Chester Wedding Planner



"Mrs. Brown, Connie and I still talk about how professional you are at organizing events, just knowing you coordinated our wedding from Chester, Virginia while we live here in North Carolina is so awesome!  We also appreciate that every month for a year you would email us a monthly guideline checklist. But the best part was to see you again on the day of our wedding. Thank you for all you've done by distance and in-persons."

Connie and D.

"Ms. Wanda, we sent this picture to thank you as a family for planning such a wonderful wedding ceremony after we had to cancel the first one due to the storm. My husband and I cant thank you enough for the loving heart and kindness you shown towards my family and friends with the reschedule ceremony. It was quite fun how you had to stage us for our photo shoot. I know it was hard trying to hide the empty seats since I had less guest :) but you made it look great and effortless. Every picture turned out great. I see why you pick the name Special Moments Professional Photography & Videography.
