Don't be afraid of the winter months- if you choose a venue that is completely indoors, you should have absolutely NO fears.  E M B R A C E  it! 

Perks to January+February bookings:

2.  You can choose a beautiful picturesque theme (inspiration below)

3.  You have gotten through the holiday madness- January worldwide is relatively low key...low key is good.  

4.  cheaper travels for your wedding party + guests.  travel prices are generally down due to the holiday influx!

2016 TREND || COPPER

We are 11 days into the 2016 new year - as we are planning for future events for the year we are noticing one trend sneaking into event decor ...C O P P E R! 

I can honestly say this is an exciting trend- it's time to shake up the "all gold everything" look with a beautiful hue.  It pairs perfectly with greenery + clean, crisp neutrals that will stand the test of time! 

So, brides: we approve...we are all about copper! 

Give Thanks || Ideas on ways to W O W your guests!

Every year Thanksgiving seems to creep up on us earlier and earlier! || This year is no exception....As table design experts, no job is too small for us and every little detail counts, which is why we thought this may help! 

We rounded up our favorite accent pieces+ table decor + floral hues to make your guests say

W O W ! 

There's SO much to be T H A N K F U L for- so on this day why not pull out all the stops? Don't fret you have about a week and there is a 2 day shipping option!

FIVE REASONS YOU MIGHT LOVE YOUR WEDDING PLANNER MORE THAN YOUR GROOM!

PEACE OF MIND

Often, as we begin a relationship with a new bride and groom, we encourage them to make some big decisions – like the band, photographer and other key vendors – then put the planning on the shelf for a little while. If you allow time to pace yourself through the process, you’ll feel less pressure and the season of engagement will be more relaxed. You should feel confident every vendor will arrive on time, and your guests will know when and where they are expected, because we took care of everything. All you have to do is show up on your wedding day.

YOUR SECRET WEDDING PINTEREST BOARD – BROUGHT TO LIFE!                                    

We love the details and logistics of the wedding day because they are essential, but the passion we have for our job is sharing our creativity with a bride. Our showroom is filled with samples of everything from linen swatches to seating options and these selections   can all be made in one place, without the hassle of running around town. We have a team of incredible floral designers, so your flower arrangements are all designed and created in-house. With these resources at your fingertips, there is seamless cohesion in your   design. If you have pinned it and love it, we can recreate it or design with you from scratch. It’s ridiculously fun!

WE DO MORE THAN CHECKLISTS

Your wedding day is not just a giant to-do list. We love to develop relationships with the brides and families who entrusted us with this day. We are professionals who have seen all types of issues arise and found a way to fix them - and avoid them. We navigate sticky family situations with nearly the skill of a marriage counselor, and make plan B’s look like they were plan A’s all along. The full scope of what we do during the time that we spend prepping is so rich in detail. The value of a good planner is quite vastly underestimated.

BUDGET MANAGEMENT                                                                  

Trying to plan a wedding on a budget? Isn’t everyone? Although it seems like hiring a wedding planner could be counterintuitive, we actually help you save money in the long run. We work with you to set a budget and help you stick to it, stretching your dollar as far as it will go. By understanding and recognizing your priorities, a wedding planner will direct you toward wise, cost-effective decisions. This makes everyone happier – especially the person signing the checks {thanks, Dad!}.

WE SAVE TIME – AND TIME IS MONEY, HONEY

Could you redecorate a room? Sure. You’re organized and love interior design…but could you build the whole house? There are often 20+ vendors to source and manage,     family members to instruct, a wedding party vying for your attention and Mother Nature to contend with as you stare down your wedding day forecast. We already know the best vendors, and we have solid relationships with them – which means they not only show up on time, but you also get access to their very best talent, products and top-notch service. You don’t waste time stalking Google because we’ve already done the research. This is a significant part of the investment you make in hiring a planner/designer. Spend your time truly enjoying your engagement – not stressing the details.

After a year or so of  planning, prepping and designing together, there is a mutual bond between us, the brides and their families who trusted us with this most precious and important day. We delight in the celebration and find immense satisfaction in providing a uniquely beautiful and stress-free day for our clients. It’s why we love this work, and why our brides just might love us more than their groom!
