From helping you conceptualize your next hospitality project, activating your brand to stand out in a crowd of event goers, or planning your dream party, our commitment to elevate the event is unwavering. Our clients benefit from our global experience and world-class vendor networks. See below for a variety of services we offer.
Event Strategy, Planning & Production
From content creation to budget management and onsite production, we offer full-service experience design solutions.
Venue Site Selection
We help clients find the perfect venue - from identifying key markets, cost comparisons, side by side analysis, site visits and contract negotiations.
Comprehensive design is much more than pretty flowers, linens and mood boards. Behind every beautiful event you see are intentional decisions and thoughtful logistics.
Event Layout & Infrastructure
Let's face it - not all parts of event planning are sexy. Loading dock logistics, saturation levels of a tented area, power drops and restrooms... this is where experience matters. We work through important event infrastructure logistics, flow and consumer behavior as we diagram floor plans. We've built amazing venues from the ground up at private residences, ranches and venues across the United States. We understand the importance of having a solid plan B, C and D.
Designing the Culinary Experience
Designing the culinary experience is at the forefront of each and every event we plan. From white glove fine dining to scoping the best dive bar in a a new city, we believe in the magic of a shared meal with loved wines or glass of wine with friends new or old. Our passion for hospitality shines through each unique event: multiple day wine + food festivals, chef's dinners, wine country excursions & exclusive culinary experiences. With our network of incredible caterers, chefs, winemakers, mixologists and sommeliers, let's dream up something delicious for your next event!
Need help navigating a destination? We help streamline decisions and serve as your one-stop shop for your next event.
Offsite Excursions & Tours
From waterfall rappelling in Hawaii, to zip lining across the tree tops in Costa Rica, offsite activities are our speciality. Relaxing spa day or guided museum tour more your speed? No problem! We create custom menus for all skill & adventure levels.
Golf tournaments, paddle outs, scavenger hunts, karaoke contests, canned-food drive sculpture building contests... team building isn't one size fits all. Let's get to know your group and build from there!
Lighting & AV
Power, lighting, presentations, sound, internet access and more - your event audio-visual production can make or break your event. Our network of lighting & sound engineers, riggers and technicians are the best around!
We manage it all - from large motor coaches and black sedans to electric fleet of MOKES, bicycles and kayaks! We kick the tires to recommend the best and most creative transportation options for you. From group airfare, to transformation manifests, departure notices and onsite greeting, we help take care of your most precious cargo - your people!
Proud partners to trusted brands bringing new ideas to life. Let's chat!

Okay, and also beautifully designed tablescapes. They're our fav.
Invitation, Paper Goods & Event Branding
Letterpress, laser cut and vintage stamps or eye catching graphics that jump off a screen? Why not both?! Invitations, websites + registration should set the tone for your event from the first touch point. Your onsite look and feel should be cohesive and tell a story. We work with a incredible network of designers, printers, calligraphers, and more to bring each client experience to life.
Music & Entertainment
No matter your goal - background music during a cocktail party or a rocking dance floor into the wee hours of the night, we play matchmaker for our clients connecting them to the best talent in the business. We get to know your style, goals and budget. From household names to up & coming artists we've discovered performing on sidewalks, we love all things entertainment! Bands, DJs, stilt walkers, synchronized swimmers, face painters... sky's the limit!
Consulting & Education
Knowledge is power and sharing is caring. Have a special project or need an industry expert? We offer adhoc consulting. As an adjunct professor at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, Amber teaches in both the Experience Industry Management and Wine & Viticulture departments and we're passionate about giving back to students. Emily has mentored many up and coming planners and our greatest joy is seeing past employees rocking it in this industry, too!
Dream it. Build it. Bring it!
Sometimes the talent has feathers and sometimes the talent has paparazzi and bodyguards. We're your partner to managing your VIP guests, green rooms, security and logistics!
Stage & Set Design
