“Thank you for your expertise in making Greg & Tisha’s wedding truly An Elegant Affair. At first I had concerns because of the complications of their plans but my concerns were unfounded. You did a remarkable job, you were right there at each event making it happen in a graceful and unhurried manner and, it seemed effortless. I was very impressed with your attention to detail and the time and effort you put into each event.
You have a great gift in what you do; your love for your work comes through in a very gracious manner. And your personality is the “frosting on the cake.”
