With the right help, your big day will come together perfectly. All the work we put in ahead of time, planning and preparing, ensures that on the day of your wedding you can let it all go and all you have to do is enjoy the experience. 

What items do couples need to plan for, other than a venue?  

To make your wedding an easier experience, we recommend you book an officiant, florist, DJ or musical group, and photographer. Adding a videographer will help capture those special moments throughout your day. Many couples like to take on decorations or set-up before the wedding and sometimes miss the joys of simply being together with family on the days leading up to the wedding.  

What is the best advice you can give a couple on their wedding day?  

Your wedding day is the day you get to stop planning and worrying. You've put in the work. Planned for everything. We're at that moment where you let go and allow all your hard work to come to fruition for an epic celebration of your love. Anything missed or forgotten—it doesn't matter. You're here, and it's your day. Truly enjoy it!
