First of all I’d just like to say thank you so much to you, Laura, and the entire Matfen team for being so wonderful throughout the entire planning process and on the day of the wedding! Everyone was so wonderful and we had an absolutely amazing day! We are especially grateful for your help leading up to the wedding, as well as Laura! Jackie was so wonderful and helpful the day before the wedding and the day of the wedding! And Alex made the day go so smoothly for us!
