Logistical lifesaver

We highly recommend having a coordinator to help with day-of logistics. As a couple, we鈥檙e both very good planners. We felt confident that when it came to planning our perfect wedding, we had it all under control. However, we also knew that we wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the day as it was happening, so hiring a coordinator was a no-brainer for us. Designed & Detailed, specifically our coordinator Erin, was an excellent choice. In the months/weeks leading up to the wedding, we were so happy to have a partner who really knew what they were doing to ensure no detail was unaccounted for. And when we had a hiccup that was out of our control on our wedding day Erin kept her cool and helped us stay calm as the situation was resolved. No one else ever noticed anything went wrong. Thank you so much for everything, Erin!

Spring 2024 Wedding!

We are so grateful for the support we received from Designed & Detailed. Erin was our coordinator from the beginning & we couldn't have pulled off our dream wedding without her help! Erin the team laid a foundation for us to successfully host a wedding and I can confidently say, planning a wedding is no small feat.

Erin provided us with endless amounts of insight and knowledge about the industry and we're so grateful for all her expertise!

Erin & Cydnei really showed up on the day and they both had calm, cool & collected energy which means a lot when weddings can be already emotional and stressful.

We truly didn't comprehend the caliber of wedding we were hosting and Erin & Cydnei were absolute rockstars throughout the day!

Stress free Wedding planning experience!

Working with Designed & Detailed was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding. During the initial consultation call with Alison, we felt reassured that we would be genuinely supported throughout the process. There is no way our wedding day would have gone as smoothly without our lead planner, Katie. Throughout the 3 months leading up to our wedding, Kate was communication with us and our other vendors on a regular basis to refine the day of timeline and coordinate day of setup. She brought up questions that we had not considered and presented ideas that we loved. Katie鈥檚 help at the rehearsal dinner was incredibly beneficial, especially since none of us had facilitated a ceremony in the past. We appreciated her focus and ability to reel everyone in. Her communication and rapport with the other vendors was so important to us and something we recognized throughout the planning process. On the day of, Katie and Jenna (our assistant coordinator) collaborated so well with our DJ and photographer to ensure the best day. Everything went perfectly and better than we could have dreamed. Her communication with us and support throughout the day was so helpful and helped ease our nerves. We can easily say that we were not worried about a single thing because we knew they had it under control. We had complete trust that they were going to execute our vision just as we had hoped (which they absolutely did), and if something were to have gone awry, they would have troubleshooted it without any problems. Katie and Jenna from Designed & Detailed were both absolutely instrumental in making the entire weekend flow seamlessly. We are so grateful they made entire process so smooth and beyond happy we decided to work with their team.
