Starshine offers premium childcare during wedding festivities, brightening them for kids and their families. Kids play games, dress up, make crafts, go on treasure hunts, perform magic tricks, listen to stories, sing songs, and when needed are tucked into bed so adults can fully enjoy the wedding experience. Starshine will create a custom experience based on your needs.
