Thank you for helping us live our forever day!

My husband and I are so grateful for Mirella and her team! True to the name, there is no way we would have had the memorable day that we had without having worked with An Everlasting Moment.

I first found Mirella after having interviewed a few different wedding planners. I wanted to make sure that I found somebody who was punctual, engaged, professional, could give good perspective and guidance and would plan this wedding no differently than they would plan for their own wedding or their own child's wedding. I found all of that and more in working with Mirella.

I'm actually kind of sad that our wedding is over because if I could continue working with her, I totally would! I always look forward to her Monday morning emails outlining all the things I needed to get done for that week. Working in the tech industry myself, it's so helpful to have that structure and guidance in project management, this way ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks.

It is incredibly difficult to plan a wedding during a global pandemic. It was especially difficult in that during the time we were wedding planning, my brother passed away. At that moment my attention had to shift to funeral planning amongst other things. Mirella hopped right in and began looking for venues for us and getting all the big stuff done so that I could focus on my family. I really am so very grateful for her showing up for me and my family in this way. It is the most thoughtful thing that a perfect stranger could do--we literally had just started working together maybe a week or so before. But she just jumped on in and began emailing and hopping on phone calls with different vendors to ensure that nothing got left by the wayside. It really built so much trust for me. I didn't have to check in to ask her if she had done anything or what she was working on because she made sure to copy me on emails and also kept me in the loop in a way that was comfortable for me.

Throughout the process of planning the wedding, Mirella was just fabulous in all her recommendations. She has so many different vendors that she's worked with in past, so it was so easy for her to share with me guidance and perspective to help us make decisions for our wedding. She also was just so willing to go above and beyond and literally everything that she did and just filling in wherever she was needed!

I'm so so grateful for her and all the work that she and her team did on the day of our wedding. Having a 400+ guest list, and helping to navigate through all the restrictions due to COVID-19, everything that Mirella did was to help us with knowing what options we had. She often worked directly with the vendors without me even having to say anything. She literally just took control and got stuff done.

The day of our wedding was so beautiful! You often wonder if you'll hire somebody who will make you feel as though you don't have to worry about anything on that day except for smiling for pictures, drinking lots of champagne, and partying with friends and family. That's exactly how my wedding day went! She really made everything move so smoothly! And it's no wonder--throughout the entire planning process, Mirella was always happy to hop on zoom calls, come to site visits, hop on phone calls, respond on text messages, respond on email, I'm pretty sure she would have also responded via flight pigeon if necessary! She is just that responsive!!!

I literally NEVER write reviews for anything. But I felt it was so necessary to praise Mirella and just the amazing person that she is. She and her team are just the most wonderful people on planet Earth! I am so, so, so grateful for everything that she has done and her team for really helping to pull off such an amazing day that will always sit in our memory forever and ever. She's not just a wedding planner, she's become part of our family. I hope to use her for planning my baby shower and any other planning needs I have. Thank you so very much An Everlasting Moment. xoxo

I could not speak more highly of an Everlasting Moment. If I could offer one piece of advice to future couples, it might be to discuss the decision making timeline in advance, just in case unexpected travel pops up (like it did for me!). Don't be afraid of getting picky with your vendors - Mirella has plenty of options!

Highly Recommend! Detail-Oriented, Responsive Wedding Coordinator

The team at An Everlasting Moment was a huge help in getting my wife and I prepared for our wedding day and we're so happy with our decision to hire the team.

Initially, I didn't think we needed a wedding planner because we booked all of our major vendors before hiring An Everlasting Moment, but our venue required having a day-of coordinator. Mirella and Lorri were so much more than that and helped ensure everything went as planned.

We could tell that they've done this for years based on their familiarity with our venue and their answers to all of our questions. This put us at ease because we were nervous and stressed thinking about how we would juggle all of the details that come with planning a large wedding.

They kept us on track with weekly assignments, helped organize hotel room blocks, attended the wedding rehearsal and coordinated schedules for the big day with all of our vendors. On the day of, they also worked with all of our vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page, checked on us very regularly for months leading up to our wedding, and were super responsive any time we had questions or concerns.

I highly recommend for those in need of a wedding planner or day-of coordinator. We were so thankful for Mirella and Lorri's services and couldn't speak more highly of them.
