from the diaries...

"If I could give ScreenDoor Diaries more than 5 stars, I absolutely would!

From our very first meeting, they understood exactly what we had pictured and the feel I was envisioning. Their communication is amazing, and I couldn't have picked better people to completely trust with our day. On the day of the event, there was absolutely nothing to worry about and afterward, everyone wanted to know who made the magic happen!"

"Rachael & Crystal at ScreenDoor Diaries are the best there is!

They took every idea I had for my wedding and transformed them into the most beautiful day I have ever witnessed. Outside of their professionalism, they are two of the kindest women I have ever worked with. They are organized and on top of the wedding planning process. Their floral designs are unmatched and will not let you down.

"I cherish the memories of my wedding planning process with SDD!

Every detail was truly exquisite from the coordination of my vendors throughout the planning process, to the arrangement of the lounge furniture, to all of the beautiful flower and greenery work, our place settings, and their impeccable day-of-coordination. My breath was taken away when we saw the final product of their hard work!
