cu·rate (v): to have care, select, organize and present, using professional and expert knowledge.

We are a full service boutique wedding + event planning firm, grounded in joy, authenticity, integrity, love and family. What we do is a deeply personal experience and so much more than making things pretty and building detailed timelines… We believe planning an event {especially a wedding!} should be a fun and approachable process, culminating in moments that take your breath away and last a lifetime.

With over 40 years of combined experience, we have planned over 350 parties, corporate and nonprofit events and helped over 150 couples tie the knot, jump the broom, smash the glass, take seven steps, and more…

What can we dream up with you?
