You’re busy and your time is valuable. Hitch Studio can save you hundreds of hours of work by recommending dependable vendors, decorating your ceremony and reception, taking it all down at the end of the evening, putting on those chair covers or picking up a special delivery, and just knowing those little details that may have taken you by surprise. Take those hours of your life back so you can share a little more love, not stress.


for free

If you don’t really have an eye for centerpiece design, that’s fine! We’ll show you options for decor and you pick what you love! The best part? It’s completely FREE. That’s right. All the décor in our collection is included for styling your wedding. We bring it all, set it all up, and take it all down at the end of the evening, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. No returning rentals or storing/selling decorations afterwards. You can just show up and shine as people compliment your beautiful wedding reception.



We go far beyond your expectations on your wedding day. We know what to do if questions arise or the unexpected happens. We’ll help guide your timeline of the day and help you with that feeling of overwhelm along the way. We’ll ask the questions you haven’t even thought to ask yet. You can take a deep breath because we just know. We’ve talked about it.
