Years of experience have taught us a valuable lesson: to craft truly exceptional weddings, we choose quality over quantity. We intentionally limit the number of weddings we take on. This allows us to pour boundless passion and creativity into each event, especially yours.


Our design and planning services start at $4,900, while catering starts at $65 per guest. Every wedding is a one-of-a-kind affair, so the final pricing will be tailored to match the distinct scope of your vision.


We offer our services not only throughout Northwest Arkansas but also for destination weddings. Your dream location is within reach, and we're here to make it a reality.
