You have the vision. We make it happen.
You’re busy and your time is valuable. Hitch Studio can save you hundreds of hours of work by recommending dependable vendors, decorating your ceremony and reception, taking it all down at the end of the evening, putting on those chair covers or picking up a special delivery, and just knowing those little details that may have taken you by surprise. Take those hours of your life back so you can share a little more love, not stress.
If you don’t really have an eye for centerpiece design, that’s fine! We’ll show you options for decor and you pick what you love! The best part? It’s completely FREE. That’s right. All the décor in our collection is included for styling your wedding. We bring it all, set it all up, and take it all down at the end of the evening, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. No returning rentals or storing/selling decorations afterwards. You can just show up and shine as people compliment your beautiful wedding reception.
We go far beyond your expectations on your wedding day. We know what to do if questions arise or the unexpected happens. We’ll help guide your timeline of the day and help you with that feeling of overwhelm along the way. We’ll ask the questions you haven’t even thought to ask yet. You can take a deep breath because we just know. We’ve talked about it.
Renee Bauman may be the owner of Hitch Studio, but she certainly doesn’t do it alone. Started in 2014, her team of four Certified Wedding Planners and 40+ part-time associates have been a part of over 100 Hitch weddings. We would be honored to help with yours.
"They do it all from invitations to decorating, to planning. Everything! It was definitely a stress relief as the bride."
How to get Started:
Step 2: Sign The Contract
Choose your level of service, then a 50% down payment and your signature saves your date in our calendar to make it official!
Step 3: Discovery
We’ll meet several times to talk about your wedding details, style, décor, and centerpiece showcase! (2 Carat Level or higher).
Step 4: Relax
You’ve got Hitch on your side. All you need to do now is GET MARRIED!
We may be the perfect match if:
If you don't have an eye for design or details. Hitch knows where things go, who is supposed to be where and when, how you wanted the room set up, etc. We’ll handle the stress so you can enjoy every. minute. of. your. day.
If you can’t get into your venue until the day of your wedding. Don’t stress. The Hitch team can set up and take down your centerpieces and head table decorations!
If you have some special/complex/BIG dreams for designs, decorations, or installations, let our experienced team figure it out. We can find a way!
If you have too many people (Moms? Aunts? Personal attendants?) who want to lead your day. If you need someone to find a friendly and polite way to delegate tasks, hire Hitch. You may have the helpers, but we have the leadership skills…and YOUR best wishes at heart.
