Out of State Couples

I have become quite adept at working with couples - straight and gay - who live in other states but plan to marry in Massachusetts and have a wedding with a number of family and friends traveling from other states as well. I get questions on how the planning works so here's a brief explanation:
  • Like with all potential clients, we have an initial meeting (in this case, it's a phone meeting) to discuss your needs and where I can explain my services and how I can help.
  • When I have a clear picture of your needs, I begin research and start sending vendor options: venues, officiants, photographers, hotels, etc. Sometimes I will go to venues and take digital photos to help the couple make the most informed decision.
  • Couples then let me know what they like and what they do not and I set up meetings and a discounted hotel room block for your wedding guests.
  • Ideally, the couple will plan a visit to Massachusetts where we have a series of marathon meetings and site visits with vendors and venues I know and trust. My goal is to send you back to your home state with an enormous sense of relief and satisfaction that many of your logistical needs have been met.
  • Contracts and payments are negotiated by me though contracts are between the couple and the vendor.
  • I then work with the couple on the more personal side of wedding planning, providing advice on decisions such as invitations, music selections, gift bags, etc.
  • Couples let me know if they need anything at all and I find a way to make it happen.
  • Couple often doesn't come back to Massachusetts again until a day or two before their wedding at which point I bring them to get their marriage license and waiver of the 3 day wait.
  • Your wedding is absolutely perfect and stunning and everyone is incredibly happy.
If it is sounds pretty easy, that's my goal for my clients. I've worked with several dozen couples from other states to make this all come together fluidly and beautifully.
