partial planning service

You've made significant progress in hiring your wedding vendors. Your planning checklist is looking good. It's actually not as bad as you thought!

But as time goes on, it seems like there's a lot of decisions yet to be made. And now you're kind of stuck.



You’re feeling the stress of keeping it together.
All by yourself.

Of course, you’re re-evaluating things and wondering if there was another way to find the support & reassurance you’re missing.

Any resemblance toyour reality is pure coincidence...

YOU’RE REACHING OUT TO MULTIPLE VENDORS WHO SEEM unINTERESTED IN GETTING BACK TO YOU.

YOU’RE FEELING LONELY IN THE PROCESS AND, ON TOP OF THAT, YOU’RE SECOND-GUESSING YOURSELF.

YOU’RE WONDERING IF WHAT YOU’VE DONE SO FAR IS GOING TO WORK OUT.

It’s natural for you to feel frustrated when

We feel for you.

OUR MISSION

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 traveling, 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!).
