Lots of people ask if we’re sad now that the wedding is over. No. We don’t miss the planning or the anticipation. What we miss — Denise.

I’d actually been in the wedding party at a wedding Denise coordinated, and I remember thinking my friend, the bride, was particularly chill on the day. So, when it came time to look for a coordinator, my friend shared Denise’s info.

Working with Denise was the single best decision we made.

She never made us feel like what we wanted was out of reach. Though technically Denise was our “Day of” Coordinator, she began working with us a couple of months before our wedding.

A month out, she was in touch nearly every day making sure we left no stone unturned, no vendor un-contacted, no wedding essential left behind.

On top of being incredibly organized, trying to keep us on point budget-wise, having great taste for decor, and putting out our little pre-wedding fires… Denise became a trusted friend. She felt like a real part of our team.

Furthermore, Denise was always bright, cheerful, and funny! We loved working with her. She just gets it. She gets that you’re worried about 100s of people, and spending so much money, and wanting everything to be just right — I think she was born to help couples through their weddings. She’s so good at it, it just seems like her calling.

Finally, the wedding day — Denise was a rockstar! By the time we arrived at our venue, it looked better than what we’d been imagining. She never stopped working and she never stopped smiling. She took care of us all night — checking in, making sure we got a moment alone together and making sure we got to eat, drink, dance.

We really had a perfect day and we credit Denise 100%. It’s been almost a month since we tied the knot and we just keep hearing about how lovely the day was from our friends and family. Whenever anyone compliments us on our music, or decor, the flow of the night and the overall vibe of our wedding — we credit Denise.

She’s a rare find. Again, hiring Denise will be the best decision you make and no matter what she charges you, you’ll want to pay her triple. She just goes so far above and beyond.

In fact, we’re thinking of planning another wedding just so we can hang with her again.

From start to finish Denise provided top notch service. From the start she guided us through detailed worksheets to make sure we were on the same page for our big day. Then she followed up with questions and suggestions that were incredibly helpful and made the wedding even better. She is the most detailed person and caught things I didn’t, which was super helpful!

There was not one minute during the entire process that I was worried about anything. Everything ended up in the right place and went according to the plan thanks to Denise’s coordination.  She is the most reliable, competent and organized coordinator.

She’s exceptional to work with and a dream coordinator. I’m so lucky she was there on my special day!

My husband and I got married this past June at the Clubhouse at Anaheim Hills. Denise was our day of coordinator and we loved her! Denise has a calming and organized feel to her. She took care of all the details which allowed my husband and I to fully be present on our wedding day. She directed us to transition and do all the activities we had timelined together prior to the day of. Everything ran smoothly just as we had discussed. I couldn’t have imagined our day without Denise! I must have told this story about a 100 times by now but I will never forget how Denise brought a tray of appetizers to the area where my husband and I were taking our pictures and offered them to us as we were taking our family pictures. If it wasn’t for her we wouldn’t have been able to experience that portion of the wedding. Also, it was pretty amazing of her to think to do that as I had not eaten the whole day due to all the festivities! Hands down I would pick Denise again for our wedding coordination and would love to have her be a part of any other party we throw in the future!! Thank you Denise!!!

Denise was awesome! Easy to talk to, answers emails timely, and was literally the best decision I made hiring her as my day of coordinator. Initially, I thought I could do everything myself but I realized how important it is to have Denise there to make sure everyone was in the right places, setting up, following the timeline, etc. She made the process a lot easier and I even vented to her a few times haha.

She starts off with these questionnaires regarding the wedding plans but breaks it down so it’s not so overwhelming. These were very helpful because there were questions/items on there that I did not even think of. She’s organized and created a timeline for the wedding day from start (getting ready) to finish.
She was there for the rehearsal and was so patient and kind to my family. For the wedding day, she set up all of my decor. She set up the guest tables, sweetheart table, cake table, candy bar, guestbook table, placecard table, ceremony site, entrance table.. She finished ALL of this on time and even asked my approval of everything before the guests saw it. It looked even more beautiful than how I envisioned it would be. The wedding went by smoothly and many family members approached me on how great our coordinator is. Soooo grateful for Denise, my new husband and I are forever thankful! We definitely recommend her 🙂

