    Best money spent

    I don’t know where to begin. I only wish I realized the importance of a coordinator and hired Donna very first thing. This is probably my biggest regret. Donna helped me with any issue that came up while planning my daughter’s wedding. We probably would have picked a different venue if I had started out with Donna. The venue we used is beautiful but the owner was very difficult to deal with. That is where Donna stepped in and smoothed things over. She made sure we knew exactly what we needed to do and everyone we needed to hire. She kept in touch with me and always took my calls. If there was an issue she resolved it, then contacted me. She did so much more for us before the wedding. I don’t know how we would have pulled this off without her. The wedding weekend was fabulous. As the mother of the bride I never expected I would get to enjoy the wedding but with Donna handling everything I did. She also did all of our flowers and they were perfect. Exactly what my daughter wanted. Our wedding I know was hard because the bride and groom lived 6 hours away so I was who Donna dealt with. Yet she made the wedding everything my daughter, who actually met Donna at the rehearsal dinner, wanted. I have so many friends who I know did not get to enjoy their child’s wedding because they did not hire a coordinator. BIG MISTAKE ! Donna was crucial in making Meg’s wedding perfect and I swear to you it was perfect. Plus with her doing the flowers it was so fabulous. I would recommend Donna be the first person you get on your team when planning a wedding. Please know that Donna is very affordable! Plus she saved us money in so many ways. She basically paid for herself. But the quality of her flowers was top notch. And her professionalism is unbelievable. We have all been to weddings where a friend of the family “coordinates”. Coordinating is so much more than telling people when to walk down the aisle!!! A wedding is such an important event and you should enjoy it. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you or your friends can handle everything. Hire a coordinator. The cost is minimal. Plus when you hire Donna you can get her as a florist also!

    The Mangels Wedding

    Donna is amazing! She really listened to my ideas and put together a wedding that is truly unforgettable! Everything was very smooth and if there was a problem I did not know of it. Donna is very professional and very kind.
    Donna also made my bouquets and boutonnieres. They were absolutely beautiful!
    If you have a chance to work with Donna, I highly recommend it!
