About: Weddings & Special Events
We pull inspiration from you, our clients, to create one-of-a-kind designs for each special event. Our creative vision and direction will be carried throughout every detail including the flowers, food, venue, and even the small, unexpected surprises. We combine vintage finds, fashion fabrics, unique elements, and then combine them with modern and contemporary components for gorgeous and interesting juxtapositions.
We work with chefs to create customized menus, invent new pastry items or cocktails, and ensure that the presentation of each item is as beautiful as the setting it is in. Whether it be an elaborate dessert bar, liquid nitrogen ice cream stand or hot toddy station, we create beautiful and fun new ways to combine food and art.
Let Alchemy gently guide you through the design and decision making process of your special celebration to make the planning fun, stress free, and most importantly, representative of your individual style.
After creating the first impression with the invitation, the tone for your special affair has been set. Alchemy creates one-of-a-kind invitations and stationery that are inspired by you and translated onto rich papers and unique materials such as metals and woods, for unforgettable presentations sure to excite your guests. We create every piece your celebration may need from the Save the Dates, Invitations, Welcome Booklets, Programs and Seating cards. Whether it be a complete suite of elements or a single card, let us add to your event with our custom designs.
