About You

It’s really important to us that we work with clients we love! Why? Because, real talk: we’re going to spend a lot of time together planning your wedding and it’s a fucking drag to work our asses off for people we don’t vibe with. And it’s not good for you either: no one does their best work for people they don’t like. (If you’ve ever had a shitty boss, you know exactly what we mean.)

We’ve been doing this a long time – collectively, our team has over 25 years of experience! – and along the way we’ve noticed some things that the kind of clients we love to plan with have in common.

Aisle Less Traveled might be the right wedding planners for you if...

  • You know who you are and you are ready to bring your full, authentic selves to the wedding planning process.
  • You have a clear wedding vision and you care about creating a beautiful, memorable wedding that will leave a lasting impression.
  • You treasure your guests and want to give them an exceptional experience. (We often have guests come up to us at the end of the night to tell us, “This was the best wedding we’ve ever been to!”)
  • You are thoughtful and confident decision makers.
  • You want a team of incredible artists to turn bring your wedding vision to life – and you’re ready to trust us to guide that process for you. 
  • You are eager to support small, local businesses with your wedding.
  • You are refusing to let the wedding industry and societal expectations dictate how you celebrate your love.
  • You are ready to ditch outdated traditions and boring pastel color palettes so your wedding can be vibrant, authentic, and FUN!
  • BONUS POINTS: You swear as much as we do and you know there’s a Schitt’s Creek GIF that perfectly embodies your response to just about any sitution.

About Us

Chances are, you’ve never planned a wedding before and you could use some professional help figuring out how to make this shindig happen. That’s where I come in.

Hi! I'm Cindy, your queer feminist wedding planner.

I’ve been planning live events since 1995, when I got hooked on the behind-the-scenes work that happens in live theatre. As a stage manager, I worked with all kinds of personalities to create unique experiences, handling every small detail without losing sight of the big picture. That’s the A game I’ll bring to your wedding. (Read more about why stage managers make great wedding planners here.)

While planning my own wedding in 2010, I noticed all the bride-centric, sexist, homophobic nonsense and it it pissed me the fuck off. So I decided to do something about it. In 2011, I switched gears from theatre to weddings and focused on advocating for couples who are marginalized by society and the wedding industry to get y’all the joyful, beautiful, offbeat, love fests you deserve.

Since then, I’ve gotten really good at weddings – and I’ve trained a fantastic team to help me get it all done. I’m sure you’re gonna love them!

We are really damn good at planning big parties and at helping you sort out what’s important to you so that you can have the wedding you actually want.

Oh yeah, and we’re also great at reducing your wedding planning stress so you can chill the fuck out, too!
