Nikki contacted us because the wedding planner her sister used, who no longer lives or works in the area, recommended us. What an honor! Their destination wedding was so beautiful, with the Atlantic Ocean serving as the backdrop for both their ceremony and reception. Nikki says:
Heather did a WONDERFUL job coordinating everything for the day of our wedding! I was not stressed leading up to our big day due to her flawless attention to detail and ability to manage anything that came up. She was efficient, timely and organized which is just what I needed to make me feel confident in allowing her to take the reins. If any mishaps came up on the day of our wedding I didn't know about it because she was there to take care of it :) Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was down to the last detail and we are on cloud nine remembering the perfection of that day. I highly recommend First Coast Weddings and Events for any bride and/or groom looking to make their day flow easily.
