Elaine was a delight to work with. She is so patient and a great listener. Wedding planning can be a headache but even with how scatter-brained I became she somehow knew what I meant when I told her what I wanted for our ceremony. It was perfect!! She did a wonderful job! She spoke clearly and was calmly enthusiastic. She also takes the bride into consideration with every aspect. I have no complaints at all. It was a dream come true and her part was fantastic!
