    Best day of our lives!

    Andrea made sure that our day was everything that we could ask for. From our meetings before the wedding to decorations and coordinating the entire night she was amazing! Thank you Andrea for all that you do! And in the end you gain a wonderful friend!

    Blair & Damien wedding

    The experience from start to finish was nothing short of amazing! When Mrs. Andrea says that she’ll take care of you, that’s just what she does! From the space to the preparation & the food I truly had a beautiful experience at Stage 1!!
