When did you decide you wanted to open your own company?     

Alison: Elodie and I met working for a company that manages non-profit organizations. I specialized in operational logistics, Elodie ran the crap out of the events and conferences. Through a series of a-ha moments, I realized that rather than running other people’s passion projects, I could run my own. Around that time, I also officiated my first two weddings and totally fell in love with it. Between Elodie and myself, it became apparent that by our powers combined, we could make a splash in the wedding planning scene.

Elodie: I have been working with weddings in some capacity for the past 8 years. When Alison approached me with this opportunity to get involved it was a logical next step that I couldn’t refuse. It also was apparent that there was a gap in the market for planners who wanted to focus on progressive, modern couples which is right up my alley, so it was a perfect fit!

How did you come up with the name of your business?                 

The name has two literal meanings, one a little more tongue in cheek than the other: First of all, we’re not a one-size-fits all operation. The name encompasses all the kinds of events we can cater to. That said, Alison is just shy of 5’1” and Elodie is 6’2” so we are quite literally both tall and small. 🙂

How long have you been in business?         

Tall & Small turned 1 in January!

What is your favorite part about what you do?               

It sounds a little cliché, but meeting really awesome couples who compliment and bring out the best in each other is a huge privilege of what we do. We particularly love helping a couple incorporate their personalities and story into their wedding, to really make it their own, and not a cookie-cutter moment. We’re #girlboss feminists all the way and it’s really fulfilling to us to help couples feel comfortable thinking outside the box, flipping the script, and making their own traditions.

Do you have a favorite memory related to your business?     

Like we mentioned before, a huge joy about choosing this industry for our day-to-day work is getting to know the couples we work with. Hands down, one of our most memorable moments came from a wedding where the bride and groom were expecting their first child. They surprised their families and friends during the cake cutting to announce that they had given the baker a sealed envelope from their doctor and that the top tier of their cake would reveal if they were expecting a baby boy or girl. Once they announced the gender, their families rushed up to their table, hugging them, so full of excitement and love. Not a dry eye in the house — including us!

District Bliss

Do you have a favorite type of event/wedding/etc?        

We love non-traditional weddings where the couple is really invested in incorporating their personalities and values their celebration, putting a unique spin on the status quo.

District Bliss

Is there anything else you’d like our readers to know about your business?   

We like to consider ourselves progressive wedding planners, planning for today’s modern couple.

Fun facts: Elodie speaks French fluently and Alison is fluent in American Sign Language!
