Weddings and Celebrations of all kinds… simple or elaborate…

 

I feel so honored to play a part in creating that “something” that will end up taking your breath away, make you smile, and fill your guests hearts and your heart with happiness.

Pretty Fêtes is a boutique design firm that specializes in smaller more intimate weddings, dinner parties and birthday celebrations. We will create magical vignettes that will draw you into the event and make you want to linger and just take it all in. We create events that will be unique to you and who you are. There is not a gathering of friends and family big or small that is ever alike. Each project is planned out meticulously, every detail carefully noted and the outcome is …well, spectacular!

I’m so blessed to get to do what I do best….create wondrous soirees!

 

 

  Design 

 

Words cannot express what an honor it is to be chosen to design your wedding . You may have dreamt of this day forever and know every detail of how your day will look and feel or maybe you just know you are deeply in love and ready to take this amazing leap. Our team is available to meticulously design every aspect of your Wedding or Event. My promise is to create an experience full of love, joy and a whole lot of fun…Let’s get started!

Offerings include~

Our process begins with a meeting to discuss your wedding/event, inspirations,dreams and wishes. 

After an onsite walk-through to talk in further depth about your wedding we will create a design proposal including visual inspiration, a color board and layout. We will hand select and manage your complete team including the florist, rentals, linens, invitation designer, lighting company, and any other design related vendors. **No two events are alike…this is your time to shine. We want to hear your love story, we want to listen to what makes your heart happy, we find great honor in designing an event that is a reflection of you…one that your family and guests will treasure always.

Florals

Oh gosh, Your flowers are what will bring your whole look together…the colors, choice of blooms and the style of your bouquet can create such a magical feeling. We begin always with your love story, how you chose your venue and the details such as number of guests, the number in your Bridal party and color scheme. I do love Pinterest…just like everyone but I Love it for inspiration not for duplication. We want your flowers to be unique to you and we achieve that through the vases we choose the linens and place settings that will be surrounding your flowers, the venue and what your overall look is saying…is it elegant and romantic, bohemian, rustic, modern and fresh? If you don’t know no worries I can help you figure that out. If you would like Pretty Fêtes to be your floral designer our fees begin at $5,000.

After an in-depth conversation, a venue walk through if possible and the exchange of ideas I will create an inspiration board for you…we may do this 2 or 3 times. Each time you are going to see things you love and things you don’t love…we will add and subtract until we have all of your favorite looks to pull inspiration from.

I would be so honored to contribute to the prettiness of your day through my floral designs.

*Myself and at least one or more assistants will be on site, setting up, distributing wedding party florals and making sure your flowers are photo ready
