Philosophy

As the world becomes more connected, it can feel as if individuals are becoming less connected.  We like to think we can change that - one party at a time. Your wedding is an exciting moment and it can take shape in a multitude of ways.  The philosophy that has ensured success the last 15 years is simple - your wedding should be 100% FUN while taking place in a financial realm that is comfortable.  Nothing makes us happier than seeing a room full of family and friends making memories that will stay with you long after the party ends.  

Process 

Weddings come in every shape and size and we realize "financial comfort" is a moving target.  Any dollar spent needs to be well spent; therefore, budget is a priority. We will create a budget that achieves your financial goals as well as the vision for your event. From that point, we can begin to match you with vendors that are a perfect fit. While there is no limit on communication, we do make a practice of sending monthly updates with tasks to be completed. We understand that it is easy to become overwhelmed and this allows everyone involved to stay on track and adjust details as needed. We will be with you every step of the way.
