About Us

A Beautiful Memory® is your full-service celebration consultant, creating wonderful wedding experiences by giving personal attention to the planning and execution of every part of your wedding. No request is too large, no detail too small – we create unique wedding experiences that reflect each couple’s individual sense of elegance and fun.


Our goal at A Beautiful Memory® is to completely and successfully manage the entire wedding process, making it possible for you to enjoy the experience and focus on the wedding as a celebration of love.

Most couples and families today lack the time or experience to plan this epic event themselves and create a wedding that reflects their personal tastes. Our expert presence and constant effort promote a stress-free atmosphere throughout the months-long planning phase, culminating in an unforgettable ceremony day as its triumphant conclusion.

A truly beautiful wedding goes beyond the bride and groom to share the happiness of the celebration with all involved. Our desire is to give everyone the freedom and peace-of-mind to relax and enjoy the day. It’s how beautiful memories are made.


  • Design Consulting Creative concepting, from traditional to unique events, backed by the experience to guide you toward the inspired and away from the mundane.
  • Advance Preparation The small details have a big effect on the overall experience – whether invitations, accommodations, or rehearsal dinner. We do not skimp on the details.
  • Event Direction The ceremony and reception are symphonies of movement and complexity. A Beautiful Memory is the conductor ensuring all parts are played perfectly.
  • Vendor Supervision We have the experience and contacts to match your preferences with the right professionals, delivering the best and most within your budget.
  • Family Mediation Traditional roles are not always well-defined in modern families, and the result can be unmet expectations and hurt feelings. As an independent third party, we can help make decisions and be a soft shoulder to lean on.
