I made the mistake of forgetting to update Dawn on the location AND date of the wedding. I also didn’t notice this until the week of the wedding!! Dawn was still able to make the cakes and deliver them for us! She is that awesome!! I found my forever person for any future occasions and I am recommending her to everyone! Thanks again so much Dawn! You helped make our special day so perfect!!
The absolute best!
