Yep, we're introducing one of our coolest partners, THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE, wedding planner extraordinaire, with a whole new offering you'll dig. THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE takes its inspiration from The Smiths' song "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out," which informs love for NYC-based founder and owner, Lara G. Mahler. She sets out to give amazing moments to all of her clients, including you. Lara's wedding planning services cover all the bases including officiating, month-of coordination, and full-steam planning, but one of her major goals is to make sure you don't go into debt with a spendy New York City wedding.

"A Pop Up Wedding is everything you want in a wedding, without the added stress or price tag. It’s the City Hall-style wedding, but in a cool, NYC venue with a DJ, florist, bouquet, boutonniere, photographer, food, drinks, and dessert. Sorry, I have to catch my breath… It’s a day where you will be left with those nostalgic memories you will obsess over for the rest of your life. I promise to create a fun and completely stress-free experience that will not leave you in debt… that’s how the idea of THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE was conceived, and everything THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE still stands for today. – Lara Mahler, Founder of THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE" "You can tell she takes pride in her work and doesn't just consider it a job. Incredibly conscientious and I would recommend her all day every day!"- Samantha Freeman "Lara never treated us like a number and more like our wedding was her top priority. If I had to do it again, I would hire her for full planning so that I could enjoy and focus on the FUN part — making decorations! I will recommend her to all my engaged friends and hope I get to work with her again in the future. :)"- Natalie Lucas "Lara was truly a pleasure to work with. Her cool demeanor, thoroughness, and open communication really helped to make our day run as smoothly as it ever could. I can say that because of her my wedding day was perfect." – Sasinya Scott THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE is non discriminatory and welcomes everyone of all religions, races, and sexual orientations.
