We make your vision a reality; stress free.


Sitting In A Tree was founded by Brandie who had the desire to share her passion for planning and organization with those around her. Adding Bonnie and Gretchen to her team gave her the support she needed to thrive.

Weddings can be stressful. They should be beautiful. Weddings can be chaotic. They should be fantastic. We dream of a world where celebrations bring people together and magic happens. Things like stress, lack of time and confusion should never get in the way of a girl having her dream wedding. Let us give you the best wedding day you could imagine. Groom not included.
