“I cannot recommend Hanna enough! Leading up to the big day I never felt like I was in the dark. Hanna provided calmness and unique alternatives to situations where I may have been stuck during planning. On the big day -she was amazing working with the other vendors and creating our dream team! When I thought I was lost or behind on tasks, I’d turn and Hanna would be right there to guide the way! Thank you for making our day so special and run so smoothly!”
