THE AZORES & PORTUGAL
To make it easier to learn about DESTINATION AZORES & ANGELIC AFFAIRS, we've decided to present our information in a Question & Answer format.
What is ANGELIC AFFAIRS?
ANGELIC AFFAIRS: Wedding & Event Planning | Floral Design is our sister company in the US. It was officially founded in January of 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA by Kelly Teves, who is originally from New England in the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. From 1997 - 2009, Kelly had planned many traditional events while struggling to find Clients who would embrace her custom design work. When Kelly decided to start ANGELIC AFFAIRS, she chose Beverly Hills, California because it presented Clients who craved innovation and uniqueness. Her first wedding in California was published in Offbeat Bride. And suddenly many doors opened back in New England to Clients drawn to her unique design process. Many of them said, "We hired a wedding planner who doesn't get our vision and wants to make it traditional." So in 2011, Kelly decided to return to New England while still flying out to California, Pennsylvania, and all over the US. Today, ANGELIC AFFAIRS books mostly destination Clients desiring events in the Newport, RI and Boston, MA areas.
Does ANGELIC AFFAIRS only plan and design offbeat, non-traditional events?
No! At ANGELIC AFFAIRS & DESTINATION AZORES, we get to know our Clients and design around YOU and YOUR GOAL! Oftentimes, we create fusions of different themes while bringing out our Clients' personalities and stories into the flow of their event, as well as their decor. Every aspect -- from Invitations to Floral Arrangements to added decorative details -- are well thought out, and run by our Clients for final approval. Whether they desire a cohesive look, or quirky mix-matched decor or stationery, we've done it all!
Is ANGELIC AFFAIRS still in business?
Yes! ANGELIC AFFAIRS is open and run by Kelly Teves and her team in the US. Due to the short flight to the Azores from New England as well as the help of the internet, Kelly easily runs DESTINATION AZORES. She also has the aid of her assistants in the Azores for help when she's in the US.
Why was DESTINATION AZORES created, then?
DESTINATION AZORES was created as a sister company to primarily focus on events in the Azores as its own identity. We wanted to create an individual company and website that would make it easy to connect with Clients interested in planning events in the Azores.
How can you manage both companies on your own?
Both ANGELIC AFFAIRS and DESTINATION AZORES are exclusive boutique companies -- meaning that we only book 1-2 events per month to provide ALL of our Clients with the utmost attention and quality that we are known for. We live by the saying, "Quality over quantity." to uphold our reputation. Kelly will always be your main point of contact.
