"Thank you for such a fabulous day getting married at the Temple of Peace! The hall looked absolutely glorious, and all of our guests commented on how beautiful everything was. Thank you for all your help in the weeks leading up to the day, we couldn't have asked for more- in the end everything went off without a hitch and I couldn't stop smiling all day."
