Meet the Authors

We are three couple friends that planned three weddings with our kids over a
two-year Covid-impacted span. We wanted to share the benefits of our
experience with other engaged couples, their parents and families for one
purpose: to help people minimize planning stress and conflict for family harmony.

If there's one really important thing we've learned it's that with sincere
communications and a willingness to compromise, the planning journey can
be harmonious and fun, and not contentious and overly stressful.
