What inspired you to launch your own business?

In 2002 my younger brother and I both got engaged and had our weddings 6 weeks apart. Things went wrong for both of our events - Dad's tuxedo jacket wouldn't button and his tie was too short for one wedding; my cake arrived with black icing, bridesmaids running around trying to decorate before the ceremony, the list goes on. From that point forward I insisted on helping family and friends with their events. My goal is for couples and their families and friends to be guests at their own event.


What keeps you passionate about weddings?

Weddings are such a joyful milestone in peoples lives. Because everyone's visions of what their perfect day looks like I am excited to meet with new couples and see what I can do to help them plan stress free.


Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"We met Brianne from Stress-Free Weddings approximately five months prior to our wedding. We were in search of someone to help us coordinate our special day, but she delivered more than we could've ever imagined! She checked in every month leading up to the wedding, met with us over video chat (she planned from afar as we were out of state), and worked closely with our vendors so that our wedding day ran smoothly. As the bride, the most important thing for me was that I could enjoy my wedding day without any stress. She did just that! Numerous family members and friends commented on how great she was. She took care of all the little details, even cleaning up toward the end of the night. They were amazed at how organized she was, how she got things done in a respectful but authoritative way, and how much she truly appeared to enjoy herself. We had one little snafu where a groomsman split his pants prior to walking down the aisle. Brianne found us a seamstress, sent him off to get his pants fixed, and had him back in time for pictures. We would highly recommend her to any future couples!" ~ Emily Day
