I have a passion for what I do. I really do want to make people happy. It's about the experience as a whole, feeling it, enjoying it, engaging in it. 

-Marta Bodenhorst, Owner

Working with clients from event conception to executing it to perfection as well as assisting with all the details in between is what we truly love. That is what The Planning is all about.

Our Mission

We are passionate and completely dedicated to creating an enjoyable journey that will blossom into memories you and your loved ones will treasure for a lifetime.

Our Clients

The happiness of our clients and their guests is our number one priority. We connect with our clients throughout the entire event experience from initial consultation to post-event questionnaire and strive to make every aspect of the event as stress free as possible.

Our Attention to Detail

Whether your event is held in our facility, The Venue, or at an offsite location, we do whatever it takes to create a flawless occasion. Ranging from the visible components: event space layout, design, menu creation and bar services - to those items not as noticeable to your guests: vendor choices, timelines for everyone involved, and all the other behind the scene components that make an event so special. Our sense of awareness to each and every detail and our ability to manage every aspect of your special celebration will stand out.
