The Wedding Planning Guide
Planning & Event Design
Kelsey & Jake are a husband and wife team capturing love stories, intimate weddings and elopements. We met at a wedding and fell in love. Now, we focus on capturing and preserving wedding day memories with all the feels.
The Bachelor, beer, and adventure are just a few of our favorite things. Oh, yours too? See, we’re practically best friends already. We have two miniature schnauzers, Doc and Yzma (eeez-muh).
Jake is seriously the funniest person you’ll ever meet! He does a Christopher Walker impression better than Christopher Walken and he will be making you laugh all day! As a 3rd grade teacher (aka superhero) during the school year, he has some great tactics for getting those drunk groomsmen in line. He says his 3rd graders have similar attention spans. He loves pizza (and singing songs about it), hockey, and his favorite tv show is Rick and Morty.
Kelsey is honestly the kindest, most endearing person to have with you on your wedding day. You not only get a wedding professional, but basically a bonus bridesmaid!
Her bubbly personality will have you smiling all day long and her expertise will put you at ease on what may be the most important day of your life.
In her spare time, Kelsey enjoys cooking, gardening, camping and hiking. She is honestly the most driven and hard-working person - she puts so much attention into the details of every wedding day, you might actually think she’s one of your bridesmaids.
Our main goal is to make your wedding about YOU and to weave your love story through the details. We obsess about making your wedding day details speak to your story and style.
We offer everything from planning, styling, and coordinating for those who desire complete management of their day. From the invitations to your getaway car, we put together an elite team of professionals to make everything is exactly how YOU want it. With unlimited face-to-face meetings & phone calls, we help you select all vendors, discuss and manage the budget, and help you out with those managing the stress of wedding planning.
For couples who have already planned out their wedding, our trained and experienced wedding coordinators are available to make sure your plans get facilitated without a hitch!
About 6 weeks prior to your wedding, your coordinator will begin familiarizing themselves with your wedding plans. Normally, 1-2 meetings are needed to go over your itinerary and last minute details. On the wedding day, we ensure that your plans are carried out smoothly and discreetly to handle any problems that may arise.
Event Design & Styling
When it comes to managing contracts and making sure all vendors are in-sync, we have you covered. What about the actual look of your special wedding, though?
In addition to planning your event, we'll also design it! From hand-selecting your creative team and designing mood boards to set up all the design elements, we are with you every step of the way. If you have diverse taste, are stumped on how to put everything together, or you simply need someone to release your inner style spirit animal, we've got your covered! It is our goal to make sure every aspect of your wedding or event is infused with your unique personality.
As you browse for inspiration, you will probably be curious as to how it is possible to pull off a gorgeous and elaborate event within your budget. The answer is YES, it is entirely possible, so don't fret - you have experts on your team to guide you through this process! By no means are you in this alone. As your stylists, it is our job to bring your ideas and late night pins to life.
Each wedding we design is different from the next. We have access to a host of suppliers with vintage as well as unique accessories and work with fabulous floral teams to create stunning bouquets, centerpieces, and decor to help you achieve the look you've always dreamed of. If you love antique furniture and details, we can work with you
to find the perfect vintage rentals to match your vision and budget. We have all kinds of styling tools up our sleeves!
Whether you picture a laid back wedding in the woods or a swanky (yes, swanky) black tie affair, we are here to help create an event that will be remembered for decades to come.
Frequently Asked Questions
If we book you for planning, do we get a discount on photography?
YES! With every full service wedding collection booked, we offer a 15% discount on your photography collection with us. We believe in delivering you the whole shabang from bringing your vision to life, to capturing it on your wedding day.
How long do we get an onsite consultant when we book day-of coordinating?
We start the planning process 6 weeks in advance to get to know your unique wedding day. We'll take care of your final timeline, vendor confirmations, confirm final numbers with the caterer, and make sure you are set with final payments. The onsite consultant is then there on your wedding day for up to 10 hours. We coordinate the setup, direct the ceremony processional, manage the reception timeline, and make sure things go as planned.
Do you invoice us for the vendor fees or do we pay them ourselves?
We will invoice all vendor fees so you only have to deal with one vendor - US! By making this so simple and easy, you get to spend that extra time enjoying your engagement.
What makes you different than other wedding planners?
To start, we are artists and storytellers first and foremost. Sure, anyone can put on a wedding, but we specialize in making weddings unique to YOU and your story. We want to know how you met, what your passions are, and what you like to do together so we can incorporate unique wedding details into your day. You aren't a cookie-cutter couple, so why should your wedding be?
What is the retainer to book?
We accept a $500 deposit and signed contract upon booking, and set you up with monthly payments leading up to your wedding day.

They Knocked it Out of the Park
Kelsey did double duty on our wedding as planner and photographer, and she knocked it out of the park!!! She’s kind, accommodating, fun, and so great at finding just the right vendors and helping keep communication going. Sarah, the coordinator who works with Kelsey and Jake, was great and just so sweet! She’s a professional cat herder, I swear! And of course Kelsey and Jake’s photos were gorgeous! Working with two photographers was so lovely, they caught all these different angles that otherwise might have gotten missed
- Norah & Kyle
They're the Total Package
Jake and Kelsey truly were like another bridesmaid, there to help and encourage and laugh alongside us all day. They felt like part of the family by the end of our wedding. Absolutely would recommend this team for wedding planning, photography and videography.
- Ariel & Richard
We Had an Easy Rapport
We so loved Honeybee Weddings! We were hesitant to book a planner from a distance but we could tell from our phone conversation with Kelsey and Jake that we had easy rapport and we would be comfortable with them during the day. Their professionalism, easy-going nature, and quality of work did not disappoint!
