10/10 I would hire her again!
If you’re debating if you need a coordinator or not, let me help you.. the answer is YES and Tracy is hands down THE BEST. As someone who spent a good portion of my career in the event industry, I am very particular. Tracy meticulously handled everything detail. Together, we built out a day-of timeline and I felt so at ease, she hadall my ducks in a row! I didn’t worry about a thing. Tracy’s cool calm nature is exactly what every bride needs on their big day, and she’s so incredibly organized; I truly couldn’t have done it without her! Tracy’s communication is through, she followed up when something slipped my mind, and quickly answered my texts with random last minute questions - just amazing, she truly cares about her clients and loves what she does. 10/10.. I would hire her again in a heart beat!Sent on 10/13/2019

Best Decision We Made With Wedding Planning
Tracy was instrumental in making our wedding a fairytale. From communicating with us leading up to the wedding, to executing the rehearsal and wedding day with military precision, to pulling off some last minute fire-drills and helping me simply enjoy the day with zero worries, Tracy was the best decision we made during the wedding planning process! A lot of people wonder if they need a venue coordinator AND a day-of/month-of coordinator, and let this review convince you, yes you do! If you value keeping calm and having help from a pro when something inevitably doesn't go as planned, (believe me, it will), you'll want someone that can handle all of the moving pieces that come with a wedding, vs. just someone who deals with the venue (catering, etc.). I had ordered a seating chart from Etsy and it just never showed up, and was a big part of the flow (and look) of the event. With less than 48 hours to mitigate, Tracy stepped up and got us something very similar to what we had custom-made, and it was gorgeous and it's like the issue never happened! Tracy and her team are true professionals, and honestly we couldn't recommend her enough. We're excited to see her business grow!Sent on 07/09/2019

Absolutely worth it
Do not hesitate to hire Tracy and her team for your wedding. We had our wedding at a non traditional venue in Grosse Pointe so Tracy, Brittany, and their team had a task in store for the lead up and day of my wedding. I worked with Tracy in the day-of coordinator capacity and from the first call to the day after she was on top of everything. Worrying is my #1 past time and I cannot emphasize enough how much of it relief it was to have her and her team with me. Even during the limo ride up to the ceremony where I could have been panicking I wasn’t because I knew she’d be on top of everything (and she was). She alleviated all of my wedding worries because she’s organized, personable, available, and, most importantly, gets stuff done. My guests during and after have complimented the work her and her team had done. My wedding would not have been the success and joy it was without her and her team.Sent on 06/22/2019
