    Fantastic Planner

    My husband and I are so thankful for everything Heather did for us in helping plan for our wedding. We started with her "Month Of" package, but quickly upgraded to the partial planning package to help take on the load. She is friendly, supportive, knowledgeable and experienced in making your vision come to life. We couldn't have had the flawless day we did have without her help. Cannot recommend enough!

    Top Notch Wedding Planning!!

    I knew I was going to need some help planning from the beginning and within seconds of meeting Heather, I knew she was going to be the best of the best! My fiancé and I were unfortunately affected by COVID restrictions and needed to reschedule almost an entire year later than our original date. Heather was so accommodating during that time and made sure I was staying level-headed and on track during a very stressful time! She kept me sane and reassured me everything would be great! Our wedding day was so beyond perfect and beautiful due to Heather and her team’s diligence, timeliness, and top-notch wedding planning skills! I couldn’t be more thankful and would recommend Heather over and over again without hesitation!!!

    Flexible and Knowledgable

    Heather is very knowledgeable and transparent while working with her. She knows the ins and outs of the wedding industry, and she had helped us navigate the foreign waters. She worked hard to find the best vendors at the best prices and presented all the options clearly. She guided us with the design aspect and ensured we got our vision for our ceremony and reception. She was flexible to be reached by phone, email, or text due to our unusual schedule. Heather ensured our wedding day ran smoothly and that we got the best experience we could.
