Cities are amazing for convenience at your fingertips, epic downtown cityscapes, and opportunity around every corner. Your wedding weekend takes place in an exciting urban environment, capturing the feeling that the city is celebrating with you.
Check into your downtown hotel the first night, and discover a charcuterie board and bottle of wine waiting for you. There is an itinerary for the evening with a surprise, the only instructions are to dress nicely and meet in the lobby at 7 after you've eaten dinner. Outside, a limo is waiting to take you on a tour around the city with a stop for dessert.
The next day, you have a quick breakfast, check in with your planner, and start getting ready! Your photographer arrives to catch the end of the preparation and take you to your first look. You share a private moment with your soon-to-be-spouse, then get photos around the city. Your ceremony is quick but heartfelt, with your own music, full design, and personalized details. You say your own vows in front of an epic backdrop of the city.
Afterward, enjoy a stylish dinner with dramatic lighting, personalized menus and seating chart, and a dessert display inside of a private room at a hip restaurant. You and your guests will be treated to an upgraded menu, specialty drinks, and a private waitstaff. A photobooth, playlist, and group games keep you entertained all night. Congrats, enjoy wedded bliss.
