About us

                             may not be great American literature, but it's ours and we believe every love story is worth telling. We met 10 years ago, in your average, boy meets the girl... (while she is working a summer job) kinda storyline. Our first date consisted of the batting cages and a giant size game of Jenga. What really hooked Melissa though, was the first time Stephen made his famous chicken enchiladas... did we mention Stephen was a chef?

We're so glad you're here

Our own wedding was a small intimate day with our absolute favorite people and it was perfect. We went antique hunting, argued over invitation inserts, and even created a step-by-step instruction manual complete with photo references of what each table would look like. It's a big reason we are so thankful for wedding planners now!

Our story

At the end of the day, and after months or years of planning, we know better than most, it's the way your wedding was captured that can instantly transport you back to the way you FELT on that increible day...

About us

Stephen and Melissa were one of the best choices I made in my wedding planning process. 

I trusted them completely and was able to relax on my special day, knowing that their down-to-earth personalities and excellent artistic talent would carry us through the day smoothly."
