In order to maintain exceptional service I only book one full-service wedding per day. The initial free consultation will give you an overview of what your needs and wants are and their approximate costs. During that time we will discuss your vision, venues, colors, themes, and budget. It is helpful to bring along swatches of the dresses and photos of your venues, as well as any magazine clippings of flowers that have caught your eye. Expect to spend a minimum of 1 hour for your consultation. We get the first proposal to you within 48 hours. If you decide to book with us, your retainer is 20% of the estimate. This retainer holds your date only; you can make changes up to 2 weeks prior to your wedding date. A 50% installment is due 3 months prior to your wedding date and the balance is due 3 weeks prior to your event. After a retainer has been received we meet with you as many times as needed to get all the fine details accomplished. We can also meet with you at your venue site to complete a walk-through, to help you visualize your day.
