Please share a recent testimonial from a happy client!

"Nikeva and her team are simply the best! From the moment we first met with Nikeva, she was genuine, sweet and cared about the things we wanted on our wedding day. Nikeva went above and beyond on our wedding day and throughout the entire wedding planning process. She is there every step of the way, meeting with vendors, following up with vendors, dress fittings, etc. You name, it she’s there. On the day of our wedding my husband and I didn’t have to think about anything. Nikeva and her team had it all under control, and because of them the day went by smoothly. There were things that went wrong on our wedding day that neither my husband and I, or even our guests, even knew it happened. Nikeva and her team did whatever it took to be sure that my husband and I were not stressed out at any time during the day. Nikeva and her team are honest, compassionate, trustworthy, supportive and so much more! I just love them all! I could go on and on about how great this company is. Look no further and book SouthWind Events for your wedding day. You will not be disappointed." --Ciara B.
