Meet the Team

Eliza and Cathy are a dynamic duo bringing professional wedding services that are truly Crafted Around You. They believe that each couple truly has a unique story that needs to be told. Whether this is shown through the invitations, event setup, or photos, that is up to you.

Speaking of stories, here is theirs:

Meet: Eliza

Co-Owner

Eliza has an amazing eye for detail and loves to stay busy, so she began planning events, doing photography, and making people's special moments come to life.

Later she combined her love for people with photography and the business took off. Eliza got her Masters and Bachelors at The College at Brockport and has planned a number of large events of all different sizes for the College and others.

She loves to connect with new people and help craft their perfect day. Bayley believes that a positive attitude and creative spark can make all the difference. She is motivated by family, sarcasm and champagne.

So how did this come together?

Extremely naturally actually. Cathy and Eliza used to work together at the same company and they decided to shoot some weddings together that they individually had booked. As they were able to seamlessly work together the joke became "ok when are we gonna start a business together?" This was then followed by one of our brides texting Cathy the day after her wedding day:

Cathy sent this to Eliza and joked, "First testimonial?"
Well, jokes became ideas, ideas became plans, and here we are today.
