So you’re engaged and that part was fun but planning a wedding feels like taking on another full-time job that you just don’t have the time for right now. You have the ring and you’d like to just show up on the wedding day, eat good food, and celebrate with friends & family. Can it be that easy? We’ll still want a little feedback from you to make sure we’re on the right track as we style your story’s celebration but trust us, we have a lot of experience and we would relish the chance to “take it away” for you!
Or maybe you have tons of ideas and unlimited time and you are really looking for a full-on, available for everything, completely dedicated co-conspirator in all things celebration-centered. Bring it on! We’ll help you sort through those pinterest pictures, focus on your style elements, and plan an incredible party with lots of fun along the way!
Your style will dictate how this part looks. You can text us the basics and let us run with it (ok, we do prefer to meet you at least once in person, even if it’s just a quick coffee). Or you may need three meetings just to get through all your inspirations, stories, and list of what you’ve seen at friends’ weddings that you definitely don’t want. We get it. And we’re there for you.
