Calling All Brides And Grooms Who Want To Have A Wedding With Meaning

Let me guess. You want to:

  • Have a wedding that feels authentic to you
  • Do it without upsetting your parents or feeling guilty about excluding friends
  • And without spending 10 times more than you wanted

Oh yeah, and you want to get the hell out of generic-wedding-land 🙄 

(Without feeling like you have to include a llama and a food truck just to be “quirky”)

It doesn't have to be this way!

But right now you're feeling:

  • Overwhelmed by the ridiculous amount of stuff you're expected to do (wtf!)
  • Unsure about whether you really have to do it all
  • Afraid of upsetting your family if you don't include certain rituals (but, like, it's not 1980, Mom!)
  • Terrified you'll lose friends or upset people if you don't invite them
  • Exhausted at the idea of spending tens of thousands of dollars on an event that doesn't reflect who you are at all

Right now weddings are very one-size-fits-all

And I Honestly Think That’s Bullshit

(especially given how you unique the two of you are)

You’ve been convinced that there are certain “rules” that must be followed in order to do a wedding right…

  • The first dance
  • The cake cutting
  • The bouquet toss

Is that really the formula for the perfect wedding you’re supposed to follow?

Why can’t you just have the wedding you REALLY want to have?

Nobody should have to feel like they have to do anything they don't want to at their wedding.

But on top of all of the wedding industry pressure it turns out everybody has an opinion about your wedding.

Your parents, friends, and even your co-workers have something to say about your plans!


YES, that’s you two! The wildly unique and one-of-a-kind pair that you are.

But you can’t have that if you’re busy trying to squeeze yourself into the same-old outdated wedding box and desperately trying to keep everybody else happy.

As seen on:

Enter wedding with intention

Imagine feeling...

  • Free to do exactly what makes you feel like you, instead of trying to be someone you’re not
  • More connected to your relationships
  • Totally relaxed because you’re in control of your spending and your plans
  • Can’t-sleep-excited to celebrate with your loved ones in your own unique way
  • Confident knowing that you're completely in love and aligned as you enter your marriage

Sound good?

Dare to design a celebration with soul

I'm truly obsessed!

Why Do I Care So Much About Your Wedding?

It's time weddings got a refresh

Hi! I’m Karen.

After spending five years as a wedding planner I witnessed some truly absurd stuff that made me question the way we celebrate them.

Once I realised I wasn’t the only one seeking more meaning, I began to look into the origins of “proper” wedding etiquette, and you know what I found out? Most of it was made up!

I thought, “WTF? This has got to change!”

Now I’m on a quest to dismantle the societal pressures that go hand-in-hand with attempting to plan a wedding in today’s heavily filtered world.

My mission? To spread the word that the only opinion that matters when it comes to your wedding is your own.

It arms readers with the tools necessary to cut through the societal bullshit!

Wedding with Intention’ gives permission to couples who feel trapped by the madness of the wedding industry to instead plan a celebration that is reflective of who they really are, quirks and all.

Karen breathes fresh air into old traditions and arms readers with the tools necessary to cut through the societal bullshit and determine what is truly important to them, not only for their ‘big day’, but also in their relationship for years to come.

I’ll be gifting this to all my newly engaged friends, and can hear their sighs of relief already.

— Jaime

The MARRIAGE itself is really the most important thing — this book helped to remind us of that

When you get engaged and start planning a wedding your next thoughts tend to go towards whether you want to start a family and when!!

It’s so easy to be excited for the wedding and the ceremony and the party that the idea of being married to this one person forever gets kind of lost.

This book brought us back to reality.

— Carolyn

It makes you think about the WHY of it all

I wish I had this book 5 months ago when I started planning our wedding because I think it would’ve helped me navigate through many headaches I’ve already had, and I probably would’ve fought harder for some of my vision that unfortunately I’ve already given up since I didn’t really have it defined.

It’s not forcing you into a cookie cutter wedding. It’s not sharing cheesy, cliche “unconventional” ideas that are really just more materialistic than the original traditions. It walks you through so many hard parts of wedding planning in the very beginning!

I think EVERY couple needs this book so that we as consumers can put MEANING back into weddings.

— Kaylyn