Denise Holt is outstanding and I couldn’t have pictured my dream wedding coming to life without her! Although I hired Denise as a day-of wedding coordinator, she went above and beyond her duties to help me when I was stressing out 6 weeks prior to the wedding. She responded to all of my emails in a timely manner and gave great advice in terms of guest count and decor. Not only was Denise creative and professional, she really brought my vision to life and the reality was even better than I could have imagined! From the set-up of the ceremony and reception to the little details, Denise really understood the concept of how I wanted things set up and tweaked things to improve the look and feel of the ceremony and reception areas. She was also very organized, which paid off after filling out numerous forms (who knew details would be so important?) and my wedding day went smoothly. Denise is just overall a wonderful person, easy to work with, patient and kind! I highly recommend her wedding coordination services! Thank you for helping in making my wedding day the best day ever, Denise! You are amazing!

I just had my wedding last Saturday May 24th 2014 and Denise was our day of coordinator. All I can say is WOW!! This woman is amazing!!! She is super friendly, professional, organized, sweet and on top of everything! My wedding would not have been as perfect without her. She was calm, cool and collected throughout the entire day. She made sure that everything was perfect and right on schedule. Apparently the tables and chairs were late and there were a few other major issues but I had no idea about any of them until my family told me the next day because she handled every little detail and didn’t put an ounce of stress on me. I can not say enough amazing things about Denise. She is priceless and amazing and you would be crazy not to hire her!! I promise you that she will make your wedding day the most amazing ever and she will do everything in her power to make it the most magical day of your life!! From the moment you meet her you will just know that she is the coordinator of your dreams!! So call her today!!

Denise is the BEST wedding coordinator, and I genuinely will be recommending her to all my friends that are planning weddings. From beginning to end she was an absolute joy to work with. She is phenomenal at what she does, and I wouldn’t trust our special day with anyone else. She was so organized, ready to serve, and made the day go off without one thing going wrong, and if something did go wrong my husband and I had no clue because everything was perfect to us. The overall wedding experience was so enjoyable, and I personally believe we have Denise to thank for that. Stop searching for coordinators, and book her.

Denise was absolutely a pleasure to work with! I DJ several weddings a year and I know a great coordinator when see one. Denise was friendly, organized, and kept great communication with all the vendors and staff. There was a coordinated helicopter landing for the bride and grooms grand entrance at Hanger 21, without Denise along my side would have not went as planned. Thank you Denise for your hard work to make sure your events go flawlessly!

Phenomenal!  I’m delighted with the help I received from Denise every step of the way in planning our son’s Bar Mitzvah.  From the day we met Denise about a year before the big event and through the date of the event, she was super helpful with suggestions and creative ideas, with bouncing back my various ideas in helping us narrow down choices and make decisions, helping to negotiate better deals than we could have done on our own with the vendors.  She kept me on schedule and on track with the timeline so that we had time to plan everything and consider all the different possibilities.  She was available to visit the vendors with me to make the necessary decisions and followed up with all of them by phone or email to finalize the contracts.  On the day of the event she was there to help deal with everything that would need attending to so I could simply focus on enjoying the event.  Then entire process was seamless and professional and a joy to plan, really.  I WILL use her services again for my other son and have recommended her to all that need this type of service!

Absolutely Awesome!!   These are the best words to describe our wedding planner, Denise Holt.  She was incredibly helpful in so many ways that it is hard to imagine planning the wedding without her.  Her professionalism was outstanding!  She was always on task and organized in the details and timeline of everything.  From giving us reminders to keep things moving, to knowing when to let us relax, she has a good sense of pace and a sweet personality that makes you want to get things done.   She has a wealth of experience and advice for first-timers, such as knowing good or bad contracts, and a good list of quality vendors that love to work with her.  She was highly praised by all the vendors we hired through her; all of them appreciating her organization and ease of communicating, and all the vendors did an amazing job.  Another important trait is that she doesn’t try to push her own point of view in the planning process.  She truly wants to help you create the wedding that YOU want.  She will give practical advice on logistics and whatever else comes up, but she will give you the freedom to make your day special.  We both feel that a lot of what made our big day special was that the level of stress was so low that we could just enjoy the day, and that comes from having good planning leading up to the day.  Denise gave us that, and we will forever be grateful.  Thank you!

