Meet the Lenahans

Karen met Daniel while attending Long Island University 27 years ago and have been happily married for 21 years. Their passions are music and design and they travel as much as possible in the off season to collect new ideas and refresh their creative minds. Living on the east end of Long Island in the summer and Vermont during most of the winter months gives them the opportunity to work in such beautiful, diverse places. Their love of the seasons in both places give them incredible working locations whether you are having your wedding or event on the beach, a vineyard or in the mountains. Their business is never seasonal which they love!
