    How I cater to offbeat weddings

    Our dedication to crafting offbeat weddings springs not just from our professional expertise, but from the very core of who we are. Leading with love, our founder’s own journey—marrying at the vibrant Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas—embodies the spirit of adventure and non-traditional choices that we bring to each event. Watch our elopement journey here.


    As a proud member of the LGBTQ+ and Hispanic communities, our owner brings not only her professional passion to the table but a deeply personal understanding of the importance of inclusive celebration. This unique blend of personal identity and professional dedication ensures that every wedding we plan is a haven of diversity and inclusivity, where all love stories are celebrated, and every couple feels deeply seen and honored.


    Our contracts are thoughtfully crafted to be gender-neutral, welcoming couples of all identities and expressions. We pride ourselves on creating spaces that are not only safe but celebratory of every individual’s uniqueness.


    But our offbeat nature doesn’t stop at our professional services. Our owner’s personal quirks—a love affair with the magical world of Harry Potter, evidenced by an impressive collection of wands; a fascination with miniatures, crafting a tiny wedding venue with meticulous detail; and even a forearm tattoo penned by Marilyn Manson, capturing a lyric that resonates with her soul—these are the touches of individuality that inform our understanding and appreciation of the offbeat.


    We believe that your wedding should be a reflection of your most authentic selves, no matter how whimsical, unconventional, or unique. Our passion for the oddities in life, combined with a deep commitment to inclusivity, makes us the perfect partner for couples who dare to dream differently. Whether you’re envisioning a celebration that breaks all molds or simply one that embraces the true essence of your love story, we’re here to bring that vision to life, with every detail reflecting the wonderful oddity of who you are.
