About Our Team

13 wedding seasons, over 400 weddings and events planned!


Our philosophy is simple. Your wedding day should be THE BEST DAY EVER.

It’s that one special day, next to having a baby and winning the lottery, that you’ll reminisce about time after time. Every day when you glance at your wedding pictures, or celebrate your anniversary, or receive a wedding invitation, you’ll relive all those incredible memories. Every time you share your love story with your future children and grandchildren, you’ll remember the joy. Your wedding day is that one amazing love story you want to relive over and over again simply because it was the best day ever.

Our mission is to bring unimaginable joy on your wedding day by flawlessly designing and executing your wedding day vision. There’s no room for headaches, drama, and mishaps in our world.

Working behind the scenes, with you and your chosen vendors, we conceptualize your day, review every single detail of every wedding moment, fine tune the logistics, and bring your swoon-worthy wedding fantasy to life.

There will times that you need a sounding board (there will be times you need to vent!). We offer as much or as little help as you need. It is your day, and we are here to make it unforgettable. Packages are customized to your personal requirements – after all, no two brides are the same! We match you with outstanding vendors who are pre-screened and who match your vision, budget and style perfectly. We are committed to making your wedding or event as unique & amazing as you are.
