I love collaboration! Nothing is better than working with another vendor or group of vendors to create something wonderful and amazing, your Dream Wedding Experience. At Black Licorice Weddings we want to be more than your wedding planner, we want to be your wedding experience planner. Each wedding should be an experience like nothing else. Whenever possible every detail should be customized to reflect you as a couple and your personalities and passions. I set myself a goal to find the best way to make every wedding experience unique to each couple without making their experience of the planning process tedious and overwhelming with detailed decisions and contemplation. I wanted to create a way to plan a detailed custom wedding experience that was so easy that the couple starts the process with a smile that grows bigger every month until the Wedding Day when they change to the look of a six year old on Christmas morning.
The solution came to me in the form of "Packaged Weddings". I searched through my overflowing idea box and pulled out a select few to set up as All Inclusive Packages. The process is so simple. The couple selects the packaged wedding from my website. We then meet to discuss the package, additional a la carte items and to give me a feel for them as a couple so I can stylize and theme the wedding as a reflection of them. I will then do all the planning and will check in with you regularly to give you little reminders of things to remember or do, such as don't forget the bridal party thank you gifts or now is a great time to send out your out of town invitations. All you need to bring for the wedding day is your marriage license, wedding attire and your guests. If you prefer more involvement in the planning process than we should discuss our Planning & Coordination Services.
As I was researching locations for the couple that won our draw for "Free Wedding Planning" from the Bliss Bridal Show I came across Good Knights Entertainment and I was inspired. Anyone who knows me knows I love to dress up, I love themes and I am a geek at heart. Visions and ideas flew through my mind while I toured the location with the owners, Dan and Linda Smith, along with our Lead Stylist and Decor Specialist Linda Payne, owner of Designer Weddings Inc. I was seeing Errol Flynn laughing in the trees, hearing a poor farm boy reply "as you wish", imagining the excitement and games of Darkmoon Faire, I almost had to search the skies to be sure dragons weren't circling above. This venue called to me and I knew I needed to create packages so I could bring this same excitement and wonder to others. I am a wedding planner who creates wedding experiences full of fantasy and amazement.
From my first visit to their website I knew what I wanted to do and seeing it in person and meeting with Dan and Linda only confirmed it, I wanted to create special packages just for this wonderful location and venue. These Good Knights Entertainment packages would leave nothing out. I have laid the blueprints for a Medieval Themed Wedding that can be customized to your vision and dreams. From the commissioner to the decor and send off you will be in a world of your creation, a fantasy wedding planned just for you. I broke it down to three packages based on guest size from an Elopement and Intimate Wedding to the Epic Wedding that fills the Feast Hall. Each package has optional a la carte items that allow us to adjust to every couples needs and wishes for their wedding experience.
After creating the three customisable packages for Good Knights Entertainment I realised that I love creating custom packages for inspiring venues. There are so many venues out there that capture the imagination and create visions of themes and styles that dance in your brain and tickle your fantasies. Keep watch on our Partnered Venues page as I foresee it being a place of discovery and fascination. There are a few venues that I already have in mind. I'm not giving any spoilers but look for themes that fall in line with Alberta Roots and Culture along with some nautical themes and edgy alternate seating arrangements. There is no telling where my creativity will bring me next.
