HOSTING PARTIES & ENTERTAINING GUESTS!

My love language is...

I wholeheartedly believe...

As part of your family throughout the planning process (and beyond), we are here to field any questions you may have. We act as your Alexa for anything and everything - from addressing stationery to Spanx recommendations. We have a guy or a place or a solution for everything…and if we don’t, it won’t stay that way for long.

As we plan and manage deadlines, we aim to keep joy at the center of our process. We believe that wedding planning does not have to be stressful. It can be a time that brings you, your partner and your family closer together. Marriage is a big deal and the celebration to honor such commitment is a big investment. We honor that by making it an experience from start to finish…not just on the day of your event. Now let’s pop the bubbly. We have a wedding to plan!

we have a guy or a place or a solution...

First and foremost, the foundation for each wedding or event is the investment in our relationship with our clients. This is paramount to all aspects of our job: the design process, how we approach challenges, and our ability to confidently make decisions on behalf of our clients in the heat of the moment.

We hold our clients' trust in high esteem

We hold our clients' trust in high esteem and invest in them personally and professionally, just as they invest in us. Your story is our biggest inspiration in designing an intentional, celebratory, and curated experience. We want your guests to leave the event saying, “That was SO them!” 

To bring your daydreams to life, we use an in-house, one-stop online software to streamline all files. This software notifies all parties when changes occur (and they do) in real-time. This also helps keep your inbox a little less full! We are always tweaking our internal systems, timelines and procedures, and reevaluating after each event to consistently enhance our client experience.

fun facts

a little about  the team

“I knew before getting engaged that I wanted Hillary to plan my wedding. Hillary adapted to every twist that planning and re-planning a wedding in 2020 threw at us and managed to pull of the most perfect day I could ever have imagined. Her positivity and creativity never cease to amaze me. Not only is she a fantastic wedding and event planner but the most kind and thoughtful person as well!”

“Get yourself Hillary as your wedding planner. She is a designer, planner, connecter, family relations specialist and a sanity checker that will allow your fiancé to have her dream come true. You need someone with experience who will navigate vendors, contracts, contingencies, and most importantly, the emotional minefield that is a wedding. This should be the first thing you spend money on... your bride [will be able] to take in every glorious moment because you have the right planner.”
