“Your Wedding Day is a once-in-a-lifetime event, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box. Some of the most intimate and personal weddings we’ve seen have had the smallest budgets.
Thoughtful, personalized details are priceless expressions of who you are, and “traditional” does not have to mean a cookie-cutter wedding. (In lieu of cake, we actually sliced a “wedding pizza” with heart-shaped pepperonis at our own wedding reception!)
We value your individuality, creativity, and above all else, your desire to have a wedding as unique as you are.” – Sue & Matt Artz
