    Coordinator

    If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would! Jana and her team are simply incredible!! Jana went above and beyond creating my dream wedding.
    Not only was every detail thought out and beautiful, thanks to her and her incredible team, postponing due to COVID felt easy! She walked me thru postponing, managed all the changing contracts and vendors and navigated the ever changing rules and regulations that came with new COVID guidelines. I could not have had my absolutely perfect wedding without her and her team!! The day turned out to be everything I could have ever wanted and more.
    And not only did she create my perfect day, she was AMAZING on my actually wedding day for any and every need my guests or I had. I cannot speak highly enough of them. Most guests leave a wedding complementing you on food or DJ, my guests raved about my incredible coordinators. I joke with my husband that I’d plan another wedding, just to continue to work with Jana and the design a dream team!

    Amazing team! Made my wedding so much fun and everything I had imagined it was!

    Jana and her team at Design a Dream Events were BEYOND amazing in the events leading up to and on my wedding day. I am forever grateful for them. Especially during such a difficult time to plan a wedding, Jana and her team were so flexible and always answered me immediately whether it via email, phone call, etc. When I decided to still have my wedding despite COVID and with a very small guest count, I was so overwhelmed with how to make my original plans carry over into something I would still love. Jana helped me essentially re-plan and re-organize my entire wedding and took so much stress off of my plate. In addition, all of my vendors knew her so well that she was always able to help me find deals and recommend the best people whether it be flowers, music, etc. On the day of my wedding, Jana and her team literally took care of EVERYTHING. I was expecting to be super busy the day of, but I had so much fun because Jana handled everything for me. From set up to the event and reception and everything in between, they made sure everything went perfectly. Her team always got me and my (now) husband where we needed to be (ensuring we got to do everything we had planned) and made sure we had anything we needed all day long. I COULD NOT RECOMMEND HER MORE!

They laughed, they cried and oh man did they party but, not once did they worry.
