Kimmie & Kelli Date TBD

Puerto Vallarta

Life is a journey, not a destination.

Your Journey Starts Here

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

Kimmie and Kelli you're planning your upcoming 2023 destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta. You're inviting around 60 of your friends and family, but are expecting about 30 to attend.

Because this is such an important event, you want to create a relaxing space for your
nearest and dearest to celebrate your
marriage.

 

With so much to do, you're worried that you
might miss something crucial because it's hard
to know what you don't know. You need an
organized planner, you can trust, to guide you
on your wedding planning journey.

Someone who brings a positive energy, a calming presence, who's invested in your happiness not
just filling a spot on their calendar.

"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 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.

02 Transparency In Who You're Hiring

Others are teams that include multiple planners.

We consist of one lead planner and day-of assistants.

So you'll be elated knowing whom you're working with from the start.

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 I Lead The Charge

Others aren't decisive enough to know when to take charge.

We perfectly balance being easy-going and assertive.

You're relieved knowing you get the best of both worlds when needed.

05 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.

"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."

SO THAT YOUR SOLE FOCUS IS CELEBRATING
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

Alana & Kevin

Alana and Kevin envisioned a guest experience
that intertwined their passions and their favorite
people.

They wanted a planner who would embrace and
support their unique vision. We incorporated elements
of Alana's Hawaiian heritage, their devotion to rescue
animals, and created spaces for guests to make
meaningful connections.

Daniela & Joseph

Daniela and Joseph'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.
