Want to know what it's like to work with Carrara? Here are just a few reviews from happy clients!
"Carrara belly danced at my wedding on 5/23/15 - I thought this entertainment would be really unique for our wedding, especially since my husband is Indian, and we wanted some Indian influence in the wedding. When I first thought of the idea, I reviewed the extensive information she supplied on her own personal site (plus other wedding reviews). That being said, I knew I wanted her as our entertainer before I even called her. When I spoke with her during our initial appointment, her professionalism, energetic demeanor, and attention to detail told me I made the right decision. She really wanted to focus on what my husband and I wanted, asked what props we wanted her to use during the performance, what our colors were (so she would coordinate), and what Indian influence we wanted in her dancing. She made the entire process easy, and communicated with me up through the big day. During the reception, people were highly entertained, and I love how she brought some of the guests up to dance on the floor - they told me afterwards how much fun it was! After her performance, she even stayed for a few minutes to congratulate my husband and me, which was a sincere, personal touch. I would highly recommend Carrara!" - Katie P. (via WeddingWire)
"From planning to performance, Carrara Nour was an absolute joy to work with. Carrara came recommended to me by a few of my other vendors and I decided to look her up. After a brief internet search, I came across her website and loved what I saw. I sent her an email inquiring to her availability for my wedding day and she responded very quickly. We set up a phone meeting to discuss show ideas and I immediately booked her for my wedding. Carrara and I discussed every little detail from music to timeline and from costumes to props. She had so many amazing ideas that I ended up booking her for two sets, one during the cocktail hour and another during the reception. My guests are still raving about her performance a full month later! Carrara really pulled out all the stops with her show: Wings of Isis, beautiful feather fans, a costume change and the added treat of a tray of gorgeous candles that she balanced perfectly on her head. She was even able to get some of the guests up on their feet dancing the night away! I've had two guests ask where they can take classes to learn how to move the way Carrara moves and a few of the children present were completely mesmerized by her. Carrara is one of the best wedding vendors I've had the pleasure of working with. Her professionalism, creativity and overall wonderful attitude was just the perfect addition to my big day. Thank you SO MUCH Carrara for making our day extra special and shimmying it up on the dance floor with my guests and I!!!" - Alexandra L. (via WeddingWire)
"Carrara is one of the most fun and unique individuals that I have had the pleasure of meeting....Her surprise dance left my guests with the craving of more dancing. She really helped to get everyone up and moving on the dance floor. The surprise was talked about long after her show ended, too. The added element of entertainment helped to make our wedding really reflect us as she took the time to personalize everything for us with regard to our cultures and relationship. Carrara is truly an artist in high heels! I am going to hire her for every party I throw here on out!!" - Tiffany R. (via WeddingWire)
