Alexis and Katie
There really aren’t enough good things in the world for us to say about Fran. From our first interaction over email to our heartfelt goodbyes at the end of our awesome queer wedding, Fran was there every step of the way, through all our ups and downs with decision-making, vendor-choosing, and general panic. She always had our best interests at heart and got who we were, sometimes better we did than ourselves when caught up in the thick of things.
Although we chose to do a lot of planning ourselves, Fran was there to offer support at every turn and fully embraced our book themed, alternative, geeky, queer celebration and party. Fran accompanied us at multiple venue planning meetings, helped us to find our outfits, and got us back on track when we veered away from our true values. Calling her a planner doesn’t take into account everything she did! Fran was a guide through the unfamiliar world of weddings, a sounding board for ideas and creative projects, the person to push when we needed pushing and to hold our hands when we needed it, a huge supporter when we needed solidarity as LGBTQ folk navigating less inclusive aspects of wedding planning, and sometimes a therapist...
On the day of our event, Fran was especially amazing – a consummate professional navigating behind-the-scenes conflict which we didn’t hear about until after our big day. She made sure that our experience on the day of was nothing short of transcending. In fact, a few of our vendors stated that they would recommend Fran to their clients! We can’t recommend her highly enough and we’ve come to consider her a dear friend. ♥♥♥
