Here at Sparkling Events & Designs our motto is “celebrating all life’s special moments” so that about sums it up for us! Life is a gift; every moment counts and we love celebrating them, big AND small. We offer a variety of services including event planning, event design & coordination and full wedding planning services.  As a Top DC wedding and event planner, we service all areas in the DC Metro area.

We believe that love is in the details.  Those special touches are what make your event a true reflection of who you are.  So we don’t believe in following trends. We don’t believe in what you should do or shouldn’t do.  We want to work with you to create an event that is uniquely yours. We also believe that your event is much more than pretty things… it’s about creating an experience to be remembered and memories that will last a lifetime.

We are so honored to work with you…please contact us for a consultation and custom proposal for your event.

Planning a wedding can be extremely cumbersome and time consuming. Our wedding planning service levels are custom designed specifically to meet the needs of each couple.  Every couple is different and by offering a completely customized package, this ensures that couples are getting exactly the level of service they require.  Some couples have a wedding vision, ideas and have channeled their inner wedding planning skills, but need an expert to guide you along the way.  Other couples may be looking specifically for someone to help plan their event from start to finish.  With our wedding planning service, we are your trusted adviser to eagerly guide you through your planning process.

You have worked tirelessly to plan your wedding and now it’s time to relax and enjoy it. At this level of service, we will step in 2-3 months prior to your wedding date and ensure that the wedding is coordinated to sparkling perfection!  Initially, we meet to discuss your wedding and we will provide our Sparkling Checklist that will guide you along the way.  We begin by reviewing all vendor contracts for completion, identifying any gaps and ensuring that every detail is considered.  Also included in this service are periodic check-ins, the creation of a site plan, master itinerary, contract review and coordination of the wedding rehearsal and wedding day.

Many clients find themselves “in the middle” of coordination and planning levels because they may want a second opinion on their design ideas and/or someone to help bring their ideas together.  The Design + Coordination package is perfect for the couple who wants to plan their own wedding, need a coordinator but desire “design and aesthetic” guidance and expertise to make certain that their event is cohesive and that each detail truly reflects their spirits.  Initially, we meet to discuss your “wedding vision”, the details that are important to you and we create a Design Concept outlining everything from lighting, linen, rental, floral recommendations and more. This level of service includes everything in the coordination service level.
