We LOVE love! We are here to embrace love, showcase love, and empower love! 



The main reason why we do this is because WE. LOVE. PEOPLE. Relationships are at the heart of the business, no matter if they are with our clients, our “friendors” or within our own team. We crave meaningful relationships and are simply passionate about people.

Relationships first and foremost


There is no ‘I’ in TEAMWORK. There is no ‘I’ in SUCCESS. Planning, coordinating, and executing an event takes a village; it is not, and will never be, a one person job. For this reason, we will be humble, appreciative, and thankful for our teammates, “friendors” and clients and always always always, BE KIND.

Be humble and kind


"We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less" -Diogenes. The only way to create, your vision is to get to know you. It all starts with a conversation. We dedicate time understanding your story as it is unique to you.

Listen and learn


Have you ever peed your pants from laughing too hard? (#MomProblem) Do you ever laugh out loud in the store from a funny meme? Have your abs ever been sore from laughing too much? YES? US TOO! Life is way too short, and sometimes hard, to not laugh and have fun at every opportunity!

Have fun, laugh often and laugh out loud


No idea is too nerdy, quirky or unusual. We want to know what makes you who you are, and what you want your dream event or your dream wedding to be. Harry Potter fans? Dreaming of an all-red wedding? Want balloons from top to bottom? Whatever it is, we can make it all happen.

Encourage creativity


YOU. YES, YOU. Be you, be honest, be loyal, and speak your truth. We thrive on honesty and pride ourselves on operating with full transparency in our work, in our client relationships with and with our vendors.

Unapologetically authentic


No matter how big or small the gesture is, we believe that in order to receive, you need to start by giving. There are a thousand ways to give back from volunteering at a local shelter, helping cook thanksgiving meals for the families in need, shopping at your local stores or even donating clothes.

Support your community & give back


Everyone’s balance is different, but without balance, everything crumbles. At the Main Event, we value time. We work efficiently and productively to make your dreams come true. In order to maintain that standard, we also value our personal time as it allows us to recharge and give you our best EVERY day.
