I hired Angie to help plan my wedding and it was the best decision I could have made. Not only did she save us a ton of money, she was able to come up with great alternatives to things I wanted, but couldn't afford. She was a life saver in a high stress situation. She kept my husband and I calm in situations where we wouldn't have been had she not been there. Angie is very professional, on the ball, often a step ahead of me on what needs to be done and she is great fun to be around. She has great relationships with her vendors which works in your favor in the end. I will never plan a party without Angie's assistance. I can't rave about her enough. Seriously, my husband and I LOVED her!Apr 17, 2014
