Im literally sitting on the couch right now and I just watched our video again and I am crying. Colleen was AMAZING. She made the day and she saved the day so many times. I have heard nothing but amazing things from everyone at the wedding about her being absolutely on top of it! She took care of 'problems' before they were even problems. I heard later from some guests that Colleen saved the day more than once, and i am beyond impressed. She took care of everything the day of the wedding, including all decorating and making sure it was exactly how i wanted it! I am very type A and I was having a hard time believing that I could relinquish control on such an important day. Not a single thing was out of place, not a single thing went 'wrong'. It was perfect and I have her to thank! Truly, Thank you Colleen from Alex and I. Both of our parents are still raving about her being in control and making everything smooth. She was wonderful! She deserves 6 star reviews if I could give them! Every bride should get to feel as relaxed as I did knowing that someone who knew what they were doing was running everything!

Colleen was incredible as she helped us with month-of coordination for our July wedding. She was ALWAYS quick to respond and she really knows her stuff when it comes to weddings in SLO. She was extremely helpful when it came to ensuring all our vendors were compliant with insurance, so that we didn't have any surprises on the wedding day. Without her, things really could have turned south. Instead, it was a flawless day. Even when things didn't necessarily fall into her typical set of responsibilities, she stepped up to the plate. She was truly the perfect balance of flexible but organized. The day ran so smoothly and organically and I think that was in huge part to Colleen's skill and experience.

Colleen was a godsend. She was our "day-of" coordinator, but she was right there with us from the start, so "day-of" seems inaccurate. When we booked with Eventful, we had literally done NOTHING and, like a champ, Colleen put us right on track. She is a SLO local with a Cal Poly degree in event-planning AND a decade of experience in the Central Coast wedding/event industry, i.e. the perfect wedding planner trifecta. Her vendor recommendations were spot-on; even after I did a ton of my own research, I realized that the caterer and photographer she suggested in the beginning were the perfect fit for my tastes/budget (a testament to her knowledge of the local wedding industry!)

There were times in the planning process when I was inches from having a meltdown and her calm energy and reassurance saved me. For example, a few weeks before the wedding I told her that I was freaking out about the possibility of El Nino rainstorms ruining our outdoor wedding. Instead of saying "Don't worry, it won't rain" (*my hubby's response), she said, "Don't worry, if it looks like it's going to rain, I'll be 100% on top of it" and went on to give full details of how she and her team would save the wedding. As a bride, to hear that someone other than the groom or your parents cares about your wedding that much is a HUGE comfort. I felt like my wedding was in good hands.

On our big day Colleen and her team went above and beyond. Let's just say I bit off more "DIY" than I could chew, so on the morning of, I was at the venue, scrambling to finish up. When Colleen and her team showed up at 11 am, she was like "You need to go! We'll take care of this." So I did, leaving a lot of loose ends, and when I came back, the venue was completely transformed, and looked just the way I had envisioned it. The rest of the day/night went smoothly, and if there were any issues, I had no idea, because Colleen handled them.

I am so grateful to Colleen for helping make our dream wedding a reality :)
