Welcome to Cherished Memories by Karen!
Cherished Memories by Karen plans events that reflect the personalities and visions of each of our clients. We are personally invested in making sure everything on the wedding day is just as the bride envisioned it and they are able to enjoy this special time. We love building relationships with clients and to be a part of their lives for years to come. Watching a couple's stories unfold is one of the reasons we love our work so much. We cherish the relationships, the memories, and the exclusiveness of EVERY EVENT.
RELATIONSHIPS: From the first meeting with a new client, my first task is to get to know every detail about the couple and their story. Every step, every task, every detail will be performed keeping the bride and groom's story in mind. Also, we value our relationship with professional wedding vendors. Building and maintaining a strong relationship insures each vendor will work to do an incredible job for you. A professional team working together insures a powerful group striving towards the same goal of providing you with the wedding of your dreams.
MEMORIES: After the cake is cut and the guests have gone home, all that is left are the memories – cherished memories. The memories you have of the process and the celebration should be unforgettable. Each step of the process should include fond memories. The celebration should be treasured and etched in your mind forever. Your family and friends should leave feeling special for participating in your celebration in a significant way.
EXCLUSIVE: Our clients are hiring us to plan a wedding unlike any wedding they have ever been to. They want a celebration that tells their unique story. We approach every event with a fresh slate, from a different viewpoint. With a large portfolio of creative vendors, I work to match every bride with the vendors needed to best accomplish that exclusive event.
Just as every wedding should be a unique experience, every bride has different needs. Therefore, we offer a variety of services to fit the couple's needs and budget.
For the budget conscience bride, we can schedule an organizational planning session to generate a budget, an inspirational board, and a timeline to get the bride off and planning.
For the creative bride that wants to do all the planning and just needs someone to orchestrate the special day, we are able to step in a month before the wedding and help relieve that final month of pressure.
For the busy bride that has limited time, WE WILL be there from the "I WILL" to the "I DO". We can be there to meet with vendors and choose the best options to help tell the couple's story on the big day.
For the bride that only needs help in certain areas, we have an "a la carte" menu from which to choose to meet specific needs.
MEET THE PLANNER:
Hello, my name is Karen Guillory. I have organized events for 12 years in the Central Louisiana area. Two years ago I discovered my passion for wedding planning when I helped plan my daughter's wedding. Becoming a successful wedding planner comes from having a heart and investing yourself emotionally into other people's weddings, just the way I did for my own daughter.
In order to keep up with current styles and trends, I attend several conferences a year. This allows me to bring the latest ideas back to Central Louisiana to share with brides. My most recent conference featured David Tutera from "My Fair Wedding". He spoke on topics of design, photography, venue and budgets. By mentoring with a Wedding Planning Expert from California for the past three years, I have developed a passion to serve my clients with utmost attention and compassion. By the end of the wedding planning process, clients evolve into long-term relationships and dear friends. Please call to set up a free initial consultation to evaluate your needs.
