Weddings . . . and Elopements

We're passionate about love in all its manifestations! Pedestal offers creative, hand-crafted and meticulously planned events for couples preparing to entwine their lives forever. We specialize in affordable,"anti-extravagant" weddings. Meaningful wedding celebrations with beauty and atmosphere, but also with realistic budgets to accommodate couples who are saving for other goals. We even offer last-minute Elopement Packages for couples who want to bypass the stress and financial burden of a traditional wedding, but who nevertheless wish to mark the occasion with a fun, intimate alternative. Check available open dates on our Bookings page, or call us for details!

Pedestal is a full service wedding and special event planning company with 30 years experience. We’ll handle every detail and orchestrate your special day with grace and confidence. Huge budgets are not required — we use creativity to generate magic! Specializing in “charm on a budget,” we’re the choice of frugal brides across Maryland, Pennsylvania, and DC.


One of our wedding planners will work closely with you to establish your event's overall style, and then use that knowledge to assemble the perfect team to express your aesthetic. Colors, floral decor, lighting, and other elements will be expertly finessed into a cohesive presentation to bring your dream to life.

If you will be blending cultures as well as families, Pedestal can guide you through that process with sensitivity and grace. We have produced Hindu-American ceremonies, Persian-American, and Nikahs. We'd love to accommodate your special cultural traditions as well.

We are also happy to curate LGBTQ ceremonies and have assembled a vetted, LGBTQ-friendly vendor list for that purpose. 

For those seeking maximum savings and minimum stress, our Elopement Packages are available on short notice. We have several options available and ready to schedule whenever you decide the moment is right.
