WOW!!!!! Where do I even start to tell you how much I appreciate all of your services. The wedding was beautiful and unforgettable. You all did a superb job and could not have ask for anything more. It was way more than I had ever anticipated or even ask for. I know that you deal with this on a daily basis but, “Stress Free” it was. I highly recommend this avenue to anyone (but just a little cooler weather) or it just could have been me knowing that my little girl was grown and getting married.

Please tell the lady with the doves it was excellent and unexpected could not have surprised her anymore than when she handed her the lovely dove. I really do appreciate that.

The officiant/minister did a lovely and very sweet short but meaningful ceremony .The wording that you suggested fit in perfect and her father and I liked it a lot better.

Lisa was great and thank for having the champagne cold and taking care of Preston.

What more can I say that you gave our a daughter a “Perfect Wedding” that she is still talking about and will for years. Everyone here has asked and I just say “it was perfect.”

Thanks again for all you hard work. If ever again in the area we will call and check up on everyone.

Thank you, thank you thank you.

Much love too,

Marilyn Craig, mother of the bride

Princess Beach - August 3, 2011

We were all so happy and pleased with the wedding and reception. I feel like I’m still in a bubble of wedding happiness. Several people told us it was the best wedding and reception they had ever attended. Your calm demeanor certainly helped when we weren’t certain we would get to have it on the beach. Collin and Sam were full of praise for you, too.

Thank you ever so much. Collin said that he could tell it wasn’t just a job for you, that you really loved it.

Take care and God bless.

I just wanted to thank you all for the service this last weekend. Father Ken was wonderful and the ceremony was great. Thank you for making our wedding into the stress free and memorable experience we were hoping for. We will be sure to recommend you in the future.

Thank you, Stacy for everything. The ceremony was beautiful. We loved the flowers, and could not believe how big the roses were. And the cake was wonderful. It could not have looked any prettier or tasted any better. Everything ran smoothly and the staff did a great job.

Sincerely,

Michelle Doss, mother of the bride

Andrew and Cassie Corbitt, Shores at Crystal Beach - June 11, 2011

My husband and I would like to thank you for your kindness and the special love you gave our wedding. You made our wedding like a fairy tale and we are still trying to snap out of the dream. We were still in Florida until the end of the week and decided to go back to the wedding site just to relive the moment of happiness, tears and joy that we had on Saturday. I admit we were worried but you took away the fear and made me feel at ease and the comfort set in with laughter from both of us.

Just had to stop having fun long enough to let you know we really appreciate you making our wedding a success.

Thank you, Stacy! I hope things are going great for you guys. We will keep referring! You guys made our day special. We may have to take you up on the pics — we hope to get back down there this summer. I have referred about five couples, I don’t know if they used you or not but I will be happy to refer more. If you want me to do some testimonials for you, tell them to email me. I plan weddings myself, so to be able to just go and have everything set up was like HEAVEN! lol! Miranda and Lindsey are a sweet couple, I went to high school with them both, and I believe that Laura and Jake Wright used you guys, too. They are our best friends. Hope to see you (and the beach) soon. We are long overdue for a vacation!

Edgewater Resort, Miramar Beach - October 9, 2010

FABULOUS, WONDERFUL, and ABSOLUTELY PERFECT……(even with the rain). Those are the words I use to describe our special day on May 27, 2010 in Destin at the Pelican Resort. I want to thank your staff for being so sweet and helpful, a special thanks to Cheri for weathering the storm with us. She is wonderful!

Thanks again for making our day so special!

It was a complete and fabulous joy and experience to work with you and your company!!!! I would not have done it any other way!

Samantha Tharp

Princess Beach - May 14, 2010

I would like to say Thank You for a beautiful wedding. The wedding turned out great. I was a little worried on Friday night with the rain but the weather on Saturday was ok. Both ladies that did the hair and makeup were great — tell them thank you. I know Lauren was a little nervous when she was getting her done but they were great! Lisa was very good at coordinating the ceremony and the setup on the beach was really pretty. I was very pleased with everything.

Terri Hensarling, mother of the bride

Sandestin Beach and Golf Resort™ - May 1, 2010

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that was involved with my wedding on March 20, 2010 at the Breakers in Fort Walton Beach, especially Stacy and Lisa. Our wedding was everything that we could have hoped for and you guys made that possible (only if we could have had less wind, LOL). I have been a part of many weddings before (bridesmaid many times, maid of honor 3 times, and multiple of just being a guest) and I don’t believe any bride was so relaxed and calm on their wedding day as I was, or even weeks to months before. You really made it so easy for me. My husband and family was quite surprised of how well everything went. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

If anyone needs a confirmation of how wonderful your services was, please give them my email address tln10281@aol.com. I know it helped make my decision after speaking to past clients and I never once regretted my decision.

Thank you again.

Thank you again for making our wedding such a memorable event! Everything turned out better than ever imagined and it’s because of the work you and your staff did.

Thank you!

