Hi Caroline,

I hope this email finds you well.  I am sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you with this, but here is our recommendation.  Please feel free to send anyone our way and share our email addresses with whomever you need to.

Our wedding in Paris was an absolute dream come true and we could never have realized our dream without your help.  You were extremely organized and innovative with suggestions.  We especially appreciated your patience -- we threw a million different ideas your way and you took them all in stride.  You were also extremely effective in calming me down when we thought our paperwork didn't make it to Paris in time for us to be married!

Has the event been as you expected it to be? 

Our wedding day was everything we expected and more.  We never felt more special or loved.  The people of Paris helped make our day!

Did our providers (your church and priest, organist, restaurant, cakes, driver, photographer, videographer, hairdresser and makeup artists, onsite coordinator) meet your expectations? 

We were extremely happy with the priest and really appreciated his willingness to meet with us ahead of time and perform most of the mass in English.  I think I would only recommend telling couples ahead of time if they can or cannot kiss in the church to "seal the deal".

Additionally, our photos and video were amazing.  We were beyond pleased.  Only suggestion here is to have the couple provide a list of songs they would like to have included in the video vs. having the videographer edit it (he placed an American song in our video that is actually about breaking up!!)

Finally, I loved my hair and make-up, as did my sister.  My bridesmaids had a great time with the mani/pedi as well, so I would totally recommend them to any bride.

I would love to hear your suggestions – if you have any – regarding your experiences.

My last suggestion would be to try and have a run through at the church the night before, especially if working with an American couple.  Just so that the bridal party knows where to go, what the order is, etc. so it isn't decided right before walking in.  Otherwise, everything was a dream and we have no complaints.

Caroline working with you was a dream come true and we can never thank you enough.  We are so glad to be able to call you friends!  We miss you and hope all is well.

Love, Corie and Tony
