Are you the right designer for me? 

That's a great question! The images you see here on my site are my signature style. If you like my style, and we meet and have a good working chemistry, then I say yes! Let's make a beautiful event together. 

What about that signature style? 

Well, my style is unique. My approach to my work and every aspect of my business is unique — created by my own visual interpretation of the world, my experiences and my love of beauty and nature. Not every event I create is the same, of course. That would be boring. But I do have some unique signature elements to my work that are nearly always present and that's what makes my style work. I find that working in that realm is my sweet spot for creating beauty. It's about being true to what I know works. So, the flowers you see, the illustrative styles in paper goods, the vignettes are all my creation. If you like what you see, then I know you'll like working with me.

What is a creative director?

and why do I need one for my event? 

As your creative director, we take all the visible parts of your wedding and make sure they are in line with your aesthetic and vision. The smallest detail you and your guests will see at your event is in line with the overall design. Why does it make a difference? With everything you invest in your wedding day, from photography to flowers, we want your experience, your pictures, and your cinematography to be flawless. Those things — the lasting memories — are what make the details so important and so worth the extra effort.

How many weddings do you do each year?

we are about quality over quantity

Each year is different. We reserve one wedding client per date to ensure our that impeccable standards are met, so availability is limited.  Please inquire early for availability on your event date.
