Perfect day!

Becky was incredible. Events to celebrate made the entire event wonderful. She had everything planned down to the minute. She attended meetings before the event, asked all of the questions we didn鈥檛 even know we should be asking, and ensured the other vendors were responsive.

A no stress wedding day!

Becky was great to work with! We really needed a "day of" coordinator to handle all of the details and problems that could arise so that my wife and I (and our mothers) could just have fun and enjoy the day. And that's EXACTLY what we got!
