Alchemy – A Seemingly Magical Process of Transformation or Creation

Alchemy Events is a wedding and event planner based in New Orleans servicing destination events internationally.  We design, plan and coordinate nonprofit, corporate, social and other events for every stage of life.  Whether you want to elope to New Orleans for a micro wedding or host a fundraiser or large scale event, our 20 years of experience means we are the best New Orleans wedding and event planner available.  Each of our clients is given an event or wedding website to use in conjunction with our client portal that has wedding checklists, floor plans, design boards, budgeting tools, guest list manager and more.

For two decades Alchemy Events has provided event coordination, design and styling for clients who are looking for something truly unique.  Whether it’s a classic, over the top look to “wow” your guests or a non-traditional wedding that pushes the envelope, Alchemy Events produces events unlike any other, often incorporating breathtaking production elements and custom-made installation pieces.  Alchemy Events only accepts a limited number of clients per year to make sure each client gets the attention they deserve.

Service offerings start at just $500 – our Master Plan option – which helps clients kick off their planning with vendor recommendations and other aids specifically tailored to each client’s aesthetic and budget.  Our Event Management option (in the past often called “day-of” coordination) is available three months prior to the event date.  Extended Event Management services are also available for those who want to be very involved in the planning but need a bit of help along the way.  Our Signature Full Coordination and Design services are available for clients looking for a truly unique experience start to finish.

From Renee & Richie:  “Literal Perfection – Rena and her staff at Alchemy Events will go above and beyond your expectations. Rena began working with us a year before our wedding and it began with a consultation. She wanted to hear our vision and see how she could bring it to life. We talked with her for about an hour, sent over our engagement photos and it was a quick partnership from there. Through the planning process, Rena checked in regularly, came up with ideas, sent mood boards and asked for our input, connected us with vendors, and overall made the out of town planning process seamless.” [read more raves]
