Life is a journey, not a destination.

Your Journey Starts Here

Danielle & Haman's Wedding by @damorewedo Aurelia D'Amore Photography

Kaitlin and Chris, you're planning your upcoming 2023 wedding in the Texas Hill Country. You're inviting around 300 of your closest friends and family to celebrate your marriage.

Because this is such an important time, you want to focus on each other and not the day-
to-day planning.

You're worried your limited planning time will
leave you feeling overwhelmed, and you want
to destress and enjoy your engagement. You
need an organized planner, you can trust, to
guide you on your wedding planning journey.

Someone experienced who'll keep you on budget,
help you turn your ideas into reality, and
candidly communicate how to best achieve
your goals.

"Helayne is everything we did not know we needed."

"She brought up things I never would have imagined needing for our wedding day. And the thought that I would not have to figure everything out all on my own was so relieving. She made it clear the only thing I would need to worry about the wedding was having the most spectacular time - and it was!"

DEVIN, BRIDE

01 Saving You 200 Hours On Your Journey

Wedding planning isn't just about the destination but the journey. So, to ensure you're heading down the right path, I'll guide you on that journey from beginning to end.

By keeping you on track every step of the way, no large or small detail will be missed. And while you focus on work or spending personal time with friends or family, I'll be behind the scenes reviewing contracts, communicating with vendors, and creating timelines.

When your wedding day arrives, you'll walk into it carefree, certain that the plans we've created are running smoothly under my watchful eye.

02 A Structured Process From A Meticulous Planner

Ask any couple I've worked with, and they'll tell you I run a tight ship. As a former teacher, it's ingrained in me. And since 2013, when I decided to pursue wedding planning full time, I've easily applied those traits to wedding planning.

For example, I have a "lesson plan" for every phase of the planning process. I maintain positivity and patience while being organized. I don't shy away from difficult conversations, and I always have a backup plan to present.

In other words, the skills of my past have proven invaluable to creating a stress-less planning experience - and a more enjoyable wedding day.

03 Experience Your Wedding Day As Your Guests Will

To enjoy your wedding day, you need to enjoy the planning process. Hence, why I named my company The Road to Marriage (TRTM).

As your journey's project manager, my job is to use the skills attained over nine years of wedding planning to guide you to a seamless wedding day.

From clarifying every step of the planning process to making sure you're hydrated during portraits on a hot summer's day, I'll take care of you along the way.

04 Creating Your Personal & Cohesive Wedding

While some couples hire planners because of their specific style, my couples hire me because I create weddings that reflect them. This is why you'll never see me diminish your ideas by telling you to change color palettes or rethink your invitation design.

Instead, I'll listen closely to your vision and recommend the right creative partners to bring it to life. And when prompted, I'll provide suggestions based on my experience to help you further create a meaningful and cohesive-looking wedding.

05 Recommending Creative Partners & Communicating Your Vision

Every couple I work with, whether full-service or event management, receives help choosing vendors, And while you might be able to secure some vendors on your own, let me save you time, effort, and headache by recommending the right ones that match your needs and budget from the get-go.

Before presenting you with options, I'll confirm what vendors are available and help you schedule visits. And after you've hired them, I'll communicate your vision to them on your behalf.

"Helayne did not disappoint."

"A priority for me in choosing a wedding planner was having someone who would have recommendations for creative and reliable vendors."

YOU HOLD THE POWER

I'll Help You Manage It

As your planner, it's my responsibility and privilege to guide you through the planning process to ultimately create a wedding that you, and your guests, will love.

 

I Promise To Guide You Before (And On) Your Wedding Day

SO THAT YOUR SOLE FOCUS IS CELEBRATING
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Laura & Dan

Laura and Dan's priorities centered around
creating memories with their guests. It was
hard being separated because of the pandemic,
and they wanted their wedding to be a chance
for everyone to come together.

We created a wedding day reflective of their
priorities and values.

Ellen & Hants

Ellen and Hants envisioned a guest experience that
intertwined their passions and their favorite people.

They wanted a planner who would have suggestions
on how to combine all the exciting ideas they had
for their wedding. We incorporated Ellen's love of
flowers with Hants' love of music and created spaces
for their guests to make meaningful connections.

I Promise To Respect Your Budget

BY ONLY RECOMMENDING THE SERVICES YOU NEED AND
THE VENDORS THAT COMPLIMENT YOUR VISION
