One thing all of our clients are typically looking for —-> Something different and something that is timeless and has staying power.  That is what we do when planning hundreds of events every year. From small cocktail parties and birthdays to galas and weddings.

The details are what will set your wedding apart from any other. Wanting a vintage wedding feel in the middle of the city?  Go for glam and fun hotels with vintage plates rentals!   Don’t want the same cake?  Go for a custom cake topper that you can reuse as decor in your home!  Sno Balls?  Heck yeah!  Parasols and lanterns and fun crazy colors – we got that!  We love a pretty cake and fruits infused with flowers.

Make your guests go wow!  We do wedding planning, event design and decor. flowers, stationery, lighting and calligraphy!

Woodend Bridal Bouquet

Even though we are so tired it of it being cold out…I wanted to bring out our last bridal bouquet of 2013.

We have clients coming in for their fall and winter weddings now and this is the perfect bridal bouquet for a late fall wedding.  This amazing wedding was at Woodend and I just loved this design.

Can’t wait to see what we will design for you!
