SO YOU CAN DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY
don't worry, we'll take it from here.
At CME, we believe that clients should get to indulge in every second of the wedding planning process, which is why we offer full-service planning and design!
With our hands-on approach to planning, our clients can pick and choose how involved they want to be which means more time for celebrating and less time having to vet vendors, book your rentals, or put together a floorplan.
We will handle everything from venue touring & booking to placing the very last napkin while you soak in the love and laughter with family and friends on your wedding day.
