Wait...Not a Wedding?

Shannon's right-hand-woman and our team's wedding planner extraordinaire.  Alex's extensive background in catering, along with her infectiously relaxed nature, help keep all of our couples well supported from the day she starts working with them until the encore is finished at the end of each bash.  Everyone needs an Alex in their life.

Leah is deep and conscientious, thinking about all the important details of your day and curating the perfect itinerary to bring it to life. She is the ultimate day-of team player, being the nexus of all your vendors and family members to ensure your wedding is seamless, effortless, and fun.

Eliza is our young/old soul who brings her own signature energy to all of her couples' events. She will crack you up while keeping stress and fears down, probably bringing you into her fold recalling a story about her family and her dog, and will in the end make sure your day is set up for the most brilliant success.
