    The best experience we could have asked for!

    David, Donald, and Katie just planned our 200+ person, black tie wedding at the Boston Public Library. It’s impossible to say enough about how amazing they were! They blew us away when planning our rehearsal dinner, welcome reception, wedding, and farewell brunch in every way imaginable. They have an incredible sense of style and design, and they did an amazing job of listening to what we wanted, showing us how it would look, and figuring out how to best execute it. They helped us be realistic while achieving the look we wanted. They built on the ideas we gave them, came up with great ideas of their own, and didn’t leave a stone unturned. The wedding looked better than we ever imagined it would – our guests couldn’t stop talking about it!

    They also did an incredible job of executing the wedding and the events of the wedding weekend. Their timelines for each event were down to the minute, and they kept us on track and having fun the entire time! They helped us budget our time to focus on the most important things, and they helped us fit everything we wanted into the wedding. We knew the entire weekend that we were in good, confident hands!

    Most importantly, they’re the sweetest, most thoughtful, and most fun wedding planners we could have asked for. We had to postpone our wedding for a full year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and they were with us and supporting us every step of the way. They helped us retain our venue and the vast majority of our vendors for our new date, and they helped us keep the excitement going for the extra year we had to wait. During the actual wedding weekend, they took such good care of us and made sure we always had everything we needed and wanted. We can never thank them enough for making our wedding so special, and we can’t wait to find an excuse to plan another event with them!

    Exceptional!

    As MOB and FOB we cannot say enough about the professionalism and attention to detail shown by David, Donald and Katie in the planning of our daughters wedding. From the moment we met for our initial meeting with David the whole experience was fun. The words "no" or "it can't be done" are not in his vocabulary. While many of the reviews are for Nantucket weddings, our wedding was in Boston and the whole weekend was flawless. All the details of the weekend including managing many of the vendors was handled by the team. We as parents of the bride were able to enjoy every minute of the weekend and not be concerned that something would fall through the cracks. We are thrilled they were able to work with us in planning and recommend them highly.
