We planned our wedding from Kansas, never having been to Sanibel Island before. It couldn't have been possible or nearly as perfect without Patricia. She thinks of everything! We can truly say it was the wedding of our dreams. We got married at sunset on the beach. Patricia arranged the perfect hotel for us, our family and guests. She arranged to have a cellist play during our ceremony on the beach. She arranged for the flowers, the place to have our wedding clothes pressed, she had our wedding cake delivered to the restaurant where we were to have our reception dinner. She truly thought of everything. She was incredibly kind and responsive, always getting back to us regarding our questions. She made us feel so at ease about the process. She took care of everything so we were able to relax and enjoy our wedding and time in Sanibel. The cost of hiring her as our wedding planner was so minimal compared to the service she provided. She could charge more than twice what she does and it would be worth it. She truly addressed our every need and concern, even arranging for a "beach wheel chair" to be waiting at the hotel for my father. It was truly a perfect wedding and we couldn't be happier. The ceremony that she provides is so meaningful and unique, my family couldn't get over how special and significant she made it.

First wedding for us so we didn't know what to expect or do. Patricia walked us through the steps and took care of everything we needed.
Communication and professionalism is top notch.
We were very happy with Patricia being our officiant and wedding planner.

I am a very busy midlife professional. My fiance and I wanted to "elope" to Sanibel Island but were unsure how we could pull it off with our time and distance constraints. I found Pat on the internet and she made our dream possible. Pat took care of every detail. She is gracious and professional. Every aspect of the wedding was perfect and exactly as we wanted. I highly recommend Pat's services.
