Design Focused Wedding Planning.
People would enjoy wedding planning a lot more if they had fun along the way.
Celebratory. Client partnership is very much about ENJOYING THE JOURNEY AS MUCH AS THE ACTUAL DAY.
focuses on experience and innovation, rather than formula and routine.
I maintain a commitment to a smaller clientele. this allows for greater awareness to detail & attention to each client. above all, it nurtures relationships that extend beyond planning.
After seven years, I closed the doors to care for my family. I spent the next two years as a stay-at-home Mom; but the ideas could not be stopped.
As I boiled water for Mac-n-Cheese, a business plan hatched in iPhone notes - one aimed at using the knowledge I had gained over 15 years as a wedding professional to support more couples - those seeking a full service approach, but also those who wanted to plan on their own..
THEN LIFE THREW A CURVE BALL...
It all began with a little problem — an average of 75 couples each year would inquire, and I could rarely accommodate more than five to ten to uphold my commitment to service.
I value each inquiry as special and unique, so I knew I had to expand my service line. Expansion meant supporting more couples in designing amazing weddings. I began listening to client inquiries, shifting focus to their specific needs, and was in the early stages of rebranding my business and changing the name to reflect this expansion.
What does all of this mean for you?
It means I have built a wedding planning and design service exactly for you.
I continue to partner with couples in my signature full service capacity, but have now taken the methods from that service and broken them down into two additional offerings available to couples who want to plan on their own.
There were many points when I was sure my time as a wedding planner had ended. But a little voice spoke up daily inside, reminding me of my love of collaboration with clients to make their dreams come to life.
As fate would have it, opportunity came knocking twice during that time. First, I was presented with the incredible opportunity to plan my first destination wedding.
Second, I was asked to come out of retirement to plan a Newport, RI wedding. I took both.
I began my career in events in 2008 working for one of the region's most well-respected caterers.
During my time there I held roles in sales, management, marketing, and assisted in opening new venues. That role included creating sales processes and collateral, educating the venue team, selecting furniture, developing contracts and in some cases, full build outs from blueprint plans, creating logos and so much more.
I was the first event manager for the Providence Public Library once we completed their renovation to an event space.
I began my own company in 2012 as
G L A S S event planning offering full service and day of coordination.
In 2021, I expanded my service line and rebranded under Elizabeth Lutz Boutique Design & Event Planning.