Working with Denise was affirming, fun and such a pleasure!  She understood the “vibe” of our event and helped to implement it in ways we otherwise wouldn’t have thought to.  She deals with everyone involved such as staff and contractors with grace, aplomb and a cheerful attitude.  You feel that she “has your back” and won’t let any detail get by her unnoticed!  I highly recommend working with Denise for whatever event you have in mind — she is an expert at what she does and just a delight to work with!

I can honestly say that without Denise, I would have been clueless in plannig my wedding.  I was never a girl who thought about getting married her whole life, and I never paid attention to all of the details at weddings.  In my mind, I needed a venue, photographer, DJ, cake and a dress.  Man, was I WRONG!  There are so many things to think about, and Denise helped me with each and every one of them.  She also made sure that everything was done on time.  The vendors that she recommended were alwas SPOT on, and within my budget.  I have had so many people tell me that our wedding was the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and I owe that all to Denise.  OH, did I mention that she saved me THOUSANDS on my venue?  She did :o)  She’s really great at negotiating :o)

I’ve already recommended Denise to every newly engaged bride that I’ve come across since my wedding.  Even on my honeymoon, I met a newly engaged couple, and based on our experience wth Denise (and the beautiful pictures), they called her the next day.  It’s easy to convince people that someone does a great job when you believe in them.

Denise is so fun and easy to work with.  I just cannot say enough great things about her.  From picking a venue, to cutting my cake, Denise was by my side every step of the way and made sure that my husband and I had the best night of our lives.

Professional, smart, friendly, assertive, creative… these are just a few words to describe the endless talents of Denise.

Denise was my wedding coordinator for my wedding on 10/25/14 and I can’t gush enough about how awesome she was! We worked together in the weeks before my wedding to make sure that I had covered all my bases with my vendors. She was supportive, calm, informative, and really just a great person who cares about her clients.

She introduced herself to our families at our rehearsal and everyone just had the best things to say about her, that she was professional but warm and welcoming and helped everyone feel confident in what their role was on our special day.

She was able to help set up at our venue and I walked in to find everything was perfect. She was just amazing and I can’t recommend her enough.

If you’re apprehensive about getting a coordinator, don’t be. Denise is totally worth it! She has different packages and pricing options and no matter which one you choose, you’ll have an amazing experience with a professional who will help make your day and event perfect.

We had a wedding on August 23, 2014 and our venue referred us to Denise H.
When we first met Denise she was very organized, friendly and easy to work with.
We told Denise that we wanted and elegant event and voiced our concerns as we prepare to have this big wedding in the next 3 months.  At first we did not know any vendors but Denise guided us in the right direction and she connected us with vendors that were a perfect fit for us.
Denise was always one step ahead, always reminding us to complete certain tasks along the way.  Denise would send us reminder emails, she would call, and make sure we were right on schedule.  We planned a big wedding in less than 3 months so you can only imagine how demanding our schedule was.
Things got a bit more stressful as we got closer to our big wedding day, but
Denise was there to keep things running smooth, even the day of the event all we had to do was enjoy because we knew Denise was on our side taking care of everything.
Not having a wedding planner is like having no navigation or maps when you’re lost.  I give Events by Denise 5  stars for delivering an elegant and well-coordinated event.  Thank you Denise,  you’re awesome!

Denise was the most incredible, genuine, organized, poised & professional wedding coordinator a bride could ever ask for (note this is being written by Dustin’s wife but he agrees with everything 100%+).  I felt it was important to write a review for her because a coordinator can significantly impact your wedding day & planning process so it’s critical you hire someone you really trust AND will do amazing work!!

Denise made everything run smooth – making sure every little detail was taken care of & that every vendor was on point. She kept everyone in the wedding party updated on flow so all were aware of timelines & next steps.

She is such a pro and was so attentive to us, our guests, venue,
vendors & wedding party – we were so lucky to have her!

Without her, our wedding wouldn’t have been the same. She made such a significant impact & helped make our wedding the most memorable, fun & special day ever! HIGHLY recommend hiring Denise for your wedding!!

Denise coordinated our wedding in 2011 and did a fabulous job. Her amazing organizational skills saved my life, as she had timelines, informational sheets and lists of contacts available at a moment’s notice that really helped me stay on target with many wedding details that most people wouldn’t think of. The day of my wedding she was phenomenal. I (nor my mom) didn’t have to think of or remember anything that day and she took care of everything. That is exactly the way a wedding should go- the bride should be left to enjoy the whole day and have a planner take charge of all the details, getting the wedding party organized, etc. Denise is the most warm, friendly and easy-going person which made working with her that much better. I would definitely recommend her to other brides who want to enjoy every aspect of their wedding planning and wedding day.

