    Amazing!

    Becky with Events to Celebrate along with her team were AMAZING! Becky took care of everything the day of our wedding/reception. I couldn't have done it without her! Great communication! They covered all the little "touches" that made it a fabulous day/evening!

She was on top of making sure I had all my "ducks in a row" and was EXTREMELY helpful the day of the wedding....I had NO IDEA how much help hiring Becky would be but I did not have to worry about a thing the day of and leading up to it she made sure I was ready!! She helped decorate and coordinated with the vendors the day of, went over and above our expectations!! So thankful for all of the help!
