How many consultants are on your team and how do you determine who I will work with for my wedding?

Click here to meet our 4 lead wedding planners! You are welcome to request a preference of the planner you would love to work with. If you do not have a preference, we select your lead planner based on availability, venue and compatibility. Each planner comes with their own talents and experiences that make them specifically fit for your special day.

Why did you start your business? 

Growing up, I always had a passion for organizing events and celebrations! As a 99% extrovert, bringing together the people I loved was the absolute greatest thing on the planet. For 5 years, I worked as the coordinator of a local non-profit organizing large seminars, meetings and events. As one of the first to get married in my friend group, I experienced first hand the difficulty of planning a wedding on a budget and helped friend after friend do the same. At the encouragement of the mother of a friend (whom I planned her entire wedding in 3 days) in 2015 I expanded my passion into a business. Now to date, we have planned over 250 weddings and also had the joy of opening our own venue, Forest Hall at Chatham Mills. Check our website here.

Where do you plan events?

We are based out of Raleigh, NC and most weekends you can find us in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill or Pittsboro (Forest Hall shout out!). We love the opportunity to travel and have planned weddings in California, Montana, Utah, Vermont and more! Our travel fees are very reasonable and only include accommodations for the night before and after and the cost of transportation. We are on the preferred vendors list at many top venues in the area including:

What's the difference between what you do and a venue coordinator/host on the day-of?

Role of venue coordinator/host- Locking and unlocking the building, keeping bathrooms stocked, providing cleaning supplies, controlling lights and temperature, practically anything regarding the functioning of the venue.

Role of wedding planner- Everything else! Setting up decor, keeping the day moving according to timeline, guiding the vendor team, assisting the couple with any personal needs, tipping vendors, packing up personal belongings, solving any difficulties that may arise.

What inspires you?

Every member of the Harmony Weddings team believes service to others is what we were put on this earth to do.  So what could be greater than the opportunity to serve families on one of the most important days of their lives?! We draw daily inspiration from the unique visions of our couples, the creative vendors we are fortunate to work alongside and the joy that weddings bring. 

Do you work with same-sex couples?

Yes, we do! We give our whole hearts to every member of our community. All clients can be sure that they will be treated with nothing but warmth, encouragement, and enthusiasm for their big day.

Are you insured?

Yes!

Do you bring an assistant day-of?

Yes! Weddings under 150 guests and at 1 venue will have 1 assistant in addition to their lead planner. Weddings over 150 guests and/or taking place at 2 venues will be required to add an additional assistant for $250 to their event management package (already included in partial and full packages).

Can we hire you for wedding-related parties such as bridal showers, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners?

Absolutely! We love being involved in these additional events because they allow us to spend even more time with our couples and their families!
