I was planning the rehearsal dinner for my son's destination wedding in Santa Fe NM. I wanted custom candy bars....with the Chicago Tribune logo on the front, and a personal message and picture on the back. I met with Denise and Alex...brought Alex a copy of the newspaper and asked if this was doable.
Alex duplicated the logo right down to the small American Flag in the corner.....Denise also suggested these amazing favors that look like matches, but were really Lifesavers....individually wrapped...also with a personal message from the bride and groom...
My guests were BLOWN the creativity and the detail ! Alex and Denise listened to my requests...and just made my ideas better !! First class work at a reasonable price !! Just perfect!

I hired Denise Murphy of Touch of Elegance as a "Day of Wedding" Planner for my daughter's Wedding. My daughter & I met with Denise months before the Wedding to discuss our needs for the Wedding Day. I found Denise to be friendly, creative, and very professional. She listened to our needs, had many creative suggestions, and assured us that we both would be able to relax and enjoy the day. We were able to relax as Denise stepped in and made the day stress free. She worked well with all of our vendors to insure each detail was covered to our expectations. She went above and beyond in the set up of food at the ceremony location, to making sure no details were missed at the Reception. I'm very happy with Denise at Touch of Elegance and the services she provided us, and will definitely recommend her services to friends and relatives. Thank you SO much Denise!

Denise met with me a few times and worked with me and my outdoor wedding. We had to move the reception inside due to cold and she warned me we might have to move the bartender inside due to wind (but we didn’t). They had everything setup, they cleaned up, they had everything covered, ready to go, worked with my other vendors. I mean there wasn't a thing that went wrong because Denise and her staff knew what they were doing. EVERYONE commented on them. Here is some of what was said: "The wait staff is great! I hardly noticed they were there but nothing was ever out of place! ""Whoever is doing all this work to set up and arrange is amazing!"" Your service people really know how to work this place! I never would have figured this all out!" (layout of tables and such)"WE loved the bartender!" I would definitely use this company again!. :)THANKS GUYS! You made my wedding day hassle free. AND THAT was the best thing you did for me.
