Ease, Grace, and Cool Confidence
Lina has this way of making the most crazy situations feel like a walk in the park. I work at a wedding venue, so I've seen some planners ungracefully coordinate. But Lina does it with ease, plenty of grace, and an air of cool confidence. That is the kind of person you want heading up your special day, 100%.Sent on 03/12/2020

Hiring Ileen was one of the best things we did for this wedding! Not only is she an absolutely amazing person, she’s an extraordinary coordinator. We hired her as our wedding day manager, but we received so much more than just “day of” assistance. We had multiple meetings with her, and she helped us pick up last minute items, which freed us up to spend time with incoming friends and family. We also had quite a few logistics on our end, to make it easier for our guests, but Ileen handled all of it like the pro she is. She managed to get all of our guests onto the shuttles to go to and from the venue/lodging to the USAFA Chapel without issue, and no one was left behind. She also made sure that the entire wedding party was eating snacks and drinking plenty of fluids, and she made sure that all the parents were taken care of, too. She additionally took all of our décor and set it up for us, and then gathered it up at the end of the night, which was a huge relief for us as the couple, as well as our wedding party and family, because we could just enjoy the day and not worry about details. I have had so many compliments on how incredibly smoothly our wedding day went, and I know that our day would not have gone as flawlessly as it did without her help! I’d 100% recommend her to anyone! Do yourself a favor and book her now; you won’t regret it!Sent on 03/25/2018

Ilene and her team were amazing to work with for my niece's wedding, primarily for the day of wedding coordination. She was responsive, knowledgeable and accommodating. Not only is she an expert in planning and logistics but her calm and friendly demeanor is comforting and all know they are in good hands with Ilene and her team. Extraordinary circumstances with the reception forced Ilene to jump in unexpectedly and troubleshoot a variety of challenges which she did expeditiously and graciously. The ceremony and reception were wonderful and much of that is due to Once Upon a Wedding. Thank you Ilene!Sent on 08/31/2017
It's always a pleasure when we have the chance to work with this company. We highly recommend!
Ileen from Once upon a wedding is magic. Literally the woman makes magic on a wedding day making the most unbelievable dreams and beautiful days come true. She takes care of things that you didn't know you needed done and finds options and ways to create the visions you see in your head and pinterest. She takes the hassles of the wedding day off of you so that the only thing you see on the bride's face is a smile because she enjoyed every moment of her day.
Ileen loves weddings! She has a knack of bringing together the right professional uniquely suited for each of her clients. I especially appreciate her attention to detail and the ability to structure services tailored to her clients specific needs. Ileen will give you the gift of enjoying every moment of your special day, you will be making memories, not worrying about the details. Patty
