Your wedding should be uniquely yours, which is why our approach to event planning and design focuses on the details that make up your personal brand – 

whether we’re fully-executing a tented wedding at the lake house where you spent every summer, or planning a Tuscan-inspired rehearsal dinner at a gorgeous winery along the Leelanau Peninsula. Our event planning packages range from Full-service Design and Planning for your entire wedding weekend to Partial Planning for those couples who want to handle some pieces themselves, but still want our help along the way.

OUR SERVICES

Full Service Planning

We’ll take care of everything, seriously.

Full-service planning covers all aspects of planning and design for your wedding day, including budget planning & oversight, timeline creation & management, a custom planning checklist that is continually updated throughout your planning, full event design, guest services (hotel room blocks, transportation, welcome bags, RSVP tracking – you name it, we do it), venue & vendor selection and management, and full event production.

To put it simply, we hold your hand throughout the process and handle every single detail.

Partial Service Planning

We’ll collaborate to make your wedding amazing.

Partial Service Planning is ideal for the couple who plan to handle certain aspects of their wedding (IE: you know where you’re getting married and are fine making some phone calls), but need guidance with specific pieces of planning and design. This plan includes: budget creation, timeline creation & management, a custom planning checklist that is continually updated throughout your planning, full event design, vendor selection & 2-month coordination, full event production, and ongoing consultation.

Think of us as the hand on your back guiding you in the right direction. We’ve got you.

They were there to plan and support every single iota of our vision. They were a sounding board for all of our ideas. They were a calm energy when things got crazy. And an emotionally invested partner in this and was as as dedicated to making this happen for us as we were. The designs and visual aesthetics came out so perfectly. Also, no matter what was going on they were ALWAYS AVAILABLE and made us feel like we were the only couple they were working with

They are incredibly organized, professional and knowledgeable. They have an excellent reputation and each time we hired a new vendor, we heard how happy they were that we were working with Fox & Fern.

— Hannah, 2020 Bride

The design that fox + fern created for our wedding was beyond our wildest dreams. They asked the right questions and took the time to get to know us, allowing for a full understanding of who we are, what our vibes are, why we were getting married and what was important to us.
