“Just Getting Started” Inspirational Session

These are sessions we do with newly engaged couples who might be feeling overwhelmed or unsure of where to begin. We offer consultations via phone, Skype, or in our studio in New Bern, NC. Hourly consultations start at $125 with one of our professional, experienced event planners.

Event Styling & Design

Our design style is very clean with touches of personal details throughout the event, giving you and your guests an exceptional celebration. We believe it’s extremely important to not only have a unified look, but also a guest experience that matches the feel and style of your event.

We offer custom event styling using images, color swatches, linens, and written narratives to establish an overall design concept. We work with you to create a true vision of your celebration before we start planning the design elements of your event. Event styling is included with our planning services, but it can also be quoted as a stand alone services to help pull together your event details, colors, style and atmosphere into a cohesive brand for your event. Styling and design services start at $200 and can range up to $4,000+ depending on the event.

  Full Service Planning & Production Package

Our clients hire us for our dedication, style, and experience. Form the first phone call or consultation, you can see the level of outstanding service and professionalism we’re know for. When it comes to planning something as personal and unique as your wedding, a “one-size-fits-all” planning package doesn’t truly fit.

To ensure we can exceed your expectations, we take a limited number of full service weddings each year.
