Consulting Services

Here's the thing. I've been in the wedding industry for 8 years now. I know all too well the mental, physical and financial commitment it takes to own and operate a successful wedding venue.

I also know that a venue is the biggest investment anyone can make in this industry. When you have investors breathing down your neck or a banker waiting for your quarterly report, the last thing you want to do is to learn by trial and error.

I know you feel overwhelmed. You feel like you don't have what it takes. But that's the fear talking and you know what?

fear is a liar

You've persevered.

You've climbed ladders. You've built businesses.

now it's time to turn your dreams into reality.

One-on-One Consulting

Maybe you came from the corporate world and the buzzing sound of the wedding industry's profits caught your attention. Or maybe you inherited prime real estate with a blank canvas and you're trying to make business sense of it.

You probably feel lost with a mountain of questions and you're being pulled in a million different directions. All you want is someone to take you by the hand, make a plan, and guide you to profitability. Sounds like a dream come true, right?

INVESTORS ARE COMMITTED. 
BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY IS PURCHASED. 
CONSTRUCTION IS UNDERWAY.

Inventory Sourcing

hop off pinterest, let's chat

I’ve built trusting relationships with our industry’s top inventory wholesalers and am happy to pass along my professional discount. 

With this service I help you decide what furnishings compliment your venue’s overall vibe and speak to your ideal clientele, what sizes and quantities are needed, and what appeals to your budget.  From light fixtures, tables and chairs to glassware and table settings I've got you covered! 

don't fret, friend!

Are you head over heels in love with those cross back chairs but have no clue where to find them or what a good price is? Or maybe you simply need enough tables and chairs to cover your max occupancy; nothing fancy, just functional. What about furnishing your bridal suite, groom’s lounge, and outdoor courtyard - whatcha gonna put there??

Market Analysis

While this statement may have been true for Kevin Costner’s character in the 1989 film Field of Dreams, it certainly is not true for wedding venues. 

Every real estate broker worth their salt will tell you that location is the end all, be all, especially for commercial properties. If you’re currently on the hunt for greener pastures to perfectly perch your wedding venue on then you’ll want to run a marketing report to ensure you’re looking at prime real estate. 

“But how do I run a marketing report?”

Don’t worry, I’ve got ya covered. Because we’re friends, I’ll run a national, regional, and local report that will consist of 60+ pages chock-full of helpful stats. Numbers don’t lie and this report is just what you need to not only prove that you’re searching for real estate in the right area but to aid you in smart marketing and advertising decisions later on down the road.

No doubt you have your hands full with just getting walls up on this big, beautiful dream of yours. My guess is, either you're praying you survive construction or are dreaming of all the pretty design elements you can implement. Hello, tufted linen settee! 

Clearly you don’t have time to be googling into the wee hours of the morning and would love for someone to shoot it to ya straight. 

That’s my cue. 

I pride myself on giving no fluff answers so that we can get down to the bare bones of information you need in order to move the needle forward in your business. 

If you currently have a list of questions keeping you up at night. This is your ticket to phone-a-friend. I promise not to beat around the bush with you if you promise to give me your undivided attention for an hour. Deal? Deal.

Codes, permits, electricity
and water mains, oh my!

But it does come with some sacrifices, one of which is modern conveniences.

While I know we made the right choice in moving outside of the city limits, I was not willing to sacrifice my son’s education. I drive 45 minutes one-way to get him to school every morning. Which means I have a 45 minute drive back home to my cozy office. 

In order to make the most of this time, I created a discounted consultation fee during this drive. So if you still have questions keeping you up at night, need straight-forward answers and if you don’t mind a little road noise from a Jeep then this is the perfect fit for you.
