    Top Notch Wedding Day Help

    Heather is awesome! She was a great help with everything on the day of the wedding. She took charge and we didn't have to worry about anything. Leading up to the wedding she was a great help getting in contact with all our vendors to make sure everything was set for the wedding day. She was also a great help when our bakery closed down 4 weeks before the wedding. Whenever we had a question she was really quick to respond and offer advice and solutions.

    Working with you both was so much fun! And, the rain stayed away so we got in the rooftop ceremony. Win. Win!

    We'd choose Bona Fide again in a heartbeat

    We are so grateful to Heather for the care and expertise that she brought to our wedding planning process. My fiance and I were planning a wedding amidst a busy year- graduate school, starting new jobs, moving, etc.!- and Heather helped keep us on track as we got closer and closer to the big day. One of the things I've appreciated most about Heather is that she's straight with you- she has the imagination and sense of fun to help you dream up a beautiful, joyful event, but she'll also be frank and candid with you about budget, what's going to work best, what you have to have and what you can go light on, etc. On the day-of we were able to relax knowing that Heather really understood our vision and was behind the scenes working with our various vendors and making everything run smoothly. We would recommend Heather and Bona Fide events in a heartbeat for weddings and other events.

    Best Wedding Decision Made

    People kept asking ‘aren’t you stressed/busy/overwhelmed with the upcoming wedding?’ And I kept wondering why they were asking. Between Heather (and my amazing daughter) everything was under control. Heather’s professionalism, attention to detail, connections and calmness during the months leading to the event helped us enjoy the process. She completely worked with the bridal couple to accommodate their choice of vendors, anticipated problems before they arose, and was calm and capable at all times.
