  • Creating Your Wedding Timeline & Layout
  • Orchestrate Your Rehearsal Ceremony (and sometimes rehearsal dinner)
  • Manage the Wedding Day so You Can Enjoy it!
  • Setup, Supervise Vendors, Follow & Manage Timeline, Handle Emergencies or Problems, and Clean Up (So your family doesn’t have to)

    We are so ecstatic about our Fall wedding schedule here at Bella Baxter Events, especially because we get to travel this year! Finally! It’s been wayyyyy too long.
