Harmony Creative Studio is based in Los Angeles, but we do weddings across Southern California every year - including Malibu, Santa Barbara, Ojai, Santa Ynez, Temecula, San Diego, Palm Springs and just about everywhere in between. We also love to travel for weddings in North America and Australia (Margaux lived there!), but currently we do not plan weddings outside of these areas. Travel fees apply to all areas more than 100 miles outside of Los Angeles.
While you can definitely have the wedding of your dreams on any budget - the typical spend of the couples we work with for full planning + design is around $80,000-$150,000. Our Month-of clients usually have budgets that start at $40,000. Weddingwire.com has found in a recent poll that couples in Los Angeles usually underestimate their wedding spend by nearly $13,000. In other words, you may not know what the actual budget for the wedding you want is, and we can definitely help with that, so let's chat! Schedule an inquiry call HERE.
Most of the weddings planned by Harmony Creative are full planning + design clients, which all involve custom pricing. We do not structure our prices based on a percentage of budget - rather they are based on a number of factors, including guest count, location, logistics, travel, etc. Our starting pricing for full planning + design is $5500, and then with that the usual spend for couples is somewhere between $6,000-10,000 depending. We do have a flat rate for Month-of Coordination which is $2500, which is offered at around a dozen venues in Southern California we are very familiar with.

It kind of breaks our hearts this needs to be asked, but yes, of course! Harmony Creative Studio welcomes couples of all faiths, nationalities, sexual orientations, races and ages.
Then you've definitely come to the right place! Roughly 1/3 of our couples in any given year are planning their SoCal wedding from afar. We have a great system in place to ensure that you still feel connected to to the process while not physically being here.
Yes, there are a few types of weddings that we have made the decision as a company not to plan for one reason or another. We are happy to point you to a planner who specializes in these types of weddings, and who we know you will have an amazing experience with:
Nope! After several years of planning corporate and high-level community events, we decided years ago to focus solely on weddings because that's where our hearts are. Weddings are our jam and we're sticking to it.
Short answer: No. Long answer: The venue provided coordinator is there for the VENUE. Harmony Creative Studio is there for YOU. A venue coordinator is often just a facilitator that ensures the venue rules are being followed, and the venue is protected. They might even help with a few things like logistics and a timeline, but always in the interest of the venue, its' policies and contract. If you're looking for someone to provide a stress free wedding day and planning process, and ensure your day represents you, that your guests are taken care of, that your vendors deliver what you've paid for, and that no small detail is missed - a venue coordinator is not going to cut it I'm afraid.
We fully believe that it is impossible for anyone to come on board very shortly before your wedding and provide a 'Day-of' service that will benefit you at all. We do offer Month-of Coordination for a few select venues around Southern California. Get info HERE.
We know. There are plenty of weddings out there that are variations on a cookie cutter theme. That's not our style - and we know it's not yours either.
"There are no words to convey just how grateful we are for Harmony Creative Studio. To say that Margaux is incredible at what she does would be the understatement of the century!"
"We've said it before and we'll say it again - without her there would have been no wedding! The best wedding planner two indecisive introverts could ask for!"
