Our goal is to create atmospheres
which inspire and resonate with
the human experience.

Our approach is from the heart. We feel it is important to get
to know and understand our clients so that we may translate
their vision into an unique, unforgettable occasion.

Our intention is to create an authentic, comfortable vibe
while both inspiring and temporarily transporting your guests.

Our Philosophies

No.1

Dream Outside the Box

We are real people. We are artists and designers. We are free spirits who love to work organically. We find that being open minded and fluid with our approach brings out the best in our work as well as those around us.

No.2

Think Big

We’re about creating an overall vibe, considering how guests will actually move in and react to a space.

No.3

Bring People Together

We believe in love and acceptance and welcome clients of all races, genders, and religions.

No.4

The Sky is the Limit

We are motivated by the work we do and seeing an event come alive, and are happy to travel to achieve it.

No.5

Stay Inspired

We love our work because it's our passion, and want our clients to feel similarly. If we're not the right fit, we'll gladly make a referral to someone we feel is.

Giving Back

Just as much as we love connecting with you and your events, we love connecting with our community.

Pow Wow's owner, Melissa, and her family have been deeply impacted by cancer and have chosen to host monthly events at the Pow Wow warehouse, it’s one of the small ways we can give back to the community. Please join us for donation-based yoga at the warehouse, with proceeds benefitting an individual or family affected by cancer, or our annual Pow Wow Women’s Retreat. Please follow us on Instagram where we announce details of these events.
