Understanding Your Priorities

We will discuss what is important to you and what is not. This will help with your planning and your budget.

Finding Your Perfect Venue
You may have already selected your venue but if you have not, based on your guest count and budget we will make recommendations, visit with you and assist with selecting the perfect venue.

Design the Details

With your ideas and my eye for aesthetics, I will create a comprehensive and customized design plan.

First, we will start to pull your design elements together from every element of the wedding day design.

Next we will create a design board with all the details together in one space.

Finally, nearer your wedding day, we will create a mock-up of your complete design, from the linens, napkins, chairs, menu’s and of course the stunning floral
