How We Work

 
Process

It is very important to us that the planning process be as enjoyable as the event itself. We start with the genesis of the event, account for your personal DNA or company culture followed by the site, time of year and design around it. We apply our five-senses approach from concept thru completion to ensure that everything you touch, taste, smell, see and hear resonates with your guests and contributes to an experience that is tastefully executed with the right amount of sophistication, fun, interactivity and messaging. The message that we aim to convey should resonate clearly with your guests in a fitting and sophisticated manner so as to subtly create a memorable and lasting impression. By acting as the composer and conductor we are able to orchestrate a production that ensures maximum impact and harmony across all creative partners.


Creative Partners

CCC has developed a network of the best and most suitable creative partners for all event types. While we value and nurture relationships with our existing partners and seek to consistently help them perform even better, we also continue to expand our relationships with new partners across a number of services. We take the guesswork and uncertainty out of working with unknown partners by carefully vetting each one to ensure the quality of their service and /or product and that their commitment to our event is consistent with our standards.

If you have an existing relationship with a service provider you would like us to work with we will, of course, work with them as well.


Budgeting

We are often asked how much will my event cost? The short answer is, as little, or as much as your budget allows. If you have not set a budget we can help you build one around the particulars of your event and your expressed wishes.

The overall cost is entirely dependent on the selections we make for your event. As you probably already know when planning an event or series of events there are many details to cover and choices to be made. We help select and guide you to decisions in each of these areas using your budget as a framework.

Our services are provided for a 20% management fee on the overall cost of the event in addition to administrative expenses and day-of production expenses. A minimum charge does apply depending on your guest count. Our fee includes the services of a Producer, Designer and, if warranted, an Associate Producer. The overall cost, on a per guest basis, can vary greatly depending on your guest count, and of course, your specific selections. Please contact us directly to discuss additional details or submit an inquiry here.
