Couples are Buzzing


Best. Decision. Ever. I don't even know where to start when it comes to thanking Weddings Down the Shore Events team for helping me put together my dream wedding!! Our wedding planner, Michael, went above and beyond throughout the entire process. Michael attended every meeting and offered the best advice and decision making support! He worked SO well with our families and everyone praised his flawless execution of our perfect wedding. Our parents LOVED working with him and getting to know him. Michael is calm, collected, organized, professional, and kind. I simply can't imagine my wedding day without him! His team orchestrated all of the details of our day behind the scenes and at the end of the day, everything went according to plan and nothing went wrong! If it did, I didn't even know about it :). Michael is willing and able to navigate through all of the stressful wedding tasks with ease. He contacted all of our vendors in advance to introduce himself, he communicated all important information to our team leading up to the big day, and he took all of the worry off of my plate! He is ALWAYS on, but makes it seem so effortless because he's so put together. This team is very familiar with ALL of the local vendor options and they have personal relationships with most of them, which was more important than I ever could have known. Shore vendors know and respect this professional team! And that goes a long way to ensuring that everyone is invested in over delivering on your wedding day expectations. No one knows how to plan and deliver a dream-like wedding better than Weddings Down the Shore Events! All of our guests were amazed with every detail and we were so humbled by the endless compliments, but none of that would have been possible without this team. WE WERE SO IMPRESSED! We consider Michael a forever family friend and we would trust him 100% to plan it all over again! 10/10, everyone must reach out to Michael for your wedding down the shore!!!!

Our Services


* "Month of" Coordination Package

This is the package for the couple who knows what they want, and all the details are already in place. This package is tailored to your specific needs. This will allow you to spend more of your day with your loved ones while we bring your vision to life.  Weddings Down the Shore will take the worry out of everything, so you can be the star on your day!! We suggest booking this package 5-8 months prior to your wedding day.

*Partial Planning Package

Also including all of the features from the "Month Of" Coordination package, this package is for those who have gotten our job started. Whether you are overwhelmed and have realized how time consuming planning a wedding can be, or you only need help coordinating a few of your vendors, we're ready to swoop in and pick up where you left off. The partial planning package includes an additional 10 hours of planning and consulting work as well as up to four in-person meetings together. We begin by getting ourselves up to speed on your progress and then we create a monthly checklist and timeline for the remainder of the planning process, implementing the details you started with, while adding suggestions from our knowledge of the industry.

*Styling & Design

This package is designed for a couple that needs a little more help creatively and a little less help logistically than those looking for partial or full-service planning. We begin by creating detailed design plans from overall room design down to the tiniest of customized details. We'll handle all of the pinning and decor sourcing keeping everything cohesively "you"  -- and will be there to style it all perfectly on your wedding day so that your guests can just be guests! 

*Signature Full Service Package

This is the signature full service option offered by Weddings Down the Shore. This all-inclusive package is designed for couples looking for unlimited guidance and expertise from day one. The full-service package includes 40 hours of consulting, unlimited phone and email correspondence, as well as up to 6 in-person meetings—with us or with your vendors—divided up as you choose. The full-service package allows you to relax and enjoy being engaged while we take care of the design, coordination, and execution of your event.

**Our Packages start at $2000 and can be tailored to fit any budget and needs.

The Man with the Plan

It is very important to me that every couple has the most memorable and magical night of their life! Just like the commitment to ideas, I make the same commitment to you. I promise to be there from the beginning 'til the end, bring in new ideas and inspiration, and to make sure every detail is perfected to the best of my ability.  I earned my Culinary Arts and Marketing Degree from TCNJ. I was fortunate enough to gain years of event experience working for Macy's in NYC. Having working on major events like the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Flower Show. I also spent five years as Wedding Social Event Manager at Golden Inn/Icona in Avalon NJ. I am now fortunate along with myself to have a team of certified event planners to help me create "Your Dream Day Imagined.
