Celebrate with style

Your wedding day is the first day of your journey into marriage. From start to finish, your wedding should tell the story of who you are. Celebrate your wedding with style! Embrace your passion and adventure. Share your once-in-a-lifetime joy with the people you love the most. Carmen Hocking and the “I Do Crew” of A Beautiful Wedding would love to put their creativity and years of experience to work to help you plan a unique, customized, stylish wedding that will capture your personalities and reflect what you really want for the most important day of your lives. We team up with some of the finest wedding professionals to deliver exceptional, unforgettable weddings. Take advantage of our free initial consultation to discuss your vision of your perfect wedding.

Think about your wedding style and theme before you book your venue or buy your gown. Will your wedding be formal or will it be casual? Would the two of you like it to be in a ballroom or perhaps in the rustic countryside? Whatever your vision is for your wedding, gather what inspires you and keep pictures, scraps of fabric, and other ideas together in a wedding binder so you have it to bring with you when you have appointments with your wedding professionals.

Over the last 28 years, the A Beautiful Wedding team has planned over a thousand weddings—from large high-end weddings to small unique celebrations of love. We have planned weddings that took place outdoors on a golf course, at the lake, at wineries, on estates, in the beautiful countryside, and in exotic tropical locations, as well as indoors, in homes, chapels, churches, and elegant ballrooms. Whether you are envisioning a modern outdoor wedding in a unique event space, an extravagant grand celebration in a ballroom, an intimate wedding, or an Indian Soiree, Carmen and the “I Do Crew” of A Beautiful Wedding are here to assist you in creating your perfect wedding—without breaking your budget.


Setting a budget should be your first step. Many couples spend so much money on their wedding. If you do not already have a budget set, we will help you arrive at a budget that works for you. Then we will help you stay on budget or come in under budget—and still create the wedding of your dreams. With our range of wedding planning packages, choose the level of support that is right for your needs and budget. We can oversee the entire wedding process with you, including a honeymoon package, or help with just “Weekend Of” coordination, a Groom’s Assistance package, or choose your planning services à la carte. Wedding consultation by the hour is also available. We also offer many other wedding services, including Officiating and travel arrangements, as well as a curated collection of affordable rental items to enhance your celebration.

Carmen and her “I Do Crew” have a wealth of knowledge second to none. As Carmen says, “No one helps you plan your “I Do’s” better than I do!” We will use our creativity, years of experience, and planning expertise to assist you in making the best possible choices. Our goal is to take off all the pressure of planning so that you can experience the joy of the wedding of your dreams. Be assured that your day will flow flawlessly as you enjoy precious time with your family and friends while we attend to the myriad of details for you. 

The A Beautiful Wedding team will provide you with personal service and attention to detail that is unsurpassed. Every stage of the planning process will be in the hands of dedicated wedding professionals who have a deep passion for perfection. Even before your ideas reach the florist or caterer, Carmen and the “I Do Crew” will have brought their extraordinary talents and expertise to planning your wedding, listening to your requests and offering their very best ideas for you to consider.


We will make every effort to meet your scheduling needs. We are happy to accomodate appointments in the daytime, in the evening, and on weekends. Contact us now for your free initial consultation.

From the time you walk through the door for a consultation to the end of your wedding day, you will feel at ease with your wedding plans. A Beautiful Wedding welcomes the opportunity to work with you to create the wedding of your dreams and to elevate your wedding into an extraordinary occasion.
