EXPERIENCE

Hi there and welcome to a world without boring wedding ceremonies, where you, the couple, is the priority.

Here at YEWC we have one guiding principle that we work by:
We exist for the sole purpose of creating a wedding ceremony that is as unique as your love.

To date, we have done this for over 130 couples from 6 continents in Portugal, Spain, Italy, and Croatia.

Our Very Own Story

Andreia Onofre Smith

Estoril, Portugal | August 2019

Carly is a true master of her work! Steve and I got married in August and had been planning our wedding for an exact year before that. Our wedding planner felt that Carly's personality would match up amazingly with ours and she was so right! From the moment we met her through video chat, we felt so excited about the idea that she was going to get to know us intimately so that she could tell our story! Throughout the next few months, she was incredibly flexible and understanding with the meeting days and times. We never felt rushed and always felt heard and appreciated. She is passionate, dedicated, and incredibly charming with her words. Steve and I felt like our story was being told for the very first time in front of those we love most. The words and message were amazing, thanks to Carly. She brought all of the positive vibes!


What Carly says...

My dearest Andreia & Steve, Your beautiful words gave me chills! It was an honor to be a part of your day by the sea. Thank you for sharing so much with me and allowing me to take part in your day. It was a privilege! Beijinhos.

Destination Elopement

Jocelyn Correa

Carly was an absolute dream to work with, and made our day even better than I imagined. Planning a private destination elopement so far away was much easier than I expected - due to having an awesome team which included Carly as a big part of that! She was flexible with scheduling phone meetings (since we were half way around the world and 8 hours behind her), and always seemed genuinely excited to learn about us as a couple, and what she could do to make our day perfect. Her custom ceremony was amazing, and the perfect mix of traditional, silly, and romantic for my husband and me. When we finally met Carly in person, it was like meeting an old friend (as we all ran to catch our boat before it left)! I wish we could have hung out with her longer!


What Carly says...

My dearest Jocelyn! Thank you so much for your beautiful words. Working with you and Michael to create your elopement was an absolute privilege! You two had an incredible journey to find each other and the fact that you shared it all with me in an effort to make your ceremony as personal as possible was an honor. Thank you for your trust. And not to worry, we will find another chance to hang out, maybe in California :)
