Harlene is the Best

Harlene was everything we needed in a wedding planner. My partner and I experienced a long planning phase due to limited availability from covid, and Harlene was always there to guide us every step of the way. She is incredibly professional and knowledgable about the industry, but more importantly she is a kind, patient, and compassionate person. Harlene consistently provided a calm and reassuring voice during times of high stress and uncertainty for us, and never lost sight of our goal to plan the exact wedding we wanted. On the wedding day, Harlene and Brittany made sure my partner and I were able to properly enjoy all the festivities in addition to coordinating all the vendors and services. We could not have done any of this without her partnership and we are eternally grateful for her kindness and compassion.

You need Harlene in your wedding team.

Yet another Covid wedding review! That's how you KNOW that Harlene DEFINITELY knows what she's doing.

When my partner and I decided to get married, we had only 6 months to plan and NO idea where to start. We contacted other coordinators but heard back from Harlene right away. After hopping on a call, we knew we had to hire her.

Despite our small guest count, one of the most stressful things about a wedding IS the guests: will they have a good time? Will they know where to go? Will they be comfortable? And ESPECIALLY during Covid, will they be safe? We expressed all of these concerns to Harlene and she constantly reassured us that she would keep them in check. I remember that she kept repeating, "I have no problem being the bad guy," and with that, we were sold. (Thankfully, all of our guests followed protocol, but guests can often be unpredicatable!)

Planning was a crazy, turbulent whirlwind. Harlene made sure to keep us on track with a detailed checklist (and timeline on the day of). She also was extremely helpful in connecting us to other vendors. The next stressful thing about planning a wedding: the vendors! We ran into a few hiccups with some of them–we ended up cancelling a reception venue one month before the wedding(!!) and had some minor issues with our ceremony venue the weekend before the wedding (!!!) But Harlene served as the liaison between us and them, taking some of the stress off our plate. She was professional even while we were freaking out. She also made several trips with us to see venues and carefully walked us through the vision/plan for the day.

As a result of working together for 6 months, we pulled off the most beautiful wedding that checked off all of mine and my partner's wishlist. I wish we could get married again just to hire Harlene again! Hopefully, we'll be able to work with her in the future for other events and I'll definitely recommend her to anyone else for their planning/design needs!

#1 wedding coordinator. Harlene gets it done!

We could not have asked for a better wedding coordinator! As soon as we got connected with Harlene, she immediately leapt into action, helping us choose vendors and plan out all the details of our special day. Organized, professional, friendly, and honest are just a few of the words that come to mind right away when I think about our experience with Harlene. She was always on top of things, despite a very short timeline and so many moving parts. She was also very direct and candid in offering advice and guidance for certain parts of the wedding, which we greatly appreciated when our perfect day came together! We cannot thank her enough for making our wedding simply amazing. Thank you!
