What is Event Design?
Great question. Event design is about designing beyond the flowers. Developing your style, figuring out what it is that will make your wedding special, unique and personal, and then pulling together all of the vendors who will be a part of that - linens and decor rentals, lighting, stationery, cake design - is all part of the process.
To me, a beautiful event isn’t one that has every single little detail that Pinterest shows you, but rather a wedding where the design components are considerately planned, and thoughtfully styled and executed in a personal way. I love taking all of the bits and pieces that you’ve imagined and lend an experienced eye to bring it together into a cohesive, well-designed event...not a wedding that you've already seen on Pinterest, but a wedding that honestly reflects the two of you.
The Event Design Process
Throughout the event design process, my goal is to help you create a celebration that looks and feels like you. Rather than using Pinterest as your inspiration, we'll use YOU.
After booking, we begin with a walkthrough of your ceremony and reception spaces. I will then take some time to digest everything from floor plan and flow to colours and lighting, creating a customized event design mood board and design brief that will guide the rest of our decision making. From here, I recommend specific wedding vendors, products, and ideas, with detailed suggestions on colour palette, texture, lighting, stationery, linens and rentals, unique touches, bridal party attire, all while considering the features and limitations of your venue.
On the wedding day, I arrive ready to complete your vision and take care of the details, working with suppliers to ensure a timely and smooth set-up, and making sure the little details and accents are not missed.
Due to my desire to work in close collaboration with couples, event design is offered exclusively to floral design clients.
Limited dates are available each year in order to provide clients with dedicated service.
Event design fees start at $2250.
