the platinum package

The Full planning package is our most requested service among AKB couples and offers complete comprehensive planning and design services. This is perfect for the busy bride and groom desiring to host an impeccably designed wedding day that really “wows” their guests. From the overall planning, design, production and execution to guest hospitality, this package builds your wedding day dream from the ground up. We will form your wedding dream team, manage each vendor during the planning process, attend meetings with you or on your behalf (a lot of our couples are out of town and this is especially helpful to them), create a realistic budget for the scope of your wedding, customize design plans and floor plans, build time lines and execute the entire wedding day so you can enjoy and live in every single moment.

your investment:

Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience you will cherish forever and we want to make this celebration absolutely remarkable for you and one you will remember for the rest of your life. Since most of our weddings are full planning services, we only take a limited number of weddings per year in order to serve our clients most efficiently and give each couple the time and attention they deserve.

In general, most of our weddings we produce have an overall budget of $50,000 for approximately 125 guests. Every wedding is unique and customized to each engaged couple. Planning services will vary depending on the scope, design plan and the specific needs of each client. You are invited to a complimentary initial consultation to discuss your visions and review the services offered to customize a planning package that is the exact perfect fit for you!
