  • Welcome to our blog!

    We are thrilled that you've taken the time to peruse our blog!

    Even for the most organized client, there are no substitutions for experience. Your own wedding or event should not be the test you give yourself to see if you can plan and design it alone....nor should you hand it off to your friends who seem to enjoy 'planning a party'. You only get one shot to make this perfect! Allow yourself to enjoy your wedding engagement or life outside of work as we keep you calm and on track {and on budget of course}, while we personalize a wedding or event far better than you can imagine.

    With over 30 years combined experience in the wedding industry, this team is known as the 'go-to-gals' if you want a unique and stylish wedding that has every detail and logistic executed in advance.
