Your wedding will likely be the biggest and most important event you ever host.  No matter how simple or over-the-top your plans may be, none of it will happen on its own.  There will be hundreds of decisions to make along with hours and hours of research, shopping and planning to get you to the big day.  

Every wedding is as unique as the couple it unites and the same is true for the services needed.  Whatever level of assistance you need, Storybook will be able to provide. Fees are based on just the services you need ~ if you don’t need it, you won’t pay for it.

You may have noticed that most wedding designers don't list their prices, instead asking you to contact them for a quote. I've put my fees right up front and I hope you appreciate that. Remembering that all services are tailored to your specific needs, vision and budget, here is a sampling of how Storybook can help tell your love story, your way.*

The Prologue ~ Introduction
Our first one-hour meeting is complimentary. We need to spend some time together just seeing if we are a match. I believe that during your wedding planning, and especially on the day itself, you should be surrounded by people you can completely trust and who really 'get you.' I would be delighted and honored to be that person for you.

Chapter One ~ Design and Resource Service
Maybe you just need help to get the ball rolling…I’d love to brainstorm with you, sharing my design knowledge, resources and experience. The goal of this two-three hour meeting would be to develop a look and feel for your wedding and identify potential venues and vendors that would work well within your vision and your budget.  Two to three weeks following the meeting you would receive an inspiration board and resource list to help as you complete your planning. (Design and Resource Services, $475 with additional hours @$50 each; fee applicable to purchase of Complete Design & Management package)

A Short Story ~ Partial Design & Management Services
You have an overall vision for your wedding day and have booked some vendors but feel a little lost. Storybook can enter the planning process to assist with additional design concepts, organizational decisions, recommendation of vendors, review of contracts, etc. I become the main contact on your behalf, completing the remainder of the planning including management of the rehearsal and wedding day.  (Partial Design & Management Services, from $2,450)
The Fairy Tale ~ Complete Design and Management Services
You are a busy couple that needs help from beginning to end ~ designing the overall aesthetic of the day, booking and working with all vendors, managing the wedding day and hundreds of other details in between. Storybook will work with you from the save-the-dates to the final dance, handling every aspect of designing and managing your picture-perfect wedding day. (Complete Design and Management Services, from $3,650)

The Final Chapter ~ Day-Of Services
As of Fall 2017, our Day-Of Services have been discontinued in order to better focus on our Complete and Partial Design clients.
