We can’t say enough about the weddings these two besties create for their brides and grooms. For over ten years Brown alums Mayra Castillo and Xochitl Gonzalez have been designing and planning weddings and events for couples across the tri-state area and around the world. The creative team now includes a total of four planners/designers.

Inspired by their clients’ personal styles and interests, AaB Creates develops a 360-degree design concept that includes the décor, the menu, and more. A diverse group, that includes interior and restaurant design and art, inspires their eclectic design aesthetic.

We are a full service design and planning company, and like to consider ourselves a one-stop shop for our busy clients.—Xochitl Gonzalez

Fun loving couples flock to these Brooklynites to translate their taste and style into a wedding. Gonzalez and Castillo offer full service design and planning, and will handle every element of the planning process from engagement party to post-wedding brunch. While they have plenty of experience planning and designing weddings in Manhattan ballrooms and tropical beaches, their specialty is producing wedding weekends in unexpected venues, such as a private estate, historic landmark, or an old summer camp, filled with details that help tell the couple’s story.

Full-service planning only starts at $17,000, add Design Service for an additional $5,000 to $10,000.
