About Us

Hi! We are sisters, Laura Gawne and Susan Bain.

We built this site for several reasons. First, out of our love for doing our own weddings and second, out of our love for all things beautiful.

Our combined experience in catering, business ownership, event planning and community leadership made this wedding website a natural progression for us.

Not coming from privilege has never stopped us from having or creating beautiful things (especially weddings).

As they say, necessity is the mother of invention!

Doing our own weddings was a lot of fun and very rewarding. At one of our weddings, the restaurant even wanted to hire us because they were so impressed with the beautiful work we had done.

Over the years we have helped so many brides save money and realize their dream weddings. We know we can help you too.

We share our personal experiences here and hope they spark some ideas for your big day.
