"Thank you to Chelsea Cottle Moring and Illumination Events Studio.  They planned my daughter's high school graduation party: compiling the RSVP list of 100, coordinating and managing the menu changes with the caterer, decorating before the party, and staying until the end to assist with clean up.  The staff at Illumination Events Studio are professional, efficient and creative.  I look forward to working with them again at future events"

-Deborah Mance, Mother of the Graduate
