We are proud members of the Greater Philadelphia chapter of ISES (International Special Events Society); while our focus is exclusively on weddings, we still find that we learn a lot from our colleagues who plan all kinds of other events.

This is especially helpful as brides and grooms want to incorporate interactive ideas from corporate or sporting events they may have seen, or even just some of the theatricality of some other events…

Every year the Philadelphia chapter of ISES hosts The Liberty Awards – recognizing the best in local special events, everything from tenting to production, photography and videography to cuisine to corporate and nonprofit events to of course weddings.

Blind submissions are sent off to another ISES chapter to be judged on creativity, production and execution of the client’s vision…

We are THRILLED to announce that we were selected as the 2011 Liberty Award winner for Best Wedding for our submission of “Allison and Andrew’s Wedding"


We loved working with Allison and Andrew and the day could not have been more beautiful and reflective of them… while we are happy to take home the award, every wedding takes a team; and we would be remiss if we did not recognize the team of professionals who brought this amazing wedding to life…
