capturing the moments that matter

CEO, Luxury Event Designer, Lead Planner, and Creative Director Celebrating life moments, has always been a part of who I am.” Essence Pugh, CEO, Luxury Event Designer, and Creative Director. 

Daris and Essence are both South Carolina natives. They live in Upstate, SC with their three amazing children. Essence has always been the “go to” for events, she started with small events, family functions, dinners, family vacations – you name it, she was the one! In 2009 she had the opportunity to plan one of the best events, her and Daris’s wedding.  Through the process Essence learned that she had acquired skill sets in corporate America that were transferable to make events outstanding. She and Daris married in May 2010 and enjoyed every moment of the wedding due to the proper planning. Soon after the wedding, Essence had many people making comments like “That was the best wedding I have ever been too!”, “I can’t believe everything started on time”, “WOW, you were able to have fun and you planned and decorated it”! She soon realized that everyone wasn’t experiencing the same for such a special day. This is what birth her passion for planning and decorating weddings, life, and corporate events. Daris and Essence, believe that it is critical that everyone has the same opportunity to celebrate life and create lasting memories without the stress.
