Butterfly Brides wedding planning & design is ready to help you execute the wedding of your dreams. My goal when starting Butterfly Brides was to assist brides with their vision no matter what the budget, it can be acheived. Planning a wedding can be very stressful, time-consuming and overwhelming. During the planning process, I want my couples to be energized, relaxed and happy to make these very important decisions. My name is Brandy Baker-Lynch and I am the owner/ principal planner at Butterfly Bride's.

My goal when helping couples plan is not to take over the planning process. These will be your decisions that you have to live with. I would like to be your guide in steering you toward the best decisions for a memorable day. Most of my clients hire me 6monnths to even the week of the wedding. Yes, I said the week of.

As a planner it's my job to help you receive the best deals, service and for you to feel like a guest at your own wedding. By this, I help you as little or as much as you like. You decide how many hours you need me and what you would like for me to help you with, we design and customize a package to fit all of your planning needs as well as the budget.

In October 2009, I acheived my Professional title as a member of the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants ( ACPWC.com) and in February 2010 became a Board Member. I am currently working towards acheiving my Certified Title.

My educational background is in Interior Architecture & Design from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. I found that there was something missing and I wanted to explore more aspects of design and creativity. I've planned my own wedding nine years ago and helped many friends and family plan theirs. Planning a wedding is my passion, just to see a love so strong and healthy is my hearts desire. Read less

Brandy is just wonderful; she stepped up to the challenge of working with me long distance. We had unique requests and she came through for us with flying colors. We really couldn’t have had much of a wedding at all if it wasn’t for her. She stayed in contact with me and kept me on track with our timeline. She made our table settings just beautiful and even dealt with a last minute beverage issue. Her warm and professional demeanor was very comforting during the stressful times. If you want someone who really cares about you, will listen to your needs and execute it all with complete professionalism then Brandy is your lady.

We came to Brandy with very unique ideas on how we envisioned our wedding. Brandy was so supportive and flexible - she was with us every step of the way, helping and inspiring us to stay true to our vision. She is creative, organized, and very professional- always getting back to us quickly, yet also very calm -- this is SO important in a coordinator!!! On the day of our wedding, as soon as I saw her - I felt my entire body completely RELAX! This was priceless! I just knew that she would take care of all the details. I can not recommend Brandy from Butterfly Brides enough!!!

Brandy of Butterfly Brides was there for me 110%! Of course on any wedding days there tends to be some little mishaps here and there, I think without Brandy there as my day of coordinator, I would've stressed out more than I was already as a bride. Thank you Brandy for making my wedding day more special than it already was! I definitely recommend all brides to Brandy!

I booked Brandy as my day-of coordinator about a month before the wedding. During that month Brandy checked on me frequently making sure I was okay and if I needed anything. On the day of Brandy and her team definetly took the stress of the wedding off of my shoulders and handled everything beautifully. Brandy set the site up exactly how I pictured it. It was GORGEOUS! They handled the rehearsal the day before and everyone knew what they were supposed to do the day-of. She handled the decor, cueing the DJ, keeping the wedding moving along the timeline and much much more! I couldnt imagine my day without Brandys help!
