We’re so excited to start celebrating love again! As you start your search for wedding planners, we want to answer one of the biggest questions we get!

“What kind of planner do I need?”

If you are a planner and have
planning experience you should look for a planner who has 2 years or less experience. With your experience, you can teach them along your planning journey. (Sorry, we have 22 years+)

If you have hired all your creatives and you want logistical support, hire a planning team to support you logistically. (A Monique Affair, Wedding Day Direction)

If you want an amazing planning journey with a trusted wedding advisor, hire a full service wedding planner. (A Monique Affair, Classic Collection)

If you want a highly curated, refined, wedding weekend, hire a full service wedding planner and designer. (Chanda Daniels Planning + Design see )

I hope this helps on your journey to selecting the best planner for you!!

If you feel it's us, Let's Connect (see link in bio).

"We are boxed into a certain style and certain type of wedding and that's not all we do . . . It's all about giving people the opportunity.” - Chanda Daniels, Creative Director at A Monique Affair

Chanda and her A Monique Affair team created and executed on the design and coordination of our Music on the Patio and Golf Invitational event in 2021. She was integral in making it one of our most successful events yet!

On top of being incredible at what she does, Chanda has made huge waves for over two decades, integrating diversity and inclusion of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ couples into the wedding planning industry. We are so excited to see Chanda be recognized for her outstanding work and are proud to work alongside the leadership she provides as a trailblazer of !

Raise your hand if you’ve had a crazy week! You aren’t alone, friend. Honestly, I can hardly remember what normal is anymore… although I’m starting to think these extra few pounds are it!

When so much around me feels so upside down, I find it helpful to remind myself what it really means to be home. That can certainly be a physical place, but isn’t it also a feeling? Like what it feels like to fellowship with like-minded friends.

I know I can’t change how our lives have had to adjust so much this year so I’m doing my best to accept it and lean into the feeling of home. Sometimes, even just hearing my husband voice as he walks through the door can take me there. Now you tell me: what is the feeling of home for you?

Because love ALWAYS wins! Chanel and Carlos had their hearts set on getting married in 2021, even more a bonus if it could happen on Chanel's parents anniversary. They put together a dream team led by Chanda Daniels and literally magic happened! The colors were poppin' and the San Francisco weather was cooperative and these two tied-the-knot in front of their family in an intimate civil ceremony. Check out these gorgeous sneak peeks and be on the look out for even more details about their dream elopement on the blog!!

A snippet from an amazing community pro: "While the whole world marched and posted 'Black Lives Matter,' the lack of Black and brown people being represented was finally being noticed. Industries, the wedding industry included, were called upon to look in the mirror at their own business practices."

The incredible Chanda Daniels of A Monique Affair speaks on the intersectionality of the Black wedding industry and the LGBTQ+ community. Her words are incredible and powerful, so check out the blog post to keep reading!
