Each and every client inspires us. Walking down the street inspires us. We feel the creative freedom to find inspiration in other avenues besides images from past events or shoots. We love to think outside of the box! By checking out fashion magazines, trendy store windows, home decorating blogs and more, we pull unique ideas, color palettes and textures that you wouldn’t normally think of... Essentially, a gorgeous event has all of the same elements as a fabulous outfit, a perfectly organized store or a CONSISTENTLY decorated home. Let your imagination run wild with us!
The benefits of hiring an event planner can be immeasurable. We believe that memories of the planning process and the event itself should bring about joy. Our service allows peace of mind and assurance for our clients. Our mission is to provide a fresh and creative approach to the event planning process, coupled with highly detailed and personalized service – exceeding your highest expectations. Part of our mission is to stay current with the latest trends and subtly incorporate them into the traditional elements of your event. Whether your vision is exquisite and timeless or stylish and hip, we are dedicated to helping you create a celebration so unique and cutting edge that your guests will go home wishing for more. We have built strong established relationships with our vendors, and are happy to guide you towards vendors that suit your style, personality + budget.
