I do not have the words to describe how amazing Casey is! We planned our big day at Race & Religious mostly remotely from NYC and thanks to Casey, it was a dream day. First of all, she is absolutely wonderful - so much so that we were sad when it was over (and trust me, we weren't sad about ending wedding planning). We knew from our first call that we had found the right planner. She takes great care and pride in getting to know her couples so that she can focus her talents on helping you create a day that is aligned with your vision and who you are as a couple. We worked with her to find the right plan and then she went above and beyond to make it all happen. Like many couples, we did not have unlimited funds and needed to put in a lot of work to find solutions to match our budget; Casey understood that and was super helpful in her suggestions and approach. We had many last minute things to work through and Casey was a pure professional about helping us tackle them all and not become overwhelmed in the process. Her expertise of the industry and our venue made our day easy. When we were scrambling last minute to finalize certain elements, Casey was wonderful in assisting us and offering great suggestions. One of the biggest stress-inducing parts of our day was having so many "DIY" elements which allowed us to create a wedding that was unique, but also had so many moving parts. We only had a few hours to set up the venue and a lot to coordinate, and I can't tell you how seamless it all went and just how special Casey made the day for us and we will never forget it! Any couple would be lucky to work with her.Jun 15, 2017Verified
Not enough good things could be said about the Nola bride. She did a beautiful service and came up with a very very heartfelt ceremony.Nov 7, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My prices and options cover a wide range and vary by package, with the lowest priced option starting with my lagniappe packages ($95) and my highest priced option starting with my day-of services ($950). I do everything from help you curate the perfect wedding day timeline and managing your RSVP, to event design and day of coordination!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My current process involves a lot of open communication and feedback opportunities for my clients during our time together. It all starts with a free, 30 minute consultation, where we discuss their needs and what services I can provide to them. Then, after figuring out what is best for the client, we move forward with an outline of the work to be done, when they can expect it to be completed, and any details I need from them to make their experience completely unique.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over a decade of experience in the hospitality industry, and venue rep experience at a popular wedding venue here in NOLA. But probably what has been most valuable to my work as a planner has been my experience gained as a Registered Nurse. I have a variety of unique skills that have been awesomely transferable to my planning business, such as I'm great at communicating with people during stressful situations; I think fast on my feet while keeping cool; I'm extremely solution + detail oriented; and I'm good at predicting possible problems, while pre-emptively formulating solutions for them. (Whew!) I'm also one of those rare breeds whose right and left brain operate almost equally, so I've also got a kick-ass creative side and love to use my imagination. I love it!
