Kia

 

Hi, my name is Kia and I’ve been the owner and main wedding planner for Estoccasions for over 16 years.   I’m one of the owners who started Engaged Connecticut. I’m a straight shooter wedding planner, I tell it as it is, and if I can pull something together that you wanted but wasn't in your price point, I will.  Every person is different, some couples love to text, or call, meet in person or check in daily and my goal is to find out how you like to plan and do what works best.   I’m bilingual, I love the color blue and deep down I pick winter over any other season.   I love outdoor weddings, mixing in family traditions and yet not losing who you are as a couple.  I handle stress well, I hate the heat and at the end of the day, I want to plan a real wedding for real couples and focus on the things that matter.

Hi, I’m Heidi and I’m the Owner and Lead Planner for Always and Forever and have been for over 16 years.  I’m also one of the Owners of Engaged Connecticut and love working with out of the box couples.  The more non-traditional, the more fun!  Outdoor tented weddings are definitely my favorite and I love me a good beach wedding too. Throw in a dog, horse or even a goat of honor and I’m sold.  My ideal couple is one that is able to trust my years of experience in planning and have FUN during their planning. Yes I will hold your hand during the process, cry with you (maybe), but definitely laugh a lot and probably have a glass of wine or vodka tonic (or two) with you.   I live with my husband and my two crazy kids Stryder age 12 and Berkeley age 10 as well as my crazy puppy Hashtag age 1.5.  I’m definitely more of a dog vs. cat person, but I do love all animals. The color of my hair is ever changing, in fact I do not think there is a color I haven’t tried. I guarantee when we meet each other, the next time you see me it will be a different color.
