Can't recommend highly enough - made the wedding perfect

We had a 150 person wedding in rural Virginia, which we were organsing from distance with help from family (we live overseas, with only a couple of trips back in the year leading up to the wedding).

We were initially thinking about not getting a coordinator to cut costs, but in the end it was one of our best pre-wedding decisions to hire Leah and the team at Another Wild Hare as day-of coordinators. Leah was professional, thorough, friendly and communicative. She really worked with our preferences, thought through her recommendations, and truly went above and beyond for us. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Some examples of how excellent they were and how they made our wedding look amazing and run smoothly:

- My wife had a strong vision of what she wanted in terms of florals and design for the venue. Leah did an excellent job not only bringing that to life, but adding to it in ways that we really loved. Leah was very good in explaining to us what would look and and, importantly, what wouldn't - and coming up with alternatives that were in our budget. She really knew what she was doing.

- I'm an Australian, and Leah went the extra mile in giving us a personal touch. In her flower arrangements (which her amazing team did all on site!) she sourced a range of fantastic Australian greenery. It was an fantastic surprise that we were not expecting!

- The team identified and handled a number of significant problems and mistakes before, during and after the wedding day (both our mistakes and others). Leah excellently handled under-performance by one of our other vendors, both on the day and helping us manage the follow up. We didn't notice there was a problem until we debriefed with Leah - they covered it seamlessly.

I really recommend Another Wild Hare as wedding coordinators. We couldn't be happier, and they really made our wedding better than it would have been. Thanks Leah and team!

If you are even slightly considering hiring Leah for your event, DO IT! We literally could not have had the wedding of our dreams if it hadn't been for her! She is incredibly organized, assertive, and on top of everything. She had great ideas and suggestions, listened to everything we wanted and made it happen, and seamlessly moved throughout the wedding day tying up loose ends, smoothing out little kinks, and making sure we were taken care of. Again, if you are even considering hiring someone for your event, JUST HIRE LEAH!

Leah was our day of coordinator and I can't sing her praises enough! I met with her two weeks before our wedding and she helped to better flush out and detail our timeline, offered numerous suggestions based on years of experience, resolved issues before they became a problem, and gave me such a great sense of confidence. She was patient and listened to what we wanted and helped to create and achieve that vision. On the day of, I only saw Leah as she organized us to walk down the aisle - she was behind the scenes making sure things ran smoothly, seating guests who didn't RSVP, and resolving with a crisis I didn't even know we had until after the wedding! (Everyone was ok!) She helped to create a wedding day where I could be present, live in the moment, and enjoy the first hours of being a Mrs. surrounded by my favorite people. I can't thank her enough for providing that sense of comfort in knowing that all would be well. I highly recommend her as a wedding planner and/or day of coordinator!

I very much enjoyed working with Leah. She was both organized and friendly despite complex (and probably stressful) circumstances, and I recommend her highly.
