I am not your average wedding planner.



I believe that your wedding will be an amazing, emotional, important day, but that it’s just the beginning of your journey.

I believe that marriage should be equal for everyone.

I believe you should create memories and enjoy the moments; you shouldn’t spend your wedding day watching the minutes.

I believe in having the wedding that you want, not the one the industry tells you to have.

I believe not everyone wants to plan a wedding; some people just want to get married.

I believe in sanity.

And practicality.

And love.

I don’t cook. I do swear.

Sometimes my hair is blue.

Let's be friends. Read less

As a high-strung, panic-prone control freak, making sure my wedding went off without a hitch was a high priority for me. Well, that didn't happen, but you can't ever bank on the weather in Seattle! And really, we all know there's no such thing as a hitch-free event. bec was SUPERB. She took the time to really Get our vision so she would have a good idea what we would want when issues came up day-of. She made the day flow for us and our guests, helped ensure everyone was on the same page, solved those inevitable problems that popped up (like moving our photobooth backdrop to prevent the sun & heat further-melting the cheese on the food table! and finding our backup backdrop supplies to make the photobooth still fun), made sure my chronic illness was considered so I could be comfortable enough to spend time with my guests, but most of all: she made sure that I had confidence in her, and knew deep down that I didn't need to worry about a thing. Of course, that is because during the planning process she was on the ball, so responsive, a great communicator, and SUPER DUPER organized! Day-of, I realized that she had remembered an offhand comment I made at our first meeting, and I hadn't even realized how important it was until it was already taken care of. There is no way we could have DIYed so much of our wedding without our friends let alone self-catered, but herding them is like herding cats & bec did an amazing job of it. My favorite part was that every time I started to realize I needed something (usually, water) there was bec at my elbow either with exactly what I needed, even when I hadn't fully realized what it was yet, or checking on me so I wouldn't brush off the pain/discomfort/worry/whatever & got it taken care of instead. On top of alllll that, she was able to recommend an amazing photographer who was an absolute dream to work with.

bec made our day so special, and so wonderful. I can't recommend her enough! She was our fairy godmistress. Just add wings!

Rebecca was amazing! She took our wedding and made it truly wonderful. She was so on top of things, her meetings kept me calm, and she was great to run ideas by. We hired her as a day of coordinator, but she did so much more. She was absolutely essential for the running of our wedding, and I don't know what we would have done without her. She allowed me and my groom to simply enjoy the day and be with our family.

Bec was exactly what we needed for a day-of coordinator for our wedding of 170. She made it so that we could enjoy our wedding day and took care of juggling our vendors so that we didn't have to. She was very thorough in following through and made sure that she knew what we wanted. Most importantly, she let us be us and wasn't "pushy" like a lot of coordinators tend to be (I work with a lot of wedding coordinators in my business). Although she was only as our our day-of coordinator, she took a lot of time before the wedding to check-in with us, offer advice and answer any questions, review our timeline and event details, and let us know that she was available any time if we needed anything. Bec is also just a really cool person who gets super excited about your wedding, especially if you do things a little nontraditionally. You can really tell that she loves her job. We highly recommend her.

We had decided to plan our own wedding and recruit a friend to help us with coordination at the wedding. Lucky for us, we met Rebecca of Blush Celebrations. We had a feeling working with her would make our big day less stressful for everyone. When we met with her to share our plan, she instantly added value by gently opening our eyes to gaps in our plan and helping us focus on what was most important to us. From that initial meeting, until the days following the wedding, I must have said 179 times, “I’m so glad we found Bec!” Beck was everything we could have asked for and more! Hire Blush Celebrations! You’ll be glad you did! A few examples:

Timing: I thought we’d be able go running on the wedding morning and have a leisurely lunch before our day really started. Nope! We needed to wake up earlier than planned and pack a snack!

Makeup: Neither of us wears it! She highly suggested we make figuring out our makeup a priority. Based on her urging, I set up a couple of test runs that didn’t go well. The third time was a charm. Thanks to Beck, we didn’t leave that to the last week before the wedding.

Parents: We told her about our parents, their involvement, and our anxieties. One set of parents likes to drink a lot. She made the suggestion that we pay for a hotel room nearby and book a town car. It made us so happy that we didn’t have to worry about them on our wedding night.

Day of: At the wedding, Bec managed it all, including unexpected guests and guests arriving in a boat that had nowhere to dock. Multiple times, Bec kept us from focusing on minor insignificant details, and kept us focused on celebrating each other and our guests!

