Vanessa and Gabby are the BEST!

I am not local to the Baltimore area so I knew I had to find a planner who I could trust and could support me from afar. I found Dailey Forte after doing some research in the planners on the area and am so happy I did! Vanessa and Gabby are a great team and were consistently available when I needed them. They ensured I understood the entire process, timing and provided wonderful referrals for vendors. One thing I also really appreciated was that they allowed me to be myself, focus on what I was looking for but also challenged me to think outside the box on that vision I had for the day, and helped me pick out some really beautiful, unique aspects that ended up making our wedding look better than I could imagine and I would've never chosen for myself. On the actual day of my wedding, Vanessa was a true god send, she helped me remain calm (despite some unexpected rain and last minute change of an outdoor ceremony) and reminded me that she had everything under control but most importantly she ensured that my husband and I were able to actually enjoy the day! I am eternally grateful to Dailey Forte for bringing my vision to life. Vanessa and Gabby, THANK YOU!!!!

If you need a planner in the Baltimore area, go Dailey Forte!!!!

Superb Wedding Planners!

Working with Gabby and Vanessa was a wonderful experience from our first friendly conversation with them through the day of our wedding. They worked with us every step of the way and handled several special requests with ease, including arranging wheelchair transportation for our elderly parents. They were always available via email, text or phone call if we had any questions or concerns. Their recommended vendors (DJ, florist, invitations, officiant, and photographer) provided excellent service at reasonable prices and were easy to work with during the lead up to our wedding day. When there was some confusion about blocking hotel rooms at several different locations they stepped in and took care of the problem for us.

They were always very open to any thoughts or suggestions we had and gave us several ideas and tweaks that we incorporated into the ceremony and reception. Gabby was with us for 10+ hours on our wedding day and made sure we and our families had anything we needed and that everything stayed on schedule along the way. We were able to relax and enjoy our special day thanks to their hard work along the way.

In short, Gabby and Vanessa are simply the best.
