But, don’t take my word for it:
“All I have to say is Iben is the absolute best! She has exquisite taste and is fully aware of all the little details that make a wedding perfect. What I really loved about her too was how quickly she got back to me. Since I planned my whole wedding from my home on the mainland, it was all done through email. I must have emailed her a thousand times and every single time she got back to me within 24hrs – usually faster. She made planning my wedding stress free and fun. On the day before our wedding when we met her for the first time she was very friendly, laid back and fun. On the day of the wedding she totally put me at ease as well, taking care of everything and sending her calming aurora my way. If you are looking for a dependable, talented and friendly wedding planner/person that can give you the classy wedding of your dreams then Iben is the one for you! Thank you Iben!!!”
