  • Risa is fabulous. We met her via a referral and were very fortunate to have her expertise available on relatively short notice. Risa possessed the perfect combination experience, poise and presence to guide my bride - and everyone else - through the details and stress of a long day. She is thorough and meticulous about making sure everything, and everyone, are on script, but also charming and gracious toward family and guests. I had complete faith that everything was going to run smoothly because of her. You're in good hands with Risa!
