Environmentally & Socially Responsible Event Planning * Consulting * Staffing * Catering

What our clients say about us...

  • “You have extraordinary attention to detail. You took care of the little things (like the place setting utensil twine and the food platter you sent up to the girls’ room) that we didn’t even think about. We’d be able to tell future clients to feel confident that everything will be taken of with style, even the things they may not have thought of beforehand.” – John, on his wedding

Thinking about planning your own wedding?

Recently I had a fantastic opportunity to conduct a post-wedding interview with a former potential client about her wedding experience. After an initial consultation they both chose to go with a banquet hall's services due to several personal factors. (Including 70% of the guests were in the area - More on this later)

This is for those brides to be, who wish to gather intel on what their upcoming big day may be like without a planner, Sharon and Dave had this to share about their experience...

What it’s like working without an event planner:

  • - "We thought we could do it on our own instead of hiring a planner, however it was very stressful to do it all on our own. Planning our wedding was one of the biggest challenges for us, especially since neither of us has ever planned such a huge event before. We weren’t sure what to expect or how we’d feel on or before the day."
  • - "We’ve had 1 year and 8 months to plan it, yet we were still scrambling to coordinate with vendors up until the day of the wedding. Even though we’ve tried to keep everything simple with not too many extra frills – we’ve had just the basics such as church, reverend, organist, photographer, reception venue, food/beverage and music – was still a lot of work."
  • - "In the end we’ve survived and our wedding turned out perfectly, but it would’ve been much nicer to get some help from experienced event professionals. It would’ve saved us so much time and headache from dealing with vendors and thinking of all of the little details right up to the very last minute before we say “I dos”."
