Beautiful put together reception
Marty went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly what we envisioned. He ensured that everything would come together, and he exceeded our expectations. From the food, desserts, the staff, and decor. It was amazing!!Sent on 10/24/2020

Marty, Jessica and Kyle are simply amazing!!Sent on 08/12/2013
Every time I called Jessica to change something or if I had questions in general, she insisted that I come in and see. Finally when I made my mind up, Jessica was there to reassure me that everything would look gorgeous(she talked me out of a tacky table cloth!)
The day before my wedding I took all of our favors and other décor and Jessica and Kyle were there to tell me everything would be fine.
The morning of my wedding, I went down to the venue to make sure nothing else needed to be done(my ocd), Jessica and Kyle both shared a bottle of champagne with me to tell me everything would be fine.
Thanks ladies for such an amazing experience!!
