“ This was one of the most beautiful and flawless weddings I have ever attended. I would think that perhaps I was prejudiced because, after all, it was my son’s wedding, but people are still telling us how much they enjoyed the wedding and how beautiful it was. The rehearsal dinner was so much fun and once again, flawless. The guests kept thanking us for a wonderful evening and I had to admit that Craig and Kirksey made the magic and the food was perfect. I have to be honest that not once did I worry about the dinner or the wedding. Craig and Kirksey are amazing and I knew the dinner and the wedding would far exceed our expectations and it did. Both are heroes! Craig and Kirksey were both so kind and generous to Chris and Courtney. I thank you all so much for all you did to make this special day an amazing and magical memory for all of us.” — Christa Krumins, Mother of the Groom
