Valerie and team are rockstars

We had a pretty big wedding. 240 people in Austin (a destination for us and all guests). So we had to rely pretty heavily on Valerie for the preparation. She and her team (s/o to Nicolet) knocked it out of the park. We hired them for the rehearsal dinner and brunch as well and they executed everything flawlessly and gave us the greatest weekend of our lives.

Preparation was the key to their success. A few months out, they began sending us drafts of schedules, seating charts, and menus, with clear direction on what decisions needed to be made. Her detailed itinerary for the whole weekend kept all vendors in sync with each other. She keeps a level head and was very available to answer all our questions. She even took a call with us while she was on her way to another wedding.

We felt like an important client, but more importantly, we felt that the team wanted to throw us the best wedding possible.

Very nice to work with.

Valerie and Nicolette were extremely easy to work with. They were patient and really worked hard to bring our vision to life. And, I must say, they nailed it.
