A boutique event-planning business in the DC Metro area. Our approach to weddings is best reflected in our tagline: we get sh*t done.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
APW couples are often down-to-earth folks, planning unique, creative weddings, who just need a bit of guidance and help in the wedding planning process. Part of my motto when it comes to wedding planning is that you should work with vendors who make the experience of planning an event an enjoyable one – and that goes both ways. I, too, want to work with clients who make my job an enjoyable experience, and APWers always do that!!
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
We organize seamless, stress-free weddings and events with a no-pressure attitude. At The Plannery, there are no “shoulds”— our professional, responsive team is here to support each unique client. As friendly, open-minded, down-to-earth planners and coordinators, we’re here to shoulder the stress and insanity so you can relax, enjoy, and party your ass off! We fully support marriage equality, and giddily enjoy planning weddings and other events for everyone.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
My husband is an amazing cook, so I love to eat. I enjoy staying at home and snuggling with my family (yes, I’m getting old). My background in planning comes from producing theatre, so I’m a big theater and musical-theater nerd. I also love reading, dancing, pop-culture, and planning vacations (often years in advance).
What's your favorite book?
1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. After reading this book I started remembering my dreams for the first time, ever. And no, I’m not kidding. Weeeeooooooo.
What's your favorite movie?
Singin’ In The Rain (see non-work-related hobbies and musical nerdom, above)
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Yeah by Usher
