full service wedding planning & design 

the unexpected, intimate moments that take place on a wedding day tell the story of a beautiful marriage

Are you ready to experience your wedding day dream turned reality?

Casandra specializes in destination weddings in her hometown of New Orleans, LA because of its unique culture, cuisine, and the romance found in the eclectic venues. Even if only because we absolutely know how to party like a rock star; she thrives on bringing this unique, unforgettable “Big Easy” experience to couples from all around the world! 

More than anybody else or other vendors (yes, even your amazing future spouse!), your wedding planner is right by your side throughout the entire journey, not only on your wedding day. Think of your wedding planner in the same mindset as your insurance company protecting your investment; or better yet; as chief conductor of the orchestra who magically directs all of the moving parts into one elegant, stress-free wedding day song. 

Cassy, as an author,  creative writer and poet, is smitten by wedding planning, because it allows her to tell a live visual story that is beautifully crafted by the passion found in the romantic essence of every couple’s love story.

It’s your day, your way and we are here to give you that Elegance by Dezign assurance. You've thoroughly swiped through my website, and Instagram feed in hopes that you are intrigued? So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.   

let's chat!

Once your date is officially reserved, we'll send over a few goodies to help you prepare for the big day. We're happy to serve as a resource for vendor recommendations, timeline guidance and more!

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos.

We check in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day.

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about three weeks of your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums.

Working with Cassie was a dream! From the time we first say down until well after our wedding night, Cassie has been there every step of the way! She made our wedding planning extremely smooth and she made sure every single thing was covered. She made sure all options were laid out for us and was very considerate of my wife and I's wishes. Couldnt recommend Elegance by Dezign enough!

"Words cannot express how happy I am to have had Cassy as my wedding planner! I am living in Houston, and planning a wedding in New Orleans sounded impossible, but she made it not only less stressful, but the whole process was a lot of fun! She was easy to get in touch with and very responsive not only to me, but also my parents, bridesmaids, in-laws, and anyone else for whatever we might need and any question we had. Cassy had great connections to wonderful vendors for us to use with everything from the photographer to the venue. Searching for vendors can be very overwhelming, but she took the stress and worry out of it! On my wedding day I was able to relax and know that everything from was being taken care of, thanks to Cassy. It turned out beautifully, and all of our guests had a wonderful time! I am so thankful to have had Cassy as my wedding planner to put together the most perfect wedding!"

Cassy made me feel like an absolute princess. I didn't have to worry about anything. She has this uncanny ability to determine what you need before you do. My wedding was everything I envisioned down to the smallest detail. There are no words to convey how grateful we are to you for such an awesome job. Thanks so much for accepting all our phone calls, responding to the never ending emails, listening to my ridiculous rants and making me laugh when I wanted to cry. Casandra and Elegance By Dezign are truly angels. Thank you so much for making my wedding one of the best experiences of my life.

"Mrs. Wiltz and her staff was very prompt and professional. She did an excellent job on my daughter's high school graduation invitations, I returned for her college graduation announcements. She gave me exactly what I wanted. Perfection. Definitely a repeat customer."

"Casandra was amazing! She is very thorough and timely. She stays on top of everything without being reminded to do things. She took majority of the stress off of me and I really appreciate her. Casandra coordinated my sister’s wedding 4 years ago and her work is still exceptional and consistent."

"God sent when I did not expect! Exceptional experience. Went beyond the call to answer all questions and provide exactly what I wanted plus more. Great quality of work provided. From the beginning with wedding invitations to now working on my thank you cards. I would recommend to others.
