Fairy tales really do come true.  For this fabulous couple, MAHSA and NIMA, we pulled out all the stops to make every little girl's dream wedding become a reality.  And their Wedding Day certainly proved to be just that - a magical affair fit for Royalty.  Our stunningly gorgeous Princess and her handsome Prince both exuded love beyond anything, everything and everyone.  This was their special day ... their special moment ... together at last, as one.

" Duncan is the best thing that will happen to you... after getting engaged of course! Seriously, any bride looking for a wedding planner to help plan your wedding or just someone to run the show on your big day, this is your MAN!!  My videographer (David Ethridge, also great!) referred me to Duncan and I'm so glad he did.  My husband and I had Duncan's services for three weeks prior to our wedding and he was like a GOD that took care of every little detail and organized every little thing that you can imagine.  Our wedding may have been a disaster if we didn't have Duncan.  I was skeptical at first because my husband and I were the ones who had planned everything and we were so on top of the whole thing that I really didn't think we would need a planner.  But then after talking to Duncan and telling him all about our wedding, I realized that there were little details that we had not even thought about and great ideas that we had not even considered.  Duncan is extremely creative and can give you lots of wonderful ideas and referrals.  Anyone who works in the wedding industry knows that when it comes to planners, Duncan Reyes is the one and that he is the GOD of planners in this industry.  No joke.  This will be the best money you spend on your wedding... and it gets you peace of mind, a great new friend, and a wedding that he makes possible for YOU and YOUR husband to actually ENJOY!
