We had the most amazing time! It went so smoothly and everything was just as we had imagined! 
Dad even thanked you in his speech!

One of the BEST decisions I have made in this whole wedding planning process, hands down.  All of my guests were raving about how carefully, thoughtfully and uniquely planned my wedding was.

Your kind, consultative approach and talent for design and coordination is nothing short of phenomenal and was pivotal to the success of our day.

We didn't have to worry about anything except getting ourselves ready on the day - she really helped make sure everything went off without a hitch
