    We hired Ricki for her “Wedding Day Consultant Package”. She put in a lot of time and special attention doing her very best to make our wedding day so very special. She arrived early to make sure all the tables & chairs were set up and decorated, directed the caterer, the photographer, and the musicians. We were impressed at how knowledgeable she is in all the facets that go into a wedding. Ricki certainly knows her stuff! Ricki offers more value with her services than I could have imagined. She really goes the extra mile! I am a fourth generation matchmaker with much experience and I am recommending her services to all my clients. Ricki took a lot of worry off my mind, knowing that she was there taking care of all the details… and just plain being our eyes and ears so we could relax and enjoy my own wedding. She was there making sure we were well taken care of the entire day! Thank you, Ricki! – Terry Brussel-Rogers & Craig Brussel Rogers
