When I first met Shelli, I was not really sure whether I should hire a wedding planner. I was planning to have a intimate wedding of only ~40 guests and felt like I should be able to do most things on my own, but I definitely needed help with the design and decoration part. I was one of those brides who had seen too many Instagram photos of gorgeous weddings and I wanted mine to be just as pretty. Shelli was able to come up with a custom package for me focusing on only the things I needed help with and letting me do the rest. This way, she was there when I needed her, but I did not end up spending an ...
