We had the most wonderful experience with cactus and lace. They were so professional and exceeded our expectations. Their attention to detail is exquisite and they truly make you feel so special on this very important day. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants an intimate ceremony because Amanda and Rachel went over and beyond with every aspect of our wedding and we couldn’t be more pleased. Lastly, we had the most gorgeous photos thanks to our amazing photographer Rachel.Sent on 04/23/2019

Simply put, I can tell you that from personal experience that Rachel and Lori are incredible people who go to great lengths to ensure that your big day is the best day ever. Everything, down to the smallest detail, was curated to reflect exactly what my wife and I were looking for. And do you see the pictures that they take?! The toughest decision that we have had to make throughout the entire wedding planning process is which ones we want to hang up in our home!

The ladies of Cactus & Lace are simply amazing. They made my wedding absolutely beautiful. The planning process was a breeze and super seamless. Since we weren't local, we only had a few conversations and emails; they seemed to have read my mind. Their attention to detail is reflected in their work. They listened to even the small details, mentioned in our conversations and accommodated us perfectly.Sent on 12/07/2017
