    My wedding was Perfect

    Roxanne and her team did an unbelievable job with my wedding. All of my co workers keep asking, how was your wedding and my response is "it was perfect." That is the best way for me to describe it. I had a vision and Roxanne took the vision to fruition. The wedding site was beautiful with the roses in bloom and black mountain in the distance. The team turned the cafe into a breathtaking venue for my reception. They transformed the cafe into a bride's dream. From the lighting to the decor down to the perfection of the linens.
    Thank you so much Roxanne and your team
    You made this day magical

    Warm regards, Roxanne
