Why hire us? Are you the right Wedding Planner for me?
My relationship with my clients is always like a new friendship. Whether you like to email, call, text, meet in person and grab a drink or coffee, I'm here for you. As soon as we book, you will be comforted knowing I'm already planning all of those little details and will keep you updated along the way! Not to mention, I only take ONE wedding or event a week so this ensures your event is my main focus and we can spend those last days finalizing all details.
Do you offer day of or month of coordination?
Let's be honest, there is no such thing as a day of coordinator so I only offer month of coordination for that reason. Over the years, I've wanted to help my couples as much as possible and it isn't in me to just show up the day of to coordinate a wedding. I want to get to know my couples and get involved in as many details as possible to get a better idea of what I need to do the day of. It will also give you reassurance that I have all the details needed to make the day run smooth!
Where do you plan events? Do you Travel?
HHE is based in Ponte Vedra, Florida and serves Amelia Island, Jacksonville, Beaches, Green Cove and St. Augustine.
We are able to travel and frequent the DC/Northern Virginia/Maryland area often!
Whats the difference between you and a venue coordinator?
The best way to explain this is a venue coordinator is hired to take care of the venue during the event and a wedding planner will take care of all vendors involved. If you choose us we will run your rehearsal, put together a timeline that includes ALL vendor information and details, and assist with your layout.
What is your pricing?
Since each event is different, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to determine which
services will best fit your needs. To give you an idea of pricing...
Month of Coordination starts at $1250
Partial Planning starts at $2500
Full Planning starts at $4800
Costs depends on logistics for the day, travel, assistants needed and the amount of time needed for set up.
How did you start your business?
Event planning was always something I enjoyed doing throughout my entire life. I started professionally planning events in college at the University of Maryland, College Park working for the city as their Community Events assistant. I planned everything from the 5K to seasonal Festivals. From there I moved on to working in Marketing and Advertising which and the agency specialized in Casino advertising. It's interesting how similar Marketing and Event Planning can be! I've lived all over the country including San Diego where I worked for another casino advertising agency and the San Diego Botanic Garden, then in Atlanta as a Special Events Manager, to DC as a Conferences and Events Manager for the Humane Society corporate office
and now I solely work on my business here in Ponte Vedra.
Heather Hagin Events officially started the Summer of 2015 and in my first year I booked 21 weddings.
As of now I've planned over 120 events! I've loved every minute since!
Do you offer A la Carte services?
Yes, but only if you book a package. Say you booked a Month of Coordination package and needed help with a few more tasks, then we can talk about a la carte options.
What type of events do you plan?
Everything! Weddings are my bread and butter but I have expanded to smaller events (sometimes its nice to take a break from a full day of planning). I love getting creative with event set up and design so this allows me to try out other designs I have.
What sets you apart from other wedding planners?
I plan every event like I'm throwing my own wedding or party. Sometimes my husband tells me it's too involved, but I want everything to look and feel as perfect as possible. I'm type A and a slight perfectionist ;)
Also we build ideas! Meaning, if you have something you would like built or you saw something on Pinterest you HAD to have at your wedding, we can make it! Lastly, I offer rentals at a huge discount to my couples. This includes candles, lanterns, custom welcome signs, table numbers and SO much more! (contact me to see the full list of rentals)
