Bijou, a graduate of the George Washington University, is the lead planner and designer who has been planning and coordinating events for over a decade now. Abraham is the eye behind the lens. An experienced photographer, he helps couples capture the most memorable moments of their day. Married for over a decade now, they are based in the NW suburbs of Woodstock, IL.

The couple started the business as a way to combine their creativity and organizational skills with their love for weddings.

With a paralegal degree on hand, you can trust Bijou to help you review your vendor contracts from top to bottom so you know what you're agreeing to before you sign on the dotted line.