Denise came recommended by a friend…a fancy, money-spending friend, so I was a little apprehensive about calling her.

Not only did Denise get back to me straight away (unlike the other coordinators that I looked into who took a few days to return my initial I-have-money-and-want-your-business call) but she was also very direct and didn’t give me the runaround. (I can’t stand it when I feel like I’m being manipulated in a business relationship.) She told me her fee during that first meeting and that rate didn’t change one cent, regardless of the number of times I called or emailed her with silly annoying, little questions.

We hired Denise to coordinate our wedding, from the beginning of the planning stages and to be with us through the final stretch. And it was the best money we spent out of our entire budget.

Denise guided me through the entire process; You should me thinking about this details now, or hiring that person next week, etc. She suggested  vendors for every element of our day, some that we decided to go with and others that we found on our own. And she showed the same level of professionalism to each one.

I honestly can’t imagine planning my wedding on my own. Having her with us alleviated  so much stress and concern. My (high maintenance) mother still comments on what a good investment hiring Denise was.

Denise was extremely helpful in helping me plan my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  She was instrumental in putting all the details into place.  She helped keep the cost down and thought of little details that made the Bat Mitzvah a day our family will never forget.  Everything went smoothly the day of and the decorations looked fantastic.  I would highly recommend Events by Denise!!

Denise was a tremendous help for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah.  She made sure that all of the details were in order, so our day was focused on our daughter.  She works with top-notch vendors and was always respectful of our budget.  On the day of the event, she was responsible coordinating the photographer, caterer, DJ, balloon decorator, and she set up many of the decorations herself.  You would never know she was doing so much, as she always was calm and professional.  We HIGHLY recommend Denise and would work with her again in the future!

I found Denise on Yelp while searching for a Wedding Coordinator for my Wedding April 2013.  I was very budget conscience, but I also knew that I didn’t want to handle all the details on my own.  Denise was the best addition to my wedding!!  She was affordable, and also helped me with the process every step of the way.  She was professional, kind, knowledgeable, and available.  I never had to wait more than 3 hours to any email I sent or phone call, or text message.  She was such a blessing to us, and a true help to make our dreams come true.

My Husbands brother is getting married in November and she will be doing their wedding as well.  If you are looking for an AMAZING, and affordable wedding planner, Denise is absolutely the best one for the job!!

Working with Denise was the best thing this bride could have asked for. She went above and beyond with everything she did. If I had an issue with a vendor, she quickly took it into her own hands and resolved the situation. Her dedication to making me a happy bride showed in everything she did. She was always prepared, had numerous suggestions and always had a smile on her face. She’s very determined to make your experience better than you could imagine. Above all, she was honest. If she thought something wouldn’t work quite as we had hoped, she told us. If we chose to continue on with the thought, she supported it wholeheartedly. If we chose to abandon it, she had something lined up already. She was reliable and at my every beck-and-call. I could not have asked for a better coordinator. I would recommend her hands down to anyone who has any type of a party to plan.

From the minute I met Denise in the early stages of my wedding planning, she was as calm, cool, and collected as I could have hoped she would be. She’s genuine, and not only is she a talented coordinator, but a friend in the process. She loves weddings and, even more so, she loves marriage. She never lets you lose sight of the bigger picture!
I really wanted to make sure that my mom and sisters enjoyed the wedding day, so Denise stepped right in and handled the tiniest of details to make sure the day was flawless. She recommended great vendors along the way, and her checklists were instrumental in making sure I didn’t show up at the venue without my shoes and jewels 🙂
Thank you, Denise, for everything you did! You’re a planning rockstar.

Denise did a fantastic job as the day-of coordinator for my November wedding! (Although she did WAY more work than just one day!)  She was incredibly organized and responsive. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she asked insightful questions that helped her understand my vision for the big day — I was confident that she understood exactly what I wanted and needed, and she thought of details and logistics that hadn’t even occurred to me! She responded to communication quickly, and she was extremely professional in meetings with vendors. When the wedding day arrived, I was able to relax and enjoy myself, knowing that Denise was working hard behind-the-scenes to keep everything running smoothly. She made sure everything was set up exactly as I envisioned it and that we stayed on-schedule. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about my wedding, and I know it would never have turned out so well without her help. Plus, she’s simply a joy to be around! She’s warm and friendly and has a great sense of humor — it was such a pleasure to work with her!

