If you’ve landed here, it’s our job to convince you that hiring an expert to guide you through planning the biggest day of your lives will be the best investment on the whole event - and many of our past clients agree!
We’re one part florist and designer (our nickname is the Joanna Gaines of Fayetteville) , one part wedding fairy godmother, one part confidante, one part therapist! Most of all we thrive on exceeding our clients’ expectations and building meaningful relationships time and time again.
Every member of our team has multiple years of experience planning weddings and events and we know that choosing us means you’re putting your trust in our team. We don’t take that lightly!
We take the stress out of planning a wedding so that you can enjoy every moment and focus on what really matters…marrying the love of your life! If you’re looking for a planner to help you plan a celebration full of laughter, love, and joy, and one that is full of unique and meaningful details, you’ve come to the right place.
We provide a range of design and planning services for our clients. Our favorite scenario is when we are hired to produce an event from start to finish. This begins with finding the perfect venue and finishes with bidding farewell to your last guest as the event concludes. There is so much that happens from that initial site visit to the event day and we guide our clients through the entire process. Along the way we manage all the logistics for creating an incredible event while simultaneously designing a beautiful, authentic experience. We believe design and planning go hand in hand. Our approach is cohesive and holistic as the design decisions inform all the planning details.
We understand that each wedding is different. Below are the three most common planning packages that fit our clients' needs.
