Modern Aisles supports all types of weddings, through light-hearted and detail-oriented services that put your community at the center. We support authentic, powerful celebrations of love. We bring our full selves to the work, and respect and uplift your vision, identity and traditions.

We draw from over five years of wedding planning experience, so we’ve seen every kind of venue and wedding. We will look at your existing plans and questions and provide expert advice that always feels adaptable and responsive to your unique needs. Our favorite couples buck formal traditions and craft a celebration that reflects their unique partnership. Want a brass band to escort you and your boo from your ceremony to your reception? We’ve done that! Ensure your wedding is gender-inclusive? We got you! Plan for a 100-person hora outdoor in a field? We’re ready!

Previous couples have described us as thoughtful, communicative, highly organized, and joyful. We ask lots of questions so we understand your vision. Our goal is to insulate you from any stress on your wedding day, so that you and your closest community get the best gift: presence!

We are a queer and Native-owned company located in Seattle, WA but catering to the whole Northwest and open to travel in the US! We love good bourbon, dogs, good lighting, and adventure. We believe every couple should have access to stress-free, badass wedding planning and coordination. And, we believe in the power of meaningful, authentic celebration! We’d love to work with you. Offbeat couples tend to be our faves.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

Newly engaged, but unsure how to organize your big day? Want a wedding planner that understands pronouns, chosen family, and modern love? We got you! We provide partial planning and day of coordination to all types of couples in the Seattle area and beyond. We have a knack for supporting the logistical and the emotional side of weddings, so that couples – and your closest friends and family – get to fully enjoy the day. As a queer and Native-owned company, we recognize that weddings are about lifting up and celebrating your whole community, so that you all go into the world with a little more joy.

“The value Modern Aisles brought to our wedding absolutely cannot be quantified or measured! Elyse is exceptionally strategic yet remains personal in both communications and approach to planning. We appreciated that she asked about our families, so that she knew who all the key players were, day-of. It put our minds at ease!” -Alex E.