My son had his Bar Mitzvah recently and I honestly don’t know what I would have done without Denise!!  Not only did she keep me organized from the beginning stages of planning, she told me about things I never would have thought of like the size of the dance floor and the placement of tables.  She was also very respectful of our modest budget and did an amazing job stretching every dollar.  I was also impressed with the relationships she had with so many respectable vendors.  The day of the Bar Mitzvah, Denise was instrumental in making sure everything and everyone was in its place.  We didn’t have to worry about a thing and we were completely stress free!!  We are still getting compliments on what a great party we had and how amazing all the decorations were.  If you are looking for any sort of event planning…..this is your girl!!

Where do I start?? Denise was the best part of my wedding and who really pulled everything together.

Even though I had her just for “day of coordinator”, but she started to work with me a month prior to the wedding reminding me of small things I was forgetting.

She is nice, easy to take to, responds so efficiently to questions and emails.. Also, worth mentioning, so many of my wedding guests commented on her excellent work, courtesy and professionalism from the moment they met her at the rehearsal dinner.

Hiring her is the best investment in your wedding planning!!!

Denise was my angel helper! She was supposed to only be my “day of coordinator” but that really wasn’t the case. She was more like my “month of coordinator with added surprise bonuses”. Denise went above and beyond: she was always in communication with all of my vendors, she directed me to resources I never knew existed (and she got me some fantastic deals on my best vendors), she arrived early to the wedding to help set up and stuck to our plan to a tee! I trusted her with every decision the day of and it provided me with the peace of mind every bride should have. I thoroughly was able to ENJOY my magical day because of the confidence I had in Denise. My wedding was perfect and I owe so much of that to Denise!! She has a heart of gold!

Events by Denise was recommended by a family friend and I am so thankful!  I had not used an event planner previously for my first son’s Bar Mitzvah, but just didn’t have the same time available to plan the event for my second son so I called Denise. I can’t say enough about her poise, professionalism, energy, and creativity!  I gave her some ideas and she took it from there and the final product was amazing!  I am most grateful that she delivered an event that surpassed my expectations but stayed within my budget. She is an absolute pleasure to work with!

When our wedding venue required us to get a Day of Coordinator, we were worried we would be spending money on something we could do ourselves or have a friend help with. Little did we know how much actually went in to making a wedding run smoothly! The day of our wedding flowed perfectly and exactly how we had hoped. This was entirely because of Denise.

In the weeks leading up to the wedding Denise was in constant communication with us. She emailed forms asking questions about our day, but never too many questions at once so we didn’t feel overwhelmed. The questionnaires were so detailed and really encouraged us to think about all the logistics ahead of time. Having this done early was huge for us because we didn’t have to worry about these issues the days leading up to the wedding. She also communicated with all the vendors prior to the wedding so everyone was on the same page. At the rehearsal, she loaded up her car with all of the décor and accessories and just took care of set up so we didn’t have to on the day of the wedding. She also worked with the florist to set up the décor and it looked so beautiful.

Denise truly went above and beyond to make sure our day was special. We felt connect and supported by Denise before we even got the chance to meet her in person. She would text and email us on some days just to see how we were feeling. The week before the wedding our officiant canceled on us and within 5 minutes of telling Denise this over email, she called us to let us vent and then talked us through our options. She also took pictures and video on her phone throughout the wedding and after the photographer left because she saw moments she knew we would want to remember.

We highly recommend Denise for coordination! She had a true talent and a kind heart. You will love her!

I have worked with over 100 coordinator’s and event planners. It was truly a pleasure working with Denise, she pays such attention to detail, extremely organized and goes above and beyond to ensure all vendors have what they need to provide a great event for our clients. She totally  exceeded my expectations. The best part is she was polite and courteous, time line was flawless and she communicated with before the wedding and was on top of everything during the wedding.

I will not hesitate to refer Denise to my future clients.

