SO excited for our 2021 Wedding!
Arilys has been so great to work with! She is very informative, always responds with helpful answers to my many questions, and is very committed to making sure our wedding dreams come true! We are having a long engagement to have time to plan and save money, and for my fiancé to finish med school, but even with a long planning timeline she makes herself available for planning help as we are in the beginning stages, letting us tour the venue, connecting us to catering vendors and other partnering vendors, etc. We love her and are SO excited for our wedding at the Cruz Building! Wishing it was sooner!Sent on 01/04/2019
