She had so many great ideas and really helped me create my dream wedding. I tell all brides hiring a wedding planner is the best thing you can do. It takes all the stress out of being a bride and just makes it about the fun and the memories.

Were those props brought in from home?! I can’t decide what wedding props I should bring in from home and if it’s something I could just rent. Keeping the packing to a minimum!! Btw – congrats!!
