“Cactus Collective was incredibly responsive from the very beginning. It was the reason I went with them versus other companies in the area. From the moment of contact, every person on the team I communicated with was helpful, quick to respond, and super friendly. They took care of nearly everything and made the process of planning a wedding from another state easy breezy.”
