This process is presented in a visual storyboard of color, textures and styles that will serve as a graphic road map as the details of your event unfold. It is our job to be your visionaries in the creative process, arriving at an experience that will encompass everything you imagined and beyond.

  • Five stars in every category doesn't even begin to describe how good Paula Smith is. Before hiring Paula as our event planner I had worked with her in her capacity as a graphic designer and her artistry, attention to detail, timeliness, and desire to deliver the very best she could, gave me the confidence that everything Paula touched would turn to gold. And it did. The stakes were very high on this job as it was a very complex event and I was going to be away the week prior through the actual event; she was in effect stepping into my shoes. Paula got up to speed very quickly and upped the game at the same time, bringing a level of expertise and tapping into resources that enhanced our event beyond what we had envisioned. It is seldom that one can give an unqualified rave review but Paula earned that and more! And, perhaps the most important part, Paula's calm, kind and generous spirit infused every conversation and interaction.

    responded with the following comments.

    Forever grateful to you Tara for having the confidence to bring me into this challenging fold and letting me run with it. Not always the case to have such creative license, inspiration from a client's art collection and the most gorgeous private venue setting one could imagine. This assignment was completely inspiring and exhilarating! And working with you on the front end, a dream! I truly appreciate and am very thankful for these kind words. (And for the record, I DO own a wand and keep it handy at all times!)
