We are a freshly minted, full service boutique wedding + event planning firm. What we do is so much more than making things pretty and building timelines… It’s about joy, authenticity, integrity, love, and family. We help create extraordinary experiences and lasting memories, as we become a part of our clients’ families and they become a part of ours. With over 30 years of experience, we believe planning an event {especially a wedding} should be a fun and approachable process, culminating in moments that take your breath away. We love what we do and we want to become a trusted extension of your family. We have planned over 350 parties, corporate and nonprofit events and we have 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?
