Alison and Bryan are event planners, designers, storytellers, and a husband and wife team specializing in destination weddings with style and seamlessness.

Over the past ten years, we've produced hundreds of weddings and have mastered the fine art of making a meticulously and strategically planned event feel spontaneous and effortless.

Our events? FUN! Great entertainment. Inspiring ambiance. Creative food and beverage with great presentation. Excellent service. Quality without pretentiousness. Approachable and comfortable luxury. Warmth. Good energy. Never the same thing twice. We've overheard guests describe our events as "exquisite" - which we absolutely love.

Whether it's an estate in Santa Barbara, a resort in Palm Springs, a villa in Italy, a hacienda in Mexico, a ranch in Montana, on the lake in Michigan, a hotel in LA or Big Sur, or essentially anywhere throughout the US and the world (you get the gist!), we are adept at planning and designing in a very wide range of settings and are available for destination weddings worldwide.

No matter the season or location, whether it's big, small, understated or elaborate, we can help you set the stage for an authentic guest experience and an amazing once in a lifetime celebration. Interested in learning more? We are now booking for 2019 and would love to chat.

 

They executed the most logistically difficult wedding weekend I could have asked for, working constantly to give us everything we envisioned and everything we didn’t know was possible. They created a festival in a forest for us, designing and building the entire dream world from the ground up, literally. Before A+B there were two fields and some tall pines. After A+B there was an open air minimalist church constructed out of steel, a forest walk lined with candles and designed around bespoke cocktail selections, and a reception site that lead from one magical tent to the next. The cocktail tent with its explosion of flowers, fabric escort cards, a living floral installation that reflected the custom design of our wedding invitations, and themed lighting design on the ceiling. The dinner tent with long tables, a clear tent so thin you could see the stars, custom napkins and print materials in rose gold flickering off the taper candles above mauve velvet linens, and luscious floral with pomegranates on the tables. The open air black and white dance floor which flowed into a lounge and bar area inside of a 25 foot high tee pee tent they found and brought in from Montana. The bonfire they created off the dance floor complete with adult s’mores. All of the food was prepared outside, each stage of the event was accompanied by a separate custom cocktail, and every single detail was executed to perfection. It is difficult even now to describe the level of detail, creativity, and originality in one review. Their level of professionalism surpasses any I have ever experienced. They stay calm in the most stressful of situations, and they genuinely love what they do. Their intuitive agility is second to none, moving seamlessly from conversations with my mother about place settings to budget and financial considerations with my CEO father. They are, without question, the best I have ever seen at their craft.

MELODY + ASHKAN
If you are considering working with Alison and Bryan, just do it and don’t look back! I couldn’t imagine working with a more wonderful team! They are creative and organizational geniuses (this is not an exaggeration), and absolutely delightful to work with! Alison and Bryan are INCREDIBLY talented, responsive, and professional. They helped me seamlessly plan a wedding from New York, despite my own hectic schedule and limited availability to visit the wedding venue. Alison’s taste is impeccable (beyond! — seriously, she has the best taste in the business and recommends only the most talented vendors), and she and Bryan have an astute business sense that really shines when it comes time to make difficult financial decisions during the planning process. It also doesn’t hurt that Alison and Bryan are warm, kind, funny, and all-around awesome human beings! I really adore Alison and now consider her a dear friend. Despite the fact that planning a wedding can be stressful, I smiled through most of it and was just extremely happy and grateful to have them on my side! Basically, if you want to have the wedding you envision, but fifty times better with almost none of the stress, do yourself a favor and work with Alison and Bryan.
