Please make sure your vendors know to carpool.  I have parked 15 vendor cars with one person in a car before I even got to the wedding guests.  Parking spaces are limited!

Note:  Clean-up is completed from 10pm to 11pm. Please take your decorations with you after the wedding, since I have a wedding or tours the next day.

*  Bubbles are inexpensive and don't make a mess. Pictures come out so beautiful.
