"Tammy was able to turn my vision into a reality. 

I was able to finally see the wedding I'd been dreaming of come to fruition. I like things to be simple and understated, yet elegant. This "simple elegance" is exactly what Tammy created for us. She turned a bland, boring space into a beautiful, romantic, yet relaxed reception space. From the flowers to the lighting to the place cards...every little touch was perfect. Working with Tammy and Behind the Veil helped produce the wedding of my dreams. I'd recommend her to any and every bride without hesitation!"
