From wedding day design…

to day of coordination…

to serving the global community.

“We believe the best thing a person can do in this life is serve others” -Megan Anne, founder and coordinator

 

I’ve been exposed to cultures around the world my entire life. After coming back to the states from Haiti, I wanted to find a way to fuse together love, fun, creativity, and service. When you book with us, you’re helping couples in the Northwestern Zone of Haiti pay for a wedding celebration and marriage license that they wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford. In addition, we use our time in country to host a women’s education and empowerment seminar to educate women on their value, skills, and the importance of their contributions to the world. I’m blown away by the fact that our job is to help people on one of the biggest days of their lives both locally and globally, AND we get to tell women how important they are.

Below are just a few of the lives we have been able to help thanks to our donors and clients. Raise the Veil has had the pleasure of marrying and celebrating over 650 couples and sharing with over 300 women that they are valuable and important. They are the reason we do it. Our goal is not to “Americanize” our Haitian friends. Our goal is to empower the communities we invest in so that they can empower their communities and beyond.

Free, because…well… finding a planner and coordinator can be a lot like dating. Sometimes you hit it off on the first interaction, and sometimes it turns into a laughable story to tell at dinner parties.

 

You have a lot of vendors to book, we know. Let us be the easiest choice you make for the big day (besides choosing who you’re marrying). We come to you, we chat about some (very important) things, and then you have the option to book us or not to (buuuut we have a feeling you’ll love us).
