- Wedding: July 2014
@NYCtoCHS Hi! We are using Francesca from Pure Luxe Bride. She is great and came highly recommended from several vendors. She helped us choose our other vendors based on people she knows do a great job, as we are out of town as well. We aren’t getting married until next June so we have not done a whole lot with PPHG except reserve the venue. We are going down in October to set out menu, etc. Feel free to PM me if you have any other specific questions I can try and help with!
