love from past clients 

— Aubrey & Tyler 

Everything on my wedding day went extremely smooth. Esme was responsive throughout the wedding process and dedicated to making my vision come to life

this could be you

You’ll know if we’re on the same frequency once we’ve connected on a call. If you’re feeling aligned so far, that’s a great sign.


how do we know if you're the right planner for us?

am i going to lose control of the planning and design?

Not at all. The wedding planning and design is done per your vision, not ours. We come in to give you expert recommendations and to help add unique design touches to wow your guests and yourselves. Plus, we're in constant communication throughout the process.

what's reiki healing?

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing therapy. If you go for the holistic option, we’ll have reiki sessions to help balance your energy fields (also called "chakras"), so you feel lighter, centered and at peace.


Working with businesses we know adds so much value to your experience. It is not a requirement, but we prefer to work with the network of creative partners who are familiar to our business. This helps ensure the quality of the services we provide, the aesthetics of our designs, and the overall experience you receive as a client.



Meet Esme Krahn, the wedding planner with a record number of handwritten cards that read “We couldn’t have done it without you”.

A Washington, DC wedding and event planner, designer and creator, Esme’s love for wedding planning started in 2004 and is still going strong 20 years later. She believes in the power of love, in connecting with clients on a personal level, and in attracting incredible clients who appreciate her sense of calm, kindness and patience.

Working with loving couples is a joy for Esme, as is helping her clients feel calm and grounded throughout the wedding planning journey. From narrowing down color palettes to coming up with a fresh and personal take on a classic wedding theme, Esme takes pride in every single detail.

When not planning weddings with her team, Esme enjoys spending time in nature and the company of her husband, Joe, her four children, and two black labs - Jedi & Jyn. She practices yoga and meditation, enjoys learning about the power of crystals, and is an amateur baker in her spare time (Sally's Baking Addiction is her not-so-secret resource!).
