Professionalism and attention to detail

Heather, she is a truly a wonderful person and she does an astonishing job! She helped me in so many ways to ensure we had a beautiful wedding! She facilitated monthly checklist, had several check-in calls with me and an in-person walk thru at the venue, were all extremely important to ensure all the details of our wedding day were covered. Heather came to help us set up the venue her assistances was so valuable. The day of the wedding, Heather’s attention to detail truly made our wedding run so smoothly and her professionalism was remarkable. I am faithfully pleased we hired Heather for our wedding day! Thank you!

Phenomenal wedding planner!

Heather was an exceptional full service wedding planner! I had Heather as a wedding coordinator and event designer 18 months prior to my wedding. With expecting baby number 1 to baby number 2, she was able to quickly adapt to meet our needs for the wedding. From beginning to end, Heather was patient and professional even after rescheduling the wedding to a future date. She made our wedding glamorous with her creativity and professional abilities. With her full wedding coordination we were able to get the best vendors for my wedding. Overall, Heather’s service was phenomenal. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

A great and supportive planner

I started working with Heather almost 18 months before my wedding. We had planning meetings every 3 weeks from the time we signed contracts up through my wedding day. Heather was great at keeping me on track and making sure things were done on time, and I greatly appreciated her two cents on the vendors we discussed working with. She was very honest and generous about her experiences working with vendors in the past, which helped me make decisions based on my goals for our event. She was very organized and on top of things at my wedding, to the point where my bridesmaids would go to Heather for things instead of me (which helped make my day way more relaxing from an event management perspective). Would definitely recommend Heather to anyone looking for a planner to help keep them on track and guide vendor selection decisions, and anyone looking to be able to 100% trust someone during the event to handle all the details!
