AYANA AND PENEE'S WEDDING

May, 2009 in Richmond

"Our wedding was awesome. It was romantic and just as I envisioned it. I wanted to get married outside and he wanted to get married inside, so we compromised and had the ceremony outside and the reception inside. Our theme was the 1940's Harlem Renaissance. At the last minute we fired our planner and my friend stepped in. It was perfect. She knows me so well, that she remembered all of the little details that I forgot. She placed frankencense and lavender incense all around and it gave the area a sacred feel. Our wedding singers were so good that people were crying before the vows. Of course we both cried during the vows. At the end we did a foot washing ceremony as a symbol of our commitment to always care for each other. Guests said that it was so beautiful and that everytime the wind blew blossoms and leaves fell. They said it was like a movie. My only regret is that we ran out of funds and did not hire a videographer. If you have to choose between video and photos, go for the video. We actually got amazing pictures from our friends."

"Reagan is wonderful. She was a delight to work with. I changed my mind about the cake about 40 times and she was patient and VERY understanding. Finally, I gave her our colors and a description of our theme and let her design our cake. It was so beautiful. And it was the best cake I have ever had. All of my guests are still raving. I just hope we can hold off on eating that top layer for a year :) I am ordering all of my cakes from her. She is also a wedding planner, and even though I did not hire her for that, she had the perfect words to calm me down when my own planner failed me. Hire her!!!"

"I was not pleased with this vendor. She did nothing except recommend a photographer. Every request that I made was met with a sigh and I was made to feel like I was putting her out. When I expressed a problem that we had with a vendor, her only concern was getting paid. I planned my whole wedding! She did nothing! We released her the day before our wedding. I don't recommend her as a planner."

The only thing is since we got married during prom season, he had a prom booked after our wedding and had to leave almost immediately so we didn't get as many pictures with the car as I would have liked. Hire him!!"
