Testimonials

Dear Gidget, Just received my wedding video and, WOW! I didn't realize how incredible our wedding day was. It truly was a dream come true for us. Alan and I are so thankful, Gidget, for all of your dedication and professionalism. The feedback we are receiving from so many that attended is overwhelmingly glowing. Our wedding is still the talk of the town because of the theme you came up with a wine tasting dinner with tables designated as wineries (with wine charms on each glass). How much fun did we have ?1? The vendors you work with are unbelievable. I hope you will use me as a reference to future brides. I am a great testimonial to a wedding day that should be in a Danielle Steel novel (don't you think?)

Truly.... Beverly Ann Arch

Dear Gidget, How can I thank you? You were Absolutely Magnificent! I had received (and still am) so many comments like, "You're wedding was the most organized wedding I've ever been to!" I had total trust in you. You are priceless. I knew you were the perfect coordinator the moment I spoke to you on the phone that day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was truly blessed to have met you.

With Love.... Debbie and Charles Song

Gidget, Thank you so much for all of your help with our June 9th wedding at The Renaissance Place. It was such an amazing day for us and we are so thankful for all you have done for us. All of the vendors were magnificent that you referred us to; they also made our day very special. Our guests told us how helpful you were and you made the day flow flawlessly. As the bride I thought I would stress out about the day, but with you by my side I didn't worry about a thing! May the Lord bless you and your family always.

Best Wishes..... Curtis and Shelly Coombs
