Full Planning & Design Service With Design Studio South

Personalized Planning - Getting to Know You

Our journey begins with a unique approach - a couple of questionnaires that allow us to truly understand you and your partner's vision, preferences, and personality. We want to ensure that every detail of your special day resonates with who you are as a couple. Through these questionnaires, we gain insights into your preferences, allowing us to curate an event that reflects your personality and style.

Designing Your Dream Wedding- Mood Boards & Design Decks

Next, our team meticulously crafts a personalized mood board that incorporates your preferred aesthetics, color palette, and inspiration. Our goal is to capture the essence of your envisioned day. Once you approve this visual masterpiece, we seamlessly transition into crafting a detailed design deck that brings your vision to life. From florals to rentals and every intricate detail in between, our design deck showcases a comprehensive array of choices that resonate with you and your fiancé's unique tastes.

Finding the Perfect Match- Vendor Selection & Coordination

One of the most crucial aspects of any wedding is selecting the right vendors. Our experienced team goes above and beyond to ensure that each vendor is meticulously matched with your vision and budget. From photographers to caterers, we leverage our industry connections and expertise to secure the finest talents who can execute your dream day flawlessly. We understand the personal connection you share with certain vendors, such as photographers and videographers. That's why we facilitate 2-3 Zoom calls to ensure your comfort and confidence in your choices.

Seamless Execution- On-Site Management & Coordination

When your big day finally arrives, our commitment to perfection truly shines. We are the first to arrive and the last to leave, ensuring every detail is executed seamlessly. Our team takes charge of the setup, management of vendors, and coordination of all moving parts, leaving you free to relish every moment of your special day. With not one but two lead planners, Danielle and Sam, at the helm, along with a dedicated team of three assistants, you can trust that every aspect of your event is managed with the utmost care and precision.
