To plan a celebration that heralds the beginning of your marriage

It was in my own season of wedding planning that I realized the great pressure on a bride as she plans her celebration—you know, that “is this Pinterest-worthy?” question that looms over every decision. Somewhere along the line, we got mixed up and began spotting the wedding as the finish line, when in fact, it’s more like the starting gate.

It’s my great joy in life to come along brides and grooms in what can be one of the most special seasons of life. I get to know each of my couples personally, learning their likes, dislikes and quirks—down to the craft beer & French 75 you two prefer on a night on the town.

Before founding Megan Rusch Soirées in 2014, I saw a lot of women feeling like working with a wedding planner meant waving the white flag on something societal expectations tell us we should be able to do ourselves. 

So, I started with a mission to come alongside St. Louis area couples, re-instill confidence in the choices they make, coach them through every last detail, and take all of the rest off of their plate … all so they have more time to focus on the marriage-building part of engagement.
