After planning my own wedding in 2001, I founded Isha Foss Design. Here I combine my love of fine furnishings and tasteful interiors, with stylish floral and event design. I have given up planning to focus more on the look of the event. But I love to work with professional planners and would be happy to recommend someone if you need that assistance. My aesthetic encompasses the TOTAL look, not just centerpieces. I like details that make sense in a setting that is just right for them. My team and I realize that the people and the feelings are paramount, but we create the backdrop that frames your joy. So celebrate! We'll do the rest from custom draping, furnishings, wedding party flowers, to backdrops and linens, we take care of every detail - in-house. We bring fresh and unique floral elements from around the globe or the farm down the road. If it elevates the event, we can bring it. If it doesn't exist, we can make it.

4. Your customer is the greatest source of information that you have.  After the event, talk with them and ask them questions, like why did you choose me?

5.  When you have a client, it’s good to have a relationship with that customer.  You need to build trust with the customer not just the planner or organizer.
