    Day of Wedding Coordinator

    It was awesome working with Karen. I hired her for day of coordination. She was always prompt to appointments and made sure everything was in order the day of my wedding. She contacted the vendors the month of my wedding and made sure they knew when and where to set up at the venue. The day of my wedding went smoothly despite a lot of changes during the week. She is very patient and flexible with all the changes with did during our wedding planning. I am so glad we hired her!! Thank you Karen!
