My dream wedding and my dream planning experience! I owe the most amazing weekend of my life to Peggy from DWS. from Texas and my now husband (whoop!) is from the U.K. but we live and were planning our Key West wedding from Australia (Perth, which couldn't be farther). I actually don't know where to begin with my overwhelming praise to give to Peggy. I guess to start I kept thinking if she could just do what she did for other people, for me, I'd be happy.

I booked Peggy for full planning as planning from that far was going to be super hard. As well as everyone I know assumed I'd be the biggest bridezilla (thanks for the confidence fam). Let me just say - she is worth every cent, penny and dollar. I was the most relaxed bride (from start to finish) because of her. First, she made planning effortless. When we made a trip to Key West 6 months before the wedding to vacay and plan. She booked all of our wedding appointments for us. She gave us insight to the BEST vendors in the area - couldn't be happier with every single one.
When I said I'd be happy with the other weddings she has styled - I was totally wrong. Peggy is more than "cookie cutter" she is an artist and creator. She made MY wedding dreams come true and made everything so personal and brought a perfect vision to life!
Most importantly I couldn't have been more relaxed on our big day knowing Peggy was there. She had proved to me over and over to really trust her and I knew no matter what happened (as in my dress train turned black during my first look, hours before my ceremony) everything was going to be perfect. And it was - I couldn't have cared less for anything that went wrong (which is inevitable). I owe it to Peggy. No one ever called me bridezilla. I thought about nothing on our day but marrying the man of my dreams and having the BEST time with family and friends. She made magic that night and everyone could feel it. Thank you Peggy, for the most Magical night of our lives. - A&B Simmons

When I arrived at our wedding venue I was absolutely amazed. Peggy really does take your vision and goes above and beyond. I did the "lady in waiting" package and it was perfect for me. For the design, I had a good idea of what I wanted, but Peggy really brought it to life and knew all the best vendors to work with. I spent so many nights talking with her on the phone looking through plates, linens and florals. She has such a great eye and would recommend things that I wouldn't have thought of. She is also so positive and so nice to work with. A week before our wedding it was looking like a huge storm was going to come in. Our wedding was supposed to be completely outside and I immediately started to panic, but Peggy stayed so calm and started planning the rain back up. It ended up being perfect weather, but im sure if it rained she still would have found a way to make it beautiful. Peggy is the absolute best in Key West and she will make your wedding your dream day. (photography by Care Studios)Sent on 05/31/2019
