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.Sent on 06/12/2012

All the pictures and the backdrops were outstanding!
Our reservation at Thistle Lodge went very smoothly and the food was fantastic!
Sharing your life experiences with your husband over fifty years on the island made our reunion even more special.
The best to you and once again,
THANKS and GOD BLESS.
