WHAT IS AN EVENT DESIGNER?
Event designers are focused on creating stunning visual displays at your wedding or social event.
We will likely only know you, your fiancé, and your closest family members who may have influenced your design decisions.
Our pros will personally source the best linens, flowers, and details (think: escort cards, table numbers, signage, cake toppers, etc) for your wedding in order to bring your design to life. Sometimes that means creating the details by hand! From your event colors to your theme, designers also create a cohesive brand for your soiree.
Our prime purpose is to transform your space. While many stylists will create contracts that allow them to collaborate with your photographer to style your event details for photos later in the day, most designers will leave once setup is complete and will return at the end of the night to pick up their materials. Our designers are not event planners.
Because we creating a personal brand for your wedding day or special event, the option to work with us for the month leading up to your event likely won’t exist. And it shouldn’t! Plan to work with our design team for at least 6 months to 1 year at least.

Growing up, crafting and decorating has always been a desirable passion. Amira enjoys bringing the beauty out in things, she has a style of simplicity but chic and cute. There is something about neutral and soft colors that catches her eye. Amira's all time favorite color is lavender.
In her free time, if she is not spending time with her family she is spending hours in hobby lobby or navigating Pinterest looking for ideas to make wreaths or floral arrangements for her home.
