The best wedding planner ever!!

I don't have the words to describe how at ease my experience with Shile and Sherina was. Shile worked to bring our vision to life while maintaining my budget and exceeded our expectations. From our frequent calls, her list of trusted vendors, even putting out fires on the actual day of. RAE Affairs did everything to keep my wedding day about my husband and I. They are the best!!!

The most organized & caring team ever!

My husband and I decided to have for our 15th anniversary, the wedding that we’ve never had! We are happy to say that we have chosen RAE affairs for our special event. Shile has worked with me from taking me dress shopping when I had a bad experience with the 1st dress I chose! , to picking the best photographer and videographer, the decor was on point ! Shile & her team made sure we were relaxed and enjoyed every moment of the wedding day! She also surprised us by adding some special touches to the event! Everything exceeded our expectations! She is very passionate about her work and really gives it 💯. Our special day was a success thanks to RAE affairs.
