From the moment we met Jen in Flagstaff I knew she was the one to share our love story on the best day of our lives. My husband and I met Jen in January and got hitched in October, it was a short 9 months- but we feel like we have known her our entire life. She is incredibly... Read More warm and attentive to her us and she went above and beyond in all of our meetings to get to know us and our family. She created a beautiful personal ceremony filled with laughter and tears with our closest family and friends. Not to mention during our reception multiple of our guests came up to us and said that was the best ceremony they had ever been to! I would say Jen is one of the best investments we made, not the type money can buy either... a life investment in our marriage.
