Here is what some previous clients had to say…
“I hired “With This Ring Wedding Events” and I do not have any regrets. The owner, Vanessa is such a beautiful and lovable person. I found Vanessa via Wedding Wire after unexpectedly having to search for a new coordinator/planner 6 months before my wedding. I am so happy I did! She was extremely professional, passionate, and dedicated to the whole wedding planning process. Not only did I find an amazing wedding planner, but I now have a longtime friend. I have already and will continue recommending Vanessa!!!” – Stephanie C, Tanner Hall
“Vanessa did an awesome job organizing my nephew’s 5th birthday party, it was a Star War’s Theme. When we walked into the venue, it felt like we were in a “galaxy far far away!” I would absolutely recommend her and use her again for future events.” – Martha C., in hostess’s home
