Dear Carla,Sent on 08/09/2018
Now that all the parties are over. We wanted to say thank you for making this day so amazing. I am so tough but I never cried so much in my life. After all I’ve been through and part of it you witnessed I found my true love and my dream did come true. You were the biggest part of making this happen for us.
I am definitely glitzy, but I come from a very humble background. My parents and grandparents came to the US w nothing so my sister and I could have a better life, and we made it. We are living the American dream.
You’re not just a wedding coordinator. You’re someone that stands for freedom and is something we all need to fight for today. We take it for granted . You’re an amazing accepting person and you are making a difference in the world. If more people were like you we would not have such hate and prejudice, but I do believe changes start out small and spread. So, I wish you the best . I hope you find your true love also. Someone who knows how special you are and just appreciated every little aspect of your amazing personality and give you all the love you need. You’re amazing!
Guido and Chad

Shade Coleman of Details Made Simple helped to make our wedding run smoothly from start to finish. Whenever we reached out to her she was quick to respond and ensured that the small touches of our wedding were executed well. My husband and I were very pleased with her service and will surely be recommending her and the company to others. I didn't think I would need a day of coordinator but I surely did!! Thank you Shade!Sent on 04/17/2019

Best Decision We Made
I can’t tell you how many times my husband and I said that hiring Carla from Details Made Simple was the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process. Carla completely saved our wedding from the disaster it was heading to be. I had never considered hiring a day-of coordinator, since our venue provided someone. However, once we started having some communication issues with the venue, we began looking for outside help. We were blown away by the number of 5 star reviews for DMS and knew we needed to talk to them. They were also much more affordable than we expected, and they were easily the most vital vendor for our wedding. Let me tell you, these 5 star reviews are well earned.Sent on 08/06/2019
Once we hired Carla, our vendors that had already worked with her were excited and couldn’t speak highly enough of her and DMS. Our vendors that had not worked with her before reached out to us to comment how great and on top of things she was, and how they are looking forward to working with her again. Carla handled all of our vendor coordination leading up to the wedding. You don’t really realize how much work and stress this saves you in those final days leading up to and especially the morning of the wedding.
Carla helped us in the months leading up to our wedding with everything we needed. The trickiest, though, was navigating the difficult personalities and inexperienced staff at our venue to ensure that our day still went off exactly as planned. Carla was so easy to talk to and work through our frustrations with, yet she remained completely calm and professional at all times.
I don’t even want to imagine how different our wedding day would have been without Carla. She brought along their new coordinator Amy, who was also amazing. All day, our families and bridal party just kept telling us how lucky we were to have them. Our venue continuously dropped the ball, and the DMS ladies were running around covering up the venue’s mistakes. They even pushed back to ensure that our ceremony was still outside and finished before the expected rain. My husband and I weren’t even aware of everything that went on day-of until afterwards. We were able to enjoy our day and spend time with friends and family without fully understanding all of the things that could have gone wrong, had these ladies not been there for us.
If you are on the fence because your venue provides day-of coordination, just remember that they work for the venue, not you. The ladies at DMS will work for you and make sure your day is exactly as you want it to be. If you have any hesitation about your venue or any of your vendors, or you’re just starting to feel overwhelmed, reach out to Carla. The second we started working with her we were able to get excited about the wedding again. Just think, this will probably be the best decision you make throughout your wedding planning process :)
I had the pleasure of working with Kim and her team at the Curtis Center in Philadelphia. Details made simple took care of many things I usually do such as timeline and logistics, making my job easier and allowing me to perform my craft to the fullest. I highly recommend them as they certainly know how to plan a wedding and how to deal with adversity and sudden changes that often happens in weddings.
Great to work with!
Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
