Merry Beth Turpin began Aisle of View wedding consulting in 1989. Since then, Merry Beth has coordinated weddings for brides and grooms that have included private home weddings, venues in the Puget Sound area, an elegant affair in England, and destination weddings around the United States.
If you asked her clients to describe her, the comment made most often would be that Merry Beth is super organized and has an unflappable demeanor. She comes to the wedding fully prepared, having gone over every possible detail in advance, but can also make split-second decisions if a crisis occurs or if she has to move from Plan A to Plan B.
She has been a member of the Association of Bridal Consultants since 1990.
Weddings are Merry Beth’s passion. You won’t find a wedding consultant more dedicated and willing to work with you to turn your dreams into reality.
Junebug Weddings selected Aisle of View as one of the world’s best wedding planners & designers.
Seattle’s Premier Wedding Consultant
At Aisle Of View we offer a complimentary one-hour consultation where we interview the prospective client to be sure we can work well together. Once hired, we begin the planning stage by preparing a budget for the client. The budget is very detailed and gives the client a clear picture of what they want and the cost to have those items. Once the budget is tweaked, we begin the search for vendors. Initially, we hire the key vendors (ceremony venue, reception venue, photographer, caterer, and florist) to ensure that the client has the best possible vendors available for their wedding. Throughout the next few months, we complete the vendor hiring process. We attend meetings with vendors, provide monthly to-do lists or tasks, assist with design and tablescapes, select save-the-date cards, invitations, escort cards, place cards, menu cards, programs, and are always available to the client via phone or email. We are always in attendance at the wedding rehearsal and will coordinate the rehearsal if the officiant doesn’t attend. On the wedding day, we are the first to arrive and the last to leave – going through a long checklist in order to execute a “perfect” wedding.
Our mission is to exceed the expectations of the bride and groom for their wedding day. This will be achieved by listening to the client’s wishes, desires, and wants and then assisting them with suggestions as they move through the planning stages. We will be instrumental in vendor selection by referring those vendors whom we know are responsible and reliable – and their personality and fee fit well with the client. The wedding day will be the end result of all the planning details – and we will ensure the client that we will orchestrate a smooth progression of events on their wedding day.
