Classic: judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality
and outstanding of its kind.
Curated: selected, organized, and presented using expert knowledge.
I'm Rachel: lead planner and proud owner of Classic & Curated Events. I have been a part of couples' big days for over 3 years now, and it's been the cherry on top of a lifelong dream to plan weddings and events. I found my passion and talent for it at a young age, quickly becoming the go-to person to plan celebrations for family and friends. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, I hopped on a plane 5 days later and started a year-long venture teaching English in Thailand. When I came back, I started a job at The Dallas Arboretum as an Event Manager. From there I found myself as the Assistant Venue Director at the beautiful Knotting Hill Place, which was a blessing in more than one way. Being given the chance to work even more in detail with clients, I came to realize it was time for me to branch out on my own and take as much of a hands-on approach as possible to making people's wedding dreams come true; which brings me here!
It's no surprise that planning an event can occasionally be a little tricky and stressful on your own. That's where I come in! Imagine having someone you can go to at any point to help navigate the ins and outs of the industry! I've worked with over a hundred clients, and have seen the ups and the downs from so many different angles. I want to be the person that helps you solve the puzzle that is event planning, while making it feel fun, unique, and personalized to you. Let me help you make these moments in your life the exciting and enjoyable time it should be!
Our dream is to create curated and personalized events for our clients. I take your vision and expertly turn it into a reality. Design is more than just the perfect aesthetic (but don't get me wrong, that's important too). It's an attention to detail that speaks to each guest that says "this is so THEM". I believe every event should be a detailed and personal reflection of each couple, and I can't wait to do that for you.
