Planning

“As a ‘wedding planner’ you design for the present,
with an awareness of the past,
for a future which is essentially unknown.
All in the name of LOVE.”

Perhaps you have dreamed of this day since you were little or find yourself in a whirlwind of wedding “unknowns” that you never imagined. You both have come to this place knowing this is where you want to be. We will take the time to learn your story, how you met, your passions, and then we become your “wedding curator,” overseeing your inspirations and dreams, but most of all, we are your guide along the way. Planning is about logistics and details and design is about discovery and creating your vision; weaving these two worlds together is what we most love to do!

We would love to help you tell your story and guide you along the way!

Concierge

The concierge service includes both planning and design elements. It is perfect for the couple who is busy working, far away and wants someone to “watch over” them and every detail. We begin by discussing your inspirations, dreams, and vision. From there, we create selections and details for your review, offer an optional site visit, provide continuous communication, and more often than not, become a listening ear and someone to continuously guide you along the way. Each concierge celebration truly becomes a reflection of each couple and your unique story.
