Alternative Wedding Planning For Independent, Feminist & LGBTQ+ People


Hi, I’m Cindy, your queer feminist wedding planner. I help independent, feminist, and LGBTQ+ couples like you plan meaningful weddings without losing your sanity or blowing your budget. I’m based in Seattle (my new town) and St. Louis (my hometown) – but I love to travel so much that it’s included for the entire continental US in all of my packages!

I offer a wide range of wedding planning services from wedding planning subscriptions for DIY-ers to my signature wedding management package to full-service, start-to-finish wedding planning and design, plus a la carte options you can mix and match. If you want to plan with me, I’ve got something that will fit your needs and your budget. And with modern technology, I’m a mostly virtual wedding planner – so we can work together no matter where you (or your wedding) are located.

If you are looking for a wedding planner who gets you, who supports whatever your wedding vision is, and who uses your pronouns correctly – that’s me. So shoot me an email, let’s chat and see if we like each other, and then let’s get planning a wedding day that truly reflects the two of you!
