am a fool for love and feel so lucky to be a part of others celebration of love. Watching as my clients come together to create a family all their own is always a magical experience. I believe in living a passionate life. I want to be inspired by what I do and the people that I do it with. If I get to be a part of the wedding planning process for clients I adore I will be a very happy lady.
What’s your secret? What really makes you different than others in the industry?
With nine years of corporate event planning experience I have learned all that goes into planning a seamless event. During my time in the corporate world I worked on events of all sizes. Planning everything from fashion shows, with Tim Gunn to product launch events with Issac Mizrahi and Petra Nemcova. This experience coupled with my Masters of Business has helped me to develop a work ethic that is known to continually exceed my client’s expectations. Although I love planning events of all kinds, weddings are what truly inspire me. There is nothing better than helping your clients to create breath taking moments that are sure to be everlasting highlights of their wedding day.
How long does it take to plan a wedding?
Most wedding magazines will say that it takes a bride anywhere from 150-300 hours to plan her wedding. That is a lot of time and energy. Our brides lead busy lives and although they want to be involved in the planning process they don’t necessarily have 300 hours to spare. When you work with Your Inspired Event you get to enjoy the creative and fun parts of wedding planning while leaving the logistical details to someone who knows what to expect and how to create a flawlessly executed wedding day.
Will you work the vendors I’ve already chosen?
Of course! One benefit of working with a wedding planner is that we often have great working relationships with other local vendors. We are happy to introduce you to various vendors that we think would be the perfect match for you and compliment your day. If you have already found some, or all, of the vendors you need that is great too! We look forward to working with your team to execute your day as seamlessly as possible.
Do you offer payment plan options?
We require a deposit in order to get started on your event and to hold your event date. The remainder of your balance can be made in payments throughout the planning processes. We make sure the payment process as easy as the rest of your planning.
