We are all of us stars, and we deserve to twinkle.
— Marilyn Monroe

We have a passion for creating unique events that you can enjoy, while we take care of the details.

Modern wedding planning for the stylish couple.


Over the years we have heard many people express skepticism about the true value of a wedding planner. That is until they are planning a wedding.

A good wedding planner will almost always pay for itself. Consider it the best investment (aside from your spouse) you are going to make for your wedding day. We take the time to listen to you, understand what you want, and make it happen. We have done weddings with 20 guests to 1000 guests. Yes you read that right. 1000.
