Dear Laura,

GI & I would like to send our gratitude to you & the rest of the Merri-Makers & Ashford Estate staff for bringing our vision to life on our wedding day.

We thank everyone who was involved from the beginning up to the very end of our special day, no matter how minor the role was. You all knew how to make it as stress-free as possible ensuring that we remember to eat, dance and to enjoy our day. I just binge-watched The Crown & I would like to send a shout-out to Taylor & Bethany for making me feel like the Queen of England that day.

We’d also like to share that our family & guests were truly impressed by the event, some of them even saying that at least they get to experience this in their lifetime. They kept on raving about how beautiful the estate was and that the quality of food and service were impeccable. Everyone had fun with the cocktail hour selections and couldn’t say no. Even my brother, who’s a chef & picky-eater, rushed to me during dinner just to say that his steak was wonderfully seasoned & melt-in-your-mouth, cooked to perfection.

It was a wonderful event and we’re glad that it was our wedding day. Happy, we think, isn’t even enough to say how delighted we were to choose & put our trust in Ashford & Merrimakers to celebrate this life event.

Once again, thank you and we will cherish this event always.

Much love,

Jeliz & GI
