BRINGING JOY, EXCITEMENT & CERTAINTY
I'm a classic PNW native who loves all things Washington: Coffee, mountains, hiking, and evergreen trees. Especially the evergreens. They mean home to me, and that's the whole idea behind Evergreen Weddings.
I believe this season of life is meant for more than just planning a wedding day. It's the time to build the foundation of your own forever home so it is rich and long-lasting, just like an evergreen - which means there is no room for distractions, uncertainty, and overwhelm! I provide the freedom and support to skip the cliche expectations of the industry in order to plan and create the most authentic, momentous celebration that emulates who you are as a couple. Now, let's keep the main thing the main thing and plan an Evergreen Wedding, shall we?
They help you gather your thoughts, establish a budget, then plan the wedding entirely. From vendor acquisition, to full wedding design, to coordinating the day itself - they do it all. Their work begins the moment you sign the contract!
They coordinate the logistics of the wedding that you have planned yourself. They remain in your corner from the day you hire them, but do not participate in vendor acquisition, design, or proposal reviews. Their work begins a few months prior to your Wedding.
The misconception is that a Planner is only a Coordinator, and a Coordinator does just as much as a Planner.
To get the most out of your Planner, it is recommended to make them the very first hire in your wedding planning journey. If they are not the first, then they are often second after the Venue. Since Planners walk you through the beginning phases of wedding planning, it is best to have them on board as soon as possible.
On average, Coordinators are booked 8-12 months in advance, however, they realistically can be hired at any point in the planning process. You are best off to book them sooner than later, though, or else you may miss their availability. As a bonus, they typically provide unlimited email access and therefore can serve as a wealth of knowledge for any questions you may have.
Whether it be a Partial Planner or a Full Service Planner, they are best suited for brides and grooms who have a vision but aren't sure how to execute it. Both services offer guidance at a much deeper level than a Coordinator provides. If you're looking to eliminate all the guesswork, and essentially have somebody tell you how to plan your wedding, a Partial or Full Service Planner is right for you.
Let's keep it simple:
EVERYBODY needs a Wedding Coordinator.
There are so many moving parts to a wedding and the last thing you want to do is be in charge of it all yourself or enlist a family member to do it. You both are trying to enjoy the day, and you both deserve to enjoy the day. But for every DIY route you take, you are also responsible for making it happen and finding solutions for anything that comes up. If you're second guessing your need for a Coordinator, I invite you to read this article I wrote:
50 Reasons to Hire a Coordinator
My husband and I are still in awe of Lacey! Our wedding day was a dream come true and the entire planning process was a breeze and that's all thanks to her.
Immediately after booking her, we felt a huge weight off of our shoulders. Lacey was really thoughtful about the options she presented to us. She took in account our wants and needs. We always felt taken care of and heard. Lacey was always so intentional in her work.
Lacey is one of the best wedding planners I've worked with in the greater Seattle area! I photographed a wedding with her at the Lairmont Manor in Bellingham. She is down to earth, personable and patient. She made the wedding beautiful and ensured the big day ran perfectly. Look no further, HIRE HER.
"My wedding would not have happened if it wasn't for her. She was by my side throughout the whole pandemic and wedding planning process from start to finish. She made sure every detail was what we wanted. She is super easy to talk to and to work with. My day wouldn't have been the same without Lacey! The absolute best!!"
"Our original venue unexpectedly closed for good and we were left scrambling to plan an almost entirely new wedding before August. Lacey was amazing the day we found out. By the end of the day we already had a few new vendors to look at! She took over everything and allowed my husband and I to breathe during those crazy times..."
"Whether it be working with the wedding day timeline, asking for suggestions, or help with decor inspiration she has it covered! Lacey’s passion to help brides plan and coordinate their wedding day is so evident. If you have considered getting a wedding day coordinator or a full planner (or anything in between) Lacey is your gal!"
"Lacey is our newest preferred vendor and we cannot wait to work with her again! Not only is she extremely warm & kind, she is professional and gives great customer service. We appreciate that Lacey communicated clearly and timely - which isn’t necessarily common in this day. We are so thankful for the amazing and precise communication - it’s key to doing business."
"Lacey is the best thing we did for our wedding! She helped us plan not one, not two, but three weddings due to pandemic. I don’t know how we would have gotten through multiple delays without having her there every step. Everything was better than we could have expected and I know she was everywhere smoothing over hiccups vendors. We both love her to pieces!"
"Lacey was the most amazing coordinator and friend throughout this process! Although we only booked her day-of services, she provided so much more over the few months leading up to the wedding. It was literally the perfect most seamless day and that wouldn't have been possible without Lacey. Do yourself a favor and book this gal before her schedule fills up!
"I booked Lacey at the start of wedding planning process, and it was one of the best decisions I made. Lacey was detail-oriented, responsive, and enthusiastic. She made the entire planning process less stressful and particularly the day-of. I can't imagine having had our wedding without her."
"There is not enough positive feedback I can give to explain how amazing Lacey is. From beginning to end she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Always available for any questions that came my way. Everyone raved how blown away they were by her professionalism and all around how prepared she was. Beyond thankful she was available on our wedding day. Hands down the best!!!!"
"Lacey's help allowed me to enjoy my wedding day without worry! She was so much fun to celebrate with. You will spend a lot of time with your coordinator, so it's important to choose someone fun! Lacey makes the whole process seamless, from understanding your vision to perfecting every detail. You will not be disappointed. She will help you make your big day a dream without all the stress!"
