Tell us about your business! 

As a design-centric, full service wedding company, we specialize in crafting distinctive, imaginative events rooted in experience, style, and effortless luxury. Our expertise lies in tailoring personalized weddings that artfully narrate each couple's singular love story through authentic, thoughtful elements. 

What would you like couples to know about you? 

We believe that the most unforgettable moments are woven into an experiential narrative. Taking your vision as our guide, we craft a personalized experience that encapsulates your distinct personalities, cherished memories, and love story. Our goal is to design an exquisitely detailed event that not only holds significance and joy for the couple but also leaves an indelible mark on their guests. Beyond that, we introduce an immersive element to the wedding and event industry, aiming to fashion something extraordinary and genuinely distinctive. 

Where are you based? 

We are based in Santa Barbara, California. 

Do you travel for weddings? 

Yes! We gravitate towards tropical environments, and we are ready to create a unique, destination experience anywhere in the world. 

How would you describe your style? 

Our design aesthetic embraces a lively, natural, and carefully curated approach, effortlessly embodying an elegance that is both bold and uniquely romantic. The goal of this style is to craft an irreplicable and intimate gathering, transforming it into a sensory feast for the eyes, palate, and soul. This approach integrates lively elements, a natural aesthetic, and thoughtful curation, resulting in a visually stunning and emotionally resonant experience. 

What inspires you? 

First and foremost, our inspiration always starts from the couple and their unique preferences. Additionally, we are endlessly inspired by our travels, the natural world, music, interior design, and fashion.

What motivates you to do what you do? 

We get extremely passionate about each project we take on, and our couples genuine excitement provides the greatest motivation for collaboration. We love when our couples are open to creativity and an unconventional approach. There are no rules, and we are here to push creative boundaries and strive to never replicate a past design. 

How would you describe your working style? 

Our working style is high touch, detail focused, and caring. Wedding planning is personal, and we support our couples to bring to life a celebration and experience that is true to them. We are deeply committed to our couples and take an authentic approach to each event. We are thorough and thoughtful in everything we do, designing immersive experiences that engage all of the senses - sight, touch, hearing, smell, and taste. 

Do you have custom packages according to individual needs? 

We offer full-service planning and partial-planning, both including design and coordination. We are perfectionists and pride ourselves on dedication - committed to ensuring couples the best experience, which is why we only take on a limited number of projects a year. 

What is a favourite product or service that you offer and why? 

Full-service planning is the most optimal package, since you have an expert guiding you through the process from start to finish, leaving no room for error or mistakes. We start by establishing priorities and developing a budget that works best for your unique needs and preferences. We conceptualize the vibe of your day and by selecting every detail from the venue, location, and each and every vendor, will build out the vision for your day. 

Where would you love to travel to for work? 

We would love to create a destination wedding weekend in Mexico, Greece, Spain and Australia. 

Who is your dream client? 

Our clients are style led, and greatly value design and their guest’s overall experience. With a passion for travel, our clients enjoy a relaxed-meets-luxury lifestyle and love to spend time in properties surrounded by nature. They love a good party and can trust their vendor team to produce an unparalleled event.

What is your advice to couples getting married? 

My advice to couples getting married is to embrace authenticity and prioritize decisions that hold personal significance, rather than getting caught up in fleeting trends. Relish the entire wedding experience and try not to let minor details overshadow the joy of the moment. Remember to have fun, let loose, and celebrate the love that brings you together.
