    Perfect and Amazing

    Alison and her crew did an amazing job of organizing our wedding on the beach in front of our condo on 62nd Street in Ocean City It was the most beautiful and fun day ever. I had the ability to watch the set up as I got ready for the wedding. You won't be disappointed so many options and little extras that made the day uniquely ours!

    True Rockstars

    Alison to the Altar was highly recommended by every venue we visited in the area, so hiring her for our big day was a no-brainer. It's so obvious she has a ton of experience planning weddings and knows what she's doing, what works best, and what to avoid. We have felt lucky to have her expert opinion as we figured out how to bring our vision to life through florals, rentals, centerpieces, etc. She's been gracious and flexible as we've navigated COVID, and though we had to push back our larger reception to 2021, her team still did our bouquets and flowers for our 'minimony' in September and we were BLOWN AWAY! The flowers were gorgeous and even prettier than what I had envisioned, and her team went above and beyond in delivering to two separate locations and dealing with the chaos of the day. Thank you Alison, Stephanie, and Brittney!!

    Alison to the Altar's reply:

    I am so happy we were able to get you down the aisle in style!
    I can't wait to see what next year brings for your reception. It was our pleasure to work with you and I look forward to working with you on that. Stay safe.
