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.

As of Fall 2021, I am taking a break from wedding planning and event coordination.

It has been a privilege to have been a part of so many weddings and events over the past 5 years, and I am grateful to all the couples and families who welcomed me into their lives! 

The Sweet Bough Wedding Collective is near and dear to my heart - I’m a proud co-founder of the collective, along with the amazing photographer Allison Usavage

The collective serves as an online directory featuring over 100 Ithaca-based vendors of all shapes and sizes who abide by common principles of respect, inclusion, and compassion.

"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)
