Each couple has different priorities for their wedding. There are three steps to the wedding planning process: planning, design, and management. You may choose one, two or all three of the following packages to bring your wedding vision to life.

design and production

You want a wedding experience that represents you as a couple where each detail thoughtfully contributes to that atmosphere.  This service provides expert creative design, direction, and production to make your wedding experience unforgettable. We love taking who you are as a couple and pouring it into a cohesive event design.

This package includes a full event design that serves as the blueprint for all visual decisions in your wedding.  It also includes production of your design and one event manager on your wedding day to oversee the design set up. This package requires you to hire an event manager (not necessarily from A. Griffin Events) to oversee the coordination and management of vendors, schedule and guests.


wedding management

This is our answer to day-of or month-of coordination. Over the years, we found it most beneficial to our clients to give them support and assistance throughout the planning process. It also enables us to do our best work. We are available as an expert guide and resource throughout the planning process to help you craft your wedding day.

 We meet with you four times over the course of your wedding planning as you develop a comprehensive plan for your wedding day.  Around 4-6 weeks before your wedding date, we become the point of contact for all your vendors and manage your wedding details to ensure you are free to enjoy your celebration.
