It's The Happiest Day of His Life too.

Let's face it! Not every guy or girl know what to ask for when it comes men's arrangements. There is always so much fuss about the bride and rightfully so! But....Let's not forget the groom! He will want to look his best for the wedding as well. I try to make it a point to recommend something special for our grooms in each wedding package! From local craft beer in the men's suite- to a special cut & shave at The Tapered Gentleman in Waynesville or even a tasting tour with the fellas at Elevated Mountain Distillery in Maggie Valley, NC. The boys should have their way as well! One of the things I love most about this area is the range of day trips and entertainment for everyone. If there are

The Privilege is Mine!

When I first started this business, one of my top priorities was to find a way to give back to my community.

But all of my anticipation has lead to memories of growing up on my grandparents farm in South Georgia. No threat of snow there just sweltering heat and the occasional cool breeze that traveled over from the coast to give us a bit of relief. As a girl, this old barn was full of tractors and heavy equipment. There would be bushels of pe

Destination Wedding Unknown!

Let's face it planning a wedding can be time consuming particularly when you don't live in the area. We understand that not everyone has a wedding planner. One of the things we are passionate about is promoting local artists, buying local and maintaining relationships with other local vendors and businesses. We work with several wedding planners as well as offering built in packages for our wedding clients. After years of seeing couples appear so relieved when we offer suggestions on where to have the rehearsal dinner or where their guests might stay- (something I consider to be a common courtesy)-It occurred to me that destination couples, even just busy couples could use more inclusive s
