Our Process

The process is simple, we must know who you are in order to CREATE something special for you. We begin with our initial meeting and qualification process.  Then, we are able to detail out your personal and/or company style and brand. It is important to us to know the details so we can deliver them in unique and memorable ways.

Each event requires different components based on the overall objective of the event. Our experienced team will take you through each step of the process which can include story boards with design inspired photos, color swatches, and written proposals. In the end, these tasks allow us to perfect your event and provide you with an experience that leaves you wanting more!
