About Us

UPDATE as of March 2020:

How are you managing throughout this season? Don't know which vendors are still in operation? (or even worse..... don't know who might give you a contract now, but collapse later on??)

Thankfully, we do! We are a team of industry pros, intimately connected with the Washington DC and Baltimore vendor market. We know the major players, and know what questions to ask to ensure you receive an air tight contract! Make sure that no matter who you select as a wedding planner for your day, that they are connected to the industry and will be your advocate.

Now booking Fall of 2020 and beyond - All my clients have rescheduled, and dates are becoming limited. Contact us for your free consultation today.


About Us:

As is every star in the sky, each and every wedding is a unique and precious event.

Let's start with you. Because all of our work focuses on that. How did you both meet? When did you know that person was YOUR person? What are the details that tell your story? And, of course - How do you ensure you have hired the BEST team to plan and design, as well as execute, all of the many logistics with an experienced and kind hand?

Start by meeting with an industry professional who only works with professionals. Someone that will value your day as the unique event that it is, and that will make the best decisions for you - your advocate, without question. Hire a team that will produce magical moments, and that understands how to create "Fabulous", "Amazing", and "Spectacular", all for you.

  • Words cannot begin to express how thankful I am for all of the hard work Trish and her team put into our wedding. From the first call (on the phone), to the final call (with our guests at the bar), I enjoyed the process so much that I want to run out and start all over again! She took all of our ideas and expanded on them to form just a wonderful masterpiece! (IMO) I would recommend any couple to her in a heartbeat.
