Hi! I am the founder, lead planner and designer for our full-service destination celebration planning and design boutique, specializing in fine destination wedding celebrations worldwide. Born and raised in the heart of the United States outside of Chicago, I had the privilege of growing up in a family that owned an event catering business, all the while especially watching my grandmother and mother create spaces and experiences for guests of all kinds, fostering my love for hospitality and celebration planning.
Planning, designing and executing a celebration can often become a stressful and tiring experience, but it is our desire to help you enjoy a meaningful process that allows you to take in each moment of this season or simply breathe a sigh of relief while we take care of the rest.
I think of the spaces we curated through my family’s local catering business, pulling together the many details and unique qualities of each client and their guests. As a young girl I could hardly contain my excitement as I watched a bride walk down the aisle, each in her intricate gown, a reflection of the woman that was and the hope of a new season before her.
I loved watching as people of all kinds gathered together for celebration, often finding camaraderie in the shared connection to the newlywed couple. Something flickered in me growing up in spaces that inspired warmth and thoughtfulness with delicate and refined detail in even the most simple of spaces.
I hope that our work not only reflects the inspiration of my own journey, but inspires you to celebrate your love story, to take pride in your unique relationship and revel in the fleeting moments of this special season. You are one of many, yet are defined by no one else. Your marriage stems beyond the celebration day, but is worth making magic for.
Chad and I were college sweethearts when we started planning our wedding, and we quickly realized how much intentionality goes into the process on a very personal level. We fell in love with meeting couples that realize this too, and find getting to know you both is one of our favorite things!
A few years down the road, and we welcome our sweet Junia Saige (or Juni for short!) into our lives. We absolutely adore sharing this business with her already, but we are also careful to intentionally take on only a few projects we can pour our time and hearts into well while being her parents!
Although on a regular basis our clients will work mostly with me, you will often find Chad working with our numbers, budgets, travel logistics, celebration prep, day of production and so much more behind the scenes.
Bring on any destination worldwide, we are absolutely in love with adventuring and exploring new places and people. There’s never a lack of inspiration! Occasionally, you may also see our little Junia on the road with us too! We value our time together and look forward to traveling, creating, and connecting with you, your guests and your vendor team.
No matter where you take us, we love to spend as much time outdoors as we can. Hikes, beach days, neighborhood walks and chats on the porch are some of our favorite pastimes! We are also quickly becoming our version of “foodies.” We love to try local places wherever we go and enjoy cooking with as much fresh food as we can get in our kitchen.
All in all, we hope you find helpful resources and insights with us that bring value into your celebration and life, wherever you are. If you can't find something you need, please let us know, and we would love to dream up how we can create this alongside you!
