The wedding was absolutely wonderful, please extend our appreciation to the Pure Joy staff.

You guys did an incredible job! We went to another wedding in Malibu the weekend after getting back from our honeymoon- they didn’t have enough heaters, the dance floor was too small and they hadn’t set up the buffet to accommodate everyone :-/ It really shone a light on how professional and well-prepared you and your team is. We were so grateful ours went off without a hitch. Thank you again:)
