  • 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.

Flashback :: Jessica & Kevin :: Orange Chevron

We were feeling colorful today and wanted to flashback to a modern 2012 wedding we did for Jessica & Kevin.  This couple loved Chevron (which is still such a hot pattern this year)…and loved orange.  The orange stemmed from their love of their collegiate teams! This Ritz Carlton Urban garden ceremony was definitely one of […]
