Spectacular!!! I couldn’t have wished for a better experience or a more beautiful wedding. I knew my budget, I knew what I wanted and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome. Kim is very energetic, creative, passionate and extremely organized. My guests still talk about how beautiful the wedding was. She made a lasting impression on everyone. Everything a little girl wishes for and then some!! Kim was so caring, her attention to detail was more than what I ever could have imagined. Her ideas were original and the execution was flawless. I will forever remember my wedding as one of the most beautiful settings from this day forward. From the flowers at the altar, my bouquet, bridesmaid’s bouquets, the boutonnieres, the table arrangements, the kid’s tables with their activities, the entrance to the venue, the guest book, the wedding favors, the intricate detail that lined the aisles and so much more. I can’t even begin to describe the beautiful setting that was in place. The pictures will forever capture this beautiful moment between my husband and I. Thank you Kim from the bottom of my heart, my wedding was one of the most memorable, beautiful and breath taking moments of my life. Everything thing went off without a hitch. People were where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be there. The songs played at the proper moments and the crowd was just as energetic and cheerful as my husband and I. I was able to relax because everything was taken care of. You made the venue look magnificent and brought out the beauty and elegance in everything you touched. It was gorgeous. Thank you. Kim is the woman for the job, I refer her to any and all of my friends who are planning to get married. She truly cares about you and your happiness. The BEST experience you could ever wish for.
