Mother of the Bride

From the first consultation to the wedding day. Alison showed so much enthusiasm for my daughter鈥檚 ideas and helped us have a flawless experience. From a MOB perspective, Alison鈥檚 help was invaluable. Alison offered suggestions and advice but always put my daughter鈥檚 vision first. Her relationships with and ability to cooperatively work with all vendors was far and away more exceptional than previous experiences with event planners. This is such a critical element and once the initial contracts were made, I never had to worry about coordinating all of the pieces again. Alison is organized beyond compare- always reminding us of deadlines and important timeframes. More important than all of her wedding planning prowess, is Alison鈥檚 positive and kind nature. That was so important to us because we wanted a wedding planner who would support our ideas and be a partner in the process. We wanted a strong person who was not afraid to voice her opinion but one who also understood how excited we were to be involved in every detail of the process. It can be a fine line and Alison walked that fine line with grace and finesse! . Alison was truly as invested in my daughters wedding as I was. Finally, the wedding day was on time, with transportation arriving when they should and with every detail executed to perfection. Anytime I worried about the next thing that was supposed to happen, Alison was one step ahead. I cannot recommend Alison and her team more highly!

Best coordination service out there!

Designed and Detailed saved my life! I was hesitant about booking a wedding coordinator and thought I could do it all myself and boy was I wrong! Alison was my lead coordinator and did so much behind the scenes and busy work I do not know I could have managed without her. She was always so sweet to take on new tasks and her bubbly personality kept my wedding energy up the entire time! I would recommend them to anyone and would hire them over and over. 500000/10!
