A wedding brunch is the perfect way to provide and showcase appreciation for everyone who is contributing to your upcoming wedding day. A day filled with relaxation and a break from the hectic schedule of planning your wedding day.


Welcome Party

(Weekend of wedding)

The perfect way to give thanks and welcome those guests who have traveled from out of town to be a part of your big day. It gives your guests an opportunity to mingle and form connections before the wedding. This carves the way for a natural and fun wedding day for all guests.


Rehearsal Dinner

(Evening before wedding day)

The rehearsal dinner is not only to have the final run through before the wedding day but it gives the couple an opportunity to express gratitude to everyone who has meant so much to them as they continue to be a part of your life and wedding. This night should be organic and stress-free with a select invite list.