I am a super perfectionist and controlled every detail of my wedding until I started to get anxious about being able to execute everything on the day of.  I found Denise after speaking to numerous coordinators who just did not fit the bill and hired her within a month of our wedding.  She picked up the ball and immediately understood what was important to me and how much I cared about my wedding details and respected that.  I could not have picked anyone better to execute our reception perfectly on the day of.  She even walked over to my hotel to drop off our bouquets last minute so we could have them for our photos and she took care of every random detail that needed to be handled.  Our reception was so beautiful and everything got packed up so perfectly!  We are so thankful we found Denise to handle our very special day and make sure everything went off without a hitch!

Denise made my wedding as stress free as possible! I hired Denise as my day of coordinator because my reception venue wouldn’t allow set up until two hours before the reception which is when my ceremony started. Thinking I was only going to need day of assistance with set up, Denise went out of her way to ensure my day was flawless. Even though I was a very organized bride and took care of everything I needed to on time, Denise helped me fill in the blanks I would have never thought of. She gave me such great ideas that my creative mind just didn’t come up with. She is really talented at what she does. Even if you are in the process of thinking about maybe hiring a coordinator, do it, and hire Denise! You won’t regret it!

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to write this review. Denise coordinated our wedding in 2011 and she was the absolute BEST to work with! At first I was really skeptical about hiring a coordinator after looking into some seriously outrageous prices and little communication, but I have to say that after working with Denise I recommend that anyone on the fence about getting a coordinator definitely book with her. From the get go, she offered different pricing options, all dependent on how involved or not you wanted her to be in the actual event, what I especially liked about her compared to others was how open she was to communicating with me. Many others I had spoken to were adamant about limiting the amount of communication we had–this really bothered me, especially considering all of the money we would be paying for their services.

After speaking and meeting with Denise, my husband and I were so pleased with how down to earth, pleasant, and affordable she was–we knew that she was the one we wanted to work with. I was so thankful to have her around as she was always available to answer all of our questions. In fact, initially I thought I would need very little help from her as I could handle all of the details left for the wedding, but I ended up booking her for a longer period of time because of how helpful she was from the get go. She gave us some GREAT options when it came to rental companies that we would need to complete the vision we had for our ceremony and reception. Before the big day she consulted with us about details that hadn’t even occurred to me to consider. I’m so so so thankful for that! The day of every detail we wanted she made happen–she coordinated with the DJ, photo booth company, photographers and the location coordinators to make sure that everything happened on time and flawlessly. I didn’t have to worry about a thing (which anyone who has ever planned a wedding can appreciate);everything was taken care of. She also took care of planning, organizing, and purchasing all of the candy for our candy bar. All in all, she was a dream to work with and definitely worth every penny.

I just got married this past weekend. My wedding turned out better than I could have imagined! Denise had every detail in place, and I was so calm through the entire process!!! She worked so hard on my wedding. I got complements of how beautiful everything was all night long.  All of the venders that she found for me were professional and worked within perfection. I am a happy girl. I would tell any bride that if she plans to have a calm stress free day within a budget or not to call events by denise. Hands down the best wedding planner/event coordinator. 🙂

Denise is by far the best event coordinator we ever used. I wish we knew her when we got married! Every detail and the personal touch was second to none. If your event is important to you, you have to use Events by Denise!!

Denise was a huge help in planning our son’s Bar Mitzvah. She helped bring our vision to a beautiful reality. I enjoyed working with her and highly recommend her! Thank you, Denise!

I attended a co-workers wedding recently and was blown away by the decor. I’ve attended some all-out extravaganzas that have been so tacky – think any of Britney Spears’ weddings – that this was a breath of fresh air and brilliance. Modern, sleek, glamorous and tasteful – hard to maintain when your wedding is meant to be THE PARTY of all parties and you get free reign to do what you want for the day. This rule should not be applied to all; straight men you know who you are. People can seriously lose any sense of style and taste. Think guns in the garter, obvious pregnancy, see-thru wedding dresses *cringe* and anything that resembles My BigFat Gypsy Wedding (Google images people). Hence I hunted down the wedding planner. File these deets ladies (and gents) as Denise is like one of her creations – unique, exquisite and rare. I bounced ideas off of her and it wasn’t even my wedding. Taste is like sexiness – you can’t buy it or create it – and this girl’s is impeccable. Her website doesn’t do her justice as this wedding was gorgeous and memorable in a hugely decadent way.
