Whether it’s how you met your significant other, how you started your business, or what your space stands for - we live for finding beauty in every moment, memory and achievement. We use those as the foundation for all the things we create. Your story is a unique and intimate milestone in your journey and we work hard to make sure your narrative is told through our visual design.

So often we see businesses struggle to make the connection with their ideal client because they lack the confidence in knowing how to take their own personal story and implement it into their brand story. This is my sweet spot - defining the strategy!

We believe that true creativity and design begin with a story

Storytelling has been historically one of the best ways to convey a message or an emotion. It has a way of drawing you in and serving as inspiration. Some of my most memorable projects were not just about how beautiful they were but how intentional to the client they were.

Projects can span the gamut - from content creation, brand and product launches to retreat planning and even client gifting. It's all an experience. The fun part is being able to create something that is specific to you, intentionally created to to tell your unique story. Every project is designed with detail, grace and beauty.

Every project is designed with detail, grace, and beauty.

creativity is an individual journey

“Every event, every business, every person has a story!” Our stories are the pieces that make us who we are. My job as a creative director is to take these stories and piece them together to create a brand or project that is full of emotion, intentional with every detail, and more importantly an end result that inspires the next. Who wouldn’t want their work to inspire others? Here’s to getting started!

When Things Don’t Go as Planned…

Let’s talk about the relationship between planned events and the COVID pandemic… I’m ready to break up and kiss COVID goodbye. How did you feel when you looked at your calendar and had to readjust… everything? I don’t think anything could have prepared us for the changes we would face in our personal or professional […]

Crystal has the innate ability to take your thoughts and turn them into something tangible and beautiful.  She is inquisitive, intentional and thorough in her process and execution. Crystal is passionate about what she does and she serves her clients with grace and compassion. 

I am fortunate to be able to work alongside Crystal in a number of projects. I am always blown away by her creativity and attention to detail. Planning a workshop with her was a blessing and I'm thankful for her knowledge and generosity. 

"She values you in the stage you are in and gives the nudge to help you move forward."

I don’t know where to start. Crystal, was absolutely amazing. My dream wedding wouldn’t have happened without her. She is professional, energetic, and willing to go above and beyond to make things happen. She was always available to work through any of my wedding questions as well as provide great advice. 

I would have lost the day of my wedding without Crystal as my coordinator. The morning, ceremony and reception were beautiful, perfect and absolutely stress free, thanks to Crystal. Thank you for making my wedding a day that I will never forget.

Crystal is patient, relatability, knowledgeable, compassionate, efficient, talented, professional, and continuously strives for excellences. But the process of learning was my favorite part. She has taught be so much about branding, creative direction, social media concepts, and marketing.

answering your


I like to tell my unique story. How do you make sure my project/event doesn’t look like theirs? 

Ahh yes, the power of storytelling. No two people have the same story and this rings true even for business. Which is why when we meet, we have a whole meeting dedicated to learning about you personally and understanding the values behind the brand, project or event! 

Question 1

I'm lost and not sure where to start. What services do you offer that will help my event or project stand out?

Our agency focuses on design that produces an experience! Some of the services we specialize in are content and brand strategy, photoshoot styling, event and gift curation. But we don’t shy away from a new challenge or an out of the box idea. 

Question 2

I love to create an experience and I heard you do gift boxes, can you tell me how the process works? 

Tell me who you want to give, the story behind it, and your budget! We take it from there with curation, sourcing and shipping. They will be in for an experience. 

Question 3

There are a slew of people saying they do Creative Direction...why should we work together?

I’ll be the first to say it, our process is not for everyone and that’s ok! We really want to dive deep into where your business currently is and where you want to take it. And that’s how we set goals for you and your biz! So if you want a quick fix, this isn’t the place! But I am 100% here to inspire and also motivate you - so let’s get to work!
