Washington D.C. Wedding Planner Brand Session | Ebony | My Stylish Event

For this second session with Ebony, a Washington D.C. based wedding planner, we planned on concentrating on the behind the scenes of her business. (Take a look at Ebony’s first wedding planner brand session)

Goals for our Wedding Planner Brand Session

At our previous session, we concentrated on content that showed Ebony working as if she were setting up for a wedding day. For this follow-on session, Ebony’s goal was to educate her clients on how she serves them behind the scenes, prior to a wedding day. As a wedding planner, much of what she does is executed beforehand in her home office…or even on her couch or bed! So we decided to hold her session at her home in Southern Maryland.

  • Lifestyle favorites (drinking tea, ice cream, having florals in her home)
  • Working with Seating charts
  • Guest RSVP
  • Putting together mood boards for clients
  • Working from the kitchen counter, dining room, livingroom, bedroom
  • Helping her clients with their budget
  • Cake tasting with clients
  • Getting ready the morning of a wedding day
  • Wedding day uniform
  • Celebrating a client with cupcake, champagne
  • Reading magazine for inspiration
