Big plans into beautiful action

We adore her! Neither of us can plan anything bigger than a date night yet with Brianne we felt completely at ease and comfortable and cared for throughout the whole journey to throwing a wedding for 85 people from all over the country/world — and that’s because anything we didn’t know to do, she took on, and anything we hadn’t thought of doing, she took on. We never had a doubt that everything would be taken care of, thought of, and handled — not just handled, but beautifully handled. I was burdened with NOTHING on the day of our wedding. My husband and I floated through it.

"Truly, our wedding was perfect, and that’s absolutely all thanks to Brianne."

Brianne was beyond incredible when it came to our wedding planning! She is organized, detail-oriented, and always brings her positive attitude to the conversation. Brianne is very communicative (both with us and our vendors!), sets thorough timelines and task lists, and always provided us a clear path to a successful wedding day on our video/in-person check-ins. We always felt like Brianne had our back and had the details covered! Needless to say, it was a stress-free day and we are so grateful for it! We absolutely recommend Brianne!

"We always felt like Brianne had our back and had the details covered!"

Brianne was incredible to work with for our wedding. Leading up to the big day she helped with all the details and decisions, big or small and truly made it a stress free day. A lot goes into planning a wedding and having it all run smoothly and Brianne took care of it all. Guests were even pleased with how on time everything ran and everyone had a great time at the wedding. She even went above and beyond to donate her time to deliver our flowers after our wedding to a local care facility. Overall, a fabulous job done by Stress Free Weddings. Thank you so much!

"She made sure not only Jake and I were stress free the day of the wedding, but our parents too."

We had a very a la carte wedding where nothing came in a package since we had a backyard/farm style wedding on private property. We brought in every individual piece from plates, tables, and chairs, to the venue structures itself including the tent and bathroom. Brianne coordinated the delivery with all our vendors the week leading up to the wedding. We were so glad to have her help with those logistics since we couldn’t be there during the week of vendor deliveries due to work, crafting last minute decor, putting guest details together, or greeting early arriving travelers. On the day of the wedding, Brianne was there every minute of setup. We put all our trust in her so we weren’t there at all for the process, but when we showed up we were impressed! During the wedding events Brianne ran a very smooth order of events. She came very prepared and knew exactly what to do. The primary feedback we got from our guests was that our wedding was so much fun but more importantly, we, as the bride and groom, also looked like we were enjoying ourselves. That would not have happened without our trust in Brianne being in charge!

“Stress Free weddings really did make our week and our day completely stress free!”

- kira & paul

I was frozen with decision fatigue when it came to wedding planning. My friend recommended I talked to Bri and we instantly clicked! She was able to find us the BEST vendors for our day even when we were on at time crunch. I can honestly say our wedding would have been DRASTICALLY different (not in a good way) if it wasn't for Bri. She was there for the rehearsal and day-of making sure everything ran smoothly and taking on both little/big tasks so they didn't fall on our families. Bri was so easy to talk to and reach whenever we needed her. I even had a moment of panic while making decisions and she went out of her way to meet with our vendor and take some of those decisions off of my plate. Just knowing she was there to answer our questions, offer suggestions, and ensure we weren't missing anything was such a stress relief.

"She refused to let us settle for just "ok" and made sure we were getting everything we wanted for our big day."

- julia & jared

We used Brianne for her day of coordination services for our wedding in October. We were so incredibly happy with all the help she was able to provide, she really was essential in tying up all the little details and making sure everything stayed on track all day long. It took an incredible amount of stress off my shoulders on the day and she really allowed me to be able to enjoy every moment of my wedding. She is extremely detail oriented and knows all the ins and outs of the wedding industry and does a wonderful job of coordinating with vendors and making sure everything goes off without a hitch, she is worth every penny!

“She really was essential in tying up all the little details and making sure everything stayed on track all day long.”

Awards & Features

Absolutely! We love when couples getting married have a great support system. However, their recommendations and assistance are not based off experience in the wedding industry. They won’t know all the reputable vendors in your area. Nor will they know if they have a pattern of good communication, reliable service, and their work style. All factors a Master Certified Wedding Planner takes into consideration before offering a recommendation.

Q: Can’t my family and friends help me plan my wedding?

We don’t offer Design Services or rentals but can recommend reputable vendors to make your dream wedding come to life. A Wedding Designer focuses on your overall vision for your wedding day which includes color palette, floral, linens and room layout. They will assist with sourcing the materials to create your wedding aesthetic.

Q: Do you offer Design Services or rentals?

Simply put, a Wedding Coordinator’s job is to help YOU plan YOUR wedding day and help with the execution of the event day from start to finish. A Venue Coordinator is an employee of the venue and is responsible for the set up of the space, confirm all obligations are met by the Venue for each event, and that you as the renter follow the guidelines they require for the space.

Q: What is the difference between a Wedding Coordinator and a Venue Coordinator?

As your Master Certified Wedding Planner my job is to ensure that every detail from start to finish is taken care of for your wedding day. We take the guesswork out of the planning process no matter if you are detail oriented or not. This includes making sure you stay on track with your planning, providing vetted reputable vendors in your area, creating a wedding day timeline, assisting you with the execution of your wedding rehearsal, ceremony and reception, reviewing Vendor contracts, and being a point of contact for your family and Vendors on the wedding weekend.
