Experience: There are a lot of decisions when planning an event & it can feel overwhelming pretty quickly. We’ve been in the industry for awhile now — from weddings to birthdays to corporate events & conferences — we've seen it all. No matter what situation is thrown at us, we respond with a level head, a game plan, and a smile—so you can focus on having a good time. Our promise to you is to understand your vision, refer vendors based on your personality, aesthetic & budget, and make your planning experience fun and enjoyable.

Enthusiasm: Event planning is more than checking timelines and booking vendors — you need someone who’s just as excited for your event as you are! Our team prides ourselves on being the perfect mix of personable and professional. We promise to keep it real with you from day one. Whether it's selecting a stellar vendor team, picking out the perfect linens, or curating a great guest experience — our goal to be the best investment you make for your event!

While we are based in Pittsburgh, PA, we go wherever the party takes us! From the coast to the mountains, we love designing & planning at both new and familiar destinations all over the globe.

Every budget is different and every penny spent on your celebration is valuable and honored. However, on average, our clients spend as a whole for the entire event (food, flowers, rentals, venue, etc.) around $100-$300 per guest for parties & smaller events and $300-$850 per guest for weddings & larger events.  

Love is love. We believe in inclusivity and serving all clients regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, identity or orientation. We value kindness, professionalism and collaboration, and always work to showcase these values through our brand and in every interaction.

From our experience, your venue coordinator is responsible for overseeing the set-up, food and beverage, and logistics as it relates directly to the venue. An outside wedding planner will coordinate and manage ALL logistics and design details with your entire wedding team.

A great planner will not only make YOUR life easier and stress-free when it comes to planning, but will also streamline and simplify the jobs of your entire vendor team. This allows each vendor to deliver on their own offerings at the highest level, aka bringing your vision to life!

Nope! But we work with amazing balloon stylist who can bring your vision to life.
