In my younger years, I wanted to be a cheerleader! While I’ve always had tons of spirit, I couldn’t master the 8 counts for the pom squad. So I decided I’ll be my own kind of cheerleader, and will cheer on and support others as best as I can. The event industry has afforded me many opportunities to do just that!

I've really enjoyed what I like to call second planning over the past couple years, which is especially helpful for planners who are solopreneurs. Photographers have been second shooting for years (genius!), and I'm so happy to see that planners are getting in this mindset, as well. It's starting to become a passion of mine, as I get to support fellow planners and be apart of executing successful and memorable events. I'm looking forward to doing more of this, all in the spirit of community over competition. Thus, the release of this information page for planners like you.

Now, for those who may be asking…Sensational Soirees is still here to STAY! :) I'm currently being even more strategic about the type of clients and quantity of events Sensational Soirees takes on per year, so that I never lose the joy in doing what I love and focus more on the quality of events and service. Therefore, when my schedule is free and if you could use some day of support for some of your upcoming events, I’d be happy to help you! Please find more details below.

guidelines & investment

The process of working with me is super simple! Once we’ve confirmed your event date and details and an overview of how I can help you, we’ll execute a contractor agreement. I’ll obtain your 50% retainer, which holds your date on my calendar, and the balance is due the day of the event. Please know your privacy matters to me and is respected! Therefore, I won’t share or post behind the scenes of your event. I’m also happy to review and sign a non-disclousure agreement, should you require it.

Based on the level of support you require, location of the event, and length of time needed, I’m happy to provide you with a quote. My day of support rates start at $25 per hour, with a six hour minimum. Also, if you are double booked for a wedding date, and would like to contract me for event management, flat fees start at $1,000 for 10 hours of service. Invoices are issued via 17hats, and cash, major credit cards, PayPal and Cash App are acceptable methods of payment.
