Welcome!

Kinship & Company is committed to supporting individuals, couples and communities through thoughtfully-orchestrated weddings and events, and by serving people through times of transition in their lives.

Wedding & Event Coordination

Calm, competent wedding coordination

Have you been planning your own wedding, and looking for information about help with planning or day-of coordination? Or maybe you just need a little bit of help figuring out some specific details for your wedding?

 

You're in the right place!

I can help with course-corrections in the middle of the planning process, or I can provide partial planning support to make sure everything is in place & we're ready for the wedding.  Visit the WEDDINGS page to learn more about coordination & consultation packages.

 

Looking for help with another kind of event?

I am happy to work on whatever event you have in mind - I have experience planning anything from baby showers for 40 people to public festivals for 400+.  Send me an email, and let's chat about what you have in mind!

You can also fill out the contact form on the INQUIRIES page.

Have you been planning your own wedding, but hoping that you won't have to actually work your own wedding? You're in the right place!

Visit the SERVICES page to learn more about consultation and month-of planning packages.

The Kinship Fund

As a way to give back to our local and global community, Kinship & Company will donate 100% of the proceeds from 10 consultation packages each year to different humanitarian, social & racial justice organizations/causes. 

In 2020, all proceeds from 10 consultations will be donated to aid organizations that are working on the ground to alleviate the refugee crisis in Syria.

Kinship is all about forming social relationships and community - and the fund allows for some of the resources that are put towards the kinship-forming work of weddings to be re-directed and expanded outward in order to strengthen our kinship-bonds with communities all over the world.

"It's easy to let the words "my wedding planner was the best!" roll out of your mouth, but truly: Rachel's unique combination of poise, organization, humor, talent, communication skills, and aesthetic leaning were absolutely what made my wedding and saved my sanity.

One year later I can still feel the gratitude for her presence and hard work just as viscerally as the day of my wedding."

-Michelle R. (2015 Wedding)
