About: Weddings & Special Events
We pull inspiration from you, our clients, to create one-of-a-kind designs for each special event. Our creative vision and direction will be carried throughout every detail including the flowers, food, venue, and even the small, unexpected surprises. We combine vintage finds, fashion fabrics, unique elements, and then combine them with modern and contemporary components for gorgeous and interesting juxtapositions.
We work with chefs to create customized menus, invent new pastry items or cocktails, and ensure that the presentation of each item is as beautiful as the setting it is in. Whether it be an elaborate dessert bar, liquid nitrogen ice cream stand or hot toddy station, we create beautiful and fun new ways to combine food and art.
Let Alchemy gently guide you through the design and decision making process of your special celebration to make the planning fun, stress free, and most importantly, representative of your individual style.
After creating the first impression with the invitation, the tone for your special affair has been set. Alchemy creates one-of-a-kind invitations and stationery that are inspired by you and translated onto rich papers and unique materials such as metals and woods, for unforgettable presentations sure to excite your guests.

Vanessa is like Wonder Woman. She assisted us for a photo-shoot for which she handled all the styling, decor, and floral. Vanessa arrived in the morning on Day 1 with an SUV full of beautiful pieces she has collected over the years and hand-selected from her warehouse after careful thought and research specifically for our project. She throws huge, heavy vases and pillars and buckets of fresh flowers onto a cart and rolls it carefully to the set… keep in mind the cart weighs 50 times more than her. Don’t let the designer clothes fool you- she is not afraid to get dirty and do whatever she needs to do to ensure the shot will be perfect. She worked hard all day for two 12-14 -hour days straight and was always one of the last to leave. Vanessa went above and beyond and has a really, really great eye. Our images turned out lovely and we could not be happier.Sent on 01/03/2014

Vanessa is amazing!!! She has made our wedding so beautiful! Because I trusted her style so much, I did not hesitate to let Vanessa and her team create a most amazing wedding for me and my husband. We were thoroughly impressed with every aspect of our wedding and happily surprised to see every element of our wedding come alive! I couldn't have done it without Vanessa and Jill. They are awesome and I am definitely going to miss working with them!!Sent on 10/29/2013

We wanted a beautiful wedding, but didn't have the skill or creativity to design it. I follow Vanessa's blog and admire her work, and it's evident she's an incredibly gifted designer. We called to see if she could plan our small, intimate wedding on short notice. It was the best call we made! Vanessa agreed to work with us and said she could plan the wedding, which was four weeks away!Sent on 05/25/2013
Vanessa is a design and detail genius. Her creative talent is unlike any I've seen before. We gave her free reign of the wedding design - she is an expert in her field, and I knew she could design a prettier wedding than I could ever dream. She absolutely delivered! Our wedding was at an estate in Scottsdale. I had no clue how we were going to pull off a wedding there, but Vanessa said to trust her. Thank goodness we did because she created the most magical, amazing, BEAUTIFUL ceremony/reception I'd ever seen. She completely transformed the space - even our guests didn't realize the entire event took place on a driveway?! Vanessa planned every detail to perfection - it looked like an event straight out of a wedding magazine!
Vanessa and her assistant Jill are also incredibly business-minded - they are just as good at the planning process as they are at the design. They were always accessible when I needed them and provided me updates as needed. They held vendors accountable and negotiated as needed. Several vendors flaked or bailed on us leading up to the wedding, and Vanessa and Jill always dealt with them and kept us shielded from the drama. They asked me to have faith that they would pull everything together, and somehow, in only 3.5 weeks, they did!
We feel so fortunate to have met and worked with Vanessa and Jill. We highly recommend Alchemy Fine Events!
Alchemy Fine Events is a flippin' wizard of design when it comes to pull together a theme or setting! We are amazed every time we see an event created by Vanessa. She just has that touch that so many people think they have...but just don't. She has great relationships with key players and makes use of trading display pieces and design features to enhance every event. Seriously talented lady!
