Wedding & Event Coordination
Calm, competent wedding planning & coordination
Have you been planning your own wedding, and are curious about month-of support? Or are you & your beloved looking for someone to help you plan the entire event?
You're in the right place!
There are packages & options for wherever you are in the planning stages. I can come on board at the very, very beginning, 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 & planning packages.
Looking for help with a non-wedding 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!
Sweet Bough Wedding Collective
Looking for other wedding vendors in the Finger Lakes area?
Check out the Sweet Bough Wedding Collective!
Sweet Bough was started by me (Rachel, of Kinship & Company) and Allison (of Allison Usavage Photography).
It's an independent project founded with the goal of supporting couples planning weddings of all makes, shapes, and sizes in the Finger Lakes region.
We maintain listings of other vendors in the Finger Lakes area, listed on our vendor community page. We realized there wasn’t one place couples could go to see a comprehensive list of local wedding vendors, and we wanted to create a space where small businesses & individuals who offer services for weddings in the Finger Lakes could all be listed together!
And it gets better... every vendor listed on our community page has also agreed to our "Terms of Engagement" - basically, they've all agreed to be inclusive, supportive, non-judgemental & transparent.
So - if you and your beloved are planning on getting married in the Finger Lakes, know that we are here to support, encourage and celebrate with you!
Who is Kinship & Company?
Kinship & Company is me - Rachel Ostlund. There are few things I love more than bringing together groups of people to celebrate love, friendship & community - which is what weddings are all about!

I'm so glad you're here, and I look forward to meeting you. Ready to get in touch? The contact page is waiting for you here.
Kinship & Company in the news!
Kinship & Co. is thrilled to have been a part of a wedding that was featured on the Junebug wedding blog last year!
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."
