Lisa was a Godsend!! If I could give her a million stars, I would and it still wouldn't be enough!! Everyone said what a "calm bride" I was, well, that's because I had Lisa and her team in my corner! I hired her for "Day-Of-Event Coordination", but she does so much more than that. She met with my banquet coordinator, she spoke to all my vendors, she organized my time-line and she even offered to drive me to the chapel herself because the limo was late! (Limo was not her fault at all!!).

I was sad to see my wedding over because I had so much fun working with Lisa! :)

A well-oiled machine!!!

Lisa was so wonderful and such a pleasure to work with. She was so well prepared for all of our meetings leading up to the wedding and she was incredibly proactive and gave us so many wonderful ideas and helpful tips. She is a true professional who is so knowledgeable and has so much experience in wedding planning. She is also realistic and down-to-earth and told us what we needed to know! Lisa and her team executed our vision perfectly and were so open-minded and flexible to work with. Lisa also had extensive experience at our venue, the Delamar West Hartford. Her assistant, Nicole, was also a godsend on the day of our wedding, handling many emergencies for us with kindness and grace!!! If you are planning a wedding in the New England area, you need to hire Nightingale Events!! Our event could not have gone so smoothly without their incredible guidance and support!

Can't imagine the day without Rachel and the Nightingale Team!!!

TLDR: HIRE THEM NOW – if you are reading this review, it means you are considering Nightingale. Book them immediately- you will not regret it.

We hired Nightingale for Wedding Coordination as they came recommended by our venue and I just have to say: WOW. I had the HONOR of working with Rachel. I am a pretty organized person, so I was able to book vendors and get all the initial portion set up. The amount of work Rachel put in those last moments before the wedding is almost indescribable. Let me just tell you that I felt that Rachel had my back the entire time when did have some hiccups with a different vendor. Rachel took care of it and handled it so well. Leading up to the day, she had us thinking about things we would never consider thinking about. Since I have never planned a wedding before, Rachel was the expert and mastermind to pull everything together. When I was booking vendors, it was once one was done, I booked the next, but the last 1-2 months, you are talking to ALL of them it is a very daunting task.

If I were to do it all over it again, I would rebook Nightingale in a heartbeat.

The day-of was magical. Rachel was my bridesmaid, friend, and me all in one. She anticipated ALL my needs and was the voice of reason the whole day and night. Our groom gal, Amy, was there for us too and I swear, they all were so so helpful so that Mark and I could enjoy our day. We felt like guests at our own wedding. Our job was to enjoy the day and they made it happen beyond our expectations. We didn't interact too much with the third gal but thank you so much for setting up the details of the room so nicely!

Thank you Rachel and the Nightingale team for making everything come together so beautifully. Rachel, as I have said in our texts over and over, you really are the best. Thank you. Truly.

Lisa DiBenedetto, the owner and creative genius behind Nightingale Events, loves weddings and it shows! I met her when she was a guest on Weddings with Zita. Her knowledge of the wedding industry is impressive and her humor is delightful. After the interview, Lisa joined me and the crew for dinner. If you'd like to watch the interview, here's the Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QRQ2L_NcGw

For a ceremony musician a good wedding planner can take the guesswork out of the logistics of an event, which will translate to a smoother and more seamless wedding. Lisa is the consummate professional. She had contacted me weeks before the wedding to make sure that I had everything that I needed and even delivered my check upon my arrival. Her attention to details such as those I mentioned permeated the entire ceremony.

When someone asked should I hire a planner for my wedding - the answer is YES! And, I immediately suggest Lisa. She is an amazing organizer, always has a smile and friendly greeting for both guests and the vendors she is working with and she creates a stunning event every time! I look forward to many more opportunities to work with her. Lisa is the one you want to help tell your love story and bring it to life. Highly recommend.
