Local wedding vendors you should know

Formerly known as two separate companies—Devoted to Details and Columbus Bride & Groom—the newly merged Devoted Columbus aims to provide all the wedding-planning resources you need (beyond of yours truly, of course).  From its free Wedding Resource Center to the Savvy Bride Resale Market, Devoted Columbus is a boon to local brides and grooms. We caught up with owner Jamie Rapavy to get the scoop on the new biz.

Tell us about yourself—why are you an expert in wedding planning?

I have worked with local engaged couples in Columbus since 1995 and have a passion for helping them with every aspect of planning their special day, relieving stress and having fun! I started a planning company in 2001 and since then, have continued to add services to benefit our engaged couples in their planning journey. We also love educating and saving our clients money!

What sets Devoted Columbus apart from other planners and resources?

Our experience, industry relationships and the fact that no one offers all the services we do. I am lucky enough to have an amazing team that all share the same passion as I do!

What can couples expect when they hire a Devoted Columbus planner to plan their wedding?

They will be well taken care of, have someone by their side when needed and take the stress off by having someone they can trust and rely on to make sure every little detail is taken care of!

What’s something about wedding planning that you wish more people knew?

That our services are extremely affordable and a decision they will never regret! We hear all the time from our clients that it was the best investment they made!