Love: We are a same-sex couple and adamant that we only worked with vendors who promote inclusivity and equality. I love that Bec is a vocal supporter of being exactly who you are in life and at your wedding!

Simply put Rebecca went so far past any expectations we ever had of her. Being from the south we were scared, we didn’t know what we could do or should do a lot of times. She helped us with everything from where to get married to picking out rings; from calling stores in Arkansas to find gay friendly attendants to being a part time psychiatrist when the details got to be too much.
What she didn’t do was ever let us lose sight of the most important thing. That is, at the end of the wedding day we would be married to the person that we are going to spend our life with and everything else is just a detail.
Rebecca not only helped make our big day the most amazing night ever but also helped to open my husband and my eyes to a whole new world where being gay is not something to be ashamed of but is just as normal as opening a can of soup.
She did all of this without really seeing that what she did for us was so extraordinary. We are forever grateful to bec for everything she did for us.

Rebecca did an amazing job. I am a very detail oriented person who wanted everything EXACTLY the way I wanted. Rebecca didn't even bat an eye. She took care of all the details seamlessly. She went above and beyond the call of duty when a drink was spilled on my dress and I didn't have anything appropriate to change into. She gave me her dress, and changed into the extra clothes she bought! I did a lot of research before I hired her. She is definitely is great value for the amount of work she does. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend her.

Becca was on top of EVERYthing! She was flexible, communicative, professional and fun. She kept us on schedule while making us relax, and maintained our 'roll with the punches' attitude throughout. Anything we needed she immediately made happen, and even anticipated things we didn't know we might need or want. Her experience in the wedding world was obvious, and having her by our side was both comforting and comfortable. Not only did we have great experience with a vendor, but we made a friend, too!

Rebecca was great! We did the monthly meetings + day of coordination, and it was so worth it! She kept us focused and on track during the planning process (we both tend toward procrastination) without stressing us out. Then as the actual day was approaching, she really leapt into action, making sure all the vendors were organized and all the details were thought of and in place. We didn't have to worry about a thing, and everything went perfectly. I think she even somehow managed to make the sun come out after a cloudy morning!

Rebecca was amazing. My wife and I felt like we had a fairly difficult wedding to plan and she really handled everything perfectly. We had a live band, photographers, two dresses, a food truck for catering (along with their staff), and 125 people to get onto Orcas Island on the same weekend as the Dough Bay music festival. Rebecca stayed on top of everything. She was great with helping us plan it all out (she really helped us make it a dream wedding), trouble shoot and execute. As a contact for the various vendors she kept us in the loop, and was great at keeping us calm. She adjusted her plans as situations changed to make sure it all came together. On the day of the wedding we literally had nothing to worry about. We couldn't have asked for more.

Its probably not as typical for grooms to comment on their wedding as much as the brides. I hope my feedback here is a testament to what a wonderful experience it was working with Rebecca from Blush Celebrations. Blush provided us with three primary services: 1) "Day Of" Consultation 2) "Day Of" Planning and 3) Decoration/Styling.

Consultation: I kid you not, Blush might have saved our ceremony. My wife and I not only wrote our own vows, but the whole ceremony which was officiated by a friend. We even picked all the music to go along with it. Thing is, we'd never planned a wedding before and had no idea how our timing was WAAAY off. Working with Rebecca, we reshaped the ceremony into something more pragmatic and even more beautiful than we imagined. This is just one best practice Blush brought to bear that was invaluable in planning the day of our ceremony.

Planning: You can plan a ceremony down to the minute, but there is always something you didn't expect. For me it was 1) my family having a meltdown right before the ceremony, 2) losing the keys to the car we were supposed to drive off in and having had to catch a ride to the venue, and 3) the food running a little late to serve. Rebecca knew to say the right thing at the right moment to help me get past my family and refocus on what the day was about, my wife and our love for one another. At the end of the night, my bride and I were able to leave in a taxi arranged for and waiting for us by Blush. Not being from the area, I didn't even know we could get a taxi. Lastly, Blush helped us take a minute to change some things up on the fly in the order of toasts and music so no one even noticed the food wasn't on the table.

Plan 1: Monthly Meetings | $1000 - $1500 (regular price) This plan is for the couple who just wants a little guidance. After our initial consultation, we will meet once a month to touch base and make sure everything stays on track. You do most of the planning, but I will be there to offer support, suggestions and answer any questions. As the wedding weekend approaches, you hand over the schedule, the checklists, the contracts and I take over to see it all through. This plan includes the Weekend of Wedding Coordination as well.
