TESTIMONIALS

Testimonial from our client

"Stefanie with Exceptional Weddings and Events is amazing!! She was our wedding coordinator and she set up all the decorations! We got married in the Capitol Theatre in Lebanon, TN. We had a "Movie/Hollywood" theme, and it turned out amazing! All of the props and centerpieces were fun; the guests definitely noticed them! Stefanie kept everyone in line, and made my wedding day spectacular!!!! We were a little pressed for time before the ceremony, but Stefanie and her crew had it all set up perfectly!! I will definitely choose them for any upcoming event! THANK YOU THANK YOU!."

Testimonial from our client

Stefanie with exceptional weddings and events did an absolute phenomenal job with our wedding we had at Two Rivers Mansion. She was professional, courteous and very knowledgeable about different ideas and trends we could use. We gave her an idea of what we were looking for and she took that and turned a plain mansion wedding into an amazing venue where anyone would have been lucky to be married at. She made the place look like a wedding you would see on TV or in a magazine, It was incredible. Her inventory of props, materials, chairs and everything we needed was available to us to use and was in great condition. She worked extremely hard and I would suggest her for any event that you may be having. She went way above and beyond what we expected and blew us away with her work. She is awesome!!!!!."

Testimonial from our client

 Stefanie and her mom were great to work with! They were super helpful! They were truly exceptional! They meet with us several times to make sure our needs were being meet. They even let us use extra decorations on the day of the reception and they didnt make us pay for the additional items. They actually asked if were ok with the additional items. They worked through the night to make sure everything was set up to our liking! I will refer them to anyone having a wedding in the area! They have so many different items to choose from including fountains, chairs, lighting and even decor items!
