'We can't express how happy we are with Cheryl Raffan as our wedding celebrate. She is a true professional that cares about our journey leading up to the wedding, she has met us numerous times before the big day and also rehearsed at the location for us, giving us valuable recommendations. Cheryl is determined to make us and our guest a pleasant experience at the ceremony.
