So lucky to have hired Nessa for my wedding!

Nessa was an absolute dream helping us with our wedding! She provided some incredible vendor recommendations and wonderful advice, we felt in great hands! Weddings can be stressful but having Nessa there and her relaxed calming presence made such a difference. Communication was great, she was just a text or phone call away. And the venue was setup perfectly. The day was absolutely perfect, everything ran so smoothly (what more could you ask for?) and Nessa was a huge part in that. She is also able to adapt quickly, when I decided I wanted to do a grand exit and had not really thought out any of the details, she helped me execute my vision seamlessly and created the best photos!! It felt like she was truly there for us and cared about our day. My family and my new husband are so lucky to have met her and enlisted her help!

Dream wedding!!!

We hired Vanessa to do our wedding at The 1909 and it was everything we ever dreamed. She was friendly, available, and on top of every detail. We looked to her guidance throughout most of the process and felt taken care of the entire way through. She is not only a great event coordinator, but she's a great person and will make your day incredibly special! We would 100% recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thanks Vanessa!
