    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!

    Hiring Defining Moments will be the best decision you make!

    I cannot imagine not working with Heather and Defining Moments during our wedding planning process. She made the entire process smooth and seamless to the "nth" degree! Every detail was thought of and every question was answered (in advance of us asking). She has strong relationships with ALL of our vendors, which made everything that much easier. Our wedding weekend was everything we dreamed of and MORE. I truly cannot express how grateful we are for Heather's hard work to make sure that we were able to enjoy all of our wedding events and not worry about the details or execution. All of the work she did in the background did not go unnoticed -- our wedding weekend was perfect in every way. If you are searching for a wedding coordinator who knows all venues in the area, has relationships with the best vendors, and is on top of things in EVERY way, look no further. Heather at Defining Moments is the one for you! Thank you, Heather, for helping us plan a weekend that we'll remember forever.

    Defining Moments by Heather

    I can't say enough good things....
    Heather is a true professional, extremely organized, advocates for the bride and groom for what you want on your wedding making sure it's you're special day. I had multiple people from the wedding party come up and say how fantastic she is. Everything from wedding timeline, details etc is run like a tight ship so there is zero stress. If you want to actually enjoy your wedding planning process, hire Heather.
