    Heather the Hero!

    Heather, the owner of Bona Fide Events, is simply wonderful. SUPER organized and great about keeping you on track/schedule with deadlines both hard and soft (such as -- you really should get your preliminary rental order in X months early to make sure they don't run out of what you want for your wedding date -- things that I never would've thought of doing so far out!) She is also very knowledgeable and connected, and even though we hired her to be more of a "day-of" coordinator, she was more than happy to help us find vendors and options for things like pipe & drape that fit our finite budget. When our Oct 2020 wedding had to get pushed a year due to Covid, she was once again helpful and flexible, making sure we checked all the boxes to postpone our big day without incident. Having her on our team has truly allowed me to sleep better at night - both before and during the pandemic!

    Thank you for the wonderful review, Kathryn! The past year has been a year like no other. Being flexible and helpful with reschedules became a part of my skill set that I could have never imagined. Despite the challenges, we will get this wedding celebration in, and it WILL be a party for you, Nik, and all of your friends and family. Count on it!

    Full Service Wedding Planner

    Heather Thomas was an absolute god send for my mom and me during planning my wedding. As a wedding professional myself, I had a tendency to get too involved in the details that were stressing me out, and she was able to gently pull me back and made the entire process not only seamless and stress-free, but fun and enjoyable. She charmed my mom with her warm personality and ability to tame her frazzled daughter!
