Company Background
Stylish Details began when a wedding photographer from Chicago met a fashion stylist from Orange County. Tricia Meteer and Sophie Mae have been friends for years, but it wasn't until Tricia photographed Sophie's wedding day that the idea Stylish Details was born. They realized that there weren't any companies currently offering the talents of an award-winning photographer and the eye of an expert fashion stylist and event planner.

Stylish Details is the very first all-inclusive wedding styling, planning, and photography concept for the modern bride and groom. Their team has grown from two to six in the last year and now provides vintage prop rentals and wedding videography.

Their team offers full, partial, and day-of wedding planning to suit each couple's unique needs. Each wedding package includes a bridal style consultation by Sophie Mae and even planning by Melanie Lee.

Stylish Details described in three words: chic, fun, and romantic.

Why wedding and event planning? What about your career makes it worthwhile each day?
We always say that we have the best jobs in the world and it's really true! We have the pleasure of being a part of the most important day in a couple's life, their wedding day. It's really rewarding to see your hard work pay off when the big day arrives and it's truly amazing when you get to see the incredible images after the wedding. There's really nothing quite like it.

If you weren't in the wedding and event industry, what would you be doing?
That's a tough one! We are all very passionate about what we do, so it's very hard to imagine doing anything else. Maybe we would be zoo keepers... because we all adore animals!

What's your favorite part/ moment of the wedding and why?
There's nothing quite like seeing the look on a groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time. It's as if time stops and in that moment, all stress and anxiety that might have occurred before the wedding just disappears. That one look makes everything worthwhile.

How would you describe the Stylish Details experience?
If we could describe Stylish Details in two words they would be "all-inclusive". Our goal is to provide our couples with everything they need to create the wedding day of their dreams. We do this by offering complete wedding styling and planning, breathtaking photography, vintage prop rentals, and videography.

Name one thing that sets Stylish Details apart from its competitors:
Stylish Details is unique because we come with a complete "wedding entourage", comprised of a wedding and prop stylist, event planner, photographer and videographer. Though all of our services can be purchased individually, we love that our couples can think of us as a one-stop shop for all their wedding needs.

What is one important piece of advice you would like to share with brides?
My biggest piece of advice for newly engaged brides is to never underestimate the importance of a wedding planner. Many venues include an "on-site coordinator", but they should never take the place of an expert planner. A great wedding planner will help you with everything you need to be stress-free on your big day, while a venue coordinator just oversees the venue itself.

Another tip is to enjoy every moment of your wedding. The day flies by so quickly, so it's important to cherish every moment!
