My husband & I decided to surprise our children with a private & intimate ceremony in Sonoma, Ca. over the holidays. Denise was absolutely amazing & pulled it off in less than 2 weeks. We were married at Nicholson Ranch Winery in a gorgeous rustic chapel overlooking the valley. Denise was organized, creative, reassuring, and available to me & my family to the very end. She spent countless hours working with the Chef & winery on the perfect details. All of this on a budget! What meant the most to us…….She listened & knew what we wanted for our perfect wedding. We loved her so much, we may beg her to plan our large family wedding in Italy! YES, she’s that good!
