    The Rising Fern Experience

    The Vision and Design Phase


    Shortly after booking, we will schedule a virtual or in-person meeting to get to know more about you and your wedding vision. We will ask a series of questions to learn more about your preferences, needs, and budget. The Vision Meeting will last approximately 3 hours.

    The Planning Phase


    Using the information gathered at our Vision Meeting, we will begin collecting quotes from vendors that best match your preferences and vision. We typically begin searching for vendors that align with your top priority. We will provide thorough communication with each of your vendors through the entire process.

    The Event Management Phase


    About two months prior to your wedding, we will conduct a final venue walkthrough, review floor plans, event flow, and have a final details meeting where we will confirm the wedding day timeline and review essential details.

    The Event Production Phase


    After months of planning and communicating with vendors, we will direct your ceremony rehearsal and be present on your wedding day to ensure everything we've planned is going off without a hitch so you can fully enjoy all of the magical moments!
