 If you have any concerns about how your wedding day at Darby Farm will be, DON’T! In my ten years of experience I have never met a planning team like Prodigy Events and Weddings. Cindy and I instantly bonded over our calls to help our bride and groom and  let me tell you, she loves what she does and she is great at it. Having her team support on your wedding day is what every couple needs in their wedding planning life. 

Right as the bride was about to walk down the aisle a tornado watch was issued, and the rain started pouring down. In under 15 min Cindy and her AMAZING team sprung into action flipping the reception room to make a beautiful ceremony space.

Due to them having several options for arches they were able to nearly duplicate the now wet wedding arch, with a dry and beautiful one, without ever leaving the building, her team shifted tables, guided guests, moved florals, and repositioned the bride without anyone even knowing/ seeing her.

My calls with their team prior to the wedding was so amazing, and I felt so heard as a vendor. It was so special. I am so excited to come back to @darbyfarmfl and extra excited to work with the @prodigyeventplanning team again!
