When you start planning your wedding, you might not give much thought to the ceremony, but it’s forever my favorite part of each wedding day. We love when couples put just as much attention into their ceremony as they do their reception details. Every couple is unique, with their own love story, experiences and dreams for their marriage, so the ceremony should reflect those beliefs, hopes and experiences
Whether you’re getting ready for your own wedding or thinking about the save the date that’s been hanging on the fridge for months, you might be wondering what the wedding will be like given the current global health situation. With social distancing, gathering limits, masks, and even travel restrictions for international guests, there are a lot of new challenges we’re facing.
At Beauty & the Budget Events, we believe the best weddings are deeply personal. We’re not here to create cookie-cutter weddings where just any couple could get married. Instead, we love weddings that are designed with the couple’s love story and personalities as the focus, weddings that are as unique as the couple. If you agree but you’re not sure how to put your personalities into the design, this one’s for you.

"I would definitely recommend Stephanie! She made it so I didn't have to be asked any questions the day of our wedding which is exactly what I wanted!!!!" - Kelsey, Coordination
“I can't even begin to tell you how great of a job you are doing! I know this wedding will be HUGE and a long travel and just A LOT but you are coming up with such good ideas and staying calm through all of it. Seriously, you are doing SO SO SO wonderful and I could not be a non-bridezilla without you!” - Dakota Dukes, Full Service
"Stephanie was an absolute blessing for our wedding! She was always available when needed, made sure everything was in order and was so kind! Everything went so smoothly on our wedding day and we have Stephanie to thank for that." - Rachael & Michael, Coordination
“Stephanie was awesome! She was our full service planner and went above and beyond, from vendor recommendations, logistics and overall support! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and beautiful. The day was scheduled impeccably and our family and friends are still raving about the whole day! I miss the whole process already, thanks Stephanie!! " - Brittany & Keahi, Full Service
Stephanie was our rock during the entire planning and day of process. She knew exactly when to encourage us to just breathe and not stress about every single little detail. The best thing about working with Stephanie was that it felt like she was not just another vendor, but a friend in our personal circle. She really made sure everything came together so our day could be everything we dreamed. Thank you, Stephanie!!!” - Roscoe & Steph, Full Service
“Stephanie’s theme design workshop was perfect for creating a cohesive vision and making our ideas a beautiful reality! Through the theme design workshop, both of our voices and ideas were heard and recognized. Stephanie was able to blend both of our individual preferences into perfect harmony...definitely recommend this service!!” - Sarah & Ernst, Wedding Design Workshop & Coordination
“Stephaine was AMAZING to work with. She made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch and really helped make it the best day EVER! She was always willing to answer any question I could think of and gave some amazing advice. I had a lot of anxiety about my wedding day but she helped so much that I didn’t have to stress about anything and knew it would be perfect ! Stephaine and her team would be a great addition to any wedding team !” - Katy & Robby, Coordination
“I want you to know that every time I started feeling anxious, that it always went away the minute I saw you. I know I probably wasn't the most "chatty" (let's say?) of brides and I wasn't always sure of some things, but you did a perfect job organizing the day and making the timeline so seamless. Because of you, everyone had so much FUN!” - Amy & Chris, Coordination
“She was on top of everything. She was able to help with all the vendors, the venue, and the decorating. She helped calm down the bride on the wedding day. She gave us food when we were getting pictures done. She helped give us ideas when we asked for decoration ideas. She was so flexible on meetings and extremely nice. When we had a problem, she responded quickly (Sometimes within 10 minutes). Overall she was the most pleasant person to work with. 10/10 for sure!” - Hillary & Andrew, Coordination
“Stephanie was amazing! We highly recommend using her for your big day plans. She truly was thorough in the planning and coordination. We met up multiple times or even did a chat here and there. It help minimize a lot of extra unnecessary stress. On the day of she was on time (early) with her assistant and I didn’t even have to lift a finger (which was huge)! Even after the big day she kept a good communication on what’s next to come and to expect. We highly recommend beauty and budget events for coordinating your big day!” - Shefa & Louis, Coordination
“Stephanie was excellent to work with. From the first meeting until after the ceremony she was prompt, professional, and strove to understand exactly how *we* wanted our wedding to be so that she could ensure that all the details were just so. This was made more difficult by our wedding being mostly DIY, but she put in the work to ensure that everything was setup and coordinated perfectly.” - Brad & Emily, Coordination
“Absolutely amazing! I cannot imagine planning my wedding without Stephanie. She kept me on track, everything was so organized, she thought of all the little details, and made my day run so smoothly. Nothing but great things to say!” - Brittany & Ryan, Coordination
“10/10 Would Recommend Working with Stephanie! Stephanie was the perfect person to help plan our wedding! We did the partial planner package with her, and I couldn't imagine a better counterpart (other than my husband, of course!) in planning our wedding! She was perfect in affirming our decisions, providing guidance when we weren't sure which direction to go, and assuring confidence in all of the details!” - Madison & Zach, Partial Service
“We found Stephanie on Wedding Wire in January of 2019 and hired her as our Day of Coordinator. "Day of" is just a speck of what Stephanie actually does for couples - she is the backbone of the entire communications with vendors and logistics of the ceremony/reception. She is amazing at problem solving and eases any nerves you may have. Stephanie has a knack for answering the questions you never even thought to ask. We could have never asked for a better planner - she is professional, extremely organized, and makes your dream wedding day come true.” - Kellie & Dan, Coordination
