Harlene is the Best
You need Harlene in your wedding team.
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!
