Wedding Design and Styling

Need design and decor help, but don't need our coordination or wedding planning services? Our Creative Direction & Day-of-Wedding Styling package is perfect for those who would like to just pay a design fee for a professionally designed event. Clients share their inspiration and allow us to take care of the details of the design concept (rentals, floral, stationery, linen, signage, cake display, etc), set up, sourcing decor, event styling, and with our styling kit we will work closely with your photographer to create elegantly styled photographs of all the details. This service and fee can also be added onto our event day management/month of coordination services. This service is already included in all full service packages. 



CME is available to provide floral for intimate events and destination weddings. We also collaborate with our favorite floral vendors for larger (60 px plus) or more elaborate wedding and event productions. 

Candice was exceptional in planning our wedding! From the beginning she made us feel comfortable and instantly made a connection with my husband and I. I would say if you are planning a wedding, especially in the Dominican Republic, Candice is the right way to go. She has so many connections there and is so knowledgeable when it comes to the vendors there. On the day of our wedding Candice and her team were so attentive to our needs and we’re always a look away. They handled everything professionally and the day was beyond anything we could have imagined! An added plus is that Candice has an amazing eye for design. Half of the time I let Candice take the reigns and make decisions for me and everything turned out beautifully. Thank you Candice for everything you’ve done for us. We can never thank you enough!! 5 stars all around!
