Northern Virginia Wedding Planner

Wedding Planning Reinvented.

Your wedding planning journey is meant to be exciting and enjoyable. Unfortunately, the demands of day-to-day life combined with the stress that comes with planning a huge event can be overwhelming.

Our holistic approach to wedding planning includes guided meditations, affirmations, and Reiki healing sessions. This alone makes us different from any Northern Virginia or Washington D.C. Wedding Planner team.

The result? Feel centered, grounded, and empowered!

Get ready to feel happy and radiant beyond your wedding day!


Esme’s personal experience dealing with stress and exhaustion led her to create a unique wedding planning process that incorporates holistic methods as a part of her clients’ experience.

Reiki - Your New Best Friend

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing therapy. The goal is to balance your energy fields and unblock them.

During a Reiki session, a warm and soothing energy flows from the practitioner’s hands to the client. Though typically administered in-person by way of a soft touch. Our couples receive Reiki sessions as a part of our Holistic planning service.

After a session you’ll feel lighter, centered, and at peace!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation that promotes emotional and physical healing. During a Reiki session, a warm and soothing energy flows from the practitioner’s hands to the client. Though typically administered in-person by way of a soft touch, Reiki healing can also be done at a distance. Our couples receive Reiki sessions as a part of our Holistic planning service.

DO YOU ONLY DO HOLISTIC PLANNING?

The short answer is “no!" We offer traditional wedding planning services and also have years of experience planning multicultural events that showcase our couples’ ethnicity and heritage. Hablamos español!

We offer full planning, wedding design, and wedding management services.

With the full planning package, we manage every planning stage - from concept to execution - so that you’re able to spend more time focusing on your everyday life. On your wedding day, your only focus is to enjoy each moment while we execute everything we planned and designed for months. 

What wedding planning services do you offer?

Our wedding management service is offered on a limited basis. Our assistance includes wedding planning coaching calls, tying up all the loose ends with your vendors, designing the wedding day logistics, managing the wedding timeline and executing the day as planned.

how far in advance we should book your services?

It's highly recommended that you reach out to us before starting any of the wedding planning process. Our calendar books quickly during and right after engagement season, which is between Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day. We recommend that you inquire as soon as possible to secure your date. 

DO WE HAVE TO WORK WITH the VENDORS YOU RECOMMEND?

For destination weddings, yes. We do ask you to work with our vendors. Working with businesses we know adds so much value to your experience. For weddings within the US, this 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.

cAN you plan destination weddings in other countries other than greece and mexico?

Of course we can. As soon as we know which amazing wedding destination it's on your mind, we'll follow the our process to plan weddings abroad, no matter where in the world you'd like to say "I do"!

There are many wedding planners out there, but there is only one Esme. She is simply the best!!!!
