As a mother of the bride planning an out of town wedding, I must offer kudos to Carmen! She made every effort to hear and accommodate the ideas of both the bride and the mother of the bride, which were not always the same. She was able to navigate those challenges successfully. She made herself available on three different occasions to meet with us and discuss the details of the wedding plans and she offered very useful feedback, having served in this particular venue before. She catered the food, decorated the venue and provided all the greenery, bouquets, and boutonnieres for the wedding party. In spite of the kind of glitches often beyond ones control (e.g. a bit late after getting stuck behind an accident), she created the look and feel we were hoping for and both the bride and I were very pleased! A couple of stand out moments: Carmen ordered enough flowers to prepare more than one set of boutonnieres in case we were not happy with the coral color we had chosen (but we were!). The brides bouquet was very close to the picture provided by the bride and turned out BEAUTIFUL. The food was tasty and while there were not leftovers, no one left the venue hungry and we did not run out of food. Carmen really did everything possible to make this as close to "perfect" as it could be. We couldn't be happier. Thanks for all your hard work Carmen!! And a very special thank you for the extra effort at the end of the event!!! You're the best!
