"Had the most insightful day at today's workshop. Got to learn everything I wanted to know plus more from the amazing Dominique, who is a natural leader and definitely a motivational woman. She gives 110% to this workshop which is clearly visible. I did not know what to expect but I can say I got more than what I paid for. I am extremely happy that I attended and would advise any future wedding planner to attend if you want real life knowledge from an experienced planner."
