The Dream Team!
We cannot thank Carla and Ashley enough for all of the work they put into our big day. The actual day of was incredibly smooth and I genuinely got to soak in and enjoy my day as a bride. They were so kind - we also used Carla's husband, Bill, as our officiant - we cannot recommend him enough, either! The sweetest people who will take care of the details to make your day a breeze! Thank you, Wedding Authority, for everything! (photo in review by Angelita Esperar Photography)Sent on 02/13/2020

I couldnt have asked for a better team! Dawn and Ashley were definitely on top of their game. We were planning our wedding from 2.5 hours away and they kept me in the loop and helped with even the smallest detail. Our wedding day was amazing and completely stress free. I would hire them every day all day just for piece of mind. The bonus was they were both great people to work with!Sent on 12/28/2019
