Some couples wonder if they really need to hire a Day-Of Wedding Coordinator. When the planning first begins, it is common to think, "I can just ask my maid of honor/aunt/mom to help with 'a few little things'". However, 'a few little things' always add up to a lot of things - which can be stressful for the couple as well as their helpers. You want to enjoy your wedding - and you want your guests to enjoy it too! Utilizing the services of a seasoned Day-Of Wedding Coordinator will make your day easier. Applaud Events offers a full variety of day-of services to make all of your details come to life. Your wedding day will be a breeze - all you have to focus on is having a good time.
Applaud Events founder, Aria Gojdics, has shown passion for the event industry since she was a young girl by producing tea parties with her sister and directing performances put on by the neighborhood kids.
Aria's event planning skills have come a long way since childhood. Her professional experience includes working with CRG Events and Microsoft to coordinate corporate conferences, product launches, tradeshows and parties. But weddings have always been her favorite!
After Aria planned her own wedding, she realized even more what it takes to plan a successful day. Aria will show the same dedication to your wedding as if it was her own. She is reliably calm under pressure and remarkably attentive to the smallest details. Aria is a professional individual with plenty of planning experience along with a thorough, patient and enthusiastic demeanor.

Most of all, she wants for you and your guests to experience a memorable day of love and joy!
