3-Phase Planning Process

In this phase, we start with an introduction meeting. We enjoy getting to know our couples and hearing more about their love story either in person or virtually.

Once we’ve held your first introduction meeting, the planning of your dream wedding or event has begun! From there, we’ll handle initial logistics like showing you your planning portal and choosing your vendor dream team.
