I remember my first meeting with Susan and Ron so vividly as if it were just yesterday. As I went about my sales pitch, these two sat in silence, watching me as I animatedly waved my hands around as I talked. After what seemed like a long time, they decided on a custom package they wanted to go for and asked straight-away about booking, right there and then. I always suggest couples to review my Pricing Catalogue and I’m so happy that Susan and Ron were in agreement with practically everything I said. Perfect on-the-spot booking, if you ask me.

I was so excited to learn that they picked the Japanese Garden for their venue! It’s the perfect setting especially for late afternoon ceremonies when light isn’t too spotty. Its tranquil ambiance made for such a breathtaking wedding!
