I am very pleased to write this review because my husband and I had the best wedding ceremony we could ever asked for and all because Sensational Ceremonies did an amazing job!

It was extremely beautiful and I loved that they cared so much to add so many details on it, specially little Mickey figures - since we were getting married at Characters In Flight at Disney Springs.
