Behind The Scenes

with Sapphire Events

What Celebration Means to Us

To us, the celebration of life is not some trivial thing. We take the responsibility of creating experiences celebrating life’s greatest moments very seriously. The art of crafting an experiential celebration involves appealing to all five senses: tactile, flavor, aroma, audio, and visual. In the time and place where all five of these senses converge lies the ultimate achievement of the interwoven story of our clients, narrating the journey where their lives intersect with their loved ones in the same room, in the same moment, in one singular period of time.

What Luxury Means to Us

When it comes to luxury, we define the term differently. It is not a price point or a couture label. Luxury, to us, is the gift of time. Our process is sharply focused on efficiency and time management as the primary goal, for both our clients and our creative team of vendors. Because we value your time, our process revolves around maximizing your experience in decision-making and collaborating with us in writing your narrative so that you can get back to living and spend your time faithfully and intentionally doing what you love with the ones that you love. Simply put: we are experts in our craft, and our ability to give you the gift of time is rivaled by none other.
