Compliments Regarding a Rehearsal Dinner:

…thank you for the beautiful event you arranged for Alex and Sara… It was very reassuring to talk to you about the arrangements for an important celebration in a site unseen by me, a rental company I didn't know, and a florist I had never engaged. You were so patient and helpful and smart about every single detail. I was glad we had a tent even without rain because it lent the dinner more intimacy and better lighting. All in all, the evening was a huge success and I sincerely thank you. [Greer Gattuso Photography]
