Best wedding planner!!!! 💍❤️

I personally had an amazing experience with Great Beginnings! Marisa was there for me from start to finished! From finding all of my vendors and going over the fine details of the contracts. She was on site the day of my wedding as well and made sure everything went smooth! I can’t thank you enough! Anyone looking for a wedding planner, look no future!!!!! ❤️🙏❤️

We had our wedding on 8/20/22 and let me just say that our night would not have been the same without Marisa From the moment we booked, Marisa has been a tremendous help at answering our questions promptly and assisting with the timeline of our event, and giving us helpful suggestions. From the minute my husband and I stepped into the reception room, we were in awe of the set-up!!b AMAZING WORK !!! BOOK HER !
