Hiring your wedding planner is one of the most critical decisions when thinking about your special day. Your wedding planner needs to be a person you feel comfortable talking to, listens and internalizes your concerns, and understands your vision.

They are problem solvers and are meant to take the stress away so that you can concentrate on enjoying yourself and spending time with your guests who have traveled to celebrate with you. A wedding planner will also ensure that no detail goes amiss and may be able to save you money by keeping to a budget.

The award-winning team at Rafanelli Events has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and even named one of the US’s top wedding planners by Harper’s Bazaar. They have led the concept and design for numerous celebrity weddings and state dinners and continue to ensure every wedding is centered around their clients’ needs. They understand that this is your day, your dream, and your time to shine. Let them help embrace and surpass the visions you have of your dream wedding. From the engagement party to the rehearsal dinner and the big day itself, they will be on hand for as much or as little as you require.
