I got married early in December in the Bg Sur area and couldn't be more validated in our decision to hire Axe & Wedge for the aesthetics and floral for our wedding. She checked all the boxes in what we were looking for in a event designer. Punctual and prepared. Helpful and absolutely charming. Floral arrangements exceeded what we had in our imaginations for our dream wedding. And the cost was nothing short of inadequate compared to the result of their hard work. To sum it up, it was perfect. Nuff said.

I played the ceremony for my friend's wedding, and Kara and Matt were absolutely incredible in keeping me informed of the wedding process, keeping my equipment dry when the weather was very unpredictable, and even bringing audio equipment and EQ'ing it so the piano sounded as best as it could! They are definitely both talented at a multitude of different aspects (design to handyman work to live sound expertise), which is such a bonus when it comes to something as complex as weddings. I watched them set everything up with as much care as is possible, and stay on top of everything the entire night. As an observer of Kara and Matt, they definitely seem like they are worth every penny, and much more.
