About

THE BOOK

An East Coast Wedding Planner was designed with the East Coast couple in mind. Steeped in tradition—such as the thought that every celebration should be planned while keeping the ocean at heart and that there's nothing better than a good down-home kitchen party that rocks into the wee-hours of the morning—while infusing true Maritime hospitality meaningfully. An accessible and beautiful keepsake book that brings the knowledge of a passionate East Coast wedding planner, Katelyn Bellefontaine of Elegant Productions, with practical experience planning weddings of every shape and size in Atlantic Canada for nearly a decade.

Whether newly engaged and local or planning a destination wedding on the East Coast, An East Coast Wedding Planner is there for readers every step of the way, from month-by-month wedding checklists to curated questions to ask all vendors, to how to prioritize and budget for your perfect day. Designed by Rebecca Dimock it includes full-colour photos of diverse East Coast weddings as well as original calligraphy from Scribble and Script.
