Day-of Coordinating, Planning Tools, Rehearsals, Consulting
If you are doing the planning, check out the Wedding Planning page. There is a Budget, Readings, Rehearsal Guide and link to Marriage License requirements. If you need someone to direct your rehearsal or could use a day-of coordinator on the big day, let's discuss how I can help. If an off-site rehearsal is needed, consider an afternoon tea at my Lafayette Cottage and I will be glad to direct your rehearsal.
A Proper English Tea Party

for your guests and himself! Please call or email for details.
