I didn't want to be a ...
I didn't want to be a Bridezilla so it was now up to Teresa and her staff to make my dream wedding come true.
If I hadn't called Teresa, I know I would have been VERY late for the wedding, I know I would have forgotten about center pieces for the supper tables, first dance song and much more.
Everyone kept telling me that I needed to enjoy and take in everything as we were progressing with the wedding.
I felt that I could not enjoy it until I hired Teresa.
This is when I was able to sit back and enjoy absolutely everything about my wedding.
Every girl imagines her dream wedding and my wedding was over and above what I had ever imagined and hoped for thanks to Teresa.

Dana and Craig
Planning a wedding is no little feat, and we were somewhat worried to plan one so far away.
Our resort suggested that we get in touch with Teresa
to help out with the planning, and we couldn't have been more thrilled.

Our wedding at Point Grace could ...
Our wedding at Point Grace could not possibly have been such a tremendous success without Teresa and her extensive knowledge and expertise regarding the vendors and customs of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
Although she was exceptional in many ways, two contributions really exceeded our expectations.
Teresa was extremely thorough with all of the details (from making sure all sixty of the guests and all of the wedding vendors arrived on time for the ceremony to passing out disposable cameras to the children during the cocktail hour).
She also displayed unwavering loyalty to us and our families throughout the planning process.
Whether it was negotiating a fair price with a vendor or rearranging the decorations to be flexible for inclement weather, Teresa did not falter.
She even retrieved her personal CD player and speakers so our friends and family could continue the party after the band had finished!
Additionally, her decorations were spectacular.
From what seemed like brief decor discussions, she took the romantic setting of Grace's Cottage and personalized it with our flowers and color scheme in a way that suited my tastes perfectly.
We've heard nothing but rave reviews of our wedding since we got home, and it certainly wouldn't have come together like it did without her behind the scenes.

I had the BEST experience planning our wedding with Teresa
and my only wish is she

to all my friends.
Both our families and all of our friends still talk about how incredible she
was and how she
cared and looked after each and every guest entirely!
If anyone gets married in Turks and Caicos and does not use Teresa
they are crazy!
The Royal West Indies
, the hotel Teresa
recommended for us was exactly what we hoped it would be.

Thank you Teresa
for giving us our dream wedding.
