Denise Adesso/The Wedding Connection
We started planning our wedding last fall and reached out Denise and team with interest in one of the venues they represent. Fast forward to the pandemic and the era of the microwedding. Our plans drastically changed to about a quarter of the original guest list. Denise became our advocate with grace, good humor, flexibility and responsiveness along the way. We had a memorable reception loved by our friends and family. Denise and her network of vendors were professional and a pleasure to work with - thanks Denise!Sent on 08/24/2020
The Wedding Connection's reply:Thank you Reagan and Jennifer for the kind words. This has been a challenging year for couples and the two of you took the changes with an amazingly positive attitude which made it easy to do my job. And don't forget that you were living in different cities during the whole planning process! Loved working with you and your micro wedding was a blast!

Wedding Connection was fabulous!
Denise and staff were friendly, responsive and supportive from the start. They toured us at two venues of interest, with knowledgeable insight, great suggestions and enthusiasm. Once we selected and signed for the wedding venue (River House), Denise provided preferred vendor referrals and expert guidance every step of the way.
As the mother of the bride and a calligrapher and designer, I chose to take on some of the invitation and decorative details and advance planning. However, when it came to the big day, I knew that I could relax and fully enjoy the wedding day celebration without a worry. With Denise and staff overseeing the day, along with the amazing staff of Feast for a King catering, Kaemmerling Photography, and all the vendors; every detail was well taken care of. From the pre-wedding preparations and photo sessions to welcoming of guests, the ceremony, cocktail reception, dinner and dancing everything flowed seamlessly. It was truly a joyful celebration all around and such a memorable day for our daughter and son-in-law and all our family and friends.

The Wedding Connection's reply:Thank you Noreen. You were all such fun to work with and your calligraphy touches in every area of the wedding were fantastic!
I've worked many weddings with The Wedding Connection. Denise is not only a top rated professional, she is also a compassionate and a caring wedding/event planner. The Bride and her wedding party are always number one with Denise. From the beginning to end Denise always there with her expertise and recommendations. I highly recommend The Wedding Connection for any size wedding. You will in the best hands!
The Wedding Connection is always great to work with. They are organized, efficient and professional, they ensure all of their events are run the same way. We have been working together for 15 years and look forward to 15 more. Feast for a King Catering highly recommends The Wedding Connection!
I recently worked with Denise from The Wedding Connection on a wedding in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She was super responsive and friendly throughout the process of preparing for the wedding and really stayed on top of making the day run smoothly for the couple as well as for us vendors. I am really looking forward to working with her again and would recommend her to any discerning couple who really wants to plan something special.
