Saprena and Greg are the best. We had a venue that was a very non-traditional one and they came in and decorated the place in such away no one would have ever guessed the previous state. With Saprena and Greg your mind will be at ease and you can just worry about entertaining your guests.

Saprena and Greg did a wonderful job on our daughter’s Paris themed Sweet 16. They were very well organized and extremely professional in the way they interacted with all of our guests. Saprena and Greg put in a lot of thoughtful details in everything. They made the venue look like a fairy tale. Ron and I can’t thank you enough for making our daughter’s Sweet 16 a dream come true!!!

As photographers, we highly recommend Greg and Saprena. They responded immediately to all of our phone calls and emails. They were extremely organized and reached out well in advance of the couple's event to discuss details. They effectively coordinated with many vendors under difficult circumstances (the couple was often unresponsive and uncommunicative). We were impressed with their professionalism and obvious dedication to their work!

Saprena and Greg are wonderful! They will make your day very special. They are very professional, organized, will follow the details for your wedding day, and ensure the day proceeds as planned. I honestly don't know what I would have done without them. They made sure everything looked beautiful!

Saprena & Greg are wonderful. We selected them for their décor services and made our wedding day absolutely gorgeous. They were both such a pleasure to work with and made decorating our space so easy. I made so many changes and very frequently but they were not hazed and happy to help my husband and I create our vision. I loved the amount of variety they had in their stock. If they did not have what I pictured, Greg could make it, which is so cool! Saprena was always on top of showing me pictures and communicating anything she needed, making the decoration one of the easiest parts of our wedding. Thank you Greg and Saprena.
