    The Rising Fern Experience

    The Vision & Budget Phase

    Shortly after booking, we will schedule a virtual or in-person meeting to get to know more about you, your wedding vision, and create wedding budget. 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 & Design 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. During this phase, we will work together to put together beautiful design boards to create a cohesive wedding theme and design!

    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!
