"Things went absolutely perfectly at our reception. I've had so many  compliments on the food, the staff (especially the bartenders), and the beautiful mansion.  When I walked in that night and saw the house with  all of the lights, people, and music, it felt absolutely magical. Thanks to you and your staff for doing such a wonderful job!" - Sara R
