"Candace is hands down one of the  best  wedding vendor decisions we made! She is pure magic at what she does! Candace was absolutely                                                       She exceeded all our expectations with our engagement photos and so we contracted with her for our wedding as well. I had two months to go before my wedding and she helped me find a make up artist and florist in Seattle. I can’t speak highly enough of her personality, her work and her professionalism. She went above what was required of her and made
the entire process for my family and I fun and easy.                         
               I would recommend her!!!"

maddy & Dennis


amazing to  work with.

“Candace is                                           Truly! We feel so lucky that Candace was willing to be a part of our wedding day. From the first time we connected over the phone, we knew Candace’s                                                                                                                  would be an incredible asset to our wedding!”

"Candace is a                                                                                                                                            We now know the previous fallout was divine intervention because finding Candace made our wedding perfect. She took the time to scout our location and 
                                                                  as if it were a novel she was writing."
