wedding services

Our wedding planning services come from a deep desire to see our engaged couples truly enjoy their wedding day and grow closer through the planning process.  We understand your desire for a fabulous wedding day and what we care most about is you. The most exquisite flowers in the world cannot erase the worry you could feel about how they are getting to the wedding venue and set up if you don’t have someone to rely on. Let us take care of the details so you both can be carefree on your wedding day.

We care about being financially responsible. Our clients spend their wedding budget wisely by prioritizing what is most important to them. We customize all wedding planning prices based on our clients’ individual needs and desires.

Each couple is unique and has different priorities for their wedding, so we customize our services for each couple. Here is an overview of the different ways we can work with you.

full wedding planning, design, and coordination

You each lead full, meaningful lives where you work and play hard.  And now you are getting married!  It's not that you are too busy to plan a wedding, or that your wedding day isn't important. It is very important. The issue is that the wedding you want requires a lot of time, and you would rather spend that time together doing the things you are passionate about. 

You also care about your wedding details. But more than anything, there is a feel that you are going for on your wedding day - an atmosphere or experience that represents you as a couple. You want a thoughtful day where each element and detail contributes to that atmosphere. 

Once we learn about your style, desires and concerns, we will recommend vendors for you to choose from. They are trusted, proven companies that will team with us to create the best wedding day ever.   We will also work with you to design your decor and schedule to give you a gorgeous, stress-free day.  Finally, on your wedding day, we will see to your needs, and the needs of all your family and friends, to ensure a carefree celebration that is beyond words.


partial wedding planning, design and coordination

Couples choose partial planning when they have started the wedding planning process and find that they would like someone to bring it all together. You may have chosen all the vendors for your wedding but now would like help managing them. Or you would like assistance in designing the details or schedule for your wedding day. Or you find planning your wedding is taking up too much time and you want more time with your fiancé, family, and friends. We will work together to customize a plan for how we can free you up to be with your loved ones, and still be involved in the fun parts of the planning process.  


month of coordination

You know the type of wedding you want. You have the time to plan your own wedding, and know the vendors you want to use. You want someone you trust to bring your vision to life and enable you and your families to enjoy your wedding day. 

As you plan your wedding, you will have support from the A. Griffin Events team as you select your vendor team, design your wedding, and arrange the details.  

The reality is that day of coordination always begins months out.  We meet with you three times over the course of your wedding planning as you develop a comprehensive plan for your wedding day.  At one month to your wedding, we take over all vendor communication to ensure you are free to enjoy your celebration.
