Welcome!

Wedding & Event Coordination

Calm, competent wedding coordination

Have you been planning your own wedding, and are curious about month-of support? 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 month-of support to make sure everything is in place & we're ready for the wedding.  Visit the SERVICES 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.

Who is Kinship & Company?

Kinship & Company is me - Rachel Conroy.  There are few things I love more than bringing together groups of people to celebrate love, friendship & community, and to provide compassionate support for people in times of transition.

Kinship & Company in the news! 

Hooray! Kinship & Company won a 2019 Couples' Choice Award from Wedding Wire - I have loved working with so many wonderful couples over the past 5 years, and am so excited for all the couples I have yet to meet!

Kinship & Co. is thrilled to have been a part of a wedding that was featured on the Junebug wedding blog in 2017!

It was an honor to have been a part of Whitney and Jared's wedding in Ellis Hollow, and to work with so many other great vendors to make their day a success.

(This is also the perfect photo of a true upstate NY wedding - beautifully overcast, lush & vibrant greens as far as the eye can see...)

"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)
