With the two wonderful people we hired, four hands really morphed into an unlimited number of helping hands.
We had an upcoming wedding reception just a few days away and realized we needed help. During my first call to Zandra (the owner), I was immediately put at ease by her kindness and keen interest in what I needed, and so I booked her services. On the phone, I could already sense she had a good balance of being easy-going and enjoyable to work with while also being appropriately attentive to every detail. There is no doubt in my or my wife's minds that hiring Zandra and her associate Michael was the absolute best decision I made with regard to our wedding reception. Even before I had booked her, she made many suggestions on items we should purchase and ways we should execute our party. I appreciated her care and knew I wanted to move forward with her. On the day of the event, before their arrival, things were getting chaotic and it was clear we were going to run up against the "deadline" of the event start time. But that all changed once Unlimited Helping Hands arrived. Zandra and Michael arrived promptly, and it was clear that they were ready to work hard. And that is an understatement. Because of how busy everything was before they arrived, I wasn't able to properly greet Zandra or Michael, but they were very understanding and immediately asked what they could do to help. Not wasting a second, they set to work and not only demonstrated an understanding of how to execute what we wanted in the best fashion, but they also built in some flexibility that was absolutely key to the event's success when my wife and I needed to switch the order of the program. There were a multitude of changes that came up as well as anxiety-borne concerns, and each time, they genuinely smiled and put us at ease, finding sometimes seemingly miraculous ways to make things happen. And even if they were busy with one task and we asked them to divert their attention to another, they always did so with a smile. For instance, when I could not affix my boutonniere and was sweating because we had to start pictures just moments later, although nobody else was able to do it, Michael solved the problem and I was all set. (I wouldn't have blamed him if he hadn't been able to - it was quite a difficult boutonniere - but his helpfulness and kind way of interaction was truly appreciated.)
Throughout the event, it was clear that "Unlimited Helping Hands" was the most fitting name that could have been conceived for this business, and we cannot thank Zandra and Michael enough for what they did for us. They are true partners in an event, not only "doing their job" (which of course they do) but also caring as though it was their own event and going not only above and beyond but "above and way beyond." My wife and I could not stop telling each other how integral they were to what became an amazing reception. Without any reservations, I give them my highest possible recommendation.
