Our ministry is based on the belief that our constituents' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of the services we provide are for our established families or corporate groups, and from "word of mouth" referrals. We are a proud inductee into The Knot Hall of Fame and consecutive recipient of the Wedding Wire "Couples' Choice" Awards (2012-2024) and The Knot "Best of Weddings."