Dear Stacy, Annette, and Crew,

Thank you all so much for all your help in creating the most spectacular day of mine and my husband’s life! Everything went just as planned! It couldn’t have been better! It was definitely the wedding of our dreams! Even though it was pouring rain throughout the day, I still had faith ya’ll would help make it happen for us. The rain disappeared and the sky opened up just in time! It was meant to happen! We enjoyed every minute of it! I’m so glad I finally got to meet you Stacy! You helped me so much and I was little anxious planning all the way from Louisiana, but you assured me and helped me with great ideas. The beach wedding plan was all new to me, but you made it so simple for me to plan! I loved the photography session you did for us as well! Annette, I wanted to thank you so much for your patience and kindness in helping my family prepare for the wedding. This was their first time in this kind of experience on the beach and you made it fun and relaxed for them especially me and my husband! There is so much I could brag about on the wedding so I’m just going to sum it up and say thank ya’ll so much and God bless! You can use me as a testimonial if you’d like! I’d be happy to spread the word so other couples can have the wedding of their dreams!

Forever I Do Weddings,

A GIANT THANK YOU TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM!!! Working with you was a true pleasure and our wedding was PERFECT! You made all of our wedding dreams come true. I never imagined that having a destination wedding could be so stress free — but you sure made it easy and I never worried about anything.

Stacy,

I wanted to let you know we received the disc with the wedding pictures and thought they were just wonderful. We loved all the different shots you took and want to thank you for doing such a great job. Even though our wedding was very small, it turned out exactly as we had hoped. All we wanted was a beautiful spot on the beach and our children with us; so it was perfect. Thank you and your group for all the help you gave us and giving us a memorable wedding.

Henderson Beach State Park - September 10, 2009

Hi Stacy,

Just wanted to let you know everything went great! The boat was perfect! The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, the cake was beautiful and the food — terrific! The photographer and videographer were excellent. What a great job! Ronnie (father of the bride) was released from the hospital on Wednesday, then we were off to Destin on Thursday. This weekend was all about making memories. With your help, these are definitely ones we will treasure forever. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done. We will definitely recommend you to anyone thinking of having a wedding like ours.

Northwest Florida Better Business Bureau,

I would like to inform you of what a great company Forever I Do Weddings is! They did a wonderful job for my daughter’s wedding. They made it such a special day for all of us. Their kindness and professionalism is something Fort Walton Beach should be very proud of. We are from Kentucky and when I had to put my daughter’s wedding in someone else’s hands it was very scary for us. They stayed in touch with me from the time we booked the wedding in October 2008 until the day of the wedding (June 27, 2009). I had several questions throughout the time frame and they were very informative and very patient with all my questions. I could go on forever on how kind everyone was to me during this time.

Hats off to everyone there!!!

Forever I Do Weddings,

WOW! Thank you so much for the stress-less wedding day. I can’t believe it’s over already!! It was absolutely perfect, we couldn’t have asked for anything better. You were all so helpful in handling all my questions and concerns. The flowers, cake, and food were just perfect. Everything I ever imagined. Our coordinator, Lisa, was sweet and helpful. She bared the heat with us. I just can’t say it enough — EVERYTHING was just wonderful. Thanks for all your time and effort and making our day…perfect!

Princess Beach then boat charter - June 22, 2009

Hi,

Just wanted to say thank you. Everything went wonderfully. When Meagan and Matt decided on a wedding on the beach I was a bit concerned about doing everything long distance. But Blair and the Hilton’s staff and you all at Forever I Do Weddings made everything so easy. We are glad we found you.

The arbor and flowers added so much to the already beautiful beach. The wedding coordinator was very professional and sweet and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The violinist you hired played beautifully. Fr. Ken made the ceremony feel personal even though they had never met before that day. The DJ kept everyone entertained during the entire reception. Your organization was professional, yet warm and friendly. We will recommend you guys — in fact we already have.

Niece married at Hilton Sandestin - May 30, 2009

Dear Stacy,

We cannot thank you enough for the tremendous job you did for my daughter’s wedding. Not only were you completely professional but you were also so very thoughtful in all you did for Sara and Keith! Every portion of our experience was excellent from my first call to try to figure out how to do a beach wedding to the very last picture and the multiple phone calls in between. Thank you for your cheerful attitude, your patience with my less-than-intelligent questions and your gentleness with my daughter. I will recommend you and your team to anyone who asks! Best wishes in all you do!

Our very sincere thanks.

Daughter married at Mainsail Condo - May 29, 2009

Dear Annette,

Thank you for everything — the wedding preparations, ceremony and reception, all went as planned. It was a PERFECT day! I can’t thank you enough for your keen intuition, attention to details, and caring spirit — all great qualities that contributed to an important event in our lives. Mike and I are so grateful.

Dunes of Seagrove - May 16, 2009

Stacy, Katalina, and everyone at Forever I Do,

THANK YOU ALL so much for all your help and assistance in making sure our wedding was absolutely perfect! Planning an out of state wedding isn’t always easy and we searched a while for a wedding planner that would fit our needs. We knew from the beginning that we were in good hands. You were all always so responsive and helpful. You offered suggestions and we always knew what we had to work with. We used you guys for everything — everything that the hotel didn’t provide and we’re so glad we did. The day of the wedding sure didn’t go as planned — we went from having a beautiful beach wedding to a tornado blowing through the area. We knew you guys had a backup plan, so we didn’t worry. Sure we’re upset but Stacy and Katalina made sure despite the weather, our wedding would be one to never forget. We walked in and everything was so perfect. We had so many compliments too.

Thank you all for everything. We are forever grateful and would recommend you to anyone. We appreciate the details and attention — you guys were awesome!

Love, Amie and Jeff Robillard
