This wedding was just all around enjoyable and amazing!   Yes, the pictures and video show nothing short of beautiful in every inch, however it's the people who really made this wedding stand out as super awesome.  We had such a fun and kind group of people to work with this day - bride, groom, families and our vendor friends all included!  What more can I say?  We are always greeted like old friends by the staff at the Ritz Carlton Cleveland and that also made this wedding day a breeze!  From the heartfelt ceremony by Dana Cummings to the red carpet, champagne and step and repeat photobooth entrance to the cocktail hour, to the absolutely perfect "on the beat" bridal party announcements by DJ Smoov (to "It Takes Two" by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock) to the packed non-stop dance floor all evening, it was truly a 5 star affair.  Congratulations Kristin & Phil!!!  Love you guys and thanks for the awesome review!

I am so blessed to have Valarie as my wedding planner. I would like to explain how amazing she is!! When we first started our journey she was pregnant and was unsure if she could take me on and as a bride from out of state I was lost already. I emailed her back and she sent me recommendations of other local planners!! I mean come on! At the end we knew it was just meant to be. She knows her stuff!! There is no bluff or pushing you into only her vendors and many people will try to tell you that planners will do. She is a great guide for you and soon she will know you so well that she knows the decision you will make. She makes sure the wedding is about you.
There is no better feeling then calling places and when you drop your wedding planners name they talk about how much they love her and how lucky I am. She just makes life easier. She stays in your budget and will suggest better solutions to get what you want, but not at the cost of it being cheap. I live in NYC and planning a wedding in Cleveland is not easy, but Valarie was the best wedding planner any bride could ask for. I gained a friend from the experience. I know I don't know any other wedding planners, but she is by far the BEST!
