Choosing LaWanda as my coordinator has been one of the best decisions I made. She is always willing to take on responsibility and she is very thoughtful throughout the whole process. She definitely goes above and beyond and it was a pleasure working with her

LaWanda was professional and responded to my questions through text in a timely manner. The time window she gave for when she would finish the job was spot on. The balloon decor that I wanted to surprise my boyfriend with was amazing she did such a great job and I would recommend her to others.
