About us, in a nutshell
We have planned and coordinated more than 60 weddings over the last five years. From planning and coordinating weddings at hotels and country clubs to intimate private estate weddings on the barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, we’ve planned them all. Occasionally we are called upon to plan weddings at our clients’ homes or at the home of one of their family members. Each situation brings its own unique challenges. Planning a wedding at the Bali Hi Estate on Captiva Island is completely different from planning a wedding at the Naples Beach Hotel and there is absolutely no substitute for experience.
Husband and Wife Wedding Planning Team
We are the only husband and wife wedding and event planning team throughout Southwest Florida. Our diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences complement each other very nicely. Brian and Kara are a solid team, making them uniquely qualified to help you with your special day.
Kara is naturally creative and organized with a diverse background. Much of her raw talent stems from her years working as an educator for elementary students on the autism spectrum. After her wedding more than six years ago, Kara felt a calling and found her true passion. She loves helping clients plan the most memorable events for themselves or their loved ones. Passion and creativity alone were not enough, however. Kara sought formal certification from The Bridal Society and participates in continuing education on a regular basis.
Brian, who is also certified from The Bridal Society, served in the United States Navy during Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. He deployed twice in support of combat operations on the USS Harry S. Truman. Brian attributes much of his discipline, focus, and drive to be the best, to his experience throughout those challenging years. After honorable separation, Brian enrolled in college and completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Small Business Management with a concentration in Entrepreneurship.
When they’re not planning weddings, Brian and Kara enjoy taking trips with their fuzzy kids Max and Ozzie out on their boat to remote beaches. Kara likes shelling and relaxing on the beach while Brian can’t wait to get some lines in the water.
