Owner and Lead Planner + Designer
“We hired HDE for our August 2018 wedding at the House of the Seven Gables in Salem. I honestly don't know how to even start explaining how perfect the entire experience was. The venue is essentially just a plot of land, so everything had to be brought on - the tent, caterer, tables, chairs, flowers - everything..."
Hiring a wedding planner is extremely beneficial if you and your fiance want to truly enjoy your wedding day! As your wedding planner, we are with you every step of the way, depending on the package you choose. This means that you have out unlimited professional advice and assistance throughout the entire planning process.
We are your friend, encourager, stress-reliever, and unbiased opinion when things get sticky with family and all these decisions. Planning a wedding takes countless hours, so why not have a professional wedding planner on your vendor team to lead the process for you!
We can’t stress enough how different the roles are of an Event Manager/Event Coordinator working for a venue and an independent Wedding Planner. The venue manager does just that, they work for the venue. They are there to oversee that everything within the venue goes well. If they have an in-house caterer then their main focus is on executing the food and beverage portion of the wedding, including managing the waitstaff.
When you hire an independent wedding planner you have a professional working directly for you! We are there to plan out all of the logistics, recommend and manage your vendors throughout the entire planning process, and on the day of we are there to ensure setup is being done according to plan, that all design and floral installations are going smoothly and to be the liaison between you and all your vendors, including the venue so you can truly enjoy your day, stress fee.
We specialize in Full Service Wedding Planning + Event Design, but we also offer a Partial Planning Package and our signature Wedding Day Management Package. However, we do also offer other packages including custom packages based off what you are looking for, as well as A La Carte offerings.
A majority of our clients actually live out of state and even across the country! When you are planning a wedding in a different geographical area than where you live, hiring a wedding planner is crucial. You won’t regret having a planner on your team who is located in the area of your wedding. Our knowledge, experience and vendor relationships will make for a smooth planning process. We will also be your “boots on the ground” and be able to attend vendor meetings on your behalf.
