The couple was drawn to the enchanting Rosewood Mansion, but they wanted to put their own twist on things. So, they decided to have a ceremony in the round on the lawn. It was the perfect way to make their big day feel intimate and cozy. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed a magical cocktail hour under a canopy of cafe lights and got to interact with two special guests, burros dressed with flowers!

When it came to the reception, the duo craved something different. A choose-your-own-adventure where the atmosphere buzzed with excitement. Guests could dance their hearts out and indulge in delectable bites whenever their taste buds desired.

Here's where we had to wield our creative wands because we had already orchestrated several weddings in this format in that year alone. But with a dash of garden charm, an organic vibe, and a sprinkle of southern flair, we transformed their vision into a reality that took everyone's breath away.

As the big day finally arrived, there was a twinkle in the bride's eye. She was fully immersed in the magic of the event. It was a joyous sight to behold—a testament to the unwavering dedication of the couple, their families, and their trust in our guidance.

Adventure stories always come with challenges, heroes, and happily-ever-afters. This story is no different.

Enter our intellectual romantics who embarked on their epic wedding planning journey amid a whirlwind of changes---a new city, house, and jobs! Aside from all the transitions, the bride, a superhero in her demanding job, could only steal small pockets of time for wedding preparations. Fortunately, with help from our team, the bride’s mom, and with a great understanding of the couple’s vision for the day, we met the couple where they were in their lives and guided them through the wedding planning maze.
