Tell me a little bit about your business!
Exhale Events is a boutique event design and coordination company specializing in weddings, social gatherings, and corporate events. Our team is the perfect mixture of creative design experts and type-A organizers who come together to make your big day or special event everything you wish it could be and much more. Nicole and Katharine are the tag team. Nicole is the left brain (also left handed) who is great at all the logistics and details of an event. Katharine plays the right brain role (also right handed) and is the creative guru that helps bring a client’s vision to life. While both can operate on either side, the dynamic of our duo allows us to maximize our individual skill set for our couples.
Some of our clients have their whole event planned and just need us to make sure everything runs smoothly; other clients need us from start to finish. Whatever your comfort level in event planning is, we’re able to help you pull it off.
What makes your work unique?
What sets us apart from the rest is that our duo is cut from different cloths resulting in our clients receiving a more balanced service. It is typical that “birds of a feather flock together” in some businesses. However, that can lead to teams lacking dynamic range. At Exhale Events, we work in an almost yin and yang-type harmony, delivering creative and personalized designs on a type-A schedule.
We’re always so honored when people decide to work with us. You become a part of the Exhale Events family. We’re very aware that each event is a physical representation of our clients, which is why we aim to make sure they are always mentally, physically, and emotionally satisfied.
What is your ideal client like?
Our ideal client is someone who wants to come together with us as a team to execute their event. We’ve discovered that the more our client is able to focus on collaboration than directing, the more successful the event tends to be. We accomplish this team mentality by getting to know our clients and who they are outside of their wedding or planned event. Additionally, we love clients who aren’t afraid to try something new. We love to mesh tradition with innovation.
How do you work with couples to bring their wedding dreams to life?
It’s simple – we strive to understand what our couple is looking for and then build the day around that. It’s important for us to understand what elements the couple loves – perhaps they’re floral people, or they want an awesome band. Whatever it is, that helps us build out a design that also matches the couple’s proposed budget. Logistically, we help them understand the timeline and make sure that we are keeping them on task, all while making the wedding planning process fun. It’s a highly emotional time for a couple and their family. We want to make sure that by the time everyone is down the aisle and saying “I Do” that we’ve delivered the experience that they had imagined it to be. Every celebration is different; every couple is different. So for us, it’s important to capture that during their wedding day.
