Tell us about your business!
A contemporary approach, specializing in events that focus on immersive guest experiences, design-forward selections, first-class vendor teams, and a 'play by your own rules' attitude. You are the muse.
What would you like couples to know about your business?
We are authentic, artful, experiential, intentional, empowering, immersive, transparent and effortless.
This is some feedback we have had from a recent client Lynn : 'We did not want a cookie cutter event and we definitely did not get one. Seriously, we could not have had a better team of people. It was the best compliment, to hear that everything throughout our day just reflected exactly who we are as a couple.'
What inspires you?
One of our core principles as a design team is finding inspiration outside of the wedding world – art, architecture, typography, food, fashion – we are always collaborating with movers and shakers in other industries to keep things fresh and dynamic for our clients.
What motivates you to do what you do?
The work that we do reflects what have always been my personal values and passions - empowering others to share their authentic selves, producing tailored experiences, explorative self-expression, lifting up small businesses and artists - I wake up every day amazed and grateful that we’re here thriving in it.
How would you describe your working style?
We begin with a deep dive into your style, personality, and vision. Event design is more than colour schemes and wedding themes. Our design process creates a well-rounded, comprehensive and distinct narrative of every area, including food, drinks, attire and music.
How would you describe your style?
Inspired by the convergence of modern art, haute couture, adventurous gastronomy, authentic moments, uncommon concepts, and true party vibes to evoke remarkable experiences.
Who is your dream client?
Couples who want a first class vendor team they connect with, trust and lean on for expertise,
value unique, immersive experiences, party vibes and candid moments. Those couples who appreciate design details and creative input, as well as the pros who can bring them to life. And clients that want to have a hand in the planning process and executive decisions with an intuitive team guiding the journey, as well as those that follow their own rules and want to take a modern approach to the overall vision.
What is your advice to couples getting married?
Trust your vendors and let go of the pressure to be 'timeless'. There’s no way to guarantee that you’ll look back in 20 years and love everything – but if you embrace what you’re truly excited about, you’ll look back and remember just how incredible that felt. That’s a timeless emotion and it rarely comes with playing things safe.
Do you have custom packages according to individual needs?
Everything you need, none of what you don’t. The goal is very simple: to complement your story with creative choices, authentic moments and enduring experiences through a candid, empowered planning and design partnership.
Do you travel for weddings?
We go where the party goes. Our team has 14 years of experience designing creative events everywhere from North America to the Caribbean, Europe, Asia, and beyond.
Where would you love to travel to for work?
Bali, Morocco, Nantucket, Ulvik. The place that inspires you.
