I Hired Genevieve to plan my daughters Wedding shower. Even though the weather didn't cooperate (Snow storm the night before lasting well into the morning), they managed to make it a beautiful event. What I loved the most was the slide show of pictures of my daughter, the family and the groom. I don't know where they got most of the pictures but it was great! The best part was at the end of the slide show they had managed to get a video of the groom, who lived out of town and separate from my daughter at the time, with a heartfelt message to her. The hall was decorated beautifully in purple and blue (favorite colours of the bride) with wonderful centerpieces. There was plenty of food to eat and a beautiful cake, it was delicious. All in all it was exactly what my daughter was looking for. I would like to thank her for all her hard work with such little time to prepare the event it was a great success and we owe it all to her.
