About Us

We craft a one-of-a-kind event planning process for couples who believe in the power of family and what it means to be a part of something meaningful. Our service provides you with so much more than just a well-planned event– it’s a journey balancing creativity and detailed strategizing. From behind the scenes planning to front-and-center implementation on event days, our team works tirelessly to create an unforgettable experience.

We believe that for our couples, memories of their wedding day should be even more than what they’d imagined they could be. Those memories, and seeing the happiness on their faces as we send them off at the end of the night — that’s what makes it all worth it.

This event is yours. We’re here to bring it to life.

Our Core Values:

Kindness & Gratitude  |  Curiosity  |  Easy Event Days  |  Success through Structure  |  Work Hard & Have Fun

Our Allyship Commitment:

All are welcome here. We are actively working to balance race, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity in our industry through internal hiring efforts, partnerships with community organizations, and education. Feel free to ask us any questions – we are an open book and continue to learn more every day.
