INTIMATE NUPTIALS by TC
There is something so romantic and timeless about an intimate nuptial. You made it to this page which means you've made the decision to host an intimate gathering celebrating your love as a couple and I couldn't be happier for you.
I use the term "intimate nuptial" at Toney Consulting as opposed to the term "elopement" as it describes what my couples are actually looking for. The term "elopement" is thrown around so loosely and I don't want you to go into your nuptials uncomfortable by the use of this term.
My intimate nuptials cover a variety of styles: from smaller more refined weddings to adventurous nuptials at the top of a mountain with simply the wedding couple and their photographer and/or videographer. I know there are many different styles our couples prefer for intimate nuptials and I am truly up for any adventure.
I offer full, all-inclusive planning services for our intimate nuptials, making the process simple and seamless for you. All you have to do is sign one contract and pay one invoice. I take care of the rest. I mean, whoever thought planning a wedding could be so easy?!
Below are a list of elements included in my planning services.
Here is how I can help you:
BUDGET CREATION AND MANAGEMENT
Working closely with the client to ensure a realistic budget is set for the event(s). Once the budget is set, design and creation of events are focused around those requirements. Throughout the planning process I manage costs to ensure the budget is met and not exceeded.
VENUE SELECTION AND MANAGEMENT
Venue research and thorough site consultations remotely and/or in person. All venues will be selected by client prior to signing of the contract. This includes proofing contracts and confirming details with vendors.
EVENT ENTERTAINMENT COORDINATION AND MANAGEMENT
In depth entertainment research and selection process. Review entertainers riders and connecting with venue(s) on requirements. All entertainers are fully vetted.
VENDOR MANAGEMENT AND NEGOTIATION
Negotiating with vendors to ensure best possible rates are provided for the client. Management of vendors from booking to day-of coordination. All vendors are fully vetted. I utilize tools created in-house to manage vendors and stay on budget.
Outreach to a minimum of 5 vendors, depending on clients needs. Vendors include entertainers, bakers, caterers, photographers, videographers, designers, rental companies, venues, and more. All vendors will be approved by the client prior to signing of the contract.
EVENT DESIGN AND CREATION
Conceptual development and design using techniques to create a positive and meaningful experience for guests. Event design is tailored to the clients preference of theme or venue location.
CREATING AND EDITING CLIENT PROPOSALS
Unlimited proposal revisions. Once the proposal is signed by the client, it is thereby considered an official contract. Terms and conditions will apply.
Organized schedule of all events including rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and beyond. This includes set up/breakdown dates and times as well as vendor arrival times. Each event (rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception) will require a timeline of events. I will coordinate the run-of-show based on venue and vendor requirements.
Coordination and management of transportation for client and guests. Includes manifest creation and management. I will handle booking transportation vendor(s) and ensure you and your guests are properly taken care of day-of. Transportation is the last thing you want worry about day-of. I suggest letting someone else handle it for you!
SCHEDULED CLIENT MEETINGS
To ensure a cohesive decision making process, scheduled meetings with the client will be set as needed. Depending on which stage in the planning process you have reached, client meetings will be set up accordingly. During each milestone of the planning process it is critical that the planner and the client meet to ensure all parties are updated.
Onsite coordination and management of all elements from vendors, set up. to entertainment and venue management ensuring all details of the event(s) are seamless and meet client expectations. As the day-of coordinator, I handle all logistics, operations, and production ensuring you enjoy the most special day of your life. You don't want to stress about vendors, set up, or breakdown down after your reception. Let me take on these duties so that you can enjoy this day with your sweetheart and ride off into the sunset.
A customized program for the ceremony and reception as well as food and beverage menus for guests.
Full custom website design. Throughout the planning process we will make the necessary updates to your wedding website to ensure your guests stay updated.

I offer a full, all-inclusive planning service in addition to a customized service. All services are based on a flat fee and are based on the wedding and its complexity.
What distinguishes Toney Consulting among other planing companies, is my pricing structure. I charge a flat fee to save you money. Charging a percentage incentivizes other planners to spend more of the client’s money. I want to save you money AND provide top of the line service.
Each service is based on a starting flat fee. Additional elements added will increase the cost of any planning service.
