Words cannot express the gratitude I have for you. Your professionalism, your expertise, your patience, your graciousness, your “calm” and reserve during difficult moments, your poise, your humor, and your services are impeccable! I am most grateful for being introduced to you, and I would love to stay in touch and get to know you “personally.” I think you’re a fantastic lady, and by all means please utilize me as a reference of any kind.
Thank you for sharing my special day, and for making it beyond memorable! Everyone had a fantastic time (including myself! ), and everyone RAVED about the location, the vendors we used (specifically the DJ!), and also about your services! I can’t think of a single thing I would have changed—EXCEPT for making the moment last all night! (People actually did NOT want to go home!! Lol!!)

Thank you so much for coordinating an amazing wedding. It was truly a deam come true. I appreciate all your help so much and hopefully you enjoyed working with me as well. I will definately keep in touch and I will use you in the future. You were wonderful to work with.
What can I say except that this young lady is the real deal! There are no words to express my gratitude for you. My birthday was amazing, everything I imagined and then some. You are amazing at what you do and I was not only honored, but blessed that you agreed to make my dream a reality. Thank you for everything.
As an event planner.... friends, family and clients are always asking me where to go, what to do, what's new? So I decided to list a few of my favorite things and favorite places to share with you. The list below offers a great combination of live music, great food and great spaces. I'm sure the list will change from time to time, but it's purpose will always be about making your life sparkle.
Cheers & Enjoy
