Reviews about RDC...

If you are planning an event you simply cannot work with a better, kinder, more organized team than the one you will find at RDC. Becky Frost has an attention to detail that would make Martha Stewart proud. All the staff works so hard to help you achieve your goals, but they do it with such warmth, humor and grace–– it never feels like work at all.
