Wedding planning does NOT have to be

the overwhelming, unorganized task

it is so often made out to be.


It can be a relaxing, organized, and (dare I say) fun experience.

You need a professional wedding planner in Nashville, TN to guide you and you have come to the right place.

Welcome to the 3-Phase Planning Process:



A bulk of wedding planning is choosing your venue and vendors. That is why we will get it out of the way first. We will book all your big-ticket vendors before moving onto anything else.



With the book on vendors closed, we can move onto the more fun aspect of wedding planning — fleshing out your décor ideas and buttoning up how you want your special day to look and feel.



It is the little things that truly make the wedding day unique. With your big ideas now in place we can focus on determining how it will all come together for a cohesive, worry free day.

What's Included:

  • A personalized planning checklist: Say goodbye to trying to remember what needs to be done and when. Each month’s tasks will be clearly labeled out —no more guessing games the path forward will be clear. 

  • Vendor ResearchSay goodbye to the overwhelming feeling of having to reach out to countless vendors. Sit back, relax and let me handle the back-and-forth communications. You will be presented with vendor options in a clear, organized manner. All you have to do is choose.

  • Personal consultations including a site visit: We can’t plan a wedding if we don’t talk about it. These consultations give us a chance to get more into the details as we go through this planning journey together.

  • Assistance with the theme, colors, style, and design of your wedding: We will talk through all your design ideas and determine a cohesive plan to bring them to life!

  • Planning Portal: To keep your planning documents from becoming a scattered mess you get your own portal, so everything is in one central place.

  • Wedding Day Management: No need to worry about who will oversee all your carefully laid plans! I will orchestrate a completely worry-free wedding day where you can focus on marrying your best friend and spending quality time with your guests!

  • A Professional: Good news! I have done this before. When you book Grace Events you are booking me and my expertise. You get unlimited access to me, my organizational brain, and my experience. I will keep you organized, focused, and on track.

"Danielle and the entire Grace Events team were phenomenal.


Highly organized with perfect execution on the timings that occurred during the wedding.


Couldn't have done it without you Danielle."

Happy client couple of Grace Events, wedding planner in Nashville TN

One way or another your wedding will get planned.

The question is what kind of

experience do you want it to be?

You could try to do it all yourself — constantly stressing about if something has been forgotten and never really knowing if you are doing what you need to be. 

You could spend countless hours

reading and trying to follow “how to plan your own wedding” blogs with tips that don’t quite fit your needs.

You could partner with a professional... 

Who will keep you on track — 

 because I know what needs to be done and when. 

Who will come alongside you —

and implement a planning schedule that reflects your needs and timeline. 

Who will make wedding planning

a relaxing, organized experience instead of a frazzled, jumbled mess. 

Take back your time and sanity.
