WHAT REALLY SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER WEDDING AND EVENT PLANNING COMPANIES?
Our biggest difference is our philosophy and our execution. We have a completely different approach to wedding planning than most wedding and event planning professionals. We get you-we're your person-and we're not just saying that.
We do not feel that couples are helpless or clueless. We know that many couples know exactly what they want and they need a partner who has knowledge of the industry to offer insight and transparency to help them to navigate the process. We don't have an, us versus them mentality, it's your wedding day, we are going to put you in the know and we are going to educate you so that you can make the best decisions concerning your wedding plans.
When it comes to wedding and event planning logistics we work in coordination production teams. We do not operate as a one woman show. Each of our couples have a dedicated team that shows up on their wedding day to ensure all the many behind the scene pieces actually get put into place. We hire the best so that you can rest assured all of your needs are being met.

CAN WE REALLY AFFORD THIS?
After spending countless hours going over the details of planning your wedding, so it's everything you dreamed it would be, can you afford to overlook one key element because of your inability to foresee the unexpected incidents that can-and will-happen?
Unexpected incidents will arise on your wedding day. Hiring us is not going to guarantee 100% that nothing will go wrong. We can, however, guarantee that you will have a dedicated team of experienced professionals to handle incidences as they occur, and you will never even know until long after the cake has been cut, the grand exit has been made, and you're sailing away to paradise for your honeymoon.
We are there on your wedding day to take care of those annoying, sometimes even dreadful, hiccups for you and your families, so that you can simply be in the moment, laugh, and dance your feet sore. We suggest you picture your dream wedding day one more time and then picture how you want to feel on your wedding day. If you want you and your family to actually get to eat the custom meal you chose, dance, and mingle, call or email us to set up your complimentary consultation. Together, we can create and execute a dream wedding you'll thoroughly get to enjoy.
WILL YOU WORK WITH THE VENDORS I HAVE ALREADY FOUND?
We would love to work with the wedding professionals you've already selected, and we'll make sure that you get what they've been contracted for-we have your back! It is not required that we only work with people we've planned or coordinated weddings with in the past; however, we do require that our couples work with professionally licensed and insured businesses and operate with contracts .
We find that friends and family, while their intentions are well, have a challenging time drawing the line between accountability and "Oh I am a guest at the wedding". When we say we have your best interest in mind we mean that, that is why we have amazing vendor recommendations at our fingertips that we can easily customize and match to your needs at absolutely no additional cost to you, no matter the level of service you choose. Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to search Google all day for that perfect contact?
We do have a requirement for our couples to work with full service wedding caterers that manage complete food service from start to finish . This ensures an exceptional guest experience and ultimate level of quality in food safety.
IS THE INVESTMENT WORTH IT?
We know there is not a dollar amount that can be placed on your peace of mind, nor can any dollar amount define the value and level of service we provide to our clients. In fact, many of our clients have expressed that the value received on their wedding day went far beyond the dollar amount they paid, and they would happily pay it again if they had to.
We've raised the industry standard in our area for couples who seek a truly tailored, professional, and thoughtful wedding planning experience. We have a dedicated studio space to conduct our client meetings, so we're free from distractions and can focus on you. We carry business insurance to protect our company as well as our clients. We utilize the most up-to-date client management system that gives our couples online tools and resources to plan the details of their weddings with ease. You can invest with confidence, knowing we aren't changing the rate based on your budget, nor low- balling you only to get your business then invoicing for more hidden fees and later on in the planning process with you feeling stuck with no choice but to pay because we use flat rate pricing. Our team continually invests in ongoing training and education so we are able to share the most current knowledge to plan your celebration, which all goes into determining our rates. Our couples value these things, and we hope that you see our tremendous value as well.
WHOM DO YOU WORK BEST WITH?
You will benefit best from working with us if you are open minded, value flawless execution, love all the aesthetic details that go into the overall look and design and look for your dream wedding day to be a reflection of you and your fiancé. We are passionate about planning weddings because we have been on the other side of the table and had a bad wedding planning experience. Planning a wedding can be stressful and there will come a time when you need someone to have your back emotionally. There has to be a level of trust and connection for this to happen.
We are nurturing, open minded and place a high value on respecting our couples and their families for the unique individuals they are. We are very nonjudgmental and accepting, so if you are a couple who is narrow minded, not considerate of others, or simply does not place a high value on having a beautiful, flawlessly executed wedding day, then we would not be a good fit.
We're quite selective in who we work with, because we believe mutual understanding, respect, and connection is so important. If you're considering our team to design, plan, or coordinate the most fabulous day you've ever envisioned, we want to be sure we "click" first, which is why we highly encourage an in-person consultation.
DO YOU WORK WITH SAME SEX COUPLES?
We are LGBTQ+ owned. We work with couples-period. Do you desire a "Gorgeously Styled and Flawlessly Executed " wedding day? If you answered yes, then you are at the right place.
We serve people- no matter your sexual orientation, race, religious background (or lack thereof). It's that simple. Everyone on our team upholds these values.
THE PICTURES ON YOUR WEBSITE ARE STUNNING , WHO DID THEM?
We have been fortunate to collaborate with the most amazing photographers our country has to offer both near and far, all the images you see belong to the artist that took them and we have planned, coordinated, and /or designed all the weddings pictured and partnered to cultivate the events shown.

Shaun was amazing throughout the whole wedding planning process. She always made sure I was on top of everything and sticking to the timeline of the whole wedding planning process. I had a million wedding-related questions, and she answered them within a few hours via a private website. When it came to the day of the wedding, I was able to relax and enjoy the day with my bridesmaids and family. I never worried about anything because Shaun kept me on time and updated. She and Rebecca made sure that our wedding was nothing short of amazing!
