Overdone trends. That old school dance Aunt Suzy wants.
Not on our watch.

Unless you want that, of course

They handed over the reins. We took it from there.

‘Traditional’ isn’t in our vocabulary

Personally, we love flowers. But if flowers are ‘meh’ to you or you don’t want to structure your evening like the typical wedding – we love that for you. In here, it’s not about how your wedding should go. It’s all about your authenticity as a couple. We make sure those thoughtful details and big day priorities are front and center from ceremony to late-night snacks.

Hey there! I grew up in the dry heat of Phoenix, AZ but now live in my favorite swamp, Washington D.C. My dream job? Owning a cat cafe. Just kidding (kind of). I’ve wanted to be a wedding planner for as long as I can remember. But not just any planner. The cis-heteronormativity of the wedding industry kind of gives me the ‘ick.’ I want to help all couples celebrate their love in a way that feels good to them. Not how society says ‘this is what a wedding should look like.’ If you’re ready to plan something that feels aligned with what you value, I can’t wait to hear all about your dream wedding.
