    Our Beautiful Wedding

    My wife and I would like to thank Ricki for all of her incredible work coordinating our wedding. We hired her quite late in our planning process and she still completely orchestrated everything we desired. There were a lot of last-minute changes, especially with our guest list and she fluidly rolled with it and had everything done on time for us! Every step of the way, she was there offering ideas, suggestions and advice to help make our wedding an exceptional and unique event. Ricki truly went the extra mile seeing so that all the arrangements were completed in a timely fashion—even thinking ahead to the unexpected with a Plan B and C! Rain was predicted and yet, we were still able to have an outdoor ceremony! Well, we didn’t worry knowing that Ricki was on board, planning for every contingency. When I called her in a panic the afternoon before, she had already arranged for the canopy to cover the grounds, for our ceremony and guest seating areas. Ricki was a gem to work with, generous with her time, and had a keen understanding of our religious customs. Our beautiful wedding went off without a hitch thanks to the creativity and organizational skills of our fully prepared “Special Event Genie®,” Ricki Lewis. We couldn’t have done it without her. We would love to work with her again in the future (anniversary, baby shower and birthday parties, God willing!). – Thank you, Brian F.
