Our wedding was perfect

I was absolutely floored by the incredible service provided by Selina and Katelyn. As the company name suggests, they went above and beyond in every conceivable way to ensure our dream wedding was executed flawlessly.

Selina is incredibly detail oriented and followed up on all tasks that came from our various check ins leading up to the wedding. A month before our wedding she took over a vast majority of all dealings with the vendors. I felt incredibly at ease knowing that she was on top of everything, and provided sound advice when we felt lost or had questions. If I listed our everything she did that impressed me this would be a 20 page review.

I did not encounter Katelyn until the day of the wedding, but we were quickly impressed. From setting up wedding decorations to fixing groomsmen boutonnieres and everything in between, she went beyond our expectations to make sure the wedding party had what they needed and the venue was transformed into our vision.

Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for all the effort Selina and Katelyn put into our wedding. We had a good idea of what we wanted, but it would not have come together without their guidance and expertise. All of our guests had so much fun and we were able to relax and enjoy our wedding to the fullest with Above and Beyond running the show.
