Hi, hope all is well with you. Matt and I are back from our honeymoon.  It was very relaxing and beautiful there. Every one had a great time at the wedding.  Thank you so much for putting it all together for us.

People are still talking about our wedding.  It was the party of the decade for our family and friends.  We are excited about our future arrival.

About:

Anna Maria Franziska of the Palatinate (née Saxe-Lauenburg, 1672–1741) had this Baroque country house built prior to 1720; it was finished in 1725. Apart from the main hall, the most significant room is the sala terrena underneath. The grottoes connecting to the garden on the ground floor have fountains with sculptural decoration in the shape of Hercules, water deities, sea monsters and angels which are quite remarkable. The Duchess, who after the death of her first husband married the Tuscan Grand Duke, Gian Gastone III, the last male descendent of the Medici family, ran a costly court at Ploskovice. In the 1730s the French terrace garden was remodelled. A gloriette, shown in its 19th century incarnation, serves as a bellevue. In 1764 the house was altered in Rococo style and in 1773 further building alterations were made to the house and greenhouse in the garden. The composition of the garden was simplified from 1816. During a Neo-Baroque reconstruction from 1850–3 for the abdicated ruler Emperor Ferdinand V the upper floor was raised, and pavilions appeared at the end of the Baroque arcade corridors, as well as a new northern portico. The garden was changed into a landscape park and servants quarters grew up after 1816 on the site of a destroyed earlier house.

Hi Andrea!

THANKS again SO MUCH for doing such a fantastic job on our wedding — it was absolutely perfect (as I’m sure yours was). We just got back from our honeymoon yesterday. Are you back from Greece?

Andrea, thank you again for everything, we are still thinking about our “perfect” wedding day that you helped create.

David and Linda

 

Hi Andrea,

This is the first opportunity I’ve had to write to you since the wedding.

What a wedding! I could have never imagined a more perfect day in my life.

Thank you for being instrumental in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. You are a true master.

After two such wonderful months as we’ve had it was difficult to return back to our normal routines. It has been particularly difficult not to have something on the horizon to look forward to. We cannot thank you enough for everything and of course you should feel free to give any future clients my email address – I’d be more than happy to give them a recommendation and to give you a stellar review!

Could you please send us your mailing address – we’d like to send you a small thank you as a token of our appreciation.

Tell us about your wedding and honeymoon? We’d love to hear all about it!

Also if you have pictures we’d love to see them!

Thank you again for everything,

Linda

Andrea,

we are now home and able to reflect even more on our spectacular Wedding day in Prague.

We will always be grateful to you for not only pulling this together in record time, but also for the incredible coordination of all details  that made the event go so smoothly and stress free.

The dinner at La Perle was absolutely amazing, and a great finish to the day.

We look forward to receiveing soon news that the package is on its way . In the emantime, if I could ask one more request: perhaps the photographer has some existing photos of the dancing building exterior as well as the view from the terrace of La Perle that could be included with our wedding photos or emailed as jpg attachments? It would be nice to capture the venue that completed our special day.

In the event you have potential clients who request reference, we would be grateful to share our experiences.

With best regards,

Kathryn

Dear Andrea,

Fantastic to hear from you! We hope you and your business are well.  Your services were fantastic and the best decision, other than getting married, we made. You are the best!  But, I still awake during the night with images of 808 and hundreds of people. What does that mean??

Yes, we are still the same and enjoying wedded bliss.  Rome was fun and we await even more photos from the Hilton.

Peter The Enforcer had a great bike trip to Vienna but did not find love. Boo.

Our Summer has kicked in to high gear with wonderful weather. I can send you some images if you like.

All the best,

Gary & Kathryn
