Meet The Planner

Hi! I’m Samantha Been!

My experience beginning in 2014 comes from various roles in hotels, service manager at Austin’s visitors bureau, catering companies and wedding venue management. Needless to say, I’ve been on many different sides of the hospitality industry, but I’ve come to find that weddings are where my heart is.

During the pre-planning stage, I find pure joy in helping our couples create their dream vision while providing guidance to ensure a seamless and fun experience on their wedding day. Then on the wedding day, I execute the plan, but if something goes awry, rest assured that as a team facilitator, I’ll work with your vendors to come up with the best solution while keeping true to your vision and style. You probably won’t even know it happened! I ultimately enjoy guiding couples through their planning journey and seeing their vision come to fruition at the most epic party of their life!

I’ve been in Austin since 2011 and now call it ‘home.’ When I’m not working on one of my couple’s dream weddings, you can find me on play dates or eating Mexican food with my husband and two little girls.

A little love for our photographers.

We wouldn’t have gorgeous photos to show you without the generosity of our photographers.
