I remember when I got engaged, I was over the moon, out of my mind excited to be marrying Joethan. All of that excitement eventually fizzled into worry and angst over planning a huge event. In my full time job, I planned events for 1,000 people, but planning your own wedding is a different kind of event planning. I had hopes that I could do it myself, but that thought became humorous when I actually started planning.
Deciding to hire Chelsea as the wedding designer and planner was the best decision I made amongst the hundreds of wedding decisions that had to be made. Budget was tight for us, but Chelsea assured me that she worked with every kind of budget and she definitely held true to that. I knew how I wanted my wedding to feel, but I didn't know how to get there. Chelsea came in at the perfect time and executed every bit of my vision! She worked hand in hand with me, helping me think through pivotal decisions before actually making them. Her experience in event planning made her advice stand out above everyone else's (everyone has an opinion in this process!). She was more than just a sounding board. She shopped with me, budgeted with me, and talked me through all the moments when I was about to fall apart. Thanks to Chelsea, when my wedding day arrived I was stress free, worry free, and on cloud nine.
Had I not worked with Chelsea, my wedding would have been a backyard BBQ with a little decor here and there. If you take a look at my wedding photos you will see that my wedding far surpassed a backyard BBQ. My wedding felt magical and every detail of that is owed to Chelsea!
