We were so happy to have found Dina to be our wedding planner. Of course, at first, we didn’t think we needed one, but it was required by our venue. It turns out, we really did need one. And it brought so much more ease to the day having her and her assistant, Sabina, there. Dina was a perfect balance of friendly and professional. She is warm and down to earth, and easy to work with. In initial conversations she pretty quickly understood what we wanted, and was flexible to be able to meet us at the point we were at in our planning. In the days leading up to the wedding, she was very helpful in coordinating everyone, smoothing out last minute details, and finalizing plans. On the day of, she was there early to set up, dealt with things as they came up, and did a great job of keeping the flow of the day going, while being flexible to allow things to unfold at a relaxed pace. She organized our items at the end of the night, so it was a breeze to pick everything up the next day. For all the ease she brought to the day, it was a worthwhile investment and we highly recommend her.Sent on 12/23/2019

The best friend and wedding coordinator you could ask for
Dina was my rock throughout my wedding planning process. Unfortunately our wedding was cancelled due to COVID so I wasn't able to see her perform the day of but she was truly a godsend. We all know that wedding planning in general can be a pain but throw in a worldwide pandemic and you have a full blown nightmare. Dina was helpful, organized, super responsive and professional throughout the 6 months that we worked together. I felt comfortable to rely on her to take care of both small and large tasks and I loved that I could confide in her as well. She was always available when I needed her and she always knew what to do. She gracefully navigated the uncharted waters that we were in when COVID became a reality in the US and although it didn't work out for us, I know that she has helped so many couples throughout this process and will continue to be an even stronger coordinator because she's overcome so many obstacles. If you're considering whether or not you need a wedding coordinator, trust me, you do and if you're still considering who to choose, trust me, Dina is the best choice.Sent on 10/15/2020
