I recommend couples hire a Wedding Planner for an affair of this caliber. Not only because there’s lots to know about timing and details, but because emotions get in the way of making good decisions for everyone involved. But, this bride defied all the rules. Along with the help of family, friends & trusted vendors, she managed to make every little detail work perfectly, PLUS provide a comfortable and excellent time to be had by all. Kudos to you Madeleine! It takes more than just smarts to do what you accomplished.
