"Lisa is the first contact you need to make when you start planning your wedding. Tell her exactly what you want and she will take it from there. I highly recommend her. She always has suggestions and answers to all your questions. My daughter's wedding was beautiful and exactly the way she wanted it to be. She also became a great friend. She cares and loves what she does and she is great at it!" -Debra
"If you are in the military family!! I absolutely recommend Lisa. We needed this wedding planned in 8 weeks and Lisa figured everything out from the photographer, to the day of nail appointments, to the littlest details to make our wedding unforgettable. There were things I even forgot we spoke about that were there on my wedding day that made it even more magical. The process was hectic, because of the limited time, but she kept us all worry-free. I completely trusted her. She helped everything run smoothly and kept us on schedule. Our wedding was the best day of my life and she helped make it so. A million stars for Lisa!" -Katie
