The Whole Adventure

LOVESMITH&CO will handle all of the necessary planning elements of your special day. I will work with you and your budget to implement a theme, secure the appropriate venue and the necessary vendors (using our vendor contacts and relationships to receive discounts you might not otherwise get), and work through all of the large and small details with you. In addition, I will attend, oversee, and direct the wedding, handle your vendors, keep everything on time, and make sure you have a memorable and enjoyable experience. With this package we guide you through the entire planning process, making it stress-free and, more importantly, fun!
