Extraordinary Weddings for
an Exceptional Value
Hi, I'm Arielle, owner of Wedded Perfection.
I started this company with the belief that at the very least, every couple deserves to have a wedding coordinator to ensure that they can be guests at their own wedding.
So many unforeseen things can go wrong at a wedding or any event. Multiple questions get asked from guests and vendors alike. Little details get forgotten or pushed aside because of time. Time goes by so quickly when you're having fun, that special moments you wanted to have, get lost in the shuffle. Trust me, it is so much better to have a point person to take care of all of the details that you put into planning your wedding so that you and your guests can just have fun.
Let's talk about the elephant in the room. Weddings are expensive, and the first vendor couples think they don't need or can't afford is the wedding planner. But what if the wedding planner could pay for themselves? With that goal in mind, I started searching and vetting the best vendors around. I not only looked for amazing florists and delicious bakers, but for the vendors who didn't charge outrageous prices for the same service I could get elsewhere. I created a team of vendors that I knew I could always trust and always call on to be phenomenal. We work with these wedding partners a lot and because we bring them business our couples receive fantastic discounts. We also know the best areas to save money and cut costs, because we have been doing this for a long time and we are professional planners.
Professional Wedding Planner
Not only can I call myself a professional wedding planner because I have been planning weddings for almost a decade, but I actually have the degree to back it up. Yep, you can actually get a Bachelor's of Science in Hospitality Management specializing in Event Coordination. A degree I earned at the University of Central Florida Rosen College. There, I gained the knowledge and experience I needed to create, plan, organize and coordinate all the details that go into planning events and weddings both large and small, including a range of affairs from intimate events and parties for 15 to large multi-day, multi-location events for over 3,000.
I have worked with various vendors in every part of the field, including photographers, entertainment specialists, florists, decorators, and venue managers to learn about the inside of the industry from their perspective. I combine this hard-earned knowledge and passion with my own personal style to create an unparalleled service to others. Owning this company gives me the chance to use my creativity and the ability to give my clients the full attention to detail they deserve. Bringing my event coordination background to the wedding industry lets our clients bring their vision to life.
Serving Southeast Michigan and Central Ohio
I am originally from Miami, Florida, but I started Wedded Perfection in 2013 when my husband and I moved to Columbus, Ohio. I figured it was a new area, and a new opportunity to put my skills to use. My first wedding I worked alone, and after that I realized, I needed a team! I started out hiring college students to be interns. Some of them grew with the company and took training courses to became lead day-of coordinators. As the company grew I hired assistants who had a background in the events industry and showed real enthusiasm for the chance to learn and develop their skills in the wedding industry.
When my daughter was born I had to hand over my company to the team I had created in the hopes that I had trained them to deliver the same service that our couples had come to expect. They exceeded my expectations. So, when it came time to move to Michigan, I knew I had a team I could trust to deliver exceptional service to our couples in Ohio. I had to start the business over in Michigan, and so I once again started my hunt for the best of the best in the wedding industry.
We once again can proudly say that we have an amazing team of invaluable vendors, and staff that works with us to help our couple's wedding plans come to life. I still personally take care of the planning logistics, while my fantastic team is on the ground attending meetings, setting up and tearing down venues, and coordinating during the events. I couldn't do it with out them!
The Wedded Perfection Team

Cayla Exline, Lead Coordinator
Cayla started working for Wedded Perfection as an intern, studying Communication at Cedarville University. After growing and learning the ins and outs of wedding planning, she decided to stay on and has become one of Wedded Perfection's most valued coordinators. She is very detail-oriented and passionate about the little aspects of each wedding. Her favorite thing about planning weddings is seeing the big day come together.
In her spare time, you will find her reading, exercising or spending time with friends.
Carrie Zeroski, Lead Coordinator
Bold, sociable, & organized, Carrie discovered her passion for event planning while working for her families catering company. As a mother of 6, she is quick on her feet, an amazing problem solver, and a great emotional support. She has an eye for details and is constantly striving to make every event one of a kind. She finds inspiration in fashion, travel, and most importantly love!

Sarah Varughese, Lead Coordinator
Avid wedding photographer and business owner of Sarah Elizabeth Photography, Sarah also serves Wedded Perfection as a day-of coordinator. Having over two decades of experience in the industry, when couples do not hire day-of coordinators, the photographer usually has to step into that role having to not only do their job, but the job of what a coordinator would do as well. With an eye for the arts, Sarah's attention to detail is unparalleled. She always strives to befriend her couples and make them as comfortable as possible on the wedding day.
On her down time, you can find Sarah weight lifting, taking pictures, and hanging out with her pet T-Rex (who tends to accompany her to weddings in her bag).

Aleia’s undeniable attention to detail, and her great sense of responsibility makes her an indispensable asset to the Wedded Perfection team.

Jenny Danker, Assistant
Driven, dedicated and definitely a go-getter, Jenny is mostly known for her round the clock energy and her ability to adapt quickly to any situation by applying her problem-solving skills. Her passion lies in both the business and creative aspects of the company and her mild obsessive compulsive disorder comes in handy when it’s time for all the details. A multitasker, ruled by both the left and right side of her brain, she gets an enormous thrill by negotiating a vendor’s contract on her client’s behalf or by administrating all the business’s operations.
Jenny started as a college intern with Wedded Perfection, but almost a decade later now has experience in not only weddings, but corporate and leadership event coordination as well. She brings a unique and versatile design aesthetic to every event that she produces. Whether it’s a simple intimate backyard reception or a black-tie event, Jenny loves going above and beyond for all of her clients, while witnessing their vision and dreams come to life.
