My experience was AMAZING. As a bride who decided to have a short engagement(6 months) Densie and Elyse were outstanding. Elyse did most of the coordinating and was with us the day of rehearsal and day of the wedding. She was so calm, exceptional at managing people and very reassuring. My bridal party loved her and well after the wedding ended were mentioning how fun and helpful she was! They have great preffered vendor list that works with a wide range of budgets. I am so glad to have had them on one of the most special days.

Denise and Elyse at The Wedding Connection are absolute rockstars. Throughout the planning process they helped guide us of when we needed help, and reminded us of any things we may have been forgetting. They have decades of experience between them, and have truly seen everything at this point! On our wedding day everything went perfectly, with a couple minor details we missed that they were able to quickly remedy. We have so much appreciation for everything they've done throughout this journey, and will forever have so many great memories because of them! Thank you both! :D
