Why hire a wedding planner? There are many benefits. Wedding planners act as a support system and are there to assist in helping make your wedding planning decisions. Whether it’s dealing with contracting vendors, choosing colors and decorations, a planner has experience with running numerous events. You can count on her to ensure no details are overlooked or forgotten. Planning a destination wedding? A wedding planner can save you time and unnecessary travel expenses, for she’s already established relationships with vendors. She can research packages, attend meetings, or review contracts in advance on your behalf. Most important, a wedding planner serves as a ‘point person’ on the day of the wedding. That means that you, and all your family and friends involved in the wedding can simply relax and take it all in, exactly as you’re meant to do!
Hiring a wedding planner who works exclusively within your chosen wedding venue also includes a few additional perks. Johanna knows exactly what Castle Farms provides that is included with your reservation. She also knows what’s available for rent, and in what specific quantities. The end result? With Johanna as your Wedding Planner, you’ll save time and money. She’s also familiar with our reception halls. Having seen numerous different styled events in each venue, she’ll be able to assist in setting any room to best advantage for any possible guest count. She’s also worked numerous events with each of the vendors on our Preferred Service Providers list. Johanna knows what each provides, and what each requires from Castle Farms. Combine her skills and knowledge in Wedding Planning with the beauty and elegance of the Castle itself, and Johanna makes an excellent asset for your wedding day!
