Bash, Please is a creative event & styling production team founded by Paige Appel & Kelly Harris. In earlier years, they independently operated BASH & Yes, Please (two different event companies) until the duo evolved into a synergistic Bash, Please partnership. They offer their clients everything from event design, creative direction, logistical management, prop building, decor sourcing (and creating), vendor curation, destination scouting, interior styling, photo shoot direction, consulting, and so much more. Full service is their middle name.
They pride themselves on forging their own path, however rocky it may be. Taking cues from the artful, the old, the new, the textured, the sophisticated, the organic, they create seamless events that showcase their clients sensibility and style with effortless ease. They often use quotes such as “beauty organizes the mind” and “engage the senses” to keep them on the course of imaginative and graceful events. They truly believe one inspiring endeavor leads to the next, as they have co-written a book published by Rizzoli titled “The New Fashioned Wedding”, founded the innovative wedding showcase event called THE CREAM and a two day workshop for wedding enthusiasts called WEDPREP.
People have called them “L.A.’s nexus of matrimonial cool” and “a trusted source for a stress-free event”. With a healthy stock of high profile clients, BP understands discretion and tact when approaching a personal event. They travel worldwide to keep the seasons of their work fresh and growing, and will take on any project near and far for the right client.
