Barbara, Bride

I wanted you to know that you did a fantastic job with our wedding. It couldn’t have been more perfect! Everyone had a fabulous time and couldn’t say enough about how beautiful it all turned out and how smooth and seamless the night went. Thank you for making our wedding even more than we could have ever imagined/dreamed it to be! I really loved working with you. You were patient and really knew how to take my initial general idea and turn it into a very detailed rendition of what I could have ever asked for.

The Wedding of Barb and Ricardo took place at the William Aiken House- it was a much anticipated and wonderful evening.

Barb and Ricardo had originally planned their wedding for a Friday in April- and due to an illness

in the family- they had to postpone…so when their day finally came in June everyone was excited and happy.
