The Event Host was hired only a few months before the wedding was scheduled. Our daughter, the bride, thought she could coordinate all the vendors and details while going to school full time and working full time. Well, thankfully we realized that in order of her day to be stress free and everything she hoped it would be we needed to get the pros to take over. This allowed our daughter and me, the mother of the bride the ability to enjoy every aspect of the night before the wedding and the entire day. It was money well spent. Marsha and her team anticipated things we weren't thinking about, kept the flow of the events running smoothly and did so much behind the scenes prepping. Marsha took care of decorating our tables at the reception and each table was different. They looked beautiful. She also decorated the rest of the sitting rooms at the Van Landingham Estate house with personal items that made it so special. They also were responsible for all the flowers and decorating the church next door, which was pretty stark before her creative team transformed it into a lovely setting for nuptials that reflected our daughter and son-in-laws tastes and wishes. There are so many things that you have to spend money on, the dress, the reception, photography, but sometimes it is the thing you don't have to do, like hire an Event Host, that ends up being your best money spent. I really do not have a complaint about how The Event Host handled our 1st daughters wedding, and you can bet when our second daughter gets married, The Event Host will be the first phone call I make.
