    Our favorite team!

    We worked with both, Eliza and Cathy in the span of 3.5 months to bring our wedding to life. We brought a lot to the table midst a pandemic, but these ladies did not let that stand in their way. They sold us after our first meeting and made it known that they were there for us, no matter what. Eliza and Cathy were in constant communication with us throughout the whole process, filled with endless ideas to bring any vision we had to life and truly went ABOVE AND BEYOND. They were extremely organized with a weekly checklist of what needed to be completed and they were both easily available via phone calls, emails, texts and zoom. During our Wedding & Reception, our families and friends were stunned at how well decorated & smooth both days were executed. The compliments were endless, and continue up until today. To say we lived our fairytale Wedding is an understatement and we could not have done any of this without their help. They are a dream team and any couple would be lucky to bring them on board for their wedding. We truly appreciated their hard work, passion and most importantly, friendship. Do not think twice! 10/10, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

They will do absolutely anything to make sure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch and is everything that you want it to be!! Do yourself a favor and hire these girls to help make your wedding beautiful and stress free!
