EVENT PLANNING PACKAGES
Using your property for special events? We can help make your event a most memorable occasion.
Your event is important to us. Our pricing takes into consideration the style, size, location and complexity of your event. During our free initial consultation with you, we determine which of our services would best suit your needs. We are then able to prepare a proposal and price structure, based on the information you provide, catered specifically for you and the event you’ve always imagined.
Hiring an Event Planner does not have to break the bank. We also offer hourly consulting to help you continue to help personalize your occasion. If you’re working on a budget, we can help you save money by recommending preferred vendors and helping you stick to your budget. A few hours of key consultation might save you thousands!
