“…We wanted to talk about the beautiful wedding that we had in McCall right by the lake! Katie and Dave hired us a year before their wedding and wanted us to help them with Partial Planning. They wanted elegant and fun for their guests, and everyone was so happy with the results! Katie always envisioned black and silver decor with blue hydrangeas as the flowers. We worked together to come up with a gorgeous, minimalist, elegant style that fit well with what she had described to us. Everything came together so beautifully, especially with the help of all the great vendors listed below. With such a great team and plan in place, the wedding went off without a hitch, even though a little wind tried to disrupt our setup…”Read More

“…Today we are going to be sharing our thoughts on the increasingly popular “First Look”.

Just one reason why they are so crucial to the wedding day!…”Read More

“Details are what tie the whole wedding together, and missing one can sometimes cause an unnecessary hiccup during your special day. Planners are there to make sure that not a single detail is missed, and that everything is where it needs to be. Planners cover the details of all the vendors and venues, and will research them for you as well. We also will attend the meetings to make sure that everything is covered, and will be there for the rehearsal to make sure that nothing was missed. There’s no need for a bride to stress over the details, that should be our job…”Read More
