Cannot recommend Heather enough: hire her.
We can't say enough good things about Heather and the team at Defining Moments. She took care of everything (including things she certainly didn't need to) to make sure our planning experience was seamless, enjoyable and stress-free. I am a perfectionist, extremely detail oriented, and usually beat people to an email or thought.... Heather is the only person I've ever met that beat me every single time! She was realistic and truthful if she thought someone would be out of budget for us, has so much experience to understand what's really going to matter not only to you but your guests at the end of the day, and provided recommendations for work arounds for things I would have never thought of. In short, HIRE HER. It will be the best decision of your wedding (other than saying I Do) thank you make!Sent on 05/10/2019

Can Heather PLEASE come run my entire life?!
I assure you our day would not have been as seamless and easy as it was without Heather and the team at Defining Moments!Sent on 11/11/2019
From our very first call, Heather was able to tell us what time the sun would be setting on our wedding day (well over a year out!) so that we could start locking in times for the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. She was incredibly mindful of our budget and made thoughtful recommendations on which vendors to use based on budget, past experience and quality of service.
If anything went wrong the day of the wedding, we had no idea--which is exactly how it should be--and I am sure this is largely in part to Heather's organization, professionalism and attention to detail. She truly thinks of everything--like groomsmen wearing sunglasses while ushering but not during the ceremony, reminding everyone to not chew gum and bringing individual copies of the run of show to the rehearsal, with each bridesmaid's hair and make-up time highlighted on their copy.
I could go on and on about Heather and her team, but just know you will not regret choosing Defining Moments to coordinate your wedding day!

Meredith & Matthew's PERFECT Wedding
From our first introductory conversation with Heather we felt assured our wedding would be fabulous! Heather is beyond thoughtful, professional, kind, and responsive, and she helped us through every step of the process. Despite not being local (live in NYC and planning a wedding in FL), the entire process felt seamless and everything was executed with perfection. Heather also provided wonderful insights and recommendations that perfectly complemented our own ideas for venue design/decor, food, beverages, etc. She’s extremely timely regarding when decisions that needed to be made, when vendors needed to be paid, and she even sent us a schedule with reminders. We could not be more grateful for Heather’s help in going above and beyond to make our wedding day flawless and truly the happiest, most special and fun day of our lives! THANK YOU for all of your support, kindness and hard work!Sent on 05/13/2020
I have had the opportunity to work with Heather a couple of times over the summer and her brides have been nothing but pleased and overjoyed with her level of service and commitment to them. I would recommend Defining Moments.
