    Implementing Our Vision with Creative Expertise

    Yael’s design experience and expertise were invaluable in important part of our wedding’s success. We came to the table with some clear design ideas, so we didn’t need as much a day coordinator as much as someone who could implement the our vision using their own creative flourish to ensure it looked right.

    From the amazing wedding canopy (Chuppah) in our ceremony to the perfect setup of our book-focused centerpieces, Yael and the Designs That Matter team did an impeccable job, paying attention to big-picture vision as well as the smallest details. Yael even went above and beyond to ensure the venue staff had implemented the details correctly.

    We couldn’t be happier with choosing Design That Matter, and would highly recommend Yael and her team for anyone’s event needs.

    Beautiful Decor

    Short Read: Yael made our dream wedding decor come true, was easy to work with, and made everything fit within our budget. I highly recommend her services for any event!

    Long Read: We hired Yael to guide us through the sometimes overwhelming process of choosing wedding decor. We had some general ideas in mind and she was able to not only turn them into reality, but enhanced them to a level that felt like a dream. She took the time to get to know us beforehand and figure out our likes and dislikes. She was easy to communicate with and had everything prepared in a timely manner. She also added some of her own touches into the design of the venue that truly brought the whole concept together. I cannot recommend Yael enough. When you choose her as your decorator, you will absolutely love what you get!
