Happy customers

Our wedding was a large wedding of 600 guests! I had a vision of a Parisian glamour themed wedding and was very worried a size this large of a wedding would quickly turn into a nightmare. Let me tell you, I was wrong! Enter the Wedding Fairy, Sharon Barwick and Simply Elegant owner, Robert Virda. Read the whole story.

Feriel

I am so grateful for your patience, multiple quote adjustments, delicious! tasting and amazing food and service on the day of my “big day”. Eric and I have received a ton of feedback from our guests that the food was incredible, and my only regret was that I didn’t get to eat more on the big day!

Paige and Eric

We feel we saved money by using Simply Elegant because of the special connections and relationships they have with vendors, we also saved money by not having to take time away from our jobs to go visit several vendors to see if they were appropriate for us….Sharon just knew what we wanted – gave us options to pick from and therefore it was basically one stop shopping.
