Kim MorrilL - Owner
A little about me and how I started YPB...
I have always loved bringing people together to celebreate and make lifelong memories. After college, I got into corporate event planning and made the transition to wedding planning after 5 years. Wedding Planning allows me to take my love for events and put it toward helping people. It is incredibly rewarding to work with clients to make their lives a little easier and their weddigns a little more stress free.
In March of 2022, we celebrated 14 years, and each wedding has taught me and this team so much. I really feel like our time in this industry allows us to help you and connect you to others you'll love, too.
What Clients Say
"Katelyn made my wedding dreams come true last weekend and I couldn’t be more grateful for her attentiveness, calmness, and organization throughout my planning process. I worked with her for over 2 years due to a Covid. I always felt better after talking through things with her and she understood my style so well that the day of looked above and beyond what I imagined. I keep getting so many compliments on how the venue space was transformed and how smooth everything went and I don’t even feel like I did anything to make that happen. She handled all the vendor communication with postponing and finding a new date and setting up meetings and confirming everything, she was also able to explain what I wanted way better than I could and the whole day was magical. I’m so glad I ended up getting the full planning package because I couldn’t have anticipated the amount of things that I would rely on her for. It felt like she thought of me every step of the day from bringing my bridesmaids a garment steamer to making sure there was food and champagne waiting for us while signing our marriage license to handing us slices of our cake at the very end of the night to bring up to our room. She also made sure everything that was ours got back to our room. When I say I didn’t have to worry about anything, there’s many more details that go into it!"

To give you that peace of mind, we have a few things that matter deeply to us:
We believe in transparency.
We know it helps to have all the information available to you before you book, so we try to lay down everything about our services to help you make your decision when it comes to booking a planner: prices, services, and options. If you have any questions, we’re more than happy to answer them in your consultation!
We believe in a customized service.
Each couple comes to us at different points in the planning process with different needs and budgets, so we tailor our services and meetings to what you need most.. At any time during your time with us, we can add on meetings, day-of hours, or upgrade to any package if you feel like you want to have us handle more details for you.
We believe in an event that reflects YOU.
If you look at our portfolio, you’ll see a variety of styles at many different venues. Each wedding looks different, because every couple has a different style, set of priorities and different budget. We will never push you to do something that isn’t a priority for you, or isn't in your budget.
And if you choose to book one of our packages with design services, we’re going to work with you to develop a unique and creative event design based on your style, set of priorities and budget too.
We believe that kindness goes a long way.
We have built our team with kind, supportive humans and have cultivated some amazing relationships with other vendors through every wedding we've been a part of. Our relationships with other vendors are just one way we will positively affect your planning experience and your wedding day.
Meet the team!
We are a TEAM of planners. Each of our couples will work with a dedicated lead planner who they’ll collaborate with throughout the planning process to understand your needs, preferences, and style. But since we are a team of multiple planners, every couple is supported by the entire YPB team’s knowledge, experience, and lessons learned. Our planners share notes about each venue they work at, share new tips and tricks we’ve learned.
Meet the amazing humans on our team:
NOTE: There are still some amazing team members that have been a part of our team for awhile that we just don't have headshots for yet - stay tuned!!
