Travel

We love to go places and we’d be thrilled to travel for you! But we all know that dealing with the logistics of travel for your wedding vendors is something you probably don’t even want to contemplate. So, for our team, at least, how about you don’t? Let us take care of finding the best rates, ensuring we arrive in time to do that thing we do, and making all of the arrangements.

We will handle all of our travel plans so that you don’t have to worry about a single detail. All you have to do is reimburse us for the costs, without any markup, and we promise to make that easy with detailed invoices and online payments, too. 

Because we know you wanna know, here are the travel costs we bill for:

  • Round-trip flights to/from your wedding destination (for destinations more than about 5 hours’ driving time from Seattle)
  • Mileage at the current IRS rate to/from your wedding destination (for destinations within about 5 hours’ driving time from Seattle)
  • Hotel from the night before your rehearsal through the morning after your wedding day
  • Car rental, cab, and car service expenses for getting around your destination as needed
  • Meals and incidental expenses at the current IRS rate in your wedding destination
  • Any direct expenses we incur in order to work your wedding, like parking, or museum/park entry fees that apply to your venue

Weddings in Portland, Oregon

We think of Portland as our second home and we love to go there! For Portland, Oregon metro area weddings, just cover our hotel costs and we’ll get the rest.

International Travel

We would be thrilled to plan or coordinate your wedding anywhere in the world that we are able to legally work! You’ll cover the expenses outlined above plus the cost of any required visas, work permits, or other necessary travel documents aside from our passports. Please contact us if you are considering an international destination for your wedding so we can research work regulations and provide an estimate of travel costs.
