Over the years we here at the Destination Wedding Studio have seen that it is truly in the shared and unrepeatable moments found at the intersection of two lives coming together as one, where love is undeniably and inextricably found.
It is floating in the air as a father and his little girl dance for what feels like the very last time, felt in every embrace-squeeze and kiss-between old and new friends, witnessed by all when her 'soon-to-be' sees his 'one day' through eyes that have, until that very moment, never really been open.
Love - is the essence breathed in and out of every wedding story.
At DWS, we begin with your unique love story, coupled with your dreams, and then side-by-side, we work to weave those worlds together to create a magical wedding celebration you will never forget!
"While others may take care of the event, you need someone to watch over your Heart."
Best Local Wedding Planner
The concierge service includes both planning and design elements. It is perfect for the couple who is busy working, far away and wants someone to “watch over” them and every detail. We begin by discussing your inspirations, dreams, and vision. From there, we create selections and details for your review, offer an optional site visit, provide continuous communication, and more often than not, become a listening ear and someone to continuously guide you along the way. Each concierge celebration truly becomes a reflection of each couple and your unique story.
Our Lady In Waiting package is perfect for the couple who wants guidance along the way and would like to ‘partner’ with us in creating their special day. We will act as your consultants, offering advice and support throughout the planning process and refer selected vendors. Two and a half months prior to your wedding day, we will take over all the details and when your big day finally arrives, we will direct the wedding party throughout the day and complete set up and breakdown so you can enjoy your moment and your guests!
Day Of is perfect for the couple who has it all done – has the venue(s), contracted the vendors, selected the décor and details – and wants to be able to celebrate worry-free. Eight weeks prior to your wedding day, we’ll review all the work you have already done and take over all the items included in the Day Of package.
"Peggy was brilliant. I'm extremely obsessive over details and she immediately put me at ease from the first moment we met. She always kept great notes and followed my vision to the T. She communicated with my vendors and made sure everything ran smoothly. She got to know us as a family throughout the planning process and was always available for questions and concerns. I couldn't have done it without her. "
"Peggy Russel was amazing. She is sweet and made our day perfect. She responded to emails on time. She even met with me when I visit Miami. I live in NYC and she made the whole process feel like a breeze. There was no stress on my part. The day of the wedding was very organized thanks to Peggy. "
