About Wedding M.D.
Meet Martine Dardignac
The Wedding Doctor
I'm Martine, the owner of Wedding M.D. I would define myself as a practical romantic. I realize life’s not always a pretty story, but when it is, I love to indulge in the happiness of the moment. As a certified project management professional (PMP), I worked for many years at Microsoft, and I use that corporate training to make me a better wedding planner. In addition to my certification as a project manager, I'm also a certified wedding and event planner (CWEP).
I love to laugh. A lot. Some may call it excessive, but I've been told my laugh inspires others to share in that joy with me. I invite you to come experience the fun.
You know how there are some things you're just born to do? Event planning is like that for me. Family and friends have always looked to me when they needed to plan those special moments. While most people seem to find it stressful, I thoroughly enjoy it.
What's most important: God, family, friends, and helping others be comfortable (including perfect strangers).
Things that interest me: I read like a fiend! Approximately one book per week for as long as I can remember. Food that tastes good is a requirement. I love to travel, although I don't get to do as much as I'd like.
Why Wedding M.D.?
Planning a wedding is a process, and is a lot like herding cats. There are so many pieces, an entire team of people you need to establish, all while balancing the needs of yourself and those that are closest to you.
There are two things I hear all the time from my clients: 1) I’m so glad I hired you, you’ve made this so much easier, and 2) I really thought I could handle this myself, but I couldn’t. I’d like to let you all in on a secret: wedding planning was never designed as a solo activity. Putting together an event of any size would require help, but if you also add in the emotions, expectations, and expense of a wedding, you can start to see where help isn’t just a nice-to-have.
My role as your Wedding Doctor is to help diagnose your challenges, prescribe a solution specific to your circumstances, and work together to build a plan that's right for you.
I bring professional-level project management skills along with a background in communications and graphic design to help execute your wedding the way you intended it. My mission is to create a personalized event for Wedding M.D. couples by providing top-of-the line service through efficient and cost-effective planning that allows for full enjoyment of their wedding day.
As an award-winning, certified wedding planner, I'm excited to handle your wedding and empowering you to enjoy your day to the fullest.
