Marie was the highlight of our wedding reception! Our guests are still talking about how unique her presence was. We left out wedding favors that probably would have been thrown away, in favor of drawings for our guests by Marie, and have no regrets. Our only regret is not finding time to have one drawn of ourselves! Thank you SO much!
