WEDDINGs

Weddings aren’t stressful but with our wedding planner we didn’t feel the stress! She took charge, contacting all of our vendors and handling all of the difficult issues that came up. She dealt with the problematic vendors, coordinated all of the many timelines and checked that every detail was taken care of. This way, the day of the wedding I could relax and enjoy myself and she would be handling everything and everyone else. She was absolutely fantastic!!
