Client Testimonials

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

It’s impossible to capture just how great Emily is to work with and how important she was to making our wedding a success. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderful person to have around when stress levels started rising. In the occasional sea of chaos that a wedding can be, she was always calm, cool, collected, sympathetic, and helpful. She met every single need we had, sometimes before we even knew we needed her. Emily helped get 150 guests from one ballroom to another, organized cocktail hour, got our band, photographer, and hair/makeup vendors set up and fed, made some to-go boxes for us, and even jumped in with some tissues and eye drops when the emotions got the better of us. We had a perfect wedding day thanks in huge part to Emily, and if you’re lucky enough to work with her, your wedding will be perfect, too

Marilyn was an absolute JOY to work with. She made the most special day of our lives run flawlessly. She helped us with everything from the months leading up to the wedding, to the rehearsal dinner and the day of. She helped us form a very detailed timeline to ensure the day ran smoothly, she was extremely organized and on top of everything. With so much experience in events, Marilyn was so helpful when it came down to making decisions about so many little details. As we have said many times…if there was something that did not go according to plan on our wedding day, we have yet to realize it! Thank you for your tremendous efforts in making our wedding day the most special day of our lives. It wouldn’t have been nearly as easy without you!

Where to begin? Thank you Dickie from the bottom of our hearts! That feels like a good place to start. Our wedding was absolutely more than we could have asked [for] or imagined and you were such an integral part in making it all so wonderful! What a blessing to have our closest friends, family and neighbors there to celebrate our union. We have not stopped hearing from guests about how well taken care of/spoiled they felt. What a gift for our loved ones to also feel the love! Thank you for all of your hard work over the past six months. Your energy and genuine nature made the planning process so much fun and I truly miss interacting with you on a regular basis. I think Adam said it best when he said you are the perfect mix of calm and competent. You are that and so much more. I hope you are relaxing and enjoying time with family – you deserve it! We are so grateful for you and feel lucky our paths crossed.

Allie & Adam
