reviews from our happy customers

Thank you so much for everything you are doing for our wedding. We really appreciate all the help you are giving us throughout this entire journey. Our wedding would not be happening if it weren’t for you.
We are so looking forward to Sunday!!

It was a pleasure working with you at the Casa Romantica. You are terrific and your staff was professional, friendly and efficient. The food was delish and the plate presentation was great. I look forward to having the opportunity of working together again.

You are so good at what you do! You made Cara’s wedding a spectacular success. We loved every minute of it. We laid around the house, got pampered, beautified and the like while you were taking care of it all. Thank you for a precious gift, allowing me to appreciate and enjoy every minute. You and Anna are truly gifted at this. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
