Planning a wedding can be tricky when you're trying to balance work, school, family… you know, life in general. By bringing Cherry Blossom Planning Factory on board to help with the planning, we promise to meticulously organize every last detail. Whether you've been dreaming about a wedding with 40 guests or 400, we'll help you get through it, one spreadsheet at a time.

OffbeatLeadPicWe're suckers for love, proud of our obsessiveness, and still get a little misty-eyed at every wedding we help plan. We love organizing (duh), obsess over the details, and we make sure all your belongings are safely put away at the end of your wedding. We can pin boutonnieres in our sleep, bustle a dress in minutes, and geek out when it comes to quirky details.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Don’t feel like coming out to each vendor? Not enough time to deal with the 10 different vendors you’re working with and their 100 emails? That’s where we come in.
Because our end of the planning tends to be very technical, we often attract the creative brides and grooms. We listen to your ideas, figure out a way to make them happen within budget, and make sure you're armed with a checklist so you're not stressed all at once. We've been known to host DIY parties to help our couples out, but we also put heavy emphasis on logistics. We'll talk through the timeline together to make sure all the important moments are in there, and then work backwards to make sure hair & make-up are allotted enough time.

Shoot us an email and we can send you a sample Wedding PDF — it's a blueprint for your wedding and showcases how we put our obsessiveness to work for you.

"Best investment of our wedding! We were out-of-towners in the VA Beach area and Crystal was absolutely helpful in all aspects of our wedding. She was very professional and knowledgeable when it came to vendors, budgets, and overall vision of a perfect wedding…" – Theresa + Alvaro, May 2013.

Examples of my work

We regularly update our blog with the weddings we've helped organize, but here's a quick recap of some of the highlights:

  • When a couple's' venue fell through within months of their big day, we swooped in and found a new one within hours (and within budget). Ninjas to the rescue!
  • Rather than a sand ceremony, one of our awesome couples is planning to make a “love potion” complete with beakers, test tubes, and high fives.
  • We’re huge animal lovers and were absolutely delighted when a couple asked if they could have their micro pig be the ring bearer — heck yeah!
  • Often venues have pretty strict rules about what we can do as far as a grand exit is concerned (no sparklers?! no glitter?!). Thankfully we have some pretty creative ideas up our sleeves to make the last few minutes full of energy and perfect for badass photo ops.
  • We’ve been known to pick up clients from the airport and cart them around for a day or two of wedding meetings. All the vendors are pre-qualified to make sure your date is available, and we even go so far as to pack the car with emergency snacks. Michael Jackson sing-a-longs are optional.
