Hi, I’m Kerriann, Founder and Chief Wedding Designer at Kerriann Maetke. I teach brides how to DIY the custom wedding of their dreams on a budget. Giving brides the tools they need to stay calm, cool, and collected while designing and executing the perfect wedding is my passion.

Do you want to know a secret? I am not a wedding planner. I have no background in the wedding or event planning field. Nope. In fact, by day I am a law professor. Probably didn’t guess that, huh?
So how did I get here? Well, for starters I got married! Not only did I get married but, I got married 6 weeks after one of my dear friends. I had a lot of stress in my life at that time. I had recently moved, was studying for a big test, starting a new job, and facing down barrel of law school loans.
I also didn’t know the first thing about planning a wedding! But I learned. Fast. Armed with my god given talent for planning, a level of detailed orientedness and organization that only a legal education can provide, and, of course, Pinterest and Etsy, I moved forward.

I started to notice that even though I had a lot going on, I didn’t find wedding planning stressful. Sure, I didn’t love crunching numbers. But I loved deciding on a theme, making lists for craft projects, and making decorations. I loved all the little logistical steps. I found it extremely rewarding to make my plan and budget and execute them.
Turns out, all my hard work paid off! Our wedding was a blast, (of course that is my totally unbiased opinion). But, for real, people were impressed. Our guests had a great time. Afterwards, some of my girlfriends and family members who were recently engaged asked for advice for their wedding. From there, things just kind of snowballed.
I noticed that a lot of brides felt overwhelmed by all the organization and level of detail that a wedding requires and that I loved it! But, I also noticed many brides didn’t have the budget for an expensive wedding planner.

That is how Kerriann Maetke Design and youdontneedaweddingplanner.com were born. I decided to put my type A personality and love of planning to good use by creating an affordable course to help you plan an affordable custom DIY dream wedding.
