At True Mate Weddings, we take your wedding preparations off your shoulders but never out of your hands.  This leaves you free to relax and enjoy the most important day of your lives.  We offer partial planning and wedding management (also known as month of coordination), and custom consultations.  Whether you need help finding wedding venues,wedding singers for live music, photographers or more, we've got you covered.

Our wedding planning process begins with a personal consultation where we get to know the two both of you- your style, your stories and what your vision is. Then I start searching for vendors that match your vision, connect you with them, and from there we start creating the wedding of your dreams.

Along with weddings, we love to plan and help manage events, including; corporate events, anniversaries and bridal parties, etc.
