Dear Donna & New Zealand Dream Weddings Team, Ben & I can not thank you enough for making our wedding perfect. Living in the States we were worried about how everything would fall into plan. You took that stress away and made everything so easy for us. Perfect is the one word that we can describe about our wedding and honeymoon in NZ. Thank you all for making our dream come true. Ben & Sally (USA)
