Hiring a professional can give you more than peace of mind

Joan Nilsen, Ambiente Wedding & Event Planning

Years in the Business: 28

Specialties: Everything from day-of to full-service planning.

Favorite Extra Touch: Additional lighting—it just illuminates the couple, the venue, the evening, and the guests.

One Planning Tip: Put together a detailed, in-depth timeline—down to every five minutes—and give it to everyone from the vendors to the wedding party. Everyone will be on the same page, and it makes the day much more relaxed.
