Amazing Planning Partners

Alex, Peggy, and the entire DWS team are the BEST! They truly were lifesavers throughout the planning process. As a Type A bride who didn’t want to relinquish all planning control, we selected the Lady In Waiting package and it was perfect. Alex and Peggy were advisors throughout the entire process; providing recommendations and assistance.

Their style was perfect for my needs and Alex was an absolute GEM during our wedding weekend. Her calming demeanor helped ease my stresses as a bride and brought our wedding together perfectly.

Alex and Peggy’s unique areas of expertise made them an excellent planning team. Their relationships and experience with vendors and venues in the FL Keys really helped as I planned my wedding from NY. They were also extremely helpful in taking unbiased stances as I evaluated vendors and not once did I feel like I was steered in the wrong direction.

We cannot recommend the DWS team enough as planners for your FL Keys wedding.

Absolutely Amazing

I can't say enough about how amazing Peggy and her team were. She is absolutely, unbelievably fun to work with, knows what she is talking about, and truly made our vision come to life. If you are having a wedding in her area, I don't see how you could use anyone else!!!

Peggy was amazing!

From the months leading up to our big day until the wedding day, Peggy was spot on. She has an assortment of colleagues/vendors that work very well together to put together a memorable event. She took a lot of the stress out of the wedding planning leading up to the big day and virtually all of the stress on the day of the event! Peggy really is a professional at putting a magical day together and if you're having a wedding in the keys and are looking for help, look no further! Thank you again, Peggy!
