    Candy is a lifesaver!

    As the Maid of Honor at my sisters wedding, there were about 5 million things to do before they said ‘I do’. Candy and her team were there every step of the way to make the day perfect and to deal with any bumps that popped up along the way. I cannot thank her enough for making my sisters wedding day perfect. She is a miracle worker! She dealt with everything from power outages to tornado warnings and never missed a beat. Thank you so much for a perfect day!

    We hired candy and co to help us stay organized and for their month of and day of services.

    Are you a person who really likes getting things right and being on top of your game? Are you someone who is a busy professional who is not excited about things like napkin colors? Do you want to do something a little different? Or do you just want your wedding to go off without a hitch and know that you are in good hands if something pops up on the day of? If you said yes to any of the above, candy and co are your team. Like having the most effective maid of honor times 1000. Candy and Asa handled so many issues that I never knew about (including a road closure and a fire truck at our venue entrance) and did so with speed, grace, and a sense of humor. All recommendations that I received from candy in the lead up to our wedding worked perfectly for me and my fiancé and she was never pushy and always respectful of our desires. I was hesitant to have a wedding at all and very hesitant to hand the reigns over to anyone else, but my fiancé was right, And Candy was the PERFECT fit. Also, you get what you pay for and candy and co is well worth the expense. Thanks team :)
