It’s been said...

“Thank you making our wedding day a success! It’s a beautiful beginning to our lives together. So many thanks to you, and the watercolor team for allowing our commitment to marriage to be one of the best days of our lives. It’s a pleasure working with you!”

“I wanted to send you a quick note to tell you we had my daughter's wedding at the Lake House about six weeks ago. The entire event was first class due to your team. The amount of compliments I received from relatives and friends were too many to count. One of the guests told me he was in the hospitality business and said the food was the best he's had at an event of this type. From the cocktail party through the reception everything was perfect.”

“Just want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did planning and welcoming us to last night's dinner. Your presence at the dinner made me feel like a guest, too! I'll never forget you.”

“What can I say except and huge THANK YOU for all your hard work this past Saturday night. It was a great night even though the wind howled and the temperatures dropped at lightning speed!! I know you had your hands full making sure everything went to plan....it really was magical"

“I just wanted to say thank you for everything with my wedding. I am sure to you I am just another number/bride...but to me.. you stood out so much in the process. You have the best demeanor in handling people, questions, stressful situations etc, and were so fun to work with. I could totally relax because I was so confident you would handle everything perfectly. It's such a strange thing to emotionally digest after planning a wedding and working with all of these people for several months and then its just over! But I just wanted to make sure I reached back out and let you know we all appreciated you so much! Also thank you for even being willing to stick your hands in my rear to fix my bustle ;)”.
