What fits in my budget?



"What fits in my budget?" 

A question we often hear and it is always a tricky one to answer!

One big factor in creating a quote is prioritizing your wants. Which part(s) of your dream day are the most important to you? Is it the chef-carved prime rib? The picturesque vineyard chairs? How about the perfect placesetting complete with lamour napkins, gold chargers and matching stemware? As experienced coordinators, we help narrow down your vision and priorities for your perfect day.
