Dream Nantucket Wedding
Handy + Dallaire gave me the wedding of my dreams. They are friendly, responsive, professional, and experienced. No request was too big or too small. The day of I didn't worry about a single thing, because I knew I had the dream team working behind the scenes. I recommend them wholeheartedly and couldn't be happier with my experience.Sent on 08/16/2019

Best wedding Planner ever!
OMG – As FOB and MOB, don’t even know where to begin. If you are planning a wedding on Nantucket and are considering whether to use a wedding planner or not. The answer is simply yes and the event planner must be Handy & Dallaire Events. They handled every little detail with a professionalism rarely seen today and they do so in the background to make sure the wedding is perfect for the bride and her family. This includes helping with dinner reservations, package pickup and drop off and re arranging the beach planned ceremony within minutes during a sea squall hailstorm. As horrible as that sounds the bride loved her ceremony and wouldn’t have it any other way. This is a gigantic testament to the Handy & Dallaire team. On a scale of 1 to 10, we would rank them as a 15!!!Sent on 06/26/2019

Best day of our lives!
David, Donald and Katie were the absolute dream team to work with for our beach wedding in Nantucket! We knew the day was going to be beautiful because of their careful planning and attention to detail, but what we couldn’t have known was how they would jump in to make sure everything still went flawlessly despite the CRAZY storm that passed through on the big day and dashed our plans A and B for an outdoor ceremony on the beach. You can imagine a surprise storm being every bride’s worst nightmare (it wasn’t even on the weather radar until about an hour before the ceremony was supposed to take place!), but when we had to make the decision to move the ceremony inside, I felt SO prepared and calm. I knew our amazing HandyDallaire team would make sure everything was still breathtaking.Sent on 06/29/2019
They whisked me away to wait for the indoor ceremony, and immediately got to work with the rest of the venue staff, running around saving chairs and flowers from the rain, and setting up the most beautiful and intimate ceremony in the hotel, all while making sure our guests were happy and up to date on the change of plans. And I didn’t have to worry about a single thing! From that moment on, they made sure the rest of the night went FLAWLESSLY, and we were able to enjoy the best day of our lives to the fullest. I can’t tell you how many of our family and friends commented that it was the most beautiful and well-planned wedding they’ve ever been to.
We are so happy with our wedding and hope to come back to the island and celebrate many anniversaries and more with HandyDallaire. They were easy to work with, have a great eye for design, and strong relationships with all the best vendors on the island. They are truly the best wedding planners, support systems, and party starters. We can’t thank them enough!!!
David does a phenomenal job from my standpoint as a photographer. Highly Highly recommended!!!
