"It was a wonderful event! Everything was perfect. Your staff did a fantastic job. I have been doing these events for 13 years and this was one of the best I have ever planned. You and Connie were a pleasure to work with, so responsive and helpful. And your staff last night was truly outstanding. Our clients had a great time and so did we. Thanks so much!"
