The Flower Package
Exceptional help and guidance
Our most basic package and provides tried and true event planning services for people looking for consulting and basic event detail management, including:
To help take the stress out of the wedding planning process, we provide you with your own Wedding Workbook which will help guide you through the pre-wedding process in a neat format. The Wedding Workbook helps you stay on track and guides you through all the details and logistics of your wedding, instructing you on what you need to do and when you need to do it.
Our pre-wedding consultation will assist you with navigating your wedding workbook and will help work out the little details of your beautiful Gorge wedding. We help define your vision, help you choose the right vendors by providing you with reviews and referrals and do a site walk-through of your chosen venue.
Month of Wedding
As a wedding planner in Hood River, we understand that your wedding can be a handful even when it’s organized and thoroughly planned out. That’s why in addition to pre-wedding consultation, we also meet with you again during the month of your wedding to review your workbook and ensure that everything is on track. We also verify vendor status, schedules, and contacts.
Holding a rehearsal prior to the wedding date is always a good idea. It helps the bridal party feel comfortable and prepared for the big day! To make sure your wedding in the Gorge goes off without a hitch, we coordinate the rehearsal and review the details for the wedding ceremony as well as the schedule.
The Big Day!
We want to make your special day something to remember. We will handle all of the details that often get in the way of truly enjoying yourself including set up of decorations and florals, acting as the point person for all your vendors and family. Our number one goal: to ensure that your Gorge wedding is blissful and beautiful.

JLIANNA + LUCIEN
"Our wedding was exactly how we envisioned it. Working with Cara was very pleasant. She took the ease off everything and ensured the flow of our big day was effortless. Thank you Cara for allowing us to enjoy our big day and bringing everything together just as we imagined!"
COURTNEY + JASON
"Working with Cara was delightful. Our ceremony and reception were in two different locations and she really picked up the slack and filled in the missing pieces day of. It was slightly chaotic having it in two places but Cara took care of everything and allowed the day to run smoothly for everyone. The few times I remember seeing her she was running around filling pitchers, and snack bowls, helping guests and cleaning up. If you need a one man show we definitely recommend Cara!"
