Celebrating a couple's love, honoring a coming-of-age, marking a milestone, these are the magical moments that we hold most dear. 

 

Whether casual or formal, mordern or rustic, big-budget or small, we know that these events are special and we want the day to, most of all, reflect you. We offer your choice of full-service planning, day-of coordination, or specific consulting to give you exactly the support that you need. Contact us to discuss services that meet your needs and fit within your budget. We specialize in cultural, artistic, and LGBTQ celebrations.

We know that fundraisers and festivals aren't just about selling tickets, they are also about raising awareness, developing relationships, and building community investment. Thoughtfully weaving strategic branding and message delivery into the design and execution of an event can deeply root an organization's purpose and mission within a community. We can work with you to upgrade your event, increase revenue and in-kind donations, and most importantly amplify your voice.
