Greetings from an airplane as we zip towards our honeymoon!! I just wanted to make sure to stop by and say THANK YOU SO MUCH for your excellent, excellent, excellent service. Throughout the wedding planning process, we must have asked you one THOUSAND questions and sent you one THOUSAND emails as we navigated our budget and you were always so incredibly patient with us and you never made us feel rushed or pressured. Thank you for your grace and guidance, the Moravian stars made our tent look absolutely STUNNING!!! We loved, loved, loved how sleek and unique they looked during the day and during the night…what can I say? They glowed so warmly and made the whole space so rich and cozy!! It was the perfect choice for our wedding and working with you guys was such a genuine joy.

They super last minute agreed to install drapes on the ceiling of our wedding venue after our original plan fell through…Scott is really talented and cares a lot about making your wedding perfect. They went out of their way to make sure it looked beautiful. The draping really added a lot to our space and made it look so soft and dreamy. I am so thankful for them!

“I appreciated that they were willing to come out to the venue beforehand to brainstorm different options.”

We hired Altared Weddings & Events to provide custom chandeliers and uplighting at our wedding venue. They were both friendly and very professional. I appreciated that they were willing to come to the venue beforehand to brainstorm different options that would work best for us.
