Revel in your Journey | Collaborative planning that takes the carrots off your cake plate (keeps it fun!)

 

 

 

Collaborative Planning, Design, + Coordination

Crafting the Vision, the Team, and the Experience
Planning a wedding involves a bit more than choosing buttercream vs fondant frosting, blush peonies or green hydrangea in the centerpieces, and merlot or cab as dinner wines. The good news is that between the lively budget discussions, the bridesmaid dress decisions, and the occasional family drama, we get to eat cake, play with Pinterest boards, and sip wines, all in an effort to throw an epic celebration and treat your friends and family to an unforgettable weekend celebrating the love of your life. Count us in!

In this package, we:
