Full Service Wedding Planning and Design

Our Planning Process

Our standards are impeccably high. With a decade of experience planning hundreds of weddings, we’ve perfected the art of producing an event that is as well run as it is beautiful no matter the location. We specialize in creating one-of-a-kind experiences, memorable for how well it captures who you are as a couple and celebrates the community you are bringing together. It is also our goal to give you an amazing experience while you are engaged, full of creativity and camaraderie. Our full service wedding planning and design team meets you where you are in the planning process and guides you every step of the way.


    Every client has a single point of contact in their lead planner – you are not passed off to an assistant. We do not restrict your access to us and we flex to your schedule and communication preferences.


    At the same time, our team of full time planners collaborate on all events. We never book all of our planners on one date so there is always a back up planner just in case. In addition, our team of over 15 event assistants undergo extensive training for their roles in hospitality, production, and day of support.


    Unsatisfied with the turnkey online resources, we developed our own customized web app for unparalleled wedding planning organization. It is the hub of all planning activities and is personalized to each client.


    With a company background rooted in corporate law, we excel at negotiating contracts. We are also fierce advocates for our clients in every situation.


    We created a network of vendors that is both wide and deep. Our clients are all different, so we “matchmake” from a field of talented and proven professionals rather than requiring you to work with a single vendor we use over and over.


    We have a lot of fun with our clients. We are unflappable. No family drama is too great, no request is too small. We are always honest, flexible, and warm. We never forget that it is your wedding (not ours) and that hospitality is the center of our job.


We create a custom, cohesive design concept and then carry it out in every aspect of your wedding, including help with all the fun little details that make your wedding truly special.

We begin by listening. What inspires you? Where do you travel? We then create a one-of-a-kind design board to help convey the visual voice of your wedding. We include both inspirational images and specific design recommendations.
The most fun day, hands down, is the mock up. Instead of dragging you to rental showrooms we bring a variety of rental items to our studio. We spend time mocking up options for your table settings, and when you arrive we play until it’s perfect.
All of our design ideas are brought together at the wedding and styled to perfection by our team of esteemed wedding planners. We are meticulous in bringing this vision to life — there will even be an assistant whose job is just to straighten chairs.
