    Kolena was perfect!

    Kolena was the perfect wedding coordinator. From the very first conversation I had with her, I felt like she treated me more like a friend than a client. In our initial meeting with us, she walked through every aspect of our wedding to get an understanding of our vision. Because I wanted to do DIY centerpieces, Kolena suggested ways I could achieve the look I was going for, and even offered to let us borrow the set of vases that she had handy.

    Throughout the time leading up to our wedding, she was very responsive, organized, and paid attention to all the details regarding what we wanted. Because of her expansive wedding knowledge, she would often ask questions about things that we had not even considered. She even helped review the event order from our venue and raised issues that the venue had missed. Kolena also created an extremely detailed day-of timeline, which she communicated effectively to all of our vendors.

    On the day of the wedding, she literally handled everything. She helped set up the DIY centerpieces, coordinated the arrivals of all of our vendors, and was able to keep everyone right on schedule for the entire night, which I thought was a miracle (most weddings I’ve attended tend to run late). I think this also speaks to Kolena’s extremely keen knowledge of weddings and her ability to schedule things accurately.

    At the end of the night, Kolena gathered everything we wanted to save from our wedding (like the guest book, gifts, marriage license (!), etc.) and made sure it was safely in our suite. We were able to enjoy our wedding stress-free because Kolena made sure that she had everything under control. In fact, Kolena did not bother us with any wedding-related issues the entire night.

    Overall, Kolena was professional, flexible, and very easy to work with. I felt like she really cared about us and approached our wedding that way. I cannot recommend Blue Sapphire Events enough. We feel very lucky to have found Kolena to be our wedding coordinator and cannot thank her enough for her tireless work, attention to detail, and calm demeanor that made our wedding go so smoothly. We could not have achieved the wedding we wanted without her. Thank you Kolena for everything!!

    Audrey, this review literally brought me to tears! I am so thankful to have met you and John. You were so fun to work with and I loved getting to know you both individually and as a couple. I am so honored that you all put your faith in me to help you have the wedding you had always dreamed. It truly was a perfect night for the most perfect couple! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness and success!

    Thanks a million!

    Kolena was so easy to work with! We would have been completely lost on the content of our ceremony but she sat down with us and gave us a workbook to pick and choose from in order to create a ceremony that represented us. We also changed our wedding plans half way through the planning process and she was completely flexible and adaptable to the switches. We were also very grateful for the little goodie bags of items that she put together for our guests so that they would be comfortable in the heat. Thank you Kolena for making our wedding day a breeze.
