Kind and experienced consummate professional.

My Greek-American wife Nina and I reached out to Donna for assistance with planning a wedding on Nina's home island of Kefalonia. Donna is highly experienced and has contacts all over the island. She has great taste and is creative and flexible. Her checklists make it easy to stay organized and make sure all the steps for a proper Greek wedding are fulfilled. When our wedding in Greece did not end up happening for personal reasons, Donna was extremely gracious and flexible. When we returned to Kefalonia for our anniversary the following year, she helped plan an elaborate anniversary surprise for my wife (boat cruise, photo shoot, high class dinner) just on our wedding deposit with no additional charge.

Wedding planning is a stressful time, and Donna's greatest strength (other than her planning skills) will become clear after meeting: her incredible warmth and kindness. It's obvious to anyone who works with Donna that she plans weddings and other events because she truly loves it and takes pride in designing the perfect occasion for couples. We would recommend Donna's services to anyone looking to plan a wedding on Kefalonia. She is the best!

Donna was an amazing wedding planner. I am a event planner in the USA. Sooo writing her a review is something I was looking forward to doing. She was AMAZING very well organized and always had a smile and the “can do “ attitude. The people that she hired to do certain things for the wedding were absolutely amazing especially the DJ that kept our guest dancing the entire night . I just wish we had another child to get married because we would definitely hire Donna to help us with a Wedding

You could not wish for a better Wedding Planner who catered for every wish!

From the very first contact, Donna was professional, caring and re-assuring, listening to our brief and getting it spot on with her solutions and suggestions. The attention to the large and the small details of the day pulled everything together to make it absolutely perfect. Many guests said it was the best wedding they had been to. It was so re-assuring to have Donna there throughout the planning and on the day to inform us of what needed to be done and when and to ensure everything went smoothly. I cannot recommend Donna at Kefalonia Weddings highly enough.
