s were placed delicately & beautifully. I believe we have more comments about the candles than the venue and we were okay with that. I have recommended this company to so many of my friends that are planning any event (even though the prices are the cheapest in town) it's worth every penny. I've already booked "Glowing Occasions" for a surprise anniversary party.

We are from Indiana. However, my Daughter, my one and only child, decided to get married in New Orleans. Back in January, 2015, my Daughter selected Sunday, September 6, 2015 as her Wedding day. As the Mother-of-the-Bride, my goal was to give...
my Daughter and my future Son-in-Law the Wedding of their dream, and I knew candles and lighting would be essential in carrying out that goal. I received the name of Glowing Occasions (and other candle/lighting vendors) from our Venue's approved Vendor list.
I contacted Ginger, the owner of Glowing Occasions, via email. Ginger responded promptly with the most uplifting and positive email. After receiving Ginger's email, I knew she was the right Vendor for us.
I worked with Ginger for approximately eight months, making sure we created the perfect 'magical' look for the Wedding. Because I am a perfectionist by nature, in addition to my Daughter being my only child, I contacted Ginger often, and I asked many questions and made several changes. (Sorry, Ginger :)). Through it all, Ginger was very patient, continued sending uplifting and reassuring emails, and was a delight to work with.
As she promised, Ginger created the most beautiful and 'magical' candle and lighting display for both the Ceremony and the Reception. (My Daughter and I cried when we walked into the Ceremony and Reception Venues and saw the beauty of Ginger's work. And, our Guests were captivated and continue to speak of the beauty.) Thank You, Ginger, for your patience, guidance, honesty, integrity, professionalism, and, most importantly, your kind, gentle and positive spirit during a very happy but emotional time for me.
I am forever grateful!

Some of my vendors were hard to reach at times, but she wasn't. If she didn't answer she would call me back the second she was available.
