Our signature style is rooted in a love for neutrals and organic designs, drawing inspiration from the captivating allure of the outdoors.
We are deeply passionate about intimate weddings that radiate comfort and effortlessness. For us, it's about creating an experience that feels not just special for the day but worthy of being etched into forever.
We offer event management, often known as month-of coordination. While clients maintain most planning responsibilities, our approach provides close guidance. Our active involvement begins 60 days prior to the wedding, offering personalized assistance for seamless transition and execution.
Our more hands-on approach is partial planning. Planning initiates with a venue site visit. We collaborate on design and discuss vendors during a planning kickoff, followed by email introductions to our trusted vendors. Two strategic check-ins help our team stay connected during planning. Our approach ensures comprehensive support while empowering clients to lead the planning.
Our most all-encompassing experience is design and full service planning which involves a multi-faceted approach: we delve into budget preparation and management, vendor selection and contract negotiation, design conceptualization, monthly meetings . We are collaborative and true thought partners at every vendor meeting and in every discussion, ensuring your voice is heard at every stage of planning.
Our firm offers a variety of planning options. From streamlined event management and hands-on partial to our comprehensive design and full-service planning, our approach is tailored to our client's desire for how much guidance is needed. Whether guiding from a few months prior or orchestrating every detail, we're committed to a stress-free, collaborative experience.
We prioritize delivering incredible experiences. With a focus on our craft, we work with just a handful of clients each year. Our commitment to making every client feel valued and prioritized is unwavering and sets the standard for the planning experience.
We do not have minimums, as a variety of factors should be considered in a wedding budget. We suggest budgeting between $500 - $1,000 per guest. The weddings in our portfolio reflect these guidelines.
We believe in crafting weddings that breathe intimacy and embrace the beauty of the outdoors. We love a neutral palette, stress-free wedding days, and the dance party of a lifetime. Our approach isn't just about planning an event; we curate unforgettable experiences that echo your love story. Details matter.
Well-planned weddings involve just as much creativity as they do logistics. We're matching the same energy for design as we do for logistics by way of timelines, floorplans, client checklists and questionnaires, and frequent meetings.
Most importantly, we value our client's trust. Successful planning hinges on a client who trusts our expertise and recommendations.
Our curated list of vendors reflects trusted partnerships from our years of extensive industry experience. However, we remain open to new collaborations believing flexibility enriches our client's vision and sparks fresh perspectives for our team.
Email is instrumental to wedding planning alongside the backbone to our planning process, Aisle Planner. Aisle Planner serves as our comprehensive online planning platform, providing contract storage, checklists, seating chart creation, and RSVP tracking —all tools to orchestrate a seamless planning experience for our clients.
Email is our preferred communication to ensure we are keeping discussions centralized and organized. Meetings, whether by phone or in-person, are scheduled in advance. This strategy ensures efficient communication while honoring our work-life balance. Additionally, this method proves particularly valuable given the diverse locations of our clientele, allowing us to accommodate their schedules regardless of geographical differences.
