Confessions of love have forever been documented in song lyrics. THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE takes its inspiration from The Smiths' song "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out." Lara G. Mahler, founder and owner of THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE,  spent years falling in love and breaking hearts, all the while guided by the wit and wisdom of various  Morrisey lyrics.  LGM's life came full circle, moments before walking down the aisle, her friends, family and future husband stood by her side, as the song filled the air, capturing yet another life long memory.  This song for Lara G. Mahler is a representation of memory and that is simply what THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE is set out to do, help couples create moments on their wedding, they will obsess over for the rest of their life.

TPIM is non discriminatory, love is love.  My job is to help couples of all religions, socio-economic back grounds, race and sexual preference.  I aim to make the planning process, affordable, collaborative, fun, stress free and memorable.

THE PRIVILEGE IS MINE was born in Ridgewood, Queens with the idea that couples should never feel like they are going into debt for their wedding.  Everyone deserves a little support during the most emotionally charged time that in their lives.  Sit back, relax and let me do all the work.  oxox
